1 Beach Court
About the home
This apartment is a stone's throw from one of St Ives' best beaches and has views across St Ives bay. Whether you want to stay and relax in its light, modern interior or get out and enjoy the sea air, you're just seconds, (30 metres!) from lovely Porthgwidden Beach and its award winning restaurant/cafe, the Island and the quaint streets of Downalong. No steps! Rare in St Ives. A stylish, light, ground floor apartment with sea & coastal views, it is ideal for 2 to 4 people - we lower rates for two. Ideal for short breaks and weeks throughout the year (CH linen and wifi included) in one of the best positions in St Ives. Autumn is wonderful in St Ives - don't miss it.
The apartment is ideal for both short breaks and longer stays whatever the season; constant hot water, central heating and fresh white bed linen are included in the price - no meters gobbling coins! St Ives has something to offer all year round - Tate St Ives; renowned restaurants; numerous art galleries; coastal walks; great surfing and fishing; a programme of cultural events and specialist shops.
Many aspects of life in St Ives have featured on TV programmes, including its artistic heritage, its wonderful coastal walks and the variety of excellent restaurants in the town.
You'll immediately feel at home in Beach Court, a stylish and contemporary self-contained ground floor apartment in a former artist's studio. Fully refurbished and modernised, it offers a comfortable sitting room, with integrated dining area, kitchen, two bedrooms with new double memory foam beds and a shower room with power shower. It has a private courtyard entrance, ideal for sitting out in the afternoon sun.
Light floods into the apartment in the morning and evening, and is enhanced by the clean white interior and stripped original wooden flooring throughout. We've decorated it with original paintings and photographs by local artists, true to its origins as a 1960's artist's home and studio.

Further details outdoors:
Space is at a premium in St Ives, particularly in the Downalong area, as anyone who has visited St Ives will know! Beach Court is a private courtyard with flowerbeds, and provides a secluded sitting area for guests. Ball games and the hanging of washing are forbidden in Beach Court, so it is a quiet and attractive area to relax in. Porthgwidden Beach, with its acclaimed Porthgwidden restaurant and terrace cafe are only steps away. The Island, a former neolithic hill fort, is on the doorstep and ideal for walks, and has views across to the famous Porthmeor Beach (a surfers' paradise) as well as St Ives and Godrevy Bay. The nearest car park is the Island car park, 100 metres from the apartment.
An amenity pack is provided to start you off.
All linen and towels (including tea towels) is provided, but you must bring your own beach towels.
Our house manager will prepare the apartment for your arrival. You will be given a code so you can access the keys whatever time you arrive.
A breakages deposit of £100 is required, which will be refunded within two weeks of your departure, subject to a satisfactory property inspection.
A 25% non-refundable deposit is required to secure your booking. The balance must be paid four weeks before your arrival.
The West Country / Cornwall region
To see exactly what the views from the top of the Island look like, go to the Coastguard St Ives' site and look at the web cam from their look-out; camera 2 shows Porthgwidden beach and St Ives Bay!
It’s not surprising that Coast magazine has voted St Ives 'Best Family Holiday Destination' - May 2010. The Porthgwidden Restaurant and Cafe has just been awarded 'Best Beach restaurant' - May 2012 - and it's steps from the One Beach Court apartment. St Ives has five wonderful beaches and truly breathtaking scenery from the coastal paths. It’s an all year round resort so there’s always something going on. There is a wide range of pubs, excellent quality restaurants, unique shops and art galleries, showing work by local artists from the thriving and renowned art colony. The Tate St Ives is world renowned and attracts visitors throughout the year.
St Ives seems to have a 'micro-climate' as it really is much milder here than other parts of the UK. The coastguards' website gives accurate information. Our thermometer at Beach Court did not dip below zero this past winter!
Porthgwidden Beach, which is 30 metres from the apartment, has retained the highest standard for water in the Clean Beach Guide, published in May 2010. The Lonely Planet Guide, published in June 2009, describes St Ives as "the perfect holiday heaven".
The St Ives / Downalong area
The Tate St Ives is open all year round, as well as the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden. St Ives Festival takes place in September, with art, music, dance and literary events and poetry to interest all ages.
The location of Beach Court is absolutely ideal for those who want to either spend the day on the beach, take the short walk (five minutes at most) into town, or to venture along the coastal path towards Carbis Bay or Zennor. There is a car park very close to the house - the Island car park, as well as a beach shop and high-quality beach cafe and renowned restaurant on Porthgwidden Beach. Car park users can pay for parking using the RingGo system from 1 June 2010 so no need to save change. Register in advance at www.myRingGo.co.uk/register to save time when you arrive.

We booked beach court for a long weekend in beautiful Saint Ives to make the most of the walks, art and restaurants. The owner was very friendly and helpful throughout the booking process. Beach court is clean, well stocked and cared for, in a quiet location near the smaller town beach. With a powerful shower, decent cooking facilities, and cosy bedrooms, the accommodation offers a good base camp to explore the area and somewhere nice to return to at night. Located so close to the island means you can easily enjoy the best spot to catch the amazing sunsets and sunrise over the town. We could have happily stayed the week.
