Porth House is a beautiful and comfortable holiday home for groups of up to seven and equally suited to smaller groups and couples who want just that little bit more space. A double fronted period property, which has been completely refurbished but retaining many original features, including stained glass windows and original shutters. It offers sea views, a private south facing courtyard garden, a large open plan kitchen, 4 bedrooms and secure garage parking. Located between a five to ten minute walk from the house to either the Tate Gallery, Barbara Hepworth museum, award winning Porthmeor and Porthminster beaches, surf school, the Harbour or St Ives’ many restaurants, shops and galleries.
This is a beautiful bright town house equally ideal for couples or groups. With so many original features and carefully chosen art it really is a lovely house to spend time in. It is perfect to use as a base to explore St Ives due to its central location so you won't need to use your car. However parking can be difficult in St Ives in peak holiday season, and if you do want to explore the surrounding area its very useful that we have parking on site. This secure garage has direct access into the kitchen and a useful after beach shower for surfers (or even swimmers).
The large open plan kitchen has been designed with sociable holidays in mind with a breakfast bar with barstools and a table overlooking the garden seating up to 8. It has an adjoining seating area with beautiful afternoon light. Off the kitchen is a useful utility room with a loo and plenty of storage for beach and surf equipment.
There is a large living room with TV/DVD for those who want to escape somewhere quieter, with plenty of books and games. This room over looks the garden.
There are 4 beautifully appointed and comfortable bedrooms. All have plenty of storage and thoughtful lighting.
Bedroom 1: kingsize bed and ensuite shower room.
Bedroom 2: Kingsize bed
Bedroom 3: 2x single beds
Bedroom 1x single bed.
All the beds have comfortable mattresses with high quality bedding.
The family bathroom has a large bath and rain head shower, sink, loo and a supply of fluffy towels.
Unusually for St Ives we also have a secure and private paved garden which is south facing and a real sun trap. It has mature trees and its own 'beach hut' which children particularly enjoy.
We have excellent wifi connection.
