St Ives, Cornwall Cottages
Located a stone's throw from the Tate St Ives in one direction and same from the sea in the other direction, Porthia Cottage is a fantastically situated ground floor apartment, absolutely ideal for a couple looking for a good value retreat in one of Cornwall's most famous towns. What was once a fisherman's cottage, this old granite building has been converted into two apartments and is very conveniently situated in the centre of St Ives. It lies halfway along the street leading to 'The Island', also known as 'St Ives Head', the headland with a tiny chapel on its peak, which divides the town's two main beaches, Porthmeor (great for surfing) and Porthgwidden. It is also a short walk away from a car park (weekly tickets available). Refurbished by its current owner, Porthia is bright and attractively decorated, providing an ideal base for a couple wishing to explore this lively seaside town with its warren of narrow cobbled streets and superb beaches.
