St Ives, Cornwall Cottages
Within a minute's walk of the St Ives Harbour, this cute apartment is a great base to stay in this very popular and famous Cornish town. Porthia is a simple ground floor apartment in a quiet little lane (parking at one end, art gallery at the other...) which is presented in a clean style. Originally a fisherman's cottage, this old granite building has been converted into two apartments with Porthia on the ground floor behind a bright front door!
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. Refurbished by its current owner, Porthia is bright and comfortable, a convenient base for a couple wishing to explore this lively seaside town with its warren of narrow cobbled streets and superb beaches.
