ST. IVES COTTAGE HOLIDAYS IN SPACE AND COMFORT, WITH ON-SITE PARKING

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday cottage in St Ives - Porth Enys

Self-Catering Holiday Cottage, St Ives, sleeps up to 8, parking, garden

'Porth Enys' Holiday Cottage is a Georgian terraced house, thoroughly modernised but full of character and retaining many original features. The Cottage is situated on a raised terrace above the main road into St Ives. The town centre, restaurants, shops, the Tate Gallery, St. Ives new swimming pool and leisure centre, and all other facilities are only a short walk away, and involve no serious hill climbing! The harbour and all St. Ives' beaches are within easy walking distance, and views all around St. Ives Bay can be had from the car parking area behind the house or by walking a few yards to the 'Malakoff'.

The cottage has a very light, airy and friendly feel and visitors say it is a 'Super house in a great place'. Our return bookings prove it!

During July and August our visitors are mainly family groups, but outside this period our discounts make 'Porth Enys' very attractive to smaller parties who appreciate the space, comfort, and facilities provided.

Porth Enys and the accommodation:- : 'Porth Enys' was built in the 1830's, is a Grade II listed building, and is very Cornish in character. It has been substantially modernised but still retains many original features. It has a very friendly and peaceful atmosphere which is much appreciated by our guests. It is very spacious, airy, and has a lounge suite you can sink into! The ground floor accommodation comprises a large lounge with widescreen TV, DVD recorder, video and hi-fi, a separate dining room, and fully equiped kitchen. Upstairs there are five bedrooms(four with their own TV) - two double bedded rooms, one single, one twin bedded room, and a childrens room with two bunk beds at floor level. All the rooms are carpeted with the exception of the kitchen, and there is central heating throughout. There is a bathroom with a bath and electric shower over, and there is a second separate toilet.

Exterior and location:- : Porth Enys is situated on a raised pedestrian terrace some 10 feet above the main road into St. Ives. Effectively, it is built into the side of a hill, the car parking area providing views over the town and bay as it is well above the roof of the house. Whilst very attractive, it is very difficult to photograph to do justice to the position. There is parking for up to three cars, and a small, south facing, and sloping garden. In high summer the courtyard immediately behind the house is a sun trap for much of the day. A patio table and seating for four is provided.

Access to the town takes only a few seconds and, whilst not flat, no serious hill-climbing is involved.

St. Ives:- : Porth Enys is central for all St. Ives' facilities. There are many art galleries, including Tate St. Ives and the Barbara Hepworth museum. There are many excellent restaurants, shops, and pubs all within easy walking distance. The harbour and all St Ives marvellous beaches are within easy reach, including Porthminster and Porthgwidden family beaches and the famous Porthmeor surfing beach. St Ives swimming pool and fitness centre are a short walk away. St Ives is also a splendid centre for walkers, artists and anglers, and base from which to explore the magnificent Cornish countryside. Land's End, The Lizard and its special coves, Flambards, Newquay and its indoor water-world are all easily reached. Alternatively, park your car, relax and let the world go by. Why not visit the St. Ives September arts and music festival or enjoy St. Ives' special Christmas / New Year.

Notes

  • Porth Enys is a large cottage especially suited to family holidays. Outside school holiday periods, discounts are offered for for smaller parties who will appreciate the space and comfort of the property. The discount, of up to 25% on the above rates, varies according to the precise dates required and the size of the party - please enquire. A damage deposit of £60 (£100 when the party exceeds our recommended maximum numbers) is required. Please also note that where a booking is made within 6 weeks of the start of your holiday, payment is required in full on booking. Sample Discounts: for parties of 1/2 persons for weeks beginning 11th May 2013, and 18th May 2013 it is £100, for parties of 3/4 persons the discount is £50. Discounts are offered for weeks beginning 7th and 14th September 2013 of £100 and £50 respectively. In June and early July the discounts are £200 and £100 respectively. For the October half-term weeks the discounts are £40 and £20.
  • Bookings will not normally be accepted from groups of single persons under the age of 30 years, or from all male or all female parties consisting of three or more persons. The owners reserve the right to accept or refuse bookings at their absolute discretion.
    Porth Enys normally books from Saturday to Saturday. Occasionally, Porth Enys may be available for short breaks but only to previous visitors, only out of peak season, at our sole discretion, and subject to a minimum charge of £250 due to the cleaning costs of such a large house. Small party discounts will not apply to short breaks. Electricity and Gas charges are included in the tariff. Car parking for up to three cars is on site. Linen is not included but may be hired at a modest additional cost. Please do not hesitate to email if you require any further information. Email responded to within 24 hours, normally much less.
