Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in St Ives - Men an Mor, Porthminster beach

Porthminster beach, central St Ives - Superb seaviews - 2 props sleep 2 - 10

Situated on the seaward side of the Warren in a conservation area of St Ives stand Men an Mor Cottage and Apartment. Perched above a large outcrop of blue elvin rock, between Porthminster Beach and the harbour, the large picture windows frame a spectacular outlook, from St Ives town to Godrevy lighthouse.

www.beachshacks.co.uk for further information

Relax on the window seat and watch the world go by, boats sailing past, and various wildlife including seals, dolphins and cormorants. Men an Mor cottage and Apartment are perfect for holidays at any time of the year. In the winter stay warm inside whilst watching the waves crash over the rocks below. During fine weather, look out over the azure blue sea or walk the few steps to the golden sands of Porthminister beach. The train/coach station and car park are a 3 minute walk. Both properties have free wifi

Men an Mor: Perched on the rocks between Porthminster beach and the harbour sits Men an Mor cottage and apartment so named after the slab of blue elvin which protects them from the sea. Men is Cornish for rock or stone and Mor means sea. The setting is striking with an expansive view from St Ives harbour to Godrevy lighthouse. When the tide is out the golden sands draw out the beachcombers, whilst at night the harbour lights shimmer across the water. This peaceful idyll is occasionally broken by stormy weather with the sounds and spectacular display of the Atlantic crashing against the rocks below, best viewed from the comfortable window seat with a glass of your favourite tipple. Men an Mor is favourably situated, in a conservation area, on the seaward side of the Warren, next to Porthminister beach and its famous café. The train station and car park are a 3 minute walk. The harbour, only a stones throw, provides a full range of eating establishments.

St Ives: St Ives has long been famous for its artist colony drawn to the area by the fantastic nature of the light. It was at the vanguard of the Modern British movement and those inspired by the town include Virginia Woolf and Alfred Wallace. This influence is still strongly in evidence today, with the world renowned Tate, St Ives and a wide selection of good quality smaller galleries showing an ever changing display of art from post war up to the present time. Music is also an important feature of the town. Throughout the year the pubs and the Guildhall play host to various bands from local to world music.

All of these artistic achievements are celebrated during the St Ives September festival, which runs for the 2nd and 3rd weeks of September, a popular draw for both UK and international visitors.

Spectacular view

  • 5 out of 5
For the view alone this must be the best location in St Ives. The view is spectacular. Could not bear to close the curtains as we didn't want to miss anything! The cottage has everything we needed for a lovely holiday. We had a wonderful time, and hope to be back next year *****

Gorgeous!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Men an Mor cottage for a week in March this year with our two young boys. Everything was perfect. The photos on the web site are accurate - we enjoyed sensational views, a perfect location, and every home comfort. Restaurants, cafes, shops, banks and supermarkets are all within an easy stroll. St Ives is beautiful, and an excellent base for exploring the Cornish countryside. Jane was extemely helpful during our enquiry and booking process, with everything running smoothly. Thank you so much! We will certainly stay again next time we travel to England and would recommend Men an Mor to any of our friends and family.

A real find!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the cottage for a week in Feb 2010 and absolutely fell in love with it! The cottage is so homely with the most incredible views. Flowers and chocs left by the owner were a lovely welcoming touch. You are literally minutes from the beach and town which has beautiful little shops and so many good restaurants I don't know where to start! Have already recommended the cottage to all my friends and we'll most definitely be back!

The old town of St Ives juts out to sea and is surrounded on three sides by water, creating almost an island. There are many beaches all with beautiful golden sand. Relax in the sun, take a walk over the sands, paddle in the sea or try your hand at surfing with help from fully qualified instructors.

For those who prefer walking, the coastal path is on your doorstep. Set out from Porthminister beach and continue to Carbis Bay, then to Hayle and beyond. Alternatively walk around the coast of the town until you reach Porthmeor beach, then continue along the beautiful and wild coastal path to Zennor, a must for nature lovers with bird and seal colonies and occasional dolphins. Look out for the famous Mermaid on the way and take sustenance at the local pub before the return walk or for those captivated by the warming fire, the last bus back.
