The Tate gallery is built on Porthmeor beach on the site of the old gas works, the shape of the building echoes it's old use. Porthmeor beach area has an industrial past as an area of fish stores and net lofts, now these buildings are used for artists studios. The beach itself became popular in the 70's and is the main surfing beach in the town, providing a contrast to it's genteel neighbour the Porthminster Beach which being close to the station was popular from the Victorian times.

Alongside the surf, Porthmeor boasts a lovely beach cafe/restaurant, shop, takeaway, beach cabins, surf hire, lessons and life guards. It is also the location for the famous Tate gallery. There are fantastic walks from the beach along the coast out to Zennor.

1 Salting Porthmeor Beach St.Ives

  • 5 of 5

The website was very accurate, what you see there is what you get, very beautiful. The property was very clean and well maintained. Jane kept in touch with us after our booking and sent us detail maps to follow, which were a great help. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone. We liked the art galleries, restaurants and the walks around the area. We loved to see the excited dogs as they arrived at the beach with their toys ready to play, they were as excited as the small children that arrived for their time playing on the beach, it was great.

1 The Ropewalk

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for our honeymoon at 1 The Ropewalk for a week and found everything fantastic. The location can not be bettered and the cottage is lovely for cosy nights in. We loved listening to the stormy weather outside the dormer window in the bedroom. Practically being on the beach was great and also within 1 minute of St Ives' restaurants and pubs. The parking is also a real bonus. Will definitely be returning I hope soon.

Excellent cottage, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Ropewalk numerous times and it really is the most perfect cottage. The decor is simple and stylish and the bed is one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The property is spread over three floors. The bathroom on the lower floor, the kitchen and lounge/diner on the second floor and the double bed is on a mezzanine balcony above the lounge. It's a great use of space. There is also an integral garage which is a god send (and keeps the seagull poo off your car!). The location is the real 'clincher' though. It is situated less than 50 yards from the fantastic Porthmeor beach and at night you can lie in bed and listen to the waves crashing on the beach. There are numerous fantastic restaurants in St Ives and this property is no more than a five minute walk from all of them. Highly recommended.

1 ropewalk

  • 3 of 5

The house was in an excellent spot, close to all amenities and the beach' it was clean and well maintained. We were met at the property by a very helpful gentleman who advised us the best way to reverse into the garage' which although small, was a bonus. I was unable to give the property a higher rating because of the sleeping accommodation, this was a mezzanine above the living room. The sloping roof was on one side so the head room on that side of the bed was very low, I found it impossible to stand up on that side and would imagine no other adult would be able to do so.
