About the property

2 Bedroom Apartment with views of St Michaels Mount from the 11 acres of grounds

Kenegie Manor is a 500 year old Grade II listed Manor House which has been sympathetically restored and converted into a number of individual apartments. Set in 11 acres, guests benefit from the use of the Manor's Tennis Courts, Indoor swimming pool, Sauna, Hot tub, Children's play area, Games Room, Pitch and Putt golf course and restaurant/bar.

Kenegie Manor is situated in 11 acres of quiet private grounds near the village of Gulval, within walking distance of the beach and Penzance and is 6 miles from St Ives. The surrounding grounds have spectacular views of Penzance and the very popular fairy-tale island of St. Michaels Mount.

The newly restored first floor Manor House Court apartment has views over the quiet courtyard. It has an abundance of character - with high ceilings and striking features such as the large 3 metre high sash windows. The apartment is reached via a gravel pathway from the ample parking area leading through to the private Manor courtyard.

Inside and from the lobby, the large lounge is equipped with free Wifi, a Wide Flat Screen TV, DVD and Freeview, leather furniture and a Sofa Bed allowing the property to accommodate up to 6 people. The dining area also seats 6 comfortably.

Unique to this apartment is the large separate Galley kitchen which is fully fitted with appliances such as Washer and Dishwasher and having the benefit of an additional utility area.

The spacious master bedroom has views over the courtyard and is fitted with modern bedroom furniture. The second double bedroom has twin beds. The high-spec modern bathroom includes a bath and power shower. Every detail in the construction, finish and furnishings ensure a stylish property provides a comfortable stay. The apartment also includes a highchair and cot.

The Manor House apartments share a private garden at the front of the house, which provides ample space to sit and enjoy the sunshine.

Kenegie Manor, now painstakingly and sympathetically restored, enjoys it's new role as playing host to the guests seeking tranquility and other creature comforts.

Penzance, Land's End and the picturesque fishing villages of St Ives, Mousehole and Newlyn are all close at hand. St Ives is a very popular Cornish resort town and is approximately 5 miles away and offers the world famous Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth museum. Surfers and bathers are spoilt for choice, with beaches such as Sennen and Gwithian (both Blue Flag acclaimed) and Carbis Bay, Porthmeor Beach and Porthcurno, to name a few which are only a short distance from Kenegie. The area has Theme Parks and holiday attractions such as Flambards, The Eden Project, Minack 'open air' Theatre and the National Seal Sanctuary and many more.


The apartment is within walking distance of the local pub, with Sainsbury, Tesco & Morrisons also conveniently close.

About Mr Andy King

We are a couple in our forties, now living in Nottingham. We have owned the apartment in Kenegie Manor for 10 years and it is a great retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern day life. We try and get down to Cornwall a couple of times a year, (which isn't enough!) and hope to move down to Cornwall someday, but until we do we rent out our home so others can benefit from this beautiful apartment and location. We have a great house keeper who looks after the property and lives locally in Gulval, she is really lovely and is on hand if any of our guest need her.

Mr Andy King purchased this apartment in 2007

Lovely High Ceilings - Comfortable and Clean

  • 5 of 5

The Owner Nicola made us feel very welcome. Fresh milk in the fridge, tea and coffee, sugar and cookies, a really lovely touch after such a long journey. The apartment was very clean and well equipped and the beds were lovely and comfortable.

Our children enjoyed the onste facilities. And all the staff on site were very polite and accommodating.

The location is great for all the beaches and restaurants. We would recommend a visit to St Ives and the Portmero bar - great cocktails.. try the bramble fizz. The Seafood Cafe was excellent in St Ives too.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review and thanks for the lovely comments, I'm glad you and your family had a lovely stay and found the apartment clean and comfortable. Its nice to hear that you enjoyed the onsite facilities, the private parks new owners have invested a considerable amount of money and time recently to improve the facilities, without spoiling the tranquil surrounds and superior setting of Kenegie Manor. Thanks for the Cocktail tip! I will make sure next time I'm in St Ives to try one.

Nice apartment, great area

  • 3 of 5

Nice apartment clean and comfortable accommodation, site nice not to far from Penzance 5minute drive. Site facilities could do with a bit of an upgrade a little bit of paint and modernised especially swimming pool changing rooms and bar and restaurant area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review of our apartment and we are glad you had a comfortable stay. With regards to the facilities, which can be used by guests of the Kenegie Manor Court apartment, over the winter period the owners of the park's facilities have spent over £20000 refurbishing the Pool, poolside area and changing rooms. They have also installed a new Nordic Sauna and a hot tub, and they continue to invest with a new games room which was installed in March and are due to open a small park shop for essentials such as bread and milk, in May. We have seen a substantial improvement to the facilities since the new owners have taken over, while still trying to maintain the quiet and exclusivity of this private holiday park.

Great holiday flat!

  • 5 of 5

The flat was as described, and everything was provided as promised. The place was clean and quite well-maintained - one or two things didn't work (such as the bathroom extractor fan and the double bedroom's ceiling light) but nothing that detracted from comfort and convenience. The owner left us a pint of milk in the fridge when we arrived which was greatly appreciated after the long journey. (And there was enough dish washer tablets provided which was also a great convenience!) It would have been nice to have two keys to the flat than just one. The swimming pool was good fun, and the bar/pub on site was also a great convenience.

Nearby attractions that we really enjoyed: Penzance's Jubilee Pool and Chysauster. We also walked to Marazion to St Michael's Mount. A short drive away - we really enjoyed the Telegraph Museum at Porthcurno and the Barbara Hepworth Museum at St Ives. And all the lovely beaches.

I would definitely recommend this flat!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review and kind recommendation. We must apologies for the light not working in the bedroom, albeit there are two bedside lamps in the room this should have been working and would encourage our guests in future to inform the housekeeper who would have replaced the bulb. With regards to the extractor fan, again this could have been brought to the attention of the housekeeper, however since your stay, we have been to the property and the extractor fan seems to be working fine, this does need to be turned on (switch above the bathroom door) in order for it to work.

Pleasant apartment- onsite facilities disappointing

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment ,very comfortable and airy. Facilities on site a little worn out, bar/ cafe not inviting.

Could have done with more local info. Found best beach on last day.

Take away food very limited and pool only open limited times a shame

Owner's Response: Thank you for you review, we are so glad you loved our apartment. I agree, with regards to the facilities, which can be used by guests of the Kenegie Manor Court apartment, could be more inviting, we unfortunately have very little influence over the running of these which are separate to Kenegie Manor and our apartment, but the new owners of the park are spending a lot of time and money to improve the surrounding area and its facilities, while still trying to maintain the quiet and exclusivity of this private holiday park. I will however pass on your comments to the new owners, who are keen to improve and continue to invest in the holiday park. With regards to local information, we do provide some details via the homeaway site, and we are mindful that our tastes are not always the same as others, however in future we will include within the apartment more information on the surrounding area should it be required. Many thanks

An excellent holiday apartment. Very spacious with all the facilities you need.

  • 5 of 5

The property was excellent. The staff were very helpful and we had a great holiday. The holiday park where the manor is situated is a bit 'tired' but this didn't impact our holiday and it was a lovely and peaceful location.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we are pleased you had a great holiday in our apartment. Unfortunately, we have very little influence over the running of the facilities outside of the Manor and our apartment, but the new owners of the park are spending time and money to improve the surrounding area and its facilities, while still trying to maintain the quiet and exclusivity of the private holiday park. However, whilst these facilities are free to any guest of the Kenegie Manor Court apartment, I do realise that they could be more inviting and will pass on your comments to the new owners. Many thanks
