Apartment, 5 Minutes Town/Beach, Bus/Train Stations, Sea Views, Parking For 2 Cars

Pelennor is a 2-bedroom apartment, ideally located 5 minutes’ walk from beautiful Porthminster Beach and St Ives town with its delightful mix of shops, galleries, pubs, cafes and restaurants. Why not wake up to lovely views from the Juliet balcony across the rooftops to the Island and St Nicholas Chapel and the ocean beyond…then breakfast in the bright open plan bay window looking towards Carbis Bay. We have re-furbished Pelennor to a very high standard, preserving the original corniced ceiling in the lounge/kitchen and added solid oak wood flooring. The two bathrooms comprise a contemporary ensuite and family bathroom with spacious corner shower and the added luxury of a free-standing bath. The bedrooms both have charming cream Victorian-style bedsteads and adjustable wall-mounted TVs. We're less than 10 minutes’ walk from bus and train stations; access by car could not be easier with space for two cars right outside. Ideal for two couples, a family of four, or a romantic break for 2. The property is not only within easy access of the beach and town but there is also the local tennis and golf clubs. St Ives Harbour Hotel offers full spa and leisure facilities. Contact stives-harbour-hotel.co.uk/spa

About Mark Shelley

Hello, my name is Paula and my husband Mark and I started visiting St Ives in November 2008 and have returned every year since. St Ives and the Cornish coast have become very special to us and we decided to try and buy a little piece of it in Autumn 2012. We were delighted to take possession of Pelennor in February 2013 and spent the next six months carefully preparing it for our first guests.

Mark Shelley purchased this Apartment in 2013

Why Mark Shelley chose St Ives

Pelennor is part of Porthminster Terrace, which has so many advantages, not least its proximity to one of the most beautiful beaches in England. We love the character of the apartment with its high ceilings and fabulous views to the front and back and the fact that you can enjoy all the convenience of being in St Ives at the same time as being able to escape from the hustle and bustle when you want to.

What makes this Apartment unique

One of the most obvious benefits is the view in both directions; towards the 'island' with the ancient St Nicholas Chapel perched on the hill top in one direction, and Carbis Bay and the distant horizon in the other. Our apartment is equipped and furnished to a very high standard, being brand-new in August 2013. Finally, to find a property in St Ives town with one parking space would have been a challenge - we have two!

                                                                Lovely flat in an ideal location

                                                                Lorna Matheson-Bosworth

                                                                Spent 4 nights in this lovely flat. It is immaculate, beautifully presented and a comfortable retreat after a busy day exploring.

                                                                Would thoroughly recommend this flat to others.

                                                                Gorgeous views from the master bedroom and living area and the vital parking space are also fantastic extras.

                                                                Would love to return again especially out of season as I enjoy it when it is a lot quieter.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                So glad our guests enjoyed their stay. We are lucky to have such lovely views and the luxury of a couple of parking spaces right outside.

                                                                Fabulous apartment in a great location

                                                                Michael B.

                                                                The property was a very high standard and was very clean and well looked after.

                                                                Very nice to have off street parking as can be a problem to park in St Ives.

                                                                Only a few minutes from the centre of St Ives and all bars and restaurants.

                                                                Nice surprise to have milk,coffee,tea and biscuits supplied for when we arrived.

                                                                All my family loved this apartment and can’t wait to return very soon.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Just wish we had stayed longer

                                                                Mark D.

                                                                A beautifully refurbished apartment in a great location. Everything about our stay was effortless and the apartment is done out to such a high standard it was a real pleasure to stay and we intend to book it again when we return to the beautiful town of St Ives.

                                                                It’s a 5-10minute stroll to the sea front. It has off street parking right outside.

                                                                We have stayed in a number of apartments in and out of the uk and this was the best yet. If you are browsing the huge number available in St Ives then stop and book this one now as you will not get better.

                                                                We thank these guests for their extremely positive review. It is always gratifying to hear that our guests enjoy this corner of Cornwall as much as we do and that we can contribute to their experience by making their stay as comfortable as possible.

                                                                Fantastic apartment, great location can't recommend it highly enough

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Thanks for the review, feedback always much appreciated.

                                                                Excellent apartment, very clean, great facilities and communication from owner.

                                                                Roxanne A.

                                                                This is the second time we’ve stayed here with our children. An excellent apartment with great facilities in a great location. On arrival it is spotlessly clean. Excellent communication from the owners make it a stress free process. Hopefully we will return again soon.

                                                                Owner's Response:
