About the property

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

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 area

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time and will definitely recommend it to others.

Fantastic location just a short walk away from town and beach.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in October 2016. Which is always my favourite month to stay in St Ives. Weather is usually mild and place is not too busy as it is in summer months.

The apartment was unbelievably clean, modern and fresh. Had everything you needed. Will definitely return soon.

Good location, quiet, lovely flat.

  • 4 of 5

A lovely flat, beautifully done. Love the modern freshness. The only downside has been the Internet- yes it's technically connected but I couldn't download my paper etc and usually resorted to my phone and 4G.

The "stunning" view of St Ives can only be seen if standing up at the back bedroom window!

Overall though we've loved the flat and would strongly recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Really glad you enjoyed your stay. We've noticed the internet has been a bit slow recently; we're looking into it and hope to rectify it soon. We receive many complements on our view of the bay from the lounge and the view towards the town and St Nicolas Chapel from the Juliet balcony in the master bedroom. Thank you for your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you to St ives again soon.

Fantastic Apartment in a Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from a week stay at the apartment and can't fault it.....well equipped and maintained in a great location in our favourite place in the UK.....St Ives. Had an absolutely fabulous Christmas. Booking and property access arrangements were simple and communications were excellent. Paula and Mark were so easy to do business with and their attention to detail at the apartment made our stay most enjoyable and relaxing. Don't be put off by the shared entrance hall, once you enter the apartment you will struggle to find fault regarding the facilities and cleanliness. We stayed there with our daughter and son-in-law and we are planning to return in 2017. Excellent location for exploring St Ives and the surrounding areas........having a property with two parking spaces was a real bonus. The absence of a wardrobe in the twin bedroom was a minor inconvenience but there was apply draw space, a coat stand with hangers and under bed suitcase storage space which more than compensated for this.

St Ives Apartment

  • 5 of 5

It must have been about 50 years ago when I last ventured into St Ives. My partner and I usually now holiday Lisbon but the only time you should not go there is between November and April because the Portuguese think that central heating is for wimps.

So for my birthday Sarah booked the Pelennor for just three nights, we have since rebooked for 5 nights early next year. The apartment has everything you could wish for and is fully equipped all the mod cons. It is well maintained and it has 'central heating'

Also it has car parking and if you have never been to St Ives before then trust me, parking a car in low season is pretty bad but in high season it must be impossible. Waking into town is just down the hill, turn left at the first junction and then go down the steps on the right and you into the heart of the town.

So to summarise, the apartment is well maintained, it is well situated to get in and out of the town, it has all of the comforts of home, car parking for two cars and 'central heating'.

Sarah and I are looking forward to visiting Pelennor next year'
