About the property

Apartment in St Ives, Cornwall, England - Tranquil Location 5-10 Minutes To Beaches

Go to bed with the doors open and you will fall asleep to the sound of the sea; step out onto the covered balcony and be instantly connected with the coast line and beach. You may even spot dolphins in the Bay. Have breakfast outside under cover in the early morning sun and plan whether to go out or simply stay where you are. The view is stunning. This Light Filled apartment is on the first floor of an Edwardian Country House which was built for the St Ives School of Artists. There are 2 bathrooms (one en-suite), with a large, high ceilinged Bedroom with Sea views and a door to the Balcony. The Main living room is double aspect with French Windows also leading onto the balcony. The kitchen/diner has a range cooker, fridge, freezer, washing machine and dish washer. The property is set in a Sub Tropical Garden It is accessed via 2 sets of steps down from the lane outside. It is suitable for couples of all ages and those with children, however, children should be supervised on the balcony. There are 7 other properties in the building, some of which are private residencies and not rented out. The house in situated in Treloyhan which is the most exclusive area of St Ives. In springtime the scent of wild garlic is wonderful. The whole area is a haven for wildlife which includes Owls, Buzzards, Green Woodpecker and a myriad of smaller birds. Foxes and Badgers may be glimpsed. Specimen trees are in abundance in the area. The best way to enjoy all of this is by walking. The pedestrian pathway leads through the Gardens on the Seaward side of the house down a pathway lined with ancient moss covered granite walls to Haines Walk . Then you must decide whether to turn right to Carbis Bay where you can enjoy the facilities of the Carbis Bay Hotel, the beach with its water sports and marvellous walks or turn left towards St Ives itself. The location is perfect. Another option is to walk to the Tregenna Castle Hotel where you can be enjoying a round of golf within 10 minutes with probably the best view of St Ives from the 12th Fairway! Tescos is also a 10 minute walk as is our local the Cornish Arms. What more could anyone ask for? This is genuinely a special place. This apartment is also perfect to explore the Poldark series locations.

About Susie

We love this area and property and were visiting regularly but we now have grandchildren and busy lives so able to let the apartment for others to enjoy.

Susie purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Susie chose St Ives area

Our first sightings of the coast line here were of huge areas of golden beaches glimpsed through the trees as we wondered down to the sea shore. The tide was out and we instantly fell in love with the scenery.

What makes this apartment unique

Glorious golden sandy beaches, lots of trees, clean air and friendly people. Supermarket less than 5 minutes and close to the sea-side town of St Ives and yet we enjoy total tranquillity and stunning sea- views. You can sit out in all weathers under the cover of the balcony gazing out onto the Bay and at the unspoilt coastline. Numerous cafés and restaurants nearby in Carbis Bay or. St Ives. Endless places to visit with the South coast and nearby rivers for day trips.

Fantastic view & some really nice touches

  • 5 of 5

Just had a great week at this roomy apartment. A previous reviewer said it, whilst it's hard to capture everything in a photo, the main bedroom and lounge are very well proportioned and have such stunning views.

The apartment has more or less everything you need (even binoculars!) & the directions given once you've booked are spot on. A handy supermarket is an easy walk for any last minute purchase (or Costa - we missed our usual coffee machine).

We noted an earlier review which mentioned the parking & it's really helpful to look at the owners photos shown. We had no problem with anyone using the spot and managed to turn our car ok each time. But you could stay here & just walk, the beaches and St Ives are close enough for this. We strolled down to the Carbis bay hotel beach club restaurant & had a great meal one evening.

The housekeeper is really helpful and unobtrusive; they keep the garden looking lovely & the fresh flowers were a lovely touch.

Missing that gorgeous view already.....

Amazing views

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this well equipped and comfortable flat. We spent a lot of time on the balcony and ate all our meals enjoying the view.

We were met by Jill who explained everything perfectly.

Walked to Carbis Bay, Porthminster Beach and St Ives. Guests should be aware that these routes are quite steep in parts, the views are stunning.

We can recommend Ocean Sports at Carbis Bay for kayak, SUP hire and lessons.

We ate at The Cornish Arms one evening, tasty meal and participated in the pub quiz, good fun.

Good base for exploring this area of Cornwall.

Only downside was that the approach to the property is fairly narrow and the parking space was not always fully available. Difficult to turn our car (Volvo estate) around in the road.

Stunning view of carbis bay

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Tramorna View really made our whole holiday experience In St Ives one of the best we have had as a family of five.

Waking each morning to the spectacular view is breathtaking and we enjoyed dining on the balcony on many nights during our holiday.

For us we like a home from home environment and the property was well equipped with everything we needed for a two week stay.

The short distance to the beach or the town meant we were able to choose between the peace and tranquility of the apartment, a relaxing day on a safe beach or a day in the active town of St Ives.

We had an amazing holiday!!!!!

Beautiful View Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do it justice. The main bedroom is roomy with a panoramic view of the bay through a large Bay window. Just beautiful. The kitchen is well equipped, and comfortable, and the lounge is very comfortable and cosy. Other reviewers have complained aboutv the steps to the apartment from the parking spot. They are nothing. A short flight, a short flat walk (5 yards), and then down three steps. No problem. The second bedroom is small, but adequate. The showers are great. Continuous hot water, and plenty of it. The heating is more than adequate.
