Situated on the seaward side of the Warren in a conservation area of central St Ives stands Men an Mor Apartment. Perched on a large outcrop of blue elvin rock, in a central town location between Porthminster Beach and the harbour, the large picture windows frame a spectacular outlook, from St Ives town to Godrevy lighthouse used in to the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf.
Relax on the window seat and watch the world go by, boats sailing past, and various wildlife including seals, dolphins and cormorants. The apartment is perfect for holidays at any time of the year. In the winter stay warm inside whilst watching the waves crash over the rocks below. During fine weather, look out over the azure blue sea or walk the few steps to the golden sands of Porthminister beach. The train/coach station are a 3 minute walk. Men an Mor apartment includes a good sized private parking space - this is situated at a 10 minute walk drop off just outside the apartment

St Ives has long been famous for its artist colony drawn to the area by the fantastic nature of the light. It was at the vanguard of the Modern British movement and those inspired by the town include Virginia Woolf and Alfred Wallace. This influence is still strongly in evidence today, with the world renowned Tate, St Ives and a wide selection of good quality smaller galleries showing an ever changing display of art from post war up to the present time. Music is also an important feature of the town. Throughout the year the pubs and the Guildhall play host to various bands from local to world music. The apartment was previously a studio for a local artist, we have retained some of these features, the studio lighting & the industrial vibe of the spiral staircase.
All of these artistic achievements are celebrated during the St Ives September festival, 8th to 22rd September 2018, a popular draw for both UK and international visitors. St Ives is also now famous for great eating establishments, there is also a food & drink festival with local musicians from 11 - 13 May 2018.
