About this property

Superbly positioned overlooking Porthminster Beach, this gorgeous three-storey cottage with its own parking and stunning sea views is the perfect place for holidays with family and friends in St Ives.

Aptly named Mordros (Cornish for ‘sound of the sea’), you’ll be reminded of just how close you are to one of Cornwall’s best beauty spots with the turquoise bay on constant display from several sea-facing windows, and a Juilet balcony from which to enjoy the sea air and views. Contrasting beautifully with limewashed stone walls and polished wooden floors, soft blue tones and tasteful furnishings invite you to ease into laid-back coastal living.

Quirky alcoves and an ornamental fireplace nod to the property's heritage, while three beautiful bedrooms and two bathrooms (one with a fabulous roll top tub) offer plenty of space for six guests. The cottage has been thoughtfully equipped for complete comfort too, with luxurious beds, plantation blinds so you can enjoy a lie-in, a fabulous living room with flat screen TV and Sky, and a kitchen /diner complete with electric stove.

Of course, your St Ives getaway wouldn’t be complete without spending time at the beach, and Mordros sits within a short walk of one of its best. With its prestigious Blue Flag status, award-winning café, and views that stretch from the St Ives harbour to Godrevy Lighthouse, Porthminster Beach is simply perfect for sunbathing, swimming and relaxation.

*Please note that Mordros is set over three floors with steep internal flights of stairs so may not be suitable for those with limited mobility

*This property backs on to the main road into St Ives so is perfect for accessing all of the town's restaurants and attractions
