About this property

The Terrace View is every inch the dream coastal retreat. Tucked away in one of the England’s prettiest seaside towns just 50 yards from the centre of St Ives, this luxury town house with its fabulously styled and beautifully equipped interior, creates the perfect place for magical holidays spent with friends and family on Cornwall’s west coast.

Recently refurbished to a superb standard, this historic property (which was once the prestigious residence of a ship’s captain), is set over three floors and combines elegant living areas with light-filled bedrooms and outdoor space. Sash windows, whitewashed floors and original fireplaces adorn the tastefully styled rooms while sumptuous furnishings and a palette of naturals and cream create the perfect atmosphere for relaxation.

Sleeping nine guests, The Terrace View’s bedroom layout is especially well suited to families who have younger children in tow and include three doubles, a twin and a single. Superior mattresses and crisp linens mean you can look forward to snuggling down for a wonderful night’s sleep, ready to feel refreshed for your adventures along the coast or for sun-soaked days spent down on the beach. Outside, a private courtyard garden with its table and seating is where you’ll be able to enjoy outdoor dining, and if you head up the stairs to the top garden you’ll discover a lawn with palms and flowers, the perfect spot for picnics with the children.

Ideally placed within the town, The Terrace View can be easily reached by foot from the train station which is approximately 300 yards away. For those who prefer to drive, the house boasts three private parking spaces (a real rarity in St Ives), so you’ll be able to pack all your beach gear including surfboards, kayaks and deck chairs and make the most of your seaside getaway. Porthminster Beach lies a short stroll away as do the harbour, shops, restaurants and Tate St Ives so if you’d rather not use your car during your stay you won’t need to. However, if you do fancy exploring the rest of St Ives Bay you’ll be within easy reach of some of the area’s best beaches including Carbis Bay, Upton Towans and Gwithian, while Mounts Bay is just 30 minutes away.
