Porth Enys is a granite-fronted building situated on a pedestrian-access terrace above the main road into St Ives and Porthminster Beach is a short walk away. It is less than 250 metres from the main streets but far enough away not to be troubled by the hustle and bustle of the town. Parking and garden access is to the rear.
The cottage is centrally heated throughout and all areas are carpeted apart from the kitchen and bathroom. Wi-Fi is available.

Linen and Heating Details
Please note that duvets and blankets are included but linen (sheets/pillowcases) is not included in the basic hire charges. Visitors should therefore provide their own bottom sheets, pillowcases, and top sheets/duvet covers. Linen Hire can be arranged, please contact us for details.
Heating and lighting costs are included in the tariff as is car parking, which is on-site.
Since the town centre is so close, all the restaurants, pubs and shops are very convenient to your holiday cottage. The Tate Gallery, the Barbara Hepworth and Town Museums are only a little further away, as is the leisure centre and swimming pool. The railway and bus stations are both close to hand making the cottage an ideal base for a walking holiday.
Views of the whole of St. Ives Bay, and elevated views over the whole of the harbour, can also be had by walking 50 yards to the Malakoff. This is a great spot to watch any of the firework displays held in the harbour.
Nearby Attractions/Things to do
St Ives is a great centre from which to explore West Cornwall. 40 minutes in the car will take you to Lands End past Zennor, Cape Cornwall and Botallack where many scenes in Poldark were filmed. The Lizard can be reached in about the same time and you can explore the beaches or the villages such as Coverack, Helford, Porthallow, or Cadgwith. A little longer in the car will get you to Port Isaac, the home of Doc Martin, or to the Eden Project. There are a number of National Trust properties to visit and Flambards with attractions for all ages.
