About 1 Porthmeor Road

Just moments from the fine grain sandy beaches of Porthmeor, Porthgwidden, Bamaluz and the Harbour, with all eateries and places to relax with your loved ones on your door step, 1 Porthmeor Road promises a family or couple the chance to unwind and relax without travelling any great distance.

1 Porthmeor Road is a perfectly located St Ives holiday home just a few steps from Porthmeor and Porthgwidden beaches and a short stroll to St Ives harbour. The house is in the heart of Downalong, so holidaying at 1 Porthmeor Road means everything is easily to hand whether you want to book surf lessons, have a BBQ dinner on the beach, casual strolls around the shops, while away time by having lunch with a view, catch up culturally by visiting a few museums or galleries and organise boat trips and stand-up paddle board hire too. Your nearest car park is on the Island in St Ives and is a minutes' walk away. The house is spacious and comfortably accommodates a family of six or two couples staying or provide a romantic retreat for a couple. Shake off the sand from the beach and enter into the large living area with wood burner (for the chillier winter nights) through into the family-friendly dining and kitchen area. The kitchen is fully-equipped for self-catering in St Ives and your local deli on Norway Square or Fore Street offers plenty of Cornish food goodies to stock up the cupboards. There is a separate utility area with downstairs WC, a back door leads to an enclosed courtyard with shower to rinse of the days surf and salty toes and a perfect area for storing surfboards, bikes, wetsuits, buckets and spades! On the first floor, there are two bedrooms with a double bed and twin beds and also the family bathroom with bath, WC and separate shower. The second-floor bedroom has zip and link beds so it can either be configured as a twin bedroom or king size bed with over roof top views to the sea..

From the moment we arrived at 1 Porthmeor Road we felt at home. Beautifully decorated, comfortable and fitted to a high modern standard, we had everything we needed for a week away from it all. Perfect location near Porthmeor Beach we literally slung the wetsuits on and hit the beach- the outside tap was very useful for a post surf session hose down and the outside area great for drying off the suits (with a warm outside shower!). We could amble into the harbour area and we were central for everything. The little touches of detail were also nice to receive- there was a bottle of Prosecco waiting, some lovely tea and coffee, dishwasher tabs, toilets rolls, cloths, etc. that meant we didn't need to dash out immediately to buy things. We could ease into our holiday and unwind. The information provided to us during the booking was invaluable and the attention to detail through this entire experience was fabulous- I can't rate this company enough. We will definitely be back and it's no surpirse No.1 Porthmeor is already booked for next October half term!

Stayed here for long weekend to celebrated my Fathers birthday. The house was in such a great condition literally 5 minutes from the harbour with all the shops and 30 seconds from Porthmeor beach. The house was perfect with open plan downstairs which was great for all the family to be sociable. Fantastic outside space with outdoor shower which was great to store surf boards. We brought our little one( 1 years old) and were provided a great high chair and travel cot so very useful!! Look forward to booking the place again.

A great property. This is second year we have stayed here and I have already booked for next year. It was lovely and clean on arrival Which we all appreciated as some places aren’t. So well equipped with dish washer and tumble dryer both making it an easy holiday and essential when you have soggy clothes or towels from beach or rain! Great that the outdoor shower is now hot too. Only real quibble is the carving knife is too blunt to deal with st ives bakery bread ! Thanks.

We had the best holidays ever staying at this house. It’s a stone throw to the beach and we , with our four kids (14, 12, 10 & 5) had a brilliant week with Porthmeor beach as our playground. The house was immaculately clean when we arrived and it had absolutely everything we needed for a self catering holiday. I’d say it was the best equipped house we ever stay in. The TV and WIFI was super for down time especially after busy beach days. Highly recommend this property and hopefully when we will return to St Ives, this house will be available.

Fantastic spot. Ideal for the town and dog walking on the island. Our second visit and would love to come again. We love Porth gwidden cafe so we could not have found a better location

Great cottage & great location, we shall definitely be back. Perfect cottage for 4 adults, 2 children & the dog. Rooms are very big and beds comfortable. One of the best cottages we have stayed in for comfort, space & location. There is plenty of space in all the bedrooms for a travel cot. Service from Orange Roofs was great start to finish. Needed to contact Sam a few times due to pipes freezing (it was a very cold & snowy week). She was great at keeping us updated and super helpful, can’t recommend them enough.

Absolutely loved this cottage. In the twenty years we have been visiting St Ives two or three times a year, this is the nicest we have stayed in. Loved the location, the decor, the convenience of parking and the town. Ideal for dog walking. And proper beds, I have frequently gone home with back ache after staying for a week in some of the properties. Amazing weather all week!!

Really lovely cottage. I echo everything the previous reviewer said. Location for Porthmeor Beach is fantastic, especially when you have a super-excited spaniel with you! You are also only a couple of moments away from the harbour and town so you get the best of everything. The cottage is lovely, really well designed clean and has everything you need. Our party consisted of four adults, a toddler and a dog and we had more than enough space, it would easily accommodate six adults comfortably. We have visited St Ives many times and will definitely be staying here again.

A FANTASTIC cottage in the heart of St Ives. Very clean on arrival and easy to keep clean and sand free from our dog. The beach is 30 seconds away. Great little courtyard for pets or smokers. The beds are really comfy and the bedrooms spacious. Bathroom beautiful and downstairs, the kitchen is stunning, We have been been coming to Cornwall for a long time and know it well but never in St Ives. The cottage is a real GEM and will be back next year.

Gorgeous kid and dog friendly house, great location by the beach and harbour but tucked away. Lovely fittings, bedding and attention to detail - plenty of space as well. We went for a pre-Christmas break and it was warm and cosy in the house with empty beaches and plenty of sunshine and welcoming pubs and cafes. Even parking was fine! Brilliant service from Orange Roofs. Will return next winter.
