Nestled in the very bosom of Downalong is Pendynas. Its name means Headland Fort and you couldn’t be much closer to the headland between Porthgwidden and Porthmeor beach than at this glorious family home, lovingly restored to promise luxury, comfort and a very warm welcome. Pendynas is on Carncrows Street which means the harbour, all St Ives’ beaches, shops, restaurants, galleries and traditional Cornish pubs are literally a pleasant stroll away. It comes with three bedrooms, four underfloor heated bathrooms, sea views from the Island facing bedrooms and, being a true jewel in this crown, has parking at the rear of the house. Whether you want to treat a loved one and come away for a romantic St Ives holiday or bring the family and fill the house with merriment creating memories, Pendynas has what it takes to leave you feeling happy, refreshed and wanting more.
Starting from the ground floor up, you enter from the rear terrace into the bespoke shaker kitchen which is well-equipped and open plan leading onto the dining area where there is a large table and comfortable seating. There is access to a shower room on the ground floor between the kitchen and dining area as well as directly off the rear, so if you're covered in sand and needing a hot shower to warm up, no need to traipse through the house first! There is also a shower outside to wash the worst of the sand off. From the dining area you step down into the living room with its comfortable chairs and sofas and large Smart TV for family entertainment.
Up onto the first floor, there are two bedrooms both ensuite. The first bedroom is a twin bedroom, with the ensuite having a bath with shower over, WC, wash basin and heated towel rail. The second bedroom has a king size bed with an ensuite shower room with WC, wash basin and heated towel rail. The views from this bedroom are over to the Island and sea views beyond that.
The top floor is designated all to another king size bedroom with ensuite. The feeling of space and light is just dreamy. The views are of the Island and the sea beyond. The ensuite has a large shower with WC, wash basin and heated towel rail. Each of the bedrooms have Smart TVs with built-in DVDs (just in case you need some of your own space for a while!).
There is Fibre Broadband throughout the house so gadgets galore could come on holiday with the teenagers. There are board games, puzzles and cards for in-house family togetherness when you're all not out enjoying the spectacular beaches on Pendynas' doorstep.
Outside there is a bistro table and chairs to take in the start of the day with a morning coffee or toast the evening with something chilled and delicious. The space just outside the shower room is ideal for bodyboards or a surfboard if you are coming on holiday fully-armed to play in the surf plus a place to hang rinsed wet suits.
It can't be denied that the owners have intended to offer a beautiful holiday home for you to stay; one to unwind and relax in, feel the quality all around and go home feeling whole again.

We've just returned from a fantastic 7 nights stay. The cottage is as described, very well equipped, comfortable, clean and just a delight to be in. The location is fabulous, literally 2 minutes from the beaches and in a perfect location for the shops and restaurants. Parking of 2 estate cars was fine. We'd definitely come back. All the info on the orange roofs app was also extremely helpful and well thought out. Thank you

We have been coming to St Ives on holiday for over 40 years, as children and with our own children. This year was our first dealings with Orange Roofs and staying at Pendynas and from the beginning it has been a really good start. Orange Roofs have been extremely helpful from the booking to any issues/questions we had during our stay. Pendynas is probably the loveliest house we have stayed in over the years. It was modern yet comfortable, every thought that has gone into the house is benefitted by us as occupants. We were so impressed that we have already booked for 2021 and cant wait to return.

Pendynas is a beautiful cottage in a quiet street close to all amenities. Everything about the property screams quality, everything you need is there. The bonus of parking at the property make life so much easier. This is the nicest most luxurious property we have stayed in.

What a happy find. St Ives is my go to place and this cottage fills all my expectations. We have stayed here 3 times now with a fourth booked in spring. So convenient to soak up the atmosphere and within walking distance of pubs and eateries. Parking is onsite but tight. Building going on further up back road meant lorries needed to access. Weather was interesting due to storms but made for some amazing photos.
