About Chapel Watch

Chapel Watch is just 200 yards from Porthmeor or Porthgwidden beach, this top floor two-bedroom apartment is part of the extensively renovated Rockcliff Court building and is quite possibly the most perfect base to spend a St Ives ‘break away from it all’ or one of your main holidays of the year. You are just a few minutes’ walk from St Ives harbour where the majority of shops branch off onto Fore Street and where you will find alfresco dining along the harbour front plus a selection of cocktail bars and your good ol’ traditional Cornish pubs. The Tate Gallery is 5 minutes’ walk away either across Porthmeor beach or along Back Road West and your nearest corner shop which sells foil to fine Cornish ales and ciders, Norway Stores, is just a 2 minutes’ walk at most.

Chapel Watch has been finished with a keen eye for good solid furniture, comfort and a home from home feel along with some lovely pieces of artwork, fluffy towels and bed linen you can't wait to snuggle down into. In the master bedroom, you have a king size bed, built in wardrobes with plenty of storage and hanging space and a TV. The twin bedroom has two single beds and across the hallway is the shower room with its large wash basin and corner shower. The kitchen, living and dining area is well spaced out with the kitchen housing integrated appliances including the washer/ dryer and dishwasher - what every couple or family need when coming away to relax! There is a comfortable two seater sofa and two tub chairs that can be moved around easily to suit plus a large TV with DVD player for those relaxing evenings where going out seems just too much. For meals in, there is a small dining table with neat stools that store under which seats four.

There is free WiFi at Chapel Watch and is on the top floor of Rockcliff Court where Island Retreat is on the ground floor (being a duplex apartment that sleeps 6 (also on Orange Roofs' website)) so if you are two families or groups of friends, it's a great place to be altogether! 

Please note that Chapel Watch is on the top floor of a building and so has external steps as well as a flight of internal steps before reaching the apartment which is all on one level.

Well maintained beautiful modern apartment, situated near to the beach and all amenities. Well equipped and very comfortable. The only problem we had was parking. The island parking is near to the apartment but it was full all the time we was there. At the moment there is no charge for parking in St ives so whether this parking situation might change after the 17th may when parking charges are to be paid. Even though we had an issue with parking we would stay again as it's such a lovely apartment.

Excellent stay, would definitely stay again, clean, comfortable and spacious, superb shower, the only things would be to get a full five stars would be a pair of tongs for the kitchen along with a few things such as condiments and oil perhaps? other than that it has everything you need. Thanks

The communications and help from Orange Roofs leading up to our holiday were excellent. Couldn't have been better. And our accommodation Chapel Watch was a delightful place to stay. Having two the two bedrooms it was just right for two friends on holiday together. It was on the 2nd floor so maybe not suitable for someone who has difficuly climbing stairs - although there are very sturdy handrails. The location is superb - two beaches within 5 minutes walk, and a view of The Island through the kitchen window. A only a 10 minute walk into the centre of St Ives - either down Fish Street or down The Digey. Marvellous holiday.

Really lovely accommodation, perfect location for the town and beaches. It was great not having to drive anywhere. The apartment was well equipped and cosy. We would definitely book again and recommend to others.

Chapel Watch is the cleanest property we have ever stayed in Lovely apartment. Ideal location especially if you have a dog who needs a nice run first thing in the morning. The sunrises were phenomenal In essence everything one needs for a relaxing break - location, minutes from beaches, amazing restaurants, car parking and great walks. Sorry forgot to mention the shops!! Comfort - tastefully decorated and furnished and we were blessed with amazing weather - a harvest moon and sunsets which were great for loads of photos Even the stairs which I must admit I was a bit dubious about having to carry our little dog up and down all the time were fine as they are in two stages - I thought it might have been one long staircase

Absolutely fantastic apartment and FAULTLESS service from Sam and Ross. We have been coming down to St Ives now for 30 years and Chapel Watch is BY FAR the best accommodation we have EVER stayed in. Rest assured WE WILL BE BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN??

We stayed during Storm Angus in the warm and comfortable apartment which is just like the photos. It has all the kitchen equipment and space needed to do meals if you are eating in. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom with shower worked perfectly. It is a short walk to the shops in St Ives, beaches and headlands. All the arrangement to book and access the flat were clear and worked. We would use this appartment again. Thanks to all who keep it spotless and for the surprise scones jam and clotted cream
