About Zennor

'Zennor' (3 Porthmeor Apartments) is a beautifully finished and cared for apartment which gives a warm and generous welcome. Every effort and thought has gone into making sure you have everything to make it a special break away whether it's a short break as a couple during the quieter months or your annual family summer holiday, it truly oozes everything you need from an almost beachside apartment.

Being so close to Porthmeor beach means you are also moments from the Island and its chapel keeping guard of the headland between Porthmeor and Porthgwidden. Keeping the sea on your left, if you walk past Bamaluz beach you will soon get to Smeaton's Pier and the water's edge of the harbour beach. This then leads you to the heart of St Ives along the Wharf front to the cobbled continuation of Fore Street.

'Zennor' is just 150 metres from Porthmeor beach which, via steps very close to to the apartment, you walk down directly to the beach passing the Tate Gallery on your right. Please note, to walk back to the apartment from the beach or centre of the town, you are required to walk uphill. 

To enter the apartment, you just have a couple of steps to walk up and you will reach the front door. For those who benefit from having no interior stairs to climb, Zennor is the perfect space for you as the property spaciously pans across one floor. Zennor truly reflects its oceanside surroundings outside; as you enter you walk into the open plan living room and be sure to take a look out the window to catch a glimpse of the sea that is just a few minutes' walk from your front door!   

The living room boasts a large and comfortable corner sofa as well as another sofa so there is ample room for four guests to lounge around whilst planning the days' adventures, or curling up to watch an evening film. There is a Smart TV in the living room so you won't miss out on any of your Netflix favourites! The living room has two patio doors that let in a great amount of natural light and, another plus, they open up on to your very own private balcony area. It is a much-loved spot to sit and enjoy breakfast or evening drinks. The open plan living area has a dining table that can seat up to four guests and a fully equipped kitchen. The kitchen has an integrated AEG fridge and freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher and electric oven with five gas hobs. If you are a coffee lover then you really will love the Nespresso coffee machine! Zennor is provided with chef standard knives and cooking equipment so if you don't fancy eating out all of the time, and one of you loves to cook while the other watches, we have it all to hand for you to cook up a Cornish feast! 
Off the living area/ hallway, you have two bedrooms and a Jack and Jill bathroom. One of the bedrooms is a twin and has an en-suite shower, wash basin and toilet and the other is a king size bedroom. The Jack and Jill element is a door leading from the king size bedroom creating an en-suite and then a door enters the bathroom from the hallway too. This bathroom has a bath with shower over, wash basin and toilet.  You are provided with luxuriously soft bed linen and towels. A hairdryer is also provided for you. For the young ones, there is a high chair and also there is a cupboard just to the side of the apartment where you can help yourself to beach goodies during your holiday. 
The apartment itself is enough to love, however, the location is a true bonus! 'Zennor' is just 150 metres from Porthmeor beach which, via steps very close to the apartment, you walk down directly to the beach passing the Tate Gallery on your right. Porthmeor Beach is Blue Flag awarded, has toilets, takeaways, beautiful beachside restaurants and it is home to the St Ives Surf School. This makes it an ideal location for families, couples and all those coming for a proper St Ives experience! 
Your closest restaurant to Zennor is either the Porthmeor Beach Café, a hub of excellent food, drinks and views or why not pay a visit to the TATE Café? Head to the gallery and take the lift all the way to the very top floor and you'll find some pretty breath-taking landscapes of St Ives. It is a great place for a cream tea or a light afternoon lunch.   
Zennor has super convenient parking with a private permit parking space just 200m from theapartment front door, located in the Balnoon Car Park. You can pull up a little closer to unload/ load first to save your arms!

Zennor apartment is situated in location location.Easily accessible to all the beaches,restaurants and shops in St Ives.There is a parking space in the car park next to the apartment .The decoration in the apartment is top class and the owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and homely.The communication from Orange roofs was excellent and we were able to get in earlier than the official arrival time which was a bonus.The only problem we had was that we required a linen change as we stayed for 2 weeks and this wasn't mentioned in the apartments book or on Orange roofs app.We should have enquired as the service is available.Orange Roofs are easily contacted and the lady I spoke to was very helpful .We will definitely book through them again and also stay at the apartment again.Excellent all round.

We stayed at Zennor for a week after Christmas and in to 2022. It was perfect for our needs and we got to see in the New Year in St Ives, which we loved. This was the 4th stay in an Orange Roofs property over the years and they have all been of the highest quality with everything you could possibly need. Add in Sam and the team in the office and you have all the ingredients for a restful staycation.

We have a very enjoyable stay at your apartment , everything was quality and very clean and comfortable.There was however a couple of things from my opinion that I would have liked to know before hand .The apartment was at the top of St Ives and for two people in there later years it was a struggle with the hills.Also the dishwasher wasn't working and someone previous had burnt the iron black so we couldn't use that either .Having said, all of that these things can be rectified apart from the hills Overall we had a good holiday thankyou.

Lovely apartment, very clean, lots of extras supplied. Great to have parking space 2 minute walk away. 5 minute walk to shops and beach. Orange roof were very good at supplying details before the holiday, make sure you follow their instructions to get to apartment and not the sat nav. Not the best view in the world from the balcony, but in fairness lots of properties don't have outside space, we didn't use it as cold and rainy most of week. But not a deal breaker. Would recommend to anyone who wanted to visit St. Ives.

Zennor 3 property was extremely clean and modern and well spec'd with top quality appliance and items. A welcome pack was also provided on arrival which was a lovely touch and the host has thought of nearly everything that you would need during the stay. Importantly a parking permit was provided which enabled easy parking in the nearby car park which made things a lot easier.....car parking in St Ives is a nightmare. The location of the property is very convenient and is only a 5 to 10min walk to the main street .....the Tate gallery is literally next door. However beware, some of the hills are very steep in St Ives, so it helps a lot if you are fit and able!! We thoroughly enjoyed our week in the Zennor apartment and would like to thank the hosts for making us feel at home in their lovely apartment.

Lovely property, clean as a new pin with all your needs catered for. Very comfortable, modern and ideally situated in St Ives, with nearby parking. I cannot think of anything to criticise except that it is at the top of a rather steep hill, this was in no way a problem for us but might be for the elderly, or people with mobility issues. Orange Roofs were extremely professional and pleasant to deal with. I would recommend this property and we plan to return!

We found Zennor is a really well-located and comfortable property for our week's stay in St.Ives. It sits in the Barnoon area just above the Tate St.Ives, so is really convenient to drop down to Porthmeor Beach, or into the town itself. A massive plus is the proximity of a reserved car parking space in Barnoon long stay car park itself. The design of the house is really clever, with a spacious living area and kitchen, plus two good sized bedrooms and two bathrooms all fitted into what seems (from the outside) a relatively small property. A small outside terrace with seats is really useful, not least for hanging out wetsuits. The standard of furnishings and fittings in the house is very good, and we didn't miss any key items in the kitchen so it's perfect for travelling light but then self-catering. We originally booked for 2020, and I must comment on how helpful and considerate the booking team were in rearranging our stay for 2021 in the light of Covid. All in all, thoroughly recommended - we had a great week, and we have booked again!

This apartment has a great location above Porthmeor beach and was very cosy. The kitchen has all the amenities we needed and the apartment was great for a family of 4. My only little niggle was that there was quite a lot of unnecessary stuff in the apartment such as a draw full of Xmas baubles, a cupboard full of plastic toddler plates a drawer full of DVDs etc. We take a lot of our stuff away for a 2 week holiday so personally we would have preferred more empty cupboards. Other than that it was a great place and would stay again.

Quality apartment, stocked with quality furnishings and equipment. Located in an excellent position for exploring St Ives, Lots of nice touches everything provided with lots of thought. All this made it a very enjoyable holiday.

We had a pleasant stay at Porthmeor Apt from 12-19/6/21. The apartment was clean, fully furnished and comfortable. It is located within 5 minutes walk to Porthmeor beach and shops. The booking process was simple and all communications from owners were clear and received timely before our arrival date. I would recommend this to friends and will stay here on our next visit.

Zennor is a really lovely property. We've been visiting St Ives for years and have stayed in many many holiday rentals, Zennor is up there with the best. The quality and the space is fantastic (more spacious than it looks on the photos). Zennor is immaculately clean and really well equipped with everything you could need. Another plus is the outside terrace, drenched is afternoon/evening sun it's the perfect place to relax with a drink or/and dry wet suits! Usually staying in downalong area I was a bit nervous about location, actually it's no problem. Everything you need is still only a few minutes walk. Finally, Orange roofs = Amazing!

A truly great property to stay in. So homely with very tasteful furnishings. Exceptional clean, great location and a very enjoyable welcome pack.

Immaculate, modern, fresh and extremely comfortable. Little touches like the welcome Cornish package was perfectly delicious on arrival. My family enjoyed May Bank holiday here and we could've lazed around if it weren't for the warm spring sunshine beckoning us outside to explore. This beautiful apartment's location is a hop, skip and a jump to the golden sandy beaches, picturesque harbour, shops, restaurants and bars as you stroll through the quaint cobbled streets lined with cottages. Also the perfect location when we ventured beyond the island to explore nearby landmarks Botallack Mine, Land's End, Minack Theatre and St Michael's Mt. Excellent communication from booking to arrival - don't hesitate to book! Highly recommend!!

We just got back from a week at Zennor and couldn't have asked for a better apartment to suit our needs. It was spotless, super comfy beds, very well equipped kitchen and perfect size for a family of four. It's a 4/5 min walk to our (now) favourite beach Porthmeor and the same into town, hugely recommend it and we are hoping to be back as soon as it's available again ;) Orange Roofs were hugely helpful and the APP with all the info on it is brilliant, easy to refer to and follow.


Nov 11 2020

The whole idea of booking this apartment was very last minute following a stressful week of sorting out my mother's broken down car. It was absolutely what we needed to wind down, apart from the hiccup with the parking space which was quickly sorted anyway, we had a cosy week near Porthmeor which is so close you can hear the sea at night! It was efficient use of space , well equipped, the beds were very comfortable and the bathroom facilities were great too. We really didn't want to leave . The care and communication from orange roofs and St Ives Housekeeping was also really excellent. I've marked this one down as one to remember for anyone visiting me in the future.

Having visited St Ives several times, this visit was our first as a 3! Being able to pull up at the foot door of Zennor to unload was ideal, especially with the amount of luggage we had for our 3 month old. A great stress free start to our holiday. Couldn't fault the apartment, it was like home from home. Well equipped and all high quality appliances and linen. Location was ideal too even with a pushchair. This was our second booking with Orangeroofs and won't hesitate to use them again in the future.


Oct 05 2020

Zennor was the perfect place to stay for our St Ives holiday. Excellent location, luxuriously equipped and very comfortable. We've now stayed twice and would happily return again. There's no better recommendation than that!

Lovely apartment, beautifully equipped. We were very comfortable and the service from Orange Roofs was comprehensive, friendly and efficient. We were visiting family in St Ives and will be back!

I just wanted to say a big thank you to you all. We had the most relaxing week in St Ives at Zennor. Everything was just perfect; the location of the apartment couldn't have been any better and having a dedicated parking spot was a godsend. We didn't know what to expect being the first week back since full lockdown but I can quite honestly say we were so thankful we had Zennor booked.

The little touches in the apartment truly made it - white company linen, towels and toiletries were luxurious and we appreciated a pint of milk, the washing/dishwasher tablets even to the beautiful flowers! 

So please pass on our thanks to the owners and well  done to Orange Roofs and JellyBean too. The total experience and service stood out!

Our first booking with Orange Roofs First class apartment Parking was close Zennor had everything thing we needed Comfy beds, boiling water... first class towels and toiletries Like a hotel !

'Zennor' is a beautiful apartment in the lovely town of St. Ives in a very convenient position for the town, harbour and shops in one direction, and the Tate, Porthmeor Beach, and the excellent Porthmeor Beach restaurant in the other. None of the attractions are more than a few minutes walk away (although maybe a bit longer up the hill on the way back!). The 2-bedroom apartment is very comfortable and extremely well equipped with nice bedrooms, bathrooms, appliances and decoration. It also contains lots of information about the area including maps and walk suggestions. The agents, Orange Roofs, were very helpful with information prior to our visit, and also handled very promptly a minor maintenance issue while we were there. The apartment is on a quiet lane (ideal for unloading on arrival/departure as it is very quiet), and the availability of included parking in the nearby car park is a boon for a place like St. Ives where a car is seldom needed. The only minor comment is that the apartment looks out over the car park (with a view to the right of the Tate and the sea), and is therefore somewhat overlooked by this.

From the moment we booked our stay the communication was excellent. They couldn’t have been more helpful. Fantastic property fitted out to a high standard. We felt at home and really enjoyed our break. We will definitely use Orange Roofs for our next stay in Cornwall.


Sep 24 2019

We spent a fantastic week at Zennor. It is a beautifully decorated and generously kitted out apartment in a fabulous location for Porthmeor Beach. Orange Roofs we’re one of the most attentive booking agents we’ve used. We had lots of useful information in advance of our arrival (including an invaluable top 5 places to eat - we tried nearly all of them!) and the service felt very personal. When we had a minor issue Orange Roofs were extremely responsive to get it fixed. I’d definitely recommend Orange Roofs and Zennor to St Ives visitors.


Aug 27 2019

Zennor is a fantastic apartment, the best equipped place we have stayed. Such comfy beds, fluffy towels and thought given to everything a guest might need. Would definitely rebook - the whole family loved the closeness to porthmeor beach and the town but also the peace and quiet achieved by just a five min walk uphill away from the hustle and bustle. Perfect location. Orange roofs were helpful, polite, professional and a pleasure to deal with making the holiday process very easy. We mentioned one small door handle issue and they were round to fix it straight away.


Aug 20 2019

We had a great week in St. Ives and we loved the perfect apartment Zennor 3 - it's perfectly located and super well equipped !

This was the 5th time staying in St Ives and the second time booking with Orange Roof. They are very knowledgeable about the apartments and very easy to deal with. Informative and very efficient. We were staying for 3 weeks to celebrate my husband’s 80th birthday, and since we were staying so long we wanted to make sure that it had comfortable seating and beds. We were very pleased to have a one level apartment and we were very pleased with the comfort and amenities in Zennor. It was nice to have parking close to the apartment as parking is much harder than when we first started coming to St Ives in the early 90’s. Our only comment is that the hills going into town were harder to manage than we had expected. Hard to tell from the pictures or description. Otherwise, a fabulous and relaxing vacation.


Jul 01 2019

Zennor is the perfect apartment . Ideally situated and everything you could wish for ,even the sun on the balcony in an evening. Would definitely stay here again and recommend orange roofs without hesitation .


May 12 2019

While the apartment was difficult to locate, once we found it and settled in, we were delighted. The description on the website was accurate. Plenty of light and amenities in the unit. Even occasional cooking was fun with the well-equipped kitchen. The location of the unit was at one of the tallest points in St. Ives. We are hearty folk, but folks with mobility issues may find the steep roads a challenge. Thank you for a great week.

This is a great apartment. Close to everything, several beach bars close by, Porthmeor and Porthgwidden both nice for lunch or dinner. Coastpath starting 5-10 minutes from the apartment. And for art lovers: it is right next to the Tate. The apartment is very well equipped, comfortable and cosy. I loved the double doors and terrace with sun during the afternoon until sundown. The Barbara Hepworth museum and sculpture garden is magical. Thank you!

We booked very last minute but the process was smooth and access was really easy and well explained by email in advance. The apartment is beautiful in a superb location. The apartment was spotless and beautifully presented and prepared with everything you could possibly need for your self catering holiday in beautiful st ives. The beds are super comfortable and we slept really well. We felt it was fantastic value for our mini family break and loved the little extras provided like milk tea coffee biscuits. We will definitely return thank you

Oct 2018 We’ve just returned from our stay at Zennor in St Ives and couldn’t be more happy. Firstly the communication regarding our booking was excellent including clear instructions and helpful tips. The apartment itself was clean, spacious and not only well equipped but equipped to a high standard. With beach towels, beach bags, deckchairs and wind breaks all provided it meant much less packing. Everywhere is hilly in St Ives and the walk from the shops and beach kept us all fit but we were happy with the location. The beach was literally 5mins away and the shops were only a little further. We would recommend this apartment to friends without hesitation and are already considering re-booking for next year.

We’ve just returned from a fabulous three night stay in Zennor. Arrival was extremely smooth and having the parking space is an excellent bonus! We were stunned at the beautiful decor of the apartment and were able to enjoy a glass of wine on the balcony listening to the sea. Communications with Orange Roofs were seamless and they were very friendly and accommodating, ensuring there was a highchair and travel cot set up for our arrival. We shall definitely recommend Zennor, and Orange Roofs to friends and hope to return very soon!

With lovely views over Porthmeor and a little terrace with table and chairs from which to enjoy them, we knew we’d found a great reasonably priced apartment as soon as we arrived. Very modern and stylish with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms meant plenty of space for us and our 18 month old. Lovely touches like White Company hand wash and soft fluffy towels gave a relaxing sense of luxury. Only 5 minute walk to the harbour too. A wonderful week!

We've just returned from a lovely week staying at Zennor in St Ives with my husband, 16 month old son and Mother in law. We found the apartment really comfortable and stylish - love the commitment to the seaside theme even onto the mugs! The apartment was very well equipped and we had everything we needed as well as being spotlessly clean and snug. The location was super - 3 minutes to the wonderful bakery for breakfast pastries (although a bit longer coming back...!) The Tate construction work does start early (7.30am) but with a toddler this wasn't an issue for us. The main thing we missed were the sea glimpses vs the construction boards as we ate in every night. Nonetheless we had a super week and I would highly recommend Zennor apartment.

Another wonderful week at Zennor. The apartment is just as good as we remembered from last year. Everything is good quality, and the owners have excellent taste. The apartment is also very clean, something you can't always take for granted. I was aware of the building work, as I stayed here last year . If you like to have a long lie in, you may be disappointed, as the workers start arriving at 7am. This didn't worry me as I get up at 5am in my real life! Next year we are looking forward to a building free holiday. However, there are so many other super aspects to this apartment (comfy beds, quality linen, fluffy towels, plenty of crockery/cutlery-I could go on for ever!) , that this minor irritation can be overlooked.

We have just had a week in the Zennor and although the weather wasn't great, overall we enjoyed our first time on holiday in Cornwall. Our stay commenced well with excellent directons and a very comprehensive welcome pack. The apartment is exceptionlly well equipped, wonderful kitchen facilities and well thought out in terms of layout. There was nothing that had not been thought about and so we were very impressed with the whole apartment The location is also very good and having a parking space just a few minutes away is a real advantage. We only had two days when we could sit on the beach however, the array of beach accessories is tremendous. The are only two negatives to comment about. Firstly: the building works which was noisy and disruptive as we do enjoy a long lie in. There also seemed to be a constant presence of workmen outside our windows from 0730 each day. The balcony is easy to use and it was great to be able to have the doors open in the evening. However, the partial sea view is perhaps not quite as good as it seemed in the photographs on the website. Overall we had a lovely time at Zennor and in St Ives, some glorious places to eat and fantastic cliff top and beach walks to enjoy.

We've stayed at Zennor twice in the last 18 months and loved it both times. It's in a central location and only a five minute walk into town. The apartment is very well equipped and comfortable and has everything you need for a good week away including powerful showers and comfortable beds. The building work at the Tate didn't bother us at all. We knew it was happening before we booked and the price reflected it. We're currently considering booking again for next year.
