About Penhallow

In light of the COVID-19 virus, we want to reassure you that this St Ives self-catering property is disinfected (hard surfaces and soft furnishings) after each guest stay. Please note that until we can resume normal service, check in time is 5.30pm and check out is 9am. Fancy being a few feet from a beach, the shops, places to eat and drink? But you also prefer to have a sense of peace and privacy? Then Penhallow is just the ticket. Beautifully renovated to offer luxury self-catering accommodation in St Ives just 20 metres from the harbour beach. Penhallow has three bedrooms; a twin and two king size bedrooms. The ground floor king size bedroom has an ensuite and there is a family bathroom on the first floor with the other two bedrooms. The living room, kitchen and dining area are open plan with a very high standard of finish. A large sofa and comfy armchair all invite you to want to flop and relax. Even more so in the winter when the wood burner can be lit and snuggled up to. The kitchen is hand made and of a very high standard with a dining area to seat 6 guests.

Tucked back off the cobbled area of Mount Zion and accessed via a passageway, Penhallow is within a few sandy grains of St Ives harbour beach, the Wharf front and the shop lined cobbled Fore Street, this traditional 3 storey cottage couldn't be better placed for your main summer holiday, a New Year's celebration or a more peaceful break in Autumn or Winter. You are literally a moment away from anywhere here but if you want to just sit and reflect before heading out for the day or an evening meal, Penhallow has its own private outdoor area with slate seating area and bistro table with two chairs.

Penhallow has that great mix of giving a feel of a traditional cottage in old St Ives while offering you and your loved ones a warm and well-equipped 21st Century home.

With beaches, restaurants, pubs, shops and galleries a stone's throw away, and the train station easily reached on foot, why not leave the car at home and fully immerse yourself into the St Ives culture. If you fancied exploring out, the open top bus can take you the scenic way to most places in West Penwith.

We stayed at Penhallow for the 2nd week of our Cornwall holiday. The house has a fantastic location, literally a stone's throw from the harbour. Comfort-wise, the house is perfect. We knew that there was going to be some renovation done before we arrived but we didn't realise they would be doing the entire house so it was a lovely surprise! It's a 3 story house that has been renovated and refurnished from top to bottom. New kitchen, new bathroom, new carpets, new furniture and newly decorated. The standard is very high and the furnishings, fixtures and fittings are lovely. The owner has clearly put a lot of effort in and obviously has a keen eye for detail. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need, all brand new of course! There are 3 TVs, excellent wi-fi and if Alexa is your thing, then there's two of those as well. All in we had a great time and very much enjoyed staying at Penhallow.

We loved this cottage. We had 4 teenage girls with my husband and I. There was plenty of room. The bedroom on the lower floor has its own on suite which was like a second master. The two other bedrooms on the top floor were lovely as well. The mattresses were very comfortable. The kitchen had plenty of room with seating for 6. It was also fully stocked with kitchenware and glasses. What we loved most about the cottage was the location. We were 50 yards from the beach yet not on the beaten path. We had our own patio to enjoy as well. We will definitely be back!

A clean and cosy well appointed home in a wonderful position close to the harbour in St Ives. We did think that the small garden was attached to the house and although not a problem for us if we had have had a dog it may have been. If we came to St Ives again we would definitely book this house again.

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday in St Ives .Orange Roofs are so well organised and their communication is excellent. The accommodation sleeps 6 comfortably and the basement was just right for my daughter and husband as they had their own front door and toilet .The kitchen was well equipped and was the hub for family meals . We were 2 minutes away from all St Ives had to offer. The beds were very comfy and the bathroom gorgeous. We hope to.go back to St Ives next year and would not hesitate to use Orange Roofs again .

Penhallow is a wonderfully modernized three bed-roomed house right by the harbour in St Ives. The house had everything we needed - a fully equipped modern kitchen - very comfortable lounge with wood burner and smart TV. Perfectly adequate Internet access. It has a nice spacious modern bathroom with bath and separate shower. The 3 bedrooms are of good size - two of them having flat screen TVs. The basement bedroom has its own toilet and would be a great room for a couple of teenagers. This was our first visit to St Ives and it took my wife and I about 15 minutes to fall in love with it. There are so many wonderful sandy beaches within walking distance and the coastal walks on our doorstep were stunning in both directions. When we did take the car out, The Lizard, Lands End, St Michael's Mount and Mousehole were all within a short drive. The town itself is charming with quaint little streets housing lots of lovely shops and restaurants (to meet all budgets). If dog friendly restaurants are needed then I recommend The Loft, Scoff Troff Cafe and Hub. If the weather could be guaranteed I think we would holiday here every year. Have been back two days and we all miss St Ives and cannot wait to go back there.

We arrived on a cold, windy, wet afternoon and the heating was on, therefore we warmed up nicely. The gift pack was also most welcome. Good coffee, a decent bottle of red and some ridiculously lush scones with cream and jam. The accommodation suited us ideally being laid out as it is. The basement bedroom is private enough for an older/younger member of the family who wanted a little privacy. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed and was a very sociable space as we did have several visitors over the weekend. Would highly recommend

Fantastic holiday in St Ives, lovely cottage very close to all amenities and Orange Roofs as a company were fantastic. If you fancy a break in St Ives which is amazing I can not think of a better place to stay.

We enjoyed a fabulous week at Penhallow. The cottage is superbly located within the heart of St Ives and within a few minutes walk of all of the beaches and amenities that the town has to offer. The cottage itself retains all of the charm of a fishermans cottage with steep stairs and an abundance of character, but has been sympathetically modernised and generously equipped to a very high specification. The cottage looks enticing in the photographs but genuinely must be seen in the flesh to be truly appreciated - it’s bigger than you would imagine and an extremely comfortable place to stay. I truly can’t imagine a more convenient and better place in which to base your break.

We come and spent the week at Pen-hallow for our honeymoon and had the most wonderful week the cottage is beyond beautiful it is so homely and comfortable. We were welcomed with a lovely little welcome pack "lovely little surprise after our trip down" the cottage is in a perfect location to everything you could need and want. It was clean and perfectly presented. We will definitely be returning in the near future for another family holiday. Beautiful cottage in a beautiful place. Couldn't ask for anything better.

It's a lovely, clean, comfortable place to stay. It's close enough to the beaches, shops and harbour to be super-convenient, yet nicely tucked away in a little private corner of Downalong so it's still feels peaceful and relaxing. And the welcome pack with the coffee, wine, tea, milk and biscuits was such a personal and welcoming touch. We're very glad we discovered Orange Roofs!

A fab location, was exactly as the pictures show you. A lovely touch was the welcome gift of scones, cream, jam and wine. Orange Roofs communication was excellent and Sam called straight back to help sort a minor issue. Very quiet location despite being so close to the harbour front. restaurants and pubs minutes away, as are the beaches and galleries. A lovely stay in a great cottage, thank you.
