The meaning of Treloweth in Cornish is ‘the place of gardens’. Windsor Terrace, with its impressive houses in a quiet, yet central position within St Ives, definitely has gardens to the front of the houses as well as sea views and parking which is all within a comfortable walking distance to the heart of the town and beaches of St Ives. Treloweth is a generously sized and welcoming St Ives coastal home which welcomes families of up to 8 into its embrace to enjoy everything that this bustling coastal harbour town has to offer. Book a holiday at this luxury home and you will also benefit from two parking spaces directly outside. There is a garden area to spill out into (please note it is not directly attached the house, you need to pass your parked cars to access) plus a bistro table and chairs directly in front of the house where you can drink in the sea views and enjoy the sun for pretty much most of the day!
Treloweth has some beautiful period features throughout and the owners have injected bespoke carpentry which makes the home distinctly one of a kind. It has four bedrooms, two of which are ensuite and a large family bathroom. On the ground floor, the space is shared by a large kitchen and, as the old adage goes, it certainly is the heart of the home. It's spacious, light and inviting and we can imagine many happy families or couples enjoying this space and sharing many a happy moment here whatever time of day. It is equipped with an induction hob, oven, dishwasher, coffee filter machine and so much storage space that will satisfy any gannets in your family; fear not, there is ample larder room! There is a utility area with washing machine and tumble drier which also houses the essential hoover and mop and bucket too. Double doors lead from the kitchen through to the living area which has a huge, super comfy sofa facing a wood burner and TV with basic SKY TV package as well as an additional sofa in a chill out zone where you can relax, knees tucked up, with a good book listening to your favourite tunes via the Marshall Acton Bluetooth speaker. A large bay window with high ceilings looks out across the roof tops to the sea and Godrevy lighthouse, so you may choose to simply lose yourselves to the view and daydream away.
There is a cleverly hidden downstairs cloakroom that is just off the kitchen and, if you follow the traditional tesselle tiled hallway, you get to a staircase that takes you upstairs to the first three bedrooms and the family bathroom. The front master bedroom has beautiful sea views, high ceilings and a space saving design to an ensuite wetroom and wardrobe area. The king size bed is bespoke and hand crafted and the bedroom delivers space, light and real sense of calm. The next bedroom is another king size bedroom again with bespoke carpentry for shelving and hanging space. Along the hallway is the family bathroom that has twin shower heads, wash basin, bath and WC. The next bedroom on the first floor is a twin bedroom, it too has some wonderful bespoke carpentry that creates a mezzanine almost like a bow of a ship. Due to safety restrictions, the mezzanine is not for guest use. Hand-built wooden wardrobes, ensuites, hanging rails and wall murals all add so much inimitability and individuality to Treloweth that you will be wanting to know who the talented carpenter is!
The top floor has a Vispring double bed and an ensuite wetroom which has been expertly crafted into the loft eaves. A cabrio velux offers birds-eye sea views above the St Ives orange roofs and we imagine family members squabbling who gets to sleep in this bedroom as it offers a sanctuary away from it all whether you want to curl up and read or put the TV on for your own personal viewing choice.
Treloweth is just a 5 minutes' walk from either the heart of St Ives along the shop-lined Fore Street or water's edge of the harbour. You are also just 5 minutes from the infamous surfing beach of Porthmeor (be warned, you need to walk up a steep hill first!) and 10 minutes from Porthminster beach where you can hire kayaks or try your hand at Stand-Up paddleboarding. You can explore all 5 of St Ives' beaches on foot easily, as well as visit The Tate Gallery, Barbara Hepworth museum, the RNLI Lifeboat House and Porthmeor School of Art too. In fact, even though you have two parking spaces, you really have so much on your doorstep within walking distance, you may not even explore further afield. There are many restaurants in St Ives ranging from vegan to seafood heaven. You have a choice of takeaways from pasties to paella and during the summer months visit West beach on Porthmeor for one of their delicious pizzas and watch the sun set from the West.
Considering you have two parking spaces, we recommend exploring the rest of Cornwall. You have North Cornwall that boasts fabulous surf at Hayle and Gwithian Towans, South Cornwall known for the restful Helford estuary and the boating fraternity and tropical gardens such as Glendurgan or Trebah. Perhaps go further West and enjoy the dramatic back drop of Land's End and the gorgeous white sands of Sennen Cove. Visit the Minack theatre to watch some outdoor theatrics and you may spot a dolphin in the bay too! You cannot beat the crystal clear water of Porthcurno beach or, if you drive to the other extreme end of Cornwall to the Lizard, you simply have to visit Kynance Cove with its breath taking beauty.
The area to park in its entirety is 4.9m wide x 5.4m deep
There is a covered space accessed via the garden that the owners of Treloweth are happy for you to use to store surfboards, bikes, kayaks etc but you do so at your own risk.
All bed linen and towels are provided. Beach towels not included. One small to medium dog is welcome at Treloweth. If you need a travel cot or high chair, these are not provided so please contact Star Linen hire in St Ives who can provide these for the duration of your stay and deliver directly to the property.

Our 5th visit to St Ives and possibly the best house we've rented yet. Good for groups -,plenty of living space, bathrooms and 2 car spaces. Well located close to the town centre but sufficiently elevated to provide a quiet location and views over the town and bay. We would definitely stay at Treloweth again.

Treloweth sits on a steep hill but the views from this property are magical. The house is beautiful, perfectly laid out and full of all the holiday essentials you need. It is bright and clean with spacious rooms and ingenious ideas. We loved this house. It is only a 10 minute walk to the harbour and 10 minute walk to the beach. Not for the faint hearted tho as these are very steep hills, by the end of the week we knew we had done them. St Ives is wonderful, our advice is to prebook restaurants as these get filled quickly. We unfortunately had our bookings cancelled due to lack of staff. We didn't want to leave so would highly recommend this property.

A wonderful house, beautifully converted and very well equipped. Everything you need is there. The heating makes is very cosy and the log burner a wonderful way to spend the evening. The parking is a little tight for bigger vehicles! Orange roofs are very pleasant to deal with!

Excellent house, big enough for 2 families, well equipped with good quality items. Well thought out, great use of space. Very comfortable furnishings. Highly recommend. 5-10 mins walk to the harbour and beach one way and 8 mins walk from back of the house to Porthmeor beach. Location can't be faulted. Located on a very steep hill so not suitable for those with mobility issues. Parking provided, bit hairy getting into the terrace to park due to gradient of road but once done the first time it's ok! Nice welcome pack on arrival and good response from the management company to an issue raised.

A holiday home with lots of character and plenty of space for the family. We found the close proximity (few minutes walk) to Porthmeor beach as well as the cafes, restaurants and shops of St Ives an absolute bonus. The children greatly enjoyed the top floor room which they turned into their own chill out room for TV, drawing and reading. The lounge area is very comfortable with plenty of sofa space, the main bathroom is a great size with two showers and an area to hang wetsuits. The master bedroom is beautifully finished and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed including plenty of space for the kids to play games while we cooked. We loved the bench in the front garden where you could start and finish the day looking out across the Panoramic roof tops of St Ives out to sea. A lovely holiday in a great space.
