About Zennor

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 5pm and check out is 9am. '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.

'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. 

The apartment is all on one level (with only a couple of steps up to the front door) so perfect for those who don't want to face too many steps once inside your holiday home. With an open plan living room (with the sea glimpses!), super equipped kitchen and dining area with seating for 6, you will feel instantly at ease and comfortable in the living space. 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.

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 our Nespresso coffee machine! We provide 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 your masterchef challenge!

Each room has a TV/DVD so if you each prefer to watch something different, we've made that easy for you too. The living area TV is a Smart one, so with the complimentary WiFi we offer, you are free to browse and choose to watch Netflex, BBC iPlayer, 4OD as well as check your mail or share your experiences on Facebook. For music lovers, we have a DAB Radio and iPod docking station as well as books and games to enjoy whilst listening to your favourite tunes.

You are provided with super soft bed linen and towels and ladies, you don't have to bring your hairdryer as we have that covered too. For the young ones, we can get you a travel cot on request, 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. 

A private permit parking space is just 200m from the apartment front door. You can pull up to unload/ load first to save your arms!

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.

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!

'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.

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.

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.

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.

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 .

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.
