Pelennor is a 2-bedroom apartment, ideally located 5 minutes’ walk from beautiful Porthminster Beach and St Ives town with its delightful mix of shops, galleries, pubs, cafes and restaurants. Why not wake up to lovely views from the Juliet balcony across the rooftops to the Island and St Nicholas Chapel and the ocean beyond…then breakfast in the bright open plan bay window looking towards Carbis Bay. We have re-furbished Pelennor to a very high standard, preserving the original corniced ceiling in the lounge/kitchen and added solid oak wood flooring. The two bathrooms comprise a contemporary ensuite and family bathroom with spacious corner shower and the added luxury of a free-standing bath. The bedrooms both have charming cream Victorian-style bedsteads and adjustable wall-mounted TVs. We're less than 10 minutes’ walk from bus and train stations; access by car could not be easier with space for two cars right outside. Ideal for two couples, a family of four, or a romantic break for 2. The property is not only within easy access of the beach and town but there is also the local tennis and golf clubs. St Ives Harbour Hotel offers full spa and leisure facilities. Contact stives-harbour-hotel.co.uk/spa

About Mark Shelley
Hello, my name is Paula and my husband Mark and I started visiting St Ives in November 2008 and have returned every year since. St Ives and the Cornish coast have become very special to us and we decided to try and buy a little piece of it in Autumn 2012. We were delighted to take possession of Pelennor in February 2013 and spent the next six months carefully preparing it for our first guests.
Mark Shelley purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Mark Shelley chose Saint Ives
Pelennor is part of Porthminster Terrace, which has so many advantages, not least its proximity to one of the most beautiful beaches in England. We love the character of the apartment with its high ceilings and fabulous views to the front and back and the fact that you can enjoy all the convenience of being in St Ives at the same time as being able to escape from the hustle and bustle when you want to.
What makes this Apartment unique
One of the most obvious benefits is the view in both directions; towards the 'island' with the ancient St Nicholas Chapel perched on the hill top in one direction, and Carbis Bay and the distant horizon in the other. Our apartment is equipped and furnished to a very high standard, being brand-new in August 2013. Finally, to find a property in St Ives town with one parking space would have been a challenge - we have two!

Great apartment in a great location
The apartment was a home from home. Smart TVs, WiFi, full kitchen, sea view, great showers and a superb bathtub.
Being able to walk down into St Ives was great. It only took a few minutes (although the walk back was longer due to the steep hills 😁 ). There is a beach less than 5 mins walk away.
A great place to stay. Central enough to be close, yet the roads in and out are decent sized so no fighting oncoming buses
Would definitely recommend. Plus the owners supplied some delicious biscuitsp
Glad the biscuits were enjoyed!

Perfect place to stay.
Close to everything. Modern apartment. Clean. Would stay there again.
And we would welcome our guest to stay again any time!
Home from home
What a lovely apartment. Beautifully decorated and equipped and so close to everything, it's a dream! Online pictures don't do it full justice. Have already rebooked and only reluctant to recommend in case it's already booked when we want to go again!
Thanks for the lovely feedback and we're looking forward to welcoming you again soon.
Property clean, beds comfy, flat warm, no need to share bathroom. Wonderful.
We arrived on Wednesday and left Saturday and took our car out just once during that time. The Flat is so convenient. If you need a break from St Ives then just jump on the train. It cost us £2 each to go to Lelant and walk back along the Coastal Path. We ate at the Lifeboat Inn next to the Lifeboat station all 3 nights (yep boring I know) but we so loved it the first night what's the point of changing. Yes it gets dark early in November, but after a day walking we'd come home for a change of clothes and then walk down for our supper before strolling round the harbour or up to the Illuminated Chapel. There was nothing we needed in the property that wasn't there for us and enjoyed the Mastermind game - one that we'd played quite a lot in days gone by. I'm an early riser and loved to make a cuppa, open the shutters and watch the dawn break over the sea. I will miss that the most I think. Thank you for a lovely stay.
Lots of useful information here for future guests, we appreciate the feedback!
The apartment is lovely. Great size, spotless and looked good.
Would definitely stay again,
