Please note: minimum stay for this property is: 3 nights low season & 7 nights high season
In the heart of the arty, stylish coastal town of St Ives in Cornwall, Ponckle’s Place is a self-catering property just thirty seconds walk from the harbour. With gleaming whitewashed walls, exposed rafters overhead, and a light-filled aesthetic, Ponckle’s Place is the dream getaway for up to four guests looking to spend some quality downtime together in one of Cornwall’s most celebrated areas.
The property is arranged around a central living space, with hardwood floors, ample soft furniture, and an engineered wood-burning stove. A Juliet balcony opens off this space, with views to the glittering Cornish sea, a real treat whatever the season. In the same space you’ll find the contemporary kitchen, where no expense has been spared in fitting the appliances and features that you need to prepare delicious meals. As well as a four-ring gas burner and oven, there’s a coffee machine, washer/dryer and dishwasher, to ensure that you spend less time at the sink and more time at the nearby beaches and art galleries.
There is a master bedroom with its own private en-suite, and a second bedroom set up with twin single beds. As there is also a second family-style bathroom. Ponckle’s Place is a perfect property for pairs of couples, or other holidaymaking groups looking for a little extra space, requiring two bathrooms.
Ponckle’s Place is one of those holiday getaways which stays with you long after you’ve departed. Everything about the property is pleasing. From the high ceilings to the original artwork on the walls, the features and touches which characterise the property are a treat to behold. As are the marvellous sea views available from some of the rooms.
St Ives is a well-kept secret among locals and holidaymakers alike. With acres of sandy beaches, a thriving community of artists and writers, and an unbeatable food scene which benefits from proximity to excellent fresh fish and seafood, St Ives is the perfect place to seek refuge from the stress and bustle of everyday urban life.
The Tate Gallery is internationally celebrated for its permanent collection and exhibitions, and Barbara Hepworth’s house and gardens are well worth a visit. That said, St Ives is packed with hidden gems, galleries and studios, tucked away down cobbled lanes and off the beaten track. As far as food and drink are concerned, the Porthminster Beach Café offers brilliant crab sandwiches, while the Silco Searooms are a must for post-beach cocktails. Head to Mount Zion for truly great coffee.
Prices vary throughout the year. Short breaks available outside of most school holidays.
