1 Ropewalk is situated a few metres from the beautiful Porthmeor beach. Famous for its sunsets, surf and the Tate gallery.

The open plan interior is filled with St Ives light, due to its double aspect position and high vaulted ceiling, the flooring throughout is real oak and pine.   1 Ropewalk is located in the down-long area, an old conservation part of central St Ives, the building was once used to store pilchards; it then became a central part of the artistic community, and is still surrounded by art studios and galleries today.

Porthmeor beach is 50 paces away, 1 Ropewalk has the rare addition of an integral garage, unusual in this prime location.  The cottage contains all the mod cons you require from your holiday; a dishwasher, washer/dryer, TV, DVD player, free wifi etc.  Full central heating is provided via a new Worcester boiler, making it an ideal winter escape, as it remains warm throughout the year and  the integral garage means you won’t get wet walking from the car.

The living room has a fully sprung sofa bed and additional small sofa, there is a dining area with seating for 4. The kitchen is fully equipped, and the spacious bathroom has a full size bath with powerful Mira shower over.

A full sized enclosed tread staircase leads to a mezzanine bedroom with King Size bed which can also be converted to 2 small singles.  There is a low beam to one side of the bed, and a high ceiling to the other side.

At Ropewalk we allow well-behaved dogs and their owners. From Porthmeor beach there is an area called the Island pictured left, which is open throughout the year for dog-walking.  Also starting from Porthmeor beach is the stunning coastal path to Zennor, pictured below, a stretch of beautiful unspoilt coastline and abundant wildlife, the village  is very attractive, famous for its mermaids, D.H. Lawrence and it’s quirky museum. It has a lovely old pub, The Tinners Arms, dog friendly, where you can take sustenance before your return journey.
