The property

Elevated above the award-winning Porthminster Beach in St. Ives, one of the most beautiful and most sought-after locations in Cornwall is 6 Albany Terrace, an exceptional Victorian house with sensational sea views, coupled with an opulent interior making it an heavenly retreat throughout the year.

Enjoying three floors of tradition and style, as well as being within striking distance of a number of beaches and great activities and attractions, 6 Albany Terrace is the ultimate base large groups of families and friends to call home as they explore Cornwall.

Inside, the grand entrance hallway gives an immediate sense of the history of this Victorian home and grants access to the principal rooms.

Enter into the sitting room, which boasts a warming woodburning stove, a 55” OLED TV and a characterful tall bay window, yet the pièce de résistance is the view over St. Ives Bay and towards Godrevy Lighthouse.

Beyond here is the well-appointed kitchen/diner, spy the wonderful welcome pack before making use of the superb range of quality appliances, with the Range cooker taking centre stage.

From here, slip through into the utility, which works in synergy with the kitchen, boasting another dishwasher for keeping the kitchen clutter free for the chef of the group and laundry equipment for freshening up any belongings.

Return to the hallway to find the well-stocked games room, boasting a 65” OLED TV and multi games table, promising hours of family-fun.

For a moment's peace and serenity, sneak away to the second-floor sitting room, a stylish space where the sea views continue to captivate!

As the evening draws to a close, retire one of the six elegantly appointed bedrooms, comprising of four double beds with en-suite shower rooms, a double bedroom and a bunk bedroom, offering a flexible sleeping arrangement to suit a range of party make ups.

The garden at 6 Albany Terrace has been designed to be an extension of the house itself, with a long lawned front garden with sun terrace, featuring a seating area for basking in the sunshine with a cooling beverage in hand, listening to the soundtrack of the nearby coast, bliss!

For the evenings where you do not feel like cooking, head into the centre of St. Ives, where you are in for a foodie treat, with a superb collection of fine restaurants serving the catch of the day, beachside cafés and country pubs, with plenty of opportunities to sample the mighty Cornish pasty and a traditional Cornish cream tea.

Things to do in St. Ives includes marvelling at the local art work at Tate St Ives and the Barabara Hepworth Museum or dipping your toes in the azure waters of the collection of beaches here, with great swimming and surfing opportunities to be had.

Avid ramblers can don their walking boots and set off along the South West Coast Path, taking the path west to visit the Gurnard's Head, Pendeen Watch Lighthouse and the Bronze Age site of Mên-an-Tol or strolling east to find the beaches of Porthminster, Carbis Bay and Porthkidney.

Penzance is slightly further afield, but is well-worth a visit, home to a pretty promenade, Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens and Trengwainton Garden, offering something for all ages.

The Lizard heritage coast is also within striking distance and is considered to be the most scenic stretch of coastline in Britain, where you will find the legendary Land’s End and the incredible Minack Theatre.

With all this and much more awaiting to be enjoyed, secure your stay at 6 Albany Terrace to explore this part of Cornwall.

About the location


Penzance 6 miles.

One of Cornwall's prettiest harbour towns, St Ives offers narrow streets, tight-packed cottages nestling around the quayside, the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth museum, fabulous beaches, superb shops, a thriving community of artists, great pubs and restaurants and much more. With its semi Bohemian lifestyle and romantic air, it's easy to see why this is the county's premier holiday resort. The surrounding area has much for the visitor to see and do with abundant wildlife, fabulous coastal walks, top quality surfing and the Celtic mysteries of the Land's End Peninsula are all within easy reach. A superb destination!
