  • "Hi The place was spotless on arrival but not very child friendly for the under fives or a good spot for the elderly with mobility issues."

    Could do with clearer instructions on how to leave the bedding and the contractors did not deal with clearing all the rubbish as had been advised. A few more games in the games room would also be helpful. Overall our family had a great time apart from the above relatively minor issues.

    Thank you for leaving a review we always like to know what we are doing well but also what we can improve upon. As soon as you let me know about the refuse collection I chased the company and they did come the next day but after you had checked out. I have asked our housekeeper to leave more precise instructions as to what to do with the bedding. Due to covid we removed all books and board games due to hygiene issues. Maybe we should think about returning them to the games room again. The house is a traditional Victorian terraced town house and does have steps and different levels. We have tried to child proof where possible. It is not wheelchair friendly and maybe this is something we need to make clearer. Finally we are very glad to hear that you and your family had a great holiday. Property Owner

    Owner was incredibly welcoming & helpful. More hooks would be great in the bedrooms & a pastry brush & few bits missing in the kitchen but we were doing a lot of cooking over xmas!! Otherwise fabulous. Thank you

    Thank you for taking the time to leave such a positive review. A pastry brush will be put in the kitchen. It’s always nice to know what people need. Also we will add more hooks in the bedrooms. Property Owner

  • "All the bedrooms were a decent size with all but one having en-suites."

    The rooms on the ground floor were beautifully proportioned and the house is a stone’s throw from central St Ives. It is definitely somewhere we’d recommend.

    Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are glad that the house met expectations. Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely house with fabulous views; en-suite in every room except the bunks - and all great."

    Lovely to have a wood burner. Owner was very responsive and helpful. One thing perhaps helpful for people to know is that it’s fairly steep down to beach and if you have more than three cars or big cars / then parking is tricky. We would stay again but perhaps with elderly relatives who struggle with walking would find somewhere flatter. That isn’t the fault of the house though.

  • "House had everything we needed facilities wise everything catered for but just seemed the furniture and bedding of a “cheap poor quality” Lovely view !"


    Thank you for leaving a review. I feel that the comments about cheap poor quality bedding /furniture to be a bit harsh. The bed suppliers are those used by hotels and recommended by Sykes. We are aware that it is important for people to have comfortable beds to sleep in, sorry that you perhaps did not find this the case. All pillows and duvets are manmade as we have to be careful with allergies and with covid it makes the bedding far more hygienic and easy to clean. The furniture came from many different shops. We have tried to blend new with old so that the house feels more of a home and less like a hotel. This maybe is not to everyones taste perhaps. We are mindful of all reviews given and we are sorry that your expectations were not met but we will look again at the bedding and furniture and improve where necessary. Property Owner

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” Smart 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 advantage of a range cooker.

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 and a downstairs WC.

Return to the hallway to find the well-stocked games room, boasting a 65” Smart 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.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £750.
