“A lovely apartment, just a stone's throw from the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

My partner and I enjoyed a week at One Beach Court in July when we attended a wedding in St Ives. I looked long and hard for an apartment that was not at the top of the town (up the steep hills) but that offered value for money in the busy (and expensive) school holidays.

What sold me on Beach Court was the distance to the beach - it is literally a stones throw away from the lovely Porthgwidden Beach featuring the wonderful Porthgwidden cafe where we had a delicious breakfast one day and a seafood supper on another. It is also very easy to walk into town and infact, to get anywhere in St Ives.

St Ives has several lovely beaches but the Porthgwidden one is a little more tucked away and, whilst it was busy in the school hols, I would imagine it would be a real haven out of peak times.

The apartment itself is compact and bijous. there is no getting away from the fact that it is fairly small and, although it has two bedrooms, it's really only big enough for a couple or a couple and one baby/child. Both bedrooms have fitted wardrobes which helps with the space issue. It is generally well-equipped and has everything you need in the kitchen plus and iron etc for use if needs be. My only comment would be that there is probably too much furniture in the living space.

Like the rest of the apartment, the bathroom is clean and tidy and the shower is more than powerful enough to remove the sand from the day.

I don't like to finish on a negative but BE AWARE the car parking spaces is a LONG way away from the apartment. Once we had eventually found it, It then took us about 25 mins to walk back.

All in all, a lovely place to stay, seconds from the beach and only minutes from the town. I would book if you are a couple or a small family.
