We have tried to make the holiday cottage a warm and friendly place to stay. It is comfortably furnished and is well equipped with entertainment for cosy evenings in. It is our aim to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. Many of our visitors return year after year and we hope you too will enjoy your stay.
Porth Enys is an Georgian Grade II Listed terraced cottage. It is about 175 years old and the front walls are of cut and dressed granite blocks. The cottage still retains much of it's original character and has a warm and friendly feel which seems to be appreciated by our visitors - see their comments.
The front door of the cottage opens onto a raised pedestrian terrace above the main road down into St. Ives and is only about 200-250 yards from the town centre, but is far enough away not to be troubled by the daytime hussle and bussle. The walk into the town is downhill. Coming back there is a short climb, but no serious hill-climbing is needed.
The accommodation at Porth Enys consists of :-
A large lounge with comfortable seating for up to ten persons. There is a 40" flat screen teletext tv, a vcr, dvd recorder, hi-fi system, and various books, games and some dvd's/videos. Wi-fi internet access is also available. There is also a small casual dining table.
A separate dining room.
The kitchen is well equipped with an electric oven/hob with hood, an automatic washer/dryer, a fridge freezer, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, etc. There is plenty of cupboard space and work surface.
There are a total of five bedrooms. There are two double bedded rooms and one single at the front of the cottage whilst at the rear is a twin bedded room, and a children's room with two bunk beds(both at floor level for safety). The main bedrooms have plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, the fifth children's room having only a small chest of drawers. Most bedrooms have a flat screen tv, one has a vcr, and all have a built-in dvd player.
There is a full bathroom with w.c., shower, bath, etc., and a further separate w.c.
All the accommodation is carpeted - the lounge and rear bedroom have been re-carpeted for 2008 - except for the kitchen and the bathroom, and there is central heating throughout.
Outside, there is parking area for up to three cars, a sloping and south facing garden, and a small sheltered courtyard which, in high summer, is sunny for the main part of the day. There is also a patio table and seating for 6. Views over St Ives Bay may be had from the car parking area, or by walking a few yards to The Malakoff.
