West by Five is a three storey Edwardian house located to take full advantage of the beautiful coastal and ocean views standing on top of the hill above Porthmeor Beach. The house has four letting rooms situated on the first and second floors and all accessed by flights of stairs. The owner’s accommodation is situated on the ground floor.
Porthmeor Beach and the Tate Gallery are a few minutes walk down hill, mostly steps. Whilst the town centre is a few minute walk down hill through the famous quaint and winding streets of St Ives.
West by Five does not have private parking but we do have the space for you to pull in to unload your luggage before parking your car in one of the town’s eight car parks. Please see our Parking page for details.
St Ives has many car parks situated throughout the town and you will probably find that once you have parked your car you will not need it again during your stay. The picturesque winding narrow streets of St Ives are best enjoyed on foot. Be prepared for cobbled streets and hills, plus of course great scenery and excellent restaurants.
