Property code: OC-MINMAR

Four can get a flavour of Cornish life with a break at this pet-friendly fisherman’s cottage. Flagstone floors, delightful log burner, exposed stone walls and snug window seating set the scene for a town-centre stay to remember, while the walled courtyard is ideal for basking in the sun and storing beach gear.

The epitome of coastal-cool, this historic cottage combines original features with tasteful updates, offering all the comforts of a high-end home close to all the St Ives hot spots. Located on a quiet side-street, it welcomes guests into an open-plan living/dining room packed with period details; stretch out on the sofa, chat around the table or catch up on your favourite TV programme – however you spend time here, it’s sure to be comfortable. A hand-built galley-style kitchen is bang up to date, with a stylish Belfast sink, coffee machine and all the essentials for an effortless stay; a cloakroom completes the convenience of the ground floor. Upstairs there are two peaceful bedrooms – one with a double bed and vanity unit, the other with twin beds – and a pretty family bathroom down one step. The waterfront is less than 400m from your doorstep, but for fresh air away from the crowds you can sit in your own sunny, walled garden. If you’ve brought wetsuits and surfboards, there’s space to store them here too, and for added convenience, private parking may be available at an additional cost.

All the St Ives harbour and town centre attractions are close by – Porthminster Beach has golden sands and a putting green, while, on the other side of the peninsula, pristine Porthmeor beach – a favourite for surfing – sits below the world-famous Tate St Ives art gallery. The South West Coast Path joins the two, encircling the headland known as The Island that juts out into St Ives Bay. If you’d like to explore further afield, Land’s End is a 20-mile drive south-west, and romantic St Michael’s Mount at Marazion is less than 10 miles away.

We loved our stay in Minmar Cottage. The weather was pretty awful whilst we were there for the week, but it made it all the more cosy as the cottage was always so warm and welcoming after a wet & windy walk. The cottage is situated down a quite street with parking opposite for a fee, though the parking spaces are very tight. Minmar is in a great Read morelocation with all amenities close by. The cottage is spacious enough for what we needed as a small family, and with a bonus of a downstairs toilet as well. There is a small enclosed garden as well which is ideal for people with dogs like ourselves. We would definitely recommend to others & hope to stay their again Hide

Perfect stay in St Ives! Minmar cottage was so cosy and felt like a home from home. Spotlessly clean and great facilities. We particularly liked all of the games and complimentary tea and coffee - nice touch.

A truly special little cottage in a brilliant location. The space is beautifully decorated, well equipped and easy to live in. St Ives is so beautiful and the areas such as Caribs Bay around the town are also well worth exploring. We had a really super stay.
