This cottage is just what we were looking for. I’d avoid staying in the centre of St Ives in the summer months but in February it was perfect. You’re right in the heart of everything yet it’s tucked away in a peaceful quaint street. Parking is a few minutes walk away up a steep hill. We bought a weekly permit which was fantastic as we could use it to stay at all the places we visited over the week. The cottage itself has everything you’d need and is surprisingly large upstairs offering three bedrooms with lots of storage for clothes. The utility/boot room area downstairs was also a very useful area. Comfortable stay overall. We lost heating and hot water one day but this was fixed the same day

Miss F,

Well equipped, tastefully decorated, picturesque, dog friendly, ideally located and very good value for the price paid.

Mr E,

A comfortable and very convenient cottage. Nicely decorated throughout, comfy lounge and nice shower.

Mrs C,

Great cottage in a great location.

Mrs S,


St Ives is one of Cornwall's top destinations and a beautiful seaside town where visitors can enjoy a traditional beach holiday with a twist. It's easy to understand why the town has been attracting painters, sculptors and ceramists for decades with its stunning scenery and natural quality of light- one of only four Tate Galleries in the world is located here in the heart of the town. The town itself arcs around the working harbour- the heart of the historic fishing community. You could lose yourself for hours in the charming cobbled streets which are crammed with gift and craft shops, art galleries, top notch restaurants and welcoming local pubs- a real treasure trove just waiting to be explored!

St Ives also has four fabulous beaches, Porthmeor, Porthgwidden, Harbour beach and Porthminster which between them offer miles of golden sand and hours of building sand castles, playing in the rock pools and other family friendly activities. Dogs are welcomed out of season. Throughout the year, St Ives has a busy event calendar including the St Ives Food & Drink Festival in May and a Music & Arts Festival in September.

So what are you waiting for? Why not discover what St Ives is all about today!
