The cottage is perfectly located in the centre of town (level walking all around) with bakeries, supermarket, restaurants allwithin a couple of minutes walk. The living area is superb with a cathedral ceiling so the room feels spacious. Kitchen is equipped well but with all the superb restaurants we didn’t cook once. The view is superb and we spent hours sitting on the window seat just staring at the sea. Loved the cottage, loved St Ives and will be back to stay!

Mrs D,

Mrs W,

Lovely bright feel to this idyllically located holiday apartment. The view is what makes the property special. A large picture window provides a close up of beach and water: mesmerising!

Ms T,


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!
