Lantern loft really is in the perfect spot. Located on the famous “Lambeth Walk” part of St Ives seafront, this beautiful cottage is literally on the water’s edge and has stunning uninterrupted panoramic views of the harbour, with its bustling fishing boats and the entire sweep of St Ives Bay’s crystal clear waters across to the golden sands of Hayle, Gwithian and Godrevy Lighthouse. Right in the beating heart of the town centre, the many shops, restaurants, cafes and bars are only seconds away. Close by is the pristine, white sandy beach of Porthminster and only a ten minute stroll to Porthmeor surfing beach and the Tate St Ives. Lantern Loft is truly a little jewel set centrally in the glittering crown of St Ives. Perfect for couples or families.

The front door to Lantern Loft is right on St Andrews Street, which immediately opens into the kitchen which is well- equipped with a fridge and freezer, electric oven, 5 ring gas hob and a washer/dryer. You will be hit by the stunning sea views as you take a few steps up to the living room. You can spends hours watching the hustle and bustle going on outside with binoculars that are provided for you and you can relax in the knowledge that you have one of the best views in town. If you get bored with the amazing view the property has Sky TV /DVD player as well as an array of books and board games.

The master bedroom has a king size bed and en suite cloakroom with WC and basin and is accessed via wooden stairs leading from the kitchen. There’s a wall-mounted TV, storage unit and hanging rail.

Steps down from the kitchen take you to the second bedroom which can either be made into a king size bed (if requested at the time of booking) or left as twin beds.

Lantern Loft is a beautifully presented, well positioned holiday home in the centre of St Ives. Everything you need is in walking distance so simply park your car up for and get exploring! We would definitely recommend this accommodation and would love to return there ourselves one day.

Mrs S,

This was our 4th time at Lantern Loft. You just cannot beat the location, sitting in the lounge watching the tide go in and out, the dogs playing on the beach, and the views across to the Harbour. Added entertainment this time watching the Naval and Police boats and jet skis for the G7 summit. The quality of furnishings can’t be faulted and the cottage has everything you could ask for. It’s also good location for all that St Ives has to offer and easy walking to all beaches and right in the town but not in a noisy location (except the occasional fighting seagulls!). Look forward to returning again later this year - and next!!

Mrs H,

Lovely comfortable property. Spent many happy hours watching the world - and the sea - from the comfort of the sofa! A beautiful place to stay.

Mrs S,

We stayed here in October half term last year and it was perfect in every way. The views are breathtaking and we had great fun watching people getting wet just outside the window! We have booked again for this October and can't wait. We stay twice a year in St Ives and this is the best holiday home we have in. Just fabulous!

Past Customer,

This was our second time staying in Lantern Loft and it didn't disappoint. Location and views really are fantastic and there is everything you need inside the cottage. Cannot fault anything and will definitely be staying again.

Past Customer,

Wonderful cottage, well equipped, beautiful outlook. We can't wait to come back.

Guest Book C,

Should have been in Barcelona celebrating our Silver Anniversary but thanks to the Coronavirus we ended up here instead. What a great replacement. The Lantern Loft is well-equipped, comfy and amazing views. Would definitely return and bring the dog.
