Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in St Ives - Victory Cottage
Sorry no pets, Saturday changeover, Offsite parking, No short breaks
Formerly the Victory Inn dating back to the 17th century, this grade II listed corner cottage with considerable character is set in a cobbled alleyway leading from the bustling main street in the heart of the delightful resort of St Ives. Just a few paces from the picturesque harbour and close to the shops, the renovated and comfortably furnished accommodation is on three floors with sea views over the neighbouring rooftops from the top two floors.
Entered directly from the street, half a dozen steep steps lead up to the front door which opens to a hallway with coat pegs. A wide carpeted staircase leads straight up from the hall to a half landing, a bathroom W.C. with hand basin and shower over the bath, and then to the first floor. Leading off are a neatly fitted kitchen with modern units and a cushioned window seat overlooking the cobbled lane below, and a warm and cosy living room with a cottage style lounge suite, dining furniture and glimpses of the sea over the rooftops.
On this level there are also two double bedded rooms with pine bedroom furniture and partial views of the harbour and sea over the rooftops, the larger of the two with a vanity basin and cushioned window seat. A small doorway on the landing opens to a very steep narrow staircase with a rope hand rail and leads directly up to an attic room set under a low, sloping, beamed ceiling with comfortable seating and stunning views from a dormer window over the roofs to the attractive harbour and beyond to St Ives Bay. There are four portable heaters to make the cottage feel cosy at any time of the year.
It is possible to unload close by but parking is in any of the pay and display car parks within the town. All the amenities of the town are on the doorstep with an extensive range of galleries, restaurants, pubs and cafes, and there are a choice of four magnificent beaches all within easy walking distance. The original pub sign now resides in the local St Ives Museum, and both the Tate Gallery on Porthmeor beach and the Barbara Hepworth Museum are a short stroll away. Fishing boats still operate from the lovely harbour as do pleasure boat trips and self hire boats, there is a leisure centre with swimming pool nearby and scenic circular and cliff walks around St Ives.
