Large spacious cottage in the heart of St Ives

  • 4 out of 5
The cottage was absolutely great - perfect location right in the heart of St Ives and within walking distance to 3 beaches; very spacious (especially compared to the other cottages nearby) and fully equiped kitchen. My wife loved the kitchen and the 6 range stove.

The cottage can easily accomodate 6 people and you would not feel crowded as enough space for privacy - the master bedroom is huge with own couch. Would recommend this for any family as a perfect holiday rental in St Ives.

Car: not necessary

It is a lovely traditional seaside town made famous by artists such as Alfred Wallis, Ben Nicholson and Barbara Hepworth.

There are lots of lovely galleries including the Tate. There is a surfing beach called Porthmeor, a beautiful sheltered harbour and a pretty beach called Porthgwidden.

It is a very pretty town full of character, cottages, galleries and seaside cafes. Lovely fish restaurants and a relaxed pace. A great place to get away from it all, for a break for a family or couple. Close to the Eden Project and to the Minnack outdoor theatre.

Notes:
A stunning interior designed cottage which has lots of charm and character. Originally old sail lofts it is unusually spacious for St Ives. Very close to three beautiful beaches. There is a great kitchen with a six hob cooker. There is plenty of light in the property and nice views down to the harbour (a sea glimpse!) and over the rooftops of St Ives. We're close to great restaurants, galleries and a lovely old pub called The Sloop. All in walking distance.
