Built in 1804, the terrace housed the families of workers on surrounding Porthmeor farms for many years. Now sympathetically restored to its former character with wood panelled staircase and period furniture, the cottage is light and airy with well appointed kitchen and bathroom, with underfloor heating.
The large double bedroom overlooks the garden and sea to Godrevy beaches and has plenty of storage space. The smaller craftsman-built 'cabin' bedroom is perfect for 2 children or 2 adults but be aware that one bed is shorter than standard (5'9') but the bunk bed, reached by a short ladder, is the full 6'3'.
Situated just off the Stennack, it is easily accessible to the heart of St Ives with its shops, restaurants and local beaches.
A paved terrace and barbecue make the south-facing garden ideal for outdoor eating, with pleasing aspect of herb and flower beds.
Rental includes gas, electricity,shower and bath, dishwasher, washing machine,good quality mattresses, organic bedlinen and towels, wireless broadband and television/DVD.

Gilly Wyatt Smith purchased this cottage in 2013
Attracted to the many original features and delightful setting on this pedestrian terrace.
Its open sunny aspect on quiet friendly terrace, and cosy interior and garden.
Pretty, cosy, well equipped and well thought out cottage. Essentials like tea and dishwasher tabs in situ. Flowers and eggs a homely, welcoming touch from the owner. We were initially concerned that it might feel a bit small with our two boisterous boys aged 5 and 3 but the open plan layout downstairs and bench seating by the table was perfect. Upstairs the cabin bunk room with 'den' space delighted our sons and the main bedroom and bathroom were great too. Although charming and in keeping with the style of the cottage, we did not make use of the desk or dresser and wondered if two small sofas might make more comfortable use of the space? Nice to have a bit of outdoor space, set back from the road and the nieghbours were kindly tolerant of our boys rushing up and down the causeway. Location is perfect with a young family, local co-op 5 mins walk away and beaches and town centre with lovely shops only 10mins. Up the hill there was a handy play park and rec area barely 2 mins walk. Most of the local cafes, restaurants and pubs catered well for children (the famous Sloop Inn does not offer a kids menu). Our family favourite spot was Porthmeor beach with a mixture of sand and rockpools, deck chair and windbreak hire from the surf school and fantastic tapas from the beach resturant. Also excellent cafe downstairs with outdoor seating and takeaway options. The beach kept our kids happy every day with the options of the museum, Tate, swimming pool and penny arcade for rainy days. We only moved our car once all week to visit nearby Paradise Park bird sanctuary, great for families. All in all a great cottage in a wonderful spot, relaxing despite a busy half term holiday.
Morvennol is a wunderful place to stay. The Cottage is very well equipped, clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated - there were even fresh flowers in the vase.
Gilly was very helpful during the booking process. Gilly welcomed us with fresh eggs form her own hens - very delicious.
The cottage is also very suitable if you are traveling without a car - the way to the train and bus station is not far. I would recommend this property to friends and relatives - and I hope I will return one day to Morwennol.
A lovely relaxing stay in st Ives. Great location overlooking sea and nice walk down into the buzz of st Ives or up hill to the Leach pottery. Perfectly equipped house with personal touches of decor and paintings to enjoy. After a day out relaxed with a Pimms watching Wimbledon on the discreetly placed tv.
We spent a week in this lovely cottage which is very well placed for St Ives. The cottage has been very tastefully and sympathetically renovated by its owner who has made good use of the space. It is decorated with lovely colour schemes and art work and has a friendly, homely vibe. From upstairs there are nice views over towards Carbis bay and the centre of St Ives is on your doorstep. There is a lovely terrace area and garden to sit in and the cottage forms part of a small row of charming cottages with lovely gardens. By the end of the week we were totally relaxed and did not want to leave - we will be back again in the future. We could happily have stayed there.
The cottage is located nearby the center of St. Ives. The house has al the facilities you need. It is well maintained, it has a nice garden to sit in and have a bbq (witch is in the house). Shops are also nearby and it takes only 10 minutes of walking to the beaches of St. Ives. St. Ives offers a lot of restaurant, bars and beautiful gallery's. If you like walking than yo are on tye good spot. Beautiful walking routes on the coast.
We certainly would recommend this property to friends and relatives.
During our journey through Cornwall, Morwennol Cottage was the highlight of accommodations. Our family of four stayed there for three nights. Although the weather was not too nice we enjoyed the cottage so much!It´s cosy living room, we prepared dinner in the fully equipped kitchen and liked just to be there. It is only a 5 minute walk to the wonderful and lively city centre and harbour of St. Ives. Don´t miss to visit Gillys wonderful gallery close to St.Ives!
Picturesque seaside town with attractive harbour and boat trips. Famous for its artists and galleries, including the Tate and Barbara Hepworth Sculpture studio.
