Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in St Ives area - Morwennol, 7 Bullans Terrace

2 Bedrooms, Secluded Sunny Garden; Close Walk To Harbour, Beach

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.

Very lovely fully equipped cottage

  • 5 of 5

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!

Cosy, stylish cottage with sea view from terrace

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying in the cottage. The new stove made it very cosy and although the weather was very mixed, we still managed to sit out in the warm spring sunshine on the terrace and stare out over the sea most days!

It was a pleasure to stay in a property that had been decorated and equipped with such care.

Cosy!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Morwennol, three lady artists doing a painting course at the St Ives School of Painting. The cottage is warm and cosy and beautifully decorated with just the sort of paintings we love and aspire to! The views are great and we would have loved to sit outside with a glass of wine but the weather was wild and wet so we stayed tucked up by the fire. Thanks Gilly, it would be good to return in the spring or summer, Gay, Stephanie and Elly

colourful cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in Morwennol. The cottage was warm, comfortable and cosy. We loved the colour scheme, the paintings and the comfortable beds. The cottage was well placed - very easy to walk down to Porthmeor Beach in one direction and to the centre of St Ives and shops by a different route. Gilly was friendly and available if we needed her. Lots of great places to eat nearby - we enjoyed all the Beach Cafes! Would recommend a holiday in Morwennol.

beautiful cottage with a lovely feel

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautifully done and equipped with everything you could possibly need for a super holiday. My children loved the cabin beds in their room and we all loved the sea view from the main bedroom. The terrace and outdoor area are perfect for relaxing in the sunshine. Morwennol is a super cottage in an excellent location. We had a fantastic holiday and would definitly go back.

A cottage with all the charm of yesteryear.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in the cottage. Gilly's description was completely accurate. We felt welcomed by the cottage's charm as soon as we entered the front door. It was convenient to our daily walks into town. Parking was not perfect but we soon adjusted. The second bedroom is a bit tight but we managed quite well.
