Overview

About the property

Fisherman's Cottage in St Ives, Cornwall, England

Whistling Jack is a beautiful terraced fisherman's cottage, tucked away on a quiet lane right in the heart of St Ives.

The property is arranged over four floors: the lower floor is comprised of a kitchen/dining room and a bathroom; the ground floor (main entrance) is the living room; the master bedroom and family bathroom are on the first floor; and the second bedroom (with twin beds) can be found up a quaint staircase in the eaves of the house - making Whistling Jack the perfect getaway for either a couple or a family. Please note that the stairs to the top floor are narrow and quite steep.

Victoria Road is in the heart of Downalong, ideally located between three of the town's gorgeous beaches - the Harbour, Porthmeor & Porthgwidden - and just minutes from the world-renowned Barbara Hepworth museum and the Tate, not to mention St Ives' abundance of fantastic restaurants and bars. There is even a coffee house a stone's throw from the property for those mornings when instant just doesn't quite hit the spot!

About Alexandra Bright

I bought Whistling Jack in the summer of 2015 - I grew up in St Ives and my family are still here, so I wanted a place to call my own in what I consider the most beautiful place in the world. I currently spend most of my time in London, therefore let Whistling Jack when I am unable to bring friends down and use it myself.

Alexandra Bright purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Alexandra Bright chose St Ives

As soon as I saw Whistling Jack I fell in love - the location is perfect (a stone's throw from the harbour, yet tucked away on a quiet side road), and the fisherman-style cottage so quaint; exactly what I had in mind for my first home! Hopefully you will love it as much as I do.

5 Night stay. Lovely Cottage, everything you need, very clean and tidy. Very close to the sea front

  • 5 of 5

Four elderly family members, two couples. We had a great stay, days in St Ives visiting local tourist sights within the area. Eating out in St Ives was a pleasure, we never had a bad meal. The service and courtesy was first class. Highly recommended.

Lovely house, fantastic location

We had such a lovely holiday staying in Whistling Jack and hope to return soon! The house was extremely clean with all modern amenities. The location was brilliant and we were all able to come and go as we pleased between the harbour, beautiful beaches, restaurants and shops.

Perfect hideaway

  • 4 of 5

A really lovely cottage which has been lovingly restored. So close to the harbour of St Ives yet tucked away from the crowds.

We had such a relaxing time . Simply parked the car close by and relaxed.

We will be back .

Loved it!

I recently stayed at Whistling Jack and loved it. The location is ideal. It's beautifully decorated, the kitchen is large and well equipped and the beds are really comfortable.

It has everything you need for an enjoyable holiday.

I will definitely return.
