The accommodation, on the first and second floors of the cottage, combines the classic charm of a fisherman’s cottage, with exposed stone walls bringing a delightful sense of St Ives history, with the comfort of modern furnishings. The main living space on the first floor comprises an open kitchen, living and dining area. The bathroom, which is accessed from the landing, has a white suite, slate floor tiles and heated towel rail. The main bedroom is on the same level and clothes storage is provided by fitted cupboards and chest of drawers.
From the landing stairs lead to the second bedroom which is provided with full sized twin beds and fitted wardrobe. The room has views over rooftops to Godrevy Lighthouse to the front, and the Tate Gallery, Porthmeor and Clodgy Point to the rear. A desk is positioned at the front window, for writing that book, or sketching that work of art!
There is a small enclosed patio to the front.
Have only praise for this cosy, clean cottage. The location was ideal, with the sun rising over the lighthouse out the lounge window. Beaches and the island are a short walk away, as is the harbor. You don't need a car to enjoy everything St Ives has to offer. The top floor has 2 dormer windows with glass on 3 sides, affording water views. You can see the chapel on the island from one window and the sunrise & lighthouse from the other.
Bathroom is updated and clean. Linens and beds were very nice & comfy. Kitchen is small but serves its purpose for breakfast & lunch meals in.
Would have been nice to have wifi, laundry & parking but even without those extras, we found it a wonderful place to call our own on our visit to St Ives.
Das liebevoll eingerichtete Haus liegt in unmittelbarer Nähe zum Strand und bietet einen wuderschönen Blick auf das Meer. Wir haben
unseren Urlaub sehr genossen.
We had a lovely week in this clean, well maintained cottage with very helpful owner. The property was very tastefully renovated and decorated and, in spite of being small, still had enough space for four of us. It's very light and airy with wonderful views of the sea at the front and only a very short walk to the beach!! The property is on the first and second floor of the cottage but there is absolutely no disturbance from people below. However, this makes it unsuitable for the disabled and possibly older people.
We would thoroughly recommend this cottage and really enjoyed our stay in such a historic old fishermens' area and so close to all the amenities St Ives has to offer - everything is within walking distance including all the great shops and restaurants! Lovely place!
The property is situated in a tucked away location in the heart of Downalong, (the old fisherman’s quarter), adjacent to the Island (with St Michael's Chapel and Coastguard Lookout perched on the top) between Porthmeor and Porthgwidden beaches and the harbor.
St Ives, renowned for its colony of artists, natural wildlife habitat, and its surf, is a beautiful town with golden sands and a clear sea. Situated on the north Cornish coast, its colorful cosmopolitan atmosphere, maze of cobbled streets and jumble of fisherman’s cottages blend with an eclectic selection of shops and galleries centered around the picturesque harbor. St Ives has been complemented in recent years by a range of good restaurants and cafes and this, coupled with its artistic attractions (Barbara Hepworth Gardens, Tate St Ives and numerous galleries and working studios) further enhances its unique atmosphere and year round appeal.
