About the property

Betty's is a beautifully presented Cornish cottage built in the mid 1800s.

Our newly renovated cottage is well equipped and furnished with much thought for your comfort and relaxation. The 2 bedrooms are furnished with a kingsize bed in the master bedroom and 2 single beds in bedroom 2, cleverly arranged to maximize the space, that along with a double sofa bed in the lounge provide flexible sleeping arrangements.

You can enjoy the luxury and convenience of the location, as you are a 5 minute stroll to the harbour and just a short distance away from the stunning and child friendly Porthminster beach, Porthmeor and Porthgwidden beach along with the Tate Gallery which are all within easy walking distance.

We have secure parking within a parking compound just a minutes walk away on from the cottage.

About Gordon and Jo

We are the proud owners of Betty's Cottage. After many happy family holidays in St Ives, we fell in love with the area. It captured our hearts and soul. We bought the cottage early 2015 and have since lovingly refurbished it to provide you with all the comforts you would need for a home away from home.

As a small family we enjoy skimming stones and building sandcastles at Porthminster beach, body boarding at Porthmeor beach, fishing,crabbing and seal spotting in the harbour.

We always feel very happy here and invite you to share in our affection for St Ives.

We hope that we have thought of everything to make your stay as perfect as possible.

Gordon and Jo purchased this cottage in 2015

Return visitor to the lovely St Ives and Betty's Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My second visit to St Ives and the lovely Betty's. Fell in love with this pretty seaside town at first sight and staying at Betty's makes it extra special. As soon as I arrived I felt at home. The cottage is just beautiful and close to the town, harbour and beaches. The parking space is a real bonus. Planning a return trip already.

Refreshingly decorated, excellent location, loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time here. The cottage is perfectly located for all amenities. The decor is very befitting for the area with lovely artwork. The whole layout and colour scheme is so refreshing and gives a lovely relaxing atmosphere.

Jo and Gordon have been fantastic throughought. Their attention to detail really made the experience a pleasant one.

We chose a great week to come with fabulous weather which made it all the better for exploring. Really wanted to stay, we were all sad to leave! But we will return to St.Ives and will definitely stay at Betty's Cottage many more times!

Beautiful Betty's . . . A Home from Home in St Ives

  • 5 of 5

Bettys cottage is a beautiful self catering let in St ives. This was our first stay in self catering and it was a delight. Bettys was so cosy and instantly homely. The decor was so tasteful and modern mixed with the seaside feel you want when you are away in a place like St ives. Everything you would need for a couple or even a family. So close to the town centre and food stores. Bettys was equipped with all that you needed for a getaway and more incl board games, games consoles. I loved the quirky ornaments in the cottage so much i hunted them down in st ives and brought a couple simular for myself to always remember our stay. I would recommend this cottage highly it was clean also which is a must for me although there was a tiny bit of attention to detail needed within the cleaning aspects. My only let down was parking with this property. I new ahead of staying there was no parking providing but it was a huge pain especially if you left to go out for the day or were willing to pay for a permit or parking fees. I understand this cannot be helped and it wont stop us returning! We loved our stay and hope to come back to bettys cottage again soon.
