About the property

2 bedroom cottage sleeps up to 6, close to the harbour and beautiful beaches.

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.

We hope to inspire a restful ambiance from where you can unwind. It is a perfect place for small families and couples alike.

Wander from your door to the harbour front with its plethora of artisan cafes and shops. 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.

Betty's Cottage is the ideal holiday retreat from where to discover the wonderful St Ives and beyond for your Cornish adventure.

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

Great house in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my husband and 6 month year old son this week. Cottage in a brilliant location close enough to town and the beaches ( just a five min walk away ) but still completely accessible, being able to park outside and unload the car was great. Cottage itself is beautiful, we had a fantastic week and look forward to staying again.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We are a Canadian family of 5 enjoying a 'gap year' of extended travel. We stayed in beautiful Betty's Cottage for a week of pure rest, relaxation and to recharge. It was perfect in every way. Gordon and Jo were lovely, thoughtful and responsive hosts. The cottage is lovingly furnished with everything our little family could want or need. It was a treat to cook dinners in a well equipped kitchen with modern appliances. We had a few days of spotty weather and the children were overjoyed with the xBox. I loved the comfortable beds with clean, crisp linens and the delightful soaker tub. The entire cottage was shiny and sparkling upon arrival and we were treated to a lovely welcome package. Both my husband and I celebrated birthdays during our week at Betty's and it was very memorable indeed. The location is also fantastic...just a few moments to the beaches and harbour and quiet at night. The friendly next door neighbour, Doug, was also a wealth of tips and handy information. We loved it so much that we'd have stayed on an extra week had it not been booked...While coming and going, more than a few people stopped to inquire about our stay and I was able to heartily recommend Betty's Cottage and St. Ives. What a stunning spot.

A great stay in a gorgeous property

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Bettys has been the best cornish holiday we have had yet. The cottage itself is full of all the home comforts you could need and we instantly felt at home. The cottage was more then big enough for our family of four and the kids loved the added xbox in the lounge. The owners Gordon and Jo were extremely helpful over email, and advised us about local parking permits. Its location is perfect for walks through Saint Ives to the shops or beaches. We can not wait to come again over new year.
