Painter's Cottage, St Ives cottage close to harbour and town centre

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Painter’s Cottage is a sleep 4, 2 bedrooms and 2 shower room newly renovated cottage which is perfectly cosy and a quintessentially St Ives town cottage. It has gas central heating throughout the cottage. Being moments from St Ives main cobbled lane called Fore Street you can stroll past shops, galleries, a deli with great choice of delicious homemade sweet and savoury goodies and plenty of restaurants. You are also extremely near the harbour front and beach plus just a 5 minutes’ mooch from Porthminster beach. As Painter’s Cottage is so central, any public car park in town is within a relaxed 10-minute stroll from the cottage or you may decide to leave the car at home as the train station is also a convenient walk away.

Painter’s Cottage is on Wills Lane which is a quiet narrow lane tucked behind the harbour. Enter the living, kitchen and dining area which is all furnished in shades to remind you of the sea you are so close to. Luxury Laura Ashley furniture and soft furnishings plus a super addition of an AGA wood burner for toasty evenings in means you will feel warm and suitably comfortable. Free WiFi and Smart TVs in both bedrooms and the living room means you can stay in touch with your friends and family and not have to miss out on your favourite programmes. DVDs, books and games are also provided if you prefer to be accompanied by your own tunes on the Bluetooth DAB radio. The kitchen is well equipped with the dining table and four chairs offering extra surface space if needed. There is a washer/ dryer and freezer is in a purpose-built cupboard in the small rear outside space (where there is enough room to hang a few wet suits after rinsing them down using the outside tap).

There is a down stairs shower room and loo plus a further en-suite to the double bedroom upstairs. The second bedroom can either be a king size bed or two small single beds (ideally for children).

Painters Cottage will make you feel treasured and very welcome. It will also allow you to reach every corner of St Ives town easily while passing extraordinarily beautiful seascapes along the way.

Cute Cornish cottage

  • 4 of 5

A cute little cottage with everything you need. Loved that it had two shower rooms; one on suite and bedrooms were a decent size. The position was very central to everything in St Ives but due to being in the town and on a road that people cut through it could get a bit noisy.

Fantastic little cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great property, right in the centre of St Ives. We loved our stay there, would defiantly go back. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need. The welcome gift's were a lovely touch, very much appreciated.

This property is in a good location, parking a nightmare

  • 4 of 5

The property is beautifully decorated/furnished, a bit small for 4 I think I think maybe 2 adults at a push 3

Well equipped dining wise , the welcome gifts were lovely

It can get a bit noisy at night as it's a bit of a thoroughfare to and fro from the pubs but it is a lovely place so worth putting up with. We would stop again but with no car on the train probably

Superb cottage in heart of St Ives

  • 5 of 5

What a gem of a cottage! It is cosy, welcoming and warm. We just had to walk a minute and we were on the harbour front watching the seals in the evening and the beaches are really close by too. We parked in the train station which wasn't far away at all but when we went out for a day trip and lost our space we parked at the leisure centre and it took just 5 minutes to walk back to the cottage. The beds are comfy and the fact there is wiFi and Netflix meant the kids were entertained too. Definitely recommend staying here and we tell friends and family too.
