Cornish Cottage is a 2 minute level stroll to St Ives harbour, restaurants, cafes, galleries, shops and beaches.

About Mrs Ylenia Haase

I live in St Ives with my husband, and our two children aged 11 and 14. It is the most wonderful place in the world to live, love and holiday!

Mrs Ylenia Haase purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Mrs Ylenia Haase chose St Ives area

Before Cornish Cottage came on the market it was always one of those properties that intrigued me. It was the type of place that every time you walked passed

you wished you could take a peek inside.

When it came on the market we couldn't wait

to view it and we both fell in love with it instantly.

It had so much character and was every bit the romantic quintessential cottage.

Steeped in history it is reputed to be the smallest and oldest house in St Ives!

We renovated and decorated the cottage in a contemporary style - careful to retain all its character features including a working open fireplace.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is a unique property in the very heart of St Ives. It is just two minutes level stroll to the harbour, shops and beaches and one minute to the Barbara Hepworth sculpture garden and Trewyn sub tropical gardens.

It has the huge advantage of the use of a parking space for our guests. If you have ever been to St Ives before you will know that this is a huge bonus!

Great stay and great weather

  • 5 of 5

My wife and stayed in late May. great cottage, perfect for two. The cottage was spotless with all we needed. The cottage is located right in the middle of the most picturesque part of St Ives. Eat out most nights, all the restaurants we visited were within a few hundered yards !

Parking in St Ives is difficult but the owner made her own parking space available outside her house which is close by. The internet connection is fast and worked first time and continued to do so.

All in a great cottage which we would recommend.

Small but perfectly formed

The cottage is situated in the perfect spot. Parking is an added bonus. It was very well equipped and the added bonus of a log burner made this a perfect stay.

We had a lovely long weekend - the cottage was perfectly located so we could leave the car parked up and just potter round town all weekend. The galleries are so lovely, and all the beaches have different things to offer. Our favourite drink spot was the Rum and Crab Shack! Then a short walk back to the cottage for supper and a cosy evening and a good night's sleep in the very comfy bed! The perfect weekend, thank you!
