|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
A beautiful town centre 17th century stone cottage tucked away in a quiet cobbled street. Lovingly restored and completely refurbished in 2013 to an exceptionally high standard - the cottage has all the comforts of a bijoux boutique hotel with the freedom to do as you please! Cornish Cottage is a 2 minute level stroll to St Ives harbour, restaurants, cafes, galleries, shops and beaches. Steeped in history and full of original charm and character with wonky walls, a wood burning stove with cornish granite fire surround, granite coins, window seats and exposed beams. Parking space for one car. Underfloor heating and gas central heating. Delicious Cornish Cream Tea or surprise welcome pack awaits guests on arrival! We regret the cottage is not suitable for children. Sorry - no pets allowed.
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
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.
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!
Thanks once again for a truly wonderful stay at Cornish Cottage. Counting the days until next year...! - Cath and Mark
A cosy cottage in a fantastic location.
We could not have asked for more! - Sally and Nick
Lovey, historic & cosy cottage. Equipped for all one's needs. We have had a fabulous week. - Joan and Graham
Its been a wonderful holiday with with a lovely cottage to relax in after coastal walks - Brian and Fee
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!
My husband and I stayed here for just under a week. It's a beautiful little cottage, well decorated and fully equipped with everything you could ever need.
The location is central to St Ives which is also a bonus. However at the back of the cottage is a pub and early every morning they have a delivery of kegs. The 'clung' of metal at 7am everyday was unbearable. The cottage only has single glazing so every time someone walks by you can hear exactly what they are saying, day or night, and as it on one of the tourist roads this is quite frequent. We were also disturbed by the frequent use of the wheelie bins to the side of the cottage, which again created so much noise during the day through into the night.
The cottage was exactly as described, in fact exceeded our expectations. Immaculately cleaned with a very comfortable bed and a good supply of logs to keep the fire roaring adding to the wonderful atmosphere. The shops and restaurants were just seconds away which meant that we really enjoyed eating out or taking back a Cornish pasty or a delicious fish and chip supper. Parking is important to us and meant we did not move the car throughout our stay as there is so much to do in St Ives. The welcome cream tea was a lovely surprise so thank you Ylenia and Mike for all the little touches that make this cottage a real home from home. Christine and Anthony King
Would gladly recommend this property for a short stay for two. Very convenient location to the hub of St. Ives whilst also staying out of the beaten path. Great decor and use of space with a real sense of comfort and tranquility.
We loved relaxing in the cottage and exploring St Ives.
Quiet location just off the main street, so ideal to go out for food and drink! We didn't use the car for three days which was lovely.
