Number Six St Ives - A Stylish Two Bedroomed Cottage In The Heart Of St Ives

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Cottage in Central St Ives Cornwall. Quiet, Yet Central Location, Minutes From The Harbour, town centre, And Beaches.

Number Six is a charming and stylish cottage that captures the essence of St.Ives; the white painted sitting-room leads through an open doorway to the kitchen/dining-room, and outside is a little private patio, with enough space to hang out the wetsuits, and maybe have a coffee. Up the cottage stairs are the fresh and light bathroom and two chic bedrooms, the double furnished with a gorgeous contemporary four-poster bed, the second bedroom has twin beds. The house sleeps four people, has full central heating, and BT Infinity broadband and TV. The house is very central, yet quietly situated. The World renowned Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, run by the Tate Gallery, is just down the lane, and we are close to all the local amenities, beaches and attractions. Number Six is an ideal base for a stay in St Ives, and the chance to enjoy a 'car free' holiday. There are amazing beaches, fantastic restaurants, and wonderful scenery all within a couple of minutes walk. All of our guests have enjoyed Number Six, and we have had wonderful feedback from them.

Between Easter and October, we operate a FRIDAY changeover day, with short breaks available between November and Easter

About Mr M Freedman

We are now almost retired, live in Somerset and have been visiting St Ives all our lives. We love our cottage here - we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Mr M Freedman purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Mr M Freedman chose St Ives area

Having owned previous properties close to St Ives, we chose to buy Number Six because of it's location and charm. It is very central, yet quietly located. We love being almost in the centre of town, yet away from the hubub! Number Six is a perfect place to enjoy a car free holiday and enjoy the beaches, the walks, the galleries, and of course, the restaurants.

What makes this cottage unique

Quiet, yet central, with wonderful feedback from all of our guests.

We are happy to accept a small dog (£25 charge), and the house is, of course, strictly no smoking.

Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All linen and duvets, including bath towels, hand towels, and tea towels, is provided. Number 6 will be cleaned prior to your arrival and on your departure. A weekly change of linen will be provided for fortnightly guests.

Number Six St Ives - A Stylish Two Bedroomed Cottage In The Heart Of St Ives
average rating of 4.9375 based on 19 reviews

Utterly gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

No. 6 is a truly contemporary home. The decor and artworks the owners have collected are so beautiful. The 'home' is truly that - not some sterile rental. It's located in a great spot in St. Ives - far enough away from the masses but close enough to everything that is important. Stunning beaches, charming shops and a multitude of art galleries, contemporary restaurants and tempting cafés. A wonderful place to spend time away in.

Number six is superb!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a wonderful week in st Ives, staying at the delightful 'Number Six' The cottage was immaculately clean upon our arrival, it has a contemporary feel, with lots of fabulous artwork to admire. It has obviously been lovingly restored. It was lovely and warm as the cleaner had kindly put the heating on, and everything was easy to find, and use, with all of the user manuals, should you need them, neatly filed in a folder. There was also another file with lots of information and recommendations for places to eat in the local and surrounding areas, which we found really useful. The owners were a pleasure to deal with, right through from booking, to leaving the property. All in all, number six is a delightful house in the centre of town, but on a very quiet street with hardly any traffic. It is a couple of minutes walk away from all there is to see and do in this glorious seaside town. We would recommend without hesitation.

First class stay!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Number Six in St Ives already this year (a week in April) and returned for a weekend break in October. It is like a home from home for us and we love returning to this pretty cottage after a day out walking and enjoying the beautiful Cornish coastline.

The cottage is homely, warm and comfortable. The owners, Michael and Juliet, have thought of everything to make your stay relaxing and comfortable including a fully-equipped kitchen, washing machine and beautifully decorated master bedroom.

The cottage is perfectly located: only a stone's throw from Fore Street and yet quiet and peaceful. I am already planning my return to Number Six in 2017!

Number six leaves nothing to be desired. Everything you need is right there plus Artworks and atmospheric sea-side and St Ives reflective decor.
