Beautiful house, amazing view
Lovely house in a quiet oasis just off the main street in St Ives. Stunning view across the ever changing harbour and up to Godrevy and the lighthouse
House is beautifully designed. Well equipped kitchen with the basics very kindly supplied - salt/pepper/teabags etc Loved having the drying room for wetsuits/beach towels etc
We would love to stay here again.
Only warning, there is basically no vehicular access anywhere near, so everything has to be carried in from the car park down/up the steep steps.
A beautiful cottage in an idyllic location
In the centre of St Ives with truly wonderful views of the harbour, Admiral Cottage is a fabulous holiday let. Every detail has been thought of and owner Melanie provided us with a great information folder, all the utensils and equipment you would have at home and even the means to make a very welcome cuppa on arrival. I could have spent days looking at the view from the 1st and 2nd floor windows and tiny garden at the front was a little haven of tranquility. Seconds from wonderful shops and restaurants. I wish it was mine.
Great holiday home with beautiful view!
Modern, comfortable home with everything you need. Great view over the bay and out to sea, which is a short walk away. Shop less than 5 mins walk, St Ives not far. Would recommend highly!
This is a review for Birdsong, not Admiral, my mistake ( owner).
I know you did also visit into the cottage which is in the centre of St Ives and made the same comment about stunning views and a great
location. We bought the cottage over 26 years ago and Birdsong followed 10 years later when our family grew in size. Melanie
Beautiful cottage,gorgeous views,peaceful position
We loved our week at this beautiful ,homely cottage. Peaceful position but only minutes walking to the main amenities of St Ives.
As for the view..... Absolutely stunning! We woke every morning,amazed by it.
Plenty of lovely restaurants nearby, we liked the Seafood Cafe and can recommend the coffees at the Cafe Pasta, especially enjoyed sitting on the bench outside,looking at the harbour. Beautiful beaches,great for just a swim or for bodyboarding. Minack theatre is beautiful and worth a visit.
We will definitely return to Admirel Cottage, on our own and with family ,it's ideal for both.
Missing it already 😊
lovely harbour view
We all loved Admiral Cottage. It is completely central and yet perfectly tucked away and very quiet at night. The view over rooftops to the harbour is gorgeous and means you never feel cut off from the sea. It's well and stylishly furnished. We all liked getting back there after a day on the beach and it really felt like home. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is the access by steep steps which is fine for most people but a bit of a challenge with a buggy. We wished we'd booked two weeks instead of one.
Thanks for your comments, and we'd love to have you back!
Good for a short break
I've been to St Ives a few times. This place really shines if you've got kids or you just want to be very central. It's hidden just off the Main Street so has a bit of seclusion but really easy to get everywhere.
Property was clean and well maintained. Didn't really have much contact with the owner but they seemed nice. There is a good restaurant called the seafarer just below the steps leading to this house. I would really recommend that too.
All in all would definitely recommend. One of the best places I've stayed in St Ives.
Thank you for your review, our location and views are why we bought it 25 years ago. It is just off Fore Street but tucked away, so is very central but a little oasis from the business of the main road and harbour. I hope you return to us soon.
We are in the centre of St Ives. A town where you can find the Tate St Ives, Hepworth Gallery, Surf School and beautiful beaches.
