About Laura Field

Charles grew up in Cornwall and has regularly surfed at Porthmeor beach, so it's important for us to have a base here. We love St Ives for not only its unique location but for it's lively town atmosphere all year round, there is always something to do, see and eat.

Laura Field purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Laura Field chose Saint Ives

We chose 3 Kelly's Gardens for its character, location and well proportioned rooms.

Great accommodation in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Cozy cottage with everything you need. Located in the centre of St.Ives with shops, pubs and restaurants on your doorstep. We went by train and it was less than 10 minutes walk from the train station. The harbour and beaches were minutes away. We had a fantastic time here and would recommend and also hope to return ourselves.

Siberia comes to Cornwall!

  • 5 of 5

We were unfortunate enough to time our visit to St Ives to coincide with "Storm Emma" and "The Beast from the East!" so we spent the week dressed like Eskimos. However, we still managed to enjoy our holiday and visit all the places that we planned such as the Tate, Fifteen, Padstow and The Gurnard's Head. In fact the weather reduced visitor numbers still further and ensured that we had no problems getting tables in restaurants. We did hear horror stories about some cottages where the pipes froze and the tenants lost all heating and water supplies for a few days. This was certainly not the case in 3 Kelly's Gardens. The central heating was very efficient and the wood burner made the living room very cosy every evening. The cottage was very tastefully decorated and furnished with all the equipment you would need for a short stay and the central location was ideal. In all respects an excellent choice.

Cosy and comfy

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated with tasteful and thoughtful features. A great location so central although a little noisy at night when revellers make themselves known. Loved the wood burner. Wood had been left with kindling and lighters which was so helpful. We restocked from a supplier across the road. Lovely welcome pack too. One minor point is the second bedroom bed is a little rickety and perhaps in need of attention.

Charming cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a characterful Cornish cottage while staying in St Ives and this place was perfect! We were in the centre of St Ives (but hidden down a private lane) so literally everything was on our door stop. If we had forgotten something at the beach/town we could just nip back to the cottage and get it.

The cottage had been decorated to a high standard with soothing tones throughout. Fantastic hot showers too, wow! A pack of Cornish teas, coffee, biscuits, milk and logs welcomed us which we thought was a lovely touch. We used the log burner a lot as it was so cosy.

We will be back, thank you for the great communication and helpful info!
