We are Susan and Steve. We currently live in Spain and intend to live full-time in Cornwall when we retire. Until then, we hope you enjoy our lovely cottage in St Ives as much as we do.
Why Susan chose St Ives
Year property purchased: 2013 Why this location? We chose a cottage in St Ives because we have had many happy times on holiday in Cornwall. It has all the things that we love: a choice of beaches, each with their own characteristics and all within a short distance of each other, a wide range of places to eat including some outstanding restaurants. St Ives is a pretty town with beautiful architecture, quirky narrow streets, a wide range of interesting shops, art galleries, wonderful sandy beaches and surfing all within a short walk from the cottage.
What makes this Cottage unique
The benefits of the property include a very pretty, peaceful location, spacious enclosed, south west facing, private garden, which, is safe for children, great for a BBQ and backs onto paddocks. Parking space which is a premium in St Ives allowing a walk into town or take the car to the many other fantastic coastal towns in the area including Penzance,St Michael's Mount, Marazion, Falmouth and Truro. The coastal path which runs past the cottage to Zennor is perfect for enjoying peaceful walks with fantastic country side and cliff top ocean views and benefits a lovely walk into St Ives, Porthmeor beach and the Tate. Our Study playroom helps to keep the family entertained during bad weather and provides the grown ups and children opportunity to watch their own TV/DVD.s, playstation

Back to St. Ives.
Over 30 years since we were last in St Ives & we were not disappointed. Lovely cottage, very well presented with everything you need & more for a great stay. The places to explore in & beyond St. Ives are too numerous too mention but can there be a better coastline anywhere! Would strongly recommend the cottage for a family holiday but not for a week; make it a fortnight.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are delighted you had such a wonderful time and enjoyed your stay at the cottage, so much, and found it had everything you needed and more for a great stay, as well as, enjoying all that St Ives and the surrounding area has to offer, including the spectacular coastline. We very much appreciate your strong recommendation for the cottage as a great place to stay for a family holiday and look forward to welcoming you back very soon, maybe, for a fortnight next time.
We have been going to St Ives for many years but didn't know there were cottages like this in the Consul area of the town. it is a good walk up hill to get there from the town, centre but well worth it to stay in this very old but well furnished cottage with real character. The distance from the centre also makes it quieter which for many will be a plus. A path behind the cottage to the coastal path was a fantastic way to walk to the St Ives beaches.
We had a great time.
Thank you for your review and lovely comments about our character grade 2 listed cottage which we have been advised is over 150 years old and perhaps a hidden gem in its very cornish country lane setting. So pleased you had a great time. Thank you for choosing to stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
We had a lovely time lots of walking and taking in the sea air.
A lovely cottage with character. It’s a very cosy welcoming home and a great location. Thank you.
Great house, fab location.
We really enjoyed our stay. Probably best equipped cottage we have stayed in. Lovely location, although parking was a problem. We just loved St Ives.
Just back from our 4th "great stay"
We've just returned from our 4th stay at Corner Cottage, and yet again we've had a great holiday, we love Corner Cottage for a whole number of reasons, it has a charming cottage feeling, it's very clean and tidy, and very spacious, the kitchen and dining room are very well equipped, it's like being at home, everything is there for you, even down to lovely tableware, there is a downstairs toilet and a study, the lounge is large, and has sky TV including sky sports !! the french doors lead into the garden, we particularly love this garden as we take our dog on holiday with us, the garden is large and 100% escape proof for the dog, there is a decking area and a BBQ too, upstairs has 3 double rooms, and the bathroom with a nice shower cubical, all rooms are very well decorated with lovely fresh white bedding, and the views from the master bedroom are stunning,
The cottage is on the edge of some fields which lead to the cost path, so you get the feel of a country and seaside retreat all in one, the cost path is a great, and it's a must to take the walk into St Ives, you might even spot seals or dolphins.
I would highly recommend Corner Cottage to couples with a dog (like us) and for families of all ages and sizes, it really does suit all.
We even stayed there last xmas, and was greeted with a festive welcome pack, and a fully decorated xmas tree.
We will be back for visit number 5 again soon.
Beautiful, comfortable house in a perfect location
The house is very beautiful, spacious and offers all amenities and comforts you could wish for. It is very tastefully decorated to a consistently high standard. We found it very clean and welcoming. Both the owner and the agent offered perfect support. Even when we had a major technical problem with our car they were able to recommend a garage that took care of it at once. The location offers a perfect mix. Walking time to St. Ives harbour, Porthmeor Beach and the coast path including seal-watching in some 15 mins each. And there's buses running up and down the hill, too. The house is perfectly quiet, sitting on the outer edge of a beautiful, green little neighborhood at the end of a very narrow lane. The backyard is also lovely, very private with a little lookout into the countryside. Ideal for a bbq or just relaxing. We had a fantastic time and will be back before long.
