Overview

About the property

Trewartha Cottage in St Ives, Cornwall, England - Sleeps 4 people, ideal location just steps from the town centre and beaches

Trewartha is perfect for a family holiday or a break away for couples, and well behaved dogs are welcome to stay too so they can also enjoy the fantastic walks on the beaches and the coastal paths (and being with you of course!). Most of the attractions in St.Ives such as the harbour, Tate Gallery and the beaches are just a few minutes walk. The kitchen is well equipped for your comfort, although there are so many wonderful restaurants, cafes and pubs in St.Ives you probably won't want to cook. The cottage has 2 bedrooms (1 double,1 twin) each with its own washbasin.

About Sarah Bennett

I used to visit my grandmother in St Ives when I was young, and now I have my own house here! I am married with 4 children and we all love spending time in St.Ives

Sarah Bennett purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Sarah Bennett chose St Ives area

St Ives is a magical place and so beautiful. I'm not very keen on the seagulls trying to steal my ice-creams but on sunny days I do love to sit on the rocks near the cottage watching out for the porpoises, dolphins and seals that sometimes pass by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed here with some gal pals for a relaxing holiday last summer and I'm hoping to stay at this great, traditional cottage again this year. The location is just perfect and the cottage is roomy enough for four and lovely and bright and airy. I was a bit concerned about previous guests having pets because I can be a bit allergic - however, the cottage was clean and smelled fresh and not at all 'doggy'!! St Ives is a wonderful, magical place - and there's little can beat a quiet drink outside The Sloop before dining at one of the many very local restaurants (I particularly like the Mermaid and Blas Burger).

Wow, what a great location and lovely cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We went for a long weekend for my wife's birthday, purely because we love St. Ives and there is nowhere we'd rather be. We have been to 14 different properties in St.Ives over the years and this is the loveliest location of them all. Literally around the corner from two beaches and very close to the town itself and for a change, in a flat/level area. The property is extremely nice, well cared for and beautifully clean. The worst part of the break was having to come back home.

Fabulous location, cosy and comfy cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was scrupulously clean on arrival. Loved that it had everything we needed, yet was uncluttered. Very comfy bed

The location is fabulous - a two minute walk to the beach, town and pub.

Would recommend 'Olives' which is just around the corner.

Totally relaxing stay at Trewartha, hope to return soon.

Cosy, well equipped and brilliantly located

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week's holiday at Trewartha. The cottage is in a quiet street very close to both Porthmeor and Porthgwidden beaches. It was perfect for us (two adults and two adult sized teenage boys), and my impression on arriving was that the cottage was bigger than the photographs suggest. It is cosy and cute, and really well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Sarah, the owner, provided us with excellent directions to the cottage and information on car parking, as well as comprehensive information on local amenities, restaurants etc. We would highly recommend it, and we will definitely be returning to St Ives next year. The teenagers voted St Ives better than Greece or France for a holiday, even despite changeable weather!

Fabulous holiday in a cosy cottage.

  • 4 of 5

On our way home from another great holiday in St Ives. The cottage was lovely, great location and very well equipped. We are a family of four and the cottage suited our needs, although the kitchen/diner was on the small side (we didn't eat in much though).

The weather was beautiful so parked our car at the leisure centre car park and left it there all week! On that note I wouldn't bother trying to park in any of the more central car parks as you just get stuck in traffic and no spaces anyway as it is so busy now.

Thank you for a fantastic holiday 😊

Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time in St Ives staying at Trewartha. The cottage was very clean and tidy and in a great location. The weather was wonderful and our dog enjoyed the nearby beach.

Just right

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Trewartha. Clearly we loved it the first time but I was interested to find out if it would still be as charming. Of course, it was and felt homelier and even more welcoming than before. We were helped by the weather as we had blue skies all week so going out was a pleasure.

As before our communication with Sarah, the owner, was timely and informative. I didn't need the directions this time once we were close to the harbour.

Arriving through Downalong you can't help but gasp at the rows of cottages in narrow lanes punctuated by galleries and restaurants. Some of the earliest studios and galleries were in this part of town. Within a few minutes walk of the cottage are several good restaurants. The Mermaid and The Loft, my two absolute favourites are both within two minutes walk. They are busy, naturally, for the good reason that the food and ambience are both excellent, so you will need to book at busy times.

The cottages appear to be mostly for holiday makers and are all attractively decorated. A minute spent walking in the area and you can view the entire range of greys from Farrow and Ball.

Trewartha itself is easy to find and park outside to unload your stuff. We then parked in the Island car park with a weekly ticket and only moved the car once until it was time to leave. Once again this came around far too soon but I have a feeling we will be back.

The cottage is the ideal size for a couple or with young children and is well equipped with everything we could need. It also has the benefit of a bath. So many cottages have only showers these days.

Map

Coast/Beach:

There are several beautiful sandy beaches within walking distance of the house. The nearest ones are less than a minute's walk. At Porthwidden and the Harbour beach you can sometimes see seals and dolphins close to the shore. Porthmeor Beach is famous for its excellent surfing and is about 3 minutes walk from the house. Bamaluz Beach is also just round the corner and is the only St Ives beach that allows dogs all year round

Travel:

It is not essential to have a car in St Ives as there is so much to do locally. There is also an excellent train service running from the top of town, just 15 minutes walk from the cottage, and regular coach trips to a variety of landmarks in the surrounding area. If you bring a car there is parking just 100 yards away in the Island Car Park. The nearest airport is Newquay, which is about 50 minutes drive from St.Ives

Distances:

Although there are numerous things to see and do in St Ives itself, there are also many attractions within an hour's drive of the cottage. These include the Eden Project, St.Michael's Mount, the Minack Theatre (built into the cliffs), Lands End, Paradise Park (always a favourite of mine!) and The Seal Sanctuary.
