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 (with king size bed) and 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
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.

well appointed flat in a great location
Flat was well located in hte old part of town close to places of interest and restaurants/shops etc. Flat had all mod cons and a welcoming bottle of Prosecco! Would definitely stay there again.
A fantastic property right in the heart of St ives
A lovely property very clean and just in the right place for exploring st ives and Cornwall, we were greeted by a lovely hamper left by the owner .
The property has everything you want including washing machine which was helpful in washing dog towels and blankets which got dirty in the wet weather.
The house is nice and warm and cosy and has loads of hot water for a bath or shower
All I can say it was lovely and highly reccomended
Thank you Graham for your lovely review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed yourselves and hope to welcome you again soon. Best wishes, Sarah
Cosy but modern everything you could want ,a wonderful location walking distance to all shops beaches pubs and cafes .We wanted for nothing 😎
Nicely set up old fisherman's cottage near the middle of St. Ives - very clean
Visiting Cornwall in December is a great time to go. No crowds.... But be ready for a bit of wind and rain. And sunshine too. You'll get it all! Lots of places still open in December to eat and shop. The locals say that parking is a bit of an issue at peak times. But that's the only down side. We really enjoyed our stay.
We found the cottage to be very convenient for both the town and dog walking on the island. It was well equipped and clean and serviceable.
We were less happy with the size and comfort of the double bed. We have never slept on 4ft 6in beds and as my husband is rather large such a small bed is most uncomfortable for us, especially one that was only a mattress on a solid bed frame, not a sprung base. Knowing this we were pleased that a choice of beds was available and I was quite happy to move to one of the single beds however there was no bedding for these two beds which we thought was rather strange. Next time we visit St ives we will look for a property that can assure us of a larger, more comfortable king size or bigger bed with a bathroom on the same floor.
Thank you for your review and your positive comments. I am disappointed that you did not mention you wanted to use one of the other beds until now, as there is always spare clean bed linen in the cupboard in case a guest requires it for any reason, so that would have been very easy to resolve at the start of your holiday if you had just told me. We only make up the beds for the number of guests staying as it reduces washing, which helps the environment, but it also means I know fresh linen is put on the beds for each guest on the day of their arrival. I do appreciate your feedback though about standard double beds. I know many cottages in St.Ives don't have enough room for a king size bed but Trewartha has very spacious bedrooms, so I will definitely look into changing the bed to help ensure my guests have a great stay. Best regards Sarah
fantastic property In an ideal location to explore beautiful st ives
The cottage exceeded all are expectations in every way. The cottage itself had everything we needed especially the very comfy bed.it was a 4 minute walk to 4 of st Ives 5 beaches with 5th portMinster being a twenty minute walk were you can catch the train on a short trip to Penzance. St Ives has everything you need without having to venture far from lively bars restaurants to winding streets full of quaint shops and bakeries selling the most delicious cakes and pasties. The views around st Ives are breathtaking especially the beaches and the surfing is must even for beginners. It was our 1st time to st Ives and we are already planning our return. Thank-you sarah
Thank you so much for your kind review - I look forward to welcoming you again soon.
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.
