Overview

About the property

Morning Cottage in St Ives, Cornwall, England - Sleeps 6 People, Ideal Location Just Steps From The Town Centre And Beaches

Morning Cottage is perfect for a family holiday. It is close to all the many attractions of St Ives including the beautiful beaches and town, but in a peaceful location. 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 3 bedrooms (2 twin and 1 double) and sleeps 6. It has a very large living room with comfy seating, TV and electric piano. There is a bathroom with bath and overhead shower as well as a separate cloakroom and also a warm shower outside for washing off the sand after trips to the sea. For the less energetic it is great to sit with a glass of wine on the patio overlooking the sea. The top bedroom has a large window facing the sea and a rocking chair - an ideal place to sit and watch out for dolphins passing by.

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 2009

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.

Map

Car: not necessary

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.

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. 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.

Wonderful escape to the seaside

  • 5 of 5

We came for a girls holiday and a getaway from the city. Morning Cottage was lovely, very homely and with all facilities we needed. The views from the attic room and kitchen were breathtaking. It was fantastic being only a couple of minutes walk from the beach, we were spoilt was mostly amazing weather whilst we were in St Ives and so we spent a lot of time there! The St Ives festival was on so we had a lot of fun seeing musicians and art instillations over the week. On a raining day we went and painted pots, which we loved and got very into! The food in the area was amazing, endless treats of pasties, fish and chips, pub dinners and bakery goods! We had a wonderful time and will definitely be returning to Morning Cottage and St Ives!

Thanks for sharing your lovely cottage, it was perfect for my family and i, the view from the loft is stunning. It's cosy and has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. The parking is great and the garden is great for a barby and to relax, I would definitely stay again.

Fantastic week in St Ives

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the property before and knew what to expect. The owner is always very helpful and easy to contact.

For each stay the cottage has been very clean and well presented. The kitchen is well stocked, with everything we needed for home catering.

We particularly love the 2 parking spaces, outdoor shower and wet suit racks, not to mention the location and views of Porthgwidden Beach. We body boarded every day so welcomed the hot outdoor shower and places to put our suits/ hang our costumes outside. We will definitely be back and thoroughly recommend the property.

Thank you :-)

Homely but Modernised in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Morning Cottage in St. Ives in February. Off-season in St. Ives is the best time to visit as the streets and beaches are quiet and you can enjoy the beauty of Cornwall free from the jostling crowds of summer.

The cottage is in a superb location and has that particularly valuable asset for St. Ives of its own private parking. The views from the top floor are stunning in both directions, and at night it is a delight to look out over the lights of the town bay.

The owner has produced a mix of a fully modernised kitchen with a comfortable, homely feel in the main house. Unlike many other properties in St. Ives, Morning Cottage truly is fabulous for a winter holiday.

We have stayed at this property for many years and always had a fantastic experience (its why we keep coming back!) Its very charming and offers a lot of space inside which is very rare in St.Ives. The garden is lovely and is nice to sit in and admire the amazing view. Communication with the owner has always been prompt and helpful. It is in a great location for all of St Ives beaches and town !!! A must stay !!!
