Brilliant cottage in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from another relaxing holiday in this cottage, from the very beginning it's easy to unload your car, as you can pull up straight outside the front door.

When entering the cottage you are welcomed by flowers and gifts for all the family, including the dogs! The cottage is always spotless and the towels and linen always clean and fresh.

The great thing for us is that this cottage is always so clean and tidy and yet has the added bonus of allowing dogs.

The kitchen area is well equipped with quality appliances in which we cooked a large family meal. The bathroom and shower room have heated towel rails and unlimited hot water. The heating system warms the cottage quickly for when the the temperature drops outside.

The location is great, as it's right in the centre of the fishermen's cottages with the front door opening onto a square and not a main road, making it safer for children. Also it's ideal for all the main attractions of the town and beaches, especially Porthmeor Beach (surfing beach) as you can easily walk to and from the beach in your wet suit with your board, then when returning an outside tap is available to rinse down.

I have recommended this property to friends and family in which resulted them booking.

Alison is very proud of her cottage and wishes everyone a great holiday, she is always willing to help and answer any questions.

Good location

  • 4 of 5

Just a few minutes from a beautiful beach on one side and the harbour on the other, with a cafe opposite and many galleries nearby and a short stroll to many more restaurants and bars yet still very quiet. Very comfortable with everything we needed for a lovely holiday. Welcome Cornish biscuits, flowers and wine were a nice surprise. Hope to return in the near future.

relaxed family holiday

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is in a perfect position so close to the beaches. Made for an easy time with young children to and from the seaside. We were made very welcome and service from owner was fantastic. Booking the car parking space is recommended and made life easy. Great slice of cake opposite! Lovely light airy bedrooms. Great to be able to wash and dry children's clothes which helped on a rainy day. The best thing was location for us. Cottage externally pretty. The only reason for 4 stars is because we have a dog and 3 children and the living space whilst comfortable is one room. Of course we realised that but for a growing family like ours it might not suit us in years to come which is a shame. Comfy beds and good wifi. Well equipped with all we needed to cook. In comparison to other cottages good value. St Ives is the best uk location so far for us.

Special interest holidays:

As well as the many beaches and art galleries in St Ives, 2 Island Square is the perfect base to explore all of what Cornwall has to offer.

There is the Eden Project, perhaps Cornwall’s most internationally famous attraction, where not only can you see what grows in the biomes but they also have many events going on throughout the year from music gigs to circus extravaganzas, there is something for everyone.

Other places worth visiting include the quaint fishing village of Port Isaac – the location of ITV’s Doc Martin, and Porthcurno – home of the Minack Theatre and a beach with the most turquoise sea you will see in Britain.

Coast/Beach:

Our cottage is less than a 5 minute walk to four of St Ives' spectacular Beaches including Porthmeor Beach, Porthgwidden Beach, Barnaluz (dog friendly) Beach and the Harbour Beach.

Further Details:

Our Cottage is perfectly situated in the heart of St Ives’ conservation area of ‘Downalong’, and is a level walk to all that St Ives offers.

Only minutes from both Porthmeor and Porthgwidden beaches, the Harbour and the Tate Gallery.

The Island Car park is a short walk away, as is The Sloop Inn one of Cornwall’s oldest and most famous Inns circa 1312.

If you fancy going further afield from St Ives you are perfectly situated to travel all over Cornwall whether it is to walk the coastal paths, have a day out at the fabulous Eden Project or visit some of the best beaches Europe has to offer and spend your days topping up your tan.
