Quintessential Fisherman’s Cottage
Something super-special, this quintessential fisherman’s cottage is right in the heart of St Ives. Sleeping four, it beautifully blends traditional and new, with original character features complemented by contemporary touches.
Life here is so much easier than it was for the fishermen of old, but here you feel a glimpse of the past.
Designed in an open-plan style, the lounge has a feature stone fireplace, with modern equipment for your enjoyment.
Pristine white décor with nautical touches means the kitchen-diner adjacent to the lounge is fully modern, but with a traditional touch. Only moments from the harbour, the cottage is ideally situated for life in vibrant St Ives.
On the first floor is a comfortable double bedroom with walk in wardrobe, neutrally decorated for maximum R & R. Next to it is the family bathroom with bath and overhead shower. On the second floor is another double with ensuite shower room, and a single room, too, so you have plenty of sleeping space.
Centrally located, you are in the heart of heavenly St Ives here, with the bonus of a coveted parking space, a must for high season.

Families and couples will enjoy relaxing on the sand or playing in the water. St Ives Surf School offers sessions for surfing, kayaking, paddleboarding and coasteering. All great fun!
