This wonderful Grade II listed cottage certainly has a history to it.
Teetotal Street was so named because John Wesley’s Methodist movement was so strong in Cornwall, the locals taking their religion very seriously in the 1800 -1900s.
Abstinence was a key tenet of the faith. The Temperance Movement was strong here because the town had (it is rumoured) around twenty pubs crammed into the town’s harbour area. Now it is a charming, much-sought after area.
Light, bright and decorated in a contemporary coastal style, this two-bedroomed traditional fisherman’s cottage in a wonderful location sleeps four and provides all you need for a perfect stay in St Ives.
Décor is light and bright with a nautical vibe. Comfy beds and settee make it ideal for a couple or small family, a perfect place to relax after a day on one of the many glorious St Ives beaches.
Modernised, this terraced cottage has fabulous sea views across the rooftops from the master bedroom, and is surrounded by no less than four sandy beaches within easy walking distance.
Set in the heart of the now historic fisherman’s area of St Ives, Downalong is the oldest area of St Ives, with its labyrinthine cobbled streets leading to the harbour and the beaches.
Bamaluz Beach is moments away, at the end of the street. With crystal clear water, it is a secret beach only visible at low tide.
Nearby is the popular Porthmeor Bech, renowned for surfing with consistent high-quality waves. Overlooked by the glorious Tate St Ives, the beach is relatively sheltered, too.
St Ives is located in western Cornwall. There is plenty to do in St Ives and it is a fantastic location if you plan on exploring a little further afield too.
One of St Ives most well-known attractions is the Tate St Ives, which is one of only four Tate galleries in the UK and is a haven for lovers of modern art. Artists praise St Ives for its beautiful light and it has inspired many pieces.
