Contemporary detached cottage, walking distance from the harbour at St. Ives and the town’s many amenities.

Tucked away in a quiet corner of St Ives, this detached cottage is the perfect bolthole from which to explore this fantastic harbour town. Inside, the property's contemporary and minimalist style blends beautifully with occasional nautical influences throughout to complement its wonderful coastal setting.

Small but perfectly formed, the open-plan accommodation is stylish and modern with a newly-fitted kitchen, inviting lounge area and French doors opening onto a private enclosed courtyard for al fresco dining. Upstairs, the cosy bedrooms feature sloping ceilings with Velux windows and understated coastal decor.

Located on a quiet no-through road, the cottage is less than a mile from the heart of St Ives where you will find a cornucopia of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. This popular harbour town also hosts a vast sandy beach and thriving art scene, home to the Tate, Barbara Hepworth Museum and countless galleries. Further afield, an evening at the spectacular Minack open-air theatre (17 miles) is a must for spring and summer visits.

Lovely basket of food and drink on arrival. The house was beautifully clean and very comfortable. Short walk into town. Would definitely recommend.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time here. It's a bit of a hike into the centre, especially if you've got children and lots of things to take to the beach as we did, so we used the buses from the leisure centre car park just a short walk away. The house was immaculate, really well equipped and our welcome hamper was very well received. Thank you for having Read moreus! Hide

This cottage has everything you need for a self catering holiday. Its very clean & comfortable. There is a very steep driveway, but you can park alongside the double gates. Its a walk into st. Ives, which is ok going, but coming back, is up a steep hill, but, there are plenty of taxis available.

We really enjoyed staying, very comfortable, a lovely place to come home too. The hamper was amazing, have never had anything like it, delicious. We did find walking up the hill at the end of the day hard work, but that was mainly due to our level of fitness!! Thank you for making our holiday wonderful. Miriam, Phil, Joe and Merry Caldwell

We arrived at the property in the evening and were nicely surprised with a basket full of goodies - thank you hRead moreome owners - you really made us feel welcome!

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
