The Experience

Warm, cosy, and tucked away in a corner of St Ives – a dreamy bolthole for two. At the bottom of a narrow curved cobbled (mostly pedestrian) street, made of lovely chunky granite with fresh white windows, this tiny one-up one-down is in the hub of town, strolling distance from absolutely everything. The friendly owners who live close by could not have renovated it more beautifully. You walk into a rustic-chic sitting room with a super-comfy sofa and hand-painted furniture, white walls, white beams, a rug on a limestone floor, a wood-burner in the original stone fireplace, and an immaculate kitchen to the side in Farrow & Ball whites and greys. Then it’s up narrow stairs to delicious bed: sturdy wood shelves for bedside tables, a wardrobe set into the stairwell (brilliant), a white window seat beneath a Roman blind, local art on the walls and a sumptuous bedhead. No stinting on the bathroom: it has a bath AND a waterfall shower! Cornish cream tea awaits (the owners run a restaurant), there are DVDs, books and games for romantic nights in, and your own parking space a five-minute walk.

This is a gem of a place from which to enjoy St Ives. It’s a short walk to the harbour, beaches and all the shops. It is so comfy as well as luxurious and very carefully appointed snd sympathetically decorated. There’s a log burner snd plenty of space for storing your foods and clothes. Bed is heavenly. I really can’t think of anything I’d change! It’s also only 3 steps away from Barbara Hepworth museum and there’s a free parking space too which is gold in St Ives

We had an amazing trip to St Ives and loved our stay at the cottage. The cottage was perfect, super clean and in an amazing location. We will definitely visit again and have already recommended to friends/family!

Local points of interest from Ylenia Haase

  • Cornish Cottage is a beautiful 17th century town centre stone cottage tucked away in a quiet cobbled street. It has the comforts of a luxury boutique hotel with the freedom to do as you please! It is reputed to be the oldest and smallest house in St Ives.
  • There's a light and airy en suite bedroom with a super comfy double bed with luxurious 800 thread count Egyptian cotton bedding, an overstuffed feather padded window seat perfect for watching the world go by or spying on the seagulls over the rooftops.
  • The en suite bathroom has a full sized bath with rain forest shower. Heated towel rail, natural limestone tiles and a window seat. There are complimentary triple milled Savon de Marseille soaps provided.
  • Close the shutters and snuggle up in front of the aga wood burning stove on a wintery night or open the stable door onto the cobbled street to take in the summer breeze.
  • There is a small library of classic novels and Cornish tales for our guests to read during their stay. We live and work just around the corner from the cottage so we're always on hand if you need us....
  • Cosy dressing gowns and slippers are provided.
