About the property

2 bedroom cottage sleeps up to 6, close to the harbour and beautiful beaches.

Betty's is a beautifully presented Cornish cottage built in the mid 1800s.

Our newly renovated cottage is well equipped and furnished with much thought for your comfort and relaxation. The 2 bedrooms are furnished with a kingsize bed in the master bedroom and 2 single beds in bedroom 2, cleverly arranged to maximize the space, that along with a double sofa bed in the lounge provide flexible sleeping arrangements.

We hope to inspire a restful ambiance from where you can unwind. It is a perfect place for small families and couples alike.

Wander from your door to the harbour front with its plethora of artisan cafes and shops. You can enjoy the luxury and convenience of the location, as you are a 5 minute stroll to the harbour and just a short distance away from the stunning and child friendly Porthminster beach, Porthmeor and Porthgwidden beach along with the Tate Gallery which are all within easy walking distance.

Betty's Cottage is the ideal holiday retreat from where to discover the wonderful St Ives and beyond for your Cornish adventure.

We have secure parking within a parking compound just a minutes walk away on from the cottage.

About Gordon and Jo

We are the proud owners of Betty's Cottage. After many happy family holidays in St Ives, we fell in love with the area. It captured our hearts and soul. We bought the cottage early 2015 and have since lovingly refurbished it to provide you with all the comforts you would need for a home away from home.

As a small family we enjoy skimming stones and building sandcastles at Porthminster beach, body boarding at Porthmeor beach, fishing,crabbing and seal spotting in the harbour.

We always feel very happy here and invite you to share in our affection for St Ives.

We hope that we have thought of everything to make your stay as perfect as possible.

Beautiful Betty's . . . A Home from Home in St Ives

  • 5 of 5

Bettys cottage is a beautiful self catering let in St ives. This was our first stay in self catering and it was a delight. Bettys was so cosy and instantly homely. The decor was so tasteful and modern mixed with the seaside feel you want when you are away in a place like St ives. Everything you would need for a couple or even a family. So close to the town centre and food stores. Bettys was equipped with all that you needed for a getaway and more incl board games, games consoles. I loved the quirky ornaments in the cottage so much i hunted them down in st ives and brought a couple simular for myself to always remember our stay. I would recommend this cottage highly it was clean also which is a must for me although there was a tiny bit of attention to detail needed within the cleaning aspects. My only let down was parking with this property. I new ahead of staying there was no parking providing but it was a huge pain especially if you left to go out for the day or were willing to pay for a permit or parking fees. I understand this cannot be helped and it wont stop us returning! We loved our stay and hope to come back to bettys cottage again soon.

Great house in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my husband and 6 month year old son this week. Cottage in a brilliant location close enough to town and the beaches ( just a five min walk away ) but still completely accessible, being able to park outside and unload the car was great. Cottage itself is beautiful, we had a fantastic week and look forward to staying again.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We are a Canadian family of 5 enjoying a 'gap year' of extended travel. We stayed in beautiful Betty's Cottage for a week of pure rest, relaxation and to recharge. It was perfect in every way. Gordon and Jo were lovely, thoughtful and responsive hosts. The cottage is lovingly furnished with everything our little family could want or need. It was a treat to cook dinners in a well equipped kitchen with modern appliances. We had a few days of spotty weather and the children were overjoyed with the xBox. I loved the comfortable beds with clean, crisp linens and the delightful soaker tub. The entire cottage was shiny and sparkling upon arrival and we were treated to a lovely welcome package. Both my husband and I celebrated birthdays during our week at Betty's and it was very memorable indeed. The location is also fantastic...just a few moments to the beaches and harbour and quiet at night. The friendly next door neighbour, Doug, was also a wealth of tips and handy information. We loved it so much that we'd have stayed on an extra week had it not been booked...While coming and going, more than a few people stopped to inquire about our stay and I was able to heartily recommend Betty's Cottage and St. Ives. What a stunning spot.
