Overview

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.

Gordon and Jo purchased this cottage in 2015

Comfortable, well equipped, great location and secure parking very close by - highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

We’ve had a fabulous week at Betty’s cottage. The cottage is comfortably furnished and equipped, the internet fast and reliable and the car parking closer than we expected. Fabulous location too, easy walk into St Ives with shops very close by for provisions and a good selection of bars/restaurants/galleries etc even in January. Good communication from the owners before and during our stay - a housekeeping issue was sorted swiftly and without fuss. If there was availability when we want it, we would be booking another stay right now but alas there isn’t! Highly recommended!

Lovely stay & very convenient for walking & close secure parking.

  • 4 of 5

The reason I haven’t given 5 stars is because the cottage smelt musty when we arrived, but of course we don’t know how long it had been shut up before our stay & also the towels & bed linen hadn’t been dried completely before they were folded because again they smelt musty.

We would stay again for the location & the very close secure parking.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say that I haven't already said. This is my third visit to St Ives, such a magical place that draws you back time and time again. This is also my third visit to lovely Betty's Cottage...it almost feels like a second home now. Such a relaxing environment, central to the town and beaches. The secure parking is such a bonus...and meant that this year I was able to discover more of lovely Cornwall by car. If you don't drive or want to leave the car behind Betty's is also just a 10 mins walk from the train station. Have used the train each time I have visited, a lovely journey from St Ives to St Erth...and have visited Penzance, Mousehole and this year Falmouth. I cannot recommend St Ives and Betty's enough....just the perfect break away.

Charming cottage, great location.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cottage, with all the mod-cons. A short walk to the beach, shops and restaurants. We were very grateful of the undercover car park space.

Great family cottage

  • 5 of 5

Will keep this short. One of the best choices we’ve made, and we have stayed in a lot of places. Location, amenities, contact and information, value - all perfect. A great cottage in the heart of St Ives. 5 stars without question.
