Overview

About the property

3 - 4 Night Short Breaks in low season - see website www.sailingbystives.com

Originally a pair of miners’ cottages circa 1800 since its early beginnings Cuckoo Rock House has now been extended substantially to form this beautiful granite house, steeped in charm and character, retaining many original features.

The house provides spacious accommodation for six people. Sitting perfectly in its own grounds, high on the hill tops above St Ives, with the most amazing views over the unspoiled surrounding countryside and glorious sea views across to Mounts Bay, St Michael's Mount and beyond.

Set well away from the road with its own long driveway, this cottage provides perfect tranquillity, yet is less than a five minute drive from St Ives (1.9 miles), with its beautiful beaches, awarding winning restaurants and boutique shops.

It is also well placed for so many other famous destinations nearby, such as Sennen Cove, Zennor, Gurnards Head and the Minnack Theater to name but a few.

Accommodation:

Entrance Porch – Leading onto the spacious kitchen with oil fired AGA and farmhouse table to seat six.

The views form the kitchen are breath-taking, the Frank’s Shaft engine house (Giew Mine) stands proud in the view.

The kitchen - Off the kitchen is a utility room with electric cooker and hob, washing machine and small Belfast sink. There is also a newly installed shower room: Perfect for returning after a day walking or on the beach.

The kitchen also leads into the large living room with beamed ceiling and large granite fireplaces at each end of the room, with wood burner in set which provide an ambiance for summer or winter.

Off the living room is the conservatory, perfect for the morning coffee or that glass of wine in the evening, a tranquil room with lots of light, looking onto the gardens.

Throughout the cottage each window offers its own special view, each one different.

From the living room the stairs lead to the upper landing with 2 double bedrooms and one twin bedroom and large family bathroom, comprising bath, large contemporary shower, WC sink unit and airing cupboard.

Immediately surrounding the house are enclosed private gardens; with pergola and table, ideal for barbecues. Although the grounds extend to almost an acre in all, with random granite stones and shrubs.

About Mike Corbett

Owners Mike and Dyane Corbett have taken every care to ensure that the accommodation provided will be a perfect base for your self catering holiday in and around St. Ives.

All of our St. Ives cottages have their own individual charm and character and are located in the heart of the old Fisherman’s quarters in a quaint cobbled street called the Digey / Salubrious Terrace, as well as Cuckoo Cottage House located just 2 miles from St.Ives.

The cottages have been tastefully renovated to retain many of their original features, offering truly characterful self catering accommodation with a contemporary feel.

Any two cottages can work well as a pair, to provide accommodation for friends and family who wish to holiday as a party but have their own individual accommodation. All the cottages are only a few paces apart making this an ideal option.

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Super cottage with lots of outside space. Lovely and clean with good facilities for a group of 6 adults. Good contact from the owner and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend especially as it is outside St Ives away from the crowds.

Would also recommend booking the car parking space in town where parking can be a real issue unless you use the car parks on the edge of town and walk down to the town. Trouble is you have to walk up a steep hill back!

Locally recommend the Sea Food Cafe but you have to book. Also Olives Cafe for fantastic cakes and scones all made on the premises.

The drive south on the coast road takes you through small villages and cliffs south towards St Just and Sennen Cove. Stopped off in Zennor for a cliff walk and Batallack to visit the Cornish Mine and National Trust Centre.
