This grade 2 listed traditional miners cottage is situated in the tin-mining quarter known as Upalong in ST Ives. It has been fully refurbished to modern standards whilst retaining its historical past. The sleeping arrangements are flexible and suitable for couples and families, using a king size bed and a single adult size bed in the single bedroom and a double sofa-bed situated in the living room downstairs.

About Geri or Rob

(Geri and Robert) we have been using this property for a number of years and when we had the chance to purchase this we jumped at the chance. We are keen to see that everyone is catered for including well behaved pets. I am a keen sea angler and regularly go out in my kayak to fish in and around the harbour. We love walking and enjoying those sea views and no matter what time of year there is always something to catch your breath. Whether it's golden sands at carbis and hayle in the summer or crashing swells into the rocks off porthminster. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we do and hope to make your holiday as good as our own. All the best.

It seemed as if you were staying in a friend's house! A very organised, thoughtful friend who had stocked the cottage with everything we could need.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much - it’s the kind of statement that we are aiming for. I couldn’t have asked for better. The cottage needs to feel as if it’s your own place with everything there. Nothing is there for show but everything has its use and the cottage should feel pleasing and relaxing always. Thank you again for your lovely comments and stay in touch. Sincere thanks Rob and Geri

Lovely cottage. Great location, nice easy walk to the town & beach.

  • 4 of 5

Well equipped cottage. Ideal for a couple and child. Handy having the garage to park in although you wouldn’t get anything bigger than a hatchback in as very small. Would definitely come back again.

Our holiday in St Ives was lovely. We were very close to the town.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was very comfortable and cosy, so close to the town we didn't use our car at all during the week we were there.

A lovely well presented and equipped cottage a short walk from Fore St. Garaging also included.

Spent a very pleasant week exploring the eateries and shops of St. Ives and enjoyed a boat trip to Seal Island. The cottage proved to be a very cosy base for ourselves and our English Bulldog Lenny, who even managed to fit in a pedicure and shampoo with a local dog groomer. Would have no hesitation in re-booking or recommending Trestenor cottage to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. Glad that Lenny managed a bit of pooch pampering, and that he is always welcome, and of course yourselves. Hope to see you again soon. Kindest regards Rob,Geri, and Alfi
