Overview

About the property

Edge of the village 2 miles from St Ives in a quiet location

Hillview is a traditional Cornish cottage in the small village of Halsetown, just 5 minutes by car from St Ives which is renowned for its beautiful beaches and lively Summer atmosphere. The cottage can be found at the top of the village, well away from traffic and has a child-friendly garden where you can relax after days spent visiting one of the nearby beaches. The cottage is also conveniently located for day trips to the many West Cornwall attractions. Hillview offers roomy, relaxed accommodation and the opportunity to appreciate fine views of the countryside and some impressive sunsets.

Upstairs the cottage has 3 bedrooms (one double, one twin and a small third bedroom) plus the bathroom. These are set above an open plan dining/lounge area, complete with a woodburning stove and original beams. The well equipped kitchen connects to the conservatory and then out into the garden where there's a barbeque and picnic table. There is parking space for one vehicle by the cottage.

Hillview is within safe walking distance of St Ives by public footpath (~30mins), down through the fields and small lanes. In the Summer frequent bus services run to and from St Ives from a bus stop in the village. The Halsetown Inn offers good food.

We absolutely loved our stay at Hillview cottage a perfect home away from home. 5 stars

  • 5 of 5

Mum, Dad and 3 daughters arrived from London on the night of storm Brian and we were very grateful for the wood and kindling left by our generous hosts. Hillview cottage is cosy and spacious everything you need is here. We arrived to lovely welcome pack containing scrumptious Cornish goodies, and the cottage has lots of information on the surrounding areas, we loved reading about the history of Hillview. The view from the cottage is simply wonderful.

On our first night we had pre booked a table at The Halestown Inn (5 minute walk from cottage), the food is really good here and they have a very good vegan option.

4 miles away is Zennor, we did the moderate circular route which we found in the book of walks in the cottage. (see everything you need is here) The Walk has stunning views and the scenery was simply breathtaking. On our return we stopped in The Tinners Arms, a lovely pub with great food (there is a vegan option) and a huge open fire. We received a lovely warm welcome. They also have a folk night on Thursday's which is very good.

Everywhere is close by. We visited St Michael's Mount, Marazion, Mousehole, Landsend, St Just, Porthcurno, Penzance, Porthleven, Carbis Bay and of course the beautiful St Ive's. There is a great path that takes you right into the top of St Ives and takes about 40 minutes to walk from the cottage. If you only have time for one museum/gallery we would highly recommend The Barbara Hepworth museum, what a life! Porthmeor beach Café has delicious food with a lovely view of the beach. (good vegan option)

Ian and Angela have created a delightful space which is decorated to a high standard, we loved staying here and all of the little touches were greatly appreciated. Don't hesitate press the book button!

Thank you for everything.

Great Cornish cottage with history

  • 5 of 5

We were partly here for a family wedding as well as a holiday. Weather not brilliant but this is Cornwall and it isn't always sunny here. Some great days out on beaches of St Ives , Carbis Bay and Praa Sands. Coasteering was great and very cold. We discovered that you can park at St Ives Rugby Club for £5 and the catch a bus into town. Really useful in a busy place.

We had a great holiday and Ian and Angela left a lovely welcome pack.Thank you we'll certainly try and come again.

Beautiful cottage in the perfect location to explore the Land's End Peninsula, 5 out of 5 for sure!!

  • 5 of 5

Ian and Angela couldn't have done more to ensure we had a brilliant holiday. The welcome Cornish offerings, beautifully presented Cottage and excellent communication and helpfulness all ensured we had a great time. The Cottage itself was extremely clean and full of character. The views were far reaching and once we'd realised the parking space was on the road behind the property and not on the grassy path in front (thanks SatNav!), we soon settled into our holiday and were able to completely relax well away from work. St Ives is lovely, particularly around the harbour early evening. The best beaches we found were Porthcurno, Porthgwarra (perfect) and Kynance. We took our 5 year old son to the Minack Theatre twice as it was incredible, he loved it and we can't recommend it highly enough. St Michael's Mount and exploring the Lizard Peninsula were other highlights, as were our walks along the SW Coast path, particularly around Land's End. Happy days and great memories! Thanks so much to Ian and Angela.

peaceful location great views cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

we had a great 4 days here and loved the cottage which was well equipped. Enjoyed new years eve in St Ives and Christmas lights at Mousehole. We arrived to find a selection of local goodies , eggs, coffee, tea, biscuits, cake which was a lovely touch. The owner was nearby and very helpful. The cottage is outside St Ives which made it quicker to travel around the rest of Cornwall without town traffic. We also enjoyed walking down into the town across the fields and lanes a good antedote to the pasties and lovely local food.

Beautiful cottage,peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hillview for a week and loved it :-))

The cottage is situated in a peaceful location with beautiful views of the countryside.

Ian and Angela left a basket of local goodies,milk and butter for us on arrival.A lovely gesture which was very much appreciated.

There is a good selection of books,games,DVDs etc in the cottage.

Local tourist attraction publicity and maps are provided.

We found plenty to occupy us in the surrounding area,a week is simply not long enough to fit it all in,so therefore we will need to return again!!!!!!!

In our opinion Ian and Angela have tried very hard to create a beautiful,welcoming,cosy cottage for guests to enjoy.

I would recommend Hillview and fully intend to return in the future. :-)))

Perfect location for visiting attractions in south west Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully appointed cottage on the outskirts of St. Ives perfectly located in a small, quiet village with easy route to A30. Access to the cottage suits more able-bodied guests as there are a number of steps from the roadside parking space, it is well equipped and the wood burning stove (with plenty of chopped wood supplied) makes it a cosy home-from-home. The cottage has one toilet situated in the bathroom - not a deal breaker for a family of four but something to consider if some guests like to take long, relaxing baths. The owners provided great information about the local area and were easily contacted for enquiries.
