Stunning Cottage In The Heart Of St Ives, The Best Location, Sea Views, WiFi.

Overview

Property

Updated: 03-Dec-2016
House in St Ives, Cornwall, England - Quiet And Quaint Location Just Off Most Photograhed Street. Beaches, Harbour Are A Stroll Away

The cottage is a classic and sympathetic conversion of a former fisherman's cottage. Warm and inviting with beamed ceilings and fireplaces. It is set over 4 floors, so is spacious, and there is room for everyone to find their own space. The cottage is located on a quiet cobbled street, away from the main shopping areas but close enough to nip out for something like, a bottle of wine, or a cake for tea! The harbour front is a two minute walk and the 5 amazing beaches are all very close by, as are the Tate Gallery, shops, Barbara Hepworth Museum, award winning restaurants and the coastal path. Well behaved dogs are allowed, a maximum of 2 at an extra charge. The cottage has central heating and sealed unit heritage sash windows, so perfect for winter lets. There are sea views from two of the bedrooms. St Ives has a special quality of light that has been attracting artists for decades, it has a Mediterranean feel and has won many accolades for its scenic beauty, and has been named as one of the seven most beautiful bays in the world. One week is not enough!

FREE WIFI INSTALLED FROM LATE NOVEMBER 2015

Beautiful holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We are just home from staying in this very central holiday home in the heart of St Ives. Close to the harbour, High Street and all the local beaches. The home itself is a spacious 4 storey house and fitted out with everything you need for a comfortable stay ! The owner is very helpful and offers advice about parking and tips on the house. We had a lovely stay and hope to return one day !

Charming

  • 5 of 5

Salmons Leap was a pleasure to stay in. The cottage is utterly charming and had everything catered for. Very convenient to beaches and shops but down a nice quiet street. Parking is a common problem but we booked in to St Ives secure car park which is a 5 minute taxi ride away. We recommend the Alba and Rahjoot restaurants. We would definitely book again and recommend this cottage. Please be warned tho the seagulls do not sleep at night and are extremely noisy so keep your windows shut!!

Definitely recommend

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many properties in St Ives over the years, but have to say the standard that this house is furnished to is the best. Lovely comfortable beds with soft, good quality linen. Everything you could ask for in terms of kitchen equipment, decorated to a very high standard. Clearly a very loved home which we thoroughly enjoyed staying in. The location was perfect, quiet but seconds from the main shopping street and beaches.

Beautiful cottage and location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely old quirky cottage in centre of St Ives, very clean and comfortable set over 4 floors, very well maintained and has all you need. Service from owners throughout has been excellent from initial enquiry through to the end of our stay.

Loved the location, 2 mins from harbour beaches and shops and St Ives over the new year period was amazing.

Would highly recommend.

Location

From the Owner

I first fell in love with St Ives when my children were very small, now they are all grown up with their own families. I brought the young teenage children down on a camping trip, and ended up viewing properties while they were off amusing themselves on the beaches. I was shown Salmons Leap and new I had to have it, even though it was a bit 'tired'! Over the years i have refurbished it and lavished much love and attention on it, making it a home for us, and hopefully, a home from home for visitors. I have had families returning year on year, and some younger children have even grown up spending their summer vacation at the cottage! It has the best location right in the centre of town, close to everything, and is safe for children being on a traffic free cobbled street... and those views!

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

The beaches and harbour are all minutes away, as is access to the coastal path.

Travel:

Newquay is the nearest regional airport. there is a train station in St Ives, and is one of the best ways to arrive, the last leg of the journey from St Erth to st Ives is very scenic. A car is not essential.

Facilities

From the Owner

The cottage is right in the heart of the town but set back slightly, on a quieter cobbled street, so you don't get the noise, only the convenience of being so close to the shops, harbour, beaches and restaurants, no steep hills to climb, common in St Ives, so you can nip out for that early morning breakfast, the paper, or a cake for tea. The only danger you may face is being photographed on one of the prettiest streets in St Ives! Older children are safe doing their own thing, and the younger ones can even join in the toddler groups and children's activities in the Methodist Chapel opposite, now used as a Sunday school and hall. Salmons Leap has been a popular holiday retreat since 1997 for both us and visitors.
