House in St. Ives, Cornwall, England - Central But Quiet Romantic Town Centre Boutique Cottage,2 Minutes Level Stroll From Harbour &Beaches
A beautiful town centre 17th century stone cottage tucked away in a quiet cobbled street. Lovingly restored and completely refurbished in 2013 to an exceptionally high standard - the cottage has all the comforts of a bijoux boutique hotel with the freedom to do as you please! Cornish Cottage is a 2 minute level stroll to St Ives harbour, restaurants, cafes, galleries, shops and beaches. Steeped in history and full of original charm and character with wonky walls, a wood burning stove with cornish granite fire surround, granite coins, window seats and exposed beams. Parking space for one car. Underfloor heating and gas central heating. Delicious Cornish Cream Tea or surprise welcome pack awaits guests on arrival! We regret the cottage is not suitable for children. Sorry - no pets allowed.

Small but perfectly formed
The cottage is situated in the perfect spot. Parking is an added bonus. It was very well equipped and the added bonus of a log burner made this a perfect stay.
The cottage was gorgeous - really cosy and furnished beautifully!
We had a lovely long weekend - the cottage was perfectly located so we could leave the car parked up and just potter round town all weekend. The galleries are so lovely, and all the beaches have different things to offer. Our favourite drink spot was the Rum and Crab Shack! Then a short walk back to the cottage for supper and a cosy evening and a good night's sleep in the very comfy bed! The perfect weekend, thank you!
Beautiful cottage but very noisy
My husband and I stayed here for just under a week. It's a beautiful little cottage, well decorated and fully equipped with everything you could ever need.
The location is central to St Ives which is also a bonus. However at the back of the cottage is a pub and early every morning they have a delivery of kegs. The 'clung' of metal at 7am everyday was unbearable. The cottage only has single glazing so every time someone walks by you can hear exactly what they are saying, day or night, and as it on one of the tourist roads this is quite frequent. We were also disturbed by the frequent use of the wheelie bins to the side of the cottage, which again created so much noise during the day through into the night.
Cosy cottage in quiet but central location
The cottage was exactly as described, in fact exceeded our expectations. Immaculately cleaned with a very comfortable bed and a good supply of logs to keep the fire roaring adding to the wonderful atmosphere. The shops and restaurants were just seconds away which meant that we really enjoyed eating out or taking back a Cornish pasty or a delicious fish and chip supper. Parking is important to us and meant we did not move the car throughout our stay as there is so much to do in St Ives. The welcome cream tea was a lovely surprise so thank you Ylenia and Mike for all the little touches that make this cottage a real home from home. Christine and Anthony King
excellently and fashionably presented with great use of limited space
Would gladly recommend this property for a short stay for two. Very convenient location to the hub of St. Ives whilst also staying out of the beaten path. Great decor and use of space with a real sense of comfort and tranquility.
Small but beautiful accomadation in a great location
We loved relaxing in the cottage and exploring St Ives.
Quiet location just off the main street, so ideal to go out for food and drink! We didn't use the car for three days which was lovely.
From the Owner
“Before Cornish Cottage came on the market it was always one of those properties that intrigued me. It was the type of place that every time you walked passed you wished you could take a peek inside. When it came on the market we couldn't wait to view it and we both fell in love with it instantly. It had so much character and was every bit the romantic quintessential cottage. Steeped in history it is reputed to be the smallest and oldest house in St Ives! We renovated and decorated the cottage in a contemporary style - careful to retain all its character features including a working open fireplace.”

From the Owner
“The cottage is a unique property in the very heart of St Ives. It is just two minutes level stroll to the harbour, shops and beaches and one minute to the Barbara Hepworth sculpture garden and Trewyn sub tropical gardens. It has the huge advantage of the use of a parking space for our guests. If you have ever been to St Ives before you will know that this is a huge bonus!”
