Number Six St Ives - A Stylish Two Bedroomed Cottage In The Heart Of St Ives

Overview

Property

Updated: 24-Nov-2016
Cottage in Central St Ives Cornwall. Quiet, Yet Central Location, Minutes From The Harbour, town centre, And Beaches.

Number Six is a charming and stylish cottage that captures the essence of St.Ives; the white painted sitting-room leads through an open doorway to the kitchen/dining-room, and outside is a little private patio, with enough space to hang out the wetsuits, and maybe have a coffee. Up the cottage stairs are the fresh and light bathroom and two chic bedrooms, the double furnished with a gorgeous contemporary four-poster bed, the second bedroom has twin beds. The house sleeps four people, has full central heating, and BT Infinity broadband and TV. The house is very central, yet quietly situated. The World renowned Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, run by the Tate Gallery, is just down the lane, and we are close to all the local amenities, beaches and attractions. Number Six is an ideal base for a stay in St Ives, and the chance to enjoy a 'car free' holiday. There are amazing beaches, fantastic restaurants, and wonderful scenery all within a couple of minutes walk. All of our guests have enjoyed Number Six, and we have had wonderful feedback from them.

Between Easter and October, we operate a FRIDAY changeover day, with short breaks available between November and Easter

Number six is superb!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a wonderful week in st Ives, staying at the delightful 'Number Six' The cottage was immaculately clean upon our arrival, it has a contemporary feel, with lots of fabulous artwork to admire. It has obviously been lovingly restored. It was lovely and warm as the cleaner had kindly put the heating on, and everything was easy to find, and use, with all of the user manuals, should you need them, neatly filed in a folder. There was also another file with lots of information and recommendations for places to eat in the local and surrounding areas, which we found really useful. The owners were a pleasure to deal with, right through from booking, to leaving the property. All in all, number six is a delightful house in the centre of town, but on a very quiet street with hardly any traffic. It is a couple of minutes walk away from all there is to see and do in this glorious seaside town. We would recommend without hesitation.

First class stay!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Number Six in St Ives already this year (a week in April) and returned for a weekend break in October. It is like a home from home for us and we love returning to this pretty cottage after a day out walking and enjoying the beautiful Cornish coastline.

The cottage is homely, warm and comfortable. The owners, Michael and Juliet, have thought of everything to make your stay relaxing and comfortable including a fully-equipped kitchen, washing machine and beautifully decorated master bedroom.

The cottage is perfectly located: only a stone's throw from Fore Street and yet quiet and peaceful. I am already planning my return to Number Six in 2017!

Excellent

Number six leaves nothing to be desired. Everything you need is right there plus Artworks and atmospheric sea-side and St Ives reflective decor.

Everything you could possibly need, comfortable and stylish.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with our two children, had an amazing time and what made it even better was the fact that after a day on the beach we knew we were going back to a very comfortable and well equipped property.

The artwork adds a quirky touch as its all different but all fits for each room.

The owners are amazing and are always on hand if you need them.

A truly amazing holiday. Thank you.

A real home from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year in St Ives and we've enjoyed every house we've rented, but there something more homely about No.6 than the previous places we've stayed in. From the first day when Michael and Juliet allowed us to drop our bags off early because they were staying in the house themselves, to the text we received from them when we left hoping that we'd had a happy holiday, everything about the house and our hosts was first class. The house is comfortable, clean and well equipped and, so long as you don't mind a short uphill walk, in a great location. We couldn't have been happier and if we return to St. Ives next year we will definitely be staying at No.6 again.

Comfort and an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend in January the cottage was cosy,bright, spotlessly clean and surpassed our expectations. We particularly appreciated the real coffee machine! It is a short stroll down into the town and so convenient for the many restuarants and shops. Being January some of the restuarants were closed but we tried the Porthminster Kitchen and had a great Sunday Roast at the Tinners Arms, Zennor. In the summer St Ives would provide everything you need and as the owners say have a car free holiday. We will definitely return as the cottage is perfect for a Winter or Summer break.

Location

From the Owner

Having owned previous properties close to St Ives, we chose to buy Number Six because of it's location and charm. It is very central, yet quietly located. We love being almost in the centre of town, yet away from the hubub! Number Six is a perfect place to enjoy a car free holiday and enjoy the beaches, the walks, the galleries, and of course, the restaurants.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: In common with the majority of houses in St Ives, there is no private parking. Mount Pleasant is a narrow street, but you can stop outside to load; the nearest car park is Barnoon, which is about 200 yards away. Nearby on street parking is also available if you are lucky! Travel by train and enjoy a car free holiday. We are happy to accept a small dog (£25 charge), and the house is, of course, strictly no smoking. Outside: There is a small private patio, just big enough for to have a coffee and hang out the wetsuits! Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All linen and duvets, including bath towels, hand towels, and tea towels, is provided. Number 6 will be cleaned prior to your arrival and on your departure. A weekly change of linen will be provided for fortnightly guests. Other: The attractive dining room, again with original artwork, leads to the open plan kitchen, and there is a small private patio, where you can have a coffee, and hang the wetsuits out to dry!
