About the property

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

Perfect holiday cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We booked number six for Christmas week and had a lovely welcome with a cream tea waiting for us as well as presents.

The cottage is spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped, it was nice to not to dash out immediately to buy essentials.

We found it very comfortable and homely and a bonus that it’s a few minutes walk to the town centre.

I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone coming to visit St Ives!

A Cornish retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is superbly situated, with a two minute walk into St Ives centre itself. Surprisingly quiet.

The cottage is extremely well stocked. Everything you could need in all rooms especially the kitchen.

Number six is of modern presentation but with St Ives theme running through it.

It was a holiday cottage but homely.

The cream tea on arrival was most welcome after a very long journey.

The added touch of a welcome and goodbye text from the owners was a lovely surprise.

Would highly recommend this beautiful cottage for both its location and warm, welcoming and homely feel.

Utterly gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

No. 6 is a truly contemporary home. The decor and artworks the owners have collected are so beautiful. The 'home' is truly that - not some sterile rental. It's located in a great spot in St. Ives - far enough away from the masses but close enough to everything that is important. Stunning beaches, charming shops and a multitude of art galleries, contemporary restaurants and tempting cafés. A wonderful place to spend time away in.

About Michael and Juliet Freedman

We are now almost retired, live in Somerset and have been visiting St Ives all our lives. We love our cottage here - we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Michael and Juliet Freedman purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Michael and Juliet Freedman chose Saint Ives

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.

What makes this cottage unique

Quiet, yet central, with wonderful feedback from all of our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner
