Stylishly renovated cottage tucked away In a quiet street close to the town, beach, shops and restaurants

A light and airy cottage that still manages to be the perfect cosy hideaway. With central heating, old school radiators and a feature log burning gas stove the cottage is equally suitable for winter bookings as it is for the summer.

Seawater is stylishly furnished and extensively equipped with all you need for a perfect break. The cottage has undergone extensive renovations and boasts some impressive contemporary touches whilst retaining many original features.

It has its own enclosed courtyard garden to the rear that has a Mediterranean feel with decking, seating and outdoor lighting.

Car parking space reserved in the train station car park, 7-8 minutes walk away - you can offload your car right outside the cottage before parking.

About Alan

We have loved St Ives ever since holidaying here many years ago. After living/working in Birmingham and then London, we eventually managed to fulfil our dream and make the move to Cornwall. We now live in St Ives, and absolutely love it! Alan and Sharon

Alan purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Alan chose Saint Ives

St Ives is the perfect location for a relaxing holiday... great beaches, restaurants & surf, and plenty of fresh air!

Come see for yourself why we chose this as a place to live!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Loved it. Loved it. Loved it. Property was great. Well equipped. Comfy and in a great place, only 5 minutes walk to the harbour, shops and restaurants. Would highly recommend it. Having the parking space was a real bonus.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We really like Seawater, having stayed here twice now. In fact in all the years we have been visiting St. Ives we haven't found anywhere quite as nice to stay. It's in a great location within walking distance to all of the attractions in St.Ives. So easy to park the car and forget about it for the time we were there. Inside we enjoyed the downstairs kitchen for family time, whilst the Wifi and NowTV provided the entertainment for our teenage children on rainy days.

All in all Seawater has everything you need to enjoy a break in St Ives and we hope to return again soon.
