Overview

About the property

Trewartha Cottage in St Ives, Cornwall, England - Sleeps 4 people, ideal location just steps from the town centre and beaches

Trewartha is perfect for a family holiday or a break away for couples, and well behaved dogs are welcome to stay too so they can also enjoy the fantastic walks on the beaches and the coastal paths (and being with you of course!). Most of the attractions in St.Ives such as the harbour, Tate Gallery and the beaches are just a few minutes walk. The kitchen is well equipped for your comfort, although there are so many wonderful restaurants, cafes and pubs in St.Ives you probably won't want to cook. The cottage has 2 bedrooms (1 double,1 twin) each with its own washbasin.

About Sarah Bennett

I used to visit my grandmother in St Ives when I was young, and now I have my own house here! I am married with 4 children and we all love spending time in St.Ives

Sarah Bennett purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Sarah Bennett chose Saint Ives

St Ives is a magical place and so beautiful. I'm not very keen on the seagulls trying to steal my ice-creams but on sunny days I do love to sit on the rocks near the cottage watching out for the porpoises, dolphins and seals that sometimes pass by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed here with some gal pals for a relaxing holiday last summer and I'm hoping to stay at this great, traditional cottage again this year. The location is just perfect and the cottage is roomy enough for four and lovely and bright and airy. I was a bit concerned about previous guests having pets because I can be a bit allergic - however, the cottage was clean and smelled fresh and not at all 'doggy'!! St Ives is a wonderful, magical place - and there's little can beat a quiet drink outside The Sloop before dining at one of the many very local restaurants (I particularly like the Mermaid and Blas Burger).

Location

Coast/Beach:

There are several beautiful sandy beaches within walking distance of the house. The nearest ones are less than a minute's walk. At Porthwidden and the Harbour beach you can sometimes see seals and dolphins close to the shore. Porthmeor Beach is famous for its excellent surfing and is about 3 minutes walk from the house. Bamaluz Beach is also just round the corner and is the only St Ives beach that allows dogs all year round

Travel:

It is not essential to have a car in St Ives as there is so much to do locally. There is also an excellent train service running from the top of town, just 15 minutes walk from the cottage, and regular coach trips to a variety of landmarks in the surrounding area. If you bring a car there is parking just 100 yards away in the Island Car Park. The nearest airport is Newquay, which is about 50 minutes drive from St.Ives

Distances:

Although there are numerous things to see and do in St Ives itself, there are also many attractions within an hour's drive of the cottage. These include the Eden Project, St.Michael's Mount, the Minack Theatre (built into the cliffs), Lands End, Paradise Park (always a favourite of mine!) and The Seal Sanctuary.

Nicely set up old fisherman's cottage near the middle of St. Ives - very clean

  • 5 of 5

Visiting Cornwall in December is a great time to go. No crowds.... But be ready for a bit of wind and rain. And sunshine too. You'll get it all! Lots of places still open in December to eat and shop. The locals say that parking is a bit of an issue at peak times. But that's the only down side. We really enjoyed our stay.

Trewartha

  • 3 of 5

We found the cottage to be very convenient for both the town and dog walking on the island. It was well equipped and clean and serviceable.

We were less happy with the size and comfort of the double bed. We have never slept on 4ft 6in beds and as my husband is rather large such a small bed is most uncomfortable for us, especially one that was only a mattress on a solid bed frame, not a sprung base. Knowing this we were pleased that a choice of beds was available and I was quite happy to move to one of the single beds however there was no bedding for these two beds which we thought was rather strange. Next time we visit St ives we will look for a property that can assure us of a larger, more comfortable king size or bigger bed with a bathroom on the same floor.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and your positive comments. I am disappointed that you did not mention you wanted to use one of the other beds until now, as there is always spare clean bed linen in the cupboard in case a guest requires it for any reason, so that would have been very easy to resolve at the start of your holiday if you had just told me. We only make up the beds for the number of guests staying as it reduces washing, which helps the environment, but it also means I know fresh linen is put on the beds for each guest on the day of their arrival. I do appreciate your feedback though about standard double beds. I know many cottages in St.Ives don't have enough room for a king size bed but Trewartha has very spacious bedrooms, so I will definitely look into changing the bed to help ensure my guests have a great stay. Best regards Sarah

fantastic property In an ideal location to explore beautiful st ives

  • 5 of 5

The cottage exceeded all are expectations in every way. The cottage itself had everything we needed especially the very comfy bed.it was a 4 minute walk to 4 of st Ives 5 beaches with 5th portMinster being a twenty minute walk were you can catch the train on a short trip to Penzance. St Ives has everything you need without having to venture far from lively bars restaurants to winding streets full of quaint shops and bakeries selling the most delicious cakes and pasties. The views around st Ives are breathtaking especially the beaches and the surfing is must even for beginners. It was our 1st time to st Ives and we are already planning our return. Thank-you sarah

Cosy cottage in a perfect location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in St Ives. The cottage is well appointed for access to the little beach of Porth Gwidden and Porthmeor. The cottage is well equipped and good for a little family. We were very lucky getting parked in the Island car park just around the corner. We loved the surf school and would recommend!

Great location and owner

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Trewartha! The cottage has everything you need, and the location is amazing - just minutes from the best beaches. Unfortunately, due to work commitments, we had to cut our time there short, but the owner, Sarah, was fantastic. She went out of her way to find another guest for the time we couldn't stay, and really helped us out! Overall, a fantastic experience and couldn't recommend highly enough.
