Overview

About the property

Apartment in St Ives, Cornwall, England - Renovated Fisherman's Cottage Ideally Situated For A Great Family Or Couple Holiday

Valentine Cottage is a luxurious apartment formed from two storeys of an old fisherman’s cottage in the old ‘down along’ part of St Ives, set among cobbled streets and moments from two fabulous beaches. Finished to a high standard, Valentine Cottage makes an ideal base for a ‘proper’ St Ives holiday in summer or winter (the wood burning stove will keep you very cosy!). With one double and one twin room it works equally well for a family or as a romantic getaway for a couple.

About Matt

Matt & Pippa Rees are the owners of Valentine Cottage. We've been coming to St Ives for years and in fact we got engaged on Porthmeor beach. So it's a special place for us and we love it! We have owned the property for around 5 years and visit as often as we can.

We hope you love both the property and St Ives as much as we do.

Matt purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Matt chose St Ives

We wanted to be in the old part of St Ives which gives us great access to the beaches as well as the town.

You can make a cup of tea in the morning and walk around the corner and drink it while watching the waves - bliss!

The prefect cottage in the perfect location in the heart of St Ives

  • 5 of 5

We’ve just returned from a great 4 days in Valentine cottage.

We’re a family of four who’ve been to St Ives a few times and have found the Downalong area to be the best part of town to get the best out of the town. It’s between the harbour beaches and Porthgwidden, where we regularly go for afternoon drinks or a great breakfast.

The cottage had everything we needed and was really warm and cosy.

The Smeg fridge and Cath kidston mugs were a really nice touch too.

The beds are comfy, the shower warm and there are plenty of comfy sofas to unwind in.

We ate out at The Mex where great Mexican food is served and The Balancing Eel for Fish and chips. We are in at the Eel and took our own alcohol as it’s bring your own.

The kids loved spotting the seal from the beaches and we even spotted Dolphins offshore which was amazing.

We’d happily go back to this cottage and highly recommend it to others.

Lovely character cottage in excellent location

  • 4 of 5

A typical small cottage nicely decorated and well-equipped. It's in a great location for getting to st Ives beaches and pottering around town but parking is a nightmare.

It would benefit from a welcome pack for guests (tea and coffee / biscuits)

Cottage with bags of character in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this well equipped, tastefully furnished cottage. It was in a fantastic location- right by two of the beaches and a stones throw from the harbour. Appreciated the extras that were in the cottage - such as the bath toys that our one year old loved. Would definitely return.

Location

Coast/Beach:

Valentine Cottage is situated less than a minute's walk from two fabulous beaches - Porthemeor (a large beach with great waves - ideal for surfing) and Porthgwidden (a smaller, more sheltered beach ideal for families where mum and dad can have a coffee at the beach cafe while the children play).

Only very slightly further away are 2 other great beaches - the harbour beach and Porthminster beach (home of the famous Porthminster Beach Cafe).

Travel:

Nearest airport - Newquay airport.

Drive from London in 5 hours.

Train - mainline to St Erth and then branch line around the bay to St Ives. Once you're in St Ives you don't need a car unless you want to explore the rest of Cornwall.

Further Details:

The property is within easy access of the town centre where there is a good range of shops. There are loads of great cafes and restaurants in St Ives. And of course St Ives is known the world over for its art - you'll love exploring the back streets and discovering little galleries along, of course, with the Tate gallery on Porthmeor beach.
