Traditional Granite Cottage With Sea Views From The Summer House And Bbq Deck



Updated: 18-Sep-2016
Cottage in St Ives, Cornwall, England - Fantastic Location. 1 Mins Walk To Porthminster Beach. 3 Mins Walk To Harbour And Centre

Camellia Cottage is an old fisherman's cottage, less than one minute's walk from Porthminster Beach in one direction, and the harbour and shops of St Ives in the other. It has stunning views of the harbour and Godrevy Lighthouse. One of the very few properties in the heart of St Ives to have a garden. The garden has been tiered in line with the cliff face. The gazebo/summer house at the top of the garden has comfy seating, a heater and doors that open out fully - in effect giving you another lounge space. The cottage is just 2 minutes walk from St Ives railway station. Parking can be found in the station car park or arranged off-site with the owner.

A gem in the heart of St Ives

  • 4 of 5

I can highly recommend both this property and the owner. We had a wonderful week in St Ives and were so satisfied with this property. It is ideally located on the Warren which is a quaint street leading to the heart of St Ives and is a stones throw from two wonderful beaches, one of which is dog friendly.

The house has, unlike many properties in St Ives, outdoor space and we spent most days on the decked area enjoying a fantastic view across the harbour.

The property was impeccably clean and well maintained and had all the home comforts you would need including bedding and linen. We stayed with a small baby and dog and both enjoyed the stay. We loved the hustle and bustle of the Warren but it was sometimes a little noisy, particularly in the evening and this did keep us awake a couple of evenings but this is nothing which can be controlled by the owner just something to make other visitors aware of. That said, the property is in the heart of the town, so a small compromise to make!

There is no parking at the property, but there is parking at the station which is busy, but only a two minute walk. We also parked our car at the top of the hill outside of St Ives, which was free and gave us a good leg stretch up the hill!

The owner was wonderful in communications and very attentive.

The harbour at St Ives is lined with pubs, and restaurants. In particular we can highly recommended the Sloops and Wafflecious.

Don't hesitate to book this property - you won't be disappointed!

From the Owner

We walked past when our children were young and saw the 'for sale' sign. We couldn't resist the potential and the location and have loved it ever since. The children surf, fish, explore. We all love it!

From the Owner

The cottage is so close to the beach you can hear the waves breaking. The beaches are fantastic and there is something for everyone. A gentle swim or a big surf! Restaurants are brilliant and just a take-away on the deck works for us too.
