About the property

Cottage in St Ives, Cornwall, England - Peaceful Location, 30 Minutes Walk To St Ives Town And Beach

Gillyflower Cottage is a charming granite property among a collection of converted farm buildings along a quiet country track just one and half miles from the heart of St Ives. The property is in a beautiful rural location surrounded by fields and classic Cornish countryside perfect for a leisurely stroll or demanding dog walk. The accommodation is spread over two floors with an entrance porch perfect for storing wellies and beach items leading into the cosy sitting room with small dining area, which then follows through to the well equipped kitchen and out to the enclosed garden. The two bedrooms (one double, one twin) are situated on the first floor with the family bathroom. Gillyflower Cottage is a great property for familys and pets and the perfect quiet retreat for couples.

Beautiful cottage, perfect location, everything we were hoping for in our break to St Ives

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful and charming cottage in an amazing setting, we felt so at home and comfortable from the minute we turned the key and we were all so sad when the week came to an end and we had to leave. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage for a stay in st Ives , the welcome package was amazing , cream scones and jam, prosecco, the children loved the chocolates. Thank you Abi for letting us stay in your cottage x

Lovely country cottage for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

The cottage has everything you could possibly need for a holiday. Good location for exploring st Ives. There is a narrow lane to navigate down to the cottage but once there we put away the car keys and enjoyed the walk to the town and beaches.

Fabulous cosy cottage retreat in stunning area

  • 5 of 5

This was a really beautifully presented cottage with fantastic attention to detail. Located up a private track, it had easy parking but was very close to gorgeous St Ives. Neighbours around so not lonely but still private. It was equipped like a real home not a holiday house. Lovely comfy beds with immaculate linen. Everything you could possibly need in a kitchen. Big deep bath and great shower in the bathroom with plenty of big white fluffy towels. Characterful back garden - wonderful place to linger with a glass of wine. Amazing huge stone fireplace and a really cosy living room. Can't recommend it highly enough. Write up and photographs on the website do not do justice to the quality of everything at Gillyflower Cottage.

A very clean, chic and cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is cutely small but big enough for four adults without feeling claustrophobic. Very well equipped : enough towels, things like wine bottle stoppers and carrier bags in the kitchen and a very welcome welcome pack (especially the scones, jam and cream !). A very cosy, well-decorated property, we loved it, would definitely book it again.
