About the property

Ideal location - near everything, beach, town, more beaches, coastal path

The cottage is south facing, light and airy in the summer and warm and cosy in the winter. It is in a peaceful position away from traffic in a small pedestrian alley. Binns is arranged over 3 floors and manages to accommodate all the necessary features of modern living whilst retaining its character.

The cottage has just had a refurb with a new kitchen and shower room, windows and doors have been replaced and this contributes to a pretty good place and location.

Excellent property really close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Had a great stay at Binns Cottage. Although small, the cottage is well laid out and maintained. We arrived at 3.00am, which did not faze the owner - the cottage has keyless entry.

Facilities provided were adequate. Only downside was that as a family of four, we had nowhere to dry beach and bath towels - the owner told us that despite the description on the website, the towel rails were not switched on in summer. This made for damp towels for much of the time.

St Ives town centre is no more than 5 minutes from the cottage, and the plethora of cafes and restaurants caters for every taste.

Owner's Response: Mike W said that the towel rails were not on however he requested the full heating system to dry towels and even opened the rad valves on all the radiators in his endeavour to dry towels. Clearly he wanted to find an issue that did not please him and became unpleasant in his response to my suggestions that seemed to have been O.K with other guests. Airer outside in the sun has worked for years!

Binns Cottage- St Ives

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay in this cottage, having discovered it 2 years ago. During our 1st visit we fell in love with St Ives and decided to come back to this cottage, due to it's perfect location and price. it really is just 60 seconds from the beach and just 2 minutes from the town centre, yet hidden away and therefore very quiet and peaceful. We love the self catering facilities which provide us with the ability to have a mix of eating out and a bit of our own cooking. The cottage is clean and comfortable and provided a perfect Cornish base for our week away. St Ives has to be the best English holiday venue and we shall be returning to Binns Cottage in September.
