In the heart of St. Ives

  • 5 of 5

Alison's fisherman's cottage was perfect for our two week Cornwall holiday. Location could not have been better as the cottage was just a very short stroll to St. Ives' beaches and the Island. Kitchen was very well equipped and bedrooms were very comfortable. We appreciated the welcome flowers, wine, biscuits... including dog biscuits for our pup! Thank you, Alison!

Beautiful cottage in the best location

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous week in a beautiful and well equipped cottage. We were a family with two small children and the location was excellent - 2 minutes walk to a great kid friendly beach with a lovely restaurant. All amenities / shops / restaurants were within a minutes walk from the cottage, with a great cafe opposite. The cottage was cosy with lovely towels and linen and there was endless hot water which was continuously needed to wash sandy children! A great holiday and we will be back!

Charming cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely week in St Ives. 2 Island Square is a charming, well appointed / located cottage just off the main shopping and harbour area of St Ives. It's 200 yards from the Island car park and the surfing beach at Porthmeor.

The rooms were just right for the 5 of us and the cottage provided a great base to explore the beautiful surroundings of West Cornwall. Whilst there is no parking (beyond loading and unloading) at the cottage we purchased a weekly parking ticket giving access to all car parks in St Ives but never failed to get parked overnight at the Island car park which is just at the end of the road from the cottage.

Alison the owner was super helpful in the run up to our visit and afterwards, providing great advice to enhance our stay.

Wonderful cottage 5 mins from beach, shops and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is situated in an ideal location, close to a beach, lovely coffee shops, restaurants and shops. Alison has refurbished the cottage to a very high standard and it has all the home comforts. We had excellent weather, which showed St Ives at it's best - I can't believe how turquoise the sea looked!

Great location close to all beaches

  • 5 of 5

We found 2 Island Square ideally situated with just a few mins walk to the harbour and town. The cottage benefits by having 2 bathrooms, bedrooms had a light and airy feel to them.

Added advantage we were able to off load our luggage at the door before taking our car to car park.

A hidden treasure in Central St Ives

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this cottage for a week with 4 other ladies which was very comfortable having a bathroom and shower room was a bonus!!! Plenty of hot water. The cottage was was very clean and well equipped. The beds were very comfortable with quality bedding. The bunk beds were plenty big enough for 2 adults

Plenty of walking paths close by and restaurants almost on your doorstep for the evening meal.

Good customer service from the owner leaving a contact number if needed.

I would highly recommend this cottage

Special interest holidays:

As well as the many beaches and art galleries in St Ives, 2 Island Square is the perfect base to explore all of what Cornwall has to offer.

There is the Eden Project, perhaps Cornwall’s most internationally famous attraction, where not only can you see what grows in the biomes but they also have many events going on throughout the year from music gigs to circus extravaganzas, there is something for everyone.

Other places worth visiting include the quaint fishing village of Port Isaac – the location of ITV’s Doc Martin, and Porthcurno – home of the Minack Theatre and a beach with the most turquoise sea you will see in Britain.

Coast/Beach:

Our cottage is less than a 5 minute walk to four of St Ives' spectacular Beaches including Porthmeor Beach, Porthgwidden Beach, Barnaluz (dog friendly) Beach and the Harbour Beach.

Further Details:

Our Cottage is perfectly situated in the heart of St Ives’ conservation area of ‘Downalong’, and is a level walk to all that St Ives offers.

Only minutes from both Porthmeor and Porthgwidden beaches, the Harbour and the Tate Gallery.

The Island Car park is a short walk away, as is The Sloop Inn one of Cornwall’s oldest and most famous Inns circa 1312.

If you fancy going further afield from St Ives you are perfectly situated to travel all over Cornwall whether it is to walk the coastal paths, have a day out at the fabulous Eden Project or visit some of the best beaches Europe has to offer and spend your days topping up your tan.
