Located just moments from the beautiful harbour front of St Ives, West Cornwall, Cora’s Cottage has been flawlessly renovated to a high standard with considered interior design and thoughtful layout. 2 beautiful bedrooms offer accommodation for 4 guests with generous living, dining and kitchen spaces.

A charming cottage courtyard offers a private setting to sit and unwind. 

The Property

Cora’s Cottage is a traditional Cornish cottage set over 2 levels. Arrive to the welcoming hallway and lead into the serenity of the living room, this beautiful space offers comfortable seating for all amidst a stylish palette of soft cream hues and more vibrant orange through the soft furnishings. Local artwork adorns the walls and evokes the windswept beaches and coastal nuances of West Cornwall. A separate dining room with large dining table and 4 chic red dining chairs provides a beautiful setting for holiday dining and has been lovingly decorated with handcrafted pottery. The ship shape kitchen is to the rear of the cottage and has all you could need for your stay. A central staircase with traditional cottage features climbs to the first floor and choice of 2 boutique style bedrooms, a restful king bedded room and further twin with Quaker style white wooden beds. A family bathroom completes the first floor layout, a modern bathroom with deep bath and shower. The attention to detail and personal design flair of the owner brings a truly homely ambiance to Cora’s Cottage and ensures guests leave feeling rested and rejuvenated.

Cornish Gems are very pleased to present Cora's Cottage, thoughtfully designed with luxury and comfort in mind

An enclosed courtyard garden leads off the kitchen with stylish bistro table and dining chairs, capture the morning sun as the day begins and you map out your daily agenda. Amble from your holiday door to the harbour front in moments and enjoy the comings and goings of the colourful fishing boats. St Ives offers a tempting choice of cafes and restaurants in all seasons and the myriad of shops and galleries offers inspirational shopping. Beach days are easily achieved with some of the South West's most beautiful shores located within walking distance. Take a day trip to the south Coast and discover the maritime influences of Falmouth or Fowey or the picture perfect villages of The Roseland Peninsula.

Cora’s Cottage is as perfect for 4 as for a cosy stay just-for-two. This luxury abode is no everyday holiday home, stay in style and thoughtful comfort at Cora’s Cottage.

A lovely property well represented, we really liked it. Everyone was really helpful and genuinely friendly, it was a great experience.

Jack Wallington

It was so beautiful and a real home-from-home.

Siobhan Harley

The photos reflected the rooms in the property very accurately. The welcome gifts were lovely and very kind. The property was clean and felt very welcoming. My mother has a degree of mobility issues and the property was ideal as it had a downstairs walk in shower/level to the patio and a bannister rail to assist the stairs. Further its location was ideal as a short walk to the town.

Mrs Susan Radcliffe

Cora's cottage was really lovely, I would fully recommend it.

Rachel Burch

We have used various holiday letting agencies before Cornish Gems which have all been good. Cornish Gems exceeded all of them with cleanliness, warmth and attention to detail. We loved the fact that you contacted us to make sure we were happy in the cottage, I also had to ring the office a couple of times before we left for St Ives and the girls were so helpful and pleasant. Well done Cornish Gems you have two new converts.

Christine Parker

The cottage a delight and staff response excellent. Would recommend to friends. If we buy a property in St Ives, which we intend to do, would place property with Cornish Gems.

Ron Bennett

I have already recommended this property to friends, the location is excellent so you don't need a car particularly. Everything inside the property was extremely well presented, with appreciated welcome touches such as milk in the fridge (we arrived at midnight so this was wonderful).Will definitely recommend property & company without hesitation. Thank you


The cottage had a good central location and was very spacious. Having the outdoor space and second bathroom was useful

Debbie Ireland

We loved our stay at the cottage. The decor is full of character. The facilities first class. The back garden is a wonderful sun trap.
