Step Inside

This charming bijou Cornish cottage has been renovated and refurbished to a high standard throughout.  There are 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, one of which is on the first floor (a shower room perfect for de-sanding and de-salting after the beach) meaning that there will never be any queuing for the bathroom!  The clever integration of subtle, modern furniture is elegantly complemented with carefully selected soft furnishings creating your very own 'beside the seaside' retreat.  The modern, fully integrated kitchen is well equipped for your stay - perfect for the budding chefs amongst you.  The open-plan combined kitchen and dining room offers a large dining table.  There is a small bistro set for two outside the front door, ideal for a morning cup of coffee whilst planning the day's events.  Whilst the traditional cottage layout offers smaller accommodation for six, the enviable location means holiday life dips in and out of the hubbub of St Ives.

From your Holiday Door

Steps lead down from the front door of the cottage onto Court Cocking.  Heading left, just a few seconds along the cobbled street you arrive at the picture postcard harbour front.  Heading right will lead you onto the cobbles of Fore Street with a further selection of restaurants, cafes and shops.  Whichever way you turn, there are tasty delights to be discovered, sand to be felt between the toes and attractive treats to take home for your loved ones.  While the property offers no parking, the local car parks are conveniently located just minutes away.  You can park up on the harbour front to unload your car on arrival - Cornish Gems recommend that someone who can move the car if required stays with the car during this process.  Explore all this award winning coastal harbour town has to offer - stop by the Quay for an ice cream or cream tea, take a tour around the Harbour on one of the self-drive motorboats or explore one of the many galleries.  The Barbara Hepworth Museum or the highly acclaimed Tate Gallery are located within 5 minutes minutes walk from the cottage.
