Cormorant Cottage enjoys an incredible position tucked away on Court Cocking which links St Ives Harbour (Wharf Rd) to Fore Street (near The Seafood Cafe).  With an array of restaurants, cafes, boutique shops and galleries literally on your doorstep and the golden sandy beaches a mere stone's throw away, Cormorant Cottage is the perfect choice for couples or families seeking a premium quality harbour side cottage. One small dog welcomed.

The Property

This charming and characterful Cornish cottage has been renovated and refurbished to a high standard throughout.  There are 3 bedrooms and also 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 and has been decked out with soft grey units and wooden worktops  - perfect for the budding chefs amongst you.  The open-plan combined kitchen and dining room offers a large dining table with 6 chairs.  There is a small bistro set outside the front door, ideal for a morning cup of coffee whilst planning the day's events.  Whether it's a family summer holiday or a winter weekend getaway, Cormorant Cottage sits in an enviable spot and boasts everything you could possibly wish for.

We had a wonderful time, the cottage was beautiful and felt so relaxing and we look forward to coming back again, for longer next time.

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.

We really enjoyed our stay in the cottage - loved the kitchen/family room and appreciated all the care which has gone into the decor and general ambience of the place. The convenience of it's position in relation to all we needed in St Ives was excellent.
