Set just off the picturesque harbour front

Locations don't get better than this.  Harbour Beach Cottage, as the name suggests, is situated on the harbour front in St Ives enjoying stunning views of the busy harbour and bay from every front facing window.  Pack up the car, with dog in tow and immerse yourself in this central cottage-by-the-sea.

The Property

The owners have carefully created a homely retreat and base from which to enjoy your holiday in the jewel of the Cornish crown that is St Ives.  Painted with fresh white walls each room is punctuated with a fusion of confident colours from the stripe and spot prints of the sitting room to the striking black and green tiling of the kitchen.  This versatile holiday home ensures ample space in which to sit back and relax or for a group of people to come together for a old fashioned catch up.  Each bedroom has been individually styled in cool blues and linen whites creating a restful haven.

Fantastic holiday home very cosy and well presented will definitely book again. 5 star. Cornish Gems were excellent to book with and always friendly and polite.

Outside the kitchen is a pretty vintage love seat painted in a soft Cornish blue so you can enjoy the views and fresh air with your morning coffee, afternoon ice cream, or that post dinner digestif.  With its central St Ives location you are well placed to explore the cobbled streets and harbour front with the bustle of fishing boats bringing in their catch.  A tempting collection of cafes, restaurants and shops are just moments away - walk from holiday home door to a morning latte and cake in no time.  Harbour Beach Cottage suits couples and families seeking a prime harbour front location with all the delights of this picturesque coastal town.

Perched up a slope called Mount Zion, and not so far from Teetotal Street (I jest not) which had everything that you could possibly want, including a view of the harbour.
