Step Inside

The owners have stylishly created a unique and welcoming ambiance with a touch of luxury.  Rich chestnut wood flooring and work tops add warmth whilst the fresh white backdrop, with soft blues and browns, creates a homely feel.  The cosy, open plan living space comfortably seats 4 and is perfect for use in all seasons, from cosy fireside chats to summer day shade.  The stylish sitting room and kitchen lead to a light filled conservatory with dining table and comfy chairs, a holiday essential when the Cornish summer weather changes!  Upstairs, each bedroom offers a sumptuous sleeping experience, again beautifully styled so you can sink under fluffy duvets.

From your Holiday Door

Throw open the conservatory doors to the pretty garden complete with teak furniture. A lush green lawn is lovely for a lazy sunbathe, or for children to play safely on.  Pear Tree Cottage is the perfect choice of holiday home if you want to stay in a quiet and peaceful location but still be ideally located for easy access to explore the West Cornwall peninsula.

Home Truths

Incredibly comfortable beds. Very convenient location, especially with trains being so easy to use. Good restaurants within walking distance. Lovely garden. Good internet connection which was great.

I really love Pear Tree Cottage and enjoy staying there - it's a beautiful property

Debs Eden

We were very happy in the cottage on our second stay and will be returning.


We had a couple of issues during our stay but these were handled very well. The cottage was lovely and the welcome pack was a really nice touch with useful items. We would certainly use Cornish Gems again.

Sarah Williams

The property was perfect for my family of 4, which provided separate space for our children to hang out (on the rainy days in the conservatory), along with space for me and my husband. We also loved being out of busy St Ives.

Enitan Ledger

This is the second time we have stayed in a Cornish Gems property and both have been fantastic holiday homes. The booking is easy, the customer service excellent and it is clear that the standard of the properties available are reliably high quality.

Andrew Brown

Cornish Gems are the best we have used for a holiday let. We will continue to use you for our Cornish holidays.

Geoff Pegg

The property is in a lovely location for a holiday in St Ives and has all the facilities that we could wish for. Consequently, we'd have no hesitation in staying there again in the future.

We enjoyed our stay. Nice touch with the soaps and everything was clean etc. Your website is excellent... The staff from the office were lovely too. Thanks.

Jennifer Mahon

Gorgeous cottage which was very clean, well equipped and in an excellent place to get the park and ride train into St. Ives. The quality of furnishings and linen was excellent and the cottage being cleaned and the linen changed in the middle of our fortnights holiday was brilliant. We would recommend this property and Cornish Gems to anyone.

Emma Riley

We wanted a special holiday as it was the first with our baby daughter. The holiday was special and Cornish Gems were part of that together with the best weather of 2013. Many thanks.

Mark Newstead

The location of the property was excellent and we were very pleased with the overall cleanliness, and the high standard of fixtures and fittings and linens. The property was very comfortable and we would seriously think of booking the same cottage again, or looking at other Cornish Gem properties - couldn't fault our holiday in any way.

Judy Goodsell

We had a fantastic Christmas break at pear tree cottage. Everything about the house was perfect - so much so that we didn't want to come home! Thank you for a great holiday, we will most definitely be using Cornish gems again.
