Step Inside

From the moment you arrive, the thoughtful attention to detail and considered cottage atmosphere sets the holiday scene from the local artwork, bespoke pottery and stylish coastal inspired linens to the high standard of furnishings and luxury fabrics. Arrive to the spacious ground floor with inspiring cottage kitchen and relaxed dining area. This versatile space comes alive with family and friends, a real hub to the house as you map out the days agenda over a lazy breakfast or simple early supper for children as you prepare a more indulgent dinner. The family bathroom is set just off the kitchen on the ground floor. Ascend the wooden stairs to the welcome comfort of the 1st floor, choose to unwind in the TV room with a favourite film or cosy up by the fire in the drawing room. Set on the 2nd floor are two bedrooms, a pretty cottage double bedroom adorned in soft muted hues (ensuite) and a childs bedroom with 2 x sets of white wooden bunks. A family shower room is convieniently located on the 2nd floor. Climb the stairs to the lofty Master bedroom and take in the sea views, this spacious double bedded room assures a quiet haven from holiday life below. 


From your Holiday Door

From the 1st floor doors lead out onto a sit out balcony, perfectly placed to capture the afternoon sunshine and tea-for-two at the small cafe table and chairs. There is an outside hose, perfect for those sandy toes and beach kit. The Fish Cellar lies in wonderful central location with the blue surf and white sands of Porthmeor just moments away or the boutique shops and cafe within a short wander. Ease into St Ives life as you pop out for freshly baked pastries and the morning paper, nip back for a lunch on the go or take a harbour stroll after dinner - this wonderful cottage becomes home for your party to come and go. Whatever the season St Ives brings a truly Cornish experience to your stay, warmer months bring the beaches to life and water sports or enjoy retail therapy in any of the artisan galleries, cafes and gift shops year round. Hit the coast road and head West as the landscape changes into wild Cornwall or explore some of the other maritime harbours during your stay.

Beautiful interiors, luxury cottage ambiance and a plumb St Ives location - just some of the reasons The Fish Cellar will become your perfect coastal idyll.
