Step Inside

Capturing the period of the cottage, think exposed granite feature walls combined with white painted tongue and groove panelling offering a fresh white backdrop punctuated with turquoise blues and nautical artwork.  The cosy lounge is located downstairs and features a corner group suite, great for those evenings in front of a good film or listening to music during an overdue catch up with friends.  Also on the ground floor is a twin room with exposed granite feature wall combined with white painted tongue and groove panelling.  Stairs lead upstairs to the first floor where the further two bedrooms are spaced out ensuring privacy from the comings and goings of holiday life.  Be it family brunches or indulgent suppers the dining room offers a solid wood table with eight chairs, DAB radio with iPod dock and a original sash window that boasts a view of the sea!  Stairs lead from the dining room with sea blue painted wooden floor boards to a wonderful mezzanine level with vaulted ceiling and toughened glass partitioning (restricted head height).  There are two comfy chairs, beanbags, coffee table, lamp and a collection of games.  The mezzanine is the perfect place for chilling out after a long day on the beach.  There is a Velux window showcasing a view across St Ives Bay.

From your Holiday Door

Stroll from your holiday door into the heart of St Ives, wander amongst the shops and cafes, sunbathe on the beach or take a dip in the azure blue sea.  A plethora of beaches await including Porthmeor, The Harbour and Porthgwidden all offering beach cafe options and beach shops.  Choose to escape the hubbub of St Ives for the day and head up the coast taking in the breathtaking scenery along the way, a photographers dream!  With its prime position, exceptional quality throughout and of course, sea view, The Loft will be a popular choice for families and couples seeking first class accommodation in a central St Ives location.

We had a fabulous week at the loft and hope to return. The standard of the cottage was fabulous and the location in the heart of St Ives made it ideal for the shops and beaches

A great property and I would come here again

Marina Pirotta

We loved having a Christmas tree 🎄 ...thank you!

Lysa Nash

We loved it, perfect house in the perfect location.

Deborah Perry

The Loft proved to be ABSOLUTELY ideal to the party of 6 we were. The 2 teenage boys shared the room downstairs and had the lounge & bathroom more or less to themselves - they were somehow well-contained that way...)) The 2 younger girls were happy to share a room on the 1st floor and spent most of their time enjoying the attic space. The main bathroom upstairs with bath and shower was super convenient for the 2 adults and 2 girls. Kitchenware is plenty and allows to cook for large parties. The property is bright and very central and offers some views towards the Church. One could wish to see the sea. As the street is hardly suitable to motor vehicles it is super quiet. Well, a top-notch property in St Ives. It was our fourth time in this lovely beach town and should we come back, The Loft it will be! Thank you.
