A wonderful cottage in St Ives Downalong area

Tyreen is an ideally positioned bolthole in St Ives; tucked away in the quiet Downalong area, yet just a hop and skip to the harbour, beach and hub of St Ives. The cottage is set over three floors, providing plenty of space for family and friends to gather together and create cherished Cornish memories. Whether you spend the day watching wild winter waves roll in from the Atlantic, mooching around the picturesque harbour town, or lazing on Porthmeor's golden sand in summertime, Tyreen is a wonderful seaside sanctuary to retire to.

Step Inside

Tyreen is a three-storey cottage set within touching distance of St Ives' stunning harbour. Arrive into the ground floor; the open plan living, dining and kitchen area, where coastal charm and quality furnishings create a quintessential St Ives ambience. Relax in the window seat or sink into the comfortable sofa while you plan your day on Cornwall's beautiful coast. The kitchen and dining room continue the nautical feel with powder blue fascias and pretty tiles. The dining table offers ample space for all the crew to enjoy a special meal together, whipped up from fresh local produce in the well equipped kitchen. The floor below offers even more living space, where cosy Winter evenings can be spent watching family favourites, playing board games or enjoying great conversation late into the night. Heading upstairs, the first floor is home to three bedrooms, each with their own style and the most luxurious of bedding. The master room showcases an opulent, stylish headboard, characterful seaside cushions and an en-suite shower room, perfect for de-sanding after fun-filled beach days. 

From your Holiday Door

From your holiday door, wander leisurely to the harbour and watch the seafaring world go by. From the bobbing boats to the surfers in the bay, St Ives truly achieves that postcard perfect scene. A gorgeous collection of art galleries depict the unique Cornish landscape, whilst potteries and independent shops are just waiting to be explored. If eating out is on the agenda, why not indulge in the local cuisine? Restaurants whip up delicious menus with seafood just off the boat, and everything from fish and chips on the harbour, to a fine dining experience is on offer. If the wider West of Cornwall tempts you, hop on the prettiest coastal train ride to St Erth, where you can find a connecting train to Penzance. Steeped in legend and accessed by crossing the causeway by boat or on foot, St Michael's Mount is well worth a visit here. Coastal hot spots Sennen and Mousehole are also within 30 minutes from Tyreen, each promising a fantastic day trip.

So for windswept Winter weekends, to sun-drenched Summer stays, Tyreen really is a perfectly positioned Gem from which to embrace a very Cornish lifestyle.
