Check in to Water's Edge cottage and experience harbour side living from your front row location! This beautiful Cornish cottage has been flawlessly renovated and interior designed to present first class holiday living in the heart of St Ives. The cottage is set over 3 floors with 2 boutique bedrooms, a wonderful bijou living space and open plan kitchen and dining area all set to the sea front backdrop of golden sand beaches, blue seas and characterful fishing boats. 

We were very privileged to have been the first guests to stay at this stunning property which truly reflects the ethos of Cornish Gems. What a treat watching the ebb and flow of harbour life from each floor. The bed was one of the most comfortable that we've slept in and the location was surprisingly quiet at night, ensuring a good night's sleep.

Step Inside

Aptly named, Water's Edge is quite literally a stone's throw from St Ives beach with harbour front access on The Wharf. Step inside the traditional cottage with welcoming dining space and kitchen area with large window flooding the room with natural light, the window seat offers a tempting spot to sit and watch the world go by. The small yet fully fitted kitchen has been thoughtfully considered to help create the perfect holiday menus with the latest gadgets and most stylish of crockery and cutlery to ensure you dine in style. Climb cottage the stairs to the first floor and soak up the harbour views from the bijou living room, from low tide to high tide, capture the maritime comings and goings on the ebb and flow. Hunker down by the fire in the cooler months after a blustery walk or simply enjoy a lazy morning and long overdue catch up. The family bathroom completes the first floor with a cool contemporary style. Climb to the second floor and enjoy the lofty living from the luxury of the master bedroom, if a room-with-a-view is on your holiday tick list then Water's Edge is hard to beat! Bedroom two is no less considered with stylish reclaimed wooden headboard and whitewashed exposed beams. Each bedroom has been dressed to impress with the finest linens, chic soft furnishings and inspired artwork. Water's Edge flawlessly marries a fashionable scaled back Scandinavian style with the original quirks and features of this traditional harbour front cottage. 

On Your Doorstep

With the golden sands of St Ives harbour, Porthmeor and Porthminster beaches on your doorstep, there really is no better location to experience the community spirit and culture of St Ives, one of Cornwall's most beautiful harbour towns. Wander from your holiday door and pick up the daily loaf and fresh coffee, step out for a beachside lunch or take in the evening atmosphere as visitors enjoy the many bars and artisan cafes along the front. Water's Edge offers the perfect base from which to explore St Ives, discover the heritage of the fishing trade, the popular art scene or simply enjoy the plethora of local shops. Try your hand at some of the local water sports including surfing, kayaking and paddle boarding or hop aboard a local fishing trip and bring home the fish supper. The West of Cornwall offers some of the most beautiful seascapes along the South West Coast Path which can be accessed from the cottage. Take day trip heading towards Land's End and experience the wild scenery of Sennen, Zennor and Porthcurno.

Water's Edge offers a superb base in all seasons and comes highly recommended for guests who enjoy the luxury of a central location.
