This charming little cottage is beautifully decorated and photographs nicely. But it is uncomfortable, inacessable and poorly equipped. A little sugar would have helped the medication go down along with salt, pepper, paper towels...maybe a table and a chair or two? Not a place I would stay again. Our last week of a month in England. Every other pace we stayed exceeded this, unfortunately, a disappointment.
Clean,cosy and cleverly converted,Cornish Cottage had all we wanted. The very genuine and warm welcome,the convenience of the location and of course the magic of St Ives,all combined to give us a brilliant honeymoon holiday.
We stayed at the Cornish Cottage over Christmas. It was perfect. We were very comfortable and cosy with the log burner and underfloor heating. The cottage has been refurbished to a high standard and had everything we needed, including a good wifi connection.
The cottage is in the centre of St Ives and is very close to the pubs,shops and sea front. There is so much to do in the town, even in the middle of winter, that we didn't venture very far, though we did have a fabulous Christmas Eve luncheon in the Porthminster Beach Cafe, complete with red blankets over our knees and hot cocktails to drink.
Margaret, the housekeeper, and her husband Jonathan were very welcoming and helpful.
I have a feeling we will be returning to the Cornish Cottage again!
This was our second visit to St Ives and it was made more special from staying in Cornish Cottage. Wonderful location, stones throw from High Street, yet quite and peaceful, with local church chiming in the distance. Could not fault the interior with all you need for a comfortable stay, and all fish restaurants second to none.

What a wonderful cottage in the centre of St Ives. The cottage was beautifully decorated and really comfortable. We cooked at the cottage and the kitchen was fully equipped. The scones left by Ylenia was a really lovely touch. The weather was amazing during our stay... Looking forward to coming back in colder weather to make use of the wood burner!
