We had the pleasure of being some of the first guests to stay at 1 Island Square after its recent renovation...and what a treat! The Cottage itself is located in the heart of the town, just a short stroll away from the hustle and bustle of the harbour. There is space outside the property to unload your luggage and a public car park just seconds away. We paid £33 for a weekly ticket which allows you to come and go as you please and to use any of the other council run car parks in the town. The property itslef is a traditional fisherman’s cottage that has been updated to a very high standard while maintaining the original look and feel. You enter the cottage into a spacious reception area with the lounge off to your right and stairs directly in front. The lounge was very comfortable and cosy and tastefully decorated. There is a flat screen TV, DVD player and stereo as well as board games and an interesting selection of books to choose from. There is also WiFi connection - Very important to most people these days! Down stairs is where the fisherman would have originally kept their nets. Now it's a very well equipped Kitchen and dining room with all the Mod cons. Great Cooker, dishwasher, microwave and fridge freezer as well as good quality crockery and cutlery. There is a family size dining table as well as an area with wicker furniture and another flat screen TV.and radio. The second floor has three good size bedrooms and a neat bathroom. Each room has a white colour scheme and some nice decorative touches. All rooms have a wardrobe and chest of draws providing ample storage for your clothes. The Bathroom is small and neat with the space being very well utilised. All bath towels and bed linen is supplied on site. The cottage is in a great location with everything just a short walk away. The town itself is delightful and is full of fantastic places to eat and drink - Olive’s cafe across from the cottage is a must for cream teas and cakes! We would recommend the beaches at Porthmear and porthminster which are just a short walk away and especially the Porthminster cafe for that special lunch or dinner. Overall, the accommodation was everything and more that we could have expected. It's spacious but cosy and you feel at home straight away. We would thoroughly recommend 1 Island Square and hope to return sometime very soon!
