We have returned home after spending a wonderful week in Cornish Cottage. This charming little cottage was perfect as a base for exploring St Ives and west Cornwall. The modern fitted kitchen had all the utensils needed for a self catering holiday right down to tea towel and washing up liquid! The attention to detail in the furnishings and decoration was of an extremely high standard, with lovely Egyptian cotton bedding and fluffy white towels. The ensuite bathroom was 5 star and had a nice, powerful shower - and the hairdryer was a nice surprise as I had forgotten to pack mine. The allocated parking space in a quiet side street was handy and a pleasant 6 minute walk to the cottage going past Porthmeor Beach. The cafe on this beach, we discovered, served delicious breakfasts - a nice way to start the day and also watch the surfers. The cottage is ideally located just around the corner from the shops and harbour with lots of restaurants/cafes/bakeries to choose from. We have many great memories of our stay at Cornish Cottage and would recommend it without hesitation.

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.

Reviewed December 28, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

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!

“Hampton couple Cornwall holiday”

Stylish cottage that retains many of the original features offset against modern. Very small but adequate for 2 people. Note: The bed is a single and a half so if you are like us tall and large framed it may be very tight and the mattress is very soft. The location was central for everything so take your time and explore St Ives properly. Our only main comment to share is that if you are looking to get away and have a lie in this is not the place for you. Deliveries were being offloaded outside the window at 7.15am and just after 8 through the week, the charming church bells chime every hour and we also had road drilling first thing one morning. When it's quiet it is a lovely and relaxing place to stay in. The owners were also very thoughtful with Cornish scones, cream and jam for us which we loved!
