Step into this quaint and cosy cottage, hidden away in a tangle of narrow cobbled streets in the most historic section of St Ives. Spread over three floors, and delightfully close to the coast, you'll have wonderful views from the bedrooms from the minute you wake up. In the colder months, gather everyone around the fireplace to socialise and enjoy drinks – the sash windows throughout the home can be flung open to let the sea air in when the sun is beaming. Curl up on one of the sofas with a good book from the included collection, or have a board game night after a day out on the nearby beaches or explore the fabulous coastal town. If you're here with the family, you'll be within easy driving distance of two blue flag beaches, meaning they're particularly clean with plenty of amenities for a guaranteed wonderful day out. If you're heading over to Porthmeor Beach, the most famous , you'll want to take in some of the famous art scene at the Tate St Ives right beside it. Hikers and those who love to indulge in some nature walking will be in for a treat, with no shortage of coastal paths to discover during your trip. You can expect to indulge in some fabulous local food too, whether you're whipping up something from local ingredients in the kitchen, or heading out to one of the many nearby restaurants where you're sure to discover your new favourite dish.
