  • "We had a fantastic week and the cottage was perfect, well presented, tea, coffee and milk on arrival and a great location - perfect for the town and beach."

    My only feedback is a bigger sign for the cottage or a bit more prominent would help finding it - we would have never found it in the dark, it was only because of a comment I had read that it was opposite the shop - which is super handy by the way.! Overall though a great base to get out and explore St. Ives.

  • "Courtyard garden is actually bigger than the pictures show and is a great little sun trap to boot!"

  • "The communication with the owners was excellent prior to our stay."

    They were very helpful. Although we know the area very well, the cottage itself was extremely hard to find - a change to the directions would definitely help: by adding 'take the second right' once on Alexandra Rd, this would have helped us to find the property much more easily. There were some (small) maintenance issues we noticed upon arrival, like the button on the toaster was broken, the panel on the bath in the en-suite was hanging on by sellotape and the sofa upholstery was damaged in places around the feet of the main sofa. These issues did not affect our stay however. We would have liked a more detailed information folder with instructions of how to use the range cooker/oven, and when bin day was to put the rubbish out (as our bin was half-full upon arrival) - we usually have this information when staying with other travel companies, like Aspects, St Ives Holidays, etc. so perhaps this is something to add in the future. The keyring on the house key made it difficult to use the lock-box without it jamming. The cleanliness of the cottage was brilliant - please pass on our thanks to the cleaners. Bed linens, towels, etc. were all really clean and appreciated. The overall décor of the house was lovely, clean and bright. We did find the over-table lights in the dining area really low and had many a bumped head during our stay - maybe they could be raised a little to avoid this problem. Overall, the property was lovely and very clean. Thank you.

    Many thanks for your review. The bath panel has been repaired and wish you had reported the toaster directly to me, and I would have replaced it during your stay. Due to the access into the lounge and tight turn into the lounge we have had to buy a 4 seater and 2 seater sofa that had to be built in the lounge. I have checked the sofa and there is nothing wrong with the upholstery of the feet. It is how the sofa is made, and that the join around the feet can be seen. Bins are emptied on a commercial bookable basis. I monitor the bins and put them out on the day before collection. Your bin wasn't full on Tuesday, collection day, and was only full on the day of your departure. This was then emptied prior to the next guests arrival. We would rather guests didn't have to worry about bins during their holidays, and so we monitor them. But so glad that you found Rose clean, and I will pass on your thanks to the cleaners. Thank you.

  • "Lovely property, toiletries & milk in fridge nice extras."

    One very minor thing was absence of a frying pan, had to use wok! But everything else there to make for fabulous stay.

  • "Rose Cottage gets a big thumbs up from us."

    Beautifully set up, super comfortable and a great location…even the seagulls seemed quieter in this part of town! The outside space was a real bonus, and the little shop across the road was a holiday game changer. No more carrying heavy bags of basics up from town. The only downside was that we couldn’t stay longer.

  • "Reverse in to tight car parking space."

    It was tricky to find. Well equipped kitchen. We found the central heating a challenge (February 2022) as we couldn’t find how to boost over the timer as it was very chilly on return from days out. There was a log fire. The control panel was too difficult to see/reach. Perhaps the instructions to use would have been very helpful. The en-suite toilet was very compact and not pleasant if you have claustrophobic tendencies. Lovely welcome from host and bottle of wine. Excellent location.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have with agreement from the neighbouring property, removed 3 feet of the boundary fencing, to allow for ease of parking. We always suggest reversing into the 2 parking spaces. Property Owner

  • "A lovely, cosy cottage."

    Really well equipped and so warm. Great parking. Great location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "The kitchen equipment was excellent with plenty of plates, cutlery etc."

    The house was clean and the TVs in every room were great. The outside area was a bit cramped and the space for cars was extremely limited and difficult to access. The location was excellent, with shops and beach close by and handy store opposite. All appliances and washing line, bins etc. were easily accessed. We had a great stay though.

The property

Rose Cottage perched at the top of Porthmeor Hill, a delightful semi-detached cottage just 200 metres from the surfing beach Porthmeor and 300 metres from the town centre.

This exceptional self-catering cottage is the perfect base for up to six people to come together for a holiday filled with breath-taking scenery, sublime beaches and memorable walks along the South West Coastal Path.

Enter into the property and be welcomed into the sitting room, where you can snuggle up on the sofa, with the characterful stone fireplace housing a woodburning, creating a cosy ambiance during the winter months.

Admire the photos of old St Ives within this room, giving you a small insight into the past of this wonderful town before making your way into the heart of the home, the kitchen/diner.

The Range cooker takes centre stage before all of the other appliances that are arranged in a contemporary assortment, certain to encourage a spot of cooking before regrouping with your loved ones to enjoy some catch up time, accompanied with a well-deserved glass of something chilled.

In the summer months, you can look forward to heading out onto the private courtyard area to indulge in a spot of alfresco dining, whilst enjoying the final moments of sunshine before you retire to bed.

Afterwards, head upstairs to catch your rest in one the three bedrooms, each one boasting an immaculate interior design with a refreshing colour palette, good storage and their own TVs, ideal for those lazy mornings snuggled under the plush duvets.

Choose been a king-size bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, a super-king-size bedroom with zip link beds that can be made into two singles and a twin bedroom, designed to ensure a flexible sleeping arrangement for groups of couples, friends and families.

Better acquaint yourself with your surroundings as you take a short stroll into the centre of St Ives, winding your way through the narrow lanes before reaching quayside, home to a plethora of shops and places to eat and drink.

Whilst here, be sure to make some time to explore the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth Museum, before soaking up the sunshine at one of the town beaches, including the lush, golden stretch of Porthmeor Beach, St Ives’ most premier beach.

Popular with surfers and water sports enthusiasts alike due to the south-westerly gales it enjoys, this beautiful, Blue Flag destination has lifeguards on duty from Easter to October, is flanked by two, rugged headlands, and boasts magnificent, awe-inspiring views that gaze out upon the brilliant blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

You can also head to the nearby, picturesque Porthgwidden Beach, where you can stroll along with your canine companion by your side, you are sure to find the perfect beach.

After enjoying the delights of St Ives, lace up your walking shoes and discover the South West Coastal Path, where you can catch glimpses of tall granite cliffs, hidden coves and fascinating wildlife along the way.

Alternatively, take your car further afield to visit the landmark attractions of Land's End, St Michael's Mount and The Minack Theatre, each one promising to be excellent days out for the whole family.

At the end of each day, look forward to returning to Rose Cottage for a relaxing evening.
