    “This cottage is in a great location as it is walking distance to St Ives (45 minutes) along the South West coast path.”

    The cottage was very comfy and easy to turn the heating up/down which is an important consideration at this time of year (October). The WiFi was excellent. We felt safe and there was a good Covid-19 plan/information with what to do who to contact etc.

About the location


Penzance 6 miles.

One of Cornwall's prettiest harbour towns, St Ives offers narrow streets, tight-packed cottages nestling around the quayside, the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth museum, fabulous beaches, superb shops, a thriving community of artists, great pubs and restaurants and much more. With its semi Bohemian lifestyle and romantic air, it's easy to see why this is the county's premier holiday resort. The surrounding area has much for the visitor to see and do with abundant wildlife, fabulous coastal walks, top quality surfing and the Celtic mysteries of the Land's End Peninsula are all within easy reach. A superb destination!
