Holiday Cottages in St Ives, Cornwall

St Ives seems to have that special something that draws people to it and keeps us in love with it.

The relaxed pace of life makes time move a little slower and things feel a little simpler in St Ives. The bobbing boats in the harbour and the cobbled streets, lined with old fishermen’s cottages create the perfect atmosphere to cast you back in time.


Knowing you’ll be going back to a luxury holiday cottage, take the time to stroll around the town while enjoying an indulgent ice cream made from lovely Cornish clotted cream, watch fishermen stack lobster pots on the pier or paddle in turquoise Mediterranean-esque waters. We never get tired of exploring the beaches, roaming the countryside or walking the coastal paths, especially when it ends with a pint at The Tinner’s Arms in Zennor and cheating by getting the bus back.

Many of the holiday cottages in St Ives today were once fishermen’s cottages with the fruits of the sea providing the main income of the town. As time rolled forward the St Ives Bay train line rolled in, making the town flourish with residents opening their doors to visitors and skilled artists.

What our guests say …

St Ives has a magnetism that draws us back year after year. I like to think of myself as a local and something that keeps me going when I'm back home is that one day we'll able to live there permanently.

We just love everything about St Ives: its people, the harbour and beaches, the art galleries, just everything.

St Ives is the place I go to reset and become 'me' again. Whether it's the town's culture, history or just its beauty, it's like nowhere else I've ever been.

Quite simply, my favourite place in the world.
