About Painter's Cottage

Painter’s Cottage is a perfect, cosy and quintessential St Ives town cottage just moments from the cobbled lane called Fore Street lined with shops, galleries, a deli and restaurants. It is also a very short walk from the harbour front and beach plus just 5 minutes’ stroll from Porthminster beach. Being so central, any public car park in town is within a relaxed 10-minute stroll from the cottage or the train station is also a convenient distance to leave the car at home!

Enter from the quiet lane into the open plan living, kitchen and dining area. Furnished with Laura Ashley touches, shades of colour reminding you of the sea a few moments away and a super addition of an AGA wood burner for toasty evenings in. Be entertained by access to free WiFi, books, DVDs and games or the Smart TVs where you can catch up on your favourites programmes. The kitchen is well equipped with the dining table and four chairs offering extra surface space if needed. To offer more equipment cupboard space as well as a dishwasher in the kitchen (one of life's essentials!) the washer/ dryer and freezer is in a purpose-built cupboard in the small rear outside space (where there is enough room to hang a few wet suits after rinsing them down using the outside tap). 

There is a down stairs shower room and loo plus a further en-suite to the double bedroom upstairs. The second bedroom can either be a king size bed or two small single beds (ideally for children). Both bedrooms have Smart TVs and cupboard hanging space and in the king size room you also have a dressing table with mirror. No expense has been spared on providing guests with super comfortable bedding and soft cotton sheets and towels.

Painters Cottage will make you feel cherished and very welcome. It will also allow you to reach every corner of St Ives town easily while passing extraordinarily beautiful seascapes along the way.

Superbly equipped cottage hidden in the heart of St Ives. Warm and cosy - the wood burner although not necessary gave added comfort to our winter break. Furnishings and bedding very comfortable and to a high standard - loved the fluffy white towels! The cottage had everything you could need - SMART TVs, WI-FI etc. We loved to listen to the church bells and being in the centre of St Ives but you should expect to hear people occasionally passing by etc. Only drawback, and it is a small one, you have to accept that there is nowhere to sit outside, but the seafront is less than 2 mins walk away. A real gem of a cottage.

Painter’s Cottage was perfect - very cosy and in a great location, with probably the easiest access for unloading our stuff upon arrival and getting out again we have experienced in St. Ives. The staff at Orange Roofs were great and all communication and information was first class. Even tho’ the weather was bad, our stay at Painter’s Cottage was lovely. We would highly recommend.

Amazing cottage, very tidy and everything you could want from a St Ives break. Biggest plus point is the location which is right in the centre of the town.

Painters Cottage has a fantastic location right in the heart of St Ives. It is compact, but absolutely fine for 4 people and tastefully furnished throughout. The owners have thought of everything you could need for a comfortable stay. Highly recommended and many thanks.

We stayed in Painter's cottage for a long weekend and it was the perfect place to escape our busy lives! It's central location is ideal for exploring beautiful St Ives. The small details that the owners have made in furnishing this cottage are lovely, especially the use of local artist's work. They have clearly taken the time to make this an idyllic space - I couldn't wait to return to it every night after long days out in the sun. The kitchen is fully equipped for eating in, however there were lots of suggestions on where to eat out in the information folder. We had a wonderful welcome pack waiting for us on arrival too; with milk and tea bags for that first well needed cuppa. Thanks for a wonderful stay and we cannot wait to come back here again.

We stayed at Painter's Cottage for a week in July . It's a beautiful little cottage very nicely furnished and it contains everything you could possibly need for your stay . We found the cottage to be spotlessly clean . And there was a lovely welcome pack containing the essentials of tea ,coffee ,milk,cooking oil etc also a lovely bottle of prosecco and some chocolate . And the fresh flowers were a lovely touch . The beds were so comfy . The cottage is located very central for the shops and beach . And is situated in a quiet little street. The only thing I could fault was that the sinks in both bathrooms were very small ,no good for washing your face in or for the men to have a shave in , the water would go everywhere . Also on our journey to St Ives we got a phone call from the housekeeper telling us that some of the tiles by the front door had lifted and that it was making the door a bit difficult to open and shut and told us that a trades man could call the following day to fix this . We really didn't want workmen around us on our holidays and asked if they could leave it until we had finished our holiday to which the housekeeper agreed . The door did become quite a nuisance through out our stay especially as we had get a pushchair in and out the door it became really hard to open and shut . However apart from the problem with the tiles and the door we had a lovely stay and would defiantly return and would also recommend this lovely little cottage to our family and friends .

Would highly recommend. We stayed in Painter's Cottage at the beginning of June and it was a delight. The cottage was immaculate, tastefully decorated using the most beautiful colours and good quality fixtures and fittings. We also particularly like the use of local art. Everywhere was extremely clean with everything anyone could wish for their holidays. The welcome pack was much appreciated as were the lovely fresh flowers, very thoughtful. The sinks were a little small, but having two bathrooms and especially one upstairs was brilliant as often in small cottages the loo is downstairs. It was a pleasure to return to the cottage every evening, we loved it. Its location is amazing, so close to everything. We will definitely wish to return. Our one criticism is the changeover day being Friday as this is also bin collection day and the owner of the garage opposite insisted on parking her car in front of the garage whilst she moved her bins making it a little awkward to pack our car and we felt a nuisance. We had to move twice whilst attempting to vacate making it a little stressful. That said, because of our early start we managed to be away well before 10 o'clock, so may be worth noting for those still to vacate. Orange Roofs were brilliant and very kindly let us know that the cottage was ready for us slightly earlier which saved us the hassle of driving round looking for parking. Thank you for this, it enabled us to make the use of a beautiful afternoon in the sunshine. MANAGEMENT COMMENT: Hello, thank you for your kind review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Painter's Cottage. We think it's lovely too :) Regarding the bathrooms, thank you for the feedback about these. We are pleased to be able to report that the owner has now replaced the downstairs shower room in its entirety, and it now boasts a new and larger sink :) Kind regards, The Orange Roofs Team.

A beautiful cottage one minute's walk from the harbour, on a quiet back street. We had a fantastic break and can highly recommend this stylish property. Delightful touches with artwork from the local artists - we bought several pieces to take home. Lovely welcome pack on our arrival. It was great to have 2 bathrooms, and the washer/dryer. We will definitely be booking again.
