Hidden amongst hundreds of old fisherman's cottages in the most fun part of St Ives town is this quirky cottage. St Ives, a beautiful and busy fishing port, sits amidst five sandy beaches: Carbis Bay, St Ives Harbour, Porthgwidden, Porthkidney and the closest to Shell Cottage - Porthmeor. All are popular with both watersports enthusiasts and families alike offering great surfing and coastal walks. The town's narrow and cobbled streets offer galleries, craft shops, surf shops, many top quality cafes and restaurants, and artists' studios including The Barbara Hepworth museum and Sculpture Garden, The Penwith Gallery showcasing local artists the Tate Modern Gallery and Bernard Leach Pottery. St Ives has always attracted writers and artists, including Virginia Woolf and D.H.Lawrence. On the first Monday of each February, the 'Hurling the Silver Ball' custom takes place. The St Ives May Day festival is a modern revival of customs that were at one time common throughout the west of Cornwall.
