    “The cottage was lovely, just what we needed.”

    Only problem is getting off the drive as you said, just a suggestion if possible to get a mirror put up by the council on the bend , so you can see what is coming down & up the road.

The property

Tucked away on the outskirts of St. Ives, Cornwall, is this wonderfully presented former miners’ cottage, Sanctuary Cottage.

Enjoying a fantastic location just a short drive away from a wealth of beautiful beaches, and a contemporary interior with all a couple could need for a relaxing getaway, Sanctuary Cottage is your perfect choice for a memorable escape to Cornwall.

The property benefits from an off-road parking space on a shared driveway, as well as its own private garden with furniture, ideal for when you want to dine alfresco over your favourite tipple.

Step inside, where you will find a fully-equipped kitchen, where you can rustle up your finest dishes, ready to enjoy at the table over a celebratory bottle of fizz in the light and airy conservatory/dining area.

After dinner, retreat to the sitting room, where you will find plush seating, including a sofa bed, along with a Smart TV and a crackling woodburning stove for those chiller evenings.

Follow the stairs up to the first floor, where you can wash away the day in the sleek bathroom, complete with bath and overhead shower, before catching your slumber in the beautifully decorated king-size bedroom.

Explore the bustling town, where you can sample local ales at The Mine Brewing, treat your loved one to a meal at Halestown Inn, Beer & Bird, The Firehouse and The Seafood Café, create your own souvenir at The Leach Pottery, tour the Tate and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Studio, take a leisurely stroll around the harbour, or spend a day on the golden sands at one of the many beaches.

For a memorable daytrip, why not embark on a fishing charter or a sea safari?

Next stop is Penzance, where you will find the attractions of the Penlee House Gallery & Museum, the Jubilee Pool, a lively promenade, and a ferry offering trips out to the beautiful Isles of Scilly.

Continue onto Marazion, where you can visit the renowned St Michael’s Mount, or venture further afield to visit the popular Minnack Theatre in Porthcurno, the Poldark famous Botallack near Boscean and the Geevor Tin Mine Museum in Pendeen.
