    “We had a fantastic week and the cottage was perfect, well presented, tea, coffee and milk on arrival and a great location - perfect for the town and beach.”

    My only feedback is a bigger sign for the cottage or a bit more prominent would help finding it - we would have never found it in the dark, it was only because of a comment I had read that it was opposite the shop - which is super handy by the way.! Overall though a great base to get out and explore St. Ives.

The property

Rose Cottage perched at the top of Porthmeor Hill, a delightful semi-detached cottage just 200 metres from the surfing beach Porthmeor and 300 metres from the town centre.

This exceptional self-catering cottage is the perfect base for up to six people to come together for a holiday filled with breath-taking scenery, sublime beaches and memorable walks along the South West Coastal Path.

Enter into the property and be welcomed into the sitting room, where you can snuggle up on the sofa, with the characterful stone fireplace housing a woodburning, creating a cosy ambiance during the winter months.

Admire the photos of old St Ives within this room, giving you a small insight into the past of this wonderful town before making your way into the heart of the home, the kitchen/diner.

The Range cooker takes centre stage before all of the other appliances that are arranged in a contemporary assortment, certain to encourage a spot of cooking before regrouping with your loved ones to enjoy some catch up time, accompanied with a well-deserved glass of something chilled.

In the summer months, you can look forward to heading out onto the private courtyard area to indulge in a spot of alfresco dining, whilst enjoying the final moments of sunshine before you retire to bed.

Afterwards, head upstairs to catch your rest in one the three bedrooms, each one boasting an immaculate interior design with a refreshing colour palette, good storage and their own TVs, ideal for those lazy mornings snuggled under the plush duvets.

Choose been a king-size bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, a super-king-size bedroom with zip link beds that can be made into two singles and a twin bedroom, designed to ensure a flexible sleeping arrangement for groups of couples, friends and families.

Better acquaint yourself with your surroundings as you take a short stroll into the centre of St Ives, winding your way through the narrow lanes before reaching quayside, home to a plethora of shops and places to eat and drink.

Whilst here, be sure to make some time to explore the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth Museum, before soaking up the sunshine at one of the town beaches, including the lush, golden stretch of Porthmeor Beach, St Ives’ most premier beach.

Popular with surfers and water sports enthusiasts alike due to the south-westerly gales it enjoys, this beautiful, Blue Flag destination has lifeguards on duty from Easter to October, is flanked by two, rugged headlands, and boasts magnificent, awe-inspiring views that gaze out upon the brilliant blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

You can also head to the nearby, picturesque Porthgwidden Beach, where you can stroll along with your canine companion by your side, you are sure to find the perfect beach.

After enjoying the delights of St Ives, lace up your walking shoes and discover the South West Coastal Path, where you can catch glimpses of tall granite cliffs, hidden coves and fascinating wildlife along the way.

Alternatively, take your car further afield to visit the landmark attractions of Land's End, St Michael's Mount and The Minack Theatre, each one promising to be excellent days out for the whole family.

At the end of each day, look forward to returning to Rose Cottage for a relaxing evening.
