  • “On the whole the cottage was lovely.”

    Very clean and tastefully decorated and very well equipped. ...

    Very clean and tastefully decorated and very well equipped. We were very disappointed to find the Aga had not been turned on for our arrival. Especially as it was mid October. Not only was the cottage freezing cold it meant we were unable to cook a meal. The double bed in the master bedroom was extremely uncomfortable. So much so we had to swap around. In total 3 different people slept in the bed and found it unsatisfactory. Like wise the single bed. The only 2 decent beds were in the twin bedroom. They were extremely comfortable, however we had requested they were joined together, but this didn’t get done. I feel more should be said in the listing about the location of the property. Clearly, a car is needed to get around, however parking is an issue. There are no directions for people arriving by train, as we did.

The property

This end-of-terrace, character cottage is situated in the picturesque town of St Ives, on the beautiful Cornish coastline.

Approximately one mile from the world-class beaches at St Ives and Carbis Bay, Knill House is perfect for families seeking coastal escapades.

Step inside this charming cottage and discover a cosy sitting room, offering a place to relax and unwind after a day of hiking, while the woodburning stove offers a gentle warmth and the Smart TV provides entertainment.

There is also a small snug room where you can getaway from the group and find entertainment with a good book, board game, TV or the XBox.

From here, patio doors lead out to the garden where alfresco dining is recommended, or sit out on the wooden chairs and take in the coastal breeze and floral garden.

When you want to have a hand at home-cooking, rather than sampling the fine restaurants of St Ives, head to the country-style kitchen where the AGA range cooker awaits, along with a pretty dining area where mealtimes can be enjoyed.

Whisk off to the bedrooms as you tire, offering a king-size, twin (zip and link to super king-size bed on request) and single, dressed in neutral tones and fresh white bed linen.

Serving the bedrooms is the bathroom which boasts a bath and shower over, great for a lazy soak or a quick rinse.

Acquaint yourself with your surroundings as you take a stroll in St Ives, winding through quaint streets and narrow lanes before reaching the quayside, offering a great selection of shops and eateries.

Soak up culture and art in the famous Tate St Ives, and marvel at the sculptures in the Barbara Hepworth Museum & Sculpture Park.

Lace up your walking boots and join the beautiful South West Coast Path, where you can catch glimpses of tall granite cliffs, hidden coves and fascinating wildlife along the way.

However you choose to spend your time, return each evening to the comfort and character of Knill House.

About the location


Penzance 6 miles.

One of Cornwall's prettiest harbour towns, St Ives offers narrow streets, tight-packed cottages nestling around the quayside, the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth museum, fabulous beaches, superb shops, a thriving community of artists, great pubs and restaurants and much more. With its semi Bohemian lifestyle and romantic air, it's easy to see why this is the county's premier holiday resort. The surrounding area has much for the visitor to see and do with abundant wildlife, fabulous coastal walks, top quality surfing and the Celtic mysteries of the Land's End Peninsula are all within easy reach. A superb destination!
