The property

Just over 1 mile from the beautiful beaches and harbour at iconic St Ives, this delightful cottage is cocooned in a leafy nook, perfectly placed to explore some of Cornwall's most desirable destinations. Nestled in glorious lush countryside, Gillyflower Cottage sits aside a gaggle of pretty dwellings at the end of a tranquil rural haven, surrounded by trees and greenery. Picturesque St Ives can be reached within 10 minutes by car or an enjoyable 30 minute stroll, or less via the footpath. There are excellent eateries, traditional inns and coffee houses on the waterfront overlooking the boats in the harbour and its beach. Porthmeor Beach, with golden sands, is the second largest of St Ives four beaches with surf school, seasonal lifeguard patrol and cafe/bar. The more sheltered beach of Porthgwidden lies the other side of the headland known as The Island. The twisting cobbled alleys and lanes of St Ives are home to an abundance of galleries, gift shops and boutiques. Just a short walk from the heart of the town is the train station, where one of the most spectacular coastal journeys with breathtaking views along the north Cornish coast to Penzance can be enjoyed. Ramblers and dogs will delight in exploring the south west coastal path to Hayle and round to Godrevy Lighthouse and beyond, or spend an afternoon at the West Cornwall Golf Club, just three miles away. Legendary Land's End, lively Penzance and mystical St Michael's Mount are all easily reached hot-spots. Enchanting Gillyflower Cottage is the ideal romantic escape or family bolthole, with toasty wood burner and squashy sofas for guaranteed comfort. The dinky enclosed garden at the rear is a great spot for a barbecue, and has storage for beach gear after a day's fun in the sand and surf.
