  • Charming fisherman’s cottage in the quaint Downalong area of St Ives
  • Fresh, crisp interiors that create a stylish and relaxing atmosphere
  • Romantic bolthole by the sea for couples who enjoy being in the heart of town

Property code: OC-PORTHI

This sweet home-away-from-home in the heart of St Ives makes the perfect bolthole for couples looking for a traditional Cornish getaway. Spend your days strolling around the town’s cute, cobbled streets - popping into galleries, boutiques, and eateries - before heading down to one of St Ives’ iconic sandy beaches for a spot of sunbathing and splashing in the turquoise waters. In the evenings, return to your cosy bolthole to cook up a storm in the stylish kitchen, followed by a movie night on the sofa.

The ground-floor apartment is in a quaint fisherman’s cottage. However, once inside, you’ll discover a sleek and stylish living space, with contemporary furniture and accessories. The spacious lounge/kitchen/diner is bright and airy, with a sumptuous sofa to snuggle up on to watch the Smart TV and a cute dining table by the window for sharing romantic dinners for two. When it’s time for bed, retire to the relaxing double bedroom, which has a handy en-suite shower room. There is no outside space with this property, but with the harbour and sandy beaches within 500 metres, you’ll have plenty of scenic spots to stretch your legs and fill your lungs with sea air.

The cottage is set in the town’s old fishing quarter, and you’ll be surrounded by a fabulous selection of independent restaurants, many serving delicious, fresh seafood. A short stroll from the cottage brings you to the historic harbour (500 metres), where you can catch boat trips to go wildlife watching along the coast or visit Seal Island to marvel at the colony of grey seals. There’s also a lovely beach here, which is popular with bathers. Other nearby beaches include Porthgwidden and Porthmeor, both within 500 metres.

I had a lovely week in Porthia flat, the location is fantastic, just a few minutes from the beaches and shops. Its very cute and well-presented. Kitchen space is fairly limited, so probably not the best option if you plan on doing lots of cooking.
