Property code: OC-FARR

Enjoy a romantic getaway in this beautiful stone cottage. Located in the bustling seaside town of St Ives, you can enjoy the tranquillity of the property or the energy of the surrounding area with your partner.

Most of the ground floor is dedicated to an open-plan living space, where you’ll find a dining area, kitchen and lounge. There’s a gas log-burner-effect fire to make evenings cosier and a window seat overlooking the sea, a lovely spot to enjoy your morning cup of coffee. You’ll also see a shower room. Head upstairs to the bedroom, completed with a comfortable bed and full of wooden finishes for a simple, homely feel. To the front of this cottage is an enclosed garden with stunning views of the coast, and out the back is a patio with a table and chairs for romantic evenings as the sun draws in.

St Ives is a town with a lot to offer, plus you’ll find lots to do further out, too. You’ll be about 200 metres from the centre of town, with plenty of places to shop, get drinks and explore. Try Porthmeor Beach (1 mile) for surfing or try Porthminster Beach (0.5 miles) for equally beautiful views. Soak in culture with visits to Tate St Ives (1 mile) and Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden (1 mile). For bracing coastal walks, take a trip to National Trust Godrevy (10 miles) or Land’s End (18 miles), which was once known as Belerion. This translates as “place of the sun” in ancient Greek, so we know that people have been enjoying this picturesque place for thousands of years. Finish your holiday with a day at St Michael’s Mount, a unique island accessible by footpath or ferry, where you’ll find a medieval castle.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Farr Cottage. The cottage itself is cosy and charming and in an excellent location. It has everything required for a short stay - from utensils to scrabble! the cottage was lovely and clean and has it's own parking space. It wasn't cold enough for us to use the fire, so we will definitely be back to visitRead more again! Hide

The low score for "equipment" reflects a) that wi-fi is hopeless - so tv isn't 'smart' and mobile ability is severely limited and b) whilst the dimensions of the parking space are correct, if the adjacent space (3) is occupied, it requires either reversing into the space from the main road or reversing out of it onto the main road. The proximity ofRead more a blind bend makes either manoeuvre potentially dangerous. During our visit (out of season) the issue was happily resolved by the people at the guest house kindly letting us use one of their spaces. Hide
