Pastimes Cottage is a three-storey town house right in the heart of St Ives. This property, although only minutes away from the bustling town centre, manages to feel detached and secluded. Set back from the street you enter through a charming courtyard garden, with mature tropical planting, that serves as a calm oasis from the street for an evening cocktail or morning coffee. Luxuriously appointed throughout and ideal for families or a group of friends, the sandy beaches are only 5 minutes’ walk away. Local amenities are even closer and this property has the rare bonus of dedicated off-street parking (for one car) only 100 metres away. If you like a holiday home to be just that, then look no further than Pastimes Cottage for homely comforts and a perfect location, with an added touch of sophistication.

There’s an entrance porch which leads through to a luxurious, open-plan lounge/dining room with light carpets, squashy sofas and a statement piece dining table. (Due to the sophisticated décor only children over the age of 10 or babes in arms are allowed). Three elegantly-designed bedrooms – all with double or king beds – and three bathrooms makes this house the perfect place for family celebrations.

Our stay at Pastimes Cottage was idyllic. It is such a welcoming space to relax in but also has a luxurious feel, to make holidaying there a real treat. It is a two minute walk to the sefont and with so many wonderful restaurants and shops literally around the corner, we couldn't fault either the cottage or the location. We will definitely look to go back in the near future!

Past Customer,

This property is excellent - you won't be disappointed! It has luxury fittings and furnishings throughout and is spotlessly clean. Very close to town so you can walk everywhere - and yet it is quiet. Parking space nearby. Would highly recommend this cottage to anyone.

Past Customer,

The property is very well-appointed, represents excellent value for money and is in an ideal location in St Ives.

Past Customer,

From the moment we arrived to fresh scones in the kitchen to the time we had to leave we felt like we were at home. The cottage was great for all three generations of our family with lovely bedrooms, a great kitchen and superb facilities all round. It was a breath of fresh air to be able to walk around all of the town as the cottage was so central and not up any steep hills.

Past Customer,

A great cottage for six in an ideal location in St Ives with a high standard of fittings and facilities. The use of a car parking space nearby is an added bonus and is a quite large one for Cornwall in our experience!

Past Customer,

This is the second time we have stayed at Pastimes and we absolutely love it. A lot of effort has been put in by the owners to create a really homely feel for all to enjoy and relax within. The location is superb with it being so close to everything, set behind a beautiful front garden that leads out to the local amenities. The fact it has an allocated parking space is a real bonus nand incredibly convenient for obvious reasons. All of the bedrooms have so much space within, the kitchen is very classy with all the appliances you could wish for. We have stayed at a number of places in St Ives over the years, but this cottage has been by far the best!

Past Customer,


St Ives is one of Cornwall's top destinations and a beautiful seaside town where visitors can enjoy a traditional beach holiday with a twist. It's easy to understand why the town has been attracting painters, sculptors and ceramists for decades with its stunning scenery and natural quality of light- one of only four Tate Galleries in the world is located here in the heart of the town. The town itself arcs around the working harbour- the heart of the historic fishing community. You could lose yourself for hours in the charming cobbled streets which are crammed with gift and craft shops, art galleries, top notch restaurants and welcoming local pubs- a real treasure trove just waiting to be explored!

St Ives also has four fabulous beaches, Porthmeor, Porthgwidden, Harbour beach and Porthminster which between them offer miles of golden sand and hours of building sand castles, playing in the rock pools and other family friendly activities. Dogs are welcomed out of season. Throughout the year, St Ives has a busy event calendar including the St Ives Food & Drink Festival in May and a Music & Arts Festival in September.
