Puffin Cottage is a pretty Cornish cottage that offers a modern twist on the traditional St Ives fisherman's cottage. Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, yet just ten minutes from the bustling seaside town of St Ives by car or train, the cottage is perfect for a luxury family summer break or as a couple's retreat. A couple of minutes walk away is the newly opened Scarlet wine merchant, cafe and deli, great for a coffee and croissant for breakfast or picking up a bottle of wine to go with dinner. There are also excellent English pubs within walking distance, serving traditional food with pretty beer gardens. If you are a keen birdwatcher, the cottage is situated on the edge of the Hayle estuary, famous for the wide variety of birds that can be spotted on its shores.

The cottage is furnished to a high standard. Downstairs there is a well-equipped kitchen with dining area and leading off a spacious lounge is a conservatory with another dining area opening out onto a patio, perfect for barbecues and summer dining. Upstairs there are two comfortable bedrooms and a family bathroom. PuffinCottage has wi-fi internet access, meaning you need never be out of touch. A welcome pack containing Cornish teas, locally-produced organic soaps and fresh local flowers is provided on your arrival to get your holiday off to a great start.

The Cornwall region

Cornwall is a magical mix of golden beaches and rocky coves, towering cliffs and lonely moorland, and friendly towns and villages. West Cornwall is a magnificent peninsula with 36 miles of spectacular coastline which runs from St Ives in the north to Penzance in the south. The breathtaking coastline is blessed with rugged cliffs, golden sands, crystal clear blue waters and is dotted with old tin mines. The stunning scenery can be enjoyed by the many walks along the south west coastal path.


St Ives is one of the most popular Cornish holiday towns, loved down the generations for its great beaches and warm welcome. It is particularly popular with artists for its unique natural light and and is famous for the Tate Gallery which houses Barbara Hepworth sculptures. St Ives has plenty of independent shops and art galleries down its winding cobblestone streets and the use of local produce is favoured in its many fine restaurants and cafes. Lelant is a pretty village that borders the Hayle estuary and is well connected to St Ives by railway. The Lelant Saltings station is the official Park and Ride stop for visitors to St Ives and is only 5 minutes walk from Puffin Cottage. The frequent train arrives in St Ives in 8 minutes, with some breathtaking coastal views along the short train journey. A 'Day Ranger' ticket costs from £2.00 per person and can be used all day long. Further afield, but still within easy reach, are the The Eden Project, St. Michael's Mount, Land's End and the Minack Theatre (built into the cliffs at Porthcurno), amongst many other attractions in the area.

"Ideally situated..."

The cottage was clean and comfortable and a perfect base for exploring the area. Having the trains and local buses on your doorstep meant we didn't have to constantly go out in the car. A 25 mins… More

"Great location for the train to St Ives to save money on parking"

We had a lovely stay here. It was great that the kitchen was well equipped especially with the little but important things like washing up liquid, tea towels, dishwasher tablets and bin liners. It was very clean & homely too.

Yes Puffin Cottage is ideally located for hopping on the train to St. Ives. You can leave the car safely at Puffin Cottage.
