Bungalow | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6

Key Info
  • Beach / lakeside relaxation
  • Nearest beach 0 km
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car not necessary
  • No pets allowed
  • Private garden

For the 2014 season, we will celebrate 12 highly successful years of letting (averaging a 30 week occupancy each year) with an extensive refurbishment of the property to include redecoration, and furnishings along with a cosy summer sleep-out for the children - creating more sleeping room inside for the summer months. Later in the year we hope to offer a new lounge in a newly created dormer to enable a dedicated dinging room next to the kitchen.

The bungalow is situated on a small private drive just above the town and close to the Tate Modern. It has sea views across St Ives Bay and Godrevy lighthouse, and is only a short walk to the town and beaches. It is warm, comfortable and cosy, with 2 double rooms )one with an en suite) and another room with bunk beds and a cot/z-bed option. With a large garden and ample parking, Avoca is the perfect place to come back to after a day out in St Ives or the surrounding area. Digital TV, DVD player, WiFi and a host of other appliances for your comfort.

St Ives is stunning with beautiful beaches and surroundings. It houses the Tate Modern, full of beautiful art - and the Barbara Hepworth museum as well. There is a wealth of local galleries in the maze of streets by the quayside. Not forgetting the famous St Ives pottery - with showrooms and workshop. There also are plenty of local sports with a great indoor pool within walking distance for rainy days. There are local horse riding schools and we are very close to the famous coastal path.

NOTE: no cats or dogs allowed (despite what one review suggests!!)

The West Country region

Cornwall is a stunning place with dramatic scenery, stunning coastline and lots of sunshine. Perfect for sports and such as climbing and surfing, and for those of you who like the cultural side of things, Cornwall is steeped in history, myth and legend - its people and heritage - who used to have their own autonomous region and language and King! They are friendly and welcoming these days!

Cornwall is lucky enough to have some of the best scenery in the country - the most beautiful coastline with sandy beaches, dotted with fishing villages. It boasts some of the best restaurants in the country - if eating out isn't your thing, why not try a Cornish pasty? There is a wealth of sports to do - in and out of the water from climbing to surfing. Come and see for yourself the best region of the whole of England!

"Ideal holiday cottage"

Well laid out, convenient and well-appointed single-storey cottage which felt quite spacious, although there were only two of us in a place for six ! Pretty good value.
Also had lovely garden and views.
Although a good walk from the centre of St Ives, it's well worth it for the convenience of having car parking, for loading/unloading and being free to come and go by car as you please. Maybe it's not such a bad thing to walk off the gorgeous pasties,ice-creams & scones freely available in the charmingly unspoiled village.
We would certainly consider staying here again.

"Home from Home"

Cozy cottage, quiet, a place we made our home for an extended time over winter. Avoca offers a welcome respite from a day of walking or other activities, gives a distant view of Godrevy Lighthouse, on a clear night shows the stars and in the daytime gives a front seat panorama of the ever-changing sky. The en suite bedroom is perfect for guests. Avoca served us well for our "home from home" stay in St Ives.

"We loved Cornwall!!"

We had a fantastic week at Avoca cottage. The cottage was in a quiet residential location but not far from the town centre. We are a family of 5 with three young children and we also went with Grandparents too and I would say that as the cottage is a bungalow it was suitable for both the old and the young. The cottage was clean and well equipped. Walking back to the cottage from the town there is a steep hill to consider, but there is always the bus. The kids loved the back garden too and this was big enough for them to play in after days out. Overall we loved Cornwall and have taken away some lovely memories.

"Dont book this cottage thinking that it has been refurbished - it hasnt"

The bungalow is clearly not in the condition described or suggested by the photos displayed on the website. Our experience of the accommodation was not a pleasant one, and as a result, we did not enjo… More

A fictitious and entirely unwarranted review. Also totally at odds with everyone else: there's just no pleasing some people. Why don't you pay £70/night each and stay in a hotel next time and you might find what you're after.

"Ideal Location-Basic and clean+ Good Value"

Nice large warm bungalow in a quiet out of the way part of St Ives. Bungalow is fine for families and those people who don't want 5* facilities. I would describe the bungalow as clean but needing tidying up around the edges. For example all the sofas are damaged by dogs/cats- eg leather flaking off. Floor boards had the odd wide gap. On the positive side the bungalow was lovely and warm and the showers(2) were fine. Location fine for us but it is a good walk into town- and uphill all the way back!! Beds good and we slept well. parking could be an issue in summer if you have more than 1 car as the parking space is only large enough for a mini sized car.

There actually is a garage available which you parked in front of: therefore there are two parking spaces at least (a smaller car can be fitted alongside to allow for 3 at a push). New furniture for 2014.
