A unique and beautifully designed artist's cottage full of original and interesting features, with an idyllic, sunny and secluded raised garden. It is situated in a quiet lane close to the Barbara Hepworth and Trewyn gardens, and is two minutes stroll from the main shopping street, restaurants, and sandy beaches. It has two good sized bedrooms, comfortably accommodating four people. All of the windows have sea views and there is a sunny conservatory for dining in, and a hand made woodburner for winter evenings.
The beautiful, garden is both south and west facing. It looks out towards the harbour and is bordered by many beautiful flowers and interesting sub tropical plants. There is a curved, raised deck, also looking down to the harbour, which is a magical place to have breakfast on sunny mornings, or to lie out in the hammock under the tree which grows through it.
The cottage contains original artwork by various artists including the owner who works from one of the Porthmeor studios in St.Ives. Together with her husband who is a carpenter, they lovingly look after the cottage and it's garden themselves.The cottage has been stylishly renovated with a light and airy open plan feel with many sky lights and different levels giving it a distinctive and original feel. The many hand made features include the unusual woodburner and fireplace, hand-made tiled worktops and natural rose coloured slate floor in the kitchen, wooden shutters on the bedroom windows and hand-crafted woodwork throughout.

The Cornwall region
Cornwall is England's magical county, surrounded by miles of stunning wild coastline. It is home to many legends, Pixies, Pirates, smugglers, and standing stones. Wild and rugged coastline on the North, and gentle woods, valleys and thatched cottages on the South, it is surrounded by gorgeous beaches, many of them famous for surfing.
St. Ives is a pretty fishing town on the far South West tip of England, surrounded on three sides by spectacular white sandy beaches. It's world class restaurants are situated either in the pretty cobbled streets, or in beautiful settings on one of the beaches looking over the sea.
Famous for it's artists and home to many galleries including one of The Tate Galleries right on Porthmeor Beach, St.Ives was home to artists such as Ben Nicholson, Patrick Heron and Barbara Hepworh. Still a thriving artist's community, it is culturally rich, and home to The Hepworth Sculpture Garden, the Famous Leach Pottery. There are many diverse attractions nearby such as the world famous Eden Project with it's tropical and Mediterranean Biomes just half an hours drive away, and St. Michael's Mount 6 miles away on the South coast amongst many more.
St.Ives is a wonderful place to visit in either summer or winter, and the stunning beaches and coastline all around Cornwall are beautiful at any time of year.
