The West Country region

Visit West Cornwall, the end of the land, with its ancient heritage and remarkable rock formations. You can't help but feel a sense of awe and wonder at the fascinating landscapes and coastal views from the famous bustling town of St Ives to the unspoilt wilds of the Lizard Peninsula.

Cornwall has a rich smuggling and wrecking history with tales of murder and deception. Along this coastline you can enjoy a Cornish ale or cider where smugglers once gathered or head out along the coastline to explore the caves that hid their contraband.

For an alternative experience visit the Minack Theatre, carved into the coastal cliff overlooking the glorious Atlantic Ocean. Exposed to the elements, it will be a moment of your life you'll never forget. The charms of the sea tempt a distracted glance from even the most gripping performance.

St Ives, well known for its brightness and clarity of atmosphere, even on a cloudy day has artist's flocking to the area to capture this beautiful town in watercolour and oils. Explore the many giftshops, galleries and great restaurants located throughout the cobbled streets.

For a great day trip stroll across the causeway or hop on a ferry to discover the medieval castle that is St Michaels Mount.

As has been the same for hundreds of year's fisherman still head out to sea daily from sheltered harbours of Mousehole and Mullion into the unpredictable seas of the English Channel and return back home with boats laden full of fresh fish to sell to the local restaurants.

St Ives

St Ives is a magnificent coastal Holiday resort famed for its safe beaches, the azure blue sea of the bay, its tiny cobbled streets and hidden corners waiting to be explored.

St Ives is a world famous art centre attracting artists because of the good natural light and is dotted with art galleries and studios, including the Tate Gallery, the Barbara Hepworth Museum at the Trewyn Studio and garden which were her former home.

Holiday Cottage rental in St Ives will appeal to all people who are looking for that special holiday destination with the perfect balance of sun, sea and sand.

Life in St Ives revolves around the harbour and the fishing trade helped it grow to prosperity. Much of that atmosphere is retained in the narrow alleyways and cottages of Downalong area. The small harbour, which dries at low tide, creating a beach, is the hub of activity in the town. The quay lined with numerous harbourside cafes, restaurants and shops selling art work and holiday souvenirs.

St Ives is famous for the narrow, cobbled streets decorated with clusters of brightly coloured flower displays, that beckon you to explore and wander through them - to discover their hidden delights and small hidden corners. The "Downalong" is the oldest part of St Ives, a maze of fishermen's cottages and narrow streets. It was originally built of a sandbank that linked "The Island" to the Cornish Mainland.

St Ives features a small grassy peninsula that separates the main harbour from Porthmeor beach. Known as "The Island", it was an Iron Age Promontory Hill Fort- set on a raised area of headland with panoramic views of across the bay towards Hayle and along the coast toward Newquay. The Island is a popular place to sit and relax and of course to enjoy the stunning views.

Enjoy walks around St Ives with its Mediterranean atmosphere or follow the coastal footpath around "The Island" with its chapel up on the hill and across Porthmeor out to Clodgy Point, or stroll towards Carbis Bay across the wooded hillside.

"great location but property fails to impress"

We (my husband and 3 children) stayed here for a week. The location was excellent , with only a minute's walk to the beach and the same to the shops. Communication from the owner and the welcome … More

Sorry you feel like this, this is our first ever bad review :-( The bathroom is being replaced this winter. We do advertise this property as a small 'Traditional Fisherman's Cottage' and the price is £200.00 a week cheaper than other cottages in St Ives to reflect the age of the property. Kind regards, Kirsty
