Kittiwake is a much loved charming property, fully refurbished for 2014, reflecting the character of a cornish cottage, close to the centre of St Ives. It has stunning uninterrupted views over the harbour yet is tucked away away from the hustle and bustle of the main streets. Each floor has the iconic panoramic views over St Ives bay, the harbour and the island. More spacious than the typical St Ives cottage it is light and airy and has been recently decorated to a high standard. The cottage is perfect for couples, families and groups as it comfortably sleeps 6 and is fully equipped as a holiday home.

We have a kiddie pack too which we can have available for your stay: travelcot, high chair, night lights, bed rail, and a toddler step and nonslip bath mat.

You enter the property through the gate which leads up through the garden, with sea views, to the front door. Through the stable door is the hallway and off this is the comfortable lounge with fireplace, comfy leather sofas and a bay window with views out across St Ives. A seperate dining room leads to a secluded patio garden at the rear - perfect for morning coffee and the papers. Adjacent is the kitchen which has all the things you need for a great holiday and even a porthole window! The cottage has wooden floors throughout and a tiled floor in the kitchen.

Upstairs on the first floor is a comfortable family bathroom featuring a restored cast iron roll top bath. A cosy king room which has an ensuite bathroom featuring a victorian style shower. Please note that the access to the shower is restricted to 14" so may not be suitable for those with a larger girth. The comfortable master bedroom at the front has delightful views over the bay, harbour and the island. This room can be set up as a twin or a superking bedroom.

Nestled away on the top floor in the eaves, is this cottage secret hideaway for adults and children alike. A third bedroom tucked away with twin beds. To reach, climb up through a small door way and a winding staircase with rope bannister to views across the harbour that will take your breath away. Wake up and watch the comings and goings or simply relax with your feet up on the window seat and enjoy the view whatever the weather.

The house is tucked away up above the main streets and can been seen as the 'blue' house from almost anywhere on the harbour beach. One of just two cottages located on their own it is just minutes to the galleries, shops and award winning restaurants of St Ives. The nearest beach is the large sandy beach of Porthminster and the harbour beaches - just a short 5 min stroll. Porthmeor for surfing and Porthhwidden another 5 mins further on. The cottage is ideal for families, art lovers who want to browse the Galleries and the Tate, and walkers who are looking for a base to explore the coastal paths. The nearest parking is also just 5 mins away. Even in the hustle and bustle of August the cottage is a quiet retreat.

Prices can be negotiable so dont hestitate to contact us anytime.

The cottage is equipped with WiFi, Books, games, DVDs and beach toys so there is something for everyone.

The West Country region

Cornwall has some of the best holiday destinations in the Uk at anytime of the year and St Ives is the jewel in the crown. Voted the UKs best seaside resort year after year.

Cornwall enjoys England's mildest climate. Spring arrives early & Summer lingers. With so much to see & do It is super place to enjoy a holiday regardless of the time of year.

As well as Cornwall being England's surfing capital, there is loads to explore in this beautiful region by car or bike and there are plenty of walks to be enjoyed too. The Eden Project in St Austell is a great day out and is a must see.

St Ives

St Ives allure is that it has literally something for everyone. If you want golden sandy beaches - there is not one, but four of the most beautiful beaches in the UK. Porthmeor for surfing and sunbathing, the harbour for boats and busy, Porthminster - safe family and golden and Porthgwidden - a little secret treasure of a beach .If you're an art lover there are over 40 galleries to see, including the Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum.

For food spolit for choice, whether it's Vegetarian, Indian, Chinese, Mexican, Italian, Pizzas and Pasta or the most popular choice has to be the Mediterranean style of cuisine providing the freshest of local seafood. Make sure you have breakfast at the Portminster Beach Cafe run by Nathan Outlaw - simply stunning.

Full of fantastic shops St Ives has it all.

Not forgetting the miles of rugged costal paths, scenic railway lines, working fishing boats and maze of cobbled street winding through this jewel of Cornwall.
