About Us

Tim and Roz started Cherished Cottages in 2011 with the aim of representing only the highest calibre luxury properties in the heart of St Ives. Starting with two cottages in the famous Downalong area, we now have a collection of handpicked 5-star standard properties each offering something special, whether it is a spectacular sea view, fantastic location with parking, or the opportunity to stay in a traditional fisherman’s cottage.

Over the last couple of years the ‘Cherished family’ has been extended with the addition of Sarah, Christine, Amy, Rachel and Jo, and each member of the team has their part to play in offering the highest customer service; this high level of personal service is backed up with our easy to search website and a booking system that allows you to book at a time convenient for you, day or night! Of course we also love to speak to our customers too, so we are available in the office 6 days a week, and we have an emergency contact number for those issues that just cannot wait till office hours.

The area of St Ives is wonderful and the Cherished team know this as we all live here. We genuinely wouldn’t be able to think of anywhere more beautiful; with award winning beaches, a bustling harbour, top quality restaurants, lovely independent shops, beautiful art, and of course, the best pasties in the land!

Take your time planning your holiday, and if you need any additional information, please give us a call. There is so much to see and do in Cornwall and we are here to ensure you have the perfect base to do it all from.

Be sure, be happy, be Cherished

Cherished Cottages (and their handyman!) remained friendly, helpful and professional throughout our booking, stay and afterwards too.

Including kindly not shouting at us when our younger dog ate the TV remote control (which we replaced!). Thank you CC! We recommend you and your beautiful properties to all!
