Brand new to our portfolio is a newly refurbished fisherman’s cottage with breathtaking panoramic Harbour views situated in the historic Downalong area of St Ives. This Grade II listed building has wonderfully light and airy interiors throughout and is just a short walk to the Harbour, beaches shops, restaurants and galleries that St Ives has to offer. The cottage is perfect for family’s or parties of 6 with plenty of room to enjoy good food and wine whilst watching the tide come in and out all day long, and what’s more? You can bring your small/medium sized, well behaved four-legged friend with you!

Porthgwel is a beautiful, well appointed slate hung and granite cottage set over three floors. The entrance is on road level and will take you to the ground floor of the cottage where you will find the snug room/double sofa bed, a family sized bathroom with a shower bath and a balcony for alfresco dining. The 1st floor is one big open plan room where you immediately come up the stairs into the lounge and the sea views, following through past the dining area into the well appointed kitchen. Finally the 2nd floor hosts the master bedroom, the twin room and the shower room.  This property does not provide any additional children’s safety equipment.
