Property code: OC-PORTHI

Quaint on the outside, stylish on the inside - this original fisherman’s cottage in St Ives is the ideal bolthole for a romantic couple in search of some quality time together on the Cornwall coast. Sitting in the atmospheric Downalong area, there are plenty of romantic beaches to stroll within easy reach: Porthgwidden Beach (0.1 miles), Porthmeor Beach (0.3 miles) and Bamaluz Beach (0.1 miles). Or head to the town’s pretty harbour (0.3 miles) to browse the galleries, boutiques, cafes and pubs. When the tide goes out, a soft, sandy beach is revealed by the harbour, which is a great spot for swimming – or sharing ice cream. Alternatively, check out the artwork at the fascinating Tate St Ives (0.3 miles) - one of only four Tate galleries in the world – or hop on a boat at the harbour to visit the cute residents at Seal Island.

Step inside this lovely ground-floor apartment and you’ll find a spacious, light and bright lounge/diner with a feature fireplace – the perfect place to relax. You’ll find everything you need to cook up a romantic meal for two in the stylish but small kitchen, as well as an intimate dining area in the lounge/diner. When it’s time for bed, the chic bedroom is fresh and bright and features a skylight. A smart en-suite shower room completes the layout.

Whilst there is no outside space, the cottage’s position means that the harbour and beach provide all the space you need.

I had a lovely week in Porthia flat, the location is fantastic, just a few minutes from the beaches and shops. Its very cute and well-presented. Kitchen space is fairly limited, so probably not the best option if you plan on doing lots of cooking.
