Camellia Cottage, St Ives, Cornwall

Traditional Granite Cottage with Sea Views From The Summer House And BBQ Deck


Excellent located self catering accommodation is St Ives sleeping up to 6 people in 3 bedrooms.

A beautiful double fronted granite cottage in the heart of St. Ives with stunning panoramic sea views from the decked garden and gazebo style studio.

Camellia Cottage is an old fisherman's cottage, less than one minute's walk from Porthminster beach in one direction, and the harbour and shops in the other.

The cottage is less than one minute's walk from the beautiful sandy Porthminster Beach and the town shops and harbour front are a couple of minutes walk away. The cottage has recently been refurbished to a very high standard using traditional materials, and still retains many original features. Sea glimpses can be seen from the front bedrooms, and magnificent views over St Ives bay can be enjoyed from the decked area. Unusual for St Ives, Camellia Cottage has a garden. This has been tiered in line with the cliff face, and provides a setting for daytime sunbathing, sundowners or a BBQ in the evening. The gazebo style studio overlooks panoramic views of St Ives bay, ideal for restful hours or transferring those sketches to canvas for those on a painting holiday. Unfortunately the number of steps up to the cottage and onward up to the studio through the tiered garden, does make the property unsuitable for anyone who has difficulty managing steps.

Camellia Cottage is just 2 minutes walk from St Ives railway station making trips by train to Penzance a fun day out. The proximity of the station also make a holiday by train to avoid holiday traffic a possibility. The bus station is also only a minute away, with many day trips available to other local attractions. For those with a horticultural bent The Lost Gardens of Helligan or The Eden Project are both well worth visiting, for those with more culinary tastes in mind, a trip to Padstow to test the cooking of Rick Stein would be tempting, or a tour of the award winning Callistick Cider Farm might appeal on a rainy day.

Camellia Cottage is ideally suited for two couples, with or without children.
