Book

The Flying Pilchard is a beautiful retreat for two in the centre of St Ives, tucked away in the Downalong area. You are literally a one minute's walk from Porthmeor Beach, where you can surf and sunbathe to your heart's content and even be able to nip home for a cuppa whenever you please. The interior is crisp and fresh, yet cosy and comfortable. You'll be in an ideal spot to explore the coastline with the many beautiful walks on your doorstep and you can even bring along your pet pooch so they can enjoy them too. The Flying Pilchard is an impressive bolt hole for a romantic escape by the sea with your loved one.

You are bound to catch some of the best sunsets around on Porthmeor Beach. The property is also within touching distance of a small, very well stocked local shop if you need to grab any provisions including a bottle of your favourite tipple, to sit back and relax with after a day of adventuring. Although close to lots of amenities, the location of the cottage is set back so that it is quiet and secluded.

This cottage is very comfortable and clean, everything was perfect, highly recommend it.

April 2017

The Flying Pilchard is light and spacious, equipped to a high standard. It is perfectly positioned for The Tate, the town and several of the beaches. A real bonus is Norway Stores, quaint but amazingly well stocked and only 50 yards away.
