A fantastic little gem , within walking distance to the beach , shops , restaurants etc in the amazing st Ives , yet tucked away so also very quiet with no Evening noise etc . We were a party of 2 adults , 2 children and a dog . The gated courtyard was perfect and safe for our dog to go out and do her business.

We arrived to a lovely bottle of fizz and dog treats which was a lovely touch after a long journey . Thank you .

Beautifully decorated throughout with all that you need for a home from home experience. Even a washing machine and dryer . We pre-booked the car park for the week as recommended by aspects and glad we did as we may have struggled to find a space . I will say storage upstairs is a little tight for 4 people but then again I do overpack haha .

We had a wonderful week and would definitely stay again . Thank you aspects as always .

Lovely cottage down a sweet little alley in superb location close to beach, pubs restaurants.
Comfy and cosy. Had a great week.

The cottage location was excellent. Seconds to Porthmeor Beach as well as the harbour, with some lovely wine bars within a stones throw. The cottage was clean and well equipped with a washing machine and dryer, as well as a dishwasher, and has a great rustic feel to it. There was also a nice outdoor terrace area which we used every day. The only downside was space. We were a family of four adults and a baby. It was a little on the tight side for storage, with one wardrobe between the two bedrooms and some of the other storage in the bedrooms taken up by other household items. It is perfect size for a couple. I would also advise arranging parking before arrival, we managed to get a spot on Barnoon car park which is a short hilly walk away after we had unloaded nearer to the cottage. We would definitely come back again.

Beautiful cottage in a perfect place in St Ives. Cottage is light and airy and has all the things you need for a perfect break.

Amazing holiday in St Ives staying at the beautiful Trecara. In a brilliant location and very quiet even though in a central location. We did not want to leave!!

Small, cosy cottage offering great location (apart from access by car), 50 metres from Porthmeor Beach and 50 metres from the main high street yet tucked away in a really quiet, historic corner of the old streets of St Ives. Cottage offers "rustic charm" rather than luxury comfort but it's location is so good, everything is right there on the doorstep to explore.

We enjoyed a lovely week staying at Trecara which is tucked away in a quiet courtyard but is within a few minutes walk of Porthmeor beach, the Tate and main shopping streets. The cottage was a good size, clean,comfortable and well equipped with everything needed for our stay. Plenty of seating in the living room area and large main bedroom & bathroom. Nice to have the choice of a bath or use of the over bath shower. We would definitely like to stay here again in the future.

Beautiful cottage in perfect location for all St Ives. Characterful yet modern. I would love to return.

Trecara is a beautiful property set in the heart of The Downalong area, perfectly situated for easy access to Porthmeor, Porthgwidden, Fore Street and the harbour. Stunningly decorated and well equipped for a wonderful holiday. As a very regular St Ives visitor, I would highly recommend this property.

Wonderful cottage in superb central location but still really quiet and restful. Loved the quirky decor and really looked forward to coming back and snuggling on the cosy sofas in the evening! Will defo be returning, can’t wait!

Excellent service & the cottage was very clean & comfortable in a prime location I would highly recommend Trecara!

Perfect holiday cottage, great location, well equipped, comfortable sofas & beds..... will definitely be rebooking..... my 3 year old even asked if we could stay in it forever!!

We had a lovely week in Trecara. The location is superb , just minutes from the beach and the hustle and bustle of Fore Street yet really quiet inside . It was great to have the outside space for post beach drinks. Having a bath as well as shower was a bonus , the cottage was spotless and well equipped.

Wonderful location minutes from both Porthmeor Beach and the Harbour.

An absolutely stunning little cottage in the most perfect location. Can’t fault it and we will absolutely be back.

Gorgeous cosy cottage perfectly situated close to the beach and town. Loved it!

Supreme Location. Extremely quite area.
