Garth Cottage Higher St Ives

£456 - £1256

This lovingly furnished two bedroom retreat is set in a rural location yet only a five minute drive into town, making it an ideal base for exploring St Ives. You can park the car, grab your towel and stroll to Porthminster beach in just 20 minutes. There are also really good bus links nearby. Garth Cottage is cosy, comfortable and private making it perfect for a romantic getaway but it's also a great retreat for families who can make the most of the lovely garden and large balcony with sea glimpses.

Garth Cottage has the best of both worlds; a restful and peaceful location yet if you fancy whetting your whistle at a traditional pub you are actually just a short stroll from The Cornish Arms and, for your home provisions, Tescos is either a 15 minute walk away or a few minutes' drive. This particular Tescos must have the best views in the country with a Costa Coffee boasting views of Godrevy lighthouse!
