1 Carnglaze Place
Mount Zion, St Ives

£440 - £956 per week

Tucked away behind the harbour front of the beautiful town of St Ives, is an ideally positioned bolthole, perfect for couples or friends, who want to be within a short walking distance to the shops, bars, boutiques and restaurants that the town has to offer. The cottage has the benefit of zip and link beds, which makes it ideal for a romantic breakaway or a base for two friends to explore from. The shower room, being the first room as you walk in the front door, comes in very handy after spending the day at one of the five, nearby, golden, sandy, beaches, whether you've spent your time surfing, sunbathing or paddleboarding. After an evening stroll under the lights along the Wharf, and a stop or two for your favourite tipple, your evenings can be spent getting cosy on the sofa with your partner and your pooch while planning what tomorrow has in store.

Please note: There is a refurbishment project taking place at a property neighbouring property which requires scaffolding for the external works. Activities can be seen and heard from within the property. Please get in touch with our Customer Services department with any questions or queries before booking.

Holidays in Mount Zion

Ideal for guests looking to stay in the very heart of St Ives, Mount Zion is full of character and is perfectly situated only a few steps from the Harbour beach where you will find many galleries, shops and restaurants. Immerse yourself in traditional Cornish life, strolling the cobbled streets and watching as the fishing boats bob into the harbour, bringing in catch of the day!

This charming corner of St Ives is adjacent to Downalong and the iconic harbourside, known as The Wharf, and offers the best of both worlds: serene holiday cottages boasting traditional charm, yet only a few steps from the Harbour beach and the plethora of wharfside amenities. 

Did you know...

Mount Zion is where St Ives harbour joins the old fisherman's quarter?

Just enjoyed a lovely week at 1 Carnglaze Place, St. Ives. It is perfectly located in the heart of St.Ives and close to all the beaches/harbour/pubs/restaurants and shops. A spacious 1 bedroomed dog friendly cottage, just off Wharf Road, the property is accessed by several steps up to the door which leads into a practical area for coats and boots with a shower room and toilet. The living room/kitchen and upstairs bedroom were very clean, spacious and well equipped with a lovely homely feel and a fantastic king sized bed to ensure a great nights sleep. Looking forward to visiting St. Ives again next year!

Comfy, very clean & cosy accommodation in excellent location. Would definitely recommend and will return.

Just a great cottage in a super location

We absolutely loved our stay at 1 Carnglaze. It was perfect for us and our dog, Rusty. We weren’t sure what to expect from the apartment as photos can be deceiving but we were thrilled with the size, layout and decor. There was a really homely feel to the apartment and lots of touches that made it feel special. We loved the entrance way which enabled us to take our sandy shoes off without treading sand through the apartment. The bathroom was lovely and airy with a good shower. The sitting room was spacious and light with two sash windows allowing fresh air. L The kitchen was well equipped and tastefully done. The bedroom was spacious and had the most wonderfully comfortable and super sized bed. There was a lovely touch from the housekeepers where we had been left a bottle milk and some chocolate along with a contact number should we need them. We will definitely book 1 Carnglaze again. Thanks you.

Great place to get away and relax. Very good value for money.

Lovely little cottage just off the harbour front, excellent location, fully fitted with everything you need, furniture all to a high standard with super comfy large bed.

Would definitely use again.

Well appointed very comfortable

1 Carnglaze Place is perfect. We usually stay the other side of the harbour so it was great to be located on the island to explore there. The property is in an excellent location and the decor is clean, contemporary and comfortable. Will definitely go back.

We had the most amazing Christmas and New Year break, the property was so comfortable and warm. The bed and linen was so soft it was a struggle to get out of bed each morning. The kitchen had every utensil you needed to cook especially a Christmas dinner, it was spotlessly clean and just a few steps from the harbour front, can’t wait to book again.

A nice place to stay but there is room for improvement. Noisy neighbors and the feeling of no privacy. I liked the space and the decor. The Flat was quite spacious considering where it was located. I also enjoyed a nice comfy king sized bed to myself.

We are sorry to hear this. We have never had any previous feedback on noisy neighbours before, though it is in a very central location with many properties in very close proximity. There had been some renovation works to a flat below, earlier in the year that we had feedback on, but this is completed, so thank you for letting us know. We will keep an eye on that, but hopefully it was just a one-off noisy week, with many properties in that area being holiday lets and having different guests in each week. We hope that you still had a fantastic time here. Tanya, Customer Services

Great little cottage

Great location but extremely difficult to find parking close by. Was a struggle to get the car close enough to drop off our luggage and then had to leave the car at the rugby club at the top of the hill because parking nearby was full.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

It's great to hear how much you enjoyed the great location of 1 Carnglaze Place. Parking is unfortunately at a premium in St Ives; with many properties not having this facility. For those without this facility; it is always worth looking into parking options beforehand on the local council website and looking into private parking availability, particularly for peak weeks. There is also a park and ride facility which some find useful. Please feel free to contact the team for any advice. Thanks for your comments, and we hope to see you back here soon.

Nice quaint cottage close to the harbour. Some noise from cottage above which may annoy some guests

Ideal location and very comfortable little flat.

I had a really wonderful stay. Perfectly situated and so comfy. WiFi and Netflix were excellent.

Great location and a lovely comfortable setting well worth it

Aspects are a wonderful company to book with,they do there upmost best to meet all your needs that is why we book with no other Company for the last 11years .M Mooney

Really pretty little cottage in a great location. Beautifully furnished and decorated and close to all amenities

I have been coming to Saint Ives for many years my grandchildren come with my daughter we spend two weeks here every year and have a fantastic time lot busy this year to be expected will be back again and will possibly book this apartment again if it’s available 10/10

Beautiful cottage, perfectly placed and decorated thoughtfully with some lovely touches. Very comfortable huge bed, fabulous shower, lovely and warm throughout, we were so sad to leave!

Absolutely loved our stay at Carnglaze Place. We couldn't have asked for better location and the Island Car Park was a few minutes walk, easy enough for us to pop back to the car or transfer luggage. The place itself was modern and cosy, had a lovely Cornish cottage feel to it. We will definitely try to stay here on our next trip to St Ives!

Lovely fresh and comfortable apartment, tucked away just a few yards from the harbour and beach. Beautiful furnishings and the flat is more spacious than expected. Very cosy and warm. (Note: the steep external steps to the door and internal stairs to bedroom make it unsuitable for elderly or those with mobility issues). Great service from Aspects Holidays. Would definitely stay again.

Hopefully we will see you back again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Great location, very modern and comfortable

Brilliant location, lovely, cosy flat with charm and loads of space for two with all the amenities needed. Booking was easy and the key box and instructions meant that check-in/out was seamless.

We had a great stay in a lovely place. Booking was easy and instructions were too. Lovely characterful property in a fantastic location.

A very tasteful and comfortable property in a wonderful location. A pity the heating was so low when I arrived but that was soon resolved. Excellent service from Aspects throughout.

We are very sorry that the heating had only been set to 16 degrees for your arrival but very glad to hear that once this was turned it, it warmed up nicely for you and that you found the property to be otherwise comfortable for your stay. Thanks for getting in touch. Tanya, Customer Services

Arrived in October - this property is very well presented in a fantastic location. Lovely to come back into from the cold, very cosy & comfortable.

A lovely break in a great location. Had everything we needed and was clean and comfortable. Great value for money and would definitely recommend.
