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.

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

Great location

We very much enjoyed our stay, despite the sometimes challenging Cornish weather. However, the accommodation was welcoming and warm, providing everything needed for a very comfortable and relaxing stay.

Lovely house in a brilliant location with stunning views. Just perfect.

This property is a little gem. Beautifully presented clean and cosy. The best part for me is the view from the balcony. Enjoy a glass of wine, read a book whilst hearing the waves against the harbour. You are close to everything. Perfect

Lovely holiday at 1 Mt Zion - great location and easy cottage to use. Aspects staff very helpful!

Love the location. Loved sitting on the small patio and people watching.Although we have stopped here before and loved it, this time I am not so able bodied as I was so found it very difficult to climb the steps to the front door, also found it difficult to climb the two flights of stairs to the bathroom. Would not be able to stay again until I have my new knees. Very sad.

Fabulous views! Lovely clean, comfortable house with all home comforts.

We had a fantastic stay in October at 1 Mount Zion, the weather was stunning! We had wonderful views it was a lovely house, spotlessly clean, comfy beds, beautifully furnished, warm and cozy. We would definitely stop here again. Bit of a steep climb for my 93 year old mother to get up the steps into the property but she’s managed it ! Thank you Aspects holidays ??

Lovely cottage. Tastefully furnished and comfortable. Excellent location.

Clean and comfortable property with fantastic views overlooking the harbour and near to all of the main amenities and shops in St Ives.

Lovely property in a perfect location.....

We enjoyed our stay but it's not suitable for 6 adults....the bunk beds are only suitable for a small a adult/children.

We are sorry if the bunk beds had been smaller than you were expecting. Whilst it is not a small bunk bed, these may not work for all adults. We have now added a photo of this bedroom so that guests will have a better idea of this room, its size and can make an informed decision on whether it will suit their party. Thanks for the feedback; the property is certainly in an amazing location, and we do hope that you still liked it. Tanya, Customer Services

Lovely to have a balcony over-looking the harbour. Excellent central position.

Loved this cottage and will certainly stay again.

Oh dear!

Excellent central position and great views of the harbour.

When you are on holiday take time to investigate the area and if you can’t find something or some where don’t be afraid to ask for directions or recommendations but above all enjoy yourselves and the surroundings the locals are very sociable.

Ideal location, beautiful views, but very noisy at night

Thank you for your comments and we are so glad to hear that you liked the fantastic location. Being in such a fantastic location, you may hear some of the hustle and bustle of the town at times, particularly in very busy weeks, but we hope that you agree that it is worth it for the amazing views right outside your door and being just a few steps from everything that St Ives has to offer. Hopefully see you again soon! Tanya, Customer Services.

Excellent location and one of the few properties where you can sit outside and view the Harbour. A perfect way to start and end the day.

Best location in St Ives. Lovely view of the harbour from the balcony.

Excellent location, We loved the balcony and it's view it was great for relaxing, people watching and taking time to talk to passers bye.

Fantastic location, everything is an easy walk, beaches, harbour, restaurants, shops, pub, all a minute from Mount Zion. Even Aspects office is right there! Lovely views from the windows at the front, comfy living room & beautiful bedrooms. Kitchen lovely & plenty of space. We will definitely book this property again. There are steep steps up to the front door.

Very good location,very clean and comfortable ,all amenities close to hand ,will definitely return in the future.

The cottage was very well equipped, with a small terrace which you can sit out and enjoy the views of the Harbour life The cottage is only a few steps away from the Harbour it is ideal for all ages
You could easley leave the car parked all week and enjoy all the great walks and St Ives life in general We had a really enjoyable time with fantastic weather,- and this was Mid October-

Excellent property in a wonderful location.

Best view of the harbour in St Ives.

Great property in a great location with helpful Aspects staff.

This cottage is just fabulous. Perfectly placed with priceless sea views, the attention to detail made it seem more like a hotel experience than a holiday cottage and provision of essentials such as bedding, towels and initial tea, coffee and milk supplies was a real bonus. Spotlessly clean and well equipped, absolutely every aspect of a home from home experience was covered. We will certainly return

Excellent property, very well equipped, comfortable, everything worked properly and the location could not be bettered

Lovely place to stay right on the beach everything decor furnishings etc were to a high standard will be booking again for 2016. Stairs maybe a bit steep for people with bad leg problems.

A superbly appointed and extremely conveniently located house with all mod cons and stunning views from most rooms. Very good value for money when all facilities are taken into consideration, especially the balcony and multiple bathroom areas. We have been staying in and around St Ives for over 15 years and this was our first "Aspects" property. Without a doubt it is now the favourite! Would have no hesitation in returning. Indeed, can't wait!

We have been visiting St Ives for years and every year stayed in a different cottage with whichever company. This was by far one of our favourite properties for location, amenities, space, cleanliness and specifically... The spectacular views. We will definitely come back to Aspects & Mount Zion!

1 Mount Zion has everything you could need for a very relaxing holiday
