The Old Workshop Mount Zion, St Ives

£350 - £772 per week
Book
 

This unique building started life as a granite store where the local fishermen hung their nets to dry. Then it became 'the old workshop' where they mended and repaired their fishing nets and lobster pots. Just seconds from the harbour, The Old Workshop has been converted to an unusual and interesting holiday home, set between the old fishing quarter of St Ives, known as Downalong, and the harbour. The Old Workshop is ideally situated for a walk into town along the harbour front where there are many choices of restaurants catering for all tastes. It is also within walking distance of all of St Ives' golden sandy beaches.

What a pleasant surprise to find such a delightful and peaceful oasis of calm only yards from the harbour and so close to everything from the Tate to our favourite Porthgwidden beach.

A comfortable and centrally located property. Light and contemporary and a great little welcome pack to get us started!! Love that it’s dog friendly too.

Jun 2018

Super location, but parking is an issue in high season

Sep 2017

Get in touch with Aspects prior to arrival and make sure they get the bins emptied, otherwise you will find yourself walking along the harbour like I did to dispose of the rubbish towards the end of your stay,

Get in touch with Aspects prior to arrival to make sure that the fire alarm batteries are changed, otherwise you will have the dreaded low battery beeping with no instruction on whether they are happy for you to change the battery yourself or to call somebody out.

Get in touch with Aspects prior to arrival to make sure they actually clean the property for you.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are sorry to read that there were some are of the property that did not meet all expectations. The bin inside the property should have been emptied prior to your arrival, so we are sorry if this hadn't happened; and of course, you should always expect a property to be clean for your arrival. Unfortunately batteries can get low on alarms during a guests stay; a member of the team had offered to send someone over to replace the batteries for you as soon as we were aware, so I hope that this resolved that situation for you; and I hope that our contact with you since we received your feedback, has helped to reassure you of our usual high standards. Thank you for taking the time to contact us. Tanya, Customer Services

Excellent location well priced and provides for all your holiday needs, which makes for an excellent stay

Excellent location, perfect get-a-way for a couple.

Oct 2015

A wonderful break in St Ives, the Workshop is in a fantastic location for everything. Our second St Ives holiday with Aspects and we will definitely be back again.

Sep 2015

I had a great time at The Old Workshop, everything was a few minutes away, beaches on the doorstep, amazing views and the service was great. The cottage was perfect for what I needed and I just felt at home.

May 2015

I loved how open and airy the place was. You are less than 30 seconds from the harbour and yet it is so quiet. The lounge for me is the star of the building. It has enabled me to have a really quiet two weeks away so I have been able to unwind completely.

Dec 2014

Really enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to book again.

Nov 2014

We had a great week at the cottage. The Aspect holiday staff were great to deal. Thanks for a great holiday. Intend to re-book for next year. John & Rosemary Hogg
