The Old Workshop Mount Zion, St Ives

£350 - £772

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.

Lovely well appointed cottage, ideal as a base for 2 guests, superb location literally 100 yds from harbour & great location with Porthgwidden & Porthmeor beaches on the door step. Thanks very much. Had a great holiday.

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.
