Cherry Cottage
Porthmeor, St Ives

£393 - £966 per week

Cherry Cottage, just metres from Porthmeor's life-guarded surfing beach, is a quaint fisherman's cottage capturing the best of the traditional and reflecting the fishing and artistic heritage of St Ives. This cosy cottage is attractive, comfortable and is an ideal choice for a family holiday or a romantic break for a couple. The cottage is central, yet tucked away and is close to a range of fantastic cafes, pubs and restaurants, including the fabulous Porthmeor Beach Cafe. The cottage is also within easy walking distance of the coast path and many shops and galleries.

We had a lovely stay at Cherry Cottage. Brilliant value for money with the location being a stone’s throw from the beach. Perfect to walk into town and access the shops and bakeries, and go to the beach whenever we felt like it. The cottage was very clean and nicely presented - I will mention that the internal stairs were steep, not a problem for us, and it did add to the charm of the cottage - but might not be suitable for people who struggle with stairs or for young children. I would definitely recommend Cherry Cottage if you want a lovely base for exploring St Ives.

Lovely little cottage.

Compact and quiet cottage, close enough to the beach to fall asleep to the sound of the waves but conveniently close to the harbour and town too. Location is everything-although we had no parking space with the cottage we were able to park close enough in the car park up the hill every evening and actually made the holiday more relaxing as we chose to stay in St Ives more rather than getting in the car everyday. Would return without a doubt!

Cherry Cottage was perfect for my first visit to St Ives. A delightfully quaint little fisherman’s cottage less than 100 steps from Porthmeor beach. Beautifully decorated, well equipped and perfect to come back to after a day of sight seeing. Ideally situated for all amenities and beaches, and I can recommend Porthgwidden beach for watching the sunrise. I’d highly recommend and I’d gladly return to Cherry Cottage at the drop of a hat.

I loved this place. I have been coming to St Ives on holiday since the 70's, and this place reminded me of so many places where I stayed when I was young, with my family.

It was a nostalgic overload which - after being locked down for such a long time - literally moved me to tears.

If you like Porthmeor beach, the location is fantastic.

The cottage is small and rather basic, but is comfortable and a great place to spend a few days as a couple.

A family with children, staying for longer, might find that it lacks sufficient storage space however (there are no wardrobes or cupboards to speak of). Understandable, given it is a former fisherman's cottage, but a family might want to bear that in mind.

Arrival went smoothly thanks to Aspects taking care of everything, and the "welcome pack" was much appreciated. I would book with Aspects again.

Cherry cottage is superbly located for Porthmeor Beach, 110 steps away!! Cherry Cottage was lovely and clean, beds and bedding lovely and comfortable, and the kitchen is really well equipped. The cottage is really well located, only issue is parking, but think that is a general issue around St Ives, so not solely related to this cottage. We absolutely loved out stay at Cherry Cottage and hope to come back soon.

Lovely cottage great location. No phone reception , and no broadband that worked

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are so sorry to hear that there had been issues with the wifi during your stay. Had we been aware, we would have tried to do everything that we could to help with this, so we hope that it wasn't too much of an issue for you. We have since been working with the owners to get this resolved with their wifi provider and BT, so there is now working wifi again. Unfortunately, many areas of St Ives have very poor phone signal and if you are staying in a traditional granite-built property, the signal can often be very poor inside as well. If this is an important consideration, it may be worth giving us a call when you are looking to book in future, so that we can advise, where possible, if there are any known issues with signal at the property that you are interested in. We are glad that you otherwise enjoyed the property and sorry again for this issue. Tanya, Customer Services

All I can say a lovely little cottage a fantastic location just 50 meters from the surf beach. You can walk with ease to great restaurants and local pubs in St Ives no need to use the car. Check out the seals in the sheltered St ives bays in the evenings. Aspects holidays very helpful professional and easy to talk with - perfect

A lovely small cottage, clean and well equiped and situated in a good location close to the beach and town centre.

A small, but perfectly located house with all the amenities you need for a visit to beautiful St Ives. Just a minute from the beach and very close to the Tate and shops.

Lovely week in cherry cottage, so close to Porthmeor beach, couldn’t get much closer. Cottage has everything you could possibly need the large fridge/freezer is a bonus and a lovely comfy bed. Would definitely stay there again. The welcome pack was such a nice touch

Had a fabulous stay at cherry cottage over New year . The cottage is cosy and comfortable with easy access to shops and restaurants plus the beach is just a stones throw away . Would definitely return and recommend

Cheryl cottage is a lovely property very clean with most aplinances. Great location just walk out and the beach is there 5 mins walk to all shops restaurants all in all a very enjoyable place to holiday.

Excellent location, good company to book with. Would return again to St Ives.

Lovely cosy little cottage, so close to the main hustle & bustle of St Ives, perfect little bolt hole, only thing missing is an outside seating area but it’s not possible due to the location, would definitely book again.

Thank you for your review; great to hear how much you enjoyed it there. We are glad that you liked its fantastic, convenient location, in easy walking distance to all that St Ives has to offer; and with Porthmeor Beach quite literally around the corner, we hope that an outside seating area at the property wasn't missed too much. We hope to see you back here soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Cherry cottage is the best Aspects cottage we’ve stayed in! It was brilliant for access to beach and town and had everything we needed, without excess clutter.

Just returned from a week in Cherry Cottage. It met our expectations and after a day spent outdoors it was lovely to go back to a cosy and comfortable cottage .

Cherry cottage is a quaint, lovely little cottage and is well situated. Bedrooms bit small. There was shortage of space for putting clothes. Beautiful place but parking atrocious as you have to try to get in one of the car parks.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

It's great to hear how much you enjoyed Cherry Cottage. Thanks for your thoughts on the storage; the owners have tried to make the most of the available space, and provide as much storage as they can, but we appreciate that this may not work for everyone. 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.

Really lovely stay here. Great location and really appreciated having a stairgate for our great stay with our little girl.
