Bookend Cottage St Ives Town

£412 - £1070

Bookend Cottage is a delightful Grade II listed property which provides all the charm of a traditional fisherman's cottage. Situated just off The Warren, in a quiet location, but just a stone's throw from the harbour, shops, restaurants and beaches; it's perfectly located to take advantage of everything that St Ives has to offer. Although this cottage has been modernised and is very well-equipped, it has retained much of its original feel and is homely and welcoming. With so many things to see and do, Bookend Cottage is the perfect base for a wonderful seaside getaway. There is the additional benefit of a snug on the top floor, a wonderfully secluded retreat and the perfect place to curl up with a book and relax after a day exploring.

If looking to book a short break at the cottage please enquire with the Bookings Team.

St Ives Town

Many of our larger town houses are situated just a couple of minutes’ walk from the centre and these offer ideal family accommodation, many with gardens, something of a rarity in St Ives. If all that shopping and socialising gets too much, you can always get away from it all and relax in the tranquil setting of Trewyn Gardens, a real little haven, tucked away in the heart of the town.

So, for self catering holidays in St Ives with everything on your doorstep, the town is the place to be.

Bookend cottage is in a perfect location, close to the beach yet on a quiet street. It is perfect for families with young children.

August 2018

We loved Bookend cottage. Beautifully furnished throughout in a great location, perfectly situated for all our favourite places in St Ives.

August 2017

Bookend cottage is a lovely place to stay. Very central for shops, restaurants and of course the choice of 3 beautiful beaches. It was bigger than we thought, very comfortable for a family of four. We had a great holiday, would definitely use Aspects again.

July 2017

A lovely sized, cosy cottage for our family of 4 (2 adults & 2 boys ages 4&7yrs) It felt like home during our weeks stay. Great location for Porthminster beach and the town.

April 2017

A wonderful little cottage, lovely decor and perfect location, with the beautiful town of St Ives being only a few yards away. My sons loved the bunk beds and the extra room to play in 'the snug' and the whole place had a very lovely, cosy feel. We would happily visit again and use Aspects Holidays in general. Highly recommended.
