Shabby chic meets boutique in this breathtakingly beautiful 1890 terrace property in the heart of St Ives Town, within a pebble's throw away from all the beaches and shops of St Ives. Lobster Retreat provides contemporary living with romantic, provincial French furnishings in a very homely, welcoming, spacious and well-equipped holiday home. Ideal for groups of couples or families to enjoy as well as smaller gatherings of friends all year round.

Whether it's eating, sleeping, bathing or having a theatre surround movie night with friends and family, this home will leave you refreshed and revitalised, and like a Lobster, there is no doubt you will fall in love for life. After a restful night's sleep why not enjoy breakfast in the morning's sun overlooking the beautiful courtyard garden. Or following a day at the beach, why not wash the day's sand away in one of the many stunning Italian tiled bathrooms, or relax in the bath whilst taking in the view of the turquoise waters surrounding Godrevy Lighthouse and golden sandy beaches of Hayle.

Our range of luxury cottages in Cornwall for that extra special holiday. Our Unique and Boutique cottages have been hand picked by our team as those that offer an extra special place for your holiday.

This cottage was everything we hoped it would be. The photographs were very true, the fixtures and fittings are of a high standard, the beds, bed linen and towels all good quality. There were 8 of us and a six month old baby, even the travel cot and high chair were of very good quality and condition. Excellent position, minutes into town, and long stay car park just moments away. Fantastic five night break to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage and Aspect holidays who kept the break a secret by sending all info to a nominated friend!!!

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.
