Pump Cottage - St Ives
St Ives Town

£502 - £1322 per week

This is a truly cosy, listed Cornish cottage in a great location - a much loved home with a great sense of welcome and warmth. The spacious, open-plan living area ensures that there is plenty of room to relax and socialise together. The sitting room benefits from a wonderfully quirky 'hobbit door' that leads onto the secluded and enclosed outside area, where you can unwind and BBQ with the family. Pump Cottage is less than a minute's walk into town with its restaurants and shops and just a short walk to all beaches - a perfect holiday spot at any time of year!

Bedroom 2 will be made as two, 3-foot single beds, unless a super king is requested at the time of booking.

Everything you could wish for in a holiday cottage, full of charm and character, modern but tastefully furnished. We were so comfortable and with everything on our door step, it was superb. Slight noise from the nearby pub but only on one night and it was brief and didn't affect our enjoyment of the cottage. Will definitely be back.

Perfect location, clean, tidy, outside space a great Bonus, the cottage had everything you needed, would highly recommend it, would definitely stay again.

Wonderful cottage in great location,would highly recommend.

Fab cottage, location very central. Close to a pub but we had no noise or issues. The cottage has everything you need. We didn’t cook but if we did there was every dish, utensils etc you could wish for. Definitely look to book again in future.

Just back from a Christmas break at Pump Cottage. It was lovely. Yes, there is some noise from the pub but it never lasted long. The cottage was spotless, every kitchen utensil you would ever need and incredibly cosy. The Christmas decorations were a really thoughtful addition.

The boiler had a minor "moment" which was slightly disconcerting just before everything shut down for the holidays. But Sarah from Aspects was able to get hold of an engineer to fix it. All very quick and efficient.

Pump.Cottage was perfect for a winter break. Would highly recommend it.

Nice cottage beautifully decorated in town centre location

Pump Cottage was in a great location, really comfortable, excellently equipped, tastefully decorated, very clean and beautifully warm. We wanted for nothing, slept really well, and loved coming home to our cosy cottage every evening. Would definitely recommend.

We had a great week in Pump Cottage. The location for accessing all areas of St Ives is fantastic. The pub at the end of the road can be noisy at weekends but if you’re tired you’ll sleep through it! The outside space is great for breakfast and dinner. Only one warning: if you’re tall then don’t forget to duck - almost all the doors are lower than you think! Would happily stay here again!

A lot of the traditional cottages here in St Ives have very quirky layouts; some with lower ceilings, narrower stairs, and smaller doors than what we are all used to in more modern homes, but it is part of the charm of these types of properties and what attracts so many people to them. We hope that you didn't find it too much of an inconvenience and that the pub was what you were expecting from our website description. Tanya, Customer Services

This was our third stay in Pump Cottage and it’s always good to be back. The home from home comforts and space for the family is great and use of the beach kit is always appreciated.

Pump Cottage is a lovely, well equipped cottage in an excellent location. It’s exceptionally clean and very comfortable. Obviously more than just a holiday let to the owners! Everything we needed was there …and we loved ‘The Hobbit Hole’ door which led into the garden. Would definitely go back for another visit! Vikki Day

Really enjoyed our stay at Pump Cottage. Great, central location. Cosy, warm, spotless accommodation. Wish we were still there.

Pump cottage exceeded our expectations being so centrally located with only 2 mins walk to shops and 5 mins from a choice of beaches.

The cottage facilities were excellent and the house was spotlessly clean when we arrived.

Amazing cottage in the middle off everything you need loved everything about pump cottage and had amazing weather to just a beautiful place with lots going on

Cosy cottage not to far from beaches would book it again

Ideal property for easy access to both town and beach. Clean and homely with all the facilities you would need. Would highly recommend.

Just spent a lovely week in St Ives, Cornwall staying at Pump Cottage.The cottage was lovely, warm and homely and had everything you could wish for. On the first morning however, the boiler packed up leaving us with no hot water. I rang Aspects holidays, who sent a very nice plumber round to fix it, we did not have to wait too long. On Friday night there was some noise from the pub round the corner, but the rest of the week it was quiet. Pump Cottage is in easy reach of every where in St Ives.Do try the Scoff Troff cafe for dinner and the Cornish Deli for breakfast- you will not be disappointed! The only thing wrong with this lovely cottage was we had to leave it.

Thanks for your lovely comments and apologies for the issue you experienced with the boiler - we're glad we were able to fix it for you promptly. I'm pleased to say that the owner has since installed a brand new boiler so all is running smoothly again. We hope to see you again soon! Doug, Marketing Manager.

The cottage was as beautiful as I imagined and more, it has everything you need from dvds to kitchen utensils. It's located in a perfect spot in st Ives where its a few minutes walk to everything you need. We cannot wait to come back next year and would definitely stay in the same cottage

Lovely cottage with nice little courtyard garden. Ideally situated for town. Bear in mind that you may end up parking some distance from the property and up fairly steep hills.

Thank you for your lovely feedback! With the origin of St Ives being an old fishing town, there are many traditional cottages that do not have the facility of a parking space. Though there is no parking directly at the property, we hope that the other benefits and character that Pump Cottage offers made the walk well worth it. If ever you are looking at returning to Pump Cottage, our Sales Team would be happy to advise you on other car parks in St Ives. Lucy, Customer Services

Beautiful home and well equipped. Great location, minutes from beaches, harbour and shops. We want to live here! . . . And would definitely stay again :-)

Park Avenue is the closest car can (briefly) pull up outside cottage to unload luggage The "Hobbit Hole" doorway to the outside area might present problems to anyone with mobility or infirmity issues....or to elderly

Excellent warm cosy cottage, well equipped and in a great location. Beautiful original features - thoroughly recommended

Fab cottage, central location, décor excellent, homely and very well equipped.

We stayed at pump cottage for a week. It was a beautiful cottage in a great location, near to beaches and st Ives town. The cottage was spacious and homely. The beds are very comfortable and the showers are great. The little extras provided were a lovely surprise. Would definitely stay here again.
