The Old Bakehouse St Ives Town

£455 - £1239 per week

At The Old Bakehouse you will feel at home as soon as you walk through the door. The cottage is full of charm and has a wonderfully comfortable feel, retaining lots of its original features. The cottage is ideally placed for a traditional seaside holiday, and a brief level walk takes you to the centre of St Ives with its beaches, restaurants, and shops. The open plan kitchen and dining area will make it easy to spend that quality time together during family meals. The woodburner in the sitting room adds an air of romance and makes it a great place to cosy up in the winter months.

The property also benefits from a lovely secure courtyard where the whole family can sit and enjoy the warm evenings or an alfresco breakfast. Leave nobody behind, as one well behaved dog can also join you on your trip. The sitting room has a quirky layout but the whole family can sit close by on an evening, thanks to the sofa and television in the dining area - please refer to photos.

Fantastic little cottage, which was perfect for our little family. It is in a great location and so cosy with the log burner on in the evenings. We will definitely be returning!

February 2020

A comfortable cottage. Well equipped kitchen for cooking and a lovely table and seating to enjoy a meal together. Cosy seating round the log burner but bring your own logs! The cottage worked well for 3 of us on a weekend stay. A bit noisy on a Saturday as the pub tips out!

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.

We really enjoyed our week at The Old Bakehouse in January - extremely well equipped cottage which was very clean and comfortable. Great location in St Ives, and an easy walk from the train station. Great to have a log burner - our only wish was for more firewood! Very easy to book, and a very friendly team in the Aspects St Ives office.

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your time at this lovely cottage; it certainly sounds like it worked really well for you. Most property owners provide a starter pack of firewood and kindling which should last for at least your first fire, which we know this owner does; but you do have to supply your own after that. If you are ever returning and would like further information on where firewood can be purchased, please do not hesitate to get in contact with us. Tanya, Customer Services

Our first holiday as a family of 3 and we all loved every moment. The weather was brilliant and then to be able to come back to the Old Bakehouse was such a wonderful way to unwind. The house felt spacious, was well equipped, clean and comfy, and in a wonderful location close to so many beaches and shops. Amazing amazing week

Jul 2019

We really love staying here , have done a few times perfect for our growing family

Apr 2019

Thoroughly enjoyed our few days in the Old Bakehouse. The property more than met our expectations in comfort and location. Good for a couple or larger group. Loved the kitchen/dining area and our dog enjoyed his holiday as well.

Oct 2018

All equipment & fixtures were first class.

Oct 2018

Way above expectations! We booked it fairly last minute as a kind of ‘it will do’ and it was such a pleasant surprise! We’ve been to St Ives for 8 consecutive years and stayed in a variety of places - this was among the best for our young family!

Apr 2018

A really lovely property with a very lovely kitchen and fantastic high spec equipment inspiring me to cook rather than eat out! The outside area was great to sit out in and enjoy a pre-supper drinks and snacks as well as enjoying an afternoon cup of tea whilst having a break from the hustle and bustle of the beach. Perfectly located for the harbour and shops, it's near several convenience stores and near good long term parking locations. The owners and staff at the office were really lovely when we had a bit of a hiccup and if they ever want to swap The Old Bakehouse for a small holding near Wales, we'd be more than happy to do so! All in all, it's an ideal home from home and we're looking forward to returning again sometime soon.

Apr 2018

A fabulous cottage within good walking distance of the town and beach. Everything was provided you could possibly need. The cottage has lots of original features and we loved the log burner in the evening, so cosy.

Apr 2018

A wonderfully decorated and equipped cottage within perfect distance of the Harbour, shops and restaurants. A thoroughly relaxing weekend away.

Nov 2017

Jul 2017

Fantastic location and great property. It had everything we needed.

May 2017

Bit of noise with traffic of people out of the pub on Fri and Sat nights in front bedrooms. Comfortable beds. Great well equipped kitchen, lovely living space - nice to be together in open plan areas. Stayed in 3 aspects cottages now and all have been of a very high standard.
