The Old Bakehouse
St Ives Town

£519 - £1442 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.

Lovely homely cottage, quiet part of St-Ives but convenient for majority of town and beaches. The street was quiet which made dropping off bags easy. Aspect were quick to respond to a question we had. We have two boys under 5 and they thoroughly enjoyed our week there, it was ideal for them. Would definitely visit again.

Lovely comfortable cosy cottage and very well equipped to the highest standards. Super comfy beds. We loved having the outside space. Our second visit and we will be back, it is so handy for the beach and town. Great for dogs too!

Great cottage with very close amenities.

Easy booking without any problems, reminders were appreciated too. The information in the holiday home was thorough and helped us during our visit. The property was homely, with great facilities.

We absolutely loved The Old Bakehouse! The beautiful and well equipped kitchen area is perfect for family (and friends dropping by) and the house is very comfortable and well designed (beds SO comfy). We have always stayed in Downalong before so were a bit apprehensive about moving 'into town' but it was actually super convenient having the Co-op and the high street just nearby. As for The Three Ferrets, we didn't hear a squeak.

Great location, perfect lay out for family’s.

We were offered The Old Bakehouse as the accommodation we booked was unavailable last minute due to previous holiday makers damaging shower. I'm so glad we got to stay here over our original booking . We will definitely book here for future 4/6 person holiday . Special note to Nicole for all your hard work finding us new accommodation at such short notice , amazing outcome , thank you . Jayne

Lovely little cottage in a great location. Highly recommended, would stay again

Our second stay here and we will definitely be back again.Everything about this property is perfect we love it and the property was absolutely spotless brilliant holiday.

This is a great property - our 3rd visit. We were 4 adults but it’s a really spacious, well furnished property.

Lovely to come at Christmastime; St Ives is fab at this time of year, just the right amount of busy! And a brilliant location, everything is right on your doorstep.

Had a very enjoyable stay at the Old Bakehouse,and all the staff at Aspects in st Ives were very helpful and made are stay for our 10 year Anniversary very special

The property is lovely with interesting features, very spacious for my family and dog. The shower is great especially after a long day walking the SW coast path. The location means that you are in the heart of St Ives, near shops, restaurants and beaches. Ideal to leave the car and explore St Ives and the surrounding area such as Carbis bay, easily.

Really good location, not too noisy at all. Kitchen was very well equipped and bedrooms were comfortable. The house was not as clean as we would have liked, with rubbish being left from the previous guests and from the cleaners.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are so sorry to hear of the property was not as clean as it should have been. That is very unusual for this housekeeper. There is a separate company who come to collect the rubbish, and sometimes they do not collect it until later in the day, so that may explain that, but if it never got collected or was just some items left in bins, we can only apologise for that. These should of course always be emptied and collected every changeover. We are glad that you had enjoyed it there but sorry again if anything had been missed for your arrival to the property. Tanya, Customer Services

If you want a lovely cottage within walking distance from the shops, co op, cinema and beaches this is perfect. Great outdoor space for surf boards and dining outside. Highly recommend.

A lovely little dog friendly holiday home that's ideal for two adults. It's a very short walk (5 mins) away from the town centre and harbour beach. Plenty of towels and soap were provided. The bathrooms were very clean but the kitchen wasn't so clean.

However, just be warned about The Three Ferrets pub at the end of the street, it's very noisy at all hours, fights are frequent, and drug dealing does happen. This pub is the only reason I'd hesitate to return.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are sorry to hear if any area of the property was not as clean as you would expect. That is certainly not the norm for this property, with the housekeeper usually getting very good feedback, but we will make sure that this is followed up with her. Regarding the pub, whilst some associated noise can be expected, the other things that you mention never used to be a regular or significant occurrence and have been raised and monitored by several property owners in the area since. With some persistent work with the council and police, towards the end of 2022, they have manged to enforce some changes to the pubs licencing and security, which should have a significant impact on this. We would fully expect that you would not have this kind of experience again, should you return. Tanya, Customer Services

Absolutely stunning cottage,perfect location had everything you could think of. This cottage was cleaned to a very high standard .we really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return..

Lovely old cottage. Cosy and comfortable in a great location.

Just had a few days in this cosy cottage, wood burner worked well and we took our own logs for a continuous supply. The heating worked well (January). Great location for walking to beaches, shops and restaurants. Didn’t use the enclosed courtyard but must be great to have in the Spring/summer. Used the parking at the Rugby club, up the hill, 20 mins walk up but happy to do that with the dog and works off the holiday calories. Actually didn’t use the car every day as so many lovely walks and exploring to be done in st Ives and locally. St Ives is very dog friendly.

lovely spacious stone house in a great location for exploring St Ives without your car. Lovely kitchen and equipment (we cooked a big roast), log burner, dishwasher, washing machine. Warm in January even without using the fire. Cooking books and board games, smart TV's for login with your TV accounts. Convenient to Co-op supermarkets just 1-2 minutes away on foot. Spacious outdoor courtyard with table and chairs, accessed from the kitchen door.

Walking in from the front door there is coat hanging space and a bedroom to the left with two bunk beds. this then opens up into the living area with a lovely dining table and sofa and a nice big kitchen with great cooker/hob and equipment. The bathroom with washer/dryer is accessed from the end of the kitchen and has windows onto the courtyard. compact lounge with a smart TV and then the upstairs are two good-sized bedrooms and WC. The front bedroom has the double bed.

The property is away from busy roads and traffic. You can drop off luggage at the property but you will need to park away from the property either in the nearby council car parks £47.70 for the week or like we did find some street parking 5 minutes away up the steep hill. If you are not accustomed to town centre noise, do bring earplugs or sleep in the back bedroom (with the 2 single beds) as it can get a little noisy as people leave the 3 Ferrets pub.

Would love to come back and visit again.


Fantastic house in a great location! Really spacious and furnished and equipped to a high standard. Beautifully clean and comfortable!

This was our second time at The Old Bakehouse.

St Ives is a wonderful place to come at Christmastime!

The property is fantastic with plenty of room for a family of 4-6. The outside space is a bonus and the shower is amazing. The kitchen and dining/ kitchen table are great and full to the brim of what you need!

Great location - close to the shops and amenities.

Two Week Stay Again With Aspect Holidays...

The Old Bakehouse Is A Great Property Located Well Within Stives, Lots Of Space For A Family Of 5+.

Well Equipped With Everything You Need. Ideal Having The Two Sitting Areas With TVs Too!.. Extra Added Bonus Is The Sun Trap Courtyard Which Is Great To Relax in.

First class accomodation

A beautiful and peaceful cottage. The downstairs space was bigger then we thought and felt very relaxed. Really nicely done. Really close to shops etc but still quiet. Only thing to improve was the driving directions; I would definitely come down the street rather then up it as it is very tight and you avoid the corners by coming down.

Excellent location, little outside yard, great cottage for family’s and friends Fully equipped kitchen and cosy log fire. What more do you need?

Lovely week away. Cottage so convenient. Spacious and great that it is dog friendly. Great shower and lovely hot water always. Unloading is tricky outside property due to narrow road so worth considering but that's just part of staying in St Ives. Owners are lovely and visited promptly when we had a loss of power in the property.

Amazing place! Would definitely recommend to anyone who needs a place to stay. Such a cute cosy cottage with an outdoor sitting area perfect for summer. Right in the heart of St ives on a lovely cobbled street. The landlord and people working at Aspects were so lovely and helpful, can't really fault it!

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!

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.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

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

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!

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

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

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.

All equipment & fixtures were first class.

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!

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.

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.

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

Very sweet cottage, seriously well equipped and fantastic central location.

Great location, just be aware of the parking, which we were. Very warm and comfortable stay.

Fab stay. Will be returning!

Lovely traditional cottage in the heart of st ives, the welcome pack of tea,biscuits etc was very nice, we had a lovely stay.

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

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.
