2 Rose Lodge The Wharf, St Ives

£398 - £1036 per week

2 Rose Lodge is a comfortable, first floor apartment which is ideally positioned on the west side of the harbour and has superb unobstructed views from the sitting room. Enjoy the ever changing scenery from the comfortable window seat or explore St Ives from your doorstep. You will be spoilt for choice if food is your thing, with numerous restaurants and pubs close by. Porthminster and Porthmeor beaches are both within a five minute walk, with Harbour beach just seconds from your front door.

Couples, or those travelling alone, will love this centrally located waterside bolthole. Converted from one of the original wharfside buildings overlooking St Ives harbour, you can sip your morning cuppa in the window seat and watch the sunrise, lighting up this magical town. As dusk approaches, the scenery changes along with the atmosphere, as visitors head off from the beaches and into the many eateries and bars, whilst buskers and artists entertain their passing audience. If a true St Ives experience is what you seek, then look no further than Rose Lodge.


access is via a shared granite stairway of twelve steps from the Wharf to the entrance lobby.

Sitting room

double glazed picture window with window seat and views, sofa, dining table and two chairs, electric woodburner effect stove, Smart TV.


double electric oven with halogen hob, fridge/freezer.


bath with electric shower over, WC, basin, heated towel rail.


king size double bed, window to side elevation.

Additional information

electric heating via fire in sitting room and night storage heaters throughout. The apartment is situated on the harbour front, so on busier days with the window open you may hear the sounds and aromas associated with the busy bars and restaurants, there is also a small cafe/bar located next to the apartment which has a shared external granite stairway with 2 Rose Lodge. WiFi.


Fantastic, small and compact property, centrally located with breathtaking views of St Ives harbour where you can watch the day go by. We didn't switch on the TV once during our week stay. Great on both a sunny and stormy day.

Our only point to be mindful about is that EVERYONE walking by can't help but look up at you through the big glass window in the living area as you're just above their eye level. It was a bit like being a goldfish in a goldfish bowl.

An apartment that has everything you need in terms of comfort, cleanliness and location.. location.. Highly recommended !

St Ives Harbour

The Wharf, otherwise known as St Ives harbour, is a hive of activity throughout the year. With a continual hustle and bustle on the water and along the harbour front, there is always plenty to do and see while self catering at the Wharf, even at the quieter times of the year.  It’s an ever changing scene so perfect for those artists among you. Don’t forget about the very sheltered, sandy Harbour Beach, a perfect sun-trap in the heart of town and a great place to find seaglass and sea pottery! As night falls at the end of another perfect day, St Ives comes alive with a selection of bars, restaurants and cafés to suit every pocket and every taste in a truly cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Things to do at the Wharf

Boat Trips

Why not enjoy the scenery by boat and explore the coastline with an excursion with St Ives Boat Trips. Fishing trips are available for those looking for a bit of adventure, or for a more relaxing experience, a visit to seal island lets you see seals basking on the rocks at certain times of year. 

Eating and Drinking

The Wharf is home to a wide selection of restaurants and cafes, serving up fresh fish and chips to gourmet burgers, with something to suit everyone. Enjoy an ice cream or Cornish pasty and watch the world go by on the harbour front, but remember to keep your wits about you; seagulls in St Ives are renowned for swooping in and stealing food right from your hands!

Smeaton's Pier

From here you'll get a stunning view of the harbour, and an up close view of the crystal clear waters. At the entrance to the pier you'll find St Leonard's Chapel; originally dedicated for local fisherman, it is now a museum and memorial for the fisherman of St Ives.

Lifeboat station

Home to the new £1.5 million lifeboat, the RNLI lifeboat station is a popular attraction for visitors to St Ives. The gift shop next door sells souvenirs where all profits go towards helping to save lives at sea.

The one who returns the ball to the Guildhall steps by midday receives a silver coin. In the afternoon the Mayor then throw pennies from the balcony of the Guildhall for children to collect.

Perfect location! Waking up to the beautiful view of the harbour in the morning was bliss. So relaxing and a spacious apartment for 2 people. Aspects left a cleaning kit for us to use during our stay, due to the current covid situation, which included - surface spray, dish cloths, toilet bleach, hand wash, and surface wipes. This was a real nice touch and much appreciated!

The apartment is next to a cafe/bar so sometimes there are people walking up and down the stairs which look into the apartment, however this was not a massive issue as we was out most of the day anyway.

Will definitely return!

We are glad that you enjoyed the enviable location of 2 Rose Lodge. To get the benefit of being right on the harbour front, with those amazing harbour views and the convenience of being literally steps away from the restaurants, cafes, shops and beaches of St Ives, you do have the compromise of having passers-by and the risk of some noise associated with being in such a prime central location, so we try to highlight this as best as possible within the description. We hope that it was what you had expected from the information provided, but it certainly sounded like it was the perfect place for you both and we look forward to seeing you back here again. Tanya, Customer Services

An apartment that has everything you need in terms of comfort, cleanliness and location.. location.. Highly recommended !

Jan 2020

Love the location .Great views of harbour .Looking forward to returning soon.

Oct 2019

All in all very good as usual.

Oct 2019

We lovely the position of rose lodge, the never ending changing picture from the lounge window. We also like the improvements in the furnishings in the last year which have been great too. We have got further holidays already booked here.

Jul 2019

Another restful week at Rose Lodge with that fabulous view, my favourite being the sunrise over the harbour, such a relaxing start to the day,even the seagulls can't spoil that!!

May 2019

We could not fault the cleanliness of the property or the location. Very handy for all amenities. The property was very comfortable and spacious and the views spectacular, however it can be very noisy at the weekends due to the bar next door.

May 2019

Beautiful place would definitely stay here again ... Had everything we needed for our stay so would definitely recommend it to anyone

May 2019

We would not hesitate to book through Aspects Holidays again. Staff at St. IVES office very friendly and helpful.

Apr 2019

Property in a fantastic position close to all amenities. All rooms clean on arrival and no issues with any equipment during stay.

Dec 2018

Had another relaxing holiday for 3 weeks but access is not good if you have walking disabilities

Dec 2018

A lovely cosy cottage in the heart of the town with everything on the doorstep and we can't wait to be back again(already booked for next year). Would recommend it for anyone who wants to see the changing picture of st. Ives without having to move from their seat.

Nov 2018

A beautiful cottage in an amazing location. Would highly recommend. Be aware it is next to the Rum and Crab shack so can be a bit noisy in the evening, but wasn’t a problem in the bedroom.

Nov 2018

Rose Lodge is in a great location but there are a few issues that need addressing. The main one is it has a very small double bed so this really needs replacing with a bigger bed. Presently don't stay if you've come for a good night's sleep!

Sep 2018

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments. We are sorry to read that you found the double bed to be too small, and therefore too uncomfortable for the both of you. Currently, there is a standard double advertised there; so if you are used to a king or queen size double at home, this may understandably seem quite small, and may be something to consider at time of booking. We are very sorry if this was not what you had expected. Thank you for passing on your feedback; when you are spending a lot of time in a property, you get to view things in a different way than we do when we visit, so we really appreciate constructive comments that we can pass on and discuss with the property owners. Tanya, Customer Services

Convenient to shops and restaurants. Very noisey due to the business supply’s adjacent to the apartment.

Jul 2018

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for taking the time to send in your feedback, though we were really sorry to read that you had experienced so much noise from the neighbouring 'surf shack'. Whilst we include in the property description, that the stairs to the apartment are shared; we do not usually name the neighbouring premises due to the risk of businesses changing ownership and change of use as a result; but we closely monitor feedback to check that it does not cause any issue for guests. Over the years of marketing this property, it has just been mentioned once before, though on that occasion, the noise was from the Rum and Crab shack. With the fantastic location, right on the harbour front, some noise is always a risk, though it has rarely been highlighted as a concern here. However, as a result of your feedback, we have now amended the description to state what the neighbouring properties are, and hope that this helps guests to make an informed decision at time of booking. Thank you so much for binging this to our attention, so that we can look into this further, and take appropriate action. Tanya, Customer Services

A wonderful apartment with an amazing view of the harbour.

May 2018

Awesome location, well equipped - will book again in a heartbeat !!

Apr 2018

Oct 2017

May 2017

Awesome location, lovely comfortable accommodation - we will be back!! Loved it !!

Apr 2017

We would highly recommend Rose lodge for its excellent location, a good sized property with a fabulous view of everything that is going on in St. Ives.

Jul 2016

/What more could one wish for? 2 Rose Lodge ticks all the boxes. If you like watching the sunrise, the changing of the tides and people having their pasties stolen by seagulls then this is the holiday home for you! A comfortable property in a perfect location.

Apr 2016

It was lovely . Excellent location but do think that it should be mentioned that there is a very noisy pub right next door.

May 2015

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments and we are very sorry to hear that you experienced some noise over the weekend. 2 Rose Lodge is located right on the harbour and next to The Rum and Crab shack. Being in such a fantastic location like this, can mean it may be a little more likely to experience some noise from the nearby restaurants and the volume of footfall on the Harbour front during busy times of the year; though this is the first time we have heard of any noise diturbance here. It's possible that there had been an event/party, given that we do not usually hear of any issues, but we will closely monitor future feedback to see if this is something that will need to be better highlighted in our description. We are glad to hear that you otherwise enjoyed this cottage and the lovely, ever-changing views from there. Tanya, Customer Services.

Perfect location, fabulous view. A great place to sit and watch St. Ives as it changes from morning to night.
