The best place we have stayed which says something as we keep coming back ....

September 2018

We have been visiting St Ives for a long time now and have stayed at lots of different properties. Harbour Cottage was our winner so far. The property is even nicer on arrival than the website photos shown. Really well furnished with top end quality finishings. Felt really welcome and comfortable there - will definitely be booking a return visit.

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.

August 2018

Very happy holiday thank you.

June 2018

This cottage is wonderful, we could not fault it, might be so good for older visitors as the stairs to the entrance are very steep.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are delighted to read how much you enjoyed your time here; thank you for taking the time to let us know. Like you quite rightly say, the number and steepness of steps at this property, should be a careful consideration if booking this property. We try to make this as clear as possible on our website decsription, but for anyone interested in booking this property, if this is a concern, please do not hesitate to contact the sales team for further information. Thank you again for your lovely comments. Hopefully we will see you back here soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Absolutely immaculate cottage everything you could ever want in there, style, location and comfort.

May 2018

We have had a lovely stay in Harbour Cottage. A clean and comfortable cottage which has some quirky features and lots of character. Would happily recommend, 10 out of 10!

April 2018

The best cottage that we have stayed in during our 20 years of coming to St Ives. We have stayed in some of the best places in St Ives and this beats them all. Feels like home from home and every need is catered for no matter how small. Dog friendly and ease of access to all of the beaches, restaurants and bars.

March 2018

Lovely cottage, furnished to a very high standard and the cleanliness was the best we have encountered.

February 2018

My husband and I and our flatcoat retriever had a very comfortable stay in this delightful cottage. Beautifully fitted and decorated and so convenient for the harbour and beach. Owners have gone to a lot of trouble to make a rental property so nice for visitors.

Would definitely come again.


September 2017

Beautiful cottage situated in a perfect position. Not many places that you can rent in such a prime position that allow dogs. The accommodation was pure luxury and a real treat!! Thank you Aspect Holidays for making our Xmas 2016 one of the best ever!

December 2016

Harbour Cottage offers superb accommodation and is equipped with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday. This is our second stay and we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in St Ives - we really love if there! There cannot be many holiday prioperties in St Ives which offer wonderful sea views and situated so close to the harbour front but with the overriding advantage of privacy which the seafront properties lack. Hope to return again soon.

April 2016

Stunning property in a stunning location. Owners had thought of everything, so many lovely touches everywhere in the cottage. Very up to date and modern, pictures look fantastic but still don't do it justice. Really enjoyed our time here with the dogs and will definitely be back again.

April 2016

We all loved Harbour Cottage . This cottage is the best we have stayed in yet for location, comfort and interior design (we come to St Ives at least 4 times a year (home from home). Just gutted that it is booked for the rest of the year as we will defiantly come to Harbour Cottage again, again and again.

April 2016

A beautifully furnished cottage very clean and comfortable, our little dog was welcome too, we stayed during a cold spell and the cottage was so warm and cozy its just perfect, we all loved it here, Happy Days!!!

February 2016

Excellent property beautifully decorated top class fittings . Very comfortable Central location

December 2015

The accommodation and location was everything we hoped it would be. It was very well equipped and warm to say it was November we spent a great week there and hope to return again next year.

November 2015

Absolutely fantastic place. We have stayed in many really nice properties in St Ives over the past 10 years, however, this was without doubt the best ! The welcome pack was a very nice touch, kitchen was so well equipped and the bed was very comfortable - all things that have been sadly lacking in previous accommodation. We will definitely return.

October 2015
