From the moment you arrive at this tastefully decorated and cosy 19th Century fisherman's cottage, you will feel at home - it's the perfect escape for couples. The property boasts a large bathroom with underfloor heating, lovely bedroom with sea glimpses and an open plan living area. The most unusual thing about Quay Cottage is that it's located right on The Wharf, but you have the added bonus of an elevated position above a beautiful enclosed courtyard garden, where you can sit, day or night and watch the world go by. As you can imagine, you are only a short distance from an array of shops, pubs, galleries, top class restaurants and the harbour beach is literally right on your doorstep!

It's a wonderfully romantic holiday spot.

This was the first time we had booked a cottage using Aspect Holiday and I found them very helpful and professional. The cottage was extremely well equiped and in an excellent location.

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.

Can’t recommend this little cottage enough. Lovely and cosy. Great location and we could hear the waves at night. Steps lead up to the cottage and there is a lovely little courtyard in front. Can’t wait to go back! Only wish we could take the dog.

October 2018

Quay Cottage is perfect for a couple who are content to remain in St Ives for the duration of their stay with the added benefit of an invaluable courtyard garden

June 2018

We spend fantastic two weeks at the Cottage. It ist perfect for a couple! The Location in St. Ives with bars/Restaurants/beaches just around the Corner makes the Cottage perfect for a Holiday. We would definitely recomend it!! Looking Forward to coming back!

June 2018

Quay Cottage is in a lovely quiet location only a brief walk from the lively bars and restaurants on the wharf and a few steps from the beach. It is a perfect romantic retreat, where you can hear the sea!
