Quay Cottage The Wharf, St Ives

£379 - £908 per week

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.

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.

Had an amazing week in a beautiful St Ives, location perfect with everything on the doorstep.

Would highly recommend :)

Sep 2019

The cottage was amazing: ideallic, lovely, stunning, had everything you would and super comfortable. The service was great and so helpful, when needed. The location was perfect and so ideal; being someone who has stayed in St. Ives a number of times, I have to say this has been my best experience of accommodation. I absolutely loved it my stay here and would definitely recommend it to anyone - maybe even return one day in the future.

Aug 2019

Beautiful cottage. Fantastic location.

Jul 2019

St ives is a beautiful corner of the world. You will not be disappointed.

Jul 2019

We enyojed our second stay at the Quay Cottage as much as the first one last year. Great Location and beaches just around the corner. The cottage ist perfect for a couple, the style is cosy and it is fully equipped. We would absolutely recommend this cottage!!

Jul 2019

Aspect holidays and staff very helpfull and friendly would and do recommend them to friends and family

Jun 2019

Wonderful little property - just perfect for a weeks' getaway. Close to the pier, sea, shops and St.Ives Bakery that we visited on many occasions throughout the week. Really well equipped, as we most cook at home and don't do take-aways.

The only minus to the property (or many other holiday lets in St Ives) is that it does not have recycling information/options and only due to our persistence, we eventually found bins to at least recycle plastic from our food packaging, milk etc. Other than that nothing to complain about and the property is otherwise brilliant ! :)

Jun 2019

Felt so at home in the cottage that I've booked again for next year.

May 2019

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.

Apr 2019

Quality service from Aspects with great accomodation at Quay Cottage. Comfortable, clean and warm with everything you would need for your stay. Superb location with everything on your doorstep.Not a problem for parking as the Island Carpark just a very short stroll away. Would highly recommend this property and would no doubt use again.

Feb 2019

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.

Oct 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

Jul 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!

Jun 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!
