Clean the apartment up it was filthy

September 2020

The Nook is a perfect little apartment very close to the harbour and shops, with the added bonus of a parking space. More suited for a young family or a couple, as living space was a little cramped. The washing machine (which was located at the end of the alleyway) was a god send but when airer was up, there was not much room.

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.

Lovely location out of season, busy in season. Small but homely.

Dec 2019

Booking with Aspect holidays was easy, the Nook was aptly named. It is located a few steps from the harbour and so easy to get to everything. The majority of the pubs and cafes are dog friendly, our Schnoodle loved it.

Oct 2019

The Nook was an excellent choice for us and as we wanted close proximity to beaches, shops and the harbour, the location was fantastic. A cosy cottage with lovely decor. Felt very much at home.

Sep 2019

Initial presentation was excellent. Superb location, lovely decorations, everything you need in the kitchen. Smart TV and Bose system need i say more. Also the welcome pack of cream tea and wine and the added Tea coffee milk and sugar which hit the nail on the head after a 7hr journey. We really had a great stay, our party included 5 23,54 and 85yr old wheelchair user (could walk up the step and about The Nook)

Beautiful Little cottage, perfect location, very well equipped

Jul 2019

Great location

Jun 2019

This tiny Nook is close to the harbour and the busy main shopping street. It's in the heart of St Ives and great for being close to the bars and cafes...and beach. However with little natural light and no mobile signal, some may find it claustrophobic. But we enjoyed being close to everything and spent most of our time out & about. When things went wrong both Aspects and the owner went out of their way to rectify things and make sure our holiday was one to remember.

May 2019

This property is in an excellent location. The owners have clearly taken time to add lots of homely details and furnishing. However there is no natural light coming in to the living area. The living area is very small and not very comfortable for more than 2 people. The bathroom is incredibly small. The bedrooms are a good size.

We are sorry to hear that found the living area to be darker than expected and not big enough for more than 2 people. Many of the older properties within St Ives are often packed full of character, with quirky layouts but often a lot smaller than in more modern buildings. We always try to be as open and honest as possible, so whilst The Nook can accommodate 4, with a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, there is just the 2 seater sofa and dining table with 2 chairs in the sitting/dining/kitchen area. It may not work for everyone but provides a great little base right in the heart of the extremely popular St Ives. We try to give an accurate representation of the size and layout of all properties within our photos and descriptions, and with the addition of a video for this particular property, we hope that we have achieved this. Thanks for your helpful comments, and we hope that you enjoyed everything that St Ives had to offer. Tanya, Customer Services

Great location right by the harbour. This property provides everything you need for a hassle free holiday. Lovely and cosy too. A little noisy at night and early morning, which may put some people off.

We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your time at The Nook. With its fantastic location right between Fore Street and the harbour, you really do get the best of both worlds. With its fantastic location in the heart of St Ives, there is occasionally some associated noise from the restaurants and the volume of people in that location, though the local businesses try to be as considerate as possible to minimise this. We appreciate that this may not suit everyone, but we are glad that you agreed that it is a fantastic spot for really getting to experience all that St Ives has to offer. Tanya, Customer Services

This is a lovely little property, right in the heart of town, so only a short distance from anywhere within St. Ives. it has everything you may need.

Jan 2019

A charming little cottage in an excellent location, although not big, it was large enough for 4 adults, we had a November booking and the cottage was really warm and comfortable, would highly recommend and hope to return soon.

Nov 2018

We had a lovely stay. The Nook was very comfortable and had everything we could want. A very well decorated and furnished cottage in an excellent location.

Nov 2018

The nook is a fantastic location but you do get a lot of noise from the surrounding businesses ie bin emptying and deliveries very early in the morning and late at night so please be aware . It did not affect our holiday at all and earplugs would do the trick x

We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed the fantastic convenient location of The Nook. Being tucked away down a cobbled street in the centre of St Ives, just a few steps from the harbour in one direction, and Fore Street in the other, which is lined with nice restaurants, cafes and independent retailers; you really do get the best of both worlds. There can be some associated noise from the restaurants and the volume of people in that location at times. We are glad that you really enjoyed it there, and all the benefits of being in the heart of it all. Tanya, Customer Services.

Beautiful cottage has everything you will need for your stay , cottage was clean no sign of any dogs and prefect location , unfortunately bathroom was a little big small for a family , internet was excellent but No phone signal , just what your 12 year needs

Thank you for your review. It is great to read that you enjoyed your stay at The Nook and that the property had everything you needed, whilst also being in the perfect location! It's certainly not a generous sized bathroom, but the owners have tried to ensure that there is everything there that guests should need. Unfortunately there are quite a few areas within St Ives that have poor phone signal, so if this is an important consideration, it may be worth giving us a call when you are looking to book in future. Thanks again for your review and we hope to see you back again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

The Nook was a beautiful property in the most perfect location. The extras were very much appreciated, will definitely be staying again. Aspects customer service is wonderful too, thank you all around from this family!

Aug 2018

Lovely cottage, excellent location close to the harbour and the shops

Jul 2018

Lovely cottage, fantastic location, wonderful decor, comfortable and cosy.

May 2018

A fabulously quirky little cottage in a brilliantly convenient, central (but secret!) location. It is full of character, but will surprise you with all it's modern technology.

Apr 2018

Very convenient for beach, shops etc and very cosy when visiting in colder weather

Mar 2018

Although without views, this lovely little cottage is superbly based in the hub of the town.

Jan 2018

Cute little cottage & well positioned in the town.

Dec 2017

Perfect location. Steps away from harbour front. Lovely welcome hamper.

May 2017

Very close to all amenities - well equipped and perfect for those who like to be in the heart of the hustle and bustle of St Ives.

Aug 2016

Cosy clean furnished lovely

May 2016

NOT suitable for elderly/disabled. Constant deliveries up side of property. Very claustrophobic and would only be okay if you were literally only sleeping in there.

Thank you for your very useful feedback. The Nook is a fantastic base for exploring St Ives, being just a few steps away from both the harbour front and Fore Street. With such a fantastic, central location, there are a few restuarants in close proximity and some noise may be experienced; our description has now been amended to state this. As The Nook is on the ground floor and level throughout, we list this as accessible, though there are a couple of steps into the property itself. Our website has the option of selecting 'accessible' properties, which are described as this due to having level/ground floor access (though there may be a step or two into the property), or lift access; some are fully wheelchair accessible. If accessibility is a consideration, please do get in contact with our sales team before booking so that we can advise on the suitability. Tanya, Customer Services.

Great location, well furnished and equipped with everything you could need. Needs an outside bin and the noise from.nearby bars and restaurants was a problem for us so we'd stay a little more out of the way next time but this is a great little apartment.

Jul 2015

Quirky cottage but very noisy location
