Aptly named Mordros (Cornish for ‘sound of the sea’), you’ll be reminded of just how close you are to one of Cornwall’s best beauty spots with the turquoise bay on constant display from several sea-facing windows, and a Juilet balcony from which to enjoy the sea air and views. Contrasting beautifully with limewashed stone walls and polished wooden floors, soft blue tones and tasteful furnishings invite you to ease into laid-back coastal living.

Quirky alcoves and an ornamental fireplace nod to the property's heritage, while three beautiful bedrooms and two bathrooms (one with a fabulous roll top tub) offer plenty of space for six guests. The cottage has been thoughtfully equipped for complete comfort too, with luxurious beds, plantation blinds so you can enjoy a lie-in, a fabulous living room with flat screen TV and Sky, and a kitchen /diner complete with electric stove.

Of course, your St Ives getaway wouldn’t be complete without spending time at the beach, and Mordros sits within a short walk of one of its best. With its prestigious Blue Flag status, award-winning café, and views that stretch from the St Ives harbour to Godrevy Lighthouse, Porthminster Beach is simply perfect for sunbathing, swimming and relaxation.

Valid from February 2024, this property offers two passes for the Harbour Hotel and Spa in St Ives (located just up the road from Mordros), which are valid until 31st December 2024. Included in these passes is access anytime, including weekends, 20% off food and drink at Harbour Kitchen, Bar & Terrace, 20% off Spa treatments (Monday to Friday) and 10% off Spa retail products.

The Spa Opening times are 7.00am – 8.00pm (Monday – Sunday)
*Please note that the Spa is closed at 8.00pm so it is recommended guests arrive before 7.30pm*

(Visitors no longer have to book for swimming sessions, however it is recommended that guests book well in advance for treatments/spa packages to avoid disappointment.)

*Please note that Mordros is set over three floors with steep internal flights of stairs so may not be suitable for those with limited mobility

Welcome to St Ives

There’s something special about holidays in St Ives and we just can’t quite put our fingers on it. It could be the beautiful light that’s attracted artists to the resort for generations, the cobbled streets and coastal views…or that feeling of being a world away from the hustle and bustle. Whatever it is, St Ives has a charm that’s unlike any other, and we’d recommend it at any time of year.

More about St Ives


A cosy cottage in great location

Although this cottage has a quirky layout (shower room downstairs) with steep, narrow stairs, it provided a comfortable base for our week in St Ives. The views from the cottage are spectacular. The location is great (albeit on a main road) and the spa passes were definitely a bonus. We loved the coffee machine, with capsules provided, and our son appreciated the smart tv in the living room. Although I had added a special request to our booking for a cot and high chair (and emailed a few weeks before our holiday to confirm), these were not in the property upon arrival. However, I was able to contact a representative from LuxuryCoast who delivered them within half an hour.

Hi Rebecca, Thank you for leaving a review on your stay at Mordros. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed the location of the property and the views over St Ives! We do apologise the cot and high chair were not in the property on your arrival, this was missed by the housekeeping team. We do hope to welcome you to stay with us again in the future. Best wishes, The Luxury Coastal team
