Overview

One of a handful of character properties in Hicks Court which sits at the entrance to the narrow cobbled streets of The Digey, the location of this little gem is superb. Porthmeor’s surfing beach and iconic café as well as the harbour, some of the town’s best restaurants, its galleries and shops, all lie on the doorstep. And for those travelling by car who’d like to explore the whole of St Ives Bay, places like Gwithian, Hayle, Carbis Bay and Lelant are just a few minutes away.

The space the cottage offers is perfect too. Comfortable bedrooms, a lovely living room, amply equipped kitchen, large bathroom and private courtyard provide families, couples, friends and their dogs a beautiful base from which to enjoy holidays in one of Cornwall’s most famous towns. Shell Cottage also provides a parking space, which as most know is a real plus for St Ives, especially during the busy summer season.

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.
