A creative retreat..

Artist's Cottage has recently been renovated by its owners who lived in the cottage full time up until recently. With steps up to the front door from Back Road East you enter into a large sitting TV room complete with log burning stove. An open plan lounge, kitchen and diner. This makes for a wonderful family and social space so that nobody feels isolated in the kitchen. For those looking for some peace and quiet the second lounge, ‘snug’ or arts and crafts room is a perfect spot to relax, read a book or get creative.

On the second floor of Artist's Cottage the master double bedroom has an en suite shower, hand basin and WC. The second bedroom is set up as two singles. The third bedroom is a double located in the eaves of the roof and has limited head height. The family bathroom is set in a generous space and has a separate shower cubicle, a stunning roll top bath, a hand basin and WC.

A perfect place..

Artist's Cottage is situated in the highly popular Downalong location in St Ives. Within effortless walking distance of the four beaches of St Ives including Porthmeor, Porthgwidden, Bamaluz and Harbour Beach. Also with numerous restaurants, bars, cafes and local shops just a stones throw away this cottage makes for a perfect short break or stay without any need to use your car. Just perfect for relaxing and enjoying everything that St Ives has to offer.

As stated in the very name of Artist's Cottage this would also be the perfect creative retreat for both skillfil and amateur artists alike due to The St Ives School of Painting at Porthmeor Studios being located on Back Road West.

Awesome house. Super stylish space and unbeatable location. Close to beaches, town centre and parking. Really comfortable beds. Great kitchen/living area and facilities. Would definitely recommend!


Thank you for providing such a lovely property for people to stay in. It has the old charm and quaintness that it should rightfully keep but a super modern and clean cut kitchen and bathrooms. The balance of old and new is perfect.
The communication from Lisa was really friendly and super quick responses were provided which was excellent!
Our 9 month old loved the downstairs layout as he could crawl around the ground floor with no issues and we could keep our eyes on him at all times being it's so open and spacious. Myself and my partner are on the taller side, he's 6'4", and we did clip our heads a couple of times on the low 2nd bedroom sloped ceiling and a couple of lampshades but once we got used to the layout it wasn't an issue.
The location is fantastic, we have stayed a couple of doors away from this house before, it couldn't be in a better place for access to the beaches, bars and shops.
If you couldn't tell we were absolutely over the moon with this property and will definitely look at booking again. Thanks so much!!


Absolutely amazing place to stay. Beautiful, homely and every detail is well thought out and considered. Location is ideal - right in the middle of town but super quiet and a 2 minute walk to the beach. The house was beautifully decorated with lots of local artwork. Beds were SO comfy. We had the best time here and didn’t want to leave - we will definitely return! 


We recently had the most wonderful stay at the Artist’s Cottage and would recommend to anyone looking for a cosy, comfortable home within a few minutes walk of all the action. The cottage had all the amenities we could possibly need and we felt right at home! Thanks so much for a superb visit 🙂


Lovely house, great location, 1st time to St Ives and Cornwall! Decided on a staycation in light of what’s happening (we always go abroad - never holiday in the UK), but we all loved St Ives so much and are already looking to go back next year! We would prob would stay a bit further out next time just to get a little garden for the dog and maybe parking, and a little less night time seagull noise but that’s just for ease for us having a dog and a toddler, can’t fault this property - cute touches with books and games hidden all over - we had plenty of card games! Enjoy!


The best place to stay in St Ives. Perfect location, a stone's throw from the harbour front, but still quiet and private. Great communication, easy check-in and beautiful cottage. Didn't want to leave.


Gorgeous stay in st Ives in a beautiful little cottage located perfectly for walking to the harbour, beaches and shops! The living area downstairs felt very spacious and was great for family meal times and movie nights! upstairs the beds were comfy and bedrooms beautifully decorated. My only comment would be that if you are very tall this may not be the place for you as some of the doorways are quite low and the bath is designed for a shorter person! Still 5 stars and would thoroughly recommend


We fell in love with the quirky characterful cottage as soon as we arrived. It is so peaceful and calm yet only minutes to the hustle and bustle of St Ives and easy access to stunning beaches and coastal walks. It’s been lovingly designed to feel like a cosy lived in home yet wonderfully tidy and clutter free. We loved our week, it was a soothing balm for the soul and I can’t wait to go back!
