Quintessential country cottage..

Relax and unwind in front of the wood burning stove of an evening and enjoy a social meal in Cara cottage’s easeful open-plan living spaces overlooking the gardens and beyond.

For a restful stay at Cara cottage there are two charming bedrooms, the primary boasting a beautiful wooden framed king size bed and solid oak floors, intimately lit by the floor level country style windows. The second bedroom at the back of the cottage includes two sizeable bunk beds that overlook the garden. Enjoy a warm bath or a quick rinse in the shower as the property includes both separately. 

The property once belonged to Sir Edward Hain, English shipping magnate and politician from Cornwall, as his weekend getaway in the mid 19th century. Located in Trowan, a small hamlet a little more than a mile away from St Ives amongst a cluster of country cottages and conversions. The outlook from this incredible home is rolling countryside of the surrounding farm.


A perfect place..

A utopian escape from this bustling world, set in 35 acres of private land for a more tranquil break, just a short drive from all the amenities St Ives has to offer. Cara Cottage is pretty, peaceful and private with ample parking in an enclosed lot next to the property.

Our stay at Cara Cottage was truly wonderful. It is located in a quiet settlement outside of St. Ives - about 5 minutes by car or 40 minutes on foot. There is a hiking path right in front of the house and it takes only 15 minutes to the South West Path along the cliffs.
The house is well equipped, even for longer stays.
We hope we can be back soon.


We would certainly recommend Cara Cottage. The location is ideal if you are looking for a quiet stay, with beautiful walks straight from the front door. St Ives is only a 5 minute drive away (be warned parking is difficult) or it’s a couple of miles to walk.
The living area was spacious for the two of us and had everything we needed.
Communication with Lisa was excellent.


We were really impressed with the accommodation - it genuinely exceeded expectations. Super clean and very spacious - we had everything we needed to hand. The views outside of the seaside are stunning and it was a lovely walk to the centre of St Ives from where we stayed.

We had our two children with us and it the accommodation was safe and child friendly - they loved it!

We definitely recommend this place if you are going to St Ives for a holiday.


Cara Cottage is a beautiful place to stay. A great location, very close to St Ives with lovely views of the sea. The cottage is lovely, great amenities and very well presented and looked after. It was everything we wanted for our stay at St Ives


Just got back from an amazing stay at Cara cottage. It’s so peaceful with beautiful views. The cottage is really clean and tidy and has everything you need. The views are incredible and there are walking paths right on the doorstep.
It’s not far to drive into St Ives and there are lots of places to park, restaurants and beaches to go to.
Our two toddlers absolutely loved the cottage and felt right at home straight away.
So many recommended places to see and do in Lisa’s little guide book.
Couldn’t recommend this place enough.


We stayed at Cara Cottage very recently and we can definitely say we would happily stay there again in the future! The property itself is great, nice and clean and such an ideal location if you have dogs with fields right outside. Sandy Toes made the experience very simple and this added to a great stay, we would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for somewhere nice and quiet with lots of scenery!


Lovely stay. Great location, great space, communication was always quick and Lisa was very helpful. Wouldn’t hesitate to book again!
