The Digey..

The property is accessed up a few granite steps which lead to the front door where you can catch a glimpse of the sea. The cottage is situated just yards from the beautiful surfers beach at Porthmeor and the fabulous Tate Gallery. Corner Cottage is situated in The Digey, a lovely cobbled street that connects Porthmeor beach to the bustling Fore Street with its many individual shops, great eateries and art galleries.

Enter Corner Cottage into a convenient hallway that separates the living quarters from the stairs leading up to the bedrooms. Just off the hallway is the living room which has plenty of comfortable seating around a beautiful cast iron gas fireplace, perfect for those chilled movie nights with the family. Through the living room is a well equipped, bright and airy kitchen with a large dining area. The kitchen is spacious and inviting and includes all the amenities a modern family could need. The dining area can seat up to 8 people which is great for those family evening meals.

At the top of the stairs are the 2 sizeable bedrooms. The primary bedroom is comfortable and welcoming with ample storage space for luggage, a space to sit down, unwind and read a book and lots of natural light coming through the window. The second bedroom at the end of the hall includes a large double bed and a single bed. The room can comfortably fit 3 guests, it also has plenty of wardrobe space and lots of natural light. In the family bathroom is a great sized bathtub with built in electric shower, WC and washbasin with shelving for towels and toiletries.

A perfect place..

St Ives is often described as Cornwall’s ‘Jewel in the Crown’ and is one of the UK’s most sought after holiday destinations. With its temperate climate and with not one but five golden sandy beaches, clear Atlantic waters and fabulous coastal scenery, it can’t fail to impress. It’s narrow streets, fashionable shops, restaurants, bars an cafe’s all make St Ives a must visit destination.

For Art lovers St Ives is host to the Tate Gallery, the Barbara Hepworth Museum and the Leach Pottery as well as over 25 commercial art galleries. There is also the St Ives School of Painting for those who wish to participate themselves. Classes can be booked in advance.

For those who wish to explore further, St Ives is well positioned with the north and south coast only a twenty minute drive apart. it is very easy to explore the very different scenery of Cornwall, coastal and inland, without having to travel very far.

Sandy toes are easy and very pleasent to deal with also a nice welcome pack along with flowers on the table.
5 times says it all really and we have booked for 2024 !

Corner Cottage has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay in St Ives. It is in the perfect location in the middle of town, but with the parking permit there are no worries about finding a spot! Visiting in winter, we really appreciated good central heating and the fire in the evenings. The kitchen is also extremely well equipped for a holiday rental, as well as being a really good size. We have visited St Ives many times over the years and this is the best equipped, most comfortable place we have stayed by far!


This was our third visit to Corner Cottage and was a joy to be back. So very clean and comfortable with everything you need and lots of little touches that help to make for a lovely few days away. As it is in the heart of the town, it acts as a great base to explore the town and with the parking permit, you can easily come and go as you wish.
We would highly recommend.


The location of this cottage is perfect!!! the parking space was so valuable. We parked up and didn't drive the car for 4 days and explored St Ives. just off Fore Street the location couldn't have been better. The cottage was clean and fully equipped for any length of stay. I will have no hesitation in booking Corner Cottage again.


Had 3 delightful nights at Corner Cottage. Well-maintained cosy property tastfully furnished in an ideal location within a few minutes walk to all local amenities. Very comfy beds and an extremely cosy lounge with an excellent coal-effect gas fire. Good size kitchen with everything you need for a short break and more. We loved the Christmas decorations!


Gorgeous place to explore St Ives from. Perfect location, right next to the beach and the town centre and round the corner from the Tate. Great to have parking space so no need to worry about finding a spot after a day trip out and about.
We loved the cosy feel of the cottage. Very clean and well maintained.
Would stay here again if we visited St Ives.
