Sea views across the harbour and bay..

Offering first class holiday living the cottage is arranged over 3 floors with 3 boutique bathrooms all located on the first floor, 3 beautiful bedrooms one of which is located in the eaves of the top floor offering a wonderful view of the harbour and town. Step inside the cottage to a comfortable and relaxing lounge space, the open plan living and dining area all completed with a small bespoke but fully fitted hand-built kitchen and banquette seating, the kitchen has been thoughtfully considered to help create perfect holiday menus.

The stairs to the first floor provides 3 newly fitted bathrooms oozing stylish simplicity and understated elegance all with the very best fixtures and fittings for the perfect hamper.  The main bathroom with bath and overhead shower is also completed by the washing machine and dryer.  A separate shower room on this floor enables everyone to freshen up after a busy day on the beach without the need for any waiting or a queue…. Both the stylish bedrooms on the first floor can be prepared as a larger bed or split to twin beds depending on your choice making this an enviable option for those visiting as couples or those with a younger family enjoying a holiday together. The second bedroom has its own ensuite neatly located behind the sliding barn doors.

Stairs to the top floor takes you to the upstairs snug and sitting room, this fantastic light room with its stunning views might be difficult to leave in any weather or time of year. This enclosed vantage point with panoramic views of the harbour and the North Cornish coastline, the rooftops and bustling town. The final bedroom is located opposite with an additional sleeping space for a small child enhancing the facilities that this wonderful cottage provides.

An outside shower from the rear kitchen door is perfectly placed to wash off the salt and sand after a day on the water. A short wander down to the harbour to explore the boutique shops and cool cafes and restaurants all on the door step.

A perfect place..

Beautiful interiors, luxury cottage ambiance and a plumb St Ives location - just some of the reasons that Fauna Cottage will become your perfect coastal idyll. In close proximity to all of the local shops, bars, restaurants and beaches. You will feel truly immersed in the hustle and bustle of all that St Ives harbour has to offer.

Amazing location, very short walking distance to 5 beaches! Luxury feel throughout. The whole cottage is just so special, especially to see the views of the harbour from the top living room. Loved the kitchen, particularly as I had a birthday cake and roast to make, so the double oven was a treat. The nearest beach is just a few steps away and I started every morning with a walk on the beach and spotted a seal twice! 

A lovely house, so glad we found it. It was the perfect holiday. The views from the first and second floors are amazing.  The harbour outlook stimulated me to bring out my paints to paint the scenery.  We enjoyed walking the coastal paths both ways to Carbis Bay / Lelant and towards Zennor. Again breath-taking views. Nearby the beaches, restaurants, cafes, shops, and art galleries are right on the doorstep. 

We had an amazing stay at Fauna cottage. It's in an ideal location, easy to walk to the train station, and to get to all the shops, pubs, and cafes. It's new and clean, with ample bathrooms for the 6 of us. Loved the shower. The loft view is stunning, come rain and shine. Watching the colours change throughout the day was the highlight of our Cornish trip. Also we loved the great location for a cold winter swim then quick run back to the house for a warm shower! Highly recommended.

We have just enjoyed our second stay at the amazing Fauna Cottage while discovering Cornwall. It has an idyllic setting, where you get a mix of everything for your holiday. Only mins away from the sea and the hilly country walks, were the perfect space to recover from our hectic work schedule. The great views are to die for and are the perfect backdrop while having to complete an urgent report. The wifi was excellent!! The owners provided us with some restaurant recommendations which we would never have discovered without their help, tucking into many Cornish delights. We will be back as soon as we can. 

We loved our stay at Fauna Cottage.  This cottage has been beautifully renovated and is both modern and cosy at the same time. Its central location meant we could live like locals, with no need to drive anywhere, as shops, restaurants and local beaches were all easy walking distance.
The kitchen was spotless and well equipped for self-catering and the cottage has enough bathrooms 3 to match the 3 bedrooms, which is key for me! 
We literally enjoyed ‘Champagne views’ of the bay from the top floor and could not fault the cottage or its location.  We hope to stay here next time we are in St Ives!
