Traditional cottage in a rural paradise..

Gorse Cottage is a tastefully converted property, which was formerly part of a farm complex. Its location is a rural paradise for those wanting some time away from the crowds, yet who also want to enjoy the beaches and the buzz of St Ives. Rather than seagull cries you will hear the soothing sounds of birdsong and the fragrance of flowers will waft in the warm air from the bushes in the garden.

Gorse Cottage has two bedrooms with the main bedroom having a double bed and the second bedroom being able to sleep up to two in twin singles. The bathroom is on the same floor as the bedrooms. Walk in from the garden into a bright open plan well-equipped kitchen, dining area and a living room for up to four people with the focal point being a wood burner. You will have plenty of wood during your stay ensuring you are warm and comfortable whatever the time of year. Gorse Cottage has it’s own parking space, free WiFi, BBQ, washing machine, tumble dryer, body boards and a variety of wet suits for guest to use.

With the wood burner, artwork and delightful garden, Gorse Cottage offers a complete ‘home from home’ experience and more. Original artwork can be found throughout the cottage and the well-stocked garden is a delight. There are plenty of games, DVDs and local maps and for the art lover and garden enthusiast there are numerous books to enjoy.

A perfect place..

Dogs are very welcome at Gorse Cottage and the garden is ideal for all the family; a safe haven for children to play or just somewhere to sit and relax after a day on the beach. For walkers there are spectacular walks on your doorstep. Go for an invigorating walk via Rosewall Hill to Zennor taking in the stunning views of St Ives, or stroll up to Knill’s monument which is on St Michael’s Way.

Whilst Gorse Cottage boasts plenty of rural charm it’s a perfect base for visiting the many attractions of South West Cornwall and visitors return year after year to walk along the coast path.

We had a wonderful stay at Gorse Cottage for our first time in St Ives, would definitely recommend staying here! The cottage is so cosy and peaceful, a great place to relax in a rural, hidden location. It had everything we needed, was really clean and has a lovely garden (which our 2 pups loved!). 5 minute drive into the centre of St Ives, 15 min walk (although hard work on the way back up- great for burning off Cornish pasties!). We would love to return in the winter and use the fabulous log burner fire 🙂


We had a lovely stay in Gorse cottage. It is in a good location close to St Ives meaning it was easier to drive around and explore Cornwall. The cottage was very clean and cosy, especially with the wood burner on! The self check in was also very convenient. I would definitely recommend the cottage to others.


Just returned from a much needed break at Gorse Cottage. We all slept well in very comfortable beds with crisp white bed linen. We enjoyed the artwork, amenities (especially log burner) and proximity to many beautiful locations. Would thoroughly recommend and hope to return again.
