Newly renovated, vibrant and colourful cottage..

The compact and bijou ground floor welcomes you to a living room, custom crafted kitchen cabinetry, a window seat, one-off pieces of furniture, prints and artwork filling Libby Cottage's with a profusion of colour and personality, all of which culminate in a home that’s not only unique, but also extremely inviting.

Three bedrooms offers space for five guests, with a first floor shower room and WC and a double bedroom with panelled walls and a re-creation of some of the previous owners artwork and hidden gems. The second floor has a further double bedroom with exposed rafters high ceiling and a small double 4ft bedroom ideal for a teenager. Here you can spend your days exploring the winding streets and narrow lanes of the town, ducking in and out of art galleries, perusing boutiques and sampling local eateries.

The new owners have certainly stamped their own quirky, fun and fabulous style on Libby's Cottage in the past 12 months. With the location as great ever you are only just a minutes walk from Porthgwidden or Porthmeor Beach. Due to the compact nature of the cottage with original features and stairs we will accept one small behaved dog at the property. A perfect bolthole for a family holiday or for a couple in the quieter winter months looking for somewhere more imaginative than the usual ‘themed’ cottages in St Ives.

A perfect place..

Libby'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 stay for families without any need to use your car. Just perfect for relaxing and enjoying everything that St Ives has to offer.

We had a lovely stay over the Easter weekend. Libby's Cottage is beautifully presented with thoughtful decor and amenities. Super easy to find and in the heart of St Ives. Lovely welcome gifts on arrival too. As others have mentioned, there is no parking at the house but Lisa provided easy online options so I had that organised before we got there. Overall a wonderful stay and we'll certainly be back!
