We stay in St Ives all the time & this is by far the BEST location!
The most beautiful fisherman’s cottage.
Lots of thoughtful details, which made our weekend perfect
Thank you x


Our week’s stay at Nancy's Cottage was fantastic. The house was perfect, great kitchen area with loads of space, decor all new and modern. Beds super comfy and towels super soft. All the added extras like wetsuits, beach trolley, wine chiller, large fridge and two TV’s made everyone very happy.

All communication was super fast and really helpful. We will be back for sure.


I cannot recommend Sandy Toes enough. The original property I booked for had to cancel at quite short notice due to essential maintenance so Sandy Toes stepped in and let me know what other properties were available for our dates and went out of their way to help.
We booked for Nancy's Cottage and whilst we were travelling down,  we were called by Lisa to advise that the property was ready and we could go in straight away when we arrived, which was ahead of schedule and a welcome relief after a long drive.
We had a bottle of wine and some Cornish biscuits on arrival.
Nancy's cottage is beautiful and perfectly situated right in the heart of St Ives. A 2 minute walk to the beach and town.
We had a small issue whilst in the cottage but Sandy Toes were fantastic, really helpful and reassured us immediately.
It seems like nothing is too much trouble for Sandy Toes and they provide a brilliant service for their customers, particularly Lisa who we dealt with.
I would 100% recommend them and would not hesitate to use them again.

Our stay at Nancys cottage was amazing 🤩 the house has everything you need, close to the beaches and town.
Lisa is great and always reply’s to your messages within the hour!
Can’t wait to return!


1st Stay

Nancy’s cottage is absolutely stunning. It’s one of those quant old fisherman’s cottages, decorated to a very high standard and well equipped.

It’s situated right in the heart of St Ives , within easy walking distance to the beaches and renowned cafe restaurants and shops.
It’s so good we are returning in 2022.

2nd Stay

Nancys Cottage is a perfect stay in St Ives. You are surrounded by beautiful beaches and only a short walking distance from the harbour, quant high street with lovely individual shops and out standing restaurants.

Nancys cottage is well equipped for all your needs , it’s like a boutique hotel, what a find.  This is our second stay and we will definitely return again.


Stunning home, beautifully presented and equipped with all the essentials to a very high standard. The property is very well laid out and easy to find, check-in was super easy and we both enjoyed the homely touch of the Christmas tree’s in the home which made us feel like a home from home.
The games / chillout space on the top floor was a hit for my son to relax.


Lovely location. Well equiped home. Tastefully decorated. We enjoyed popping in to town for dinner and sitting by the fireplace in the evening.


Fabulous place to stay for a getaway in St. Ives. The house is fully stocked and the finishings are impeccable - highly recommend and would absolutely stay here again.
