Step inside this creative retreat..

The property welcomes you into a generous living room adorned with Alexandra’s artwork which first grabs your attention, filling the space with vibrant colour and light. Thoughtful touches of colour and texture in the soft furnishings, a smart TV and a reading desk complete the room. Neighbouring the living room is a bright contemporary kitchen, well equipped with integrated appliances and an induction hob, electric oven and microwave. An inviting breakfast/dining corner concludes the kitchen, comfortably seating 4 to indulge in any holiday feast.

A unique feature of Number Ten is its generous conservatory overlooking the private courtyard garden. The conservatory houses an integrated washer dryer and a fridge. 4 wicker chairs gather around a central coffee table creating a conversational spot as the sun smiles down into the room.

The courtyard garden is ideal for families with children to have space to run around and play with the dog or those summer evening BBQs and glasses of wine relaxing in the sun on the outdoor furniture.

On the first first floor are the 2 bedrooms, the first being the main radiant double bedroom decorated with more of Dickens’ artworks and complete with ample clothing storage, TV and mirror. The second bedroom includes 2 twin single beds and additional storage in pull out drawers from underneath the beds.

We had an amazing stay (helped by glorious weather).
The location could not be better with the beach minutes in one direction and the harbour minutes in the other. St Ives has so many amazing places to eat all within a 5 minute walk. And the local shop was very local!
The house is exactly as described and very clean when we arrived.
The beds were comfy and the space ideal for our family of 4 (2 kids aged 9 and 12). We especially appreciated the courtyard garden which was secure, and that we could access without going through the house. It had patio furniture for eating lunch outside, a useful washing line and even a hot water hose which was fantastic for rinsing sandy feet.
It really was a fantastic stay. And when our van (parked up at the Rugby club) wouldn’t start on our leaving day, the managing company were so helpful. They ferried us and all our stuff up to the Rugby Club for us to await the AA man, on what seemed to be a very busy changeover day. Thank you so much!


Number Ten is an immaculately presented cottage right in the centre of old St Ives within easy reach of the beaches and shops. The courtyard to the rear is a super bonus and is peaceful private and quiet, most unusual for a property in this location.
Lisa and the team are a pleasure to deal with and we have no hesitation in recommending the cottage! We will certainly visit again!


An absolute gem of a place. I have stayed in many properties in st ives and this stood out for the following: a rare outside area in the heart of the harbour: such a bonus when you have dogs; lobby area: again perfect to dry off sandy dogs and leave wet suits; walls adorned with the beautiful artwork of alexandra dickens: a real treat. In additon, so comfortably equipped and furnished with style. Lots of space as well. 100 %


Thank you for such an amazing stay. This property is in the perfect location within St Ives and even being so close to the Harbour/restaurants etc it still remained quiet and peaceful in the evenings. Lisa was a great host, incredibly responsive when messaging and even left us a card and bottle to congratulate us on our wedding. 5 stars!!


The location is amazing and the house very clean and well equipped. The courtyard, and warm outside tap, were perfect for cleaning off after a trip to the beach. We loved staying and hope to come back. Lisa was prompt in communication and was very helpful.


Great place to stay, Well equipped, perfectly located in The heart of St Ives. Very Nice to have The backyard, sunny from Morning to evening. So many things to do in St Ives as well, Great restaurants and shops. But best of all: The beaches and the scenery, truly breathtaking!


Number Ten is great! Just a stone’s throw from the centre and the beach, you have access to all St Ives with just a few steps.
The apartment is spacious and clean, well fitted for a family. We particularly loved the external patio for our meals 😍
