coxswain’s cottage

Sleeps 6
3 Bedrooms
From £164 per night

Overview

With direct access to the most beautiful beach* in St Ives and an amazing starlit steam room, Coxswain’s Cottage is one of the coolest places in Cornwall. Step off the bustling street and you’ll discover a stylish sanctum of exposed stone walls set across three floors. The converted fisherman’s cottage has been renovated to fit all you would need for a holiday home by the seaside, the cosy interior houses up to six people in three bedrooms.

Living, Kitchen & Dining Areas

On the lower ground floor you’ll find a fully equipped kitchen adjoing the dining area set up for six and a large family bathroom that also converts into a steam room, ideal for post-plunges in the Cornish ocean. To the rear, there’s a small private patio that leads to a secret tunnel opening right onto the sand on Porthmeor Beach*.

On the lower ground floor, expect a cosy living space with a six-person sofa that lovingly fits the entire family for film night.

*Direct access to Porthmeor Beach may not be available in the winter period. But Porthmeor Beach is still just a short walk from the cottage.

The Bedrooms

Upstairs are two king-size bedrooms with crisp white linen and charming touches including wooden latch doors. These two bedrooms also come with their own en-suite shower rooms. Downstairs you’ll find a further third double bedroom.

Dogs

Please note that Coxwain’s Cottage does not allow dogs.

The boutiques and cafés of St Ives are less than two minutes away, while the Tate St Ives gallery is a 5-minute walk from the property.
