Welcome to corner cottage

– is a Grade 2 listed fisherman’s cottage which has been tastefully renovated to provide a warm and welcoming home for your stay in the heart of Downalong St Ives.
The house is accessed by granite steps which lead to the front door where you can catch a glimpse of the sea.
The cottage is situated just yards from the beautiful surfers beach at Porthmeor and the fabulous Tate Gallery. The harbour, shops, restaurants and bars are all just minutes away.
Corner Cottage is situated in The Digey, a lovely cobbled street that connects Porthmeor beach to the bustling Fore Street with its many individual shops, great eateries and art galleries.
It is the perfect location for surfing or just lazing on the beach at Porthmeor as the beach is just twenty yards from the cottage. The Tate Gallery is opposite the beach. The fabulous Porthmeor Café, which is perfect at any time of the day but can be extra special to sit and watch the sun go down – with a glass of Prosecco perhaps! – all are practically on your doorstep.

All other amenities, the other four beaches, restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and galleries are just steps away in the opposite direction.


St Ives, often described as Cornwall’s ‘Jewel in the Crown’, is one of the UK’s most sought after holiday destinations.
With its temperate climate and five golden sandy beaches, clear Atlantic water and fabulous coastal scenery, it can’t fail to impress.
Its narrow cobbled streets, fashionable shops, restaurants, bars and cafes all make St Ives a must visit destination.

For art lovers St Ives is the home of the Tate gallery, the Barbara Hepworth museum and the Leach Pottery as well as more than 25 independent galleries.

Guest Reviews

“Tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean cottage in a fantastic location, just a hop and a skip from West beach. I’d love to return one day.”

“We had such a great stay here. The cottage is spotless and beautifully decorated in great condition. Fantastic central location. Very comfy beds and settees and powerful shower. Despite being a cottage there was plenty of space. The provided beach equipment was really useful. We can’t think of anything we would change and will definitely try to come back.”

“This really is the most perfect place! Corner Cottage has all you need and more, it is spotlessly clean, well equipped, cosy, quiet and the location is wonderful. Linda and Julie are really fabulous hosts. The small details such as some milk, tea bags, coffee and fresh flowers show you just how thoughtful they are and how much pride they take in Corner Cottage. Thank you for the most amazing stay it was PERFECT!”
