perfect holiday in our favourite place

“This is our second stay at Admiral Cottage, it’s perfectly located and has everything required. We just love it, especially the view from the upstairs bedroom! Another perfect holiday in our favourite place! 

panoramic views

“What a find Admiral Cottage was! 

A big attraction was its location, just off Fore Street but elevated enough to benefit from the most amazing views across the harbour and out to sea. The views from bedroom at the top of the house were panoramic!

Despite being so central it was very quiet and peaceful - you wouldn't know that a few metres away was the very busy centre of St Ives. 

The cottage was well equipped and comfortable, with a great bathroom and free standing bath. It had a lovely family atmosphere - plenty of books, dvd's, a good tv and lots of beach equipment in the utility room. 

Melanie the owner was really efficient throughout the booking procedure and was very friendly and helpful. Communication was simple straightforward.

Thanks Melanie. We hope to return  .”

tucked away

“Tucked away above Fore Street and a minute from the harbour, dog friendly Admiral Cottage is possibly the most central location with the best views available. The master bedroom at the top of the house is a real treat as the window gives a full panorama of the harbour, which can also be seen from the sitting room window too.

 I have stayed in Admiral Cottage three times and would stay again.”
