We are the Martin family.

We bought Admiral Cottage in 1990 and Birdsong in 2001 and have spent the last 30 odd years renovating them and making them into family holiday homes. William (dad) is the Architect and Melanie (mum) is the organiser, decorator, manager (everything else!). We love these houses and we love St Ives and we hope that we get to share these beautiful homes with you. 

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch, we are always happy to chat and will help with your holiday to St Ives in any way that we can (we have a wealth of knowledge about St Ives and the local area and plenty of ideas of what to do and how to have great holidays in the area (/keep 4 children entertained year on year!)). 

All our photos are family photos we have taken over the years, mainly by our son - Josh - you can see see more of his photography here.
