Honest Cottage in St Ives

General Information

Honest Cottage is a proper Downalong cottage in one of the oldest streets in St Ives. Its new owners have created something really special.

Fish Street is one of the oldest parts of St Ives starting at the harbour's old slipway and leading away towards the Island.  Fish street is central to everything in St Ives and perfect for beaches, pubs, restaurants and the Tate.


Open plan living space with amazing exposed beams.  These are ship's masts and spars from local sailing vessels that met an unfortunate end as wrecks in St Ives bay.  These knarled pieces of salvaged timber tell a story of heroism, tragedy and ultimately the resourcefulness of the Cornish people.

1950's style armchair and sofa, and original laser-cut Formica laminated sideboard by local artisan craftman.

32" LCD HD ready TV and BluRay DVD player.

Dining table to seat 4 with vibrant retro style chairs.

Funky blue painted wooden fitted kitchen with dishwasher, washer/dryer, fridge freezer and electric oven & hob.

A good sized sunny backyard with wood decked seating and floor and whitewashed walls.  Great for an evening glass of wine and handy for drying wetsuits and storing boards.

Upstairs features a gorgeous double room with double bed, LCD TV and window seat with timber sash window looking onto Fish Street.  Beautiful feature wallpaper and a subtle palette of blue-grey panelling and woodwork.

Wonderful bunkroom with bespoke ship's cabin bunks with portholes.  Designer feature wallpaper, wardrobe and timber sash window onto Fish Street.

Family bathroom with powerful thermostatic mixer shower over a P-shaped bath.
