Morning Cottage, Carncrows Street St.Ives
The location and outdoor facilities
This lovely spacious cottage is located in the Downalong in old St. Ives, overlooking the sea and situated on the South West coast path. It is characterful, unspoiled and much loved by all who stay there. The harbour, main streets, Tate Gallery and Porthmeor beach are all a few minutes’ walk away, and the garden backs onto a staircase leading down to Porthgwidden beach. There is a barbecue and outdoor table and chairs, so you can sit and enjoy a drink whilst admiring the view. Additional facilities include a private driveway for parking two small or one large car (a big bonus in St. Ives!), an outdoor shower with a hanging rail for wetsuits, access by Carncrows Street and via the back lane for cars, and plenty of beach gear. The property is centrally-heated throughout.
On the ground floor is a well-equipped kitchen with electric cooker, fridge, freezer, microwave, washer/dryer and dining area with seating for six. The kitchen opens out onto a spacious sitting room with two large comfortable sofas, two armchairs, a flat screen TV and DVD player, and an electric piano (so don’t forget to bring your favourite piano music). There is also a downstairs cloakroom with toilet and washbasin.
On the first floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom. The master bedroom has a king-size bed with luxurious memory-foam mattress, lovely views of the sea, a chest of drawers and clothes hanging space, and a personal washbasin with mirror. The second bedroom has two full-size twin beds, a chest of drawers and clothes hanging space, and views onto Carncrows Street. The bathroom has recently been refurbished and features a toilet, bath and separate shower, allowing those with lowered mobility to access the shower with ease. There is also a heated towel rail and washstand with lighted mirror.
On the top floor is the third bedroom, with two single beds under the eaves, big windows and a rocking chair so you can sit and enjoy the fantastic sea views. Bring your binoculars as there are often dolphins passing through the bay! The room offers comfortable memory-foam mattresses, a clothes hanging space and bedside tables with drawers.

Morning Cottage Reviews
This was our second stay at Morning Cottage and we’re already planning our return visit. The location and facilities are second to none and the attention to detail was spot on, with the COVID-19 processes clearly explained. Morning Cottage is delightful – comfortable, cosy yet spacious and benefiting from a new bathroom, warm outdoor shower and two parking spaces. Communication from Sarah, the owner was extremely good and very helpful. Highly recommended!

Had a wonderful stay in Morning Cottage during the St Ives Festival. It’s in an ideal location – very central, but quiet, and close to many great restaurants and cafes – would highly recommend Porthmeor Cafe at sunset! There is also a beautiful beach nearby, and we appreciated the outdoor shower at the cottage when we got back. The house has everything you need, and Sarah provides a hamper with essentials and a bottle of wine, which was a lovely touch. The kitchen is very well equipped, and there is a barbecue area and both indoor and outdoor seating. The views from the garden are fantastic, and it was great to sit outside for all our meals, weather permitting! Inside is spacious and nicely decorated, and there are great views from the top bedroom. Can highly recommend, and will hopefully be back in the not-too-distant future.
