About this property

Tucked away in arguably the most famous street in St Ives, Iris forms part of a stunning collection of beautifully restored fisherman’s cottages that are full of character and unique features. Rated by Visit England as 5 star Gold, the cottages have also been given a Green Tourism Award and have most recently won Silver in the Self-catering Accommodation of the year category at the Cornwall Tourism Awards for 2020/2021.

The cottage’s maritime history can be seen throughout with eye-catching wallpaper and the oar bannister adding a quirky touch. Beautiful hand-crafted oak beams and an exposed stone wall give a nod to the building’s humble past which has been reimagined into a stylish open plan space for families and friends to reconnect after salty days by the sea. The flickering wood burner provides a toasty spot to spend lazy evenings and the two inviting bedrooms offer a serene space for a peaceful night’s sleep. The shared courtyard is a peaceful spot for an evening tipple before heading out to sample some of the local seafood delicacies.

St Ives’ cobbled streets are lined with colourful cottages, independent shops and artists’ galleries, taking inspiration from the surrounding waters shimmering turquoise and blue in the magical Cornish sun. Iris is perfectly positioned for lazy beach days with two beautiful stretches of golden sand moments from your front door.
