The House

I Island Square is a Grade II listed house situated in conservation area, minutes away from the busy harbour and beautiful sandy beaches.

It is built on three levels. The cellar, with a stable door out to a small courtyard, was originally used for mending nets and storage. There is a boat ring under the floor used for pulling boats up the hill from the harbour to overwinter them. Also discovered in the floor was a very large deep box, possibly used for storing crab bait. From the thirties, this room was used as a kitchen with table and chairs for family meals and it remains today a large live-in kitchen.

The ground floor consists of two reception rooms. There is spacious living room with the family harmonium which originated in Philadelphia at the turn of the twentieth century and which in the last century was played by most of the family for hymn singing and family gatherings. There is second a smaller room with desk for those who need to do some work whilst on holiday.
The three bedrooms on the first floor originally had jug and bowls in the room for washing but we are pleased to say there is now also a modern bathroom with a full sized bath and shower. 


To help plan your stay


There are lots of small foods shops throughout the town centre including a Co-operative supermarket. However, if you want to do a fuller shop, we recommend either visiting Tesco (approximately a 10 minute drive away and which you pass when you drive into St Ives) or by ordering online and getting it delivered.  The Tesco supermarket is open 8 to 8 Monday to Saturday and 10 to 4 on Sunday. You can order online by clicking here. The cottage postcode is TR26 1NX (address 1 Island Square). If you are ordering on your day of arrival, please make sure that you schedule the delivery for after you arrive otherwise you may not receive it!

For those emergency purchases, Norway Stores is less than 5 minutes away and is open every day of the week from early to late.

Please bring your own beach towels!
