Pilchard Cottage is a luxury three bedroom self catering holiday cottage on Fish Street, in the heart of St Ives with parking.
Pilchard Cottage is a former fishermans cottage refurbished to a very high standard, sleeping six people in three double bedrooms.

Garage parking is just paces away from the cottage, a real rarity to property in this location.

Situated in the old fishing quarter and conservation area of Downalong, the very heart of old St Ives full of twisting turning narrow streets scattered with many art galleries, great restaurants and fascinating architecture, completely enclosed by the harbour and surrounding sandy beaches.

The perfect location for surfing or lounging on the beach (the Harbour beach is just paces away), visiting galleries (the Tate is a 3 minute walk) or for exploring St Ives (shops, restaurants, pubs and several beaches all just a short stroll away).

The cottage is arranged over three floors and benefits from a small patio that catches the morning sun. For those cooler evenings the central heating and real flame fire make things nice and cosy.

Sorry, no pets are allowed at Pilchard Cottage.

Guests Reviews

We had another lovely stay in Pilchard Cottage, the So St Ives team have been great both visits, discreet but really helpful, particularly when we did a last minute booking and then travelled on the same day! As before, the cottage was spotless and had all that we needed for a comfortable stay. I’d definitely recommend using So St Ives and look forward to coming back again soon.

We are just back from a fabulous week in St Ives. We were lucky to be able to stay in this delightful house just minutes from the harbour and 5 mins from 2 lovely beaches. The house was well stocked and had everything we needed to make it a comfortable week for all of us. The other positive is the property comes with a garage space which is rare in St Ives and it is also very close to the house. All the restaurants/eating places/shops are close at hand to this house which was a huge benefit. A little courtyard was useful for our wetsuits/body boards and to sit out and enjoy the sunny weather.. I can recommend this house to anyone wanting to be central for everything! Thank you Alan, Sharon and the So St Ives team for being so helpful with the booking.

We chose Pilchard Cottage for a winter break and had a great time. The cottage is ideal if you want a bit of space with a choice of living areas, a bonus if you have children or want to relax indoors for an extended period of time. Everything done to a high standard and well designed by the owners. The agency, So St Ives, are very attentive and never left anything to chance. Five stars all round :-)

We have just returned from a one week stay at Pilchard Cottage and we have to say, we couldn't have chosen a better cottage. Ideally located just seconds away from the Harbour Beach and the hustle and bustle of the town but at the same time, the cottage gave us a good feeling of privacy. The cottage was well equipped throughout to a very high standard. Complimentary tea, coffee and wine was an absolute bonus. We look forward to returning and would definitely recommend.

We booked Pilchard cottage last minute when lockdown was eased. It's a very long time since our last self catering holiday, but was not disappointed in fact it exceeded all our expectations !! Had a problem with the wifi but Alan sorted it immediately. Very high standard throughout, very clean, and second to none location !! Would definitely stay there again!

PILCHARD COTTAGE: A well-appointed cottage in a great location. A stones throw from St Ives harbour and only a short walk to Porthmeor beach. Having the use of the garage is a real convenience. Our stay incorporated New Years Eve and as always St Ives knows how to put on a party! The cottage was warm and a great space for 2 adults and 2 teenage children, nicely furnished, clean and well equipped. The Christmas decorations and welcome gifts were a lovely thought and treat!

A week at a pilchard cottage was great. The whole process from booking to check out was excellent. Alan at So St Ives was very helpful to making the booking. The cottage was well stocked with treats, dvd's & having access to Amazon was a god send. With 3 boys aged 12 to 15 and two 55 year olds it was just the relaxing break we needed. Highly recommend So St Ives as booking agents.

PILCHARD COTTAGE: We had searched for the right place to stay in St Ives for a while and settled on Pilchard cottage as it looked of a high standard and had a great location for the beach and shops. We were so happy when we arrived to see how beautiful it was in the flesh. The images don't do it justice and the location was so perfect for the beach, shops and restaurants. We were able to pop back after the beach for refreshments or a shower and back out again to have lunch. Alan and Sharon have thought of everything, the smallest of details making our stay like a home from home. We are already planning a return.

PILCHARD COTTAGE. This lovely cottage is perfect in every way. I felt a little like Goldilocks during the week as there was so much space. I had a morning family room for reading and another evening family for the same thing! The pictures are right on. Everything is as it appears! The garage parking was an added bonus for me as I had rented a car for the week. I felt like a local in every way as my host had left a very specific list of dining choices and sightseeing options. Throughou the week I visited every suggested site and dined at all but one restaurant. My host also left wine and cookies along with milk in the fridge. I co taced the hist about something and had a reply in short order. I can not find one single negative to this cottage. I plan to bring my family back to this lovely slice of heaven.

PILCHARD COTTAGE. Booking was so easy, we booked the day before for a last minute, short break. Pilchard Cottage was everything that the owners described and so much more, from the excellent quality of the fittings & equipment, to all of the little unexpected extras included. Welcome gifts were a nice touch even milk In the fridge. The property was spotlessly cleaned. I would recommend it to all of the family who often want to stay in the centre of St Ives. Parking is a stones throw away & so conveniently located. We have been visiting the town for over 45yrs & this is the best appointed property we have ever stayed at. The only minus is the amount of steps, if you are not so good on your legs. We will certainly be booking again as we loved it so much, can't wait!

PILCHARD COTTAGE. We could not fault Pilchard Cottage, it is so bright, clean and everything is to an extremely high standard. The space has been utilised so well providing all modern equipment, crisp linen, plenty of storage, it has been beautifully thought out. Location excellent too. Outside space is under cover so great for leaving your sandy boots outside. Treats await upon arrival, thank you!!!

PILCHARD COTTAGE. A lovely home and a really great place to stay in St Ives. You really couldn't be more central. And to have a parking space so close to the front door really sets it apart. The upfront info/website is so accurate and detailed that everything is self explanatory. We'd definitely stay here again!

PILCHARD COTTAGE. The property was spotlessly clean and the garage is an absolute gift in the bustling streets of St Ives where parking is limited. Booking was a breeze and Alan provided the warmest welcome, he dealt with our enquires and brought St Ives alive with his local knowledge and passion for the area. The perfect host for the perfect stay... we could not have asked for more! Well... other than to perhaps have stayed a little longer!!
