Welcome to Admiral Cottage

…a boutique holiday cottage right here in the heart of St Ives

Admiral Cottage is situated in the heart of St Ives, Cornwall with its blue flag beaches, artists community and wonderful food. This bright pretty cottage has wonderful sea views and  is fully equipped for families of up to 6 with open plan dining and living space, attic studio, large bathroom, 2 downstairs bedrooms and cloakroom. There is also a utility room and a small garden (a rarity in central St Ives).

The House

A beautiful, boutique seaside cottage with panoramic views of the harbour


Admiral Cottage sleeps 4 adults and 2 children. Small pets accepted by prior appointment.


The cottage is bright and airy, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main streets. It has panoramic views of the harbour, pier and island from both the garden, lounge windows and the attic studio bedroom. The cottage has been renovated to a high standard. 


The cottage is perfect for small families and couples.

St Ives

St Ives has a film set quality, the jumble of whitewashed, slate hung cottages climbing away from the fishing harbour; the white sands, palms and beach cabins of Porthminster Beach so reminiscent of the French Riviera and in complete contrast but just minutes away, the heavy surf and salt laden winds of Porthmeor Beach.

Set up camp on one of the five gorgeous sandy beaches, go fishing or hiking along the wild coast or take a boat trip to see the seals and (if you’re lucky) a pod of dolphins.
