    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Puffin Cottage is a pretty Cornish cottage that offers a modern twist on the traditional St Ives fisherman's cottage. Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, yet just ten minutes from the bustling seaside town of St Ives by car or train, the cottage is perfect for a luxury family summer break or as a couple's retreat. A couple of minutes walk away is the newly opened Scarlet wine merchant, cafe and deli, great for a coffee and croissant for breakfast or picking up a bottle of wine to go with dinner. There are also excellent English pubs within walking distance, serving traditional food with pretty beer gardens. If you are a keen birdwatcher, the cottage is situated on the edge of the Hayle estuary, famous for the wide variety of birds that can be spotted on its shores.

The cottage was clean and comfortable and a perfect base for exploring the area. Having the trains and local buses on your doorstep meant we didn't have to constantly go out in the car. A 25 mins walk takes you to the most gorgeous unspoilt beach around and we spent several days just relaxing there. Perfect. more

We had a lovely stay here. It was great that the kitchen was well equipped especially with the little but important things like washing up liquid, tea towels, dishwasher tablets and bin liners. It was very clean & homely too. more
