The Shutters is so quirky, perfectly equipped with lots of little living spaces for the family to do their own thing and what an amazing location, seconds walk from the Main Street and right in the middle of 3 beautiful golden beaches. St Ives is totally idyllic, a slow pace, lovely weather and so much to see and do. Definitely worth our 12 hour drive from Scotland!!

I cannot speak highly enough of this beautiful little cottage and it's wonderful hosts.

We arrived on a Friday afternoon in September and parked the car at Island car park (as we were there until Monday we purchased a 4 day ticket which was £7.50 for every 24 hours). The car park was a 2 minute walk from the cottage and we had no problem parking there in September.

The cottage itself was immaculate, there was ample space for 4 adults, plenty of storage and even tea/coffee and milk- with a box of chocolates also!

The cottage is so uniquely designed and they've really made the most of the space. The decor is lovely too- beach themed with lots of lovely old beams in the master bedroom and original slash windows.

I think the best thing about 'Shutters' though has to be it's location- a 3 minute walk through lovely old narrow streets to Porthgwidden beach and 30 steps from Porthmeor! The location is just amazing for all of St Ives' shops, cafes and restaurants however, the cottage is on a very quiet lane.

We can't wait to go back!!

“Excellent holiday home in a fantastic location”
Reviewed 8 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This is a fantastic and quirky property with all the little extra touches that make it a well appointed home from home.
Location is in a very narrow and steep cobbled lane which adds to the old world charm, and is about a 15 second walk to the sandy harbour., or a two minute walk up the hill to the next beach.
The owners Jenny and Chris are very pleasant and provide good advice regarding parking etc.
We will be returning in the future!
