Property code: 88406

Beautiful period cottage with modern interiors and fabulous sea views, the perfect retreat for families and couples seeking the Cornish seaside.

The traditional cottage enjoys an elevated position and far-reaching sea views. Sleeping four guests plus one hairy hound, the property is perfect for couples and small families. The holiday home is 2 miles from St Ives, where you’ll find a fantastic range of woof-welcoming cafes and restaurants. Spend your days on one of the dog-friendly beaches, or let Fido lead the way along the dramatic coast path. After a day of sight-seeing, return to your cosy cottage to enjoy a sundowner on the balcony.

The cute cottage oozes personality, with an eclectic collection of nautical accessories and vibrant soft furnishings, and a modern decor cleverly sitting alongside original features. The snug is on the ground floor and is a cosy place to snuggle up after a coastal walk, reading a book whilst the dogs doze by the wood burner. The kitchen is also on this floor, along with a vibrant dining area. Completing this level is an inviting twin bedroom and a family bathroom. Upstairs, you’ll find a striking lounge, with comfortable seating and an office area, opening out onto a balcony. The double bedroom is also on this floor, along with a handy shower room. Outside, discover a sunny garden, arranged across different levels, along with a summerhouse. This area is enclosed, making it ideal for your canine buddies.

St Ives is extremely dog friendly, with many shops and eateries welcoming four-pawed visitors. Wander along the cobbled streets and admire the flower-covered cottages, before browsing in one of the boutiques or galleries. Head to the bustling harbour, where you and the woofers can hop on a boat trip to visit Seal Island. St Ives has, arguably, some of Cornwall’s best beaches, with golden sand and turquoise waters. Both Bamaluz Beach and Lambeth Walk Beach are paw friendly all year round.

Lovely quirky cottage in a great spot for exploring St Ives/Carbis Bay on foot or by bus if you dont have a car. Garden ideal for a dog, secure (unless you have a 2 year old Spaniel able to clear a 5 foot high, 2 foot deep wall) Kitchen well equipped, 2 good size bathrooms. Beautiful views from the balcony.

A lovely clean cottage which is conveniently located for St Ives with Carbis Bay beach close by. The sea view from the upstairs lounge is wonderful and binoculars have been thoughtfully provided. It is is well equipped and just like 'home from home'. Stairs inside the cottage and the rear garden steps are quite steep (extra care needed when using).Read more The bus stops outside the front of the cottage which not only saved the walk into St Ives but also gave options to visit places such as Penzance.

We had a lovely stay in Chy An Gweal, Carbis Bay. The cottage was beautiful and was in a fantastic location, about a mile walk into St Ives. The cottage its self had everything we needed for a perfect stay. The owner had thought of everything to make our stay very comfortable. I would highly recommend this property to family and friends.
