23) Sea Pebble
Tucked away on one of St Ives’s narrow pedestrian-only side streets, Sea Pebble is an old fisherman’s cottage that has been in the same family for 2 generations. Sympathetically modernised to retain the original layout of rooms and set over 4 floors, this cottage feels like the loved family home it is. Retaining features such as the original Victorian entrance tiles and wooden beams in the sitting room, Sea Pebble has a charm all of its own. As if encouraging you down to the sea, the kitchen floor slopes gently towards the back door – this quirky feature being the last reminder of a time when the room was one of St Ives' world-famous pilchard presses. Step outside the back door and you’re only a few yards from The Harbour.
