Property details

Property imageIn the historic Downalong area of St Ives, Slantways is a fishermans cottage just metres from the Wharf, with 180 degree stunning views over the rooftops to the harbour, St Ives Bay and beyond. It has been refurbished with a view to maintaining the original character as far as possible.

Ground Floor

Kitchen. Generous timber-floored country kitchen with gas fired Rayburn, large pine table, ample storage, original tiling and old Belfast sink. Small electric portable oven with 2 ring hob, microwave, fridge, juicer, coffee grinder etc. The Rayburn heats the house and an immersion heater heats the water. During winter visits, there is nothing like `coming home` to this cosy kitchen after a blustery walk along the beach.

Bathroom. Cottage bath and let-down ceiling rack for drying wet suits and washing.

First Floor

A dozen wooden stairs to landing and WC with wash basin.

Sitting/bedroom area. This is galleried, has beamed high-ceilings and runs the full depth of the house with large windows front and back and exceptional views towards the south over the harbour. Original wide floorboards, panelled cupboards and cast iron fireplace. Simple furnishings include double futon settee, wide single sofa bed and directors chairs and small TV should you ever tire of the wonderful ever-changing day and night-time views of the harbour.

"Amazing little cottage with incredible views"


25 July 2021

"We loved our stay and found the property to be really unique and a really great location with an amazing view of the harbour! The bath doesn’t have a shower so it does require a bit of improvisation, especially after beach days but it added to the experience ;) "

"Lovely place in the perfect location, highly recommended"


12 July 2021

"A small but well-appointed and cosy cottage with a fine view out over the harbour. Set amid charming winding lanes. All the beaches close by. Early dips in the Atlantic. Very enjoyable walks out over the cliffs in one direction to Zennor (fine lunch in the garden of the Tinner's Arms), in the other to Carbis Bay and beyond."

"Great little hideaway in St Ives. A charming escape away."


2 June 2021

"We stayed in Slantways for the May Bank Holiday. The cottage is very well located close to the harbour and pubs. We parked in the leisure centre car park and took the bus into town, its the cheapest and quickest way we found. We would advise you pre-book a table for a meal in advance, as they were all fully booked when we came. Overall we had a lovely time, you really can't beat the views."


14 May 2021

"Very quirky and homely cottage. Perfect to enjoy st Ives, even if you’re not feeling like going out a lot."


22 April 2021

"Such an amazing location and a unique place to stay. We loved sitting upstairs and looking out over the water, and being able to just walk out the door and be in the middle of town. Would love to come back and stay again!"


10 October 2020

"Really great location, bright space, as described, a lovely stay"


26 September 2020

"I had a brilliant time in St Ives. The cottage was excellent in terms of location and view. I loved the feel of the cottage, it's simplicity, features and that it hasn't been modernised. St Ives was crowded and with all the current COVID rules, it was lovely just to sit in, admire the view and listen to the tide coming in. It was a perfect location for beaches, the harbour and The Island. Everything was in walking distance. It felt safe. "


31 August 2020

"Slantways cottage was perfect for us as a couple wanting a little getaway for the summer. The location and views were perfect and the cottage had everything we needed. Would definitely return and recommend"


26 August 2020

"This place is super lovely, full of character and right in the centre of St Ives. It was easy to find and within walking distance from all the main car parks."


13 July 2020

"We had such a good time staying in the cottage! The location is really central, the harbour is a minute walk and the views from the cottage are amazing. Thanks for having us :)"


17 October 2019

"I enjoyed staying here very much, it’s a great location, lovely view, quiet - no traffic noise - and the house is a bit quirky (no shower, just a short bath by the kitchen and no WiFi) and I liked that."


31 August 2019

"Great location, cosy space and fabulous view"


27 August 2019

"Superb location in a lovely authentic cottage next to the harbour and beaches. Everything you need for a fabulous stay in Cornwall. We will be back!"


9 August 2019

"Charming cottage in the middle of town, seagulls flying around with a beautiful view of the harbour - a very cornish place to be!"


25 July 2019

"Unique and charming cottage with lots of taste! The location is very central, we walked everywhere and enjoyed the sea view from the 1st floor (feeling like in a boat). We both had a fantastic stay and would love to come back!"


6 June 2019

"Perfectly located for exploring St Ives, tucked amongst the winding cobbled streets you’ll be shocked how good the view is from the bedroom with a view of the whole bay. The place was exactly the quaint idyllic seaside stay we were after"


8 May 2019

"You are unlikely to find a better located place in St Ives and the views were spectacular. Cornish Riviera’s made the whole process easy and we would highly recommend Slantways as a place to stay."


31 March 2019

"Lovely cottage!"


24 March 2019

"Really recommend this little cottage!! It has a lovely view looking over some rooftops onto the harbour and you can hear the waves if you open the window, which is lovely. I enjoyed the sleeping space up the ladder, especially the view from the little window, but I can see that anyone with mobility issues might struggle with the ladder. I enjoyed having an Aga and loved the kitchen (there's a non-aga option if needed). To me, it was no issue not having wifi or shower (there's a bath!) but not ideal for anyone who really needs the wifi (obviously). Great location really near everything especially the lovely Porthmeor beach. I did hear the seagulls a bit the first night but they didn't particularly bother me and I didn't notice them after that. Cornish Riviera were great at replying quickly when I had a quesiton. Great stay!"


21 October 2018

"Rustic cottage with stunning views of the harbour. You can hear the sea rushing when the tide comes into the harbour. Kitchen well equipped"


24 August 2018

"Lovely place. Nice and close to the promenade and the beaches. Clean, tidy and great view."


6th May

"The property was portrayed as a seaside fisherman's cottage and it was exactly as advertised, . Simple, quaint and full of old fashioned character. It was exactly as we had hoped for in all regards. Change nothing! It was 100%."

Tracy and Patty Klohn from Canada
