Just a lovely house.

We have been taking holidays at the Ship House for twelve years so we know exactly what we are getting and it suits us very well. All dealings with Classic Cottages were highly efficient and most satisfactory. The house was in excellent order for us; it is a beautiful property and a fascinating one. Decor and furniture are tasteful, comfortable and relaxing; all influenced by the touch, mind and hand of an artist. The age range this year was 6 to 76 and we all had a marvellous time, largely due to such an inviting, stimulating and comfortable environment....

An incredibly beautiful place. The house was so unique and the gardens were spectacular. I wish we had had a month to stay there rather than just a week. Located in a lovely neighborhood and very private.

We have been to Cornwall many times but not to the St Ives area as we thought it far too busy in August. This house, however, is in a quiet location with gorgeous garden, 5 mins to a lovely estuary walk and 15 minutes walk to an amazingly unused beach - with lifeguard - although be prepared for a good walk out to sea for a swim. (Note dogs on this beach which are usually off- lead). Porthminster beach only a few minutes on train for more accessible beach and amenities - or an hour’s coast path walk. We all - aged 3 to 70- loved the house and location....
