Tucked away in arguably the most famous street in St Ives, Iris is a beautifully restored fisherman’s cottage full of character and unique features.
The cottage’s maritime history can be seen throughout with eye-catching wallpaper and the oar bannister adding a quirky touch.
Beautiful hand-crafted oak beams and an exposed stone wall give a nod to the building’s humble past which has been reimagined into a stylish open plan space for families and friends to reconnect after salty days by the sea. The flickering wood burner provides a toasty spot to spend lazy evenings and the two inviting bedrooms offer a serene space for a peaceful night’s sleep.
The shared courtyard is a peaceful spot for an evening tipple before heading out to sample some of the local seafood delicacies.
St Ives’ cobbled streets are lined with colourful cottages, independent shops and artists’ galleries, taking inspiration from the surrounding waters shimmering turquoise and blue in the magical Cornish sun. Iris is perfectly positioned for lazy beach days with two beautiful stretches of golden sand moments from your front door.
Iris has been awarded a 5 star gold grading from Visit England and a Green Tourism award
