I have just returned from a wonderful week at 3 Fish Street with my wife and daughter (7). The accommodation was clean, comfortable and perfectly situated just a few yards from the Sloop Inn, the Harbour with all its shops, eateries and arcades, and a short stroll to the Tate and all the beaches.
There was plenty of space for the three of us and the cottage was very well equipped. We made use of the washing machine a couple of times, cooked a couple of meals on the hob (although with all the great restaurants nearby it is tempting to eat out all the time) and enjoyed the free Netflix on the two smart TV's when the weather wasn't so good.
Derek made us feel very welcome with lots of useful information before we arrived and a much appreciated and needed plate of scones with cream and jam on our arrival. It's the little touches that make all the difference.
It was a shame to have to leave, but we have vowed to return!

Here's our top 5 things to do:
1: It goes without saying the beaches are superb. Porthgwidden was our favorite, small, sheltered and lots of waves to splash about in.
2: The Rum and Crab Shack. Does what it says on the tin. Lovely fresh whole crab and wonderful rum infused dishes (don't miss the rum, lime and ginger ice cream!)
3: The Seafood Cafe. Wonderful, fresh seafood dishes packed with flavour and surprisingly good value given the quality and quantity on offer. The coconut and coriander mussels were the best I've ever eaten. And the salt and pepper squid with Asian dipping sauce was heavenly.
4: The Tate Gallery has loads of activities to keep the kids occupied while you look at the art. It has a great gift shop and a fabulous café, which is slightly expensive but the views over St Ives make up for it.
5: The Kids R Us theatre. Whether you have kids with you or not do not miss the chance to go see one of their productions. Surely one of the best youth theatres in the country their performances are always a real treat. We saw The Wizard of Oz last year and The Little Mermaid this year. Great songs, great sets, great performances from the kids and even a radio controlled inflatable shark floating around the stalls!

“LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!!”

Me, my Wife and our 6 week old boy decided to book here on the previous reviews, as well as the location looking ideal for carting a small child around. We were certainly not disappointed!
PROs:
- A few seconds to the Port, shops, Restaurants.
- All beaches within a few minutes walk
- Apartment is clean, modernised, and has everything you need
- 5 minute walk to Island Car park, where we left our car for £35 for the week (may have to wait 10 minutes for a space to be free).
- Truly a home from home - Derek and Liz couldn't do enough for us!

CONs
- I'm fussy, and I couldn't find any!

Thanks again to Derek and Liz, we have already recommended you place to several people looking to visit St.Ives in the near future! x

Great fishermans cottage perfectly located in the heart of St Ives, Harbour Beach is less than a minutes stroll away! The cottage was spotless and clean and complete with all we needed for our stay. Wonderfully comfy beds and lovely clean decor too made it feel very homely. The cottage was quickly warm and cosy when we needed it to be (we had a couple of days of poor weather). The use of free Netflix was on those days greatly appreciated by our two girls and a nice litre addition by the owner Derrick. Derrick was very helpful with loads of info and updates about our booking and the cottage and St Ives generally. Would highly recommend this cottage, we'll definately be back!
