    Hill Cottage has been a great family home but would equally be a great second or holiday home being so centrally located to all the amenities that St Ives has to offer.

The town, with winding cobbled streets, is also a 'foodie' destination packed with numerous restaurants, pubs and cafes all offering excellent fare including the award-winning Porthminster Beach Café.
