We had a fabulous time here at new year. It is a stones throw to the centre of St Ives and all its amenities. The cottage has everything you need. Bonus is that it comes with parking in a nearby garage for a car. We would definitely recommend it and hope to return. Thank you both

Despite cold weather it was always warm, even the sun room, that is a lovely light area to eat in. It is well equipped so that living is easy...
