Have just returned from staying at Number 5 for 5 nights making a friends wedding a short break. The house is a lovely home away from home and the view from the open living room/conservatory and main bedroom has to be seen to be believed, absolutely gorgeous! The house is clean and tidy with absolutely everything you would need especially a good sized parking space directly at the front of the house which if you know anything about St Ives is an absolute must! The town itself with harbour, bars and restaurants is literally a short 5-10 minute walk away and honestly we and are 2 boys and young baby loved our time there. I would highly recommend this property and the owners are extremely helpful and communicated brilliantly throughout our time of booking some months back and with any queries we had prior to coming down from near London. Just book it - you will be over the moon you did and we will certainly be returning to this great property.
We have in the past, been so disappointed with other cottages, in Cornwall with other letting companies and individuals, but this was just blissfully wonderful, exactly how a cottage rental should be.
From the moment we arrived it felt like home, Phil is a fantastic owner and laid on a cream tea and wine, after taking time to explain everything quite late in the day, we just stood and looked at each other and could belive How wonderful it was.
Then to find one of the most comfortable beds, this was heaven.
This is a perfect location for solitude and quiet, parking a bit hit n miss, and certainly not for unfit people.
The cottage was fantastically equipped with absolutely everything you need, kitchen was wonderful and we cooked a few times again with a well equipped.
The outside provided a peaceful place for a nice glass of chilled wine.
It's easy to reach the shops and harbour, albeit a steep hill there n back, but the benefits easily out way this.
Porthleven has some very fine eating. And drinking places after a hard day on the beach, notably Sea Breeze at the bottom of the hill, just fantastic but book.
I could rave on about the cottage the owner and porthleven as not had a blissful holiday like this in years, and definitely will be going back.
Thanks again Phil.
