                                                          We had a great holiday at the apartment. It's a real "home from home" and is very well equipped. It is a huge bonus having a parking space in St Ives and it's only a short walk in to the town - although it's all uphill on the way back which could be difficult for anyone with mobility issues! We have been visiting St Ives for many decades and this apartment is definitely to be recommended. It's very clean, comfortable and has everything you need for a lovely holiday.
