It's set in the very best location to enjoy Porthmeor beach and the town of St Ives. One of the most relaxing places we've ever found - to sit enjoying the view from the window of the tide going in an out and the fabulous sunsets is just wonderful.

We had a lovely restful stay with no cooking ! plenty of good restaurants fairly close by. The welcome pack of goodies was a lovely thought and appreciated. The town and especially the Harbour are a fair walk away with some quite steep steps/ slopes to negotiate but remember this is typical in Cornish Resorts ! All in all a lovely clean, modern, large, peaceful apartment in a good location as a base for exploring Cornwall .

It is a lovely homely cottage and was the perfect size for our family. There is one double room and a twin room so perfect for a family of 4 or less. It is located at the top and only a minute away from the John Fowler complex where there is a swimming pool and a club for kids and adults too. The bungalow is amongst the trees and near the nature walk which is also lovely. The available facilities are great, everything you need to cook meals. One small drawer freezer compartment and fridge space for your essentials. The décor is homely and very 'holiday like'. The beach is located about 10-15 mins car journey. We were lucky to find a church near carbis bay that allows you to park there all day for a voluntary donation of only £2! It has very steep hills but the beach is stunning! my son loved the beach, very clean and just gorgeous in every way. We will be returning again next year and can not wait! Thank you Lucy!!!
