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

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      Barefoot Beach Cottage is delightful - beautifully decorated, well-equipped and in a great location, just 1 minute on foot from one beach and 3 minutes from another (ooh, and a full 15 minutes from a third!). Also we loved St Ives out of season - we were there in January - lots of great places to eat, things to do and walks to go on without crowds of people. We would definitely go again. Our only reservations are that the cottage felt a bit crowded even with 4 adults and so personally I would not book for 6 people. It is partly because there is no storage space apart from the wardrobes, as every available inch has been used (e.g. the original under-the-stairs cupboard has been converted into a tiny shower room). So the cottage, which looks beautiful and uncluttered and peaceful when you arrive, can quickly become cluttered and less restful because of your suitcases, wash-bags etc - not to mention surfboards and other sports equipment! Also, there is no tumble-dryer and no outside washing line (as far as we could see), so the only drying facility is a small clothes-horse. This is not ideal if you're doing a lot of water activities or even just if the weather is wet - and of course it would be worse if there were 6 of you. Winter guests also need to be aware that the downstairs bedrooms can get quite cold, because the thermostat is in the upstairs living room, which is always warm. So you may find - as we did - that in order to warm the bedrooms for going to bed and getting up times, you need to turn the heat up so much that the living room becomes absurdly hot. But if you're not someone who feels the cold, this will not be a problem for you!

The cottage could not have been in a better position for Access to beaches and town amenities. The location was central but also quiet as it was tucked away in a charming back street. The nearest beach only thirty yards up the road where early mornings or late evenings would see boarders and surfers having a great time .... Gutted that I did not take my board.
