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

The beds are comfortable, everything was clean and the lounge is very comfortable too. The views are incredible. I loved watching the surfers every morning. Definitely will stay again. Loved every minute xx
