The property is exactly as shown in the photos, which was fab. The views are to die for. The apartment was beautiful and spotlessly clean. The bed really comfy and the towels soft. Perfect. Got to everywhere we wanted by train which was great and only £1 and 4 mins into st Ives. We had a wonderful week and really didn't want to leave. Lucy is the perfect host and communication with her throughout the booking was second to none. Thanks for a week to remember and we will be back

The cottage was very comfortable and spotlessly clean and right in the middle of St Ives itself with access to all that St Ives offer. I hope to return one day soon...........
