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 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.
