Fell in love with this pretty seaside town at first sight and staying at Betty's makes it extra special. As soon as I arrived I felt at home. The cottage is just beautiful and close to the town, harbour and beaches. The parking space is a real bonus. Planning a return trip already.

The welcome pack was wonderful and very generous. It is a good location to see Cornwall. Parking at St Ives is Limited. We can reccomend using the Train from 'The Saltings Lelant'. Very good parking at this station. Easy to get to from the apartment. We would love to come back again. Peter, Janet and friends.
