Lovely cottage, beautifully furnished, first rate.

What a super place. Right on the harbour. Amazing when the tide came in! Lovely views and conveniently situated for everything in St Ives. Would love to come again.

Lovely flat - perfect location!

5 of 5
My husband and I booked a last minute trip to St Ives for a long weekend. Booking was easy and Mary was very quick to respond on any queries. We chose to book the garage but if you have a large car I would recommend checking whether the garage would be a suitable size. It is a single but I found it a little too tight - it wasn't a problem though because we had also been allocated a parking space right outside the front door - very handy! The flat is a two minute walk from the beach and five minutes from the harbour front - maybe a 10 minute walk on the way back as it is a steep hill! The flat was warm and clean when we arrived and had everything we needed - an ideal bolthole for two. We had an enjoyable stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place, thank you for having us.

Perfect apartment perfect location

5 of 5
Absolutely beautifully presented apartment where everything has been considered to ensure a great stay. Underfloor heating, mood lighting, coffee machine and welcome cream tea all add to the experience . Very comfortable, loved sitting at the window seat just watching the changing tides, waking up every morning to those views took my breath away and we never tired of them. Loved St Ives was very pleased to see so much open in February and a healthy amount of visitors. Wish we had booked another week!
