Sandy feet cottage is a delightful fishermans cottage in the heart of the downalong area of St Ives. It is perfectly situated between Porthmeor and Porthgwidden beaches. Porthmeor beach is a blue flag beach famous for its surf and Porthgwidden beach is a more sheltered and ideal for families with small children. It is also within a strolling distance of the town centre and its many restaurants and cafes and the tate gallery.
Sandy feet itself is a 2 bedroomed property which has been recently renovated to offer comfortable and stylish living.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a washing machine/drier, cooker and hob with a table and 4 chairs.
The living room has tv and dvd player and ipod dock and speakers plus 2 sofas.
Upstairs there is a bathroom with toilet, sink and a bath with shower.
Bedroom 1 has a kingsize bed ,chest of drawers,walk in wardrobe and 2 bedside lights.
Bedroom 2 has twin single beds, bedside cabinet with bedside lights and a chest of drawers.
We are a family of 3 (although it would be fine for 4 people) and it was perfect for a relaxing week at the end of September. The house had everything we needed and was very well presented. The location was perfect, just a few minutes walk from the beaches and the town. We would definitely stay there again!
Over all we had a lovely stay due to the convienient location for my elderly mother. However there were a couple of niggles. No mirror or hanging space in second bedroom, bedside lamp in bedroom not working no spare bulbs we could find, tap in bathroom sink too powerful for size of sink so we all got wet at one point or another! That said if these niggles were corrected we would have no hesitation in returning. We were so lucky with the October weather which was the icing on the cake.
Overall we enjoyed our stay very much and St Ives is so lovely. The cottage is well placed esp for the art galleries and during the Festival and of course the beaches. The cottage itself was comfortable although we preferred the second bedroom as the bed in the master bedroom practically filled the width. The lounge was comfortable and accessories good.
However a few simply improvements would make a huge difference:
There was no toilet paper on arrival.
The owner was unavailable on phone
The cleaners helped us to sort the oven out which was badly explained.
The cottage is no longer in the care of Aspect
Hot water only Luke warm
Not generous with towels and tea towels.
Cleaners said bathroom light would be mended but no one came
No hanging space in second bedroom (plenty of room for a wardrobe)
No bread knife
No washing up brush but cleaners provided
What lovely happy memories we have of our stay at Sandy Feet Cottage. Plenty of space for myself, The husband and two
Teenagers. Everything you need to live very comfortably whilst away. A real home from home. Lots of little touches which make it that little bit more cosy.
The location is perfect, you are far enough away from the harbour but only being a minutes walk away.
We will definitely be coming back to Sandy Feet for another perfect week away
A family of four, we had a wonderful week, the cottage is in a perfect location, so refreshing to be on a holiday and not have to use the car once!!! Everything you could wish for is on the doorstep, and the children can roam free. Inviting and cosy, the cottage has a lovely kitchen/lounge area, perfect for families and get togethers, (welcome pack used straight away, thank you) and nice relaxing bedrooms, just what you need for the end of a day body boarding, lounging on the beach, and a wonderful fish dinner, Bliss !!!!
Really enjoyed my stay at the cottage. It's very well situated for all St Ives has to offer within easy walking distance of shops, bars, restaurants and beautiful beaches. Vikki is a very helpful host responding promptly to all my emails and texts and nothing was too much trouble for her. I was lucky enough to be able to park on the island car park which is minutes from the cottage but it does get very busy. I'm looking forward to visiting again in the future! 😊
within a stone's throw of 3 beautiful beaches ,the tate gallery and a vast variety of cafe's and restaurants.
