Guestbook comments from the manager

"I am pleased to say we had a wonderful week and enjoyed your property immensely. We had previously stayed in the centre of St Ives and were initially a little concerned at staying slightly outside. We needn't of worried as we found it very convenient for everything plus the bonus of outside space. Very clean and so well equipped, we wanted for nothing. I would recommend this house wholeheartedly."
