Love this cute cottage, perfect location and comfortable and clean, had everything we needed for a happy holiday.

Past Customer,

Lovely cottage, well equipped, prettily decorated, dog friendly, ideally located and clean and tidy when we arrived.

Past Customer,

Sweet house right in the middle of St Ives and all the beaches, shops and cafes . Bring ear plugs - the seagulls are noisy! Great for a short break. No freezer though which might be an issue for some .

Mrs J,

The location is excellent and 5 minutes walk to all beaches, the town and the Island. Clean and well equipped. Would highly recommend it. Got a weeks permit for the Rugby club car park and was easy to pull up outside the cottage to unload and load. Great corner shop less than a minute away as well.

Past Customer,

Charming cottage. It's got everything you need, for a relaxing holiday. Perfect location, minutes away from the harbour, and then a short walk to the lovely beaches, at Porthgwidden, Porthmeor and the harbour. Would certainly book this cottage again, its comfortable and clean.

Past Customer,

Fantastic location, has everything you could need from a holiday cottage in St Ives with the added bonus of accommodating our pet.
