You won't find a property in St Ives more conveniently positioned. Absolutely lovely house. Thoroughly recommend a stay

Mr H,

14 virgin Street is extremely well positioned in the heart of St Ives, situated on a charming cobbled lane which was decorated with cornish bunting during our visit. Within minutes you can either be on any of the towns beaches or at the shops and restaurants. A period property, you get a sense of how life in St Ives might have been. Beautiful location in a beautiful town. I hope we visit again.

Mr B,

Lovely property in a prime location. Had everything you could need to make your stay very comfortable. Great to book and very accommodating when we needed to make a change. Thanks for a lovely stay. Would definitely come and stay again!

Miss W,

Great location, comfortable home with everything we needed.

Mr W,
