A lovely old cornish cottage, low ceilings, very comfy, clean bedding and towels....steps up to front door. Perfect location and bonus with the garage.

Mrs C,

Good location good size and clean. easy to work with cottages. good communication and info.

Mr Barnaby A,

The location of the property is perfect as it was literally right at the slipway to the harbour. There are a few steep steps so may not be suitable for everyone but the property itself was lovely. Two large bedrooms and a nice living area. The parking is about 30 minutes walk up the hill which is fine and the garage was adequate for our Ford Fiesta. I couldn't fault the property and would book again should we visit St Ives.

Mr C,
