Guest Reviews

  • "Great location - quietly tucked away but right in the heart of town. Really appreciated the goody bag and extensive guides to the house and local area. Bedrooms were well appointed... there is plenty of room. All in all, ideal for our needs in St Ives"
  • "Absolutely stunning cottage with lots of home comforts and thoughtful touches. Loved the little bag of goodies on arrival, and our daughter loved going up to the reading nook in the loft and looking through the children’s books. The cottage is located on a beautiful cobblestone street, only a stone’s throw away from an incredible bakery (which we used for breakfast pastries every day!) it was lovely to have extra touches (like brand new coffee pods) waiting for us on arrival. We had the most relaxing week here and will definitely be rebooking in the future."
