Guest Reviews

  • "A short walk to a beautiful sandy beach and food outlets. Also, a short walk into St Ives. The cottage had great views of the sea and you were close enough to hear the waves on the shore. The garden had a seating area on the sea view side which was lovely and an outside dining area next to the barbecue on the other side. The lounge upstairs also faced the sea which offered wonderful views of the beach and sea. The outside hot and cold shower was an excellent addition and a big help when returning from a sandy beach."
  • "Very well located accommodation for all activities, there was nothing missing, gladly visit again"
  • "The property was better than we expected. The garden was larger that it appeared online, which allowed our two year old plenty of room to burn off energy. We loved the location allowing us easy access to the beach, and a quick walk to the center of town. Cornish Escapes was very responsive and helpful. The welcome bag with coffee, tea, etc. was terrific, plus the bag came in handy for grocery shopping. I would certainly recommend this property!"
  • "Beautiful place to stay, missing it already! A 'must book' for your next St Ives holiday. My elderly father, who has walking difficulties as he is disabled, found St Ives itself hard to walk around as it’s very hilly etc. which sadly meant he couldn’t get about very well. However, the house was so beautiful he spent a lot of time in the garden admiring the sea view and was very happy. The small welcome touches are also much welcome after a 7-hour drive."
  • "Absolutely fantastic stay. The place was incredible and had more than you could ever need. The warm outdoor shower was so great after coming back from the beach. The location is fantastic. We can’t wait to go back"
  • “We had a fantastic holiday. The property was clean and fitted out to an excellent standard. Highly recommended”

  • “Gorgeous cottage, walking distance from everywhere in St Ives, but tucked away enough to escape the bustle. The cottage was spotless, beautifully furnished and the wild garden is delightful. Highly recommend. No complaints.”

  • “Overall, a great place. Amazing views. Spacious classy house with lots of extras, barbecue area, external shower for when you come from the beach which is 5 min walk.”

  • “Lovely cottage in a perfect location, easy walking distance from the beach and St Ives town. Very clean house and comfortable beds would definitely recommend and also stay at again. Thank you!”

  • “We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was beautiful, had a gorgeous view, and an excellent location. Everything was very clean & there were lots of little nice touches throughout. It was also very spacious. The location was perfect – only minutes to Portminster beach, and a very short walk into the main part of St. Ives. We’d definitely stay again & strongly recommend to anyone planning a trip to St. Ives.”

  • “We had a wonderful time in Primrose Cottage. The house is spacious and comfortable and very well-equipped. It has beautiful views over Porthminster beach and is in a private location within a short walk of the centre of St. Ives. It was very clean and tastefully furnished with thoughtful details to make one’s stay very comfortable. It is a short walk away from both the train station car park and the stunning Porthminster beach. We loved being so close to the sea and the town.”
