A wonderful cottage in an excellent location. It really is the best equipped place we've ever stayed!

Aspects' service is second to none.

Great little cottage within walking distance to everything St Ives had to offer. The added bonus of parking for two vehicles even though we did not venture out if St Ives. The cottage was well equipped with everything and we even stayed in a couple of nights to enjoy this lovely cottage. What better way to celebrate my 50th birthday in a lovely cottage in St Ives. Great service from Aspect’s once again.

Great location with the added bonus of a parking space.

Carncrows is an ideal base for those who want to explore St Ives and the surrounding areas. The cottage is located very centrally and access to the coastal paths within feet of its back door.

Perfect location with easy access to beach and shops. The parking for 2 average sized cars is a brilliant bonus. Comfortable and well- equipped with a nice patio area. We’ll be back!

Lovely property great location clean tidy great onsite parking.

Wonderful house for both winter and summer , fabulous location.

All in all just the right cottage for the two of us in Downalong, St Ives.

The cottage is so well positioned , convenient and beautifully presented. To have parking on the doorstep is a major bonus.

Fantastic cottage to stay in. So convenient for everything pus the added advantage of a parking space. My friend & I have stayed here at the same time for probably the last 8 years and love it! We have already booked for next year! Aspects are great to deal with and make everything so simple. Thank you for another great holiday!

A really lovely cottage in the heart of St Ives. Upstairs the rear of the house has sea views and a path leads to Porthgwidden beach. The kitchen is really spacious giving you two reception rooms. The lounge has a lovely big sofa to get really comfy. The decor is both modern and in keeping.

Having an outside seating area with parking makes this house really special.

We had a lovely time and have already booked another Aspects property a few doors down. We would have booked number 11 again but needed an extra bedroom.

Lovely cottage with a great location to the town and beaches - Parking at the rear of the cottage is a real bonus - We would definitely book again - Excellent

The location is ideal and having two parking spaces is almost unique for this part of town.

A fantastic decorated and equipped cottage in a quiet area but also close to all you need.

The easy and close access to a family friendly beach was a surprise and really great.

Can't fault Aspects as a company. Their customer service is second to none ,I would highly recommend them to anyone.

St Ives is one of our favourite destinations for a holiday, far to travel, but worth it, especially in festival time. There is almost too much choice for eating out, most are very good, but we weren't too impressed with The Mermaid, although I probably shouldn't have ordered steak in a seafood restaurant! Very expensive for what you get. One of our best experiences was in the Beer and Bird, unexpectedly, for a very good chicken, or veggie, burger "extravaganza"!, very good staff and one of the best selection of beers and spirits available. Although we could spend every day in or close to St Ives, we wanted a wider experience of Cornwall, one place we went to was Tintagel Castle, and we are glad we made the journey, history and amazing sights and coastline. The walk to Zenor was on our list, but due to the bus time table, found that we would have had to bus to Zenor and walk back, not the way round we wanted to do it, as we wanted to have lunch in The Tinners Arms! The part coastal walk we did do was spectacular, although you have to be careful of cliff edges and the vertigo effect! An hour or so watching the surfers on Porthmeor Beach is well worth it, especially whilst sipping a G&T in the beach side cafe of the same name. The diversity of entertainment during a festival week is eclectic, from poetry and art during the day to rock music in the pubs at night! One slight disappointment was our visit to Cornwall Gold, a supposedly working tin mine/mill. There was nothing working and most things looked as if they wouldn't work, although the history is very interesting, shouldn't complain too much, it's free to wonder round the mill. The rugged coastline will entice us back, again, to Cornwall.

Fantastic location a short walk from the beach, restaurants and shops. Table and chairs outside where you can relax and enjoy a view of the sea. Spacious for a cottage in Downalong, with a good sized kitchen and eating area, a living room, a family bathroom upstairs and separate shower room on the ground floor, plenty of hot water, and very comfortable beds. The main bedroom also has the added bonus of a view of the sea. Sympathetically decorated retaining many original features. Loved the tiles in the hall. Lots of thoughtful touches, including a good supply of books and games. All in all a wonderful place to stay!

Great location! Perfect for the Downalong area and the smaller St Ives' beaches. Super little cottage for four. Seagulls are a vicious marauding noisy menace!

I don’t want to tell people how lovely it is so we don’t have to share it. Amazing location, added bonus of a garden and parking, a home away from home with all the amenities you need we’ll be returning ssshhhh.

Our family of 4 had an amazing Easter week which was made extra special staying in 11 Cancrow. Smack bang in the middle of St Ives it was close to the beaches, bars, cafes and shops. The property had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The small outdoor area was ideal to clean and dry 3 wetsuits. Having a parking space at the rear of property made our time there so much more relaxing as we could go out, and return knowing we wouldn’t have to drive round for an hour looking for a space. I would love to have stayed longer and hope to return in the future.

What a great cottage fantastic location for beach and pubs. Great place for a family holiday and the added extra of two parking places what more could you want in the centre of St Ives

We loved our stay at the cottage. It is in a perfect location, close to the beaches,harbour and shops but very quiet apart from the sound of waves lapping on the rocks. The cottage itself is a home from home, very cosy but well equiped. Having space for 2 cars is a very rare find in the town. Would love to stay again!

This cottage is in a brilliant position for enjoying all the beaches of St Ives, and so convenient for the Tate and all the wonderful restaurants! It also has the convenience of parking.

Perfect cottage - perfect holiday

It is probably the best cottage to stay in St Ives if you require parking and love a sea view from your bedroom window when you open your eyes in the morning. Very well equipped and only minutes from beaches & shops. We would't stay anywhere else in St Ives - and dont! This year is our 6th or 7th stay at 11 Carncrows.

Excellent position in St Ives.

Home from home a wonderful place to say

Fantastic location

All we could say is that we were still there.

We found the cottage was in a very convenient position for access to all the beaches, and the centre of St Ives. Quite a home from home.

Home from home - Absolutely lovely place to stay

Lovely quiet location but seconds from the hustle and bustle of town, close to all beaches and shops, gorgeous well equipped,clean cottage

Beautiful property In a very good location, this cottage has a lovely feel about it, it's light, airy and very spacious. It is well decorated and furnished with everything you need from comfy beds to parking spaces for 2 small vehicles. Perfect. would definitely book this cottage again.
