Great little cottage a stones throw from the harbour front in St Ives. Plenty of character with the wooden floors and rustic furnishings. A bit of legwork needed to load and unload but well worth it. Spot On. Once again Many Thanks.

Lovely little cottage, fantastic location. Nice decor and the views from the upstairs windows were better than we were expecting. Stayed here with our children aged 5 and 3, and it suited us very well.
