Lovely quaint cottage in fantastic location. Comfy bed. However, needs cleaning properly and repaired in places. Decor very tired downstairs. Mismatched crockery was not very attractive to use. Bathroom ok but very tiny! If these issues were resolved in the main - we would definitely return to this property.

Thank you for taking the time to send in your review. We are really sorry to read that this property had not met your expectations and in particular, that the cleanliness was not to the high standards that you would expect of the properties that we market. We are sorry that we had not been aware of this at the time so that we could get the housekeeper to return and rectify any areas of concern. We completely appreciate that you would expect the property to be 100% for your arrival and would not want your time there being disturbed, but we would have loved to have helped to ensure that you were as comfortable and happy with your chosen property as possible. We are pleased to report that the team have spoken with the property owners and it sounds like they have a few plans for the property over the winter to make some improvements. Thank you so much for bringing these points to our attention so that we can look into them and follow up accordingly and we do hope that you still had a great time here in St Ives.

Lovely cottage and location. Be careful with stairs especially with children. We find best to park in Island car park and take your luggage to cottage with you it's not far and better than barnoon car park. We don't use car once here as st Ives as it all. Take an outing on the train to Penzance. Eat in Lifeboat Inn. Hubbox. Porthmeor cafe and the scoff troff cafe if you have a well behaved pooch they are all very welcoming.

Lovely little characterful cottage right in the centre of St Ives. Perfect location. The only issue we had was with the cleanliness. Change the cleaners! I had to clean the property myself when we got there. All crockery/cutlery were dirty. There was blood on the throw in the main bedroom. Cobwebs everywhere. Sand on dining table, floor and under the throw on the sofa cushions. There was a blue bucket and a dustpan and brush just left in the kitchen in the middle of the floor. This lets the property down.

We are very sorry if the standard of cleanliness was not to the high level that you would have expected from the properties that we market, we can only apologise if any areas had been missed. We would never expect guests to arrive to such things and clean any area of a property; we want all guests to have a wonderful time, and certainly not to spend time upon arrival to clean. Had we known about the issues you experienced whilst you were here, we would have investigated this and done all that we could to put anything right for you immediately. Having now received this feedback, we have spoken to the housekeeper and will closely monitor further feedback, so thank you for letting us know. We do hope that despite this, you still enjoyed this property and your time in St Ives. Tanya, Customer Services

great relaxing break in St Ives. We visit the area at least once a year off season to really enjoy the rugged coastline and spectacular views. Plenty of food and drink outlets to cater for all appetites and budgets. Cottages along the Digey and Downalong are in the best locations.

Once again, brilliant service from the team at aspects. Finding a property, the booking process and collecting keys couldn’t be easier, they really have taken all the hassle away.

The personal touches and helpful staff make the stay so much better and start your break off in a really positive way.

Lovely cottage in a great location, convenient for everything in the town. Although the cottage is small it easily accommodated the two of us and our two medium sized dogs.

A charming, cosy, traditional cottage which was perfect for our short break. Great location only yards from Porthmeor for dog walks and Fore Street for everything else. Thank you.
