Bakehouse Cottage was fantastic! The location could not have been better with both the beaches and the town centre only very short walks away. Despite this the cottage was quiet and Peaceful. There was more space in the property than we had expected and plenty of room for two adults and two small children. The key access was really easy and made for a simple arrival and departure. We would definitely book Bakehouse again.

We had a great holiday at Bakehouse Cottage. Excellent location for beaches and the town. Cottage lovely and clean and everything you need for a wonderful holiday would definitely go back to Bakehouse Cottage.

Brilliant property in an amazing location for the town , beach and long stay parking . We loved St. Ives with great food and amenities. The weather was amazing, beautiful beaches with quaint little cobbled streets. We celebrated a family wedding here and it made it very special . Can't wait for a return trip .

Beautifully furnished, cosy cottage in a quiet location with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Excellent location for all beaches, shops and harbour

Nice comfy cottage .Good location.

This cottage was amazing! Our 2nd time staying here, it’s so perfect for a week away, amazing location and could not find any faults at all, would definitely recommend

charming cottage in perfect location, did not need to use our car at all, amenities right on the doorstep. Very good that we could unload our car outside the property as roads are so tiny. Interior beautifully decorated with many thoughtful touches. Brand new kitchen & bathroom. Furniture and decor extremely delightful. Ideal for two adults and a small dog. Local shop supplied good quality food and wine. Perfect for art lovers and potters. Cannot wait to go back!

Lovely cottage, centrally located, very clean and extremely comfortable.

We loved our stay. Clean, warm and cosy. Will book again.

Such a lovely cottage! Loved our stay here, perfect

Cottage is quaint and small but well located.

Bakehouse Cottage is a compact, cosy and homely cottage with everything that you need and would suit a couple or a family with young children. The cottage is nicely decorated and furnished and is in a good location for Porthmeor and Portgwidden beaches and is very close to the harbour. It is also dog friendly which is fantastic.We would definately stay again.

Lovely small cottage in the perfect location.

Overall really nice place to stay.

Great location within St Ives and reasonably size for a family of up to 4 people.

Great for a long weekend, warm and friendly with good facilities. Well furnished with amenities required for a stay and the location is very appropriate with what we were looking for from a long weekend - food, restraunts and beaches to walk the dog

Bakehouse Cottage has a lovely happy and relaxed feeling. We loved all of the personal touches likes the unique art work, lovely snuggle blankets and beautiful furniture. The kitchen was fully equipped and we were able to cook a delicious duck for our Christmas dinner. Thank you so much for decorating the property in Christmas decorations- what a lovely surprise and made it feel like a home from home. Overall an amazing little cottage for a lovely relaxing stay...simply open the door and roll on down to the sea and The Sloop!

Lovely cottage! Great location. Extremely clean and well furnished. Looking to book again for our future holidays

Great location, cottage very well equipped, would book this one again.

Bakehouse Cottage exceeded our expectations. It was in a great location close to the harbour and town, just a few minutes walk. It was close to the car park and the beaches. The cottage was beautifully decorated with a nautical theme.

Pretty little cottage that has been furnished and decorated with much thought, a home from home. Location very good for beaches and all the amenities of the town, would recommend to my friends, and dog friendly too, a real plus.

Fabulous stay at Bakehouse Cottage - lovely cottage in a great location.
