We enjoyed a lovely family holiday in Between Beaches. The cottage was warm and cosy, and in an excellent location.

Lovely house, clean roomy, . Ideally placed for easy access to town and beaches.

Between beaches big a perfect location in st Ives. No big hill. 3 minutes from 2 great beaches and town. Comfy beds. Nice family space over 3 floors. Steep ish stairs stairs but managed fine for my 65 year old parents, 3 year old and 6 month old. No access steps. Very clean. Good showers and lovely bath. Has everything you need.

Brilliant week in spite of Covid 19. ??????????

Between beaches is in a great location for the beaches and town. It was nicely furnished and the kitchen dining room is great for a large family to socialise.

Lovely cottage, ideal for our extended family to stay. Location perfect, near to the town, harbour and all beaches. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

We had a great stay at Between Beaches, the house is just as described, in a perfect location and is very well equipped. There were six of us and a baby and we were very comfortable. The kitchen is big enough if you want to prepare food and eat in. We found the house to very clean and nicely decorated. In honesty I would find it difficult to be critical. There was a selection of games and DVD's and everything that you would need for a day on the beach including belly boards, buckets and spades even crabbing nets. Would highly recommend a stay there!

We have been coming to St Ives for New Year for the last 17 years, but this was our first time to include Christmas week. Between Beaches is a really spacious holiday cottage - we stayed with a party of 5 across 3 generations plus 2 dogs and all had plenty of room. It is well laid out across the 3 floors and spent most of our time (when not out in the lovely town) in the kitchen/dining room which is a great family area. The location in one of downalongs quieter streets is a favourite and gives easy access to the island and beaches. We enjoyed Between Beaches so much, we have rebooked for next year ??.

A fantastic cottage in the best location in St Ives. Beautiful features and lots of space for everyone. Thank you for a great week.

The cottage was lovely and spacious . As we were travelling with my elderly parents, it was lovely to find accommodation with an ensuite as well as a main bathroom. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment particularly the washer dryer. This came in very handy on a couple of wet days!! .A lovely find between beaches.

Great location and a comfortable stay

This is our 7th property with Aspects and we were very happy with Between Beaches so much so we have booked it again next year for our another family holiday!

A pretty cottage in a great location for a family holiday in st Ives .

A wonderfully comfortable and welcoming home that is in the perfect location for everything St Ives has to offer. Incredibly well equipped and spacious.
