Property well equipped and comfortable but the stairs between the 1st floor lounge and the kitchen on the ground are very steep. Very conveniently situated for access to shops and harbour.

Oct 2019

Perfect location in September, right in the middle of everything. Ebb Tide was wonderfully fitted out with excellent quality kitchen goods. We loved our week here!

Oct 2019

We really enjoyed our stay at Ebb Tide. Its in a perfect location in the centre of St Ives, very short walk to lovely beaches, shops and restaurants. The cottage is charming and comfortable, and had everything we needed.

Jul 2019

A delightful and well furnished cottage, well placed for all beaches and amenities. Our party of 5 adults stayed there comfortably for a week Airy, light and picturesque (watch out for a low beam in the kitchen though!) a great cottage to experience St Ives on.

Jun 2019

Ebb Tide is in a great location for the town. Shame I can't say the about the parking space, which may well have been located in the next county!

Unfortunately the space that came with this property when you had stayed here previously, was made unavailable due to changes by the council, so we were very sorry to have to contact you and inform you of the changed location. Parking is in such high demand in St Ives that many properties do not have this facility at all, but the owners were really keen to still be able to offer something that gave guests a guaranteed space and secured a space that is approx. 5 minutes' walk from Ebb Tide, though we appreciate that the hills can make this feel like a very long 5 minutes at times! We hope that having that guaranteed space proved useful still. Tanya, Customer Services

This cottage is very dated, access from floor to floor not brilliant for older guests, very dated in décor and facilities you get what you pay for.

We are sorry to hear that this property did not meet all of your expectations when comparing it to other properties that you have stayed in. Traditional fishermans Cottages in the heart of St Ives are packed full of character inside and out, but often a little smaller and have layouts/stairs more quirky and steeper than in more modern buildings, so it is definitely an important consideration when booking a property like this. We have since been in contact to discuss your comments further. Thank you very much for letting us know your thoughts, so that we could discuss them with the property owner; and we are glad to hear that you still had a great time here and liked all of the facilities in the kitchen. Tanya, Customer Services.

A lovely pet-friendly property that has been beautifully renovated and is ideally situated for visitors who want to be less than a minute's walk from the shops and beaches. Ebb Tide is comfortable, practical and has plenty of appliances/amenities... our new favourite!

Apr 2019

Enjoyed a chilled November break at Ebb Tide, cottage has a relaxed feel & decorated to a high standard. Location is great, quiet, but just 2 minutes walk to Fore Street and beaches. My 3 year old girl appreciated to cupboard full of beach equipment. The car park pass is a great benefit, no worrying about getting a parking space, we hardly ventured anywhere as St.Ives has so much to offer & we cold just pop back to the cottage so easily.

Nov 2018

Perfect location for exploring St Ives.

Oct 2018

Perfect location and very comfortable accommodation. Highly recommended.

Oct 2018

Ebbtide is a beautiful traditional Cornish cottage. The location on the Digey is just perfect, we were in the heart of St Ives just far enough away from the madness of forestreet. Our three children adored the cottage as much as us, we will definitely be back. Thanks Aspects for the most amazing holiday. We also celebrated our first anniversary there too so even more special. ?? St Ives so much x

Aug 2018

Just back from an excellent break at ebb tide, great property, perfectly furnished with all creature comforts, exceptionally comfy beds. Would recommend to any family, although not ideal for older people or very young children as stairs were very very narrow and slippy. Will definitely be back
