This was our first trip away with our little boy after he was born last year during lockdown. Aspect Holidays were amazing, when it was cancelled due to covid-19 you were more than happy to help me when I needed to re-book it.

The property was incredible, we have been visiting St.Ives for years walking past cottages like this, it was so nice to be in one.

The rooms were lovely, clean and well presented. My wife & I loved the master bedroom and the second bedroom with the new shower room was brilliant.

We had everything we needed and more for our first week away as a family.
