Lovely little cottage close to beach and all amenities.

Lovely property.

Nicely furnished and well looked after.

Really quiet property as well which is unique being situated in the heart of St Ives.

Perfect size for a family of 3 but can imagine would be ideal for couples and a family of 4 also.

Decor is lovely, nice little touches in all rooms, location is excellent. Only downside for us as a family of 4 is the small bathroom which is also downstairs. Also unloading/ loading the car proved to be a bit tricky as you just hope you don’t get blocked in ( as we did) or are able to reverse up the Digey without having anyone right behind you ( which we did)

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your review, we were really pleased to see that you liked the décor of the property and the little touches to the rooms. We were sorry to see that you found the shower room to be a little small for your family of four; we do try our best to capture the size of the shower room in the photos but we appreciate that it is difficult to fully gauge the size from pictures alone. Unloading and loading the car can be tricky, due to the narrow roads in this fantastic location, right in the heart of the town in one of the most popular locations within St Ives. We hope that you agreed that its location well and truly makes up for the difficulty with unloading and loading, and that you had a fantastic time here. We do hope to welcome you back to St Ives again soon. Ben, Customer Services.

We were satisfied with every aspect of the holiday cottage, and would recomend it to our friends and family without hesitation.

Lobster Pot is right in the centre of St Ives so you don't have far to walk to get to the beaches or the shops or the cafes. It's only two minutes to the Tate.

The cottage was very clean and well furnished.

Quiet cosy cottage, close to shops cafes and bars, superb chill out place.

The lobster pot is located perfectly next to the main shops and the beach. It is extremely comfortable, decorated beautifully and provides you with all the equipment you need for the week. Thank you for a lovely stay, will hopefully return very soon! Harry and Emily
