We were absolutely blown away with our little cottage "Out of the Blue". Myself, my husband and our 4 year old son Oliver visited St Ives for 6 days and we enjoyed ourselves so much. It was our first time in Cornwall and we totally fell in love with St Ives. The people are so friendly, the location of the cottage was ideal we were a 2 minute walk to all of the shops and restaurants and the beaches were super close too. We felt really sad to leave, Oliver fell in love with it too and we already can't wait to return next Summer. Thank you for a fantastic trip. Aspects Holidays were a fabulous company to deal with, when booking the accommodation they were so helpful and accommodating. The cottage was fully equipped with everything we could need for our little trip. Cornwall has stolen a piece of our hearts and we have made memories to last a lifetime x

Out of the blue is a lovely cottage in the heart of St Ives. On arrival we were very impressed with not only the cleanliness of the cottage, but also the high spec finish inside. The owners have really thought about everything, with no expense spared. There’s even a hot shower outside the back door for when you arrive back from the beach.

The parking looks a tad daunting at first, but it’s actually really specious & a life saver in St Ives.

We would 100% stay here again. As a young family, we found it convenient being so central with ease of access to everything.

The owners have really thought about everything, with no expense spared. There’s even a hot shower outside the back door for when you arrive back from the beach.

This is a great cottage and we were a family of 5 adults and had a great time. Great to have an outside shower for when we have had a swim. Superb location being in the heart of town and in easy reach of beaches, shops and restaurants. Ideal to for any time of year. So well decorated and fitted out by the owners. A lovely homely atmosphere and we would definitely come back to stay next time we visit; hopefully soon.

Outstanding cottage… A rare unanimous verdict from our family that it was the nicest cottage we’ve stayed in over the last ten years of coming to St Ives.

I could write lots so will try to keep it brief…..

Location is excellent. Right in heart of the Downalong so easy access to the beaches and amenities whilst still being peaceful due to the street being pedestrian only.

Parking space provided is an added bonus as parking in the town is limited and in summer is horrendous. The dread of the Island car park is not a fun start to any holiday so the benefit of the provided space cannot be overstated.

The cottage is simply first class. Immaculately presented and equipped with everything you could need. It truly is a fantastic cottage and we’ll certainly be booking again.

Our only feedback and something that in my opinion should be rethought is the heating control. The electric radiators are very effective however they are currently controlled via an app that only the owner can access. We were left cold on several occasions which really doesn’t accord with the overall standard of the accommodation. For winter stays in particular it’s absurd that the customer has no say on on their comfort.

Service from Aspects was excellent. I called two days before we were due to arrive to ask if the cottage might be available a day early. Storm Eunice was due to hit on on original arrival day and I wanted to avoid a long drive in the storm if possible. The phone was answered immediately by Louise and the extra night was booked after first checking with the owners and that it could be prepped in time. Top notch service, thank you.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your stay at Out of The Blue, as are the owners. They are very grateful for your feedback and will now be supplying a tablet with instructions that will allow their guests to change the heating settings to suit. We were sorry to hear that you had felt cold on a couple of occasions, but should you return to this lovely property, you can rest assured that you will be able to fully utilise the heating to make your stay even more comfortable and enjoyable. We hope to see you back again. Tanya, Customer Services

A very cosy cottage in and excellent position close to everything St Ives has to offer.
