Rose end cottage is just perfect. Glorious location seconds from everywhere, so convenient, yet so quiet (other than the sea gulls!) The best equipped kitchen we’ve stayed in and everywhere immaculately clean.

Jul 2020

A beautifully decorated, very comfortable and clean cottage right in the heart of St. Ives.

Sep 2019

Fantastic location near to Fore Street and yet is so quiet considering how close it is to the hustle and bustle. Also only a very short walk to the wonderful Porthmeor beach and the artist's quarter. To truly feel part of St Ives you couldn't choose a cottage better located. Perfect.

Sep 2019

Rose End Cottage was an absolute delight to stay in during our holiday in St Ives, by far the best cottage we have stayed in. It is decorated to a very high standard and well equipped. The parking space was very close by, more so than others we have stayed in, making the unloading process pain free. The cobbled street is very quiet for St Ives, having stayed along the Digey it is far quieter yet only one street along, and steps from the shops. The cottage was immaculate and the bed extremely comfortable! We loved staying here and will definitely return.

Jul 2019

Our family had a lovely time staying at Rose End Cottage.

The cottage was clean and well equipped.

We would love to stay here again.

Jun 2019

Lovely, cosy cottage in a fabulous location for the town and beaches. Great to have parking so close by.

Jun 2019

We love St Ives and have been for 3 years in a row, always booked with Aspects as the service and accommodation quality are second to none.

Jun 2019

A beautifully decorated, comfortable cottage in a perfect location - can't recommend it enough.

May 2019

This cottage ticks all the boxes, we stayed 2 years ago and you always worry when you revisit somewhere it won’t live up to your expectations a second time, but it exceeded them. We are looking forward to coming back next year

Apr 2019

A lovely warm cottage in a very good location. Proximity to the shops, harbour front and main beaches is excellent.

Jan 2019

We have booked holidays to St Ives through Aspects a number of times now, and yet again we were very happy. Really good interaction with staff when needed, and the cottage was great. Looking forward to staying there again next October.

Nov 2018

We have been to St.Ives every year for 12 years and Rose Cottage has to be one of the most perfectly situated cottage to the main life of the harbour, beaches and restaurants. We are a family of 4, with a child of 4 and 8 and the property had everything to suit all the family. I would highly recommend this property.

Oct 2018

Lovely cottage in fantastic location with added bonus of a parking space. Plenty of space for the two of us.

Oct 2018

Perfect location, peaceful and quiet yet so close to everything. Very nicely decorated throughout with a beautiful kitchen.

Aug 2018

This was the second year visiting Rose End Cottage and the standards were just as good as the first year. it lived up to all expectations and more. We love everything about Rose End Cottage, the character of the property, the decoration, the facilities and most importantly the location. Look forward to next year!

Jun 2018

Location is excellent. Comfy bed. Cottage has a great layout. Its very quiet and felt like being at home. Love the decor.

Apr 2018

This was the first holiday booked through Aspect Holidays and we were very impressed with the service, advice, friendliness and accuracy of the description of the property. The property was exactly as described. As we walked through the door it was everything we hoped for and more. It was extremely clean, tastefully decorated whilst retaining its charm and character of a time gone by. The location was superb, down the charming cobbled street of Bunkers Hill. It was peaceful, whilst still being at the heart of St Ives. It was in easy reach (2 mins) of the Harbour, Porthmeor Beach, shops and restaurants. We couldn't have asked for more! We enjoyed our stay so much that we are smitten with both St Ives and Rose End Cottage, we can't wait to return! Thank you!

May 2017

Fab location. Lovely decor. V comfy beds so had great night sleep. Would recommend cottage. Best one we have stayed in so far. Well equipped too.

May 2017

Fantastic location and superb internal furnishings / decoration

May 2017

Superb cottage will definitely look to boom again.

Apr 2017

Extremely helpful and friendly members of staff. We felt no pressure what so ever to book through you which was a refreshing change. We were give. Lots of options, any questions were answered either immediately or we got a call back. Both offices were very welcoming even telling us about a group of dolphins that had just appeared y the harbour so we could run out to see them. We will definitely book through Aspect again. Rose Cottage was delightful, warm and cosy and perfect to have the parking. Just one thing on the directions it mentioned The Tate Tearooms I think it's in fact Bumbles Cafe, worth checking as we rather stumbled upon the garage. Many thanks.

Jan 2017

Many thanks to one and all

Sep 2016

The cottage was beautiful and perfect for us. It is in a fantastic location within easy walking distance of everything St. Ives has to offer. The parking space was an added bonus too. We would highly recommend a holiday at Rose End Cottage and hope to be back soon.

Jul 2016

The cottage superseded our expectations. The property is beautifully decorated and cosy, the cottage has a warm and inviting feel. The kitchen is nothing short of beautiful and the layout of the property is quirky and well thought out. The location could not be any better; minutes from the beach and bustling high street. The beds are very comfortable - especially the double! The two bedrooms are suitable for adults (maybe one smaller adult for the smaller of the single beds). The extra touches made us feel right at home - lots of towels, milk in the fridge, biscuits, and board games and DVDs.

Perfect holiday - lovely people and lovely food! So glad we booked this cottage, it really is as beautiful as the pictures.

May 2016

Lovely cottage in excellent location and hope to go back again soon

Mar 2016

Fabulous position in the downalong but quiet and tucked away. Couldn't be better really!

Nov 2015

Lovely spacious well equipped cottage in a fabulous location... The best in St Ives we've stayed in so far and we've stayed in many. Would definitely recommend a stay at Rose End Cottage.

Nov 2015

Rose End Cottage is a lovely 4-storey house with a room at each floor, making it fun to live in on hoildays. Kitchen is perfect for cooking and eating as well as working... should you be in touch with the office. The lounge is small, yet lovely and features a PS3 taht the children will unmistakenly love. The bedrooms above have each their character. A beautiful property.

Oct 2015

We have previously stayed in similar properties within St Ives, usually booked through Cottage-boutique. Rose End Cottage has been by far the best, stylish and most comfortable. Our holiday has been made all the more special and we are likely to book Rose End Cottage for next year.

Aug 2015

Excellent Location for all amenties.
