A morning precesison led by the Mayor to bless the Well of St Eia. Following this, the Mayor will 'Hurls the Silver Ball' into a crowd of children who assemble on the beach below. The one who returns the ball to the Guildhall steps by midday receives a silver coin. In the afternoon the Mayor then throw pennies from the balcony of the Guildhall for children to collect.

A great location right in the heart of town.Has downstairs bathroom and bedroom for those with limited mobility.We are family of 5 and we had ample space (which was needed as Lockdown happened during our stay). Really lovely and quiet cottage.

Cottage is in a superb location, with Fore Street and Porthmeor Beach only moments away. It is well equipped with everything you need for a holiday.

Just back from a great week at Shiralee. It had everything we needed and more.

Great quiet location, but very close to fore street. Everything you could ask for in the property!

Brilliant for families, very well equipped, perfect location

Highly recommend this property, modern, clean and in a great location away from all the hustle and bustle.

Shiralee is a stunning property with so much history behind it it’s located in hicks court. The property was of a nice size for a family of SIX plenty of space and also in a great location. The property had everthing you needed for a two week stay.

Brilliant location if you want to be situated less than a 5 minute walk to the back street where all the shops pubs restaurants are. Also excellent that you can walk out your door and be on Porthmeor Beach with in a couple of steps! also a little walk to the other lovely golden sand beaches.

Comfortable and pleasant cottage: our second year did not disappoint. Location is perfect and cottage amenities are great. Would stay again

Fabulous cottage in an amazing location. We could even hear the crashing waves on Porthmeor from our bedroom! Very comfortable and well equipped. There was plenty of space for the whole family to relax (including the dog) after a bracing winter walk on the beach :)

Beautiful cottage, comfortable clean and had everything you needed plus more! Lovely location with a great historical factor! Definitely will return! Great for a family with disabled/older generation as bathroom and double bedroom (one of three) on ground floor. Great for family holidays.

Great convenient location. Accessible accommodation which is hard to come by, and a well appointed kitchen. A great place to stay!

Very good location, comfortable cottage. Would stay again.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were very sorry to hear of the issues that you reported during your stay. The owner was informed and will be fixing the window so that it closes and locks properly, he will also fix the broken tile and has already arranged a meeting with the builder. The issues with the tv and dishwasher were rectified immediately. I know that we have since discussed everything in more detail since your departure and want to thank you again for bringing these to our attention. Tanya, Customer Services.

A lovely place to stay. The stairs are quite steep so if you have any mobility problems this should be considered, it was fine for us. The WIFI and smart tv made our kids holiday 100 times better than last year.

fab place great location would stay there again

Great family accomodation with downstairs bedroom suitable for elderly guests,steep stairs do lead to further bedrooms though.Lovely cottage in an excellent location, comfortable and in great decorative order.
