September 2018

Great location and cottage lovely, warm, comfortable and nicely decorated. Wooden floors ideal for keeping sand at bay after a long walk on the beach with soggy sandy dogs! Cottage very clean and all amenities to a good standard. Second time of staying and love to stay again.

March 2018

October 2017

very very nice and cosy house with erverything we could think of. even tea, milk, soap, toilet paper! and the whole beach equipment! we felt at home immediately! only the bathroom was smaller than expected with no real shower but the whole room as a shower - but we got along well. and the upper bedroom gets very noisy sometimes. very nice decorations.

a wonderfull house where we would love to stay again.

June 2017

Would be fine for a young family......not 4 adults who are looking for a little comfort!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments, and very sorry to hear that you perhaps found this property to be a little smaller than expected for your party. As with many of the traditional cottages within St Ives; they are packed full of character inside and out, but often a little smaller and layouts/stairs more quirky and steeper than in more modern buildings, so it is definitely an important consideration when booking a property like this. We always try to be as open and honest as possible, and try to give an accurate representation of properties within our photos, so hope that we have achieved that in this case, but we will continue to monitor feedback. We hope that you still enjoyed everything that St Ives had to offer. Thank you for taking the time to send in your comments. Tanya, Customer Services.
