Very nice cottage, perfect location to porthmeor, Porthgwidden and the harbour.

Jul 2020

The cobbles was a beautiful cottage now stayed twice over new year, it is in a excellent location with added bonus of two car spaces in front of property, the cottage has everything you need is clean furnished beautifully we will be coming back we have already stayed twice I think that says it all.

Jan 2020

St Ives is a beautiful town and the cobbles is situated in an ideal location, convenient for beaches, shops, restaurants and pubs and the parking directly in front of the property takes the stress out of finding a place to park your vehicle if you go out for the day.

Sep 2019

A lovely stay at The Cobbles. Beautifully decorated, comfortable & well equipped cottage. Great central location with easy access to beaches, shops, restaurants & pubs. Lots of space for seven of us, ranging in age from seven years to grandparents. Nice to have the little snug which my granddaughter and I used as a quiet & cosy reading area. Parking for two cars is a blessing during school holidays when the car parks are all busy. Would recommend the cottage, although be aware that the spiral staircase needs very careful negotiation!

Apr 2019

We a family of 7 loved the Cobbles beautiful spacious property, it was so accessible to everything we needed, with added bonus of 2 spaces parking right outside the property. We will definitely be back to stay.

Jan 2019

We had a excellent stay at the Cobbles over new year, the cottage is beautiful and quirky with added car parking for 2 cars which is a added bonus, we would defiantly come back.

Jan 2019

We had a great week in the Cobbles, which is in a fantastic location for getting to all of St Ives, whether you want galleries (Penwith is next door!), the town or beach. A lovely, comfortable and quirky cottage that we didn’t want to leave!

Aug 2018

We had a lovely holiday but struggled with the spiral staircase. We think more information should be given to potential guests about the tricky spiral staircase. This is a particularly difficult spiral staircase & dangerous for both the children & elderly.

Thank you for your comments. We always try to ensure that our descriptions are as honest and transparent as possible, but we will always look at how we can improve them; so whilst we already pictured the spiral staircase and mentioned it in the description, we can understand that sometimes details like this can be missed, or the difficulty of them, not always obvious. We have now added additional wording to our website description to state please note this property has a spiral staircase that leads down to the basement kitchen which you may feel is not suitable for toddlers or elderly relatives in your party. For anyone that may be concerned about their suitability, please do not hesitate to contact one of our team to check on this first. We hope that everything else was just as you expected, and that you had a fantastic time. Tanya, Customer Services

A real home from home. It is obviously a much loved cottage.
