Perfect location, good all round property

October 2018

Great location to harbour and beaches and of course the infamous Sloop.

August 2018

The Cooperage is a great property for families to explore St Ives, fantastic location and very lovely accommodation we will be back.

October 2017

We loved our holiday and will return to st ives again

August 2017

The Cooperage was a great base for us, plenty of room, warm, clean and nicely decorated, comfy beds too. The spiral stairs were fine for the younger, fitter people in our family. The shower over the bath wouldn't suit anyone over 5ft 3in, due to low ceiling, but there is a walk in shower room too as an alternative.

It's a perfect location being within a few minutes walk of 3 beaches and 2 fabulous beach cafes /restaurants, and near all the little galleries and potteries. We loved walking round the corner to see the beautiful sunset over the sea at night then being able to walk 3 minutes in the other direction in a morning to buy fresh bread and pastries for breakfast from a choice of the local bakeries. The Norway local convienience store was also so handy and really well stocked too with everything we needed. St Ives is a lovely relaxing holiday destination and the Cooperage was a great base for the week we were there.

April 2017

A lovely cottage with a luxurious feel, in the heart of St Ives with the added benefit of parking! A Perfect place to stay.

April 2017

The televisions in each room were fantastic - just couldn't get the kids to come to the beach sometimes! Our children loved the spiral staircase. The living room was just as per the picture on website - no wide angle lens required! The living space was much larger than other Downalong cottages we've rented - and paid similar price for. Two large sofas were great - often someone is perching on a dining chair in these small cottages as not enough comfy seating. Two toilets and two showers is great feature - again much better than other cottages. One of the bedrooms was downstairs - we weren't aware of this from the description but it was fine - just not really suitable for a child, so we had to give up the kingsize bed upstairs to our son. He was happy but we weren't so much. Maybe you could make this clearer on the description. The downstairs living area and bathrooms were tiled floors which are great for cleaning but they were very cold to walk on - you couldn't have barefeet. Maybe in the summer this is great and cooling but in April it made the downstairs quite chilly, despite the heating being on. For this reason I would not rent this cottage in the colder months. Also there was a fireplace opening that was tiled floor and no fire - it would have been perfect for even an electric fire as a focal point for the room and some extra warmth in the evenings. Just warm up the main living room/floor a bit and this cottage is perfect!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your review, we aim to be completely honest and transparent with our property descriptions and the reviews that we publish, so all reviews received, including criticisms, are shown on our site, with very few exceptions. Your concerns related to the bed sizes that were felt to be too small and the location of The Cooperage. There are no beds larger than a double at The Cooperage, as detailed within the online and brochure decsriptions; if you are used to a larger size bed at home, these may understandably seem quite small, so we are very sorry if this was not what you had expected. At Aspects we are very passionate about our beautiful county and always aim to find the best property to suit our guest’s needs so we are genuinely dissapointed to hear that your impression of St Ives was not favorable. As discussed since receiving this review, our sales team are always very happy to help advise on best/most suitable locations, for anyone that is unsure of what they may expect; please do not hesitate to get in touch for advise. Tanya, Customer Services.

Good quality decor , in an excellent location handy for everything.

We would fully recommend The Cooperage as an ideal family cottage that is accessible for all the attractions of St Ives - we shall most certainly be returning!
