Fantastic cottage, fantastic location, would highly recommend we will definitely be back!

We have just had an enjoyable week staying in this lovely cottage. We had a great week. Lovely views of Porthminster bay, especially from main bedroom: this was a pleasure to wake up to each morning!

Absolutely amazing views from the front relaxing to sit and watch the ever changing sea. The accommodation excellent perfect for a family. Lovely big tiled entrance to an amazing kitchen easy to take off sandy shoes and coats before venturing to the living room. Parking space great. Short stroll to Porthminster beach. We had a very relaxing week definitely recharged our batteries.

A well situated Cottage with excellent views over St Ives beaches and bay. It was well equipped, clean, warm and cosy. Lots to do within a very short distance. We will definitely book again.

The house was amazing and exactly the same as in the pictures online. The views were truly breathtaking. Sea views from all three floors. The house was furnished beautifully. The owners had supplied towels, tea towels, dishwasher tablets, washing tablets, wipes, kitchen roll and some toilet roll. I would recommend this property without a doubt. There was a second toilet which we didn’t know about which was good as there were 5 of us staying. There was a washIng machine and dishwasher too. Eating out was difficult due to restrictions. You did have to book in places beforehand.

Love St Ives, cottage cosy with the most beautiful views across St Ives and close to the beach and shops. Hope to come back again.

Fantastic views from the property. Plenty of room for a family. Great Location for porthminster beach. Easy walk into St ives. Plenty of things to do when out and about. Would highly recommend this property.

A wonderful cottage in a fantastic location. Fantastic views and only a few minutes walk from the beach.

A lovely, bright, comfortable cottage with stunning views down to the harbour.

Very good value for out of season stay for our family of 6.

Great view

Ideal location, only a 10 minute walk into town, stunning views over St Ives bay, parking right outside the property, couldn't have asked for more!

After more than 20 years of visiting St Ives, this was the best view we've ever had. The house is very comfortable, homely and spacious, with a well equipped kitchen and a dining room with a view too. Would certainly return to this property in the future.

We had a very relaxing holiday,the cottage is in an excelent location with fantastic views over the whole of Porthminster. Our friends were totally blown away with St Ives and the cottage, Fantastic holiday,Look forward to next year.

Great little cottage wouldn't hesitate to return

Excellent views of the surrounding area, ideal layout & flooring to ensure sand & beach mess are minimised to one area close to the entrance rather than carrying through the whole house - important with small children!

What a wonderful time we've had. Very relaxing. Fabulous views from 3 rooms made the stay spectacular!
