Low Tide is a great place to stay.

Lovely cosy apartment with good facilities and amenities. Had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Great location for both beach and town and gorgeous views across the bay.

Extremely happy with everything at Low tide. Perfect location and within fantastic walking distance of transport connections. I would highly recommend this wonderful property to anyone. The views from the living room are absolutely stunning. You won’t be disappointed if you book

very nice place to holiday, very clean and has everything you need for a relaxing holiday, the parking is a bonus for st ives, dont book if you have any problems with climbing steep roads / steps, as this is the only way to town and beaches. Was perfect for us as we came in October, would not like to stay in summer as would not feel comfortable sleeping with bedroom window open as it is practically on the pavement and very low down.

Low Tide is a well equipped and comfortable holiday let. Ideally situated just outside the town centre. The view from the lounge window across the bay to Godrevy lighthouse is stunning. We can thoroughly recommend it for couples or two plus two children.

An excellent last minute week and we couldn’t have picked a better place. The location of the property is perfect. The apartment has everything you need and more. Parking space is a great addition.

Would not hesitate to stay again.

Our second stay in low tide, we just love the location, the parking space and the homely feel, very comfortable for our small family.

Low Tide is in an excellent position within St. Ives. It has parking onsight which depending on your vehicle is a little tight. It is on the main road but the vehicle noise wasnt too bad. View from front window is beautiful. Only 3/5 minutes walk to beach and town centre. We would stay here again.

Lovely stay at Low Tide, very comfortable, clean accommodation, close to St Ives Centre and with gorgeous views from the front room window. Free parking is a bonus to this property. We will definitely be booking again.

The location of Low Tide was excellent for our needs. Close enough to walk to all parts of St Ives whilst giving easy access for the car, enabling us to drive to other parts of Cornwall. Also easy access to the train station to catch the train to Penzance.

We loved our time at Low Tide and St Ives. If we were ever to return to St Ives we would certainly be looking to book in at Low Tide.

The staff at Aspects were both friendly and helpful during our stay. Communication was also excellent.

Perfect for our small family, the parking is a bonus and the apartment was bright and spacious and well equiped with everything from cleaning products to games, books and everything you could need for the beach! The huge window is the perfect place to read bedtime stories to our daughter whilst looking out at the sea, perfect end to the day.

A very well equipped property with a beautiful view in an excellent location. Can't wait to go back!

We would recommend this cottage to anybody. The accommodation was excellent. Sunny position and wonderful views of the sea. Although quite cold when we were there the property itself was very warm and welcoming.

Great location and perfect size for a family of four.

Lovely, comfortable, well equipped apartment. Great to have parking which is like gold dust in St Ives. Fantastic location, couldn't ask for better.
