Absolutely loved this unique property . It was extremely well furnished , beautiful bed linens and towels . The welcome pack was well received . Amazing views from the lounge in particular. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend .

Had a lovely two weeks late September 23 weather was mixed but managed to get a tan. The property was clean and light with fantastic views over the bay we had everything we needed on site. Watched the sunrise from our bed every morning with a brew will recommend to friends and family.

Lovely apartment with everything you need second time we've stayed here deffinatley stay again

Lyonesse Seven is a very comfortable, light and airy, stylish apartment with superb views of the town and beach. We really enjoyed a restful stay there and would definitely consider booking again. Be prepared for the steep walks back from town and beach, and also the very tight parking space. It's a great base for exploring the town and the coastline on foot or by train.

Great holiday made more memorable by the apartment. A great base that is just a 5 minute walk away from the beach and town. Aspects Holidays you made the whole process from booking to arrival to the departure. Thank you ????

What an absolute gem! The photos do not do this apartment justice. It's very spacious with beautiful views and very well equipped. We would love to come back again!

Absolutely fantastic holiday apartment. View out of one window to carbis bay, and the other to the harbour. Everything needed was there. Welcome teabags etc was super touch Also full sky tv in lounge and main bedroom! Nice quiet area as well when we went. We thought this was a great stay, and would love to stop here again. Many thanks to the owners.

We have stayed in Lyonesse Seven a few times now and it suits our family very well in terms of number of rooms, number of bathrooms, location, comfort and views.

We would come again!

Spotlessly clean , fantastically furnished and breathtaking views.

Great family apartment, which was clean and spacious and provided us with all our needs whilst enjoying the sites and sounds of St Ives!

Don’t want to tell anyone about this place as it will make it harder for me to book! Seriously lovely home from home, just go for it.

Stayed here several times really love the place, comfortable and very clean. Home from home

Lovely clean apartment with great views. It felt very comfortable and welcoming. Would stay again and also recommend!

Thank you for a lovely week!

It was amazing

Loved this property and I will return. Fabulous base, clean and bigger than I expected. Parking very tight but we managed just a bit of patience needed to ease in. I thought it would be really small inside but it was enough space for my family of 4 and very comfortable. The use of the beach chairs and screens a great help. We were really very pleased and had a lovely stay.

Loved this beautiful apartment. Fantastic views, very spacious and well equiped. We did not mind staying in on the days it rained. The climb up the hill is much needed after all those cream teas! Great location for the beach and town. The only negative is the parking, we have a regular family car but two larger cars parking on either side made it impossible. Thankfully someone was always around to move and let us in or out but you should be aware of this. Overall would recommend.

Lovely apartment- great views from the lounge and bedroom. Plenty of room and very clean and comfortable. We have stayed here several times and we leave the car in the space outside and spend the whole week walking.

Fantastic apartment great location close to all amenities great for families well equipped and decorated to a very high standard

Lovely place To die for views Kitchen well equipped Extra cleaning material left for guests Down hill on the way into town Uphill on the way out??Not for people with mobility problems. A relaxing retreat to stop unwind at as you slowly fall in love with St Ives?? No one ever goes to St Ives Just once, not possible??????

Excellent base for our stay in St Ives. A well equipped flat, with great views across the water. Couldn’t fault it, even after the steep walk back up from the village

We’ve stayed here around five times now it’s like home from home for us.

Lyonesse Seven is in a great location with lovely views of the harbour one side and Porthminster from the front. A fully equipped, roomy and comfortable apartment for our family of 5. Just perfect.

Really great place to stay, well equipped and great views, even when the rain fell it was a pleasure to stay indoors and chill

This was our second time to St Ives and staying at the Lyonesse 7 and yet again we had a wonderful holiday. Beautiful beaches, fantastic views, amazing body boarding, wonderful apartment and delicious food.

Quite simply “Paradise”??

A lovely home from home with great views. Everything you need is provided, couldn't fault it. We enjoyed a very comfortable & relaxed stay.

Comfortable, very clean apartment. Spectacular sea views. A wonderful and relaxing start to 2019

Beautiful apartment with stunning views of both Porthminster Beach and the Harbour. Plenty of room, and the benefit of a car space. Obviously with it being so high up, the hills are steep!!

Absolutely fantastic accomodation, quality furnishings and a great location.

Will really miss those views of St Ives and beyond.

Would love to return one day

Great apartment, lovely location with beautiful views of the sea. Very well decorated with everything you could need. Will definitely be back!!

Fantastic property, fantastic location and amazing views, we loved it! Thank you.

Excellent value for a family holiday with 6 adults and we didn't feel crowded. Well equipped kitchen and all the furnishings and fittings were of a high standard. Great views from the main bedroom and lounge. Good location and not too many steepl hills to climb to get home at the end of the day/ evening!! Will definitely book again.

Good location only a short walk into the town centre.

A very pleasant apartment with stunning views. Possibly slightly cramped for 6 adults with parking rather tight for anything bigger than an average family car. Ideally situated for porthminster beach and the town, and would certainly consider returning on future occasions.

A fabulously laid out, beautifully equipped property. Fabulous views and ideally located for the beach and town.

Lyonesse Seven was very easy to find on our way into St Ives. As was parking and entry into the apartment.

Myself, my wife and 3 kids have been coming to St Ives for many years and we thought we would try somewhere new to stay.

From the moment we stepped into the accommodation we knew it was special. The layout was quirky, the quality of the furnishings and appliances were excellent, the rooms were big and the views were really quite special. A clear view of the harbour one side and looking down to Porthminster beach and St Ives bay from the front. Amazing sunrises in the morning! Wow.

We would definitely love to come back and stay here again! Thank you.

Excellent views from all windows in the lounge,very homely

This was a beautiful apartment with amazing views, incredibly well equipped and also had a very comfortable bed!

The best holiday apartment we have ever stayed in, very well equipted with fantastic views over the bay.

Fantastic place, ideal for town and beaches or just being lazy and looking out the windows. Would highly recommend it to anyone.
