Holding House Cottage
Rural St Ives

£367 - £680 per week

Up a country lane, you come to a small characterful hamlet where this wonderful converted stable is set within a small courtyard of similar properties. The cottage is surrounded by beautiful countryside and yet easily accessible to the bustling harbour of St Ives, where you can walk to, if feeling energetic! Holding House Cottage is immaculately presented and offers spacious, modern accommodation with private parking right outside.

Bench seating next to the cottage offers a great spot for your morning coffee before days out on the beach or exploring this magical part of Cornwall. There are plentiful walks right on the doorstep and being set at the base of Trencrom Hill it is a short walk away from some of the most dramatic views in Cornwall stretching across from St Michaels Mount in the south to miles of golden sands at Gwithian in the North. A perfect base to unwind there is even a local artisan chocolate maker in the courtyard offering delicious gifts to take home after your holiday.

This is a very comfortable, warm and well equipped holiday home. It is in a great location, with lovely walks from the door, and only a short drive to either coast or St Ives. We had a really good week.

A very comfortable cottage with everything we needed for a restful beautiful week .

very beautiful cottage had everything you needed inside

The cottage was very cosy and well equipped. The location was beautiful and great for visiting St Ives. Everything was thought about in the cottage guide, some very useful information about nearby attractions etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Lovely comfy cottage in a peaceful location away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist spots, yet within easy reach of them, spotlessly clean on arrival and very well equipped throughout . We would definitely like to return to Holding House Cottage and would recommend it to friends and family.

Holding house is an excellent location for visiting other places it's very comfortable and cosy will definitely be going back Thanks Aspects

Lovely cottage in a great location. The weather was on our side and our Dogs enjoyed the daily walks around some of the fantastic beaches. Quiet location but close enough that the towns of St Ives or Mousehole were only a short drive away.

Great property, well looked after and set up.. everything we needed.. The company were helpful, efficient and well organised! Thank you

We had a lovely cosy week at Holding House. The weather was awful but the cottage was warm and homely and a lovely place to relax. It was close to St Ives and Lelant, plus the beaches at Hayle and Godrevy Lighthouse. We would highly recommend it.

In a perfect position for visiting all the lovely bays and other great places in Cornwall. Great view from the top of Trencrom hill. Lots of great walking.

We come to Cornwall each year and always use Aspects. They are so well organised. Bright , friendly and efficient. Highly recommended. Thank you.

Wow what a hidden gem with such lovely views and walks. The cottage is a home from home and has everything you need and more. We will definitely be coming back to this lovely place!

Cottage was extremely comfortable, excellent fixtures and fittings, great position, close enough to st Ives but far enough away to feel like your in the country,would definitely Go back, hope to rebook for next year

The cottage had everything needed for a comfortable, relaxing stay. So much storage, a comfortable bed and the best shower! Everything had been thought of. The milk, coffee, teabags and sugar on arrival was a lovely touch. It is in a beautiful area where the only things you can hear are the cows mooing and the occasional tractor. There are some lovely walks without even getting in the car. We will definitely be returning to this lovely cottage. It is delightful!

Holding house Cottage is a delight. Warm, cosy and quiet. A short drive to Hayle and St Ives. We would certainly recommend as the perfect get away. We loved it so much we have re-booked and look forward to returning for our third visit.

As usual a lovely holiday. Aspects are always so friendly, well organised and professional. I can always rely on them to arrange every detail. Thank you once again.

Absolutely loved our property it was exactly as described, quiet location out of town just right

Wonderful week stay at Holding House cottage. Has everything you could need and more. Perfect location if you like peace and quiet. Ideal for us with 2 small dogs. Lovely walk up Trencrom Hill with beautiful views of the area.

Wonderful place to relax surrounded by fields and only 3 miles from st Ives. And close to penzance lands end etc...

Holding House cottage is a lovely home from home, relaxing holiday with everything that you need. Very clean and tidy the housekeepers do an excellent job. Having a small dog it was really useful having Trencrom Hill on our doorstep which we climbed every day and admired the views across Hayle and St Michaels Mount.

Great service , makes the holiday even better. Thank you all for your effort.

It definitely ranks as one of the best self catering cottages that I have stayed in, and in such a lovely part of Cornwall.

Rural cottage location that is clean and fully equipped and dog friendly.

If you like walking which we did we walked to Lelant Beach which is about 3 miles. Perfect beach to wall your dog along. We then followed the coastal path via Carbis Bay and onward to St Ives about another 3 miles.

Lovely cottage in a good location for visiting both North and South Cornwall.

Wonderful Cottage and lovely place to stay.

The cottage is very close to Trencrom Hill which is a lovely place to walk and from which you can see both north and south coasts - St Michael’s Mount on one side and towards St Ives on the other. The cottage has everything you need for a relaxing comfortable holiday.

Great cottage did not disappoint.

Aspect Holidays are very professional and attentive

Great property, clean and tidy with all the accessories you need. It is a decent walk but we walked into St Ives from the property and via Lelant beach another day. This beach is perfect for dog walkers too.

The cottage is very clean and comfortable and the location is perfect for St Ives, Penzance, and St Michael's Mount.

A lovely spotlessly clean comfortable cottage that has everything you need and in good location.

We loved our stay,it does what it says on the box.

A lovely modern clean cottage that has everything you need and is well positioned to get to St Ives and Hayle . Would recommend and dog friendly too.

This dog friendly cottage is perfect - everything had been thought of. There are walks directly from the cottage - Carbis bay is 3 miles away across fields, St Ives is within 10 mins drive - great location, great cottage.

It was a lovely, well equipped cottage and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Excellent cottage. Spotlessly clean. Great welcome pack. Extremely well equipped. Perfectly described.

A great find.

Thank you for your review. There is, as you mention, a step up to the bath which some may not find suitable, so we include a photo of the bathroom, showing this step, on the website. We always try to ensure that the photos and descriptions online give a clear represention, so that guests can make an informed decision on suitability, and hope that this helps.

A clean, comfortable cottage, tucked away in a quiet spot in a great location for visiting all the highlights of the region.

Thank you!
