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.

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.

Jun 2019

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.

May 2019

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

Oct 2018

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

Oct 2018

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.

Aug 2018

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

Jun 2018

Wonderful Cottage and lovely place to stay.

May 2018

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 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.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

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. Tanya, Customer Services.

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