St Ives Town

Many of our larger town houses are situated just a couple of minutes’ walk from the centre and these offer ideal family accommodation, many with gardens, something of a rarity in St Ives. If all that shopping and socialising gets too much, you can always get away from it all and relax in the tranquil setting of Trewyn Gardens, a real little haven, tucked away in the heart of the town.

So, for self catering holidays in St Ives with everything on your doorstep, the town is the place to be.

We had a lovely stay at 1 Sandows Lane; the welcome bag and card was a lovely touch. The cottage had everything we needed and was perfect for the two of us plus 1 dog. We would definitely stay there again.

Lovely homely cottage, enjoyed our stay very much Excellent use of space, comfortable beds Would have liked more days at the cottage. Many Thanks

This is a clean, comfortable, well equipped cottage in a quiet area. (Beds very comfy). We would certainly stay there again. Just be aware there is a short climb from the harbour back up to the cottage and there is no parking outside the cottage you have to park in a car park.

Had a lovely time at 1 Sandows Ln. The cottage is a lovely down hill walk in to town but the walk back can be quite strenuous (I was 7 months pregnant at the time haha!). Considering the price of the cottage and location I would say it was good value for money. We stayed as 4 adults, a 2yr old and a dog and we had enough space. The beds were comfortable and the amenities were exactly has described.

Lovely little cottage with comfy beds in a great location. Good value for money for St Ives!!

Maritime and coastal feel to a small fisherman's type cottage with excellent use of space. Spacious walk in shower and no expense spared with the cooker! Generous amount of glassware and plates etc. Nice touch with the DVD's. Warm feel and cosy , especially with the open stove fire. Perfect for couples! Andy Mercer

Lovely cosy cottage! We had a great time...
Only down side is bathroom/toilet down stairs so a few visits in the night.

Thanks for your feedback and we are glad to hear that you had such a great time. The layout may not work for everyone, with the bathroom downstairs and bedrooms upstairs, so we try to make this as clear as we can within the property description so that guests know what to expect. We hope that it was what you had imagined and that it suited all members of your party. Thanks again for the helpful comments and we hope to see you back soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Aspects were brilliant and would use them again.

Quiet location, cottage well equipped and a good base for St Ives and surrounding area.

Great little cottage within a 15 minutes walk of porthminster beach (our favourite) and yet again so easy to book with aspects holidays, would highly recommend booking with this company as we certainly will be doing again!

Excellent property, very clean, comfortable beds and all the equipment in good condition. Only downside for my visit was not being able to park outside the property and quite a climb up a hill from town which meant we did not go out into town in the evening.

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at 1 Sandows Lane. Unfortunately parking is in high demand within St Ives, with many properties (like 1 Sandows Lane) not having this facility, so it can mean a bit of a walk to a car park and a 10-15 minute walk into town or to the beaches, which is on a gradual incline on the way back to the property at the end of the day. We are glad that you agreed though, that this was well worth it for what 1 Sandows Lane offers. Tanya, Customer Services

A lovely stay at 1 Sandows Lane with my mum and 2 dogs. Very cosy and well equipped. Comfortable beds and a great location not to long walk from the beaches and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again!

Very cosy, but wood not supplied!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments, and we are delighted to hear that you liked 1 Sandows Lane, and found it warm and cosy. We are very sorry to hear that you did not have a supply of wood to start off your holiday there. The owner usually supplies some bits to get you started, which were obviously overlooked on this occasion. Had we been aware, we would have happily organised some straight away for you; we are very sorry that we did not have this opportunity. We hope that you managed to find some quickly enough so that you could enjoy the wood burner, and hope that you had a fantastic time here in St Ives. Tanya, Customer Services

Very cosy feel to the cottage, lovely quiet location, would certainly book again.

Lovely cottage for a couple of two dogs. Location fantastic to St Ives Town.

Lovely accommodation, super location. Would consider booking this property again. Thank you Aspect Holidays

Arrived for a week's stay with my mum, and we were delighted to find the cottage even better than expected from the photos. It's small, but beautifully formed, with an ingenious use of space, making it perfect for us, or a couple/small family.

The decor is lovely, with art work scattered throughout, giving it that personal touch. The kitchen is really well equipped, even though we attempted nothing more ambitious than breakfast! It's a bit of a hike up a pretty steep hill, but nothing unmanageable (and a good chance to walk off those pasties).

All in all, it suited our needs perfectly, and we'd be delighted to go back.

Delightful cosy cottage very well equipped good location for beaches & town centre looking forward to returning

A lovely cottage set up well for our holiday.

Sandows Lane.... an absolute gem. It suits us perfectly!! As soon as you walk in it feels like you belong there! Our second stay and there will be many more!

Perfect bolt hole for a family of 4 with a dog/s to stay and explore St Ives. The cottage has a contemporary interior design with a lovely homely feel.

Should be explained on the website and in the brochure that the bathroom is located downstairs in the property.The courtyard was a lot smaller than it appeared in the picture.

We are sorry if the layout of this property did not quite work for your party. Many of the traditional fisherman's cottages in St Ives, have more unusual/quirky layouts than more modern properties, but we have now made the bathroom location clearer on the website description. Thank you for your helpful suggestion and we hope that you had a great time. Tanya, Customer Services

Such a beautiful, quaint cottage in an ideal location for St Ives. Would definitely stay here again :-)

The property was fantastic and having visited St Ives for almost 30 years it is up there with the best. Use of space is outstanding and it didnt feel lile a small cottage. Very clean and well kept. The cottage is stocked with everything you could possibly need.

Great cottage with all the facilities. Quiet spot off the main road and very handy for walking into town or travelling around the region.
