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.

It was our second holiday at 14 Carrack Dhu it is the perfect house for a family holiday in St Ives.

It has lovely sized rooms, a beautiful garden and even the luxury of a personal parking space which are gold dust when parking in St Ives. The hills make good exercise when returning to house after an ice cream or a pasty at beach.

Would highly recommend 14 Carrck Dhu.

Superb property ideally located and catered for the whole of the family. Top loft room brilliant for three growing boys and the view from the main bedroom fantastic

Lovely location and convenient for going down the front, apart from the climb back up the hill. Beautiful views from front bedroom window. Very good for having it’s own parking space. Love St Ive’s, will always come back again.

If you want to be close to all the amenities that St Ives has to offer, this is a great property. Parking space is invaluable but caution the steep and narrow approach to the property.

Walking distance to town, beaches and the South West Coastal path - all of which are fantastic.

This is a large property with one bathroom so bear that in mind but overall this was a very comfortable and very convenient property for a great holiday in St Ives.

Beautiful clean large family home, this did not have the feel of a holiday let, lots of personal touches and good quality fixtures and fittings, beds were very comfortable, much closer to the town than we expected, easy walk down, good exercise on the way back, perfect for two families, loads of games and books; we loved it

Lovely property for large family. Be aware it’s hilly and lacks curtains!

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your time here. Unfortunately, much of St Ives is hilly and so most properties will have a bit of an uphill walk back to them at the end of your busy day out exploring, unless you choose one of the properties right in the heart of the town, but then you may be compromising on other areas like space, parking, outdoor areas for example. So we hope that you didn't mind the walk back in order to benefit from all that nice space on offer at this property. With regards to the lack of curtains, the owners of this property liked and opted for blinds in most rooms as opposed to curtains, which may not be to everyone's preference, but we have passed on your feedback to them, for their consideration. Thank you for taking the time to send in your feedback and we hope to see you again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Had a wonderful stay in St Ives and will return next year. The views from the house and its proximity to the town and beaches made our holiday.

We had a lovely stay in this family friendly home. Although up a hill there were various routes into St Ives town and harbour and it was great to be so close to all amenities. We loved the sea views, garden and the cosy aga.

Excellent location for walking to the beach and into St Ives. A nice light bright house with very comfortable beds.

Lovely large house which is very close to the harbour. The view of St Ives is fantastic!

Spacious house for a large family,giving the teenagers to chill and down time plus the master bedroom and its views at sunrise and night time you can just sit and watch!

We love this house! So well equipped it feels like home. Great location close to shops and restaurants but spacious enough to cook and eat in the large kitchen/ diner. Great views from garden terrace and upstairs bedrooms.

Perfect location only 5 mins walk to St Ives centre. House was great size for the 7 of us and very comfortable with everything you would need. Please note only 1 car park space which doesn't help with 2 families.

Thank you for your comments, it's lovely to read how much you enjoyed 14 Carrack Dhu. Unfortunately there is only 1 parking space there; but do not hesitate to contact the team for advise on the closest public car parks if ever you are bringing a second car. We hope that we will see you back here again soon, and thanks again for taking the time to send in your comments. Tanya, Customer Services

Comfortably furnished. Excellent kitchen for families. Excellent main bedroom with wonderful views

A comfortable, spacious house in an excellent location. close to lovely beaches as well as the town centre but nice and quiet (except for the sound of seagulls!). Being St Ives you need to be prepared for walking up hill to get back to the house.
