Just back from a week in beautiful St Ives. Our stay in 2 Academy cottage was even better than expected as it is truly a gem of a place, right in the centre of the town , only 5 minutes stroll to the beach but considering it's perfect location, amazingly quiet and with the extra bonus of a sun drench and very private little courtyard.. Furnished to a very high standard and with 2 ensuite bathrooms it was the perfect base to explore St Ives and its surrounding. Not to be missed : the sun set on the beautiful porthmeor beach, truly spectacular and highly recommended !

Lovely compact cottage in a fab location , 2 bathrooms is a bonus and the kitchen is tiny but well equipped , Like in the description noise can be heard from the apartment above and from the alley that runs down the side of the property but if you want to walk out your front door and be in the heart of lovely St ives and its beaches this cottage ticks a lot of boxes . Aspects Holidays are the go to company for our Cornish Holidays with fab helpful staff from start to finish ' Thank you

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.

A well appointed cottage. Central location just off Fore Street. Ideal for family with young children We had a very pleasant stay. Thank you to owners and Aspects Lynn & Tony

Lovely cottage in a fantastic st Ives location! Great service from Aspects and would definitely recommend.

What a gem of a cottage, very light & airy, decorated in a modern style and extremely comfortable. It is a great location, so close to Fore Street yet tucked away from the hustle & bustle! We had a very enjoyable and relaxed stay, and look forward to returning next year.

Lovely cottage right in the middle of St Ives. Great location. Please note there is no parking and when you arrive you drive down Fore Street so watch out for your wing mirrors and the crowds of people....

Just returned from 2 Academy Cottage..... the cottage was perfect ....2. Bedrooms, 2 en-suite. Ideal for the three of us. Very well equipped and the location was great....centrally located yet tucked away from the Main Street. The bus service to and from the large car park near leisure centre was brilliant, efficient and very regular.

Great cottage, very clean, comfortable and in a fantastic location for the turn and beach access. Worked really well for our family of 2 adults and 2 kids. Highly recommended.

Very comfortable and quiet

Lovely cottage, very convenient and remarkably peaceful.

Extremely convenient for the town and restaurants.

This cottage is right in the heart of St Ives, with really easy access to the town and seafront. The cottage is well decorated and was beautifully cleaned for our arrival. Accessing the keys and dropping them off was easy and the communication from Aspects was fantastic. We would definately use them again.

Very much enjoyed our stay.

If you are looking for a central location but in a quiet location this property is perfect. The two bathrooms are fantastic for families. The patio is the perfect place to unwind with a glass of wine after a long day on the beach which is only a short walk away. Highly recommended

Great location. Lovely furnishings and decor. Have stayed at this cottage before and would stay again

It's a lovely little cottage, great for a family in the perfect location for shops, restaurants and walking to the beaches.
