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.

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.

September 2016

Very much enjoyed our stay.

Thank you for your helpful review. We have now added a note on the website, to highlight that there are external steps that lead up to the Academy properties. Tanya, Customer Services

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

August 2015

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