Fab little place and located well, but ensure you check that the being is correct size for the bed and that the cleaning of the bathroom is to standard including the expels-air fan in the ceiling.

Otherwise the place is great for a person on there own or a couple.

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.

Lovely property perfect for two people. Great location too.

Sep 2019

Dove's Nest is a lovely little place, nice décor, central and vey convenient, yet quiet. It wasn't suitable for me because of the deep step. Aspects couldn't have been more helpful and measured the step, but the extra inch and a half higher than my home steps caused me problems. I thought of a brilliant solution - buying a non slip step from a disabled aids type shop - if only I'd thought of it on Saturday not on the Thursday. Anyone with mobility problems should be aware of the deep step and sloping slate path. It does look really nice though. The front door step slopes and could also be an issue. The flat is all on one level, small, but not cramped. There was couple of problems, they didn't bother me, so I let Aspects know. The sofa needs replacing, that would stop me re-booking if I was fit enough to cope with the step. Just pointing out some relevant helpful details. For the fit and able it's really nice.

We are so sorry to hear that despite your planning, the height of this step still caused more problems for you than expected. If you do ever want to return, we would be happy to see if we can help with sourcing something on your behalf that could help. Thank you for also letting us know your thoughts on the sofa; it can be quite difficult to find mattresses and sofas that will suit everyone's taste, everyone being different; but we will check it on the next inspection, and in the meantime, monitor for any further feedback on this. Thanks again, and we hope that we will see you back here in St Ives very soon. Tanya, Customer Services

A lovely cosy cottage for a romantic week away we’d definitely return

Jul 2019

Small but well designed ground floor of a cottage, everything you need for self catering is supplied to a good standard. The cottage is in a very quiet location but very well situated for the many shops / bars and restaurants in the area , the beach is a ten minute walk away, overall very impressed and will definitely be back in the future

Apr 2019

Great location and ideal for two !

Despite the difficulty we experienced entering and exiting the cottage each day we still enjoyed our stay and will use Aspects again

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are sorry if there was any confusion over the accessibility of this property. We tag it as being accessible due to its suitability for those with limited mobility, having just a couple of steps up to the property, and being level inside; as opposed to it being wheelchair friendly. I can see that a previous guest review had stated that they were in a wheelchair and found it suitable, so we can see how this could have given you that impression. We are sorry if this caused any issue for you during your stay here, and are glad that you still enjoyed it despite the difficulty that you had. Please do get in contact with us if you are ever looking to return, so that we can help you in finding somewhere that will meet all of your requirements. Tanya, Customer Services

Nicely decorated but be aware it's compact with open kitchen area and lounge/dining area, one small bedroom and small bathroom. Although light inside it does not have a sunny aspect. Very convenient position in town.
