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.

What our guests say...

We know how important honest reviews are when it comes to booking your holiday. To help you choose the right property for you, we publish all reviews left by guests who have stayed here in the past, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines. Please bear in mind that some facilities referred to by past guests in reviews can be removed or changed at any time.

Very spacious property. Great location although hilly to get to. Amazing views. Car park next door .

Lovely place!

Great location ideal for exploring wonderful St Ives. 8 of us stayed and it’s a short 10 minute walk to porthminster beach and into town via the steps.

Great house for a large group. Plenty of space. Fabulous views from the sitting room. Good size and potential but let down by the standard of decor/cleanliness. Enhancements are clearly a work in progress but with a little way to go yet. A quiet, scenic location above the town, close to long stay parking, but be aware that there is no immediate access from the roadside to the house which means a bit of effort unloading and reloading luggage. The walk to the sea front is quick and easy but involves a lot of steps and /or steep hill which may be challenging for less energetic guests.

Thank you for your review. We were so pleased to see that you felt the property was nice and spacious even for a larger group of people and that you all enjoyed the amazing views from the sitting room of the property, though very sorry if there had been areas that could have been cleaner. We would have had the housekeeper re-attend straight away had we been aware at the time. Whilst loading/unloading can be tricky with no parking at the property and no area for unloading, we do hope that you found this compromise worth it, for the extremely handy location; walking distance to all the great places in the town, yet away from the hustle and bustle associated with being right in the heart of the town. The uphill walk from town back to the property certainly can be a good way to stretch the legs, but as you have pointed out, may prove tricky for those who have limited mobility, so if you think this may be a problem for you then please feel free to get in touch with us before booking. Thanks again for your comments, we hope to see you again soon. Ben, Customer Services UPDATE APRIL 2021: THE OWNERS HAVE SINCE HAD A NEW KITCHEN INSTALLED

House in a great position but is very tired and needs some TLC. Not having a designated place to park is a problem as parking in St Ives is at a premium. You can pay to park for the duration of your stay in the car park at the top of the road if you can find a space.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to read that you encountered some troubles with finding a space for your week at Mor Kernow. Whilst we would love all the properties that we market to offer parking for guests, there are many properties that cannot facilitate parking close by but there are various car parks in St Ives that guests can use. The closest car parks to Mor Kernow are Park Avenue and the Leisure Centre which is a short walk down the hill. There is also the option to purchase a rover ticket which allows guests to pay a set fee for the week and have the option of parking in many car parks throughout Cornwall, which is a great option if you are planning on exploring other parts of the County too. We will pass on your feedback regarding the tiredness of the property, to the property owner and will check everything over on our next property inspection, so that we can pass on further details and recommendations to the property owner. Thank you for the helpful comments and we hope to see you again soon. Lucy, Customer Services UPDATE APRIL 2021: THE OWNERS HAVE SINCE HAD A NEW KITCHEN INSTALLED

Amazing view, excellent location for beaches and town, and car park right next door - would definitely stay at Mor Kernow again. Kitchen a bit small but overall plenty of room. Stair gate at the property was a bonus as there is a steep flight of stairs down to the front door.

Beautiful house, beautiful location so sad to leave. We will definitely book again

Wonderful stay once again at Mor Kernow. Great size for our family with such glorious views from the lounge across St Ives to the harbour.

Great service as well from the Aspects team - had a problem with the lights in one bathroom but they got it fixed within a couple hours of our call.

We will be going back.

Spacious with great views. We enjoyed our stay.

Mor Kernow is very comfortable and family friendly with amazing views across the harbour. The location is ideal for the town centre and the leisure centre. We had a lovely time. Thank you!

We’ve had two fabulous holidays now at Mor Kernow , it’s perfectly situated in St Ives with a fantastic view of St Ives ?? we love it.

Fantastic company to book through. Answered all our questions and great customer service.

Nice amount of space. Good location and view.

Lovely clean and warm property (we went in Feb half-term) and you really find it hard to pull yourself away from the amazing view from the lounge. Beds were some of the most comfortable we have slept in.

Perfect location to walk to the town and beaches - we didn't use the car all week.

We will definitely be going back.

Wonderful week by the sea in a gorgeous house with stunning views of St Ives, perfect location what's not to love!

It may be useful to make it clear that the property is set fairly high up within St Ives and you need to be fit to frequently go down to and up from the town and beaches.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments. Being in such a fantastic location, overlooking the town and harbour, making the most of those stunning views, does involve an uphill walk back to the property after a day at one of the beautiful beaches of St Ives or wondering around all the lovely shops, galleries and restaurants in the town. We try to give an idea of the properties elevation within the photos on the website, and this walk back up to the property may not be suitable for everyone, but we hope that you found it worth it. Tanya, Customer Services

It was the first time that I’ve rented a cottage and was delighted with Mor Kernow,it was perfect for my grownup family and my grandson,more than enough room,clean,well furnished and ideally situated in St Ives,the car park was also very well situated,I would also recommend the Just Park app is value for money .

Lovely large home with stunning views over st Ives harbour. Clean and fully equipped. Close to parking and amenities.

Mor Kernow is ideally situated very close to a long stay car park and overlooking St Ives bay. There are several steep steps and slopes to walk into town but they are manageable - and we made use of the taxi rank next to the cinema a couple of times when walking back - I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this as a place to stay and hope you enjoy it as much as we did

Once again we have had a lovely time at Mor Kernow. Our booking for next year is already confirmed as we really love it at this house.

Stunning view! Very central location and excellent facilities inside.

This property is in a great location for enjoying the views down to the harbour. We all loved our stay and have booked again for next year.

The views really are outstanding and you won't find better in all of St Ives.

A nice location but really only suitable for 6 adults and need better maintenance and improvements to equipment.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you very much for taking the time to send in your feedback. We are sorry to read that you felt Mor Kernow was in need of better maintenance and improvements. You will be pleased to hear that since your stay the owner has had an overhaul of the garden and a regular gardener in place, a new balcony installed, the roof repaired and the property is being redecorated. With regards to the size of the property; there are enough beds to accommodate 8, with 2 double bedrooms, a king and a twin and we try to ensure that our photos and description accurately reflect the seating and dining arrangements, so we are sorry if this was smaller than you had anticipated. We are always looking at ways to improve guests comfort and experience, and we hope that you can see from this, how ourselves and property owners, use the feedback given, so thank you for sending your comments. Tanya, Customer Services.

Great family location

take oxygen for the trek to the front door

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments. Being perched above the town, with views over St Ives Bay, you do have a bit of steep walk up to the property from the town and beaches, and as stated on our website, several steps into the property itself! It is certainly something to consider before booking but we hope that the views make it worthwhile. Tanya, Customer Services.
