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 fantastic apartment for a family holiday. Two bathrooms were a big plus! Large kitchen dining space & lounge also a bonus! The location is PERFECTION. Right by the sea & in the middle of it all. We WILL be back!!

Aug 2020

Great little cottage located near to the shops, restaurants and beaches, ideal for shopping, eating and generally meandering around this quaint beautiful village. The cottage was very clean and well equipped. The service we had from Aspects was fantastic from start to finish. Our only observation is.... be prepared for possible parking difficulties since you cant park at the cottage due to its location. That said, the cottage was lovely and ideally situated to all the amenities you need for a happy holiday, which more than makes up for the odd parking issue! Absolutely love St Ives and will be back!

Jul 2020

Amazing location with very easy access to Harbour, town, Co-op and beaches. Cosy lounge and well equipped kitchen. Lots of books and games to keep you amused if weather is really bad. Lovely welcome of milk in the fridge plus tea, coffee and sugar, as well as some dishwasher and washing tablets. Service from Aspects was, as usual, wonderful.

Feb 2020

We have stayed at St Ives for many years in various properties and this was one of the best ones.

Well looked after by the owners and had a spacious, updated feel about it all. Nothing felt tired in the property and it was very clean.

Really good location as well and it would be hard to find any real negatives to say here.

Fully recommend this property.

Jan 2020

clean comfortable property in handy location downside. near to all beaches and shopping areas.

Oct 2019

The Cuddy was chosen for its location, Porthminster in one direction the town centre very close and FLAT thoroughly enjoyed our stay, spacious and clean what better recommendation than, we booked again for next September when dropping the keys off.

Sep 2019

Our stay at The Cuddy was 5star. So good we have put a reserve on it for next year.

Jul 2019

Jul 2019

Ideal location. Lovely little cottage. Very homely. More than suited our needs. Enjoyed our stay very much.

Apr 2019

Our second stay at The Cuddy!
A wonderful, cosy, quirky cottage with everything you need for a great stay in St Ives and moments from the Harbour and beaches. Just a couple of minutes walk away, parking in the railway station car park is easy an convenient. Would highly recommend this accommodation.

Feb 2019

Absolutely superb from start to finish. Our second stay at the Cuddy and our favourite place. Fab location too. We also really appreciated the lovely touch re the balloons, bubbly, chocs and card from you all too as it was our honeymoon. So kind of you.

Oct 2018

A wonderful cottage that provides a comfortable stay in the most fantastic location, we miss it already!

Jul 2018

Wonderful location, 2 bathrooms which was a plus with two teenagers.

Apr 2018

Oh "The Cuddy" what a little gem you are, a true Chocolate Box dream, deceivingly more spacious and full of modern charm on the inside than might first appear. Big rooms, tasteful very clean décor and furnishings, comfy beds and sofas and all you need in this extremely convenient location. Drift off to sleep and wake lulled by the sound of the sea, such a restful and pleasing property. We used to stop and stroke the lovely ginger cat who slept on the steps of The Cuddy for many years, we know how happy he must have been to live here, and so wish we did too. Delightful!

Mar 2018

The Cuddy's position is fantastic. Although there was no seaview from the window, a step out of the door and there it was. The waves at Westcott Quay can be quite dramatic and we enjoyed and we're able to watch the spectacle with our cups of tea! It was also close to shops and restaurants. The house had everything we needed, was comfortable and clean. I would definitely recommend The Cuddy for families and couples alike.

Feb 2018

You will not be disappointed booking this cottage it was wonderful , so cosy and everything you will want is there we were sorry to leave , this cottage is a little gem loved it . XXM

Oct 2017

The perfect cottage for us, the location is just right in the middle of all the action but surprisingly not noisy at all at night time. Doesn't have sea views but you just have to come out of the front door and the sea is in front of you! Loved it and would book it again.

Aug 2016

The Cuddy is a spacious, clean cottage with everything you could need for your stay. It is in a quiet position, but the sea is just outside with a short walk to the harbour and the town one way and Porthminster Beach the other.

Apr 2016

Perfect location, comfy beds, quality furniture and fittings - if we didn't have a dog we'd block book it for years to come!

Apr 2016

I recommend 'The Cuddy' cottage for a holiday in St Ives. From the photos I felt this was the place I wanted to live in for a week. Perched over the beach with stunning views on the autumn changing sea and lulled by the tides while so close to the town centre this previously fisherman's house is just ideal.

Dec 2015

The Cuddy is a lovely cottage, very comfortable and spacious and perfectly situated. We will definitely stay here again.

Jun 2015

Highly recommend this cottage for convenience, location, price, cleanliness...perfect spot!

Will be back again!!!

Mar 2015

Superb, spacious, comfortable and well equipped cottage. Ideal for families or couples especially having the location within such easy access to the town
