“A place to relax, re energise and be close to nature.”

December in St Ives was a chance to relax, re energise my batteries and enjoy being close to the sea. As a group of friends we all found something to please in St Ives, quaint shops, a good sample of restaurants open out of season and the best thing of all were the coastal walks and just having time to watch the waves and spotting seals swimming off the rocks.
The cottage has a good sized double room and and an equally generous twin bedded room which gave us a good amount of space so we did not feel on top of each other. The kitchen is well kitted out, hot water on tap and as it was December a welcome efficient heating system for added cosiness.
There is plenty of entertainment with x2 good Smart TVs and free WIfi which I am ashamed to say is a must even on holiday. With such a central location, I can only imagine that in the Summer it must be even better with beaches literally on your doorstep within minutes.

“Lovely out of season break”

St.ives is the perfect winter destination. We travelled by train wihich was straight through from Paddington to St. Erth and arrived at St.ives on a bright and blustery Monday afternoon.
The cottage is tiny, but totally charming and is a real home from home. It is literally just steps from the seafront. Inside it is cosy and full of well thought out extras.
Derrick sent us lots of helpful thoughts and ideas about where to go and what to do, so we went walking along the windswept beaches, had a cream tea overlooking the sea, shopped for Christmas presents in the little lanes where all the shops were quiet and everyone very friendly, visited the Tate and had a guided tour and returned home a few days later feeling happy and refreshed.

“Lives up to all the reviews!”

It's a perfectly idyllic little cottage, ideal location for the harbour and town centre - not more than a few mins away from all the excellent restaurants, bars and beaches. Not too much of a hill to walk up, which was great as husband has some mobility problems and anything steeper would have been a challenge
It's extremely well equipped, and the wi-fi, central heating and smart TVs were an additional bonus. Bed very comfy, all rooms very small which certainly added to the places' character and charm
As everyone else has already pointed out, Derek is a pleasure to deal with - extremely helpful and full of useful advice! Certainly, listen to him when he says don't trust your Sat Nav in St Ives. We didn't at first and ended up driving all over the place trying to find the cottage. Once there though, the Island car park is literally a couple of minutes away and no hassle at all to park (this is November though - can't imagine it being that easy in summer)
Our only disappointment during the stay was eating at the Sloop. It's a lovely looking place, and literally only a stumble away from the cottage, but unless you just want to sit outside and watch the world go by (which is, of course, an excellent way to spend ones time) it's not particularly welcoming. Staff don't seem to care about the customers, food is (half) decent but was let down by cheap frozen chips) and there didn't actually seem to be much soul in the place. (Considering it's circa 1312, the tables and chairs and everything on the walls seem very late 20th century and cheap

Enough of the Sloop - there are so many lovely eateries around that you should stay at least 2 weeks to give them all a try, or you could always make use of the beautifully kitted out kitchen and cook yourself some local caught fish.

Would thoroughly recommend this cottage.

We were 5 adults but we fitted in. We found the place clean and with all facilities, utilities & equipment we could need. The TVs were great when we were in and the Wi-Fi was very good for all that used it.
The cottage is very central for the harbour and therefore all the shops which was great. We walked the dog out daily around the Island which again was very convenient as well.

All in all very difficult to fault and we would recommend highly.

“absolutely wonderful stay.”

Not long returned from a wonderful stay in this charming cottage. Ideally located just a stones throw away from the harbour (literally!) everywhere is easy to get to and close by. Little attention to details with the decorations make it feel very homely and welcoming straightaway. It was also very nice to arrive to a cream tea!

Received lots of useful information once we'd first booked and a handy guide whilst we were there. The advice we found most useful was to book a restaurant in advance, even in September, saturdays were quite busy! We chose a lovely little restaurant on the harbour front called 'onshore' and would definitely recommend it! Also was advised if we wanted to go on any boat trips, especially the one to Seal Island, to go at low tide so you can see more seals and we were very lucky to see lots!

Very helpful owners and lovely little cottage! Only downside is that our trip went too fast! Would definitely book again.
