Property conditions & facilities

5/5 Excellent

Lovely cottage in a convenient location
We had a lovely week at this character cottage near St Ives, location was excellent - walking distance to Porthkidney beach which is huge, dog friendly and much quieter than the other beaches, and the branch line train into St Ives is a bonus. The cottage was quiet and comfortable, it is small (we stayed with two labradors!) but cozy and worked well for us. Paul and Jane were very friendly and helpful hosts.

4/5 Good

Lovely location
An excellent location, the local beach is beautiful and having Hayle and St Ives closeby is great. The property, and the owners, are lovely. Charming cottage, plenty of space for two of us, would love to have made more of the private garden had the weather been better! Will visit again.

4/5 Good

Quaint, cosy and convenient for walks to the beach
Quaint and compact Victorian semi, which is cosy and well-equipped if a little cramped in places. The sheltered and secluded garden is a sun-trap, as well as a useful run for doggies. Several amazing beaches can be reached on foot or by what must be one of the most scenic rail journeys in the UK. The Old Forge was our favourite restaurant, though Watermill and Salt were OK. Paul and Jane kindly provided milk, wine, cookies, tea, coffee and sugar, plus extremely comprehensive and helpful guide to the house and surrounding area.

5/5 Excellent

Home from home
Comfortable little cottage. We all felt very at home including Twiggy the dog. Great to have on-site parking. Good location - short walk from the beach and the station for trains into St. Ives.

5/5 Excellent

September Stay
