4/5 Good

RJhols 20020
Beautiful cottage extremely clean the bed was very comfortable and there was plentiful supply of towels. The location was good the downside was the parking you would of been extremely lucky to get a parking space at the nearest car park and it’s a 20 min walk to the RFC car park up a steep hill however that is St Ives so I have to be realistic.

5/5 Excellent

Very close to harbour and town , and not to many hills to walk to get back to property !
At 6’4”tall I had a couple of issues , but all in all , the description of the property “ did what it said on the tin .” Only criticism could do with a little more work top in tiny kitchen could perhaps have a folding shelf or table , and possibly a microwave would be more useful than an oven , other than that enjoyed stay very much . Thank you Leslie and Matt.

5/5 Excellent

Cute & Bijoux in perfect location
Three night stay at this tiny cottage and what a location it’s in. Literally less than a minute from the main shopping street. Tiddles is equipped with everything you’d need. Kitchen is tiny but lovely. Plenty of eating places in St Ives if you don’t want to cook. Spacious bedroom with fluffy towels and a very shiny modern bathroom. We had a scrummy welcome pack plus milk etc upon arrival and communication with the owner was excellent. We plan to return in 2020 and stay again.

5/5 Excellent

A cute cottage
Lovely spot very central everything I needed was available. The chocolates and champagne were a surprise on arrival. The folder answered any questions I had. I would recommend friends to stay.

5/5 Excellent

Excellent stay
Excellent location 2 mins from main street everything in the cottage you need and more. Lesley the owner very helpful. Spotless clean and modern. Would stay again. Parking 5 mins away.
