“Loved this cottage, the fresh flowers made a real difference, very welcoming and would definitely recommend. The team that I dealt with were very efficient and helpful and were a pleasure to deal with. Would definitely recommend them. St Ives was beautiful and the fact the beach was outside the back door was a bonus. ”

“We had a lovely long weekend break in this unique property. Perfect location right on the beach but not too close to the noisy bit of the harbour. Perfect size for 2 people and the space has been well used, felt larger than we expected from the property photos.”
