      This year, house has been painted and updated and well presented which has addressed everything we felt should be done. New bathroom fittings too. 5* service from Cornish Riviera Holidays!

      This fisherman's cottage is bang in the centre of St. Ives, close to everything, yet quiet and secluded. We especially loved the views from the top room, not only over the harbour, but also the sea on the other side. I was so relieved not to have brought a car! The cobbled street is only for pedestrians. Likewise, there are steps up the road and plenty of steps in the property, so a certain level of agility is needed. Other reviewers recommended earplugs, but I was pleased to have brought an eye mask as the top room is very light. Also, do bring condiments as the house has none, though the host provides a washing tablet for the washing machine. But these are very minor niggles. The place has character, is spotlessly clean and fresh white throughout. Thanks so much to Cornish Riviera Holidays for helping us use the telly when it was raining!

      Cute cottage in an excellent location – so close to all the best bits of St Ives. Clean and well maintained. Check in was easy and good communication with the owners.
