"I thought the lack of shower might be a problem, as we go in the sea a lot, but in the end, the bath facilities were fine. 3 Love Lane was always warm and welcoming to return to, and it is a credit to the owners that they have resisted modernising, but rather have kept the unique character and charm of this lovely studio home. A perfect retreat for artists and writers, I loved it, and would definitely book again."

"3 Love Lane was so much exceeded our expectations! Such a great little cottage. The kitchen, in particular, was fantastic. Such a cosy space and all the cooking equipment you need. The location is perfect. So close to everything. We really felt like we were staying in the heart of St Ives. I'd love to stay again next year. Thanks."

"A quaint little space with incredible location. Enjoyed the bright living space and the bedroom was cosy and comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom are very dated but this was expected. Loved being able to drop bags and literally be in the sea in Five minutes upon arrival. Didn’t use the kitchen at all. Close to everything you need.” "

"Really nice place -- ideal location, very attractive and comfortable inside. I know some travellers want wifi and the owner is considering adding it. But I had a better holiday because there *wasn't* wifi -- we appreciated a holiday where we could "disconnect" :) Anyway, very happy with our stay."

"Having lived all my life with a Rayburn I now live in a Rayburnless house..so what a joy to return to the warmth and comfort of this magnificent lump of cast iron! That combined with the fact that I have the same cutlery, table mats, floor rug and kitchen chairs made this an eerie home from home. It is as if you have replicated my dream! This is a fabulous place. I only wish I was here for longer but I shall definitely return."
