My wife and I stayed at the Salt House for the first 4 nights of our honeymoon in September. I couldn't recommend it highly enough - it's beautifully designed with attention given to the smallest details, has amazing breakfasts, charming and helpful hosts and an unbeatable location/view. It's a really special place - I can't imagine staying anywhere else when... More

Just returned after spending a few days in Cornwall, part of which was a two night stay at Salt House. Our stay could not be faulted, delicious quality breakfast in our room, very high comfort levels with a superb bed and excellent shower. We did not meet Sharon but Alan was an excellent host. Had a great meal in Porthminster... More

I don't think there are any reviews which are anything less that glowing for the Salt House. The location is glorious, we slept with the curtains and window open, no-one overlooking you and no light pollution, just the lights across the bay twinkling and beautiful sunrises. The breakfast is fabulous, Alan and Sharon strike the perfect balance between holidaymakers' privacy... More

My husband and I had the best time while staying at Salt House. We stayed in the South room and it was fantastic, with amazing sea views. The breakfast was delicious and the service was excellent. We couldn't fault it!

We stayed in the North Room for 2 nights and had a very enjoyable stay. The house and room is like something from the TV programme Grand Designs. The room was huge with a large balcony with all the plushest fittings. You are a 15-20 min walk from St Ives along the coastal path and a 10 min walk from... More

My husband and I have just returned from 3 nights at The Salt House and have nothing but praise for the venue and hosts. The setting was incredible, with stunning views of the sea and only a short walk into either St Ives or Carbis Bay. The room was beautiful, bright, clean and airy. There was a great selection for...

We stayed in the South room for 3 nights on our minimoon, and we couldn't have picked a better place. The room was beautiful, the hosts were excellent, and the position was great as a base for walks into St Ives, while still feeling secluded because of the position on the side of the hill. The view is amazing too.... More

We stayed at the north room for 2 nights in July. The view is just spectacular! This huge and spotlessly clean room is nicely decorated with some high-end furnitures. The bathroom is enormous, equipped with a walk-in rain shower and a bathtub. Super comfy bed and linens! There are leaflets and DVDs inside the drawers under the TV - very... More

We stayed here at the weekend in the south room . It was fantastic. The room was beautiful with stunning views and the breakfast was lovely. This is somewhere we will definitely come back to. Alan and Sharon were great hosts and such a lovely walk to the beach or St Ives.

Our trip to Cornwall centred at St. Ives was made brilliant by our stay at the Salt House. The South room we stayed in is stylishly furnished and comfortable with a spotlessly clean and equally stylish bathroom. The view out to sea is gorgeous. I could easily have spent a week gazing at the sea. We set out for Land's... More
