This was our first visit to St Ives and we spent four nights at the delightful Beachcroft. Our host, Karen, was very welcoming, friendly and informative on arrival. Our room, Godrevy, was very impressive. We stay in a lot of 5* hotels and guesthouses and we consider this room to be one of the best that we've stayed in. The... More

We got married in Cornwall (nr Bodmin) and needed somewhere to unwind and chill for a couple of days before heading off to the honeymoon. Beachcroft gave us this in spades. Lovely welcoming service (even to the extent of driving to Penzance in search of the champagne we requested). We stayed in the Mousehole room, with a view of the... More

What a super guesthouse! We spent three nights at Beachcroft as part of one week in Cornwall. The welcome, bedroom, facilities and breakfast were outstanding. Very helpful and informative host. Very modern bedroom and a special mention for the immaculate bathroom with a very high spec and extremly clean. Very nice outdoor sun terrace with nice views. Both breakfast room... More

My husband and I stayed there in April 2010 and we never got around writing a review... So better late than never! We absolutely loved staying at Beachcroft. We usually prefer to stay at hotels but this B&B made us change our mind. The hosts were lovely and the breakfast, the best I ever had. Our room "Trevose" was spacious,... More

We've just spent three nights at this beautiful boutique B&B, and I can't recommend it highly enough. From the moment we arrived, (four hours early, a huge error on my part), we were welcomed like old friends. Karen, the owner, wasn't at all fazed by our arrival, and told us to sit in the lounge and our room would be... More

Check in. Made most welcome by Karen with a much welcomed coffee after quite a long drive. Parking is tight , but so is everywhere in St Ives and Carbis Bay. Room. Stayed in Mousehole room. Excellent views, comfortable bed, and a fantastic en suite wet room. Ample space for hanging clothes and storage. Could be described as small, but... More

We would like to echo all that has been written about Beachcroft Retreat. A beautiful house, spotless and stylish to say the least. Karen is a wonderful, welcoming host and the 'girls' were lovely. Breakfast was amazing, fresh local ingredients beautifully cooked. Location perfect and as the name suggests a 'retreat' without a doubt. Thank you for a wonderful few... More

Refined and stylish, this boutique B&B with views out to Carbis Bay was everything we'd hoped for: Beautifully presented house and garden; delicious breakfasts served in a light and airy dining room and friendly, informal service. Just perfect!

What can we say, from the moment we arrived at Beachcroft we felt relaxed, comfortable, stress free, at home. Beachcroft is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and is in a quiet residential area of Carbis Bay, just a 30 minute walk along a coastal path to St Ives. My husband had specially chosen this weekend away for my 50th birthday and... More

The Beachcroft is an excellent and lovingly run B & B. The entire house is tastefully decorated and located in a quiet residential area with high recreational value. St Ives is easily reach by train or bus. A car is not required. Our room "Trevose" had a wonderful sea view, was very well equipped and perfectly clean. The hostess was... More
