We have stayed at the Rivendell on four occasions of the past five years. Angela and Barrie are great. They are really helpful and Angela is always on hand at breakfast to advise on different places you may wish to visit, while Barrie is busy cooking your lovely breakfasts. The Rivendell is a wonderful choice of accommodation and we wouldn't... More

Had a wonderful stay, Angela and Barry were attentive to all we needed. Room 5 has a super view overlooking the harbour, although a bit compact it was clean and catered for our every requirement, with plenty of draw and wardrobe space, only drawback were the seagulls who liked to roost on the roof above. Breakfast was plentyful to set... More

From the first moment we met Angela and Barrie we knew that Rivendell would become a special place.It certainly has. Over the last eight years we've visited sometimes twice a year. Every time the welcome, service and food was second to none.Comfortable, clean, in one word, "Perfect" Views breathtaking, amenities good. Plenty of places to eat and drink whatever your... More

This was a well needed break and on arrival we could not locate the BnB as our sat nav wasn't the best we rung Barrie and Angela who were happy to give us directions. On arrival they kept us a well needed parking space and took our bags to our room. We were offered a pot of tea and shown... More

Rivendell is a lovely guest house run by Angela and Barry, who are really friendly and make you very welcome. The rooms are beautiful, great value and clean. Rivendell is quite conveniently located - just off the road into St Ives - and is a very short walk from town as well as a short drive out. There's parking and... More

Just back from staying with Angela and Barrie. They are the perfect hosts, very knowledgeable about the area and its amenities. The premises are very comforable and well within walking distance of the main town. We will certainly go back - and Barrie cooks a mean breakfast!
