What a place. I can only repeat what the previous travellers have said. A warm welcome from Trish and Michael. Fantastic rooms, both warm and comfy and absolutely spotless. Great breakfast in the morning. The location of the cottage is perfect with pubs, beaches and and everything else you may want,only a couple of minutes away. I love St. Ives... More

We booked for one night at this guest house. The room was very clean and comfortable and a lovely breakfast the following morning. I would recommend this guest house, friendly owners and close proximity of the beach and village.
