I am a college student from the United States studying abroad for a year in Exeter and decided to take a weekend to St. Ives as I have always wanted to see the Tate. I found Conerways online and it wounded fabulous, so I booked it. I have nev er hd a more enjoyable stay. Tim is an absolute darling. He made me feel so incredibly welcomed an swas so helpful. When I arrived, Jo immediatly offered me a cup of tea and we chatted for a bit. That kind of welcoming touch is what makes Cornerwasy so special...you immediatly feel a part of the family. And where to begin on breakfast?! I had the most wonderful English breakfast, and Tim's tomatos and especailly his mushrooms (always a personal favorite) were matched by none. After that wonderful breakfast, i felt ready to conquer St. Ives and had energy to go for hours of coastal walking!The breakfast room was lovely..lit by many tiny tea lights and warm and cozy. I adored every minute of my stay and wish I didn't have to leave to come back for Monday classes. Really, it was a most fantastic and wonderful weekend, like none I have ever had! I can't wait to go back and want to thank Tim and everyone for an INCREDIBLE WONDERFUL FANTASTIC LOVELY weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
