“Wonderful B & B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

My husband and I stayed with Danny & Lee for just 1 night in June 2011. We wished we could have stayed for longer. We had been let down by the original B & B we had booked, but ended up at the Little Leaf instead. This turned out to be the best thing that could have happened to us. Our room was fantastic. Lovely and clean with plenty of room. We had the best view of St. Ives you could have asked for. We felt on top of the world. Danny and Lee were very friendly hosts and the breakfast was great also. We had come to visit Cornwall from Christchurch N.Z. not long after our devastating earthquake and we found somewhere beautiful and soothing to calm our shattered nerves. Thank you so much Danny and Lee for being a life-line when we really needed it. You have a truly lovely B&B in a beautiful part of England. Gerry and Denise Macpherson, Christchurch, New Zealand

Spent 3 nights here September 16 - 19 and I have to say that having read reviews on TA I was looking forward to a pleasant stay.
What I got far exceeded my expectations.
From the moment we walked through the door until the moment we sadly had to leave, nothing was too much trouble. Danny & Lee are two of the nicest people you could wish to meet, full of bubbly enthusiasm that is positively infectious.
The house is spotlessly clean, breakfast is a shear joy with nothing too much trouble to ask for.
None standard requested are not only dealt with but relished by both of them.
Their knowledge of the area is superb and information & tips are forthcoming at every opportunity.

I cannot rate this place highly enough, indeed I would go so far as to say it is the best guest house I have ever stayed at.
Absolutely superb.

Room Tip: Great for couples

We have just returned from staying at Little Leaf and I have to tell you all how fantastic this B&B is. From the moment you arrive you are really looked after, the view into St Ives from the breakfast room is out of this world. Our room was clean and well maintained with Cipper Tea that is now my favourite choice for a cuppa. The Breakfast is delicious with a choice of different specials every day. I highly recommend to anyone visiting St Ives.

I stayed here with my parents for 4 nights and after having seen the trip advisor reviews I was really hoping tha little leaf lived up to expectations. Well we needed have worried the whole stay was amazing from the warm welcome from Danny to the great local information and recommendations provided by Lee.
The rooms were beautifully decorated and very clean, it was only a short 5 minute walk into st Ives where there are so many great restaurants.
I must make a special mention of the fabulous breakfasts espc the fruit cinnamon toast!

We can't wait to go back.

I cannot speak too highly about this lovely Guest House, we have just returned from there after staying three nights in Room 2 with the best view of St Ives. Danny and Lee were both lovely people who run the Little Leaf superbly. Our room was light, airy and just simply a pleasure to stay in. As for the breakfasts, what can I say, simply the best, which was varied every day. Those sausages Danny were scrumptious!!! Thank you Lee for the tea and biscuits when we arrived, much appreciated. Also liked the variety of teas in our room to choose from. One of the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Will make a return visit for sure.

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in August on our first trip to St Ives and had a great stay. We booked Little Leaf on the basis of previous reviews and weren't dissapointed, our room was at the back of the house so we missed out on the views but you dont go to St Ives to stay in your room so it wasnt a problem. The house and room were spotless and welcoming and both Danny and Lee were excellent hosts. The breakfasts were fantastic (loved the cinnamon french toast) and we really felt at home. It's only a five minute walk down to the town and if we ever go back to St Ives we would be happy to stay here again.

We returned yesterday from a fantastic stay at Little Leaf. We had a fabulous welcome from Danny and Lee, despite turning up earlier than planned! The Guest House is really beautiful and homely. We stayed in Room 5, which was right at the top of the house and the views are stunning. The room was tastefully decorated and the bed was really comfortable, with a huge quilt, so my husband and I weren't fighting over it! The breakfasts were really tasty; it was so nice to have a full English breakfast that wasn't swimming in grease! Little touches like being able to order breakfast the night before and requesting a time for breakfast make things so much more lovely as you are not waiting around for breakfast. Danny and Lee are really lovely attentive hosts, nothing was too much trouble and Lee's biscuits (by the breakfast menu) were delicious! Danny and Lee were also very knowledgeable about the local area and happily recommended restaurants and other places to go, such as driving to Sennen Cove and walking around to Land's End - amazing views and far less 'touristy'.

If we return to Cornwall, which I'm sure we will, having stayed here, we will definitely stay here again! You really can tell that Danny and Lee have poured their hearts and souls into Little Leaf; it's really paid off, it's a fabulous place. Thank you for having us in your home.

Room Tip: Room 5 has stunning views of the bay and is at the top of the house.
