“Fantastic base for our family holiday!”
Reviewed August 21, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Brilliant holiday home for myself and my growing family. Plenty of room for 5 adults, a 2 year old and a 3 month old. Incredibly well equipped, including children's plates and cutlery, toddler steps, Tv's in all bedrooms, wifi, towels and even some tea, coffee and biscuits!

Beautifully decorated, with fantastic views and only a short walk into the town. Well worth every penny. Thank you Kittiwake Cottage.

“Perfection”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

My wife and I stayed here at Easter back in April with our 3 and 10 year old boys. It really was a fabulous break in every way. The cottage has been refurbished and decorated with great taste throughout - the only downside is that I'm jealous I don't own it and I wish I could nip down there to stay whenever I feel like it! Charlotte was so friendly and helpful throughout - thank you. We are hoping to return in 2015 all being well.

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This delightful cottage embraces you with a warm welcome the moment you open the door. Its character is highlighted by the thoughtful and tasteful interior decoration throughout. All of the rooms including the kitchen are well equipped.
If you have children they will love the roof room which has its own cute staircase and 'look-out' across the bay.
The location is in a perfect position. The best restaurants and cafes are just a short walk away and the lovely beach and harbour are adorned with individual boutiques and shops to brows at your leisure.
We will definite be returning to Kittiwake in the not too distant future.

“Superb cottage, superb views and extremely comfortable - a true home from home.”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Kittiwake cottage is very well maintained throughout, the rooms are lovingly decorated and well laid out, with modern facilities mixed amongst old fashioned comfort. The back courtyard is a little small, but in reality who needs it when you're a stones through from the wonderful town of St Ives. Without doubt the best self catering cottage we have ever rented - we will be back!
