We recently stayed at Gonwin Manor cottages in Rose Cottage.
The cottage has lots of lovely gadgets such as fantastic kitchen equipment and jacuzzi bath. The IPod link that allows music to be played in any room was great. The cream tea and wine and chocs were a nice touch.
We were disppointed though by the noise that carried through from above. It didn't explain on the website that there would be an apartment above the cottage. We were woken early every day and kept up late several nights by the people above walking about, and things like the washing machine/dishwasher on. We were quite surprised how much noise carried. This obviously wasn't their fault but meant we never really had a lie in, which we were looking foward to. If we had known this, I would have chosen a smaller cottage which didn't have anyone above.
The lake and decking area is lovely and the views amazing. We were surprised people didn't seem to be there more often.
Is in a good location for St Ives and the rest of south of Cornwall. We were a bit disappointed by St Ives, which wasn't quite a nice as we expected. Highly recommend the Porthminster Beach Cafe and a trip to Falmouth.
Overall, it was a lovely place but would not recommend that particular cottage if you do not want to be risked being disturbed from overhead.
