“A wonderful holiday in St Ives”
Reviewed April 1, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We have visited St Ives on many occasions with our 2 boys (8 yrs and 6yrs), it is a fabulous location to holiday in. Porth House is by far the nicest location we have stayed in within St Ives and possibly one of the nicest self catering homes we have stayed in worldwide. As soon as you walk in, you know that it is a house to spread out and relax in and going to be a good holiday! The kitchen is a big, communal space to cook and dine in and many a night we sat with a glass of wine beside the open fireplace, toasting our toes. The living room is beautiful too, with a huge sofa to fall into and lots of attention to detail; books to read, beautiful artwork and lovely cushions and throws to make the house feel like home. Unusually, upstairs is as big as downstairs with 4 good sized bedrooms a designer bathroom and ensuite. Again, the attention to detail is stunning with quality beds, bedding and pillows. I couldn't recommend the house enough and we have booked to return next year, not something we usually do. The weather the past week was a bit hit and miss but it didn't bother us a jot because the house was so welcoming and relaxing for 3 adults and 2 children. Thank you to Alison for her prompt responses to all emails too, she was a pleasure to deal with. Already counting the days until we visit again........

“property exceeded expectations”
Reviewed September 22, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Pot House is ideally located for accessing all the amenities of St Ives on foot. It is full of character, beautifully decorated and furnished and comprehensively equipped. If we visit St Ives again, we would not wish to stay anywhere else.
