    A quiet spot but a 15 minute walk to the beach (or the pub). The house was spotlessly clean, well appointed throughout. The living areas are airy with plenty of space. The view from the lounge is amazing. Very comfortable furnishings, big comfy beds too. We enjoyed a wonderful stay at St Ives Cottage.

    A beautiful house with the most stunning views of Carbis Bay. The house is very well set out for a large family and we’d definitely go back.
