Best holiday home we've stayed in. Peaceful location, yet so close to St Ives and an easy drive to other beautiful sites. Lovely garden, sometimes we were tempted to say in! Impeccably clean and made to feel welcome by the owner on arrival.

The cottage looked good online but was even nicer in person. It's tucked away down a lane and is really quiet; the cottage itself is a lovely design - really light and with a good feeling of space. The garden is a real delight too. The owners were lovely - very welcoming and happy to help. This is one of the nicest cottages I've ever stayed in, andRead more I'd certainly go back. Hide
