“Beautiful cottage in pole position”

Let me start off by saying that our son Ben (10 yrs) rated the week in August as his second best holiday of all time. Leo's cottage is located in a perfect spot overlooking the nicest little bay we came across - as an added bonus it's about 30 seconds from the main St. Ives drag. The cottage is charming with everything you'd expect (even proper wine glasses which was a pleasant surprise). The master bedroom has a view to die for with a lovely shower. The rest of the cottage is very functional and comfy. The stairs are quite narrow and steep so you'd have to keep an eye out for small children. You have to remember that this is a cottage on the seaside and not a five star luxury hotel and if you bear that in mind you will love this place - all 5 of us did.

All in all we had a wonderful time and I'd give it an 8.5 out of 10.

“Gorgeous, relaxing, didn't want to leave.”

Leos Cottage is so nice, we really did not want to leave. Having never taken our dog away before we were a little worried about leaving dog hairs and muddy paw prints. Even though we were on holiday we cleaned as we went along! The wooden floors are fantastic for brushing up after a sandy dog. The cottage it self has every thing you could want, well equiped, comfy, stylish and very clean. The beds are sooooooo comfy and we had the best sleep in such a long time. Would really love to go back along with the dog! We actually left a lot of dog treats behind by mistake but we weren't too bothered as hoped the next doggie on holiday would enjoy them! Sitting in the lovely bay window is such a treat and watching the seals. The carpark is just around the corner, this cottage has it all, location, location, location!!!!!!!!
