if you want your car parked outside this is not the place for you, BUT if you want a lovely homely cottage with everything in walking distance, pubs,restaurants,the sea,harbour, walks,local shops then look no further.(the car park is just a couple of minutes and reasonable 24hr rate) . the kitchen is well equipped, pots pans glasses plates utensils, its warm cosy and the bath / shower is wonderful after a long hike or day shopping.we had a lovely 3 night stay at the end of march,

Thank you for taking time to comment here on Trip Advisor. As you noticed parking anywhere is St Ives can be a challenge due to the quaint narrow streets but it is so handy to be able to get so close to the property to drop your luggage off before parking the car for the duration of your stay in one of the many carparks. Once the car is parked you don't need it again until home time as there is so much to do in St Ives. Hope we can accommodate you again soon. Best wishes

“We love it here”
Reviewed 1 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We do not have a single negative comment about 3 Wesley Flats. It is homely, well decorated, comfortable, warm and cosy with comfortable bed and very nice facilities throughout.

We cooked gourmet meals in the kitchen form steak to curry to roast dinner. The kitchen is perfect with everything you need to cook.

The bathroom is perfect with a lovely bath, lovely shower and cosy feel.

The lounge area is perfect with lovely sofa, TV, cute dining table and chairs and all the DVDs you might need for a rainy day, but a rainy is just as good as a sunny day in St Ives with loads to do and see for anyone.

The heating system works just like at home. We were always warm without ever touching the controls.

We have been to St Ives three times, twice we have stayed here. We will not consider staying anywhere else.

If you want to see the real St Ives. Stay here. Everything is 2 minutes away form you.

Parking is easy. There is a public car park 240 paces away (or 2 minutes drive up the road) on Park Avenue. £6.50 a day. Cash or phone card payment, easy. Downhill back to Wesley Flats (3 mins walk), uphill back to the car (5 minutes walk).

We will be back.

Cliff and Lizzie.

“Charming little home away from home!”
Reviewed 27 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This little flat is a lovely, cheerful base for exploring Cornwall and it's in the very centre of St behind the High St but hidden away from traffic so its quiet. Getting into town is a 2 minute walk and St Ives' three main beaches and shopping streets are close by.

The flat itself is on two levels with a neat little kitchen and a bathroom with a bath, a decent shower and a heated towel rail. The flat has a new boiler and quiet gas central heating, a TV, a comfy sofa and a microwave. In general it's an understated, homely (rugs! lamps!), well looked after little place. The bed is a 5 ft double and comfortable and the bedroom has a window at each end so is lovely and light and is reached by a small spiral staircase.

This is not for you if you want a boutique finish but it's lovely and great value for money. We've been back once and plan to get back there again as soon as we can!

...Enjoy!

“Great base for a lovely winter get away”
Reviewed 26 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

This was the perfect base for a wet and windy winter break in St Ives. Very cosy and warm after a day of walking in the rain.

The cottage is in a great location with just a short walk to the harbour and although there in no parking there is a car park just a minute away. We used that to get our stuff in and out then I found it easy to park up on the street.

The cottage had a very 'cute' look and is very reasonably priced, much cheaper than alternatives of similar quality. We found it to be a great size for 2 but you wouldn't want to be sharing between 4 for too long.

We didn't have any problems finding the property as others have but then we did allow our common sense to guide us!!

We look forward to visiting again soon

“Cute, clean and perfect for a stay in St. Ives!”
Reviewed 26 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Me and my boyfriend spent Valentines weekend in the flat, and although it was during the awful floods and torrential rain we had a lovely time in St. Ives.
The flat itself is very cute and cosy, but there was plenty of room! The bath was lovely and deep with a brilliant shower; central heating and the little electric fire made the room very warm which we needed after a walk in the rain. The TV signal was often affected by the tides (according to the guest book) but we watched DVDs and read so was fine. Very romantic spiral staircase and comfy double bed upstairs, lots of storage space...good little kitchen with cooker, microwave, everything you would need!
It is in a perfect location; only a few minutes walk from the shops, beach, cinema and restaurants...not sure if it would be the same during the summer months, but it was very quiet and peaceful.
Close carpark at the top of the hill which was only £2 a day at this time of year.
All communication with the owners was fast and helpful.
Would recommend to all and will be going back ourselves, hopefully during better weather to get some sunshine!
A lovely holiday home...thankyou for our stay x

“Enjoyable 3 night break”
Reviewed 28 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

My husband and I booked the property through a recommendation from a work colleague.
We were given a good price for the 3 nights as out of season.
Had difficulty finding the flat so had to resort to phoning for directions. The flat was tucked away down an alley with lots of wheelie bins. There is no parking at this property but we found two council car parks a short walk away for £2 for 24hrs parking.
After unloading the car and parking up, we went for a walk to check the area - only 5 mins into the town and the same for the nearest Co-op supermarket to stock up on provisions.
Well equipped kitchen and perfectly fine to make a sandwich or breakfast.
Two seater settee in the living area with a small tv/dvd player in the corner. There is a small table and 2 chairs near the window for eating at.
The bedroom is reached by a winding staircase quite narrow and not at all suitable for anyone with walking difficulties. Good sized bedroom upstairs and plenty of cupboards.
The heating played up a bit whilst we were there and the bedroom was quite cold especially late afternoon/early evening - we did set it to constant but to no avail however the lower floor was very warm and had the added bonus of an electric fire.
Lovely deep bath especially welcome after a day walking the coastal route.
There is a small seating area outside adjacent to the stable door but didnt use as not good weather but probably wouldnt do in the warmer months as overlooked by all the houses backing onto the flats.
Both my husband and I were extremely uncomfortable sleeping as the mattress is very hard and both woke up each morning with lower back pain and stiff necks.
Good selection of shops in town and restaurants/pubs/tea shops - a fair proportion of the shops are closed for winter re-opening mid Feb or late March but still a good choice for a meal/drink.
We particularly liked the location of the flats to the harbour and town and the price was good. Its good if you just want to use as a base /sleep but personally a little too cramped for my husband and I.

Thank you for taking time to share your experience, We are really sorry to hear that you had such an awful time in our little home and disappointed that you did not find the property with ease and suffered with the bed. We had been there ourselves the week before to check the property for the start of the season and all was in good working order when we left, so I can only apologise now about the heating, had you called us about the heating problem we would have sent someone to investigate for you, or may have been able to advise over the phone, we are sorry we couldn’t do more for you.
We are pleased that you felt it was a good price, we do aim to please, your colleague who recommended our little home is a regular of ours now and has been renting from us for Winter breaks for 6 years now and enjoys the tranquillity out of season breaks offer. We hope you get a more pleasing break soon. Best intentions always Julianne
