“Loved our stay here!!!”
Reviewed 2 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Stayed here in August and had an absolutely brilliant time. The cottage is perfectly located just outside the main hustle and bustle of St Ives, but only about a minutes walk from the nearest shops and restaurants, and about 5 minutes walk from the centre, harbour and beaches. The cottage is very clean and well appointed, and beautifully decked out in a mainly nautical theme throughout. The downstairs living room offered a wonderfully cosy and relaxed escape from the outside world, contrasting with the sizable, light and airy bedrooms. Views from the attic room are fantastic! The minor negative was the lack of parking, but we still used the car regularly and this in no way detracted from our stay and frankly there aren't that many properties this well placed in St Ives that do have parking anyway! (we found Trenwith Car Park to be the best.......5 mins walk.......get the 'Phone&Pay' app!). Charlotte the owner and her husband were also brilliant. Communication with them throughout was excellent with them offering information in the run up to our stay and then making sure that we were OK whilst we were there. When there was a slight problem with the otherwise excellent WiFi, they were quickly on the case in sorting this out. We shall definitely be wanting to come back here!!

“Kittiwake Cottage”
Reviewed 12 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

A lovely cottage in a grey location, just 5 minutes walk from the town and harbour. The rooms at the front of the cottage all have harbour view.
The cottage has everything you need. All of the beds and bedding are of a good standard and very comfortable.
The courtyard is a lovely place to sit for morning coffee or an early evening drink.
Charlotte had provided a few provisions which was a great.
I would definitely stay again.

“Cozy, charming, well provisioned cottage”
Reviewed 20 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Beautifully restored historic cottage a 5 minute walk above train station. We liked that it is out of the main tourist wandering routes, yet so close when you want to be in the thick of it. It is a 5 minute climb out of town, so not ideal location for someone with mobility impairment. Kitchen is small but well designed and stocked with high quality cooking equipment. Full size fridge. Comfortable beds in all three bedrooms. Ample hot water and heat. Nice views from two upper front bedrooms. Cute secluded patio off the dining room. Tasteful antique furnishings with nautical accents that actually feel authentic, rather than the kitsch stuff one sees in so many seaside places. Charlotte was very accommodating and easy to deal with throughout. We will definitely book here again if we return to St. Ives.

We had a wonderful family holiday, complete with dog, staying in this well equipped cosy cottage. Kittiwake Cottage is ideally situated, close to the town centre, with wonderful sea views from the top bedroom. The cottage was extremely clean, well furnished and equipped with everything you could possibly need. All contact with the owner was professional and extremely friendly. We definitely recommend a stay here - a perfect autumn getaway.

Kittiwake is a lovely cottage - great location, well-equipped with everything you need and more, with amazing views, especially from the top bedroom. The owners have thought about all the details, which is much appreciated.
