“Fabulous location and Spa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2012

My wife and I along with our three and a half month old baby girl had a great experience at Gonwin. The cottages are beautuful, fully kitted out and the location stunning. The Spa onsite, Aqua Spa is excellent, we had 3 treatments there and were hugely impressed by the quality of the treatments and value, the staff there were very friendly. Massively recommend it. The owner Sharon is extremely nice, she went out of her way to ensure we had a wonderful first holiday with our baby girl. Looking forward to coming back.

We have just returned from another week at Gonwin manor cotages and as usual the service and accomadation is outstanding. To top it all off there is now a new spa on site-fantastic. I had 2 amazing massages and my daughter had a gel manicure. My husband and the family played golf with Steve which was great fun. Our dog enjoyed the company of the resident dogs. All in all everyone was happy-great week. Booked to return in Easter!

Room Tip: All excellent.

As soon as you arrive at Gonwin Manor, it is clear that alot of effort has been made to ensure your stay is a comfortable one. From the initial greeting by the owners to the facilities in the cottage itself. The Cornish cream tea, wine, chocolates and flowers on arrival are a lovely touch. Heather Cottage is provided with a whole range of accessories, including kitchen accessories, a jacuzzi bath, TVs in the living rooms and the bedrooms and an integrated ipod player with speakers throughout the cottage.
My only criticism is that because technology moves on so fast, even accessories that are state of the art at the time of manufacture, soon become dated. So for instance, the ipod player was unable to recharge my ipod touch. Not a problem, because we had brought our own ipod player, but I couldn't help but think that this was a bit unfortunate.
However, the overall quality of the fittings was excellent as is the location of Gonwin Manor itself. The area is close to St Ives and both the North Cornish Coast and the South Cornish Coast. There are plenty of Pubs, cafes, shops and restaurants near by and some great walking country by the sea.

Gonwin Manor is truly amazing! If you are reading this you are already thinking of visiting Gonwin Manor, my advice is book it now! From the moment you arrive until the day you leave, this place sweeps you off your feet. We stopped at Lavender cottage and everything you may need is there, I have never seen such a well equipped kitchen! The attention to detail is second to none, these cottages really do provide a high quality luxury break. I am not normally one for waking up to early on a holiday but in the location you are, you just cant help but get up before sunrise and enjoy the morning dawn even my fiencee managed it a couple of the mornings. We did plan on getting a taxi in to St Ives on a few evenings but felt that the cottage was that nice and cosy there was really no need to leave.
There really is nothing you can pull up on Gonwin Manor they have done a fantastic job and we can not wait to go back again, sooner rather than later hopefully! Cant wait to see George, Mabel & Chester as well (owners dogs) so friendly with us and our dog, only problem was my fiencee wanted to take them all home with us so that alone means we must go back!

I have just come back from a week at Gonwin Manor and it never disappoints. This is the third year I have been and each time we have stayed in a different cottage, they are all finished to a very high standard and you won't be disappointed. The welcome scones on arrival are worth the stay alone!!!

We arrived to a very warm welcome
a bottle of wine ,chocolates and a cream tea. The cottage was a very high standard, the girls bedroom was nice to apart from years of dust + ear buds which i believe someone also comented on. well its not there now as i hovered it off. The location is wonderful. The only problem with the cottage we were in had 2 very hyper boys that ran up and down the hall way upstairs every morning from 6 am ! Nice on your holiday, Not!!
I told the owner on leaving and was told they had put layered carpet and flooring down to deden the noise. Also the people upstairs had been back 10 times ,so didn't. want to upset them. I would go back but to a different cottage.

Had a fantastic week. Will certainly return. Only small niggle would be wanting to store something above the wardrobe and finding it to be incredibly dusty with a few discarded cotton buds - i guess form a previous guest!
