Gonwin Manor Cottages
Reviewed 22 July 2013

We stayed for a week 12-19 July in the Rose cottage. The location is fabulous, the cottages have everything you could possibly need so you can have a home away from home. The owners are so helpful and the service is second to none, nothing is too much bother for them. Gonwin manor really exceeded all our expectation and we will certainly be returning.
The daily visits from the owners dogs George, Mabel and Chester made us chuckle every night, Steve and Gill thank you for a wonderful week!!!

We stayed for a week Friday 28th June - Friday 5th July. What a relaxing week in a smashing place!
The cottage (Lavender) was just spot on. Everything you could possibly need from a self catering holiday was there. A real home from home.
The little private gardens are fabulous and if only the weather had been better we would have used the BBQ!
Our puppy Baxter loved the freedom and his new friends Mabel, George and Chester.
We would recommend the Fire House in St Ives, the Badgers Inn in Lelant and the Lamb and Flag in Hayley all dog friendly and lovely food.
Will return and will certainly be recommending to our family and friends.
Thank you Jill and Steve for all the little touches that make this holiday so special.

To say that Gonwin Manor exceeded my expectations is an understatement.
Steve and Jill who manage the property could not have been more welcoming or more dog friendly as they have three dogs of their own. The grounds are beautifully kept with areas designated for doggy business! The property goes straight on to the coast path, over Porthkidney Sands which allows dogs on the beach all day, all year.
The property itself is beautifully equipped with Dualit and Neff appliances in the kitchen and a jacuzzi bath - perfect after those long coastal walks.
The personal touches really made it. A welcoming cornish cream tea with chocolates made locally and a bottle of wine, a fire that had been laid, a beautiful vase of roses, lovely linen, robes and towels, wifi...I could go on...just made it feel like a home from home.
I'll be back!

Stayed here again recently as we had had such an amazing experience in February 2012.
It was perfection last year and yet again this year.
I cannot praise Gill and Steve and Michael and Sharon enough. They know what they are doing and do it brilliantly, nothing is too much trouble.
This is the perfect site to explore all of west Cornwall.

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.
