Less than 10 minutes to beach and shop. Truro less than 30 mins away by car. Very close to Prima Bakery and it's delicious pasties.
Great cottage.Very private,quiet and peaceful.Good location for visiting different parts of Cornwall.Clean and modern.Just as pictures show.
Ivy Chimney was for us a perfect holiday house in a great location. Most of the big attractions are within a 40 minute drive and you can easily hit North and South coast in the same day if you like. All rooms are large and comfortable with a super bathroom with large walk in shower. The upstairs terrace was great and we breakfasted and dined there whenever the weather allowed which luckily for us was most days. Would have liked a bigger table for the balcony to eat at, that's the only very minor improvement I would make. Just down the road is a fantastic farm shop, try the steaks they were great and the bakery 1 mile away does the best Cornish pasties we found. Fantastic place for touring Cornwall, beach, Southwest path or whatever you fancy. We even had a day trip to the Scilly isles.
we have stayed in many cottages over the years on average 3 a year, this was the best one ever, and will re book .Location in beautiful settings. the cottage itself was perfect would not change a thing, very modern and bright.
Just spent a week at this Cottage, cannot recommend highly enough, comfortable, clean, relaxing, beautiful accommodation with perfect scenery of the countryside and as stated glimpses of the sea... absolutely perfect getaway break. Ideally located not far from the A30 which provides access to so many of the quaint towns, St. Ives being one of our favourites, breathtaking. To come back here of an evening was heavenly to unwind. We will be returning without a doubt. The owners gave us complete privacy and were by no means intrusive.. A fantastic base a little gem.
Excellent high spec cottage situated 2 miles from A30 & centrally accessible to all locations. Hosts are pet friendly & gave us a very warm welcome but also left us to have our privacy. Superb views around & lovely sun-trap courtyard to relax in together with paddock to exercise dog if required. Will recommend to all our family & friends, will definitely visit again.
The pictures really don't do justice to this lovely property. The outside deck going off from the first floor lounge was the highlight for us and the view from across the paddock to the countryside, which you can also see from the lounge. The owners were very respectful of our privacy, only talking to us when we approached them, but then very friendly and helpful. There are horses in the paddock and chickens as well, safely kept at bay of course, but lovely to see. The bed is comfortable and the en suite brilliant with a large walk in shower and hot water whenever we needed it. The heating worked very well keeping us warm when it got a bit chilly. Just 10 minutes drive away towards the north coast is St Agnes where we ate in an excellent restaurant. The further reaches of Cornwall (St Ives, Marazion, Truro, Newquay) are 30 minutes or less away making this ideally placed for a tour of the county and other lovely restaurants. The cottage was perfectly clean, with a very modern kitchen (be aware no washing machine, but for a week that was fine for us). The lounge furniture is comfortable and the tv has loads of channels. Our deposit was returned within a week. I can't think what else you would want!
