We stayed at Gwithians reach Sept 2016, and as the house is designed for families we had more than enough space, given there was only two of us. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you would need as a family. We especially liked the large through lounge which incorporated the conservatory. Great outside decking area with spectacular views across the bay. If we return to St Ives we would definitely book again.
Couldn't ask for more from a holiday cottage and our family of four (two children aged 13 and 10) had a lovely week. Clean, nicely decorated and furnished, extremely well equipped, and with beautiful views overlooking the town and the bay. I'd say the owners have gone well beyond what most holiday cottage owners provide .Was having a look through the guest book that's in the cottage, and it's saying something when the only thing I could even find approaching a criticism was "a tea cosy would have been a nice addition" (there is one now!). The parking does need a bit of care to manoeuvre into if you have a big car (we had an SMax), but only because the street is narrow and there are always cars parked opposite - the actual parking space itself is big. Overall, a big thumbs up from us.
We stayed at gwithians reach in June 2016, it was our first holiday away with our 8 month old daughter and my parents, the house was amazing and didn't disappoint, the views of the sea and st Ives from the deck and conservatory were stunning.
There was everything you could want and more and was very clean and tidy.
The parking for two cars was an added bonus as many holiday lets do not have allocated parking, we had two large cars and managed to park them both on the drive at the front.
Would come back again
Whatever the weather you will love this house.
It has been so lovingly and thoughtfully presented that you would never think it was a rental property.
We were lucky to get pretty good weather so we had our breakfast outside every day and looked forward to spending sunny afternoons there after the beach.This is a real find of a place and I doubt there's anything better in St Ives itself that could match it.
Would definitely recommend. We flew Dublin to Newquay and there are also flights from Belfast and Newcastle now.
What's stopping you?!
We have been to St Ives many times over the years but this was our first time at Gwithians Reach. We loved this house! Have already booked to return next year. It was spotlessly clean, beautifully presented and had everything we needed. It really did feel like home from home. We can't wait to go back!
