“Heaven on earth we couldn't ask for a better place to stay. Just perfect.”

We have been staying in St Ives for over 50 years and now travel on a coach for 13 hours, but it is worth it when we see the panoramic views and know a lovely cottage awaits. We were delighted to discover this idyllic cottage - my husband , daughter and I have just had our second visit this year.

Rock Cottage is situated in the most picturesque area, The Warren. All the owners of the properties maintain them well so it’s a pleasure to walk along this area. This cottage is in such a prime position. It is very close to the coach and translations, and within easy walking distance to the supermarket and local shops, the very scenic harbour, restaurants and Tate Gallery. St Ives is known for its superb beaches. The spectacular Porthminster beach is a very short walk away and the others, including the fantastic surfing beach (Porthmeor) are also easy accessible.

The cottage is immaculate, very wel- designed. The owner put so much time and thought into the planning. His priority has been to meet the needs of the people staying. We still cannot find anything that we could need that is not available - even umbrellas are supplied, which we hope you won’t need during your stay.

Rock Cottage is very spacious, all on one level except for one step into the open plan lounge. My husband has mobility and balance problems and can safely walk around. He also finds the shower in the double bedroom very safe and suitable for him. This beautiful property is accessible and safe. On arrival there is a welcome pack - tea, coffee, homemade loaf, cake and milk. We think a lot of people would appreciate this, especially after a long journey - well done Tony !

As if the cottage interior is not enough, the lovely paved area at the front of the cottage with table and chairs is ideal if you don't want to go to the beach etc. It is so pleasant and convenient for morning coffee or afternoon tea. During the summer months it is a very sheltered sun trap.

So as you have read, this cottage is first class accommodation. As we always say, 'simply the best in every way’. Sincere thanks Tony, see you in June and September 2016.
