New Year's Eve, the accommodation, the weather, St Ives, everything was brilliant! - Rogers, New Year 2016/2017

Photos of the house were good but when we entered the property we realised just how wonderful it was. Jane, the owner, was very welcoming and ensured us that she was available if we had any questions or problems.

Loved the fact that St Ives was so central to so many attractions in Cornwall. St Agnes Head with Wheal Coates was magical. The Lizard was picturesque. St Micaels Mount a must see. But best of all the beautiful town of St Ives was at our feet. On many nights, when we arrived home after a busy day we had to pop out for one more walk around the harbour.. And then when we finally did finish up for the day, Coast House provided us with luxurious accommodation that met our every need. We have to give a special mention to The Lifeboat Inn in St Ives. 

We nominated it to be our local and ate a few meals and drank quite a few pints of cider there. The staff were very friendly, the food was excellent (especially the Sunday roast) and the view out onto the harbour was wonderful.' - Szczepaniak - May 2016
