'The property was clean and tidy on arrival. There was everything we needed for our stay. Walking the coastpaths was the highlight of our stay. We had a lovely holiday, the cottage is in a good location to walk down to St Ives, which we did not find a problem. Some may find the walk back a little strenuous!' - Taylor - June 2016
