Great cottage in great location. We'd go again and recommend to anyone

  • 5 of 5

We loved our break at Sandy Feet.

We managed to get a space in the Island car park and didn't touch the van all week.

It's a lovely little cottage with everything you need, the kids loved the DVDs and the extra beach toys we borrowed.

The beds are lovely and bedding very luxurious.

It's only a very short stroll to the harbour or Porthgwidden beach. We had breakfast at the Porthgwidden Beach Cafe twice as the food and views are amazing.

We also ate at The Mex (Mexican restaurant) and loved it.

We had a few beers in The Sloop and loved that too. It was great to be car free so it was safe to have a beer without needing to drive or walk far to get home.

We'd happily stay again and would recommend it to anyone.

We also went swimming at the town leisure centre which is a 15-20 minute walk (up quite a lot of steps as it looks over the town). It worth calling ahead to check times of pool openings as we wanted to use the children's pool and it's not always open (busy with lessons). It's a nice pool though.

Owner's Response: Thank you David for such a lovely review! I am so pleased you had a lovely time. We all really enjoy the car free nature of St Ives as well. It's a pain parking but then lovely as there is such little traffic that our road has a lovely play out on the street retro vibe the kids love. Thanks again for such a nice review. Much appreciated!

excellent location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a super 3 night break in the cottage and found it very nicely renovated with all you need. We found the master bed rather uncomfortable and missed having bedside tables [ no space for these!] - we could understand the reasoning for putting the bed into the alcove area but the reality of this for us as more "mature" people was that it felt very awkward getting in and out of bed. The electric heaters were surprisingly efficient at warming the cottage and that was much appreciated in blustery March!

Another great stay.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at the property and we had another great break. The accommodation is in a great location for wandering into the town and also the local beaches. The accommodation is very homely and well catered for in terms of pretty much all you require for a holiday. We hope to visit again! Thank you Vikki.

Lovely house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 3 (although it would be fine for 4 people) and it was perfect for a relaxing week at the end of September. The house had everything we needed and was very well presented. The location was perfect, just a few minutes walk from the beaches and the town. We would definitely stay there again!

Very good location.

  • 4 of 5

Over all we had a lovely stay due to the convienient location for my elderly mother. However there were a couple of niggles. No mirror or hanging space in second bedroom, bedside lamp in bedroom not working no spare bulbs we could find, tap in bathroom sink too powerful for size of sink so we all got wet at one point or another! That said if these niggles were corrected we would have no hesitation in returning. We were so lucky with the October weather which was the icing on the cake.
