About Gordon and Jo

We are the proud owners of Betty's Cottage. After many happy family holidays in St Ives, we fell in love with the area. It captured our hearts and soul. We bought the cottage early 2015 and have since lovingly refurbished it to provide you with all the comforts you would need for a home away from home.

As a small family we enjoy skimming stones and building sandcastles at Porthminster beach, body boarding at Porthmeor beach, fishing,crabbing and seal spotting in the harbour.

We always feel very happy here and invite you to share in our affection for St Ives.

We hope that we have thought of everything to make your stay as perfect as possible.

A charmingly decorated, cosy cottage

  • 4 of 5

St Ives makes a wonderful holiday destination and Betty's Cottage was a lovely base for all of our explorations. We had wet as well as sunny weather but none of our fun was dampened. The parking space provided by Betty's Cottage is ideal - only a few minutes walk away but removing miles of hassle from our stay in a busy town with lots of visitors. We cooked in the well thought through kitchen and warmed up in the modern bathroom after swims in the sea and snacks from the local bakeries. We appreciated the smart TV, fast wifi, wide comfy sofas and designer dining chairs and table. We would recommend a stay here to all and especially those with younger children; our older child used the sofa bed but the bunk bed looked like exciting fun in the second bedroom. A lovely cared for Cottage.

Really well presented cottage in an ideal location.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our two week stay in the cottage, we would have given 5 stars but for the following reasons. On arrival their were two dirty nappies left in the courtyard garden, secondly there was quite a lot of damp in the master bedroom, the walls were quite stained. However, these issues did not affect our stay and the owners of the cottage have thought of everything. It is well decorated and equipped to hold our family of 6. The kids really enjoyed the stay and we would not hesitate to return. Thank you for providing a pleasurable base for our holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The damp unfortunately had been caused by a problem with the roof which has now been resolved. The damp stains will be covered by decorating as soon a s possible. We are glad that you had a good week and enjoyed your stay. Many thanks Gordon and Jo

Return visitor to the lovely St Ives and Betty's Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My second visit to St Ives and the lovely Betty's. Fell in love with this pretty seaside town at first sight and staying at Betty's makes it extra special. As soon as I arrived I felt at home. The cottage is just beautiful and close to the town, harbour and beaches. The parking space is a real bonus. Planning a return trip already.
