Fabulous house and location
We have just returned from a fabulous holiday at Birdsong. The holiday was to celebrate my husband's birthday and we were three generations. The house is very spacious, well equipped and was clean and welcoming. It is a short walk to a lovely clean beach and the grandchildren loved it there. The pool table and football game provided lots of entertainment and competition. I would recommend a stay at Birdsong to everyone and hope to stay there again before too long. Melanie provided all the information needed before our visit and my deposit was returned very promptly. A beautiful house and I can't find fault with it.
A wonderfully theraputic break
Wonderful property- breathtaking views, easy access to the coastal path, beach and shops. My mobility was poor on arrival but improved with every day we stayed in this amazing place. If I didn't feel good I could even gaze at the view from bed!
Gorgeous home with a spectacular view of the sea
We stayed at Birdsong for three nights in March and it was perfect. It's a large house that accommodates big groups, so we never felt on top of each other. It has everything you could possibly need; multiple bathroom facilities, a big kitchen and living room and a pool/football table to keep us occupied after a long walk or while waiting for the rain to clear. We immediately felt at home. Best of all was the view of the sea which is breathtaking and totally unexpected.
The house is a short walk to the white sandy beach and blue sea. Definitely one of the UK's hidden gems. St.Ives is also a lovely little place and I especially enjoyed my trip to the Barbara Hepworth museum and sculpture gardens - not to be missed if you are a fan of her work or sculptures generally!
I hope to visit again very soon!
A wonderful family Easter week
we had a fabulous family week at Birdsong. The pool table was in regular use and the location and wider facilities were greatly enjoyed. More than lived up to our expectations thank you!
A great family holiday home
This was our second holiday at Birdsong. We had a very good week’s holiday in May 2015 with our son daughter, her husband and two young grandchildren.
The property was exactly as described and booking, payment, etc was straightforward. We found the house clean and well maintained.
The layout of the house is excellent for a large group with all of the facilities you need for cooking, etc and the views are superb. Everyone enjoyed the pool, table tennis and table football.
We love the location of the house with close proximity to St Ives, the restaurants, bars and the beaches.
Negatives are few but most of us all felt that the bed mattresses and pillows were in need of replacement as they did not give very good support.
Fortunately the weather was kind and we were able to go to the Porthminster beach most days. I can recommend the bacon baps from the cafe on the beach.
We decided to go out to one of the better restaurants for dinner but didn’t reserve a table as it was early in the season. All of the restaurants were fully booked so we ate at the Curry Garden where we had an excellent but not cheap meal. In future I would definitely reserve a table in advance whatever time of the year.
I would certainly recommend Birdsong.
Birdsong, St Ives
My girlfriend and I stayed at Birdsong for a long weekend break. We left London looking for some rest and relaxation. Birdsong was perfect. It is a large detached house with breathtaking views. Even though it was February we lay in the Cornish sunshine drinking coffee, ate at the multitude of fantastic restaurants in St. Ives and went for long hikes over beaches and around headlands. On Sunday morning we woke up to a stunning sunrise that we could watch without even needing to get out of bed. It was the perfect mini break, I could never get bored of that view. Will bring our friends and family with us next time. Thank you for letting us share your family home.
We are a 10 minute walk from St Ives centre where you can find the Tate St Ives, Hepworth Gallery, Surf School and the beautiful beaches. Follow us on Twitter @birdsongstives or Instagram @stivesbayholidays for more. and check out website by googling birdsongstives.co.uk
