About Alison Battles

Hello – we are Ali and Kieran Battles. We live in Bristol with twins, Eleanor and Isaac.

It has always been our dream to own a holiday home in Cornwall and we are finally doing it! We hope you enjoy staying here as much as we fell in love with No.8 the first time we visited. We want you to feel at home and make the most of your holiday – if there’s anything you think we could do better or something you think would help make your holiday even more enjoyable then please let us know.

Alison Battles purchased this house in 2011

What makes this house unique

Beautiful views, a lovely light and airy home with stylish furnishings, lots of art, books, toys and games - a real home from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed here for a week in June with our two children (four and one). What a delightful place. The house is so stylish and the best equipped self catering to which I've been. Lots of toys for children and great facilities. Ali was a pleasure to deal with, going above and beyond to help us. St Ives was beautiful (granted it was out of high season) and kids loved the beach which was a short distance away (down a hill but everywhere in St Ives is up or down a hill). Highly recommend.
