About Kevin Stevens

We love Cornwall, and we want you to enjoy both it and your holiday to the fullest. That's why we've tried to provide you with everything you might need for a peaceful and relaxing break at Bramble Cottage, and why if there are any questions you might have before or during your stay, we are happy for you to call us so that we can help.

Kevin Stevens purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Kevin Stevens chose St Ives area

We wanted somewhere in the countryside with access to the coastal paths but close to St Ives for its beaches and restaurants. At one point we found it impossible to find a Cottage that would accept 3 dogs, so we decided to buy our own and help other people in the same position to enjoy St Ives and the surrounding area. The garden, with its paths, flower beds and abundant birdlife, is a particular source of pleasure to us.

What makes this cottage unique

Remote and peaceful, yet close enough to the pubs, restaurants and shops of St Ives, Bramble Cottage is the perfect location to enjoy everything Cornwall has to offer. As dog owners ourselves, we know how frustrating it can be trying to find accommodation that is both high quality and pet friendly; it is important to us that all the members of your holiday group (both two and four-legged) can relax and enjoy your time here. The garden is fully enclosed, and we welcome up to 4 dogs( dependant on number of giant breeds )

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Very nice cottage with everything you need for a rest. There are a lot of places to visit and it is a good place to take dogs with a very safe garden. We loved it!" Sheila Collinson

"Just returned from a wonderful stay at Bramble Cottage with our whole family (7 adults in total) plus our two Labradors. They adored the safe and enclosed garden which gave them (and us) plenty of room to run around. The house itself is spacious, comfortable and very well appointed, and gave enough space for us to be all together and enough rooms for individual privacy when required.The garage doubles as a games room, which was very handy when waiting for some of the family to wake up in the morning! The owners were very obliging and welcoming and we cannot recommend this cottage highly enough. Even though we were all over 18, there are plenty of facilities and opportunities for young children. All in all a great holiday which we wish could have lasted a lot longer." Roger & Julie

Great cottage, ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage in a great location. Ideal place for a family holiday. It was very peaceful and we enjoyed watching the owls and other birds in the garden. Close to St Ives where you will find great places to eat and drink. We would recommend The Balnoon and The Mermaid restaurants (booking advised) Taxis to and from St Ives were cheap if you don't want to drive.

Very pleased and would definitely recommend! Many thanks to Kevin and Karen.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful rural location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage in a beautiful rural location, close to St Ives. A great base to explore Cornwall whilst keeping out of the busy tourist areas.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bramble Cottage which was very relaxing and quiet. The cottage itself is wonderfully decorated and very clean, Kevin and Karen obviously have a high attention to detail. The garden is enchanting and well kept. Very dog friendly! A great sized garden for our two to run around. There is also plenty to do when the weather takes a turn for the worse, with games and table tennis supplied.

Kevin and Karen are very approachable and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble for them.

Would highly recommend.

Our 4th stay at this beautiful cottage with a secure garden for our pet Labradoodle. The property is always clean and well maintained, with friendly, helpful customer service from the owners. Great location, costal walks and the nearby town of St. Ives. What more could you want!

Perfect! Spotless, comfortable, very dog friendly

  • 5 of 5

We had the perfect Christmas at Bramble Cottage. The cottage was beautifully decorated for Christmas so we felt very festive and the log fire added that coziness that you want at this time of year. The cottage was spotless, beds were very comfortable and bath tub was amazing!!! Emmy, our dog, felt so at home as Bramble Cottage is fabulously dog friendly inside and out. It was fantastic to have a footpath meters away from us so we could walk her from the cottage. A massive bonus! Karen and Kevin were extremely helpful and generous. We would definitely return.
