"Beautifully appointed house in St. Ives"

I spent a wonderful New Year's holiday with my husband, two children and parents at Gwithians Reach. The house is beautifully and comfortably furnished, the kitchen nicely kitted-out, and there is a lovely view from the conservatory. The house is just a short walk from the centre of St. Ives, but far enough away from the crowds of tourists. It was especially nice on New Year's Eve, when we had a great view of the town's fireworks from the conservatory and back terrace. The owner was a pleasure to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone looking for a holiday let in Cornwall.

"St.Ives at its best"

My wife, two kids, the in laws and myself have all just enjoyed a fantastic week at Gwithians Reach in St.Ives. The property is beautifully decorated and has all the creature comforts you need when having a break, well equipped kitchen, rooms all big enough and with good quality furniture to handle 4 adults and two children. Stunning deck to enjoy breakfast and evening meals whilst enjoying the view.
The location is also great offering off street parking for two cars (small cars I would say), less than five minutes walk to the centre of St.Ives or about ten minutes to the beaches and harbour.
Have stayed here before and enjoyed it that much we decided to come back and will probably rent again for our next trip to Cornwall as its also a great base for getting around.
