We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this comfortably furnished house. Great location within easy walking distance of the harbour, beaches and shops. We enjoyed relaxing and taking in the beautiful view across the rooftops and over St Ives Bay. Cant wait to return!

"The most perfect St Ives holiday location !"

Gwithian's Reach is ideally located for a holiday in St Ives. Beaches, cliff walks, pubs, restaurants are all easily within walking distance - in fact we never used the car once all week and the off-street parking was a true bonus! Having renovated numerous properties ourselves, we really appreciated the attention to detail that has been applied here. Just perfect for either a summer or winter break!

"Great location - perfect for a week in St Ives"

Having stayed in a number of rental properties in Cornwall this one does work really well, its clean / tidy / well equipped and the wifi kept older kids happy, it has a real seaside cottage feel. It's patio gets the morning sun and is great for sitting outside and the bbq and tables were well used for outside dining. The rear access makes getting into town very easy and avoids the steep hills and the closeness to Porthmeor beach (10 minute max walk) is perfect for leaving the car on the drive, the parking space in St Ives is a real benefit. Bedrooms all of a good size and beds very comfortable, the seagulls seem to prefer other houses so sleep is easy ! We have had 2 great weeks here over the past 2 years and couldn't ask for more...

"Cosy, well equipped cottage close to Porthmeor Beach"

The cottage was perfect for our family holiday and all of us enjoyed the 2 weeks very much. The garden with the shower is perfect when you come back from the beach. From the conservatory and the patio you have nice sea views.

"Fabulous cottage, extremely well equipped, great location with the added bonus of having parking!"

Having stayed in St Ives quite a few times this is the best yet. Very well equipped and very family friendly.

Such a bonus having car parking spaces. Lovely quiet location with extremely scenic views of the bay from the conservatory.

We're delighted to hear that our home provided you with a relaxing place to stay, we go to every effort to ensure everyone is catered for, including the little people in the family! Sorry to hear that you found the parking a bit tight. We fit two family sized estate cars in which is a bonus in St Ives where parking is at a real premium! We do hope that you will return to Gwithians Reach for future holidays!
