Had a lovely week here in July 2017. Cottage is beautiful inside with great facilities and in a perfect location to explore St Ives and the surrounding area. Only downside is that it doesn't have wifi but its a minor issue. We will definitely be returning.
We thought Venwyn Manor (also known as 'Tasteful Carbis Bay Cottage' on some websites) was a great cottage. It's clean, welcoming and spacious - particularly the lounge/dining room which has a high ceiling and plenty of space. The kitchen is very well-equipped and had everything we needed, including basics like tea, instant coffee, milk, sugar and cleaning materials. The owners had also provided some 'treats' - biscuits and fudge - which were a nice touch and were much appreciated. The owners were welcoming and friendly without being too intrusive. The cottage is attached to their house but felt very private. Weather permitting, there are great views over the surrounding fields. There's also ample parking. The location is slightly off the beaten track, a few minutes down a typically narrow Cornish country road, but we didn't find this a problem and really enjoyed the peace and quiet. In fact the cottage made great base for exploring the surrounding area. (You do really need a car - or at the very least a bike - if you wish to explore.) We would definitely recommend this cottage.
