“Short Christmas Break”
Reviewed 27 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Had a wonderful time at Leo`s cottage. We took a turkey and all the trimmings with us to cook on the day. Despite reading some negative remarks re: the cooker etc our meal was cooked to perfection.
It is ideally situated with fabulous views from the front of the house. There were only the two of us, but would have been ample for up to 7 people.
Steep stairs but the views from the front room and the master bedroom are incredible, we saw 3 seals on the first morning.
The cottage was very comfortable, homely and lovely and warm.
We would definitely recommend and intend to go back again sometime.

“Wonderful stay in a gorgeous cottage in an outstanding location.”
Reviewed 20 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Stayed with extended family in this lovely cottage. There was lots of space so we could spread out in the different living areas of both the lounge and the dining kitchen as well as the reading corner, as we called it.
The double beds were really comfortable with excellent quality bedding and great bathrooms with superb showers.
Views from the master bedroom and lounge are stunning and I loved taking my morning coffee down onto Bamaluz Beach, just a few steps out of the front door.
We having been coming to St Ives for many years now but this has been one of the best locations we have stayed in - so close to everything and yet just away from the hustle and bustle so very peaceful.
We definitely hope to stay again.

“Wonderful base to explore the part of Cornwall”
Reviewed 15 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Second visit to Leo's with wife and or two lurchers. So well placed to walk the South West Coastal Path either way. Porth Kidney Beach a gem and the walk to Zennor is not for the faint hearted but a good pint at the Tinner's and bus back make for a great day out, even the dogs were exhausted when they got back to the cottage.
You cannot beat watching the sea in the morning having a tea in bed or sitting in the lounge with a early evening glass. So easy to walk the few minutes into town, and get some of the daily catch for dinner.
Looking forward to our next trip

“Brilliant location in St Ives”
Reviewed 2 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Stayed for a week in September - second week of St Ives festival - with wife and adult son. Accommodation was very comfortable,light and airy with good decoration, pictures and pottery. The cottage is situated in a quiet and interesting area of the town. Although at the extreme end of town it was easy to get to on foot from the station as we decided against driving from London - we also enjoyed the spectacular views from the train on the way. The area was very convenient for the host of galleries in St Ives, for the good food, sea views, sun and moon rises over the harbour, and the coastal path.

“We loved Leo's Cottage.”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

Leo's Cottage is a fantastic period property in a fantastic location. Overlooking the Dog walking beach. With great views of the Beach and Sea .
We have two 18 yr old boys and 21 yr old girl and two Boarder Terriers.

Loved the character and fell in love with the view ,absolutely perfect place in the old town of St Ives.
We Visit and stay in St Ives atleast once a year and this cottage is a perfect location.
If it had any downsides it would be peak time cost per week was high and Reckon it could do with a better Cooker . We only cooked breakfast sandwiches twice as we ate out all the time. But reckon the cooker would annoy some peeps.Not a big issue though so don't let this put you off in any way .
Thank you Sanjay and if you ever want to sell it to me for a ridiculous price please call me. and if i win the lotto i'll be giving you a call.
All the best Rob,Karen,Danielle,Matthew and Luke
