“luxury all the way ...”
Reviewed 25 August 2007

we stayed in Bluebell cottage at the beginning of August and loved it. Everything is 5* quality, comfy beds, plasma TVs in all rooms so no kids arguing which channel they want on! Don't forget your iPod as you can plug it into the cottage wide hi fi system. The kids fell in love with the owners two spaniels, George and Jessie (I've never spaniels so placid, maybe it's the west country air?). Beautiful walks on the doorstep, and only 10 mins walk to Carbis Bay beach - pure white sand and turquoise blue water - paradise.

Nothing's too much trouble for Sharon and her mum, we really appreciated the little touches, like the bottle of wine and the clotted cream that greeted us on arrival, the kids even had some treats to feed the dogs.

Sorry we had to leave, we'll be back. Thanks.

We recently stayed at Gonwin Manor cottages in Rose Cottage.

The cottage has lots of lovely gadgets such as fantastic kitchen equipment and jacuzzi bath. The IPod link that allows music to be played in any room was great. The cream tea and wine and chocs were a nice touch.

We were disppointed though by the noise that carried through from above. It didn't explain on the website that there would be an apartment above the cottage. We were woken early every day and kept up late several nights by the people above walking about, and things like the washing machine/dishwasher on. We were quite surprised how much noise carried. This obviously wasn't their fault but meant we never really had a lie in, which we were looking foward to. If we had known this, I would have chosen a smaller cottage which didn't have anyone above.

The lake and decking area is lovely and the views amazing. We were surprised people didn't seem to be there more often.

Is in a good location for St Ives and the rest of south of Cornwall. We were a bit disappointed by St Ives, which wasn't quite a nice as we expected. Highly recommend the Porthminster Beach Cafe and a trip to Falmouth.

Overall, it was a lovely place but would not recommend that particular cottage if you do not want to be risked being disturbed from overhead.

We have just come back from Gonwin Manor and I can't say enough good things about it. We stayed in Rose cottage and I have to say it was better than home. We had a lovely 4 poster bed which was heaven. Everything you need or want is in the kitchen - All Dualit! The only thing we had to do was turn up with some food. We were greeted with a lovely cream tea and a bottle of wine and chocolates for later. The owners and their family are lovely and willing to help with anything. Good location - just a short drive into St Ives. Lovely decking area down by the pond where you can have a BBQ. A path down to a stunning beach. We couldn't have asked for more - defo recommend this place to anyone. BTW kids are very welcome and cots etc are provided!
