“A perfect location for a beach holiday.”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Brantwood is ideal for enjoying Porthmeor beach with it's soft sand, rockpooling, surfing, cafe and restaurant. The back gate opens immediately opposite the steps down to the beach. This means a day on the beach does not require bags and bags of stuff as you just pop back for a drink, snack or whatever you need.

The upstairs balcony made a wonderful location for watching all the seaside activity with your morning coffee or sunset gin - the sun sets right opposite and can be quite spectacular.

The accommodation was clean, bright, fairly modern and very well equipped. Wi-fi was fast and suitable for iplayer, netflix etc if needed on a rainy morning.
We were two adults and a small child which made for a very spacious stay. Brantwood will sleep a lot more than that but we were happy to spread out in such a great location.

The centre of St. Ives and the harbour are a short and pleasant stroll away through a few very pretty streets and alleyways (I don't think we took the same route twice). It's easy to avoid the more challenging hills for your whole stay if you want or need to.

If hills are your thing, the beach front gives access to the south coast path in both directions so this could make a great base for a walking holiday.

There is no parking included which is a problem in St Ives and means lugging your bags a short way from the roadside. However the owner was helpful in making other arrangements. We were offered a dedicated space at another location but opted for a week's pass valid for any Cornwall long stay car park - but be prepared for a battle to find a space in one.

After a couple of days we decided there was no particular reason to leave St Ives anyway so forgot about the car and enjoyed the rest of our stay.

All in all, highly recommended.

“Second stay - would love to make it an annual event”
Reviewed 26 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This was our family group's second stay at Brantwood. (Grandma, Grandpa, Mum, Dad and twin boy and girl.) If we could manage it, we'd make it an annual event.
The twins love the beach - access is so easy - out the door near the dining table, down a few steps, through a door, across the street [decision point - coffee shop or beach - twins' decision = "beach!"], down the steps to the beach.
Just wandering around St Ives is wonderful (art galleries, Barbara Hepworth sculpture garden, amazing food from fish & chips to top restaurants, artisan bread and baked goods, picturesque streets and laneways).
WiFi is excellent. Lots of entertainment media (BT Box, DVD's - even books for the "unplugged".)
Highly recommended

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This was our 4th stay at this property. A lovely house in a fantastic location with uninterrupted views of Porthmeor beach, brilliant for gaining easy access to the beach for surfing. Very well equipped house with everything you need including two bathrooms and a balcony to take in the stunning views. We hope to return again shortly.

“A well appointed beautifully positioned holiday house, ideal for taking in all that St Ives has to offer.”
Reviewed 23 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

A very warm, comfortable and well equipped sea front cottage with beautiful views over Porthmeor beach from upstairs and downstairs.
We enjoyed the easy walking distance to local St Ives restaurants, pubs, The Tate Gallery and other local artist galleries.

“Amazing View”
Reviewed 3 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

What a lovely few days, good weather and walks. All the comforts and such views, at high tide it was like being on an ocean liner. Winter is the time to visit, as able to absorb the atmosphere of St Ives and Cornwall without the crowds.

Amazing location: "on" the beach, with breathtaking panorama from Clodgy Point to the Island; and three minutes walk to the town centre - on the level!

House immaculate and thoughtfully prepared for our arrival.

Fully equipped and tastefully furnished.
