A beautiful comfortable and well equipped cottage. One of the cosiest we have ever stayed in.

Great location, close to everything you and yet far enough away from the crowds! Thank you Cherished Cottages.


Our dog has never been so relaxed in any other place, and we have stayed at many in St Ives 🙂

We arrived on the same day as storm Brian, the cottage was warm and inviting and a great place to stay. Right near the beach.

45 Back Road West – Exactly what it says on the tin!!!

Lovely to come in to such a welcoming and well appointed cottage with our dog. Cherished is an understatement : we were Cherished as valued customers, the cottage is Cherished and well designed too. The local goody bag was a delight. Thank you for making our stay so special.
