We have had a wonderful time in St Ives. We didn’t use our car once as there was so much to see and do locally. First visit to Cornwall but i’m sure it won’t be our last!

Another Wonderful Holiday!

Wonderful stay at Red Sails – will certainly be back – Big Thanks! 🙂

The Scotts - New Year 2018

Red Sails is a perfect cottage for a small family/2 couples.

The location is spot on; close to the harbour, Porthmeor and Porthwidden beaches and the main shops, bars and restaurants but quiet, on a pedestrianised street. The cottage was immaculate on arrival and very well equipped. We will definitely return. A 5* property.

Ruth and family

Really beautiful traditional cottage, but with modern facilities!

Tastefully decorated and brilliantly situated near harbour, restaurants, bars etc. Used the house to attend a wedding, quiet location & great service would highly recommend.
