Summers family

Best house we’ve ever stayed in in Cornwall

Fab location, fab food at the beach cafes, fab week! See you next year!.

The Wieliczko Family

Our stay at Westholme was very welcoming

From the wonderful Cornish hamper that was left for us on our arrival then to be shocked at the amazing sea views. The location was perfect for us, only a few minutes into town.

We cannot wait to come again. We come to St Ives on a regular basis for short breaks and I do believe we have found our new weekend retreat.

Such a privilege to stay here and feel like royalty.

Having visited in April this year we just had to return to the fabulous ‘Westholme’. Immaculately presented with stunning views of Porthmeor and The Island Chapel, this gorgeous property is idyllic. Feel sad to be leaving today but look forward to returning again.

Atkinson fammily

Westholme has been refurbished to a very high standard

Bathrooms are luxurious and the kitchen is fantastic with granite work tops.

The highlight of the property is the stunning upstairs living room that runs though to the balcony and frames the amazing view of Porthmeor beach.

We’ve stayed here twice now and we’re going to struggle to get beyond Westholme as it has everything we want from our holiday and more.

Carl Hearnden

Just wanted to say thank you very much for the rent of Westholme for the week

Lovely place in lovely condition. I’ve already recommended “Cherished Cottages” to a number of friends!
