We will definitely be booking again. Our dog loved the other dogs it was a picture to see them all. Many thanks.
The cottage (Lavender) was just spot on. Everything you could possibly need from a self catering holiday was there. A real home from home. The little private gardens are fabulous and if only the weather had been better we would have used the BBQ! Our puppy Baxter loved the freedom and his new friends Mabel, George and Chester. We would recommend the Fire House in St Ives, the Badgers Inn in Lelant and the Lamb and Flag in Hayle all dog friendly and lovely food. Will return and will certainly be recommending to our family and friends. Thank you Jill and Steve for all the little touches that make this holiday so special.
From the moment you arrive until the day you leave, this place sweeps you off your feet. We stopped at Lavender cottage and everything you may need is there, I have never seen such a well equipped kitchen! The attention to detail is second to none, these cottages really do provide a high quality luxury break. I am not normally one for waking up to early on a holiday but in the location you are, you just cant help but get up before sunrise and enjoy the morning dawn. There really is nothing you can pull up on Gonwin Manor they have done a fantastic job
We like to travel a lot and this is the only place we have ever stayed more than once and I can honestly see us returning every year to Gonwin because we absolutely love it! Why? Well from the minute you arrive you will fall in love with this place, the cottages are beautiful and really well appointed. We love that we can bring our dog here (Charley our border terrier) who is always warmly greated by George the spaniel with his ball and interesting hair cut! The owners are lovely and nothing is too much trouble. The grounds are beautifully kept and the view down to Porthkidney Sands is one of THE best in the world. From the property you can exit a private gate directly onto the coastal path which brings you directly into St Ives after a pleasant 40 min stroll. We have stayed in both Rose and Lavender and both are beautifully decorated. Thank you Gonwin for two wonderful holidays and see you for many more!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Lavender Cottage and think your set up there and the location is lovely. We will certainly come back. It is so nice to have the combination of a bit of luxury with the flexibility of being able to bring the dog – who thoroughly enjoyed the beach.
