Absolutely beautiful apartment. Very well equipped, all the equipment was very high spec. The beds were very comfortable. The location is fantastic for St Ives, Porthminster beach was 10 min walk. Would stay again at a heartbeat. Fabulous.
Mr Holloway July 2022
Fabulous views and location. Apartment is to a very high standard. Nice large wide patio and well stocked kitchen.
Housekeeping welcomed us in which was very helpful. Bottle of wine left in apartment too!
We recommend you visit!

Beautiful apartment in a great location, fantastic views. High spec accommodation but unfortunately intermittent WiFi.
Mr Lee April 2022
Although the property was exceptionally clean and the housekeeper is first class, the walls between this apartment and the next one (from the master bedroom perspective) are paper thin and we could hear absolutely everything that was said by our neighbours. The neighbours had three small children who got up around 6am every day and woke us up. We complained to Classic Cottages but this did not seem to result in any change and no-one followed up with us after we were told that Classic would speak to the neighbours. This is a real shame as the apartment is in such an excellent location - the build quality simply isn't good enough and we returned home more tired than when we set off on holiday. To get around the problem we had to resort to sleeping on the floor of the single bedroom. All in all this was a very poor experience for a large amount of money and we didn't feel that Classic cared about that in any way.

We are really sorry that you did not enjoy your experience at Windjammer-Morwentsow 2. We can assure you that the apartment building is in line with the building regulations at the time of construction, but we are pleased that you enjoyed the location. We have very little control over the day-to-day noise of other members of the public staying in the other apartments and we are sorry that you were disrupted. We hope to welcome you another Classic Cottage in the future. Sarah, Customer Support

Spotlessly clean, well furnished, spacious apartment. Great attention to detail. Warm welcome from Debbie, the helpful, friendly housekeeper Lovely welcome tray on arrival plus milk and a bottle of wine in the fridge. Wonderful views over Porthminster Beach and the ocean beyond (including a view of Godrevy Lighthouse from both bedrooms, lounge, and the terrace. Fabulous private terrace garden area with access to walk down to the gate. Out of the gate is a walking route down to the fabulous Porthminster beach.
Mrs Mills April 2019
I felt that this apartment did not quite reach the high standards I had come to expect from Classic Cottages. Firstly the arrival details were not clear enough for me. There are two main entrances which didn't appear to have numbers on and our apartment was hidden behind a second unmarked door which looked like a store cupboard. After a six hour drive this was too much and resulted in me and my mum standing outside in the pouring rain scratching our heads.
On entering the apartment we were obviously blown away by the uninterrupted sea view, the layout was thoughtfully designed and it was perfectly clean.
Just a few disappointments though, when I opened the patio door in the main bedroom the door handle fell off in my hand. I chose the main bedroom but because of the thin walls I had to swap rooms. I am a light sleeper however even my mum (who is slightly deaf) was still disturbed by the amount of sound bleed through. The whole apartment suffered from the same problem and it would most certainly put me off staying over the busier months. Lastly my room was a bit disappointing; I had a single bed with a metal bed frame. The Hypnos mattress was amazing but the frame creaked every time I moved so I woke up a lot. I also did not have a lamp or mirror in my room which meant me using the torch on my phone as a bedside lamp and knocking on my mums door every time I wanted to blow dry my hair.
Overall a pleasant stay and the short walk to Porthminster beach was a real early morning treat, however for money it just didn't feel like the luxury apartment I was expecting.

We were so sorry that this wasn't quite as you were expecting. We'll review the arrival details to make sure they're clear - we know that guests have sometimes had a long journey and we want to make arrival as easy as possible. We've arranged for the door handle and bed frame to be addressed and a mirror and lamp to be added to the single bedroom - thanks for the great suggestions. We're so sorry to hear that you found the apartment a little noisy - this hasn't been reported to date so we'll certainly monitor this and really appreciate you letting us know. It's great to hear that you enjoyed your stay overall - the views certainly are spectacular and what better way to start your day than with an early morning stroll to the beach!

Mrs Rowbottom November 2018
Well equipped appartment with a wonderful view over St Ives.
Mr O'Regan October 2018
The best self catering accommodation we have ever had, cannot recommend highly enough
Ms Patnick June 2018
Great for a small family with a baby. So close to the beach and easy pram access both out the front and back of flat. Easy walk into St Ives.
Housekeeper Debbie was excellent. The whole flat was immaculate and well equipped.
Just be aware it’s a warm flat with no aircon and you can’t leave the windows open at night because it’s on street level.
Mr Wellings April 2018
Wonderful location, great views to St. Ives and Godrevy. Beautiful sea view to wake up to. Well equipped apartment with ample space. Just right for what we wanted. Apartment close proximity other towns!!
Mrs Stenning October 2017
Great from the moment we arrived. Housekeeper very helpful and friendly. Great welcome pack. Spotlessly clean. Loved the location, we could avoid driving into busy St Ives, while being only a short stroll away. Loved it
Mr Harris August 2017
I booked the Windjammer as a surprise for my wife's birthday and we both loved it. Beautifully finished and decorated to a high standard, we felt very spoilt! A great location with an amazing view, only a 10 minute walk into St Ives. Debbie the housekeeper was extremely helpful and went out of her way to ensure my wife had a great welcome at the apartment! Truly a great stay which gave us amazing memories!

Windjammer was breathtaking to walk into and such a joy to stay in for our week in Cornwall. It was furnished and designed beautifully and the views were fabulous -- from every room. The housekeeper was so helpful and the parking convenient and spacious. Fresh flowers, cookies and tea upon arrival were lovely. We recommend it highly.

Great place. We loved it!
Mr Head April 2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Windjammer and would highly recommend it. The apartment is extremely clean and comfortable with lots of added extras. The views from the living room and bedrooms are amazing. The location of the apartments is very good. Just a short walk to St Ives or in the opposite direction to the beautiful Carbis Bay beach.
Finally we must mention the housekeeper Debbie, who did everything to make our stay at Windjammer such a happy and relaxing one. Thank You.
Mr Bottomley October 2015
Excellent location outside of the town with great views. Spotlessly clean, well furnished, stylish and very comfortable. Fully equipped with everything one needs. High quality white towels, bedlinens and a very comfortable bed - offering great sleeps and waking to wonderful sea views. We had a really relaxing, peaceful holiday (early October) and didn't want leave. We will return. A great find and value for your pound.
Mrs Walker July 2015
The perfect place to explore lovely Cornwall!
Mr Johnson June 2015
Windjammer is one of the best places we have stayed in the UK. We look forward to staying there again and highly recommend it to anyone
