This property is an absolute delight. The spacious layout, the unique engaging decor, the wonderful library, the visiting cats; so many features to soothe and restore. We felt like we were guests in the very best sense of that word. There is an lovely energy in this house, everything layered into an expansive permission, to let go to a different horizon. My big choices were which of the spectactualar views to enjoy, each with a different lens. The spaciousness meant we had different backdrops to enjoy and find release. Elegant but homely, it really strikes a unique note. I loved the lanes and the ease of everthing nearby. A gift of a holiday.

St Ives will charm you, people and gulls included, but at this house you can step away from the crowds and relax.You will have a lovely time because all the colours of the sea and sand will fill your mind and if you go in the sea you will rediscover your childhood.

We have just spent a week at this wonderful cottage. It is in a fantastic location, with wonderful views of the harbour. Whether you are sitting in the lovely little garden, having a cup of tea in bed first thing in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening on the top floor, you can soak up the scenery! It is perfectly located to thoroughly enjoy all that St Ives has to offer. We felt so at home and loved having different areas that we could enjoy as a family together or find a little quiet time individually. It is very well equipped and so creatively furnished and decorated with so much more character than the average holiday let. We have never visited St Ives before but we will definitely be visiting again and it would have to be staying at this lovely property.

Great location, so handy just a minutes walk to the centre of St Ives. Views from the third floor lounge were a pleasant surprise. Would highly recommend this cottage it had everything we needed for a relaxing stay in St Ives.

This house is a haven for lovers of books and art. It is a very comfortable home from home and so close to the beaches, restaurants and attractions of St Ives.

We extended our stay, this was made easy and carried out efficiently. Loved the property, it is exceptionally 'homely' and has fabulous views. The garden at the front of the property has excellent views and sitting out the front or upstairs on the top floor with the doors open was amazing. The lounge is great to sit in and with two facing sofas very sociable for friends.

This cottage is in a great location with great views of the harbour. Also a very well stocked kitchen and comfortable beds.
Dr Derrick September 2017
This is an amazing place to stay, with lots of personal touches that add character. The location and the view from the attic room are unbeatable, the best we have ever seen and we have been staying in Cornwall every year for over 20 years!

Mrs Longman July 2016
This is a wonderfully comfortable cottage, exceptionally placed to explore St Ives. Not for light sleepers though - bedrooms were very light and the seagulls are very noisy.

Ms D'Araujo September 2013
A beautiful, comfortable property, in a fantastic location; it felt like we were staying in a home rather than a holiday house. Lovely decor, every mod con, fixtures and fittings you could possibly need, plus stunning views of St Ives Bay.
We will definitely booking this accommodation again and can't wait to return to St Ives.
Mr MacIver June 2013
A lovely property, but car parking is an issue.
Mr Roberts April 2013
I shared this holiday with Australian and Canadian friends making their first visit to St Ives and Cornwall. All much travelled, this beautiful house and setting 'wowed' them fromn the moment they set foor in the door. The stay has led to a great love for this area and I am sure we will all come back again to 4 Bowling Green. For me, it is far the best cottage I have ever rented.
