A beautiful cottage at the end of a country lane with a shallow brook running alongside. The cottage had everything. It was spacious and comfortable to relax in the evenings. It was a convenient base for visiting lots of places of interest in this area of Cornwall. Our dog enjoyed rambling around the small garden which was very safe and enclosed byRead more hedges and 2 gates. It is a steep walk to the beach but all paved and takes 15 mins down. It is an easy walk to St Ives and back from Carbis Bay. Hide

Hidden gem of a property. Quiet area. Nicely furnished. Comfortable and clean throughout. Well equipped. Established garden with mature plants a haven of peace and tranquility. Ideally located just outside St Ives where there are independent shops aplenty. Several stunning beaches close by - Carbis Bay, Port kidney and Porthmeor. A delight for dog Read morewalkers.

The cottage is faultless inside and it has the most beautiful secluded gardens, This is our second year visiting. The cottage has everything you could wish for and more. It is a real home from home. We adored the pond and the barbecue in the gardens. Despite being very close to Carbis Bay you feel so away from it all.

We had a lovely stay as a family at Rivington. It was a lovely cottage with everything provided for a week away from home. We enjoyed the private outside space and my sons loved to feed the fish each day. The location was great for visits to carbis bay and St Ives and kept our fitness levels up on the uphill sections. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekRead more and could quite happily have stayed longer. Our thanks to the owner and welcome wine and biscuits was a lovely touch. Hide

Comfortable, well equipped and cosy cottage. Had everything we needed. It is in a residential location, but feels secluded. Carbis bay beach beautiful, but only made it there once as the journey on foot is almost vertical! Some buses to St ives which has lots of amenities... would recommend.

A perfect cottage for a family holiday with a two and a five year old. It is a really relaxing place to be and our boys loved feeding the fish in the pond in the garden. The kitchen is amazingly well equipped with a good sized fridge and freezer section. The washing machine with drying racks were also really useful! We will be back Im sure!
