The property was gorgeous and a delight to stay in. It was warm and spacious and we received a warm welcome which included a tray with tea, coffee, sugar, wine, chocolates and flowers! I cant think of anyway in which the property could be improved. Im sure well go back!

Rivington is a wonderfully welcoming cottage. The garden is absolutely stunning, the sofa's comfortable, beds soft and luxurious. I had some amazing holidays sleeps here. Everything is well stocked and accessible. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here if we were coming to this part of Cornwall again.

Such a beautiful, well equipped, well thought out property. The garden is so amazing we could have stayed the whole time. 20 min walk to Carbis Bay and 45 to St Ives (hilly). Find the shortcut to train station through the houses along the stream. Perfect would love to return.

Rivington is wonderful. 2nd week after lockdown lifted and the owners couldnt have made us more welcome. Their efforts to have the cottage ready with a great welcome pack were very much appreciated. The cottage has everything needed and spotlessly clean. We ate out every night and all the local restaurants had made great efforts to make us welcome Read moreand feel safe. Brilliant holiday with plenty of walking routes and 4 beautiful beeches in Cabris and St ives. Thanks again Jill and Roger Hide

Best holiday home we've stayed in. Peaceful location, yet so close to St Ives and an easy drive to other beautiful sites. Lovely garden, sometimes we were tempted to say in! Impeccably clean and made to feel welcome by the owner on arrival.

We had such a lovely stay at Rivington. The cottage was beautiful, filled with all we needed in every room and there were also a great selection of games and dvds for cosy evenings in as we have a toddler and a new born in the family. The cottage is just a short drive away from Carbis Bay train station where you can hop on and for a short ride to sRead moret ives whilst looking at the beautiful costal views! Jill and Roger were wonderful hosts and very accommodating. Im sure we will be back! Hide

The cottage looked good online but was even nicer in person. It's tucked away down a lane and is really quiet; the cottage itself is a lovely design - really light and with a good feeling of space. The garden is a real delight too. The owners were lovely - very welcoming and happy to help. This is one of the nicest cottages I've ever stayed in, andRead more I'd certainly go back. Hide
