  • "The communication with the hosts Simon and Carine was excellent."

    The welcome pack was amazing. We had a brilliant week in this lovely cottage in beautiful St Ives

  • "WOW!!!"

    Ok, so we are a hard crowd to please. We notice the mattress, the soaps, the flowers, the cleanliness, and WOW! Every other cottage is now going to be a disappointment as Men An Mor was superb. THE most stunning location, we could basically swim from the rocks, In turquoise waters, three steps from the window. It was magical, the most beautiful wild flowers everywhere through out the house, lovely spoiling soaps and shampoos, big fluffy towels, hot water when ever needed (teenagers……) and comfy beds. Not even starting on the master bedroom, which makes you feel like a princess, and that bath, that view. I miss it dreadfully. Simon and Carine couldn’t have been friendlier, more helpful, lists of great places to eat, even seeking out gluten free pasties for us, genuinely they couldn’t have been more thoughtful or kinder to our family. It was honestly one of the best holidays we’ve ever been on, St Ives is heaven, and we are definitely going to be back. The biggest and most heartfelt thank you to Simon and Carine, we had the most wonderful family holiday ever and your very special house and kindness was a huge part of that. Thank you, can’t wait to be back!

With its semi Bohemian lifestyle and romantic air, it's easy to see why this is the county's premier holiday resort.
