Lovely stay at Margot's Retreat:
High standard of cleanliness in property and very spacious. Underfloor heating in property is very efficient and easy to control as thermostats in each room. Great to have two identical king sized bedrooms at front of property with en-suite bathrooms, and the beds are very comfy. Good location with easy 15 minute walk into St Ives with a great range of restaurants, useful to have a torch if returning in the evening as for a small part of the walk there is no pavement. Kitchen has great range of appliances and kitchen equipment. The garden is fully enclosed at front and rear so perfect for a dog. Would not hesitate in recommending this property. Thank you for excellent communication and exceptional standard of cleanliness.

What a lovely stay in a beautiful location. Me, my family and the doggo had a lovely time, the home had everything we could need. All the bits you could need to make our stay comfortable. We cannot wait to return again... Thank you.


Great stay at Margot's. Loved having an easy place to park as st ives had car parks then walk to the destination. Drive to town was only 5 minutes and it was nice to have a large space that wasn’t crowded to go back to in the evening. The front yard was a lovely space to do activities and eat when we had nice weather. Comfy beds and room for the whole family. It is noted in the amenities that there is only hand soap included but remember to bring your own toiletries! We loved cooking in the kitchen and having an open space to dine and lounge on the sofa for movies in the evening. Thanks!


Lovely property in a quiet location a 5-minute drive to centre of St Ives its a home from home property had a great week our second stay at the property in 18 months highly recommended.


A very nice house. Perfectly equipped with everything you need and also makes living pleasant.

The accommodation is very well maintained and clean. The terrace and outdoor area are tastefully and functionally landscaped. We would have loved to stay forever 😊.

The place is even more beautiful than you can see in the pictures.
The contact with Lisa was very nice and unproblematic.

Thank you for the wonderful time!!!


A great property that was homely and welcoming. Worth using the local bus service if you have little ones with you; buses are reliable. A great location in a beautiful area. Look forward to coming back in the future.


Margot's was every bit as lovely as the photos. It was in a rural setting with great walks on the doorstep and was beautifully furnished and comfortable. The house really suited our needs. Lisa was very responsive when questions were raised.
