Fabulous holiday in a picturesque location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the lookout!! There was plenty of room for us (7 adults and 2 babies) and the views were beautiful! It had everything we needed and more! Very family friendly with a highchair, travel cot and baby bath available. It's only a short drive into Carbis Bay or St Ives but is away from all the hussle and bussel so brilliant location. Ian was a pleasure to deal with and we would love to come back! Thank you for having us!

Wonderful, family holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home after our 4th visit to The Lookout! Can't recommend it highly enough. It's perfect for a family holiday. We go with our daughter, son in law and their 3 children. Maddie was only 9months on our first visit, this visit she was almost 4 and remembered it from last year!!! The children love the freedom and the animals. It's so close to wonderful beaches. I think St Ives must be one of my all time favourite places. Ian and Sue are such lovely hosts. We have booked our week for next year 😊 xx

Wonderful New YearS

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this lovely cottage for a New Years Holiday. The cottage is lovely it is to a very high standard. The living area was spacious and bright, lots of comfortable seating, games and dvd's and books if required.

The kitchen was very well equipped with everything and more! you needed. The bedrooms were lovely and the beds comfortable and bed linen and decoration to high standard.

Beautiful views over the countryside and a view of the sea. It's about a 30 min walk into St Ives, but a really enjoyable one through the countryside.

The owners Ian & Sue were fantastic, so friendly anything you needed you just had to ask and theres a folder with all local info for you e.g. taxi nos. restaurants etc.

Travelled with my husband and two small children, and a friend and her two older girls, we all loved it. Would definitely recommend it for anyone especially familes.
