Clean and comfortable in a Lovely setting
We had a great week at footprints. It was clean and comfortable with those little extras that make a difference. The setting was really peaceful set in a wood which means there is plenty of wildlife about especially in the morning. We saw jays, bullfinches, rabbits and squirrels. Booking was really easy and Ady and Joanne offered their local knowledge to make the most of our stay. A visit to the Minack theatre is a must and we had a great meal at the water ill. Overall a great week made better by the weather. We looking forward to staying a again in September.
Booking was straight forward and easy. Cottage very tidy and clean. Well equipped and well located on the park close to the pool and shop. Site is really well located for St Ives, beaches, parks, childrens entertainment venues, pubs etc etc. Cannot find fault and excellent value for money.
The accomadation is set in a wooded area which my 2 boys loved playing in. It was Clean and tidy on arrival and well equipped. Perfect location within the park and perfect base for exploring Cornwall. Enjoyed it so much we have rebooked for next year for another 2 weeks. The Owners have been very friendly and have answered any quesions we have had without delay.
Setting and location were beautiful, right in the heart of Cornwall near to everything we wanted to do and visit. Accommodation was clean and tidy, very pleasant indeed.
The property was a real home from home. Spotless clean upon arrival and everything you could possibly need. You can tell that the owners have put their own stamp on the cottage and made it a home. The setting was lovely and peaceful amongst the trees which also helped to keep the temperature indoors at a nice level when it was hot outside. Plenty of wildlife to watch from the window. Nicely situated site and very central for all local attractions. The owners were extremely helpful in suggesting places to visit and leaving helpful info for us in the cottage. The only downside was having to leave at the end of the week as time flew by too quickly!! Will definitely be visiting again as soon as we are able.
From the Owner
“Our friends were the previous owners of Footprints and we used to come down every June for about 3 years running. When our friends decided to relocate we took the opportunity of buying it because we loved it so much. We still holiday here ourselves in the school holidays with our 2 girls Molly now (16) and Jessica (13) at least twice a year.”

From the Owner
“We fell in love with the place because the girls could play on the grass just outside and watch the rabbits and squirrels. St. Ives itself has some very clean and beautiful beaches and lovely cobbled streets and quaint shops. The park itself has an indoor swimming pool (handy for rainy days!) nightly entertainment but above all the woodland setting is very peaceful and it's a great touring base if you want to discover Cornwall”
