All perfect, a wonderful week

Jason Evans





We had a lovely time, it was our first time in St Ives and we would love to come back next year! You have a wonderful cottage, everything was catered for and we wanted for nothing

Kim Rawlings





We've recently come back from a long weekend at Happy Days and couldn't have been more delighted. It's perfectly located between the harbour and Porthmeor Beach - right in the heart of things. The quality of the towels and bedding was excellent and the kitchen had everything we needed. Happy Days indeed...

Andy Hawkins





Thank you so much, your cottage was delightful and we had a great relaxing visit to Cornwall. We will most definitely use one of your properties again

Alison Mason

Our winters break

  • 5 of 5

It was my Wife and I first visit to St Ives,initially we were a little unsure of what expect. Our worries were soon unnecessary as we found Happy Days Cottage home from home. The facilities were all you could wish for. Wood burning fire, excellent kitchen facilities, televisions in every room, WI FI available, 3 bedrooms [two doubles and one single, there is even a roll top bath in the master bedroom. Bathroom with shower over bath. The cleanliness was second to none. The cottage is situated one minute from the beech, there are great pubs and restaurants of all tastes, steak, fish, Chinese etc. The shops are really quaint I would say of high street shops 50 years ago! After a really enjoyable holiday we most certainly will be booking up this year possibly taking members of our family. In conclusion please thank the owners of Happy Days that it is a credit to them in achieving this fantastic environment thank you.

Nice cottage

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from wonderful week in st Ives.

Happy days cottage is a very nice cottage everything in it is of a high standard, beds very comfortable ,kitchen has everything you need.

It's position is great very easy to walk anywhere in town the only downside to this property is the road it's very small as are all in st Ives but it is the access rd to the island car park so it's very busy and a lot of noise and people back and forth.
