Response from Tom:
Thanks Paulette for your great review and I’m really pleased you had a great time. Wardrobes are really difficult in the 2 rooms that don’t have them because of space in the blue room and wonky walls and fireplace in the room you were in , which make them look like there standing off the wall in the ‘middle’ of the room . Some more hooks or a rail on the wall might be the answer. Thanks for your feedback Tom

This house is much more beautiful than you can imagine from the photos - it was glorious to stay in and be our base while we explored cornwall for the week. It felt like Home the first evening! The short walk to Lelant Saltings station meant getting into St Ives was so easy and l…
