"Old Tresco House is exceptional and the quality of the house is very good. Loved the colour windows. Everyday we noticed something better about the property. Nice short walk to beach and harbour. The lady that met us to let us in and showed us around had great communication and very helpful. Highly recommended. Thanks for a great holiday. Nigel Katie and Phoebe"
As a group of 3 couples plus one and our dogs, we really enjoyed our stay in Old Tresco House. The location is excellent, walking distance to St ives along the coast, in front of the beach, the view from any room is a delight and the whole accommodation is of very high standard and nicely decorated. Beautiful modern and design furniture, excellent beds, and comfortable showerroom. The size and configuration leave all opportunity for independence of the guests and the kitchen area is a fantastic large, full of light room for gathering all together with more than necessary space. A little bit more practical organization could be given to the kitchen mainly and I am confident it will be done -our request during our stay has been immediately dealt with-. It is certainly a place where we would like to come again for a next visit to St Ives.
