Brilliant Family Holiday
"A lovely stay at Rosewall Retreat which is modern, stylish and well equipped property (perhaps some young children's games and books for rainy days) A bit of a walk into town and back but kept us all fit and worked off the ice creams! We did catch the 'singing' bus when it was in town, which cost £3 for 2 adults and 2 children. St Ives is beautiful with lots of wonderful beaches, things to do and places to ear. Porthmeor beach best for body boarding. Recommend Hub Box for burgers, Cafe Pasta & Pizzeria, fish and chips places near RNLI on the front and Pedn Olva towards Porthminster beach, to and Alba bar for happy hour. Children do not want to leave. Would recommend and visit again, thank you!"

Guest BookReview07 2018
"Stunning property! Very clean with excellent facilities. We have loved our stay here despite the sun hiding for most of the week. The house is a leisurely 20 minute walk downhill to St Ives center but may take an extra 6 to 8 minutes back home - taxi fare is only £5 to £6 pounds. Highlights include St Ives center, Mousehole and Porthmeor Beach. Highly recommended. Thank you Carbis Bay Holidays"

"Rosewall Retreat is a fantastic place to stay, both cozy and contemporary! We took a short walk into St Ives to see the Christmas lights and visit the recently re-opened Tate Gallery. It really is a wonderful place to stay at this time of the year. We highly recommend a walk up Rosewall Hill where we were treated to an amazing view of St Ives and the sea beyond. Definitely returning in 2018!"
