"A gorgeous, relaxing place to stay with fabulous light and amazing views over the bay. Everything about the house was high quality, including the decor, furniture, fittings and accessories. All rooms and bathrooms were of a generous size and easily accommodate a party of ten. Close proximity to both Carbis Bay and St Ives makes this a great location. Would definitely recommend Salt House as a fabulous holiday venue!"
"We couldn’t have asked for more at Salt House. This house and the location exceeded our expectations and we would all most certainly go back again. A dream property that I would love to own myself! The only reason we didn’t score a perfect 5 stars is that there were a few minor problems with malfunctioning TVs, media, bulbs and hot water on day 1. They could have been checked during changeover. However, the housekeeper and other staff were very friendly and sorted most of the problems out while we were there. Otherwise it was just the most idyllic holiday."
"Thoroughly recommend Salt House. A superb, spacious, modern house with wonderful views over Carbis Bay. Very well equipped and has everything you need for a perfect holiday."
Surpassed our expectations
We had a lovely Christmas, we all remembered the house being built years ago, and it was very interesting to be able to stay there for some days. Thanks to Kerry the housekeeper, and also the cleaners, for the care and attention that they took in preparing the Salt House for us. It was all in excellent condition and certainly surpassed our expectations, which was a real pleasure.
Salt House is grand, Waking up to amazing views and perfect for our retreat this year. No doubt we will return here / St Ives and Cornwall again!
This has to be one of the most lovely places we’ve ever stayed in! The house is just awesome and we have totally enjoyed being here. The most relaxing, chilled out week, it’s hard to go home! Already booked again for next year. Thank you!!
