Rivington is a beautiful place, spotlessly clean, Uber well equipped and is a lovely place. There was a fantastic welcome pack and personal greeting which made the stay special.

Lovely cottage - spacious, well-equipped, tastefully decorated, and spotlessly clean. The location is great if you want to be in the St Ives area but away from the busy town centre. The cottage is just on the edge of Carbis Bay in a wonderfully peaceful setting with a very pretty garden. The beach and several restaurants are a short walk from the pRead moreroperty. St Ives is about 30 minutes walk via the costal path. The owners were extremely welcoming. Highly recommend this property! Hide

We got a lovely welcome when we arrived and a great welcome tray plus a lovely vase of flowers. The cottage had everything we needed and was spotlessly clean. The decor was lovely bright and new and the garden delightful. We traveled around the area easily by car and the walk to St Ives is very nice with great views at the end.

We dont normally leave reviews, however we couldnt not for Rivington as it was so lovely. The cottage is beautiful and even more so in real life. It is in a great location, a 5-10minute walk to the bus stop to catch a bus into St.Ives. Thank you to Jill and Roger for making our first family holiday a special one, we hope to be back again next year.Read more Hide

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
