Skippers Loft is a beautiful property right in the heart of St Ives. Everything is just a stones throw away, stunning beaches, award winning restaurants and fantastic art. The next door neighbours are lovely too. The loft was ideal for our family of three, well equipped and thoughtfully decorated. A real home away from home. We appreciated the beach toys that had been left, and the books and games. It was very clean too. There are a lot of stairs and no stair gates so might not be suitable for toddlers, and the sash windows open from the bottom so need to keep an eye on the kids when they are open. Thank you Cottage Boutique for a fantastic, and much needed holiday.

Excellent stay at Skippers Loft, St Ives. The accommodation was well appointed, fantastic seaview from the bedroom a delight to wake up to. The accommodation was very light and airy with everything you could need. It was clean with luxury towels and the slipper bath was really relaxing with the setting sun streaming through the window. A fantastic place to escape from it all and only 3 mins from Portmeor beach. Definitely somewhere to return to. The Cottage Boutique were easy to deal with and all communication was good, I will use them again when booking in St Ives.

Thank you very much for allowing us to stay in the delightful Skippers Loft. The cottage is gorgeous, tasteful and a delight to be in. Thank you also for the lovely treats - all those little touches added to our perfect week in St Ives.

This is our first visit to Skippers Loft and we very much enjoyed it. The location is perfect & especially handy for Norway Stores for all our essentials. We very much appreciated our little welcome gifts - very thoughtful. The decoration/design is perfect & all the finishing touches are superb - I just love the bathroom & the lighthouse lamp - well done! Thanks for a great stay.

We arrived last night. We are delighted with the cottage, my son (who lives here) thinks it’s beautiful too.
Thank you so much to whoever came in and got it all cosy and warm for us. Thank you for the cheese, beer and wine. Been to the local store this morning for the essentials (local bacon, butter and bread and milk 😋).
Off to see our grandson feeling very happy.
Thanks again
