Step Inside

A comfortable ambiance awaits.  The pretty living space with garden views is a relaxing room for holiday life, the pebble effect elective stove sets the scene for out of season stays or open up the patio doors for that inside out feel.  From the fully fitted kitchen and dining room to the welcoming bedrooms with Feather and Black beds, each space has been thoughtfully styled.

From your Holiday Door

A private patio with outdoor seating is a real suntrap in the summer and a great place for children and dogs alike to play and spread out.  St Ives is a short drive away, or the Saltings Reach branch line train is a 5 minute walk from the cottage.  You arrive at the stunning Porthminster Beach, St. Ives in just 8 minutes and sample some breathtaking coastline along the way.  Choose to bring your dog with you this year, Saltings View Cottage welcomes well behaved dogs and the closest beach, Porthkidney is dog friendly all year round.  Porthkidney beach is just a short 20 minute walk and there is a pretty walk along the Saltings to get to it.  From the beach you can pick up the South West Coast Path and walk to Carbis Bay and St. Ives.

As always polite and professional. Spotless could do with the cleaners a home!

Vicki Westbury

Many thanks for a lovely stay - and the welcome gifts were wonderful!

Jane Ward

Saltings View was exactly as it looked on the website, cosy, very well-equipped & felt like a home rather than a rental property. I found Cornish Gems to be an excellent rental company providing an easy, trouble-free booking process assisted by very friendly, helpful staff. I would definitely use the company again.

Kay Stark

We had a lovely stay at Saltings and loved seeing the train go by ! Perfect position for travelling to beaches, leaving the car behind. The house was very good, clean and bright and we would hope to return.

Mrs J Sheerman

Saltings View really was in lovely condition, well equipped and the text service was very efficient. With Birdies and the Quay House both accepting dogs, and the ability to walk onto Porth Kidney with our dog, this made for a really easy first trip 'home' with our newly adopted pooch. Many thanks


We had an excellent stay as always and will definitely be back.

The property was fantastic and was really home from home. We loved out time there and found the house to be extremely clean, well maintained, warm and cosy. It was really nice to have a Christmas tree when we walked in and made us feel really festive. I would completely recommend the property as it was truly lovely.

Mrs Elizabeth Treadwell

Thank you for another lovely Christmas break, this year in Saltings View Cottage. The house itself and the customer service we received whilst booking/queries, etc, was faultless. We always recommend Cornish Gems and hope to be back again soon!

Fantastic customer service received from you - compared to your competitors, one of which we have used for over 20 years, your service is far superior.

A very cosy, comfortable and well equipped cottage. The location was great, a short walk to the train station, hop on a train and 10 minutes later we arrived in St Ives - Hassle free! We will definitely return.

Alan Rawson

Every member of our family was very happy about the cottage and my five-year old granddaughter enjoyed playing in the "bedroom of the princess". I enjoyed the quiet location of the cottage and also its vicinity to the "carting place", which my sons enjoyed and went there three times. We did not mind having to take the train to St Ives, as the ride is panoramic and short.

Christina Angell

Another great stay with Cornish Gems.
