Fabulous location very hilly but everywhere is in St Ives. Best breakfast we have ever had on any of our stays. Tracey and Leigh are very good hosts. Anyone would love staying their no compliants from us.

Tips:

Make sure you use the buses there they are an great experience. So much to see in the Cornwall Area. We did most of it by bus as we didnt have a hire car.

Tracy and Leigh are very welcoming, and the B&B is lovely. Our room #6 was clean, comfortable, adorable and had a fantastic view of the harbour. Although the bathroom is on the smaller side, this was not an issue for us. Everything was well maintained. Breakfast every morning was delicious, too. The place is very close to the train station and main road into town, so it is very convenient. Thanks again for everything!

Tips:

If the weather is good for it, go visit the seals on seal island by boat. If you are into escape rooms, St Ives has a great one about 10 minutes away from the B&B. Be sure to get ice cream at Moomaids and Cornish Cream. If you want a good hike, the South West Coast trail picks up by Porthmeor Beach.

We stayed on the top floor in a cosy, well decorated room which had lovely views of the harbour. The location was perfect. The house is on a quiet road and only a few minutes walk to the town centre. The on-site parking was a huge benefit. Thank you for a lovely visit.

Barrie and Angela are two of the nicest people you could meet always there to help if it’s needed. Angela was up early to do us some breakfast because we had a early train to catch. That sort of attention makes the Rivendell stand out amongst other b&bs we have stayed out before. Have the full English breakfast you won’t be disappointed, so yes well done chef we will be back next year.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Our rooms were very clean and well-equipped, and we had views of the sea. The people running the guest-house were very friendly and helpful.The other guests were also friendly. There was an excellent choice of food for breakfast (including gluten-free toast and lots of fruit).

Tips:

St Ives is a really lovely place. Restaurants we like are (in descending price order) Porthminster Kitchen,Beach, Harbour Fish & Chips, & Balancing Eel. For lunches and snacks we like Bumbles Tea room, Yellow Canary & Pels. Favourite places to visit are Hepworth Sculpture Garden and Tate Gallery. There are many other very good art galleries, & also open studios during September Festival. Best short walks with amazing views are to Carbis Bay and up on the headland west of Porthmeor beach. The short train journey to St Erth also has wonderful views of the whole bay.

Boat trip to seal island is a must. Sunset on Porthmeor beach is also a must to see, it will take your breath away. Too many restaurants to mention as they are really good with plenty of choice for everyone. Do need to book though in advance as very busy.

Great place to stay , very friendly and accommodating hosts. We were made to feel very welcome and it was very nice to see that all that the other guests at the time had been returning for 20+years . We will definitely return , many thanks for our lovely stay .

Tips:

A visit to St.Michaels mount is a must but quite a climb up to the castle so wouldn't suit the very young or old . Seafood Cafe and Pasta&Pizzaria are great places to eat, also Pels for good quality takeaway food. Take a look into some of the craft markets as there are some great crafters in them especially jewellery. If your going to visit other places getting a rail n bus ticket is a great idea and will cost about £20 but travel is limitless for that day .

This was our 6th annual visit to Rivendell. We wouldn't dream of stopping anywhere other than with Barry and Angela. The premises are cleaned and tidied every day and Barry's breakfasts are not to be missed. Angela is a great "front of house" and is always cheerful and pleasant. She is also the font of knowledge when it comes to where to go, where to eat, what's happening in St Ives etc. We will return next year and, hopefully, for many more years to come.

Breakfast was freshly cooked and flexible to our requests and room was immaculately clean and cosy.

Tips:

We enjoyed walking along the South-West Coastal path, visiting the Tate & Barbara Hepworth sculture museum and bobbing in and out of the local shops. Enjoyed eating at Mermaid Seafood Restaurant (seafood platter was delicious) and The Rum & Crab Cafe and sampling a new cocktail.

Had a fabulous stay at Rivendell Barrie & Angela made us feel so welcome, breakfast was excellent from full English to lighter options which were always hot and very tasty (loved the sausages) Both were very helpful with useful suggestions regarding locations to visit and useful tips on where to park etc

Tips:

Rivendell is located close to Porthminster Beach, RailwayStation and shops, Bars etc, there is a bit of a hill to climb on your way back but nothing to severe, lots of local restaurants with in a five minute walk and a must visit is the Rajpoot Indian Restaurant you can take your own beer as it is not licensed, The sloop Inn & the Castle Inn were good nights and the Wetherspoons pub is also an easy walk and food was good. All in all great location for an enjoyable holiday will definitely go back again

Angela and Barry are wonderful hosts, such a gorgeous couple and so friendly. They go out of their way to help recommend places to visit and nothing is too much for them. The room was spotless and the decor of the whole home was just beautiful... The variety of the full english breakfast including cereals, fruit, yoghurts etc. etc and yet the homely way it was served, was amazing It's like home away from home. Cannot fault this place. Congratulations to Angela and Barry. Highly recommend.

Tips:

Lots of nice restaurants to eat in along the waterfront, depending on what one likes. The Botallack mine is a must and they have the best Cornish pasties. The ancient church in Zennor is very interesting and historic. A visit to Falmouth on the King Harry Floating Bridge and then on a ferry to Mawes is also nice to do.. We hired a car, so were able to look around more and enjoy the beautiful sceneries and unique little villages. St. Ives us just stunning.

Rivendell is situated on a hill giving wonderful views over looking St Ives Harbour and Porthminster beach. The property is well looked after and maintained to a very high standard. Barrie and Angela are lovely hosts and take great care to ensure your stay will be a very pleasant one, Breakfast will be the highlight at the start of your day giving you full nourishment before starting out on your daily activity.

Tips:

St Ives is a lovely picturesque town with plenty to see including the Tate gallery, local museum and many other art studios. St Ives has many lovely beaches to enjoy the sun or you may wish to stretch those legs on a number of coastal walks. A short train ride or in the car will get you to a number of coastal places but your holiday will be well spent and fulfilled in St Ives.

Very friendly and helpful couple, to whom nothing seemed too much trouble, even allowing us to return after we had checked out, to change for a funeral. Excellent knowledge of the area. Great breakfast with multiple options, all cooked and/or prepared to perfection.

Tips:

We had a lovely meal in The Captains Table at The Sloop. The restaurant is upstairs, but the beer comes from the pub, so it's a great combination, as the pub itself gets busy and difficult to find a table to eat. Apparently the lifeboatmen practice on Wednesdays, although we missed them, and then go to The Sloop for a few beers afterwards. Excellent quality live music by local musicians at the Kettle and Wink, next to the Western Hotel.

Rivendell is a perfect B&B, minutes away from the beach and town. Our hosts were welcoming and made our stay a delight. Our room was beautiful, clean and just right for our stay, with everything we needed. Breakfast was very good and plentiful, a great start to a heavy schedule of relaxing and taking in the fabulous coastal views, shops and local hospitality. Rivendell is the ideal place to stay, a beautiful period house, well maintained, secure, spotlessly clean and tidy; with friendly and welcoming hosts. I hope I get the chance to return.

Tips:

We ate at spinacios vegetarian restaurant, there was a small menu which is what I prefer, the food was delicious and the atmosphere friendly and relaxed. Our other find was the Porthminster cafe right on the beach, again, we had excellent food in a relaxing and beautiful setting with fantastic views across the bay and out to sea. St. Ives is just a perfect place to stay. Plenty of shops, with everything you could want on a holiday. We visited the Barbara Hepworth garden which is a must. We will definitely return when the Tate St. Ives re-opens next year. Still so much to explore. Views are breathtaking and getting up for the sunrise across the bay is recommended.

This was our first visit to Rivendell and won't be our last. Lovely room with comfy bed and a great view from the windows. Angela made us feel very welcome offering us a cup of tea and even a cream tea on arrival! Barrys breakfast of excellent quality locally sourced ingredients was delicious and really set us up for the day. Lovely B&B run by a lovely couple.

Tips:

Try a walk along the Sout West costal path and see the real beauty of Cornwall.

Angela & Barrie, you are a wonderful couple and nothing seems to be to much trouble to make one welcome. Your breakfasts are the tops and the accommodation is spot on, I feel very fortunate to have found such a lovely B&B with such accommodating proprietors. Long may you continue to remain at Rivendell and all being well I wouuld love to stay again in the future (If you will have me).

Tips:

There are many good restaurants in the town, but sadly I tend to stay away from them, I never like sitting on my own in a restaurant, thats why I generally go to a pub where I can sit,eat and talk to the persons sat next to me.(I guess this is not much help,sorry.)

We were both made to feel very welcome the moment we walked in. Angela gave us a map of the local area and booklets of attractions were provided which enabled us to plan our visit. The room was homely and cleaned to a high standard daily. The breakfast was delicious with a number of options.

Tips:

The hotel was a 5min walk from the train station and about 10mins away from the town centre with lovely views of the harbour. We were able to visit the Eden project by train on one day. And we went on a local ghost walk where we were told all the local tales.

We thought that the restaurants were a little bit expensive especially when they start to add extras on to your bill for deep frying your chosen piece of fish. My wife and I recommend The Lifeboat Inn for good food and ale at a reasonable cost

its a perfect place to stay in St.Ives. 8 of us stayed there over the Easter weekend and we had a gala time. Angela and Barrie are the most lovely host I have ever met. We all received tea and scones on arrival (and we all arrived at different time) The fresh homemade breakfast was the prefect start of the day. The highlight was "The Easter Bunnies"... we all received a big Easter bunny on Easter Sunday. It was easy to travel as the train station was 5 mins walk from the guesthouse. The view was amazing from almost all the rooms. The rooms were well decorated, clean, tidy and homely. I just loved the stay and would like to go back.

Very impressed with Angela and Barrie,who were very helpful,informative and friendly,we felt immediately at home and relaxed.Room was lovely and bed very comfy,cleanliness second to none.The breakfast was excellent,and nothing too much trouble.Adequate parking facilities,and only 5 min walk to St Ives,would definitely recommend and would stay again.
