We had a great stay at Wild Thyme with our family of 9. The house has great views and is ideally placed for going to Carbis Bay beach and is a short 20/30 min walk from St Ives. We found it had all the amenities we needed. Would stay there again if we visit St Ives.

Lovely place, very close to Carbis beach with lovely views. It housed our family comfortably for a week - 6 adults, 3 kids and a baby. I'd highly recommend it to anyone.

This is a gem of a place. The views were outstanding, a close walk to the beach. Rooms are a great size with comfortable beds and each room had an ensuite. Plenty of space for a large family to enjoy.

This house is very well equipped, is in a superb location and we all enjoyed the week we had there. You can walk into St Ives along the coastal path very easily, or down to the beach below the house. There's good parking and we'd recommend it for a family holiday.

Laurie was very responsive. I texted for a recommendation for dinner and she got back to me ASAP. Same for when we thought we had locked ourselves out. We appreciated the scones/cream/jam left for us. The house is well equipped. Interior of the house is as the pictures show and is quite good for a larger group. The little separate cottage is very sweet and cozy. The location was a challenge for us but that is because we had older individuals in their late 70s and their mobility is a bit limited. It is very steep and this made it too challenging to walk to both beach and train station. We did do the walk back from St. Ives and it was a lovely walk that I really enjoyed and didn't find difficult. The older individuals enjoyed the scenery but found it very very hard to do. We ended up driving more than we thought. But if you don't have mobility issues then the location would be no problem as you can walk to beach, train and st ives and the walks have very good views. It is unfortunate that the house view is perhaps not as good as the picture might show. Just to the left of where the picture is taken is a big garage that is an eye sore. But the house itself is very good and overall this is a very good stay.
