Stayed here for 2 nights. We (11 of us) were in Cornwall to attend a wedding in nearby St Ives. Beechwood is situated in beautiful Carbis bay which is a short drive from St Ives town centre. Our host 'Jan' and her lovely daughter took great care of us. We occupied 6 rooms in this homely guesthouse so we were... More

Just returned from a 4 night stay at the Beechwood with my fiancé. We come to Cornwall every year around the same time for his birthday and are getting married in ST Ives next year. Wanted somewhere this year which was closer to the town so this place ticked the boxes with location being 1.2 miles away (half hour walk... More

I want to agree here with everything others have said about the family running the Beechwood. Just lovely and really helpful. However, my room was just a bit in need of an update. Everything was clean and tidy, but the brown and cream was quite sad and some things just were not fitted well even if new. I like bright,... More

The Carbis Bay area provides more sensibly priced accommodation in ~St. Ives, and Beechwood House was no exception. Although the room was exceedingly "compact", it was comfortable enough, quiet, with a good shower and quality linen. The breakfasts were excellent. No problem with returning here.

Lady who served breakfast always chatty and interested in where you have been. Rooms cleaned every day. Very handy for bus into St Ives. Decor good but feels it needs a good... More

We have visited a couple of times already this year and love the place. Pete, Jan and their Daughter were wonderful hosts. Loved hearing Pete's tales, great breakfast entertainment. Not hard to see why they moved from Coventry many years ago. They work hard and it's a pleasure to stay in such a lovely accommodating house. The breakfast is great... More

Friendly hosts, really nice bedroom with comfortable beds and a great breakfast - you choose your option the night before. Parking (free) was a bit tricky but the place was easy to find. Good local advice on where to visit.

Staff very friendly and helpful with explaining the area. Due to me being an awkward vegan and not liking usual options I kindly asked if they would be able to get in some soy milk and dairyfree spread for my breakfast for the 2 days I was there - Was really pleased when I found they had got it in,...

Had a really pleasant stay here over the bank holiday weekend. Very friendly and knowledgable staff and convenient location. 25 min walk to St Ives but a few minutes away from a station- frequent trains 1 stop away from St ives. Breakfast was nice- pre-ordered the night before so was very quick to arrive and a good range of options.... More
