There isn't a great deal to add in praise of the Channings. Having read the excellent reviews that guests have given to the B & B, I can only agree with them. We ,as a couple, stayed at the Channings for two weeks in July, occupying room 1. This is a large room that has unsurpassed views over St. Ives...

Located on a hill above the station and the golden Porthminster beach, the B&B is easily accessible for those without a car and is just a few minutes' walk from the centre of St Ives. Our well-appointed room (6) was ideal...

Fab B&B. Really great location close to Porthminster Beach. Lovely sea view from our room. Susan was a great host and made us feel very welcome. The Room was immaculately clean and nothing was too much trouble. The food was also really great and the overall experience was faultless.
