Lovely cottage and location. Be careful with stairs especially with children. We find best to park in Island car park and take your luggage to cottage with you it's not far and better than barnoon car park. We don't use car once here as st Ives as it all. Take an outing on the train to Penzance. Eat in Lifeboat Inn. Hubbox. Porthmeor cafe and the scoff troff cafe if you have a well behaved pooch they are all very welcoming.

May 2019

great relaxing break in St Ives. We visit the area at least once a year off season to really enjoy the rugged coastline and spectacular views. Plenty of food and drink outlets to cater for all appetites and budgets. Cottages along the Digey and Downalong are in the best locations.

Apr 2019

Once again, brilliant service from the team at aspects. Finding a property, the booking process and collecting keys couldn’t be easier, they really have taken all the hassle away.

The personal touches and helpful staff make the stay so much better and start your break off in a really positive way.

A charming, cosy, traditional cottage which was perfect for our short break. Great location only yards from Porthmeor for dog walks and Fore Street for everything else. Thank you.
