Its a lovely cottage in a fabulous location.

Mar 2020

Great position especially for attending art courses at the school of painting! An excellent heating system and cosy, comfortable beds which were needed in the gale force conditions last week . It's a very tasteful and well equipped cottage and retains plenty of character. It even has a good selection of books. Just lovely to spend time in!

Fisherman Cottage - 32 The Digey

Excellent location, comfortable an ideal location making a wonderful holiday - already rebooked for next year

Jul 2019

A great wee cottage in a great location take a right to the beach and the Tate, take a left to the town. Just perfect!.

Jun 2019

This was a lovely, traditional St.Ives cottage. It was simply furnished but very comfortable. A few minutes walk from the Tate and Porthmeor beach, it could not have been in a better location. Although not large, there was ample room for the two of us to eat and relax. Both bedrooms were good sizes and the beds extremely comfortable. It was easy to find and a short walk to car park up the hill from the Tate. A tastefully decorated cottage, with some interesting art work and books. We thoroughly recommend it!

May 2019

Great location! Well equipped with nice 'arty' accessories. Light and airy bedrooms. Good shower!

Apr 2019

Cosy cottage , perfect location to Porthmeor, st ives town and main beach ! Cottage welcomes you home from a long walk or beach day !

Apr 2019

Lovely homely feel without detracting from the quality of the accommodation. Enjoyed ourselves enormously.

Mar 2019

Had a wonderful holiday in Fisherman's cottage. Fantastic location being only steps from the beach and a short stroll into town. We didn't want to leave!

Mar 2019

We had a lovely Christmas week at 32 The Digey, stones throw from the beach and small walk into the town. The cottage was lovely, well equipped and homely. Plenty of books to read in the cottage, wet suits if you fancy a dip.

St Ives at Christmas was magical, the lights were amazing and it had a lovely feel. Can't wait to come back.

Dec 2018

Beautiful property in the best location. Just perfect.

Sep 2018

32 the Digey must be the bestlocation in St Ives! To be able to walk around the corner to the Tate and a fantastic beach was amazing. By day you are minutes from the hustle and bustle of shops, great cafes, boat trips and lovely walks. At night you can walk to good pubs and restaurants but it is quiet enough in the cottage to hear the sea. Heaven!

Jun 2018

We felt at home in Fisherman's cottage almost instantly. The location is perfect... 30 paces from the beach - we counted. And I'd pop over to Bumbles for a cappuccino for breakfast, then down the other end of the Digeybto the St Ives Bakery for croissants and sour dough. The beds are so comfortable with deep soft duvets, you can lie in and watch the blue sky through the sky light and hear the sea... perfect. Then snuggle up on the sofa with the cosy fire and a glass of wine. A perfect location at Amy time of year.

Apr 2018

Cosy, well appointed cottage , sunny aspect, can walk to all the main attractions in St Ives, great coastal walks on the doorstep.

Apr 2018

This property is by far our favourite for both comfort and proximity to the beach for dog walks and surf! Already planning our next trip!

Nov 2017

The cottage is in a wonderful location for Porthmeor beach, The local shop, the art galleries and studios, the Tate and all that makes St Ives so attractive. The cottage itself is warm and comfortable, modernised to an extent but has retained its character. Perfect for a couple or young family.

Nov 2017

Excellent cottage with original features, a real sense of history decorated beautifully. Would definitely book again.

Jan 2017

We come to St Ives regulary and this is one of the best properties we have stayed in. Not the biggest but perfect for a couple and their pet, 2 second stroll to the beach

Oct 2016

A very comfortable cottage, ideal location for the beach and shops.

Aug 2016

The property was exactly what it promised to be, and we were very happy with that. The cottage was cosy, comfortable, beautifully decorated, light and airy and freshly renovated. The linens and bedding was so comfortable I went out and bought the same things for my own home on the way home! We would definitely come back or recommend this property to others.

Lovely cottage, very small and cosy, clean and comfortable. Watch the stairs though! Second bedroom very small.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Being a traditional St Ives fishermans cottage, they are often a little smaller and layouts/stairs more quirky and steeper than in more modern buildings, but packed full of character. We always try to be as open and honest as possible, and try to give an accurate representation of properties within our photos and hope that we have achieved that in this case. We are delighted to hear that you liked 32 The Digey and its fantastic location, despite bedroom 2 being a little smaller than expected, and thank you for taking the time to send in your comments. Tanya, Customer Services.

We had a wonderful stay at this cottage - the pictures don't do it justice, it's very spacious and stylishly decorated, as well as being extremely comfortable. With the best beach in St Ives just a minute away (you can hear the sea at night!) you couldn't ask for more. Highly recommended.

Sep 2015

Charming but suitable for a young family rather than two couples.
