6 church place, perfect location and every aspect about our stay easy and enjoyable.

We had a fantastic stay at 6 Church Place. The location can’t be beaten, just seconds to the harbour and the beach. The cottage is very well presented and welcoming with everything we needed to enjoy our holiday. We will definitely return. It was really useful to be able to unload all luggage at the cottage door too.

Absolutely loved our stay with my parents at church place, so close to the harbour, we’ve been coming to Stives for years and this is one of the best places we’ve stayed, great location, really quiet surprisingly! which was great for the dogs. They also loved that we were on the beach in a hop and skip. Perfect size for 4 people for a week, beds were comfy! And we would deffo book again.

Just returned from a lovely stay at 6 church place , the cottage was cosy and comfortable, Nicely furnished with lovely little touches, like the books, games provided and essentials on arrival We would definitely return

6 Church Place is in a fantastic location, literally 30 seconds from the Harbour beach. The famous Sloop pub is stumbling distance away, and the Balancing Eel chippy is facing the cottage.

You can unload your bags directly outside or park in the Sloop car park 10 metres away.

The rooms are large for a Downalong cottage and all very comfortable. Nice bed linen and towels, too. The kitchen is very well equipped and we cooked Christmas dinner there. I'd like to see a washing machine/dryer instead of a dishwasher. The shower was hot and powerful.

A negative during the colder months is the lack of central heating and radiators. Whilst there is a lovely, remote control fire in the lounge and portable electric heaters in all rooms, we did find it a little chilly. Plus, drying wet clothing is an issue (there's one heated clothes dryer). To be fair, this probably wouldn't be an issue in the Spring or Summer.

Thank you for your lovely review. The cottage does not have central heating however, each of the upstairs rooms are equipped with a portable radiator and in the lounge there is also a gas fire. Though the heating is not something we've received any comments on in the past, having now received this feedback we will be closely monitoring this. We will also forward your comments regarding making space for a washing machine along to the owners, for them to take into consideration for future improvements. We're glad the property had everything you needed to make a lovely Christmas dinner and we hope to welcome you back soon. Phoebe, Customer Services

6 Church Place is a cosy little cottage right in the heart of St.Ives. It is so well positioned for everything that you might need. 1 minute from the beach. The stairs are little steep up to the top bedroom but ok. The little snug on the first floor is a great little space for chilling quietly or just for an extra small space. We enjoyed staying in 6 church place and will definitely return.

Had a great holiday in 6 Church Place. Location was brilliant & there was nothing we needed that wasn’t already in this lovely little cottage. Hoping to book again for next year & can’t wait to go again already.

Brilliant location and very cute cottage. Has very comfy beds and beautiful decor. Would definitely book again.

Fantastic location and the perfect property for 2 couples to explore St Ives. Steep stairs within the property, which wasn’t a problem for us but worth being aware of. Very clean and well presented with comfy beds. Would happily stay here again.

What a gorgeous property. Comfortable beds and furnishings. Very well equipped. Perfect location. Couldn’t find a single fault with it. Would happily stay here again.

Perfect locatIon, seconds from the harbour and main high street. Pet friendly which is added bonus, downstairs compact and comfortable bedrooms excellent. As was shower, Overall excellent cottage would suit family of two adults and two children with added benefit of playroom.

A fantastic holiday cottage in a great part of St Ives

There was an issue stepping out onto the road immediately outside due to contractors vehicles speeding up and down the narrow road.A real health and safety issue,please use extreme caution!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are sorry to hear that you experienced that. It is certainly not the norm for vehicles to be speeding up and down that road, it isn't a busy road and is only used to access the car park and the row of properties along there. Usually, vehicles go through there very slowly, so it sounds like you had a very unfortunate and exceptional experience with this; possibly some contractors who don't usually work in the area. We will keep an eye out on any further feedback though. Thanks for letting us know. Tanya, Customer Services

6 Church View is a beautiful property in a perfect location to access the town and beaches. We felt very comfortable with our two little dogs and just a stone’s throw from the harbour beach. The cottage is modern and very clean. There is no washing machine, which would have been useful with the inclement weather, rather than a dishwasher, which wasn’t used. Not much passing footfall, which was nice. If you have mobility issues, the stairs may be a bit too steep. We had a great week here & will book it again in the future.

Lovely house to stay in. Everything you need is extremely close by. It was very clean, tidy and well equipped. Beds were very comfy too. Stairs are steep but that’s typical of the houses in this area. Would definitely come back and recommend.

6 Church Place offered our family (including a seven year old child and a small dog) the perfect holiday home for our home in St. Ives. The location is excellent, right in town and a few short steps to the harbour. The place was clean and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils etc to enable us to cook our own meals. We were so pleased with it, that during the second day of our holiday we booked 6 Church Place for our next break in St. Ives. Highly recommended, especially for dog owners who want the opportunity to stay in town rather than the outskirts.

This is our 2nd holiday with Aspects holidays , we have been very satisfied with both bookings from a very friendly and efficient team , we thoroughly recommend Aspect holidays , Cornwall.

We had a wonderful week at this cottage. The location is amazing for everything St Ives has to offer. There was plenty of space for our family of 3 - parents and a young adult daughter. We had our dogs with us and it was lovely to have early morning walks on the beaches. It is also just a short walk to the beach which is dog friendly all day.

We had a fantastic holiday, one of the best weeks for weather we’ve ever had in st Ives. The cottage was lovely, perfect for a family of four, fantastic location, directly opposite the best fish and chip shop in St Ives. Overall a lovely little cottage.

Nick, Alison, Beau, Evan and Peaches (the dog)

What an amazing cottage! It is so close to the pubs and shops, brilliant size and has all the amenities you require. When you open your bedroom window you can hear the waves which was amazing. The beds and couches were very comfy and the shower was great. I have already booked to stay here again next year.

Such a great location, and a cosy, well equipped cottage. The fire is lovely, the snug was very popular with the children.

It had everything we needed and felt like a really indulgent holiday.

A lovely cottage and just a hop ,skip and a jump from everything st.ives as to offer. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at 6, church place and of course Beautiful St. Ives

Brilliantly located and appointed cottage which is comfortable and homely. Would definitely recommend x

We stayed at 6 church place , this was an ideal location as l have difficulty walking long distances , it was within easy reach of beaches , cafes ,restaurants and shops. It had all the comforts of home really beautiful. I would highly recommend this pretty cottage with Aspect Holidays Mrs Peake of Crewe.

Perfect location for the town and beaches. No need to use the car at anytime.

Lovely cottage in excellent location for all that St Ives has to offer, and St Ives has lots to offer.

We stayed at 6 Church Place for our summer holiday. It is in an excellent location, close to the town and also easily accessible for the beaches. We did not hear any noise from deliveries or from the Sloop late at night as we worried we might. The property is well equipped and very comfortable, would love to stay again.

Perfect location. Well equipped kitchen. Children liked the Nintendo. Lovely cottage.

Lovely cottage in a perfect location, would stay again
