Blue Surf Cottage
Downalong, St Ives

£490 - £1360 per week

Located in the heart of St Ives, Blue Surf Cottage is a traditional bolt hole, perfect for couples and small families. Sat on The Digey, one of St Ives most well known cobbled streets, you are seconds away from the popular Porthmeor beach, where you can watch some of the most memorable sunsets, and swim amongst the surfers. This cosy cottage is set over three floors, sleeping five guests, and is fully equipped for dining in, or simply using as a base while out exploring. The ground floor, open plan, kitchen/sitting area is ideal for gathering together and enjoying a few drinks, while planning your next trip out, with the stable door open allowing the sea breeze to drift in on warmer days. A few steps along the cobbled streets will lead you to an array of shops, from branded clothing to local memorabilia, along with varied, local cuisine to try throughout your stay. The activities are never-ending, including boat trips out to Seal Island, browsing local art at The Tate and many other galleries, and a throwing taster session at Leach Pottery.
