Duck Down is a small but perfectly formed cottage in a quiet, yet central location in the heart of St Ives. It has comfortable furnishings and is a great, cosy retreat for two. There is so much to do in the immediate area and with both Porthmeor and Porthgwidden beach just moments from your door, it is an ideal spot for surfers and beach devotees! In the colder months you can cosy down with your loved one after a day of exploring. You will have plenty to do during your stay, whatever time of year you choose.

Entrance

Kitchen/dining/sitting room

electric oven and hob, fridge with freezer compartment, washing machine, TV, Amazon Home device, sofa, woodburner effect electric fire.

Bedroom

double bed, en suite with WC, basin, bath with shower over.

Additional information

Duck Down is a very nice little place to stay for a couples retreat. It acts as a very good base to come back too, after a long day of exploring. If you plan to stay in your accommodation for long periods, it maybe a bit small for that. Also if you are a person who is very tall, you might find yourself bending through doorways and the shower might be a bit small in height (I'm 5ft 7inch and my head almost touched the ceiling in the shower.) Otherwise these are small little things and overall we were completly satisfied with our stay in the Duck Down. The warming gift was a pleasant surprise after a long day of traveling.

Duck Down & the Aspects team made a dream come true. What a delight it was for me to stay somewhere as perfect as Duck Down & to know that the Aspects team support is just as heart warming. A special memory for ever.

Duck Down is a wonderful and beautiful accommodation. The aspect Hoildays made my stay wonderful and welcoming. It’s in a great location in St Ives and good short walking distances around the area. I would highly recommend aspects Hoildays and the accommodation and I would love to come back again.

Myself and my partner had a long weekend away for my 30th. I’ve been coming to St Ives since I was a child but this is the first time I have stayed in Duck Down and has to be one of the nicest places Ive stayed whilst on holiday here. It was a lovely clean cottage decorated to a high standard with all the appliances you could need. The cottage was in a brilliant location, very close to shops, restaurants and beaches. It was the little touches that made it better. We had a welcome food package that included bread, milk, tea, biscuits and wine to name just a few things. I would highly recommend this property.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Duck Down. It is cosy and intimate and in a great location for the centre of St Ives. The little extras like the welcome basket and handy beach chairs were a nice touch.
