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.
