December 2018

Fabulous property. Small but with everything we needed for our long weekend. Very comfortable and we would definitely come back.

November 2018

We loved our stay at Hideaway - The Digey, and will most certainly book it again! The fact that it is mere steps to The Digey Food Room is a wonderful plus, and being so near to Fore Street was convenient to all our needs. We definitely recommend this cottage to couples or families with children. They, too, will want to return!

September 2018

A lovely cottage in a superb location, close to beaches and amenities, perfect for a car free holiday.

September 2018

The Hideaway was a cute and cosy cottage, with comfortable beds and furnishings in a very central location in lovely St Ives. We'd happily stay again.

July 2018

This is one of the nicest places in one could wish to stay in when you come to St Ives. Central, but quiet, it is a cosy home from home - warm, friendly, welcoming. Recommended for guests who plan to sample the many good restaurants in town as the kitchen does not lend itself for producing extensive meals.

March 2018

Great cottage in a central location for all the fun and delights of St Ives .

January 2018

A beautiful cottage right in the heart of St Ives. My 8 year old twins loved it.

October 2017

Great cottage in a great location.we will be back soon .

Nicely furnished, taking full advantage of StIves light with large windows. Deceptively larger than one expects with carefully planned layout.

September 2017

Great cottage ,great location, we will be back again soon .

April 2017

We love this house! The location could not be more convenient - close to Porthmeor, the Harbour, and the shops. Although it is tiny, it does not feel cramped. The sitting room is cosy, there are two excellent showers, and the bedrooms are very comfortable. We have been coming back year on year and are planning to continue!

April 2017

Perfect place to stay,right in the center of st.ives,once inside the cottage,you are tucked away from noise,,lovely and quiet

March 2017

Delicious cottage in an extremely convenient location, close to shops and beaches, and yet The Digey is quiet and safely lit at night. Has two bathrooms which is wonderful! The kitchen has every utensil you can imagine. Sweet stable door and lovely decor, luxurious curtains and wonderful soft pillows. The bedroom next to the lounge has the most comfortable double bed ever known!. This cottage is lovely, full of character but modern too. You won't regret staying here. It is lovely and cosy in the winter and great to take your pasty back to, have a drink and then you are straight back out!

February 2017

The Hideaway is a great cottage located perfectly for all that St Ives has to offer.

December 2016

Location is excellent. A stones throw from the main high street and 3 minutes from Porthmeor beach where we spend most of our time surfing and body boarding. Facilities were great for a family of four with two older boys 14/16. Three story cottage with the two lads sleeping in separate rooms on the top floor with their own bathroom was excellent. Double bedroom on second floor lovely. Bathrooms excellent. Kitchen tidy and compact with everything required to cook meals at home. Would recommend highly.

July 2016

A charming, well maintained, smaller sized and comfortable cottage in a good location.

July 2015

A wonderful location, five minutes walk to the porthmeor beach, the Tate the harbour and some good restaurants.A pretty, compact cottage.

July 2015

Hideaway is just lovely: cosy, comfortable, beautifully furnished, and right in the centre of St Ives. We have been coming for five years now and have every intention to continue the tradition!
