Hope Cottage
Downalong, St Ives

£456 - £1201 per week

Positioned just off the iconic, cobbled street of The Digey, in the heart of St Ives, is where you'll discover the charming Hope Cottage. This traditional, Cornish, fisherman’s cottage is perfect for both a family getaway or for couples looking to escape the hustle and bustle of life. Do not forget your trusted four-legged friend who will also be warmly welcomed. Sleeping up to four guests, Hope cottage offers reverse level living, laid out over two floors and has been sympathetically and lovingly restored by the owners, retaining original features throughout. On the top floor you will find the light and bright open plan living area, with well-equipped kitchen, the perfect spot to cook up a delicious first day breakfast or evening meal, which can be enjoyed around the family dining-table, before you sink into the cosy sofa and settle down to watch a film. Meanwhile the sun-drenched courtyard creates a wonderful place to relax and recharge with a tipple, before retreating downstairs to the ground floor bedrooms, where comfortable beds await, for a peaceful night’s slumber, ready for the next days adventures.

The cobbled streets lined with a collection of shops, galleries and cafes will lead you down to the harbourfront within a few minutes’ stroll, or Porthmeor Beach in the other direction, making Hope Cottage an ideal retreat to embrace everything that this bustling harbour town has to offer. For larger parties, why not book Chapel House, sleeping up to two guests and located only a stones throw away from Hope Cottage.
