Lovely property my family really enjoyed staying here for the week. It’s in a great location, easy to access the beach and the shops.

Beautiful bolt hole away from the crowds but close enough to join in when you want to. Probably one of the best equipped kitchens we’ve seen if you’re staying home to eat with fabulous fittings and decor. We loved this little home ??

Lovely, well appointed cottage in a wonderful location close to the town and beaches.

We had the best time staying in Skippers Den. The location was perfect - quiet and tucked away but also central to St.Ives and great for exploring other amazing places. The house was extremely well equipped, spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. If we’re ever in St.Ives again, we will definitely be staying here!

We have stayed in Aspects properties in St. Ives over a dozen times and Skipper's Den rates as one of the top ones for us. It's in a fantastic location with an easy drop off of bags in either Porthmeor Square or the Sloop car park. It's situated within a secure courtyard off the small lanes of Downalong. The property is really comfortable and very well appointed. We felt that it was bigger than it appeared in the photos. The beds are really comfortable and the shower is perfect. We'll be staying here again!
