St Nicholas Cottage Downalong, St Ives

£1342 - £3323

Wow! St Nicholas Cottage is a truly magnificent property in the heart of St Ives, which caters for parties of up to ten. Once inside, it's apparent how much of a treasure it really is. As well as being fabulously interior designed, from top to bottom, it boasts sea views, a parking space and is just metres away from Porthgwidden Beach - you could even stroll to the beach with your morning cup of tea. Whisk yourself and your friends and family away, to come to together and enjoy this warm, welcoming and elegant property, where there are many beautiful features waiting to be discovered. St Nicholas Cottage is perfect for extended family, special celebrations or smaller parties looking for that something special.

There are five beautiful bedrooms, all very comfortable and some have both sea views and en suites. There is also a snug, with sofa bed, where the children can get together and watch their favourite film, while the rest of you enjoy a bottle, or two, in the sitting area downstairs. On other nights you can all get together outside and cook up a storm for barbeque suppers and evening sundowners. You'll also find some of the most delectable restaurants in the town, which are just moments away from the front door. After a day of soaking up the sun on the beach, you'll be so excited to open the doors of your temporary home, put your feet up and relax even more! We believe that St Nicholas Cottage is going to be an extremely popular choice with guests, so make sure you get booked up quickly!

Our third consecutive visit to this delightful cottage. It was a good fit for three generations of us. The new look is impressive, and gives an airy, spacious feel. Easy access to the perfect family beach, the harbour, and "Norway" - the convenient grocery shop. Pleased that we have secured a booking this year- our fingers were crossed. We love St Ives - it's our 10th visit overall. St Nicholas ticks all the boxes. And it looks even better this year.
