Tykky Dyw Downalong, St Ives

£438 - £1168

Tykky Dyw (pronounced 'Ticky Dew') is a gorgeous cottage tucked away in a beautiful central location and is an ideal summer holiday spot, but also a perfect cosy hideout in the winter months - and it's also dog friendly! Although you are in a private location, you can step out of your retreat and within seconds, you'll be right on the harbour front, close to all amenities including the stunning golden sands of Porthmeor beach, which is only a five minute walk away. The property is set over four floors, with quite a quirky layout, has lots of character and is well equipped to boot.

At the front of the cottage there is a small patio area with bistro table and chairs and to the rear, on the ground floor there is a small shared courtyard with your own bench, so you can make the best of the sunshine. The brilliant snug room allows the children to watch what they want, while the rest of the party have some quiet time together. It's an all round winner! "Tykky Dyw" is Cornish for "Butterfly".
