£474 - £1308 per week

Victory Cottage is perfectly placed in the centre of town at the end of The Digey, so as you can imagine, you have everything at your fingertips.

Had a wonderful weeks stay at Victory Cottage, I loved to sit on the kitchen window seat and watch the world go by. It was bigger than we expected and my son loved the attic room to get away from his sister! The beach storage room was brilliant for storingo your paddle boards etc.

Had a wonderful weeks stay at Victory Cottage, I loved to sit on the kitchen window seat and watch the world go by. It was bigger than we expected and my son loved the attic room to get away from his sister! The beach storage room was brilliant for storingo your paddle boards etc.

We really enjoyed our stay at Victory Cottage. The location is fantastic. It’s a comfy stay and has all you need.

Victory Cottage is centrally located, perfect for all aspects of your holiday. So good, booked to visit again later in the year.

Victory cottage is a delightful little gem. Nestling inconspicuously on the corner of Fore Street and The Digey, it’s in the perfect location that combines closeness to the beaches with being in the centre of the hustle and bustle of the shops, which are right on its doorstep. The furnishings and fittings are first class, and there is some beautiful local artwork to enjoy too. The piece de resistance is the delightful little top floor sitting room which has a beautiful picture- window view of the harbour. We loved it!

Lovely place, photos really don’t do it justice !!!

Perfect location right in the centre even though it was busy we was never disturbed by any noise. The top room had fantastic sea views a really nice room just to have a relax in. The beds are very comfortable and a good size Bathroom was a good size and loved the underfloor heating. The apartment was very clean ( really important in the current climate) sad no welcome basket but totally understand with COVID and there was plenty of cleaning essentials . We would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic holiday again in st ives at Victory Cottage. Brilliant location with very comfortable beds. Thanks Aspects team

Aspects are an excellent company. There were issues regarding booking which were beyond their control but they dealt with them very professionally.

The cottage was clean , comfortable and homely and although some of the rooms were small good use was made of the space, the beds were extremely comfortable, and although in the middle of the hustle and bustle We weren’t particularly disturbed by noise. The room on the top floor has fabulous views of the harbour and the Porthminster beach , lovely Spot for a glass of wine in the evening Watching the sunset. For us the only negative was the shower door very very small if your over a size 14 or a male with a sizeable chest !! Thank you for the lovely welcome pack, we will definitely return to this cottage

The cottage is really well located and the kitchen and bathroom are lovely. The rest unfortunately is a little tired and could do with a bit of attention. We found everything we needed in there.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments, and we are very sorry to hear that you had felt that there were some areas needing a bit of attention. Victory Cottage had met all required standards, with any necessary/routine maintenance being carried out as expected when we had last inspected this property; however, a lot can happen to a property in a short space of time, so thank you for bringing this to our attention, so that we can investigate your comments and pass the feedback on to the property owners. It sounds like you still had a fantastic time here and we're glad that you liked the great location. Thanks again for your feedback. Tanya, Customer Services

Fantastic location to shops and all beaches. Don’t be put off by central location, the seagulls are noisier than people. It’s suitable for 2 couples or 2 adults and 2 kids. Sofa bed not suitable to sleep on. Very well equipped, oven, microwave washer dryer. No dishwasher. No outside space to dry things but there’s an airer and space downstairs. Not suitable for people who struggle with stairs. Considering location, property is spacious.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments; the location really is great, being so close to all the great things on offer in St Ives. We're glad that you liked it! We are sorry to hear that you found the sofa bed uncomfortable for sleeping on. It can be quite tricky to find one that works equally as well for seating and sleeping, and with everyone having different preferences on mattresses as well, so we are sorry to hear that it was not to your preference. For now, we will monitor comments to keep an eye on guest’s preferences over the coming months. The stairs are certainly something to consider, with the property being set over 3 floors and the stairs to bedroom 3 being quite steep, but with so much space for a cottage in such a central location, we hope that you found that it still worked well for all of your family. Thanks again. Tanya, Customer Services

Excellent location , friendly and speedy service from all at aspects. House was ideal for our holiday and it allowed us to make the most of very moment, nearly claimed squatters rights as didn’t want to leave

We were delighted by the house and by everything in it. We had a wonderful week and would love to go back and stay at Victory Cottage.

Lovely decorated cottage just off Fore Street. The location was fantastic. I was worried about noise from Fore Street but we hardly heard anything. The views from the upstairs room was lovely. Well presented cottage and the dog loved it too.

An amazing cottage, wonderful holiday.
