Very good central location. We live in old cottage so used to steep steps and low headroom so may not be suitable for young children. As the kitchen is in basement it is dark but again old cottage in narrow streets which contribute to character of St Ives. Very helpful to have garage space close by. We would stay again .

The Tate is a must; something everyone should visit at least once, or simply relax and enjoy the view from one of our many self-catering beach-front apartments. Most of the town and all it has to offer is a level walk from Porthmeor, making it many of our guests' first choice of location. Many Porthmeor properties offer parking and most have superb beach views and balconies.

A great holiday property in a prime location for Porthmeor Beach but also minutes from the harbour. Accommodates 5 adults easily and we have already booked it for this September our third stay at this property.

Very good central location. We live in old cottage so used to steep steps and low headroom so may not be suitable for young children. As the kitchen is in basement it is dark but again old cottage in narrow streets which contribute to character of St Ives. Very helpful to have garage space close by. We would stay again .

Great location!

Excellent property with an even better location in the Heart of St Ives. Parking Is extremely useful, but tight so pay attention to size restrictions. Would absolutely stay again , and recommend to anyone with young families. The house had a Lovely little kitchen with everything needed. 2 minute walk to all the local shops. 5 minute walk to the Harbour beach, which the kids loved. And a short walk the other way was Porthmeor beach so again ideal location.

If travelling with more than 2 people would definitely recommend Pre booking pubs and restaurants with Covid restrictions. Would definitely give the Italian cafe on the harbour front a try.

Could do with a TV or radio in the kitchen. Stairs can be challenging but the location is spot on... seconds from Porthmeor beach and especially with parking so close and accessible. Mr & Mrs Ayres

Another lovely stay at 18 The Digey. We've stayed here lots of times, mainly because it's clean, well equipped, comfortable and has lots of character. It's also close to the beach and the shops. Having a safe parking space close by is an added bonus.

Would highly recommend this cottage.

Fantastic location and great facilities. Would stay again.

Many traditional fisherman's cottages here are built from granite rock which can hold on to moisture. The property is usually kept well ventilated, so keeps the risk of damp to a minimum, but unfortunately, it seems that after several months of the property being closed up during lock down, quite a strong smell resulted. Your experience is not usual for this property and whilst the owners include a note about the history and the risk of damp from time to time, they manage it as best as they can, without having work carried out that will completely lose the character of the property. We have since visited the property to check on your comments about it not being child-friendly and agreed that the stairs should be highlighted and be a consideration to those with young children or members of the party who are less mobile, as they are very steep and partially open. We have now added a note to the property description and the bookings team would be more than happy to discuss the layout of the property to anyone that may be looking to book it and has any concerns about the suitability.

A very nice cottage in a great location for either the surf beach or the harbour. Very well equipped and comfortable we had 5 adults and it didn’t feel like we were on top of each other. The parking space in the garage next to bumbles tea room is the big advantage.

Have been visiting No.18 for many years now and will keep coming back. Great location , good facilities. And Aspects have a great 24/7 back up service that we needed.

Lovely cottage location wise but overall presentation of the interior on the sparse side. Don’t get me wrong we loved our stay but next time we’ll try some other place. Parking space also a little more than a tight squeeze.

It was great to hear how much you enjoyed the fantastic location of this property. We offer a wide range of properties that we hope will meet the different budgets and the differing tastes, needs and requirements of individuals and always aim to be as honest and transparent as possible with our descriptions and photos to show the style of property, furnishings and decor clearly. We hope that we have done that in this instance. It is a shame that you had found it to be on the sparse side for you, but we would be happy to have a chat and try to help find an alternative for your next visit, based on your preferences. We hope to see you back here in beautiful St Ives again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Excellent rustic cottage in a perfect position, quiet and well equipped, the narrow stairways will keep you fit! Well worth it having the parking space.

An excellant stay, lovely house. Location near beach and town was ideal. Only negative was the sofa being uncomfortable.

Fabulous, comfy, spacious, yet cosy, cottage, super location - a short stroll to beaches, harbour and shops. Bonus of two bathrooms and a parking space.

Comfortable and surprisingly spacious cottage in a fabulous location. We had a lovely week staying here - partly due to the great accommodation and partly due to the fabulous February sunshine!

The cottage is a lovely spacious place to stay, in a quiet street, but the best thing close to Porthmeor beach.

Fabulous location with added bonus of car park within two minutes of house and beach a few more steps, near harbour and town, had a great week, booked this house two years running

We love St Ives and the cottage was a quaint fisherman's cottage with lots of character and charm. It was central to the main street, harbour and bays.

Cosy cottage in excellent location. Office staff friendly and helpful

Number 18 feels like what it is, a cosy family home, simply shared with others! 1 minute from private secure parking spot and Porthmeor beach. Full of original features particularly in the kitchen. Been staying there since 2005 and will most certainly be back.

We enjoyed a wonderful holiday with our family, the house was very spacious, we have re booked already for next year!!!

A very comfortable stay with a great location a short walk from beaches,harbour front and eateries.

Good central location for surfers and shoppers alike

Perfect location, stress free parking made for a perfect holiday

The accommodation was good and had all the necessary equipment for a good comfortable week even if the weather out side was not so good Sits in an ideal position
