A modernised fisherman's cottage situated in the Downalong, the oldest residential part of St.Ives. This cosy 2 bedroom cottage is ideally situated in a quiet street but right in the heart of the town, with its quaint cobbled streets, art galleries (including the Tate Gallery), restaurants and shops. All St.Ives' beautiful sandy beaches with water sports schools and award winning cafes are a short stroll from the cottage, as is the busy harbour, where fishermen still land their daily catch, and boat rides are available to see the seals or to try your hand at fishing.
It is an ideal choice for a family holiday or a break away for couples, and well behaved dogs are welcome to stay too so they can also enjoy the fantastic walks on the beaches and the coastal paths (and being with you of course!)
The cottage is well equipped for your comfort. Downstairs is the lounge with 2 large sofas, TV, DVD and CD/radio. The open plan Kitchen/diner has an electric cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave and washer/drier. There is a dining table with seating for 4 people. The modern bathroom includes a bath with shower over, wash basin and wc, as well as a heated towel rail.
The stairs to the next floor are quite steep. There are two bedrooms upstairs. The main bedroom has a double bed with memory foam mattress. The second has two single beds. Both bedrooms have their own washbasins.
The property is heated with thermostatic electric radiators
