' Barefoot ' cottage at 21 The Digey is a 2 bedroom listed Fisherman's cottage right in the CENTER of St Ives which has just been redecorated and renovated ( Nov 2014) . The thick granite walls make it very cosy in winter, but also help keep it cool in the summer. It is also fully centrally heated.

Downstairs is open plan with the lounge diner, kitchen and shower and W/C. Fast Wifi. Large Smart TV with free Netflix ( 500 plus free films ). There is also a futon chair/bed for an extra guest.

Upstairs are two bedrooms, a King size double ( with TV and DVD player) and twin singles. All the beds and bedding are new

The Digey is one of the nicest cobbled streets in St Ives, it is practically car free, and links the Harbour and Fore street ( the main shopping street with lots of gift shops, great restaurants and ice cream/ fudge shops ), with Porthmeor beach, a long stretch of sand where you can go for a walk, do a bit of rock pooling or even have a go at surfing. Turn either way out of Barefoot and you are only a minute or two from a beach

We have tried hard to provide most things you might need, including : Free fast Wifi, all bed linen, towels, cot, high chair, stair gate, a very well equipped kitchen ( a pet hate of mine is going on holiday to discover there is nothing but a few blunt knives), washer dryer, iron and ironing board and a new Smart TV with free Netflix. Almost everything was new in 2013/14.

Our aim is to make the cottage comfortable, with many modern amenities, and yet retain the original character.

If you like St Ives as much as we do then we hope that our cottage is an ideal base to enjoy a great holiday in one of the best seaside towns anywhere !

The Cornwall region

St Ives is a lovely fishing village which both retains its traditional character yet has many many restaurants,galleries,craft shops and kiosks selling Cornish ice cream,as well as pasties !

Not only great in Summer, St Ives has loads to offer all year round, a winter morning walk in the wind along the front watching the 'big seas' and dodging the odd wave that comes over the harbour wall followed by a drink in a cafe or pub is great fun !

The Cornish Riviera has so much to offer, great walks, amazing scenery, an abundance of wildlife ( seals are regular visitors to the Harbour and you can take a boat ride to see 100's of seals basking in the sun, you may even see dolphins), lots of attractions like Flambards theme park or just somewhere to get away from the rat race.

The St Ives school of art was home to Barbara Hepworth,Bernard Leach and now has the famous Tate St Ives.

Nearby attractions include country houses with splendid gardens,The Minack open air theatre,Flambards theme park,Lands end and some great coastal path walks.

St Ives

Downalong is a warren of windy cobbled streets in the (in my opinion) best bit of St Ives.The cottages were mainly fisherman's houses and retain much character. Love lane, Rose Lane, Fish Street ,Teetotal street and even Virgin Street are all nearby street names.

Downalong is mid way between the 3 main beaches and close to the shops,pubs and restaurants.

No hard walk up the hill after your day in the town or on the beach back to your accommodation if you stay in Downalong !

"Lovely stay in St Ives"

Great little cottage on a cobbled street tucked away between the Tate and Fore Street. Derek sent us lots of recommendations and tips beforehand so we were well prepped for our stay. Also when we arrived there were scones waiting for us! The cottage is well equipped and homely - we didn't want to leave at the end of the week.

The cottage is only a couple of minutes' walk from the bay and all the restaurants and inns, etc. The coastal footpath starts a few minutes down the road.

Overall, really good base for a week's exploring, and cosy enough for rainy evenings in too.

"The owner Derek could not be more helpful."

I booked to stay at 21 The Digey earlier this year ready for our stay there in September. I couldn't have found the booking more easier as Derek was very helpful and friendly, he also gave us lots of useful information regarding the area itself. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances I had to cancel my booking just a few weeks before our stay. Derek could not have been nicer about the situation and refunded my deposit in full once another booking was made. I was very surprised at this kind gesture and it shows what a lovely, straightforward owner he is as normally people would make money through situations such as this. I couldn't have found Derek a nicer person to book through and I will most definitely be booking through him in the future and would definitely recommend him to others.

"Nice place, really convenient location"

Nice place, really convenient locations, equipped with most of the things you'd need. Helpful owner. Clean, comfortable beds. Parking a bit of a problem - but then it always is in St Ives - expect to have to pay a weekly charge in the car park five minutes away up a hill.

"Lovely quaint Cottage - Fab location!"

A beautiful cottage that met all our expectations and more. Right from the initial booking, the owner, Derek, was very helpful and answered all our questions very promptly. The cottage is lovely and was perfect for our family of four, plus Willow our Puggle friend! You could not ask for a better location, 1 min you are on Porthmoer beach, a couple of minutes the other way and you are in Fore Street, the main shopping street, not far from the harbour.
We would not hesitate to book again, in fact we are already looking at booking again same time next year.
Highly recommended.

"St Ives at its best"

The overall experience of booking the property was really easy helped by the fact that the owners were excellent to deal with.
Being a regular St Ives visitor I can recommend its location, very easy for my wife and myself to get around. Ease of access to the property was good and it was available on our arrival. The property met all our needs and gave us what we wanted.
Great holiday experience.

A beautiful little cottage, in a fab central, but quiet location. Very cosy & well equipped. Beds were very comfy. The string of feline visitors made our holiday even more perfect! … More
