"A chilled out beach holiday stay in a cosy cottage"

Downalong was a lovely little cottage that was just right for us. There were 2 of us and a friend came along to stay for a couple of nights and we also had our little border terrier with us. We were literally 1 minute away from the high street of St Ives with its cute boutiques and restaurants and the beach was the same distance to walk. We had a great time just walking on the beach and the view from St Nicholas Chapel was fantastic. The food was great and the atmosphere very relaxed and family oriented. I would definitely recommend the cottage as the location was great and it was cosy and welcoming.
