from £30 /night help
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
' Sandals ' cottage was originally a fisherman's cottage ( hence Fish St ! ) and has been been renovated in October 2014. The oldest house in St Ives is just over the road from the cottage
A minutes walk from Sandals is the lovely harbour and harbour beach, just a minute further on is Fore Street with all it's gift shops, restaurants, ice cream parlours etc. A few minutes further on is Porthmeor beach, the main beach in St Ives, a beautiful long expanse of sand where you can surf, paddle, sunbathe, go rock pooling or explore the Tate
Open plan downstairs is the living room, fast Wifi, large smart TV with free Netflix (over 500 free films to watch), a full metal frame sofa bed plus 2 armchairs, and the very well equipped kitchen with seating for six
The bedrooms upstairs are a double, again with a new ( 2014) Smart TV with Netflix and plenty of storage room. There is also a twin single room. Both are newly decorated, double glazed and very comfortable
The following are all included; Linen, towels, some beach toys, free fast Wifi, cot, high chair, stair gate, full central heating and an extremely well equipped kitchen.
3 Fish Street is in a great location in Downalong, the best part of St Ives being right in the centre of what St Ives has to offer, no long hills to climb after a day at the beach or a night out !
The cottage has just about everything you could want for a family or couples holiday alike, as shown by the Tripadvisor reviews previous guests have been kind enough to leave for it.

The Cornwall region
Saint 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 plenty to offer all year round, a windy winters morning walk along the front watching the 'big seas' , 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 at Seal Island if you are lucky you may even see dolphins), lots of attractions like Flambards theme park or just somewhere to get away from it all.
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.
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 ,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.
The other big advantage of being so central is there is no long walk up the hill after your day in the town or on the beach when you want to return to your accommodation.

"Great location,beautifully decorated,very well maintained."
We loved the cottage,we were greeted with scones,jam and cream,what a lovely personal touch! Its in a great location,close to everything.It was spotlessly clean,lovely white bedding,fluffy pillows and comfy duvets all very important to me! All the info i received in welcome pack was exactly as we found it.I loved the fact that it has a beach feel to it although modern at the same time with great artwork and funky lights. There were five of us staying and i would say although it sleeps 6 i think it probably works better with four,thats a very persnal point of view which is probably made on the fact my eldest son is 6 foot 3 so finding him on the sofa bed downstairs makes everything look a little smaller than reality!!! I would highly recommend this beautiful cottage and corresponding with the owner through email has been quick, efficient and a pleasure! A lovely experience!!!!
