About this location

The Cornwall region

Cornwall is a wonderful county and St Ives is its 'gem'. Situated in the Gulf Stream it has its own micro climate. Palm trees and golden sands complement the sparkling turquoise seas where dolphins and seals can be seen playing!

St Ives

Downalong is the old fisherman's quater of St Ives and is a maze of interesting old streets and alleyways leading to the fabulous beaches that surround the town or down to the working harbour where the boats still come in every morning with their catch. Palm trees, golden sands and crystal clear water, gulf stream climate, plenty of attractions both in St Ives itself and surrounding areas. Ideal for art lovers and walkers - actually - plenty for everyone with no fear of becoming bored! The Tate Gallery, Barbara Hepworth Museum, Bernard Leach's Pottery, The Minack Theatre (outdoor theatre situated right on the side of the cliff!) - to name but a few - are all fabulous attractions in and around St Ives.

"Lovely, characterful cottage in perfect location"

Lovel characterful cottage with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The little luxuries such as a drench shower and Jacuzzi bath with underflooring heating etc really do make this a special find. Booking this cottage was so easy with the friendly owners going above and beyond to help with directions a list of good places to go and recommendations.

Great location to all especially if you like the beaches.
