Description from owner

Description

Ancient Lights is a stone built fisherman's cottage which has recently been carefully restored to give a lovely bright vintage feel. The cottage is independently owned and run and looked after with love. It is situated in a pedestrian only street which is quiet despite being a minute from the main beaches and town.

There is a car park just behind the cottage. The car park is known as Barnoon Car Park and is run by St Ives Council. You can google the name of the car park and the current list of charges will come up. It is a large car park with plenty of space. You can pay for your stay in the car park using your mobile phone which makes it much easier

The main bedroom has super views of the St Nicholas Chapel and the sea.

Outside is an large elevated terrace with a table and chairs - lovely to enjoy sunny barbeques after a day at the beach

There is a well positioned outside tap to hose down sandy children and dogs !

One well behaved dog is very welcome

Location description from owner

The England region

Cornwall is a beautiful place to visit both for those travelling from the UK or farther afield.

Downalong

St Ives is famed for is beautiful natural light and no day will ever be the same. The beaches have white sand and the sea is as blue as you will find in the Caribbean. There is so much to do for everyone in St Ives whatever the weather - you will not be able to do it all in one trip and we find that our guests come back year after year for more !

“A chilled out beach holiday stay in a cosy cottage”

Reviewed 7 Apr 2013

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.
