It was our first time visiting St Ives and Downlong Cottage was in the perfect central location for us to explore the town by foot. It's a beautiful cottage on a classic St Ives cobbled road. Our room was quiet, clean, bright and airy, with an enormous and very comfortable bed. With the window open we could hear the sea...

The totally perfect St Ives experience - we loved staying in the fisherman's quarter and Downlong is the perfect location. The facilities are lovely, the room was great, the hosts were fabulous - nothing was too much trouble and we chatted like old friends form the minute we arrived. Thank you!
