We stayed for three comfortable nights with warm and welcoming hosts Trish and Michael in the old fishing quarter of this remarkable town. Trish is born and raised there and makes a charming representative of a place she is very proud of. Downlong Cottage is in a great location for the popular Porthmeor Beach, strolling The Wharf, the St. Ives... More

We booked for one night at this guest house. The room was very clean and comfortable and a lovely breakfast the following morning. I would recommend this guest house, friendly owners and close proximity of the beach and village.

After deciding to 'wing it', whilst wandering around St Ives, we turned a corner to find Downlong Cottage and Trish happily tending to their window boxes. From the moment we walked through the door, we were really impressed with all aspects of our stay. We have to say that Trish and Michael are lovely, without a doubt the best b&b... More

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... More

Had a fantastic 4 days stay at Downlong Cottage, a very friendly and welcoming B&B, would highly recommend. Great breakfasts and very clean and tidy rooms. Perfect walking distance from all the local attractions and pubs. Our stay was perfect.
