Cottage
The Loft is a beautifully modernised two bedroom cottage in Downalong, the old fishing quarter and very heart of old St Ives, a designated conservation area completely enclosed by the harbour and surrounding sandy beaches. The cottage is close to shops, pubs, restaurants and steps away from the popular surfing beach of Porthmeor (home to the Tate Gallery) yet tucked away from passing pedestrians in a quiet courtyard with its own sunny terrace. The Loft sleeps 4 guests in one double and one twin bedroom with a shower room on the ground floor. The upstairs living area has light and spacious kitchen/dining/living space and benefits from a small patio just off the kitchen, catching the sun for the best part of the day. For those colder evenings the gas log burning stove makes things nice and...The Loft is a beautifully modernised two bedroom cottage in Downalong, the old fishing quarter and very heart of old St Ives, a designated conservation area completely enclosed by the harbour and surrounding sandy beaches.
