About 15 The Digey

In light of the COVID-19 virus, we want to reassure you that this St Ives self-catering property is disinfected (hard surfaces and soft furnishings) after each guest stay. Please note that until we can resume normal service, check in time is 5pm and check out is 9am. Want to live the traditional St Ives way? 15 The Digey is a pet friendly apartment located on one of the oldest streets in the heart of town, giving you a true taste of living in traditional fishing town. You’ll feel taken back in history as you stroll the cobbled streets to reach the courtyard just off the Digey, where you’ll find number 15 – your home for the week! The location of the Digey perfectly situates you just a few minutes’ walk from the hustle bustle of Fore Street, where many shops and restaurants are located and in the other direction you have the glorious Porthmeor Beach almost on your doorstep (just 350m!) and less than a ten minute walk away are the other beaches in St Ives.

As you enter the shared courtyard, you will see your own private corner where the owners have erected a bamboo screen for you, so that you're able to sit behind and peacefully enjoy your morning coffee or an evening drink. To enter the property from this point, you need to walk up an external flight of stairs to reach the front door, then once through the front door, you have an internal flight of stairs to climb. These stairs are moderately fair for you to negotiate with your luggage. As you reach the top, you'll enter the kitchen and living area with an interior finish that offers you a warm and welcoming entry. To the left of the entrance you'll find your double bedroom with its bamboo bed linen and towels. This room brings plenty of space and comfort for two guests to stay and enjoy, as well as a TV to be able to enjoy a late-night film or early morning news with some breakfast in bed. 

The kitchen is fully equipped with a with a gas hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine as well as plenty of kitchen utensils in order to be able to enjoy home cooked meals for the duration of your stay. You also have a dining table that can romantically seat two. This open plan area also leads on to your living room where the sofa bed is located which can comfortably sleep one child or a small person. The light and vibrant colour scheme compliments your beachy surroundings throughout the town, some of which you have roof top views of! You have sea glimpses of Porthmeor from one side and the St Ives harbour on the other. The living area is kitted out for your comfort, whether you're having a break from the sun or a day sheltering from the rain. You have free WiFi and a Freeview TV and DVD player for some visual entertainment. If you fancy a bit of music whilst cooking or preparing for an evening out, there is an Amazon Echo and a docking station to plug in your device and listen to your own music. 

Being in such a central location in the town means you're a just a few moments' walk from the Tate and the Barbara Hepworth museum, two of the most renowned galleries in St Ives. If you fancy visiting either of these, the owners of 15 The Digey hold an associate membership card to for two guests to get into both galleries free, so please do use when you stay. 

If you're travelling to St Ives with a small child or baby, the owners of 15 The Digey have provided a travel cot (with a duvet, pillow and some covers) and a stair gate to protect little ones from the steps down to the front door. If you're bringing a four-legged member of the family, 15 The Digey is able to accept a small, very well-behaved dog, please bring along their own crate and bedding as well as bowls, towels and chews.

Your closest restaurant to 15 The Digey is almost directly opposite you and it is called Source Kitchen. This addition to The Digey has been warmly welcomed as they serve delicious breakfast's lunch and dinner. We'd recommend booking a table there and taking the very short walk across the cobbled road to sit and enjoy a leisurely meal before deciding whether you want to hit the beach or the town! 

Porthmeor Beach is just a few moments from your front door which can make for many lovely days out, but if you're visiting with your dog, there is a seasonal dog ban throughout the peak weeks (April - late September). If you're visiting in the summer, there is a dog friendly beach called Bamaluz just tucked around the corner from the harbour front. Or, if you need a larger beach for your dog to let off some steam, Porthkidney is just a 10-minute drive from St Ives. 

15 The Digey does not come with parking, however, being centrally located means you are not too far from many of the car parks in St Ives. Your closest is Barnoon Long Stay Car Park which is approximately a 5 to 8-minute walk away, you're also able to purchase a weeklong ticket for this car park.

I have stayed with many companies in many places in St Ives over the past 30 years and seen the best and worst. This is definitely up in the top 20%. The location was ideal for us being on the Digey, although some might find the 3 sets of stairs to access the property awkward. We managed with a 4 month old but my parents struggles to visit due to accessibility. The property itself had everything we wanted and was warm throughout our stay. The notes left by the owners are delightful and helpful. We found a travel cot in the cupboard but had brought our own. We would happily stay again if there are only 3 of us. I can quite happily recommend the property. Finally, the service provided by Orange Roofs was superb with regular communication. Again, I'd happily use them to stay in St Ives.

Having had many holidays in St Ives over the years, this was our first time over Christmas and it exceeded our expectations. From the moment we entered 15 The Digey and asked the resident Alexa to play festive tunes we immediately felt welcomed, Christmassy and relaxed. The thoughtful surprise of a Christmas hamper and a decorated Christmas tree certainly added to this. The apartment was tastefully decorated, bright, warm and cheery. The kitchen well equipped with all you needed. Located centrally but still peaceful. Being able to hear the sea at Porthmeor during high tide a bonus, along with its roof top sea views whilst washing up! Only being a couple of minutes walk away from both Porthmeor and the Harbour Beach made the property ideal for dog owners. Orange Roofs, as ever, did not let us down with their services from booking to arrival. Even allowing us early entrance to the property as we were caught up in a "monsoon" and having to seek shelter from it in our car! Prosecco chilling in the fridge and a cream tea waiting for us really helped to start our holiday on a high, thank you.

The stay at The Digey was very enjoyable. There was a good deal of support from your team during the arrival stage and it was made clear that should we need anything or have any questions there would be support available. There were several welcoming notes left for guests which were a nice touch, and a generous welcoming pack.

There was a significant storm on our first night which fully tested the windows. There was a note suggesting that these sometimes needed packing to prevent droughts/ leaks etc and we also saw a note that the owner plans to replace them. This will undoubtedly make a big difference to comfort during the winter period. I would say however that the heating was efficient and we were able to stay warm during what was a cold weekend. We appreciated a bath as well as a shower!

There is building work being carried out next door, and It was somewhat awkward to negotiate the scaffolding to access the property, but we found the builders apologetic and approachable. 

In all, a lovely stay - we would return. We actually forgot to write a message in the guest book.

Really enjoyed our stay in this beautifully bright and cosy apartment. Lovely views and thoughtfully planned with everything provided for a relaxing stay. The ‘cream tea’ on arrival was really appreciated. Great location.

Fell in love with this apartment from teh listing photos and it is absolutely beautiful in person. So light, bright and fresh with sunlight streaming un through the windows and beautiful sea views from both sides. It truly feels like a home away from home and we are both deeply saddened to have to say goodbye. Thank you for creating such a beautiful apartment - the mattress has been a massive hit - SO comfy! Possibly the best mattress we've slept on ever! If (and I am sure we will) we come back to St Ives, we will return to 15 The Digey in a heartbeat. Thank you for a lovely stay.

15 The Digey was really great, we were very happy with our stay there. Everything we needed was there and it had a happy, cosy feel to the place and the seagulls on the rooftops were very entertaining too!

15 The Digey is brilliantly located and handy for everything - shops restaurants galleries and beaches. The flat is extremely well presented but homely as well. We loved the views of the sea in two directions over the roofscape. Service from orange roofs was first class,, we appreciated the tip about ATMs and the welcoming scones! Only downside was the state of the communal yard which had some dog mess to negotiate. We would certainly use orange roofs again and recommend to our friends and we’d love to come back if we can.
