About 15 The Digey

Live the traditional St Ives by staying on the oldest street in the centre of town; The Digey. Enjoy wonderful rooftop views of the sea beyond Porthmeor and Porthminster beaches. Being located just off the cobbled lane that heads to the beach one way and the shops the other, this apartment provides a private and rather secluded corner to what is a normally a vibrant part of St Ives by day. By evening, as beach life transforms into lazy ambling along the shop-lined Fore Street, 15 The Digey is perfectly placed to explore the town for restaurants, bars, galleries and shopping. You are never further than 10 minutes away from any of St Ives’ beaches with Porthmeor being the closest at just 350m door to sand.

15 The Digey has a small corner of a shared courtyard where the owners have lovingly erected a bamboo screen behind which you can sit for a private tipple or morning coffee with the first rays of sunlight. Walk up some external steps to the front door, then up again an internal flight of stairs. Once inside, the sense of welcome and happiness will overwhelm you. There is a comfortable and light bedroom with double bed, TV and sea glimpses over 'orange' rooftops. Into the kitchen, there is a gas hob, oven, dishwasher and washing machine, plenty of cooking utensils for home dining and a table that romantically seats two. There is a sofa bed that can sleep a third small person or child if needs be. The colour scheme and furniture will certainly make you feel at home with extra touches of comfort so it can be, and feel, so much more than just a base. Beautiful windows look out on both sea glimpses; Porthmeor sea in one direction and St Ives harbour the other. 

For evening or daytime entertainment, there is WiFi, a Freeview TV, DVD player, Amazon Echo (where Alexa is charmingly happy to help) and docking station to plug in your devices to listen to your own music.   If you fancy visiting The Tate St Ives or Barbara Hepworth museum, 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 would like to come along on holiday with your small, very well-behaved dog, you are welcome to bring him or her along if you are able to bring their own crate and bedding as well as bowls, towels and chews.

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.

Come on the Night Riviera from London - definitely to be here on the middle of everything without a car. We loved this apartmnet, especially views to sea in opposite directions and decor is excellent, compatible and well-equipped. Really a delightful place to stay. Hope to be back.

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.
