About the neighbourhood
Downalong is a warren of windy cobbled streets in the (in my opinion) best bit of St Ives.The cottages were mainly fisherman's houses and retain much character. Love lane, Rose Lane, Fish Street ,Teetotal street and even Virgin Street are all nearby street names.

Downalong is mid way between the 3 main beaches and close to the shops,pubs and restaurants.

No arduous walk up the hill after your day in the town or on the beach back to your accommodation if you stay in Downalong !
Getting around
St Ives is a destination in itself and many people stay in the town and area, but if you want to visit other areas in Cornwall there is fairly good train coverage, not too bad a bus service and also the option of organised trips by coach to the bigger attractions.

Car not needed
How to get there

St Ives is easily accessible via the road network and by train. The train from London Paddington is a great way to travel, the train runs along by the sea for much of the last part of the journey from Exeter and if booked in advance is very reasonably priced.
