Downalong - St Ives - Cornwall

Welcome to Shutters, a bespoke fisherman's cottage steps from the harbour.

Nestled on beautiful cobbled Bethesda Hill in the heart of Downalong, St Ives, Shutters is the perfect getaway if you want to escape it all but still have everything you need just steps away. 

We’re Jenny and Chris, owners of Shutters and long time lovers of St Ives. We both spent many happy childhood holidays here and wanted a place where we could get away from our busy lives. After hunting for two years we fell in love with Shutters and we hope you’ll love this special place too.

Shutters is a nautically themed, traditional fisherman’s cottage renovated by Slovenian born craftsman Jani. Renowned for his passion for the environment and sustainable materials, this shows in every handcrafted piece in the house.

As you arrive at Shutters you’ll find us tucked away on a quiet street, it’s too narrow for cars so perfect if you have kids. The only noise you’ll hear is the cry of seagulls, as the soft sand on Harbour Beach is just 30 steps away. You might spot artists from the local art school sitting and sketching the view towards the harbour.
