About lesley anne silver
We live and work in St Ives and have never wanted to live anywhere else! Tiddles Cottage is co hosted by myself and my adult son and we really care about this tiny cottage. Downalong is a fantastic place to live and a great base for a holiday. We chose TIDDLES because of the location and because it is a is a small cottage that is what we wanted, a tiny piece of St Ives to turn into a little gem of a property. Small yes, but cosy and stylish being almost opposite the famous Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden and Trewyn sub tropical gardens the cottage has peace and quiet yet within a couple of minutes you are in the hub of everything St Ives has to offer. A huge benefit of staying at TIDDLES is not needing to use the car!

Beautiful little cottage
Fantastic, small cottage with lots of lovely touches. Ideal central location for exploring St Ives. Great communication with owners.
Beautiful cottage in an idyllic setting! So clean and homely with luxurious touches.
We arrived at tiddles to a lovely welcome pack with milk in the fridge for that first well needed cuppa! Tiddles is cosy and full of character, and has everything you need for your stay, even though it's small it's cleverly designed so that you don't wish for anything more. We have had an amazing stay for our honeymoon and will be back for sure!!

The cottage was easy to find using the instructions given by the owners and the guide to the best restaurants and places to go was invaluable.
