The property is well situated, although at the top of a steep hill. The decor is pleasant. At times there is some noise from the street and as it is situated above a shop there is some noise early in the morning due to deliveries. However, it is convenient to have a shop so near! The seating is limited due to only one sofa and a window seat, which, although large is not particularly comfortable. The parking is very challenging due to being off a narrow alleyway. If you own a large vehicle be prepared for some tricky manoeuvres, especially if someone is partied in the middle bay. Overall, we had a nice stay in the flat but it was a little on the noisy side due to being on a fairly busy street.

Mrs D,


St Ives is one of Cornwall's top destinations and a beautiful seaside town where visitors can enjoy a traditional beach holiday with a twist. It's easy to understand why the town has been attracting painters, sculptors and ceramists for decades with its stunning scenery and natural quality of light- one of only four Tate Galleries in the world is located here in the heart of the town. The town itself arcs around the working harbour- the heart of the historic fishing community. You could lose yourself for hours in the charming cobbled streets which are crammed with gift and craft shops, art galleries, top notch restaurants and welcoming local pubs- a real treasure trove just waiting to be explored!

St Ives also has four fabulous beaches, Porthmeor, Porthgwidden, Harbour beach and Porthminster which between them offer miles of golden sand and hours of building sand castles, playing in the rock pools and other family friendly activities. Dogs are welcomed out of season. Throughout the year, St Ives has a busy event calendar including the St Ives Food & Drink Festival in May and a Music & Arts Festival in September.
