Great location in the centre of town. Virgin Street is A stunning little street. The house is fine, there were 6 of us staying and it was plenty for us. Great holiday in the Cornish sunshine, can’t wait to visit st Ives again next year.

Mr D,

Great location in centre of St Ives. Easy short walk to beaches and shops. Very clean and practical house. Lack of outdoor drying area for beachwear only small downside but location more than makes up for that. Beware first time visitors to St Ives.....the seagulls may keep you awake, bring ear plugs!

Mrs M,


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.

So what are you waiting for? Why not discover what St Ives is all about today!
