We loved staying at the Blue House. It is very cosy, but it is so close to the beach, and you cannot beat falling asleep to the sound of the ocean! It was very convenient to stay there with kids, and everything was super close. We will definitely come back!

Ms L,

Thankyou once again to the hosts for a stay at this comfortable, well appointed house, moments from the beach. It was a much-needed break and the house enabled us to to have a restful time in this beautiful place.

Miss T,

A delightfully warm and comfortable cottage in the perfect location - just yards from Porthmeor beach and a short walk from the centre of town. Can't wait to go back!

Mrs A,

A perfect place to stay in St Ives. It is close enough to hear the sea at night but being back from the main thoroughfare makes a sanctuary from the hustle of the town.

Miss P,


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!
