The property is lovely, very well looked after and furnished beautifully. The service has been amazing with constant updates and reminders with very clear instructions. The folder in the flat is full of useful information. TV had lots of channels to watch. Parking is very difficult, with limited spaces I'd recommend reversing down of you can, you can also book car parking close by through the council website. Dogs are only allowed on the beach between 6pm and 10am (fine of £80-£1000). Beach is very close by, be prepared to walk up a steep incline (if you have disabled or pish chairs etc). Driving around St Ives is very busy, if you can I'd recommend using a taxi service(I used A1 taxis, downloaded their app) the train station and bus stops are also very close by.

St Ives

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.
