The Big Picture Apartments occupy a commanding position above the town centre, with perhaps some of the best views of the town, harbour and bay, and yet only a few minutes walk from the bustling main streets of St. Ives, with its galleries, restaurants and beaches. The photo shown here is actually taken from the apartment and many guests remark that when they arrive at our apartment, the view is even more breathtaking than they expected!

We have two apartments, a 4 bedroom apartment and this 2 bedroom apartment, both in the same building. The 2 bedroom apartment is very light and spacious and sleeps 4-5 adults plus a baby with the provision of a travel cot. Short breaks and special rates for 2 people may be available outside of School holidays.

The Cornwall region

Cornwall has long been one of the most popular holiday destinations in England., and in the last decade Cornwall has emerged as one of the world's iconic destinations. With dramatic coastlines, sheltered bays, beautiful beaches, and probably the mildest climate in the UK, Cornwall has so much to offer holidaymakers. Surfing, walking, sailing, fishing, culture, restaurants, or simply relaxing, it's all here for young and old alike.

St Ives

St. Ives in Cornwall is perhaps the most beautiful coastal town in the South West, full of history, art, and four of the most beautiful beaches in Cornwall. The town has a superb selection of restaurants, cafes, and pubs and has developed a very cosmopolitan feel together with an art and cultural scene which acts as a magnet for visitors from all over the world.

St Ives has been named the Guardian seaside town of the year, 2007. Alongside 11 other short listed coastal towns and cities from around Britain and Ireland, St Ives faced an intense grilling by a star-studded panel of judges which included Bill Bryson and Rick Stein as well as John Betjeman’s daughter, Candida Lycett Green. But the combination of St Ives’ golden, Atlantic washed beaches, artistic draw and strong cultural identity made it a clear choice for the coveted title.
