Tate St Ives: This celebrated gallery opened in 1993 and shows the very best of art in Cornwall.

Packed full of art shops and restaurants, St Ives is a great day out any time of year.

"Lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings"
Two friends and I visited The Piggery at the end of September 2012. We were greeted by Tim who showed us around the property and gave us some information on the area. The cottage was lovely and really well kept. The champagne and chocolates on arrival was a bonus! The view from the back of the property was just stunning, and lovely to wake up too. We didnt want to leave! I'd reccomend this property to anyone as we had such a great time and will definitely be back.
