St Ives

On 14th July 2007, The Guardian newspaper named the Cornish culture capital, St Ives, as its seaside town of the year. A star-studded panel of judges, including Bill Bryson, Rick Stein and John Betjeman's daughter, Candida Lycett Green, came to the decision after debating the pros and cons of 12 short-listed coastal towns and cities from across Britain and Ireland.

Stein, known worldwide as the patron of Padstow but who has been going to St Ives since his childhood, was one of many keen advocates of the town.

"The thing I really love about St Ives is that it is on two beaches, so you get two aspects of the ocean, which makes it very romantic and quite unusual for a British resort. I think of it as the big brother of Padstow."

St Ives also scored heavily for its rugged views, exhilarating cliff top walks, the good surf at Porthmeor Beach and, of course, its cultural offerings, with judges keen to note its burgeoning new art talent as well as the Tate Gallery (specialising in modern Cornish art) and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden.

Panel member Alastair Sawday declared, "I have a special love for St has everything a seaside town needs". He went on to commend balmy beaches, great surf, fantastic fish, superb coastal walks and an infectious convivial buzz.

Some lesser-known delights of St Ives that came up during the judging process include the regular appearances of basking sharks and seals, the delightful branch line railway link to St Erth, the delicious fish-and-chip takeaway downstairs at the Porthminster Café, and the curious tradition of "silver ball hurling" - during which a silver ball is thrown through the streets by children on Feast Monday in February.




EXPERIENCE CORNWALL: Charm and coastline in St. Ives.Posted: 3:06 am

August 19, 2008

AS London has become more and more expensive for Americans, Yankee visitors to the capital have collected many a horror story. It is perversely therapeutic to catalogue the outrageous prices for things: $50 for breakfast; $250 for a grubby shoebox of a hotel room with a crappy bed; $8 for a single ride on the Tube.

Behind the hysterical

laughter, there's a panic.

Is there any place in England still affordable?

The answer, of course, is yes. In some cases -

Cornwall, for instance - they are a must-visit.

Despite legions of summertime tourists and a real estate market that has shut out many locals, England's temperate far southwest remains relatively affordable for American visitors.

Cornwall is known for its surfing schools, the cheesy resort town of Newquay, the pristine Isles of Scilly and its untamed coast.

The sixth Celtic nation after Ireland, Scotland, Wales, the Isle of Man and Brittany, Cornwall boasts a resuscitated language, an omnipresent flag and a regional pride that manifests in countless ways. (There's a T-shirt, worn very seriously, with the message, "Cornwall is Next to England . . . like Wales.")

In the first tier of beautiful Cornish seaside towns is St. Ives, an art colony turned beach town whose narrow streets throng with tourists during the balmy summer months.

Long a magnet for artists from the UK and well beyond, the Cornish beach town features everything you might want in a British summer seaside idyll - proximity to an undeveloped coastline, stylish boutique hotels, outstanding restaurants, broad beaches, good surfing, galleries and museums.

St. Ives has its top hotels with rates in the $260-$300 range, of course. What's notable is the range of well-designed guesthouses with far cheaper rates.

Perhaps the most charming is Pebble Hotel, now in its fourth season (high

season doubles from $184).

With modern rooms and outstanding breakfasts, Pebble is a rare value in the UK these days.

You can go even cheaper, though - the very tiny Copper Beech Bed & Breakfast offers a double room for $129 in high season. Also on the lower end of things, simple accommodations can be found at the Atlantic View Guesthouse, where high-season doubles without breakfast can be booked for $107.

For grub, there's the

outstanding Porthminster Café, with its irresistible menu, sourced in large part locally (average lunch $31; average dinner $47).

It's not exactly cheap, but it provides good value for the level of sophistication.

For more budget-conscious gourmands, there's the Cornish Deli, packed with local products. Sandwiches begin at $7, while at dinner, tapas-style dishes run from $10.

The town's artists' legacy is on view at the Tate St. Ives, one of four Tate Museums in the UK. The museum's agenda in part is to provide a context for the emergence of St. Ives as a centre of modernist art production and a home for artists from the 1920s on. (Entrance is $11.50.)

Hikers should hike the almost seven-mile stretch of the South West Coast Path from St. Ives to Zennor.

It's a moderately difficult walk with lots of dips and curves. (Wear hiking shoes!)

The views are awesome, and there's a pub in the gorgeous village of Zennor for post-hike relaxation. Return by bus or group taxi, or bus to Zennor and walk in the other direction back to St. Ives.

The downside of St. Ives, if there is one, is in its very quaint atmosphere, which can feel a bit precious. Yet, with the mist and the fresh air, surfers wandering down to the beach, and bakeries selling Cornish pasties and saffron cakes, St. Ives'

cuteness is inarguably


For all of its charms and character, Cornwall remains one of the least affluent regions in the UK, so it has not escaped the attentions of second-home buyers. Property has become so expensive that many locals have been priced out of home ownership many times over, and some who settled happily in St. Ives decades ago cannot afford to stay.

Luckily, you can still afford to visit.

"Great views and great location with considerate service."

We stayed here over the New Year's Eve period in 2014 with our two children aged 10 and 13. The apartment is spacious and comfortable with a really great view over St Ives Harbour. It is located just above the centre so that you are less than five minutes walk from the local Co-op and a ten minute walk to the harbour - not a climb up the hill which pleased the kids. Mark the owner was helpful without being fussy and if we would happily stop here if we were in St Ives again.

Thankyou for your kind comments and I hope you enjoyed NewYear in StIves and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Pednolver Apartments, and I hope to see you the next time you decide to visit StIves,Mark

"Comfortable apartment, lovely views and very close to town and beaches."

A lovely apartment, so well appointed with lovely views of the harbour. Tasteful decoration and artwork, lovely bed linen! It takes about 3 minutes to walk down to the harbour - a superb location. The owner, Mark, was quick to reply to any communication and extremely helpful. It was my son's birthday the day after we arrived and Mark left a beautiful birthday cake complete with candles and matches for us to give to him which was so kind. Everything about the flat is comfortable with good attention to detail. We stayed in October and it was very cosy with the fire on in the evening. We really did enjoy everything about it and Mark's friendly, helpful service was very much appreciated too.

Glad you had a great time at Pednolver Apartments and I hope to see you all again sometime soon!sorry for the delay in replying to your review but for some reason I missed it!Mark

"Comfortable, characterful apartment with fabulous bird's-eye view over St. Ives harbour and town"

I spent a week in Apartment 2 with my Cocker Spaniel. It is a lovely apartment, the ground floor of a beautiful period house, which retains much of its original character. It is spacious, comfortably furnished and warm, with all the conveniences of modern day living. It is thoughtfully equipped and the owner, Mark, made us feel most welcome. Cream tea, milk, bread, Saffron cake, Cornish biscuits and even dog biscuits awaited us. It was a kind touch.

The views from the apartment over St. Ives are wonderful. The tail end of Hurricane Gonzalo blew through during our week and it was great to be able to see the rough seas from the comfort of the living room. I saw the lifeboat being launched for practice exercises, again from the living room and never tired of watching the ebb and flow of the tide in and out of the harbour. Binoculars are useful.

The location is very good, for easy access into town and down onto Porthminster Beach, if you don't mind a short climb uphill to get back. No need for the car, which is a real bonus in St. Ives where parking is limited. The beaches are all lovely, as are the beach cafes. I was lucky enough to see seals on Porthminster, Porthgwidden and Porthmeor beaches. Tate St. Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum are both an easy walk away.

Thank you Mark. We hope to return!

I am writing a response from Apt2 as I am in it at the moment,sometimes I forget what a fantastic apartment it is and the view over the town and the bay from where I am writing this is like a picture!Thankyou for your very kind comments and I am glad you enjoyed your stay and I hope to see you again soon,Mark

"A wonderful stay in a fantastic apartment with an unforgettable view"

We had a wonderful time in Pednolver Apartment 2 with our two teenage boys. The apartment was beautifully appointed with great, modern amenities, and the view was fantastic! Mark was extremely helpful, polite and friendly during our stay and nothing was too much trouble. He was also very prompt and friendly in communicating with me during the booking process. The goodies in the apartment were also a wonderful welcoming touch, and very generous! St Ives was a fantastic place to stay and we loved going down to the harbour (a short walk) for dinner, ice-creams and shopping. Even though we live so far away (in Australia) we would love to visit St Ives again and would stay in Pednolver Apartment 2 again without a doubt.

Thankyou for staying at Pednolver Apartments and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in StIves and I hope you had a safe trip back to Aus and anytime you feel like a holiday in StIves then please be sure to contact us!Regards Mark and family

"Perfect location"

Just got back from a fabulous week in St Ives. The apartment was lovely, and perfectly situated so we got great views each evening over the harbour plus also 5 mins to Porthminster and 10 to Porthmere beaches but with 2 small children we did amble. Also ventured out each night for ice cream in the harbour such was the location, we could do this without moaning from the kids. All very clean, great big windows, fab shower. Mark's a good guy - very friendly, we had no problems with anything but I'm sure if we had they'd have been sorted straightaway. No hesitation in recommending.

Thankyou for staying at Pednolver Apartments and I'm glad you and your family enjoyed your stay here.Thankyou for your very kind comments and I hope to see you all again soon!enjoy the rest of the summer holidays,Mark
