The West Country region

St Ives is a world famous Cornish holiday town, loved for generations. It is easy to reach by road, air and train too, along one of the most spectacular railway journeys in Britain. With crystal blue waters, golden sands and a warm welcome, St Ives is an ideal holiday destination suitable for all.

Enjoy the view across to Godrevy Lighthouse, immortalised by the novelist Virginia Woolf, or take a short boat trip to watch seals basking on the rocks in the sunshine. Finally, as the disappearing sun paints the sea and sky in glorious pink, it is time to plan what to do tomorrow. st ives has something that will appeal to everyone, young or old. June, January, tonight...

St Ives

Life here is cradled around the harbour where boats still land good catches of freshest fish for the local restaurants to nourish you with. Brought ashore on the ancient granite quays, the catch is of the highest quality for your dinner plate or for the tables of some of Britain's finest restaurants. A maze of tiny cobbled streets to wander through, lined by fishermen's cottages, with a breathtaking seaside vista to greet you at the end of each one.

We have won the 'Britain in Bloom' competition many times and several European titles too. There's a blaze of colour all around the town: houses smothered in baskets of blooms, parks and public areas a rich spectrum of radiant colours. Our mild climate and almost frost-free winters makes it possible to grow plants and shrubs normally native to semi-tropical countries hundreds of miles further south. Try us for a winter break in Cornwall!

Take a leisurely walk along the coastal footpath, perhaps, south to Lelant with the opportunity to return by branch line train or opt for a more energetic hike west towards Zennor and Gurnards Head. Soak up the sounds and images of the mythical and rugged land. Paint, pencil and clay. St Ives is renowned for its art and rightly so as there are workshops, studios and galleries everywhere. Often you will find painters hurrying to finish a sketch before the light changes or before the waves wash their palettes away!

Tate st ives, part of the Tate Gallery in London, is a stunning building with a varying exhibition of local and national works, well worth a visit. The Gallery's inspirational building stands high above the magnificent surfing beach of Porthmeor and features exhibitions which represent the modern 'st ives School' of painters such as Peter Lanyon, Patrick Heron and Sir Terry Frost as well as a changing programme of other contemporary work. Allied to Tate St Ives is the Barbara Hepworth Museum, a lasting memorial to the great sculptress who lived and worked in st ives at her Trewyn Studio. Her workshop has been carefully preserved and made accessible; the gardens and house contain many examples of her work and some of her finest pieces.

Tall palms and exotic flowers bask in the sun, as you will, the air filled with scents from honeysuckle, cordyline and roses. The cafes and restaurants open their doors, the town comes alive and you'll find that St Ives has evolved into a cosmopolitan and chic resort.

"Fantastic fantastic fantastic"

Seaside house has to be the best self catering cottage in st Ives! It is spotlessly clean, comfortable and so well equipped. The beds are extremely comfortable and the location is spot on. It is a pleasure to deal with Roz and Tim who manage this property who are so professional in every way, with nothing too much trouble. This was our second stay here and hope to have many more. Really can't speak highly enough of this place, the only problem is having to leave at the end of the week.

"Just perfect"

In short - a fabulous holiday house for all the family, we will definately be returning.

We stayed here for a week with our 1 year old and 3 year old and one set of granparents.
Parking was easy as this is one of the very few houses, from what we could see, that has parking (for one car) right next to the house. The owners had arranged for a second parking spot which is a very short walk just down the road in the public car park which was a really nice touch.

The kitchen is really well equipped - it is as if you are in you own kitchen with decent crockery, cutlery, knives, chopping boards etc and it's nice to have a decent size fridge freezer to use. Everything was spotlessly clean and up to date.

The lounge area is suitably relaxing with loads of space: good tv, Wii and sound system with very comfy sofas to 'chillax' on and watch holiday makers walk by. The dining area is just the other side of the central staircase from the lunge area and easily accomodated us.

On the first floor you have a twin room, bathroom with shower and a double with en suite. These are all really well appointed and spacious. It was very noticeable that the beds all had decent, comfy matresses and the linen was really good quality.

On the top floor is the very spacious attic double room with a bunk bed 'cabin' room off that and en suite (bath) also. Our kids loved the bunk beds and the views from the windows which look accross the rooftops out to sea with the boats bobbing in the harbour.

This is a really well equipped, tastefully appointed holiday house. It has everything you would need at home and it's location is second to none with all three beaches less than 2 minute walk away and shops, pubs and restaurants equally close. Our kids had a whale of a time and the granparents were suitably impressed. We will definatley be staying again - can't wait.

"A fantastic cottage in a perfect location"

This cottage is in a fantastic location within the magical heart of St Ives, with three beaches a five minute walk or less (Porthgwidden, Porthmeor and the Harbour beach). It is also well located for Tate St Ives, the restaurants and all the sweet little shops and art galleries of St Ives.

The cottage itself is lovely - definitely very large for the area but still with a cottagey feel. The ability to park up outside is also a rarity for the area and a big plus (you may need to practice your parking skills, as the space is reasonably cosy).

The master suite is lovely with a great view across to Porthminster beach. It also has an en-suite alongside and a cute little children's bedroom with bunk beds displaying a nautical theme (my two-year-old daughter loved peering through the portholes). There are three bathrooms altogether, each with great power showers.

The quality of the fixtures/fittings etc (from the oven right down to the pizza wheel) is also excellent. It definitely feels like a comfortable home rather than a business where corners are being cut to improve profits at the expense of the guest's experience.

We spent the weekend before Christmas 2011 there and couldn't wait to go back. We returned at the end of March 2012 and lucked out on the weather, which was hot enough for mid-summer. I hope we'll be returning.
