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.

"That View!"

Fantastic apartment in a great position. The apartment had everything we needed for a comfortable stay - and that can't be said of all St Ives places in the middle of winter. It was great to be able to bring our pooch too and we enjoyed getting out while it was fine and cosying up when it rained. The view from the apartment is just stunning. We spent hours sitting gazing out across the bay.

Thank you for your very kind review and I am glad you enjoyed your stay in Apartment 2 and hopefully you will stay again unless that is we end up as neighbours!good luck Mark

"Lovely apartment"

We stayed here for 4 nights in November. We were really impressed with the quality of the apartment. Views to die for even in the middle of a storm. The apartment had everything you need for a comfortable stay. Allocated off street parking is an absolute bonus. The owner went the extra mile to make our stay as pleasant as possible.. We will definitely return.

My pleasure and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and I hope to see you again soon,Mark

"Five bearded blokes and Bruno the Bullmastiff. A great week in St Ives!"

We knew that the welcome by Mark would be great based on reviews on here and being in touch before our arrival. Kitchen was wonderfully equipped which we made daily use of to keep 5 grown men and a Bullmastiff fed and happy. It was also great to be able to park 2 cars for the week. The only small recommendation we would make is that the dining table is a bit of a squash for 5 people to eat at but I guess if you're with kids that wouldn't be a big issue. This was our first visit to St Ives and the amazing daylight was something we hadn't been told about and made it a very special experience. We also found a warm welcome everywhere from meeting Mark through to all the shops and places to eat and drink that we went to and everywhere was very dog friendly. See you next year!

My 5 bearded friends and Bruno!,I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Pednolver Apartments and more importantly were made to feel welcome in StIves which is always nice to hear,it was lovely to meet you all and I look forward to seeing you all hopefully next year,King regards Mark,Vicky,Ben and Daisy (Pednolver Apartments)

"First Trip to St Ives"

First visit to St Ives. Stayed at the Pednolover apartment 2. Beautiful views to match the well kept and presented apartment. Mark the owner could not help us enough From sorting our booking to all the necessary details re travel etc.. He even recommended the fish and chips from the Albatross which turned out to be an excellent choice. Many thanks we will definitely be back.

Glad you enjoyed your stay at Pednolver Apartments and I'm equally as glad that you enjoyed your Fish and Chips at The Albatross which in my view and more importantly my good ladies view (And the kids view) is without doubt the best Chippy in StIves.Once again thankyou for staying at Pednolver and I hope to see you both again soon,Mark

"Lovely Apartment, amazing views and a very warm welcome!"

We booked this apartment at the very last minute and what a great find! The apartment is in a fantastic location at the top of the town, only a few minutes walk and you are in the centre of St Ives with shops, supermarkets (coop) restaurants and beaches. We've stayed in St Ives several times previously, and in lots of other places in Cornwall, but this apartment is by far the best! We received a very warm welcome from Mark and were able to park our car and unload our stuff before the allocated arrival time. There was a lovely welcome pack in the apartment, which our girls rated the 'BEST EVER' as there were several packs of locally handmade Easter chocolates included as well as tea,coffee,biscuits, scones,jam and clotted cream in the fridge! The apartment was spotlessly clean and the kitchen very well equipped . The main bedroom has huge oak doors that open onto the lounge, allowing you to create a lovely open plan area. The beds were very comfortable- nothing to fault at all in the apartment. However the highlight of the place is the amazing views from the bay window in the lounge- you can look out across the harbour and town and out to sea- I must admit, when we booked the 'ground floor' apartment I was sceptical about the views- but due to the positioning of the house, the views are fantastic. Overall a great place to stay, we didn't want to leave and would love to come back again! Highly Recommended!

Thankyou for your very kind comments and it was a pleasure to meet you and your lovely family.I'm glad you liked the apartment and I'm especially glad the girls liked the welcome pack and I'm glad they enjoyed their holiday and I hope to see you all again sometime and once again thankyou for staying at Pednolver Apartments,Mark

"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

"Great views, clean, comfortable and very helpful and welcoming owner."

This is a great apartment with spectacular ocean views. You are a short walk from everything and Mark, the owner, couldn't be more delightful and accommodating. I would recommend staying here.

Thankyou for your very kind comments and I hope to see you again soon,Mark
