A vacation rental in this Cornwall gem offers the space, privacy, and amenities you're used to at home, at the fraction of the cost of a traditional hotel. Stay in a traditional St. Ives cottage along the shoreline while you indulge in all the area has to offer families and groups.

The self catering holiday accommodations on Holiday Lettings are perfect for couples and families, as well as large groups of friends looking for a getaway in this famed town.

About St. Ives

St Ives, Cornwall is a seaside town in the far west of the county, north of Penzance and west of Camborne on the coast of the Celtic Sea. Originally a fishing village, today the main draws are the four golden-sand beaches that are located throughout the area. Perfect for surfing, windsurfing, and waterskiing the sheltered coves and pleasant waters are teeming with tourists during the hot summers. The town itself is a collection of gift shops, cafes, and picturesque holiday cottages -- all surrounding the harbour. A maze of narrow streets and alleyways are located around the harbour, and the crescent shaped beaches. During the spring and summer months the streets of St Ives are decorated with brightly coloured flower displays. Complete with stunning vistas at every turn, artists flock to St. Ives to capture its beauty in painting, poetry, and song.

Things to do in St. Ives

The beaches are the main attraction of St. Ives - Portmeor, Porthgwidden, Porthminster, and Harbour Beaches all have distinct characteristics that make them unique, as well as make them each some of the most popular in the Cornwall region. Porthmeor Beach is the main beach in St Ives. It is a level sandy beach that is ideal for families and a favourite of surfers. Porthgwidden is a small but popular beach, with a very good cafe.

Off the beach, explore the Chapel of St. Nicholas, a small structure used for worship for hundreds of years - and a great place for bird watching. Stroll through the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden for a gorgeous display of local flora. Explore ‘downlong' aka Old St. Ives and uncover the wonders of the area throughout the maze of cobblestone streets.

Embrace the artistic history of the town and take an art class or visit one of the dozens of galleries open for business - the Tate Gallery being one of the most popular. Take a ride on the scenic railway to see gorgeous views of St. Ives.
