Where to Stay

 

 

A  holiday cottage by the sea in St Ives offers you the ultimate flexibility, whether you are taking a short break or enjoying a main summer holiday.  StIves_Oct2010_14

The town is almost completely surrounded by the sea. Find a St Ives holiday let in the right place and you could be a few  meters from  a beautiful beach or the harbour  front, with two or three  more amazing beaches less than a five minute walk. This local diversity could be important should a coastal breeze pick up or  perhaps you just fancy gazing across an alternative vista as you enjoy your next Cornish ice-cream.

In the heart of St Ives you’ll be  spoilt for choice when it comes to restaurants.  The well equipped kitchens provided with ‘self catering’  accommodation can turn out to be under-utilised with so many great places to eat only a few paces away.

The listings below currently focus on the self catering holidays  by the sea. We have listed local holiday-let agencies who have a good spread of holiday cottages with good access to the sea, mainly in central St Ives and the immediate surrounding area.  These holiday letting companies have expert local knowledge to support and advise visitors to St Ives.  In due course we will also add recommendations for hotels and camping.
