St Ives

St Ives

St Ives is a place that captures many peoples' hearts and for many different reasons.

Famous for its unique light which has to be seen to be believed it has always been a place to attract artists. The Tate, located above Porthmeor beach has constantly changing exhibitions. 

Barbara Hepworth, one of Britain's most important artists found herself making St Ives her home & her sculpture garden is a tranquil haven and well worth a visit.

There are five beaches of St Ives and each has a very different feel and all only within a short distance of each other.  The best place to surf is Porthmeor (& the best place to watch the sunset too), Porthminster has the whitest sand and is always sheltered, Harbour Beach is buzzing with daily boating activity, Porthgwidden is a secret little cove and Carbis Bay the perfect place to give Stand Up Paddle Boarding a go!

Cobbled streets, galleries, cafes, quirky shops, award winning restaurants... there's more and more to be discovered.

Finally it is a place that changes along with the seasons. It feels a completely different place in the cold winter months with a relaxed and cosy vibe, where as the warm summer months feel vibrant and uplifting.

If you haven't been before we can highly recommend it.
