♥ St Ives

Harriet's tip

I love St Ives for its huge variety of places to shop, eat and drink – a particular favourite of mine is The Cornish Deli – hidden away on Chapel Street – but definitely not to be missed! They even sell their own preserves and chilli sauces, and everything is locally sourced. St Ives is also the perfect destination for a traditional bucket-and-spade holiday, with five beautiful beaches within walking distance of the town. My favourite is Porthmeor Beach, located just below the iconic Tate St Ives. Porthmeor is also one of only eight beaches in Cornwall that hold the prestigious Blue Flag Award, given in recognition of water quality, safety, environmental management and education. Whatever the weather, whatever the season, there is always something new to do and explore in St Ives! We have a great range of cottages in St Ives, take a look here
