Holidays in St Ives

Experience a holiday in St Ives and you’ll never want to leave. Spend your days meandering through the cobbled streets, exploring artists’ studios, sampling local produce and relaxing on the many beautiful beaches.

One of the best things about a holiday in St Ives is that you don’t have to leave the seaside town during your stay. With several stunning beaches all within St Ives; from the golden bay of Porthminster, to the Blue Flag Beach at Porthmeor, there’s no need to pack up the car; simply stroll down to any one of the nearby beaches.

If you’re looking for something a bit more adventurous, other than taking a dip in the turquoise waters, why not have a go at surfing, paddle boarding or kayaking? Alternatively, you might have a more relaxing holiday in mind, imagine sunbathing on the beach, harbour-watching from your holiday home, spa days at the local hotel and sipping coffee in quaint cafes.

This is a lovely holiday accommodation for a single or couple who like to be in the thick of things - unfortunately, if you like an early night it is not ideal due to the music from the pubs opposite, but if you like to go to the pub then the location is perfect. All round another great aspects holiday - looking forward to my next one in April. I holiday with Aspects regularly and always find their properties to be immaculate and well supplied

Reply from Aspects Holidays

It was great to welcome you back here again and we are glad that you enjoyed another lovely stay in St Ives. Being in such a fantastic central location, you may hear some of the hustle and bustle of the town at times. The owners have triple glazing to minimise this, so it should be a little quieter compared to other properties in a similar location, but it won't block it out completely. We hope that you agree that it is worth it for being just steps away from all the lovely cafes, restaurants, galleries, pubs, and beaches that St Ives has to offer. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Tanya, Customer Services
