We have just returned from a New Year break at the Haven and had an absolutely fantastic time. The property is located just a short walk from town which means it has the added bonus of parking (a rarity in St Ives). The house is really well equipped with everything you need to self cater. The only down side we found was that for a party of 9 (which included 7 adults) there wasn't enough bathrooms especially as one of the bathrooms is ensuite.

The haven was fantastic! Perfect for our family of four plus mother in law and father in law and our dog! Modern furnishings and all you need appliance wise for self catering holiday.

A morning precesison led by the Mayor to bless the Well of St Eia. Following this, the Mayor will 'Hurls the Silver Ball' into a crowd of children who assemble on the beach below. The one who returns the ball to the Guildhall steps by midday receives a silver coin. In the afternoon the Mayor then throw pennies from the balcony of the Guildhall for children to collect.
