Many of our larger town houses are situated just a couple of minutes’ walk from the centre and these offer ideal family accommodation, many with gardens, something of a rarity in St Ives. If all that shopping and socialising gets too much, you can always get away from it all and relax in the tranquil setting of Trewyn Gardens, a real little haven, tucked away in the heart of the town.
So, for self catering holidays in St Ives with everything on your doorstep, the town is the place to be.

Held on the anniversary of the consecration of the Parish Church of St Eia in 1434 AD, Feast Day offers visitors to witness - and even join in with - some centuries-old traditions. 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.

Very comfortable with all equipment you could need for your stay. Bit of a steep hill to the beach, but it keeps you fit. Nice outside space at the rear to sit on a sunny evening. All the family enjoyed their stay and we have already reserved for next year.
Mr Smith Aug 2020
I booked Wheal Ayr for New Year week as a present for my mums 70th birthday and my parents Golden wedding anniversary so it had to be special. Fortunately it was exactly that. The house was spotlessly clean, probably the best equipped holiday let we have ever stayed in and plenty big enough for four adults and two children. The location was fabulous - a 5 minute walk down the hill to Porthmeor - and made for a truly magical week. The only very slight downside was that the second parking space was rather tight, but to have two parking spaces so close to town is such a huge bonus that we soon managed to live with it. We will definitely be back.

Spacious and bright property simply and efficiently furnished. Clean and well presented. Need to bear in mind steep hill down and back from town although there is a bus service available.
Mr Haynes Oct 2019
We really enjoyed our stay in St Ives. The location is ideal, being a short walk into town and Porthmeor beach. We were mostly happy to wander round the town, so it was nice to not have to use the car. The property is really well equipped and had everything we needed, our baby daughter was especially well catered for. It is comfortable and cosy and has lovely views from the bedrooms. The only slight negative was the second parking space out the back was a little tight being at the end of a lane, but we realise parking is at a premium in St Ives, and may only be a problem if bringing more than one car.
Mrs Harris Oct 2019
A lovely relaxing stay at 8 Wheal Ayr Terrace. Clean and well appointed house with comfortable beds and everything we needed for an enjoyable holiday. Close to Porthmeor surfing beach and within a short walk of the town centre and harbour. The parking space at the front is quite small but there is an option to park at the back of the house. We would definitely stay there again.
Mr Goldthorp Sep 2019
Well appointed house, spacious, comfortable and cosy, very well equipped. Great to have parking too. Would definitely book again (but alas already booked up for all the holiday dates we can make in 2020!)
