St Ives Town

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.

Polmear is in a good location close to shops and other amenities, had a super holiday there,the flat is well equipped and what impressed me was the cleanliness of the place,well done to all involved!!

We had a super time at Polmear. The location is perfect and we absolutely loved the overall experience of being in St Ives. Thank you so much!

Polmear is a really lovely place, a good size, clean and well maintained. The location is great, really convenient and easy to walk everywhere from the accommodation. The complimentary tea and coffee are nice touches. We had a great stay here and would definitely recommend it.

A convenient flat for its proximity to shops and the harbour. Excellent view from the sitting-room.

We loved our stay in St Ives and will definitely use Aspects again. The staff were so friendly and efficient, they really went out of their way to help, nothing was too much trouble.

Excellent location, very close to town and could walk to centre and harbour in a few minutes. Great view from the sitting room window - I love to paint and really enjoyed the view of Smeaton's pier and the harbour. Comfy bed, slept well (but bedroom on a noisy road and you need to get used to it).

Went in February (in a cold spell), which was quiet and tourist free. Unfortunately, we found the flat too cold for our comfort. We would probably use Polmear again, but in the Summer months.

Thank you for your feedback; it certainly sounds like you had a lovely time, and what a lovely view that would be to paint! Thank you for your helpful comments about the heating. We have marketed this property for a number of years now and this hasn't previously been highlighted as an issue, so we will most certainly speak to the property owner about this. We hope to see you back again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

We had a great stay in Polmear over the Christmas week. A comfortable and warm flat, very well equipped and in a great position - with a lot of room to spread out and really relax. The view over the harbour is fab and we enjoyed being back in St Ives again. Polmear is a good base for the town and a nice place to be when it did get a bit wet and cold outside. Recommended.

We had a wonderful, warm, comfortable stay in Palmer with a great view of the harbour. Can’t wait to go again!

We love St Ives and we love Polmear. The location is amazing and there is so much space! The welcome gifts are a really lovely touch. Aspects have always been a pleasure to deal with.

We had a lovely stay at Polmear at the end of June. It's in the perfect location near to a bus stop, train station, Co-Op and the beach! The living room has a stunning view and the rest of the flat was well equipped with lots of cooking equipment and was decorated to feel homely. Only thing to let it down was how noisy the road can be next to the bedroom as it's on the ground floor and there's no double glazing! Would still stay here again!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are really pleased that you had a lovely stay at Polmear. Being in such a fantastic location, you may hear some road noise, particularly at busier times of the year, but we are glad to see that you felt that it was absolutely worth it for the brilliantly convenient location right by the bus stop, train station and a short stroll down the hill for all of the shops, restaurants and beaches. Plus the benefit of those amazing views! Hopefully see you again soon! Tanya, Customer Services.
