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.

Enjoyed our stay at The Puffin very much. All facilities good. Comfortable, near both sea and town.

We loved the Puffin, perfect for our family of 5, really well arranged and appointed accommodation, completely faultless, already planning to rebook Easter 2022, the perfect way to celebrate the end of lockdown 2021.

Just returned from a short break at the Puffin and love the place! The location is perfect and just a 8 minute walk down the hill to the harbour. The Puffin itself is fantastic, tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. If like us you tend to take everything including the kitchen sink with you, don't bother! The place has every appliance and utensil you could think of, including a kitchen sink! A new modern smart TV helps to relax in the evening and very good Wifi, even with 3 boys on multiple streaming devices :)

The parking space provided is very tight, especially if everyone has large MPV's, as they did when we were there. Our strategy was to pull up to the front door and get everything and everyone out first. Then go into the space as tight as you can to the left hand wall. It's tight, but just about achievable!

Overall we loved the place and would highly recommend it for a break in St Ives.

We had a fantastic week in St Ives staying at The Puffin. The accommodation had everything we needed and more. Excellent value for money!

The car parking space is a little tight for a big car however we were still very grateful as parking can be very difficult in the area.

Beautiful holiday let. Excellent decor and facilities. Great location. Would definitely stay again.

Fab place, very clean, great location easy walking distance to beaches and harbour and town. Highly recommend this place.

We have just returned from a week stay at the puffin. What can I say, beautiful accommodation with everything you need and more. Excellent location , only a 2 minute walk into St Ives. We will definitely be returning.
