St Ives Harbour

The Wharf, otherwise known as St Ives harbour, is a hive of activity throughout the year. With a continual hustle and bustle on the water and along the harbour front, there is always plenty to do and see while self catering at the Wharf, even at the quieter times of the year.  It’s an ever changing scene so perfect for those artists among you. Don’t forget about the very sheltered, sandy Harbour Beach, a perfect sun-trap in the heart of town and a great place to find seaglass and sea pottery! As night falls at the end of another perfect day, St Ives comes alive with a selection of bars, restaurants and cafés to suit every pocket and every taste in a truly cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Things to do at the Wharf

Boat Trips

Why not enjoy the scenery by boat and explore the coastline with an excursion with St Ives Boat Trips. Fishing trips are available for those looking for a bit of adventure, or for a more relaxing experience, a visit to seal island lets you see seals basking on the rocks at certain times of year. 

Eating and Drinking

The Wharf is home to a wide selection of restaurants and cafes, serving up fresh fish and chips to gourmet burgers, with something to suit everyone. Enjoy an ice cream or Cornish pasty and watch the world go by on the harbour front, but remember to keep your wits about you; seagulls in St Ives are renowned for swooping in and stealing food right from your hands!

Smeaton's Pier

From here you'll get a stunning view of the harbour, and an up close view of the crystal clear waters. At the entrance to the pier you'll find St Leonard's Chapel; originally dedicated for local fisherman, it is now a museum and memorial for the fisherman of St Ives.

Lifeboat station

Home to the new £1.5 million lifeboat, the RNLI lifeboat station is a popular attraction for visitors to St Ives. The gift shop next door sells souvenirs where all profits go towards helping to save lives at sea.

The cottage is absolutely lovely! A gem in magical St Ives! Excellent location! Right on the harbour beach, close to another fantastic beach, great atmosphere; old, charming and picturesque, yet modern and cosy with all amenities. We loved it there, and we will most definitely come again!

Great location, very central but quiet with a lovely view across the harbour.

A gorgeous cottage for two , loved the changing view and listening to the sea ,

February 2018

We stayed at 1 Quay Street, St Ives to be near enough to the sea so we could hear the sea, something both me and my husband find relaxing. The property position was better than we expected. The property was well equipped and beautifully presented.

January 2018

This is a lovely cottage and we had a wonderful time exploring St Ives which is our new favourite place. The proximity to the beach and the amenities is perfect and such wonderful views.

October 2017

Fantastic location and views.

September 2017

1 Quay side, this little gem is probally in the best position in all of St Ives. You will spot this pretty little cottage in all the Art Galleries, as its part of the beautiful Harbour. The view from the lounge and bedroom is directly out to the beach, it was like a ever changing picture frame. We loved this cottage because it is directly on the beach, through a little door. which is very convenient if you fancy a cuppa or lunch . It was great because you didn't have to carry beach stuff miles. The cottage was beautiful inside, all high quality. The beds were very comfortable. We came home very rested and my mum and I can't wait until a visit next year!!
