This beautifully finished two bedroom apartment, positioned on the sought after wharfside, has panoramic views across the whole of the harbour and Porthminster beach from the living area and the double bedroom. Here you can watch the sunrise, and while away the hours people watching with the ebb and flow of the tide. The harbour is right outside, so you can dip your toes in the turquiose sea and relax on the golden sands, just a few steps from your front door. Being so central, you also have an excellent array of shops and restaurants close by, to spend time browsing or dining out. With your apartment just a short walk away, you can return at your leisure, to relax with a drink and watch the evening unfold around the pretty harbour, before you drift off to sleep in the comfy king size bed, to the sounds of the sea. You'll never want your holiday here to end!

A fantastic appartment. Credit to the owners who have produced an absolute Gem. Superb views, super clean and super comfy. Everything was just perfect! The huge bed was almost impossible to get out of as it was so comfortable!! Can't wait to re-book this one again. Aspects have also been a delight as hosts once again. Thank you all very much.

Beautifully located apartment in St.Ives which is why we have been staying here on and off for 50 years. The kitchen and bathroom could use some attention, but would not put us off staying again obviously. Definitely recommend for an escape from our modern hectic lives.

Holidays at The Wharf

Many of our cottages at The Wharf overlook the working harbour of St Ives. Here you'll find fishing boats, a gorgeous sandy beach and in the summer season you can take advantage of the boat trips on offer. Home to The RNLI, The St Ives Lifeboat Station is close by and is a popular attraction with tourists.

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.

Top tip

Be careful of the seagulls when eating at The Wharf.

Things to do on 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.

It’s a must the locality is amazing. We are going back again next year it is booked.

Fantastic flat , wonderful view, lovely holiday !

Excellent location and very pleasant property. Found the use of a dishwasher (especially in view of COVID) and a washing machine very useful. Lovely spacious living area and stunning view of the harbour where many an hour was spent people watching. Did not use any cooking facilities as ate out for both lunch and evening meal.

Some noise was heard from the property above with what we assume was moving furniture around in order to accommodate bed settees but this has not put us off and have booked this property again for next year. Would highly recommend.

Amazing view, no need to go anywhere, it changes all the time. The bed was so comfy. Highly recommend.

We had a fabulous stay at Seagull House. It’s a very well equipped flat with a gorgeous view. The location is perfect, and surprisingly quiet in the evening, so we slept well. We’ll be back!

Excellent location especially in the quiet of the winter

Fantastic location, incredible view, we thoroughly enjoyed staying here even though it was only 3 days just before lockdown number 2! The apartment was very comfortable with a massive king size bed and we had everything we needed. Would highly recommend this property...

Excellent clean apartment great location only issue is noise from apartment above

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your review, we were so pleased to see how much you liked the property and its fantastic location. We were sorry to see that you experienced some noise from the property above, with 1 Seagull House being an apartment, there is a risk that there will be some noise from either above or below, but this is certainly not always the case, and we hope you will agree, being on the first floor of the building provides one of the very best views in St Ives. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Ben, Customer Services

We have had a wonderful week in Seagull House in St Ives. This property is in the perfect location to watch the comings and goings of the harbour and the Lifeboat and was very comfortable for four adults. We spent a little more time in that we would 'normally' and didn't feel trapped in at all.

So good.. we booked for next year whilst we were there! Aspects came up trumps for us again.

We loved everything about Seagull House... what a wonderful apartment - and very clean. The key code access was great - didn't have to worry about keys. Could not have asked for better holiday accommodation - the location was amazing. Loved sitting at the bay window people watching - it was like you were out, but not out out :-). Perfect, thank you..

Lovely property in a great location!

A lovely flat with fabulous views in an amazing location.

Excellent apartment for the two of us. Fantastic position overlooking the harbour. Has all facilities if you want to cook a meal, but we ate out each day - you are spoilt for choice for places to eat and drink in St Ives. Very central for all the bars and restaurants. Great walks on the coast path from the door. No need for a car. We did the journey from Bath on the train.

Thoroughly enjoyed the stunning view, always something to look at, spent hours, day and night time, just looking out of the windows.

1 Seagull House provides the ideal location for exploring St Ives. Everything you can want is right on your doorstep, and the view from the living room and bedroom is amazing - perfect for watching the world go by with a glass of wine after the kids go to sleep!

Stunning view over the harbour. The main bedroom has a massive bed which was so comfy I didnt want to get out in the morning! Very convenient for town and the beaches and restaurants. Lovely property just look up the view online and you will see why this is a real find.

No 1 Seagull House is a great place to stay with amazing views of the beach and harbour. We enjoyed just sitting watching everything going on. Shops. Restaurants, pubs all within a stones throw and lots of lovely walks if you want to explore further. We loved St Ives and all that it has to offer but also easy access to Lands End, Penzance, Newquay. The apartment is very comfortable and clean. It has a strong WiFi service to keep all the family happy which is a real bonus. Aspects holidays has a local office which is handy if you need any support, Would highly recommend.
