January 2024

We have stayed at low tide & High Tide about 6 or 7 times now. We absolutely love it. The location is brilliant. The apartment is just the right size for myself and family. Aspects go above and beyond every time we book to make sure we are looked after. We will definitely be booking again. There is no other place we would like to stay for our autumn trips!!

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. 

What our guests say...

We know how important honest reviews are when it comes to booking your holiday. To help you choose the right property for you, we publish all reviews left by guests who have stayed here in the past, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines. Please bear in mind that some facilities referred to by past guests in reviews can be removed or changed at any time.

High Tide is situated in a very handy place, close to town and beach's, but needs a little make over. We wouldn't stay there again due to the loud music coming from the outside speakers of Cintra, the restaurant below. As the apartment is set up for a family it is very unlikely children could not go to sleep as the music goes on way after 10:00 pm.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your feedback following your stay at High Tide, though it is such a shame that you were disturbed by some loud music from the restaurant below. While hustle and bustle from the surrounding town is to be expected, this does sound very out of the ordinary. Due to the bank holiday there may have been some extra events taking place over the weekend. Thank you for letting us know at the time of your stay, and we would have been more than happy to contact the restaurant and bar in question had we known the noise was reoccuring during your holiday. Katy, Customer Services.

Great view right on the harbour but noise from restaurant below and other eateries etc. A cosy little flat with a very comfortable double bed and good shower and kitchen. Needs to be decorated but I really enjoyed my short break there. Don't usually stay on the harbour and in future will stay in the quieter areas of St Ives as we usually do. Excellent service from Aspects.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your short break at High Tide; being in such a fantastic central location, you may hear some of the hustle and bustle of the town and restaurants at times, but we hope that you agree that it is absolutely worth it for the amazing views and being just a few steps from everything that St Ives has to offer. The owners of this property regularly visit to work on it, so we have passed on your comments to the owner, and we will check everything thoroughly during our next inspection. Thanks for taking the time to give us your review! Phoebe, Customer Services.

Excellent location and views

Beautiful location couldn’t wish for any thing better

Lovely accommodation in great location close to harbour, beach, shops & restaurants. Aspects, as usual were efficient & helpful. Would thoroughly recommend & I’m sure we will visit again.

We’ve stayed at High Tide numerous times as it’s our favourite place in St Ives and will be returning in the Autumn. The flat provides everything required for a happy holiday plus it has fantastic views of the harbour.

Perfect location and this apartment has everything you need for a really comfortable stay. Brilliant views. Service from Aspects was excellent. Will definitely book here again.

Great views, brilliant location and the apartment (High Tide) was beautifully decorated with all the amenities you need for a fabulous break. Highly recommended.

Property perfectly positioned for access to the town. Great view from the front windows over the harbour. Property clean, well maintained and decorated.

Absolutely perfect beautiful in every way it’s a credit to the owner and I would highly recommend any one wanting a perfect holiday location 10/10

High Tide is a compact and comfortable apartment with unobstructed views over St Ives harbour which are simply beautiful. The decor and furnishings are high quality and the shower room is excellent. Located centrally in the ‘buzz’ of St Ives, it’s perfect for a quick dip in the harbour, a glass of wine in one of the many bars, or a superb meal in one of the harbour side restaurants. Highly recommended!

Would recommend to any person wanting a beautiful holiday location with a lovely welcome pack would give full 5 star rating Thank you aspect holidays

We had originally booked another cottage in St Ives which unfortunately flooded a couple of days before we were due to arrive. Aspects Holiday was brilliant in sorting out alternative accommodation and gave us a choice of three other properties. We chose High Tide and was not disappointed. Aspects Holiday had left us a lovely welcome pack for the inconvenience (even though there wasn’t any!) It was lovely and clean and had everything we needed. The views from the living room and double bedroom are just stunning. I would have no hesitation in booking again through Aspects and staying at High Tide.

Great place to stay. We have many times and never been disappointed. Central to everything beaches town and eateries. Best tip is to pre book where you are going to eat. The Mermaid pub for excellent sea food and the Lifeboat for good pub grub! Or a bacon roll at Porthgwidden beach in the morning.

Great location especially if you like to sit and watch the tide. Well equipped property, clean fresh decor. We were very happy staying here.

The view is beautiful, the ease of being in the town can’t be understated. The apartment could do with a little TLC just in small parts nothing to massive to undertake. But the view ??

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your feedback, we are glad that you enjoyed High Tide. Those views really are something special, aren't they? You could literally lose hours sat there watching the world go by and the ever-changing harbour view. We aim to offer a wide range of properties that we hope will meet the different budgets, differing requirements and individual tastes. Whilst this property is not marketed as one of our higher end properties, this helps to keep it more affordable when compared to others with that kind of location, those views but of a higher spec/more modern decor. We always try to ensure that the photos and descriptions are accurate, so we do hope that this was what you had expected. Your comments are automatically sent on to the property owners, so that they can consider any suggestions for future improvements though, so thank you for the helpful comments and we hope to see you back soon. Tanya, Customer Services

The apartment was perfect

A wonderful location overlooking The Wharf and our favourite place to enjoy the ever-changing view of the harbour.

We’ve been to high tide and low tide for the last 4 years, the position is excellent over looking over the harbour. Also very close to the main town and superior restaurants. Aspect staff are always very helpful for your requirements. Highly recommendable.

We had a fab time at High tide, the views we had to wake up with every morning were amazing and we couldn’t of asked for anything better. The apartment was nice and clean with everything we needed. Perfect location to explore everything beautiful St Ives has to offer! Loved every minute of our holiday!

This is a really nice flat - perfect for 2 people or 2 people with 2 children. In saying this the second bedroom did have 2 full size single beds.

We and other family members use Aspect properties in St. Ives every year. We always have a pleasurable stay in and around the harbour. All staff are very helpful when contacted.

Lovely views from the lounge and main bedroom

Great apartment

Great location

Great view

We have been with Aspects many times and can truthfully say we have never been disappointed. High Tide is not the best one we have holidayed in, but after saying that it was pretty good and I would stay here again but only at off peak times. It will be quite noisy in high season but if you do not mind that then it will be fine.

Another wonderful holiday and excellent friendly service from the staff at Aspects Holidays. High Tide had everything we needed for a comfortable stay plus a beautiful view, will be booking again next year.

The owners had thought of everything to make our stay so lovely. Comfy beds, nice clean linens, well equipped kitchen and location was amazing! We’ll be back!

It was a treat to be able to enjoy the ever-changing view of the harbour from this apartment

Lovely appartment but would benefit from a larger bed in the main bedroom me and my husband slept in different rooms simply because the bed was uncomfortable and we are smaller framed people.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments. We are sorry to read that you found the double bed to be too small, and therefore too uncomfortable for the both of you. Currently it is advertised as just a standard double, so if you are used to a larger size bed at home, these may understandably seem quite small. We are very sorry if this was not what you had expected. Your suggestion has been passed on to the owner for their future consideration. Thank you again for your helpful comments. Tanya, Customer Services

A great place to stay. Excellent location, very comfortable and well equipped apartment.Great view over the harbour, where there is always something to watch from the French windows, whatever the weather. Nice welcome package of tea, coffee, biscuits and milk - much appreciated after a long journey. The beds are super comfy. V high quality bed linen and lovely fluffy towels. I have stayed here several times and already booked again for next year. Why go anywhere else when I have found an ideal place that provides everything for a great holiday.

Great apartment in a brilliant location. Very well equipped, even down to having a torch with spare batteries.

High Tide is a place you can really relax and enjoy as soon as you walk through the door.

Have already reserved my stay again for next year.

Fantastic location

Lovely, well furnished and equipped flat in a fabulous location, a great base for beach, town and people watching. The views across the harbour are fabulous.

Well equipped and excellently situated.

Great location. Lovely comfortable and cosy in the winter.

Overall excellent accommodation and cleanliness marred only by lack of soundproofing in the upstairs flat.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are so sorry that you experienced noise from the apartment above. Whilst apartments can come with a risk of hearing some noise from adjoining properties, this is not something that has been raised as an issue previously, but with differing guests in the apartment upstairs each week, we would hope that what you experienced was a one-off. It sounds like you enjoyed everything else about it and that location is certainly hard to beat, so we hope that this didn't take the shine off it for you. Tanya, Customer Services

Excellent views weather not so good end of the week but had great view out over the harbour which was great and lovely relaxing holiday A lovely appartment easy walk to front and back of St ives great week

Fantastic location with wonderful views!

Perfect location! Immaculately presented!!! Just an all round perfect place to stay!!!

High Tide is a wonderful apartment, beautifully kept and very well equipped with contemporary and extremely comfortable furnishings and quality bed linen. It's in a great location, convenient for everywhere. A home from home with the benefit of one of the best views in St Ives. Already looking forward to returning.

Lovely stay. We will be back.

Well, what can we say? A terrific apartment- absolutely spotless, fully equipped for a great holiday and a magnificent view.

Great apartment and location for our young family. You couldn't beat a morning coffee looking over the harbour and the buzz as it came to life each day.

Lovely place to stay. Well equipped and perfect location for a family holiday ??

Great apartment and location. In particular, it is worth noting that the beds are very comfortable and the shower is good. The view is excellent. Lovely apartment. We want to return to St Ives and if we do we will be back to Aspects! Thank you.

We would happily stay there again
