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 one who returns the ball to the Guildhall steps by midday receives a silver coin. In the afternoon the Mayor then throw pennies from the balcony of the Guildhall for children to collect.

Yet another wonderful stay at Quilters Cabin. Thanks to all concerned during this really difficult time Regards Lynn Wellings

Amazing view and decking area could escape the crowds and enjoy beautiful St Ives .

Fantastic location, right in the heart of St Ives. Beautiful view and outdoor space to enjoy it. Highly recommended.

Marvellous location with the most fantastic terrace and lovely outdoor furniture. Has to be good we keep going back. ????

Another fabulous stay at Quilters Cabin and we will be back next year. We had a few heating and lighting issues in the past but Aspect informed the owners and everything was put right. Well done.

An excellent location; comfortable and well equipped with a useful outside tap and fabulous shed full of little extras for the beach which you didn't have space to bring.

What a beautiful place to stay: right in the heart of St Ives, with the best view ever! We had an amazing family holiday. Nothing beats sitting on that balcony, come rain or shine, reviewing the wonderful day you’ve just had, and planning the next one.

Quilter’s Cabin is in an excellent position in the centre of the town. The views from the terrace were amazing and hard to tear ourselves away from! Comfortable beds and chairs, excellently equipped kitchen, and two great showers. We didn’t hear any noise at night and it was hard to believe we were a few steps from Fore Street. We would definitely stay there again.

This place is not as good as it was a few years ago. The terrace is the best part but the heating and lighting in the kitchen needs sorting out.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments; we are very sorry to hear this. We have since inspected the property and can confirm that an electrician has investigated the lighting and attending to this. We are also looking into your comments about the freezer and heating and will contact the owner with any feedback from our visit. Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention so that we could look into this. Tanya, Customer Services we are pleased to report that the owners have since replaced all linen, installed new lighting, a new boiler and a new Range cooker

Really lovely apartment, outside space is fantastic! Great view, spacious bathroom and comfy beds. Would stay again!

Quilters cabin is a real home from home for us, lovely furnishings, well appointed kitchen and lovely appliances, comfortable and spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. All of which are wonderful but the real asset is the balcony and that view. Awesome.

Quilters cabin is very central, has a wonderful terrace area overlooking the sea, gas bbq. a very well equipped property, a real home from home. Recommend Aspects holidays and will definitely use them again

Amazing views in a central location for the restaurants, shops and pubs. The flat was well equipped and very comfortable for 6.

The Views are splendid, the location is marvellous , the accommodation was comfortable and spacious and Aspects, as always, were helpful, polite and full of the joys. We had a wonderful family holiday

Absolutely one of the best views from patio we have ever had.

Anyone who stays in this apartment will be very pleased, we all loved it , would love to stay in it again if we come to st.ives. It had everything in it that we required, and was situated in a great position and the decking and view were great. Great holiday

Excellent cottage. Lived up to expectations and more. The amount of equipment left for us was amazing even the barbecue with gas provided. The welcome pack was a lovely gesture. This is by far the best one we have stayed in.

A fantastic apartment with a terrace that you will live on!! Very spacious inside, and the only down-side is the noise from Fore Street during the night.

Perfect location and a comfortable property loved the view amazing !!

We had a lovely time in Quilters Cabin- the central location and proximity to beach and town are unbeatable. The terrace with sea views was wonderful. Would definitely stay here again.

Very well appointed apartment with an excellent vista in a superbly central location. Looking forward to another stay there. Cheers Aspects

This is the nicest place we have stayed in St.Ives and we have visited many times. The overall standard is very high and the views from the roof terrace decking are superb. It is right in the centre of town and has every facility including great wifi. Happy to recommend - we have already rebooked for 2016.

Excellent property with fantastic view over the harbour. I would definitely book this property again.

Excellent property in a central position in St Ives. Large terrace partly under cover with fantastic view of the harbour and beyond, and nearby resident seagulls ....

Absolutely great property! In a perfect location in the middle of town yet we never heard any surrounding noise, the thing that made it for us was the view and the balcony which were both breathtaking. A very spacious balcony compared to other properties with a sea view and great added extras like the plug socket and lights outside. Everything was included to make our holiday easy and relaxing eg kitchen equipment, washing machine and tumble dryer. Decorations and furnishings were modern, clean and of a high standard. We couldn't fault it and will definitely be staying here again next year!
