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.

Our 3rd visit to this excellent apartment with wonderful views. You need to be quite fit for the 3 flights of stairs, but well worth it. The car parking facility is very handy as there is problems finding spaces in st.Ives. Hope to be back next year.

May 2019

The location cannot be bettered, the views are fantastic and you are right in the heart of St Ives with plenty of restaurants and drinking establishments close by and the added bonus of a parking space.

May 2019

Fabulous apartment, great location, fantastic views. Everything you need for a relaxing break.

Apr 2019

We really enjoyed our stay at Smeatons Pier Penthouse. It was our second stay here and would recommend it to anyone who wants a peaceful place to stay with amazing views and very good facilities, especially the comfy bed. There are 3 flights of stairs which may cause a problem for some but for those that can manage it you won't be disappointed. We really appreciated the flowers, wine, tea, coffee etc that were provided for our stay. I'm sure we will visit again.

Mar 2019

A beautiful apartment. Very comfortable with stunning views.

Mar 2019

Childhood holidays relived in this gorgeous little gem of an apartment! Loved it!

Superb location with stunning sea views of all around the harbour, very comfortable penthouse apartment with the added bonus of a parking space which is perfect in high season would definitely recommend and will be returning again. Mr & Mrs Stoneley Leicestershire.

Stunning views whichever window you looked out from.

Jul 2018

Stunning apartment with unrivaled views of the bay and harbour. The apartment made a good holiday into our best visit to St Ives yet over 10 years. Will definitely be back next year.

Jul 2018

The apartment is perfectly located for all of St Ives high spots. The harbour, the beaches, the shops and the restaurants. The views of the sea and the harbour are truly amazing. Watching the sun rise was an unexpected bonus. If you love St Ives don’t miss out on this apartment.

Jul 2018

A lovely penthouse flat with wonderful views. Well appointed and a parking space. It is not suitable for older or infirm because of all the stairs. Our 2nd visit and we hope to return next year.

Jun 2018

This apartment has the best views of the harbour and sea. We had our honeymoon here and fell in love all over again. We loved to sit in the bay window and watch the sea and world go by. Added to this having a parking space close by was a huge bonus We were impressed by Aspects Holidays professionalism and communication during our stay. Highly recommended

Apr 2018

Unbeatable views from the penthouse. Ideal location and public areas ie the entrance and stairs were beautifully carpeted and freshly painted. Everything you could want in the apartment was there and very good quality

Mar 2018

This is a wonderful apartment situated in a prime location to explore St Ives and enjoy harbourside views when eating any meals in. Close the windows for a peaceful rest or open up and let the sea air and seaside noises enter the space.
Watch the daytime activities and people transform with the illuminations of the night lights on the harbour whether the tide is in or out.

Mar 2018

Our second stay at the Penthouse apartment and not disappointed. The light living space with beautiful views over the sea, harbour and rooves, sitting in the bay window reading, knitting or watching the surfers and seals. Absolutely worth the walk up the 3 flights of stairs and the sloping roof in the bedroom! Will be back!

Jan 2018

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your review, it's great to hear that you loved the views from there as much as we all do! Being up on the third floor involves a number of stairs which we refer to in the description. The parking is only suitable for a small to medium size car, so may take a little manoeuvring, but a great additon, we hope you will agree, in a town where parking can be quite limited; we hope that you found it useful to have the parking so close by. For anyone interested in this property, if you are concerned with number of steps or parking size, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us to check on its suitability before booking. Tanya, Customer Services.

The property is in a very good location excellent views and will defiantly book again

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments; those views really are spectacular from there, so we are very glad to hear that you enjoyed them. We are sorry that you found the bed uncomfortable; it can be very difficult to find a mattress that will suit everyone and it is dissapointing to hear that it was not to your preference. For now, we will monitor comments to keep an eye on guests preferences over the coming months. Thanks again. Tanya, Customer Services.

Fantastic & amazing views all round

The views from this property are amazing. I doubt there is anything to match them anywhere in St Ives. If anything the brochure undersells how fantastic this apartment is!
