Imagine looking at a picture postcard every time you walk past a window. Well that's what you will certainly be doing if you choose to stay at Smeaton's Terrace. This stunning split-level apartment comfortably sleeps five guests and you will be spoilt for choice on which chair to kick back in and wonder at the breathtaking views. It will take a lot to prise you away from such an amazing property, but when you do finally head out, collect the car from the private parking area and explore the delights that Cornwall has to offer.

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.

Beautiful comfortable house, lovely location.

An amazing stay. We've been staying in St Ives for many years and this has to be the most stunning of locations. Great to fall asleep to the sound of the waves and to wake to a fabulous view of the sun rising every day. The can't be a better location in St Ives. The house is is beautifully decorated with every detail thought of - even down to the 2 sets of binoculars left in the bay window for seal and bird watching.

Oct 2018

Excellent property. Very quiet even when town was very busy. Not even seagulls noisy there. Very clean, great position,and views from rear windows/terrace superb. Best property we've stayed in from approx 10 in St Ives. Happy to recommend to anyone.

We loved Smearon’s Terrace last year and we loved it this year and we can’t wait until we visit again next year. It is everything you would want in a seaside apartment it has its own naturally beautiful setting. We were very reluctant to leave.

Jul 2018

We thought that Smeatons Terrace was an ideal apartment in a beautiful spot. It more than lived up to expectations and the photographs. It felt more like a home and everywhere was spotlessly clean and comfortable. We loved it so much that we booked it again straightaway. There were many thoughtful aspects to it. We lacked nothing. We have stayed in many, many holiday self catering apartments and cottages and there’s isnt one to beat it in the UK.

Sep 2017

This is a fantastic property. The views are amazing. The owners have thought of everything when furnishing and equipping this house. Nice and spacious inside and the beds were comfortable. Even though the house is near the town centre it was surprisingly quiet. Will definitely return.

Sep 2017

If you want to wake to the rising sun, wave and wildlife watching this cottage is the one.

Sep 2017

We loved everything about Smeatons Terrace. It was comfortable and welcoming. The view from the windows and Terrace was second to none. Watching the waves and hearing them at night was fantastic. The cottage is in a fabulous location. Quiet at night but just a stroll into the centre of St Ives. It couldn't have been better. We loved every minute of our holiday.
