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.

Fantastic views. Lovely apartment. .Already booked again.

Sunnyside is the best place to stay in St Ives… the location.. views… comfort and coziness are absolutely perfect!

Lovely apartment with fantastic views over the harbour, great location for beaches and harbour access and close to shops and restaurants.

Lovely week spent at 5 Sunnyside, lovely position to sit and relax watching the world go by.

Another amazing holiday in St.ives. First time we have stayed at sunnyside but would certainly return.

2nd consecutive year staying at 5 Sunnyside, we’ve never returned to the same accommodation twice so that’s real praise.

Perfect view of the harbour, brilliantly clean and incredibly well equipped. The quality of the bed linen, towels and cookware was top notch. Another fabulous stay!

Lovely spacious flat with incredible views.

Great location to explore the Cornish coast and plenty to do in St Ives itself; we didn't need a car (used local buses), and it was near two excellent swimming beaches. We never tired of the view, and the apartment was spacious and generally well equipped. Bring ear plugs for the seagulls - although even then, they won't really be sufficient!

Stayed before. Lovely apartment with fantastic views over St Ives already booked for next year.

Fantastic apartment and the view was excellent. Already booked for March again this year.

Another spectacular week. I could just sit and watch the views for hours - and did. Lots of restaurants claim the best view in St Ives but I think this beats them all. Apartment is very comfortable and has everything you need for a week away.

What a beautiful apartment cosy and comfortable. Everything you need. Fantastic views Clean and warming on arrival. Perfect location. Aspects delivered on every basis Thank you so much.

We love this apartment - such a bright and welcoming space. The view over the harbour is beautiful, and always there to enjoy, come rain or shine. And when it does shine the sun lights up the apartment, really enhances that holiday feeling. There are quite a few steps to climb, but that makes the view so much better. Beds are really comfy, kitchen very well provisioned for eating in, and the newly fitted bathroom is excellent. Well recommended.

Perfect in every way. clear instructions and regular communication provided, helped to put our minds at ease. Highly recommended for accommodation and support

Best view of the harbour in St Ives

We had such a lovely week in 5 Sunnyside. The apartment has the most wonderful view of the harbour and is located seconds from the Wharf and Harbour. 5 Sunnyside is the best maintained holiday accommodation we’ve stayed in around St Ives. We loved it so much that we’ve booked again for next summer already!

Best flat by far. Perfect for our little family. The views are to die for and location is second to none. The customer service was outstanding from aspects. So pleasant and helpful.

If you want stunning views of the harbour and beyond in a beautiful apartment this is your place.

Sunnyside apartment 5 . WOW . Ive stayed in St I’ves for 12 years at least once a year . This is by far the nicest apartment I’ve ever stayed in . Fully equipped, fantastic location, so homely, even down to the old phone . You won’t be disappointed staying here . I’ve never used Aspect holidays before & was very impressed from the booking process to being called on the day to say the apartment was ready and we could check in early. 10/10 for the apartment & aspect holidays ??

We had an excellent week in Sunnyside apartment 5. The views are outstanding. Would highly recommend.

This was our 5th time in this apartment and it was so lovely for us to return for our first holiday since Covid. As always the apartment seems to welcome you the minute you step through the front door and the relaxation begins. In our opinion Sunnyside has the best views and position in the whole town.

Another fabulous week in this apartment. I've lost count of how many times we've stayed here. Each time I think it will be the last and we should try somewhere else but I've already sent in a reservation request for next year as it is such a great place to just sit and enjoy the view.

Lovely relaxed atmosphere at this great apartment! The best views of the harbour and St Ives Bay you will find!

Great location, with a great view, and lovely and warm in December. Nice decor and everything worked well including Wi-Fi and good telly. Well-equipped kitchen. Plenty of hot water for baths. Hooks everywhere.

The small single mattress was only 2.5 feet wide and not so comfortable. It had second mattress underneath for making it into a kingsize double. However, we decided there wouldn’t be enough room if we converted it to kingsize as it would mean there was a kingsize double and single in the same smallish room. But it was ok as too singles for us.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We always aim to be open and honest with property descriptions, so we are sorry if the bed arrangement was not what you were expecting. Generally, zip and link twins or trundle beds will have 2'6 mattresses, so they are just a little narrower than a standard single. The owners have tried to offer as much flexibility in sleeping arrangements as possible, by having the trundle bed and another single bed in that bedroom, but we appreciate that it may not suit everyone when the trundle is made up to a king-size bed, alongside the additional single bed. We have tried to show as best as possible the layout of that bedroom, so we are sorry if that was not clear enough. This is the first comment we have received on the limited space in the bedroom, so for now we will leave the description how it is, but if we are to receive similar comments from other guests, we will look into updating the website description. Thank you for highlighting this and we are glad to hear that this property still worked well for you. Tanya, Customer Services

Had a great week…. Lots of lovely food… great weather too for November… St Ives never disappoints us

First time to St Ives and it lived up to my expectations. Aspects holidays was recommended by work colleague who has family in Cornwall. The apartment was beautiful, the children and grandchildren were impressed with the accommodation. They were screaming with delight with all the facilities provided, the location, the views. One issue with the shower sorted. Great to have a washing machine although the dryer needs attention as had to put items on the rack to dry. I now have muscles on my legs climbing up 2 flights of stairs twice a day but it was all worth it :)

This apartment is a little gem! Fabulous view and in a great location. It has everything you need for a family holiday in St Ives. We loved it so much, we are going again! ?

Have stayed in many apartments in St Ives over the past 20 years, but I'd say that 5 Sunnyside is the best yet. Location, layout, view – VIEW! – comfort (especially the bed: probably the comfiest I've ever had in a holiday let). It was extremely busy in town, but being here gave you the best of both worlds: you were in a prime location, but removed from the hustle and bustle. Top tip: we rented a beach hut at Porthgwidden for the week, and it was worth every penny.

Had a lovely holiday the view from the property was spectacular.wardrobes we’re quiet small and if traveling with a small child I would recommend taking a bed guard as single bed is quiet high but on the whole a nice apartment.

Lovely apartment, comfortable, fabulous views.

We love dealing with Aspects because the staff are so friendly, efficient and very professional. We cannot speak highly enough of the company and the staff. We always recommend them to our friends and family. Thank you.

We had a brilliant time, it was perfect for us and we will be back!

We had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay here and look forward to a return visit. Luckily for us the tide was in first thing in the morning and we watched the fishing boats return and unload their catch and the seal/s swimming below us all in the comfort of our window seats.

Excellent location and clean well equipped property. We will be coming back, which says it all !

We had a lovely holiday. The apartment is great with a brilliant location and a stunning view over the harbour.

Great week at Sunnyside 5 with incredible views across the Harbour to Porthminster and Godrevy. So convenient and close to all the beaches. Comfy beds and well equipped.

We had a very enjoyable week in the apartment. It was very cosy, fantastic views, well equipped and a brilliant location. Would definitely stay again.

This is the most perfect accommodation we have stayed in in St Ives, we love it so much. We had a lovely time, as always the weather was changeable to say the least but who cares when you are in St Ives!!

We really like the appartment. It is small, but fine. The view to the habour is spectacular. It is far enough away from the loud bars at the other sides of the waterfront. In the courtyard we could keep our boards. It even had a shower in the courtyard for showering the boards and wetsuit. Overall it is a great appartment for a family

We had a great week at Sunnyside Apartment 5. It is in an excellent elevated location with possibly the best views in all of St Ives! It certainly felt like it. The ever-changing colours with the change in tides and sunlight really struck us. The apartment is bright, beautifully decorated and furnished, and also very well equipped. It is away from the hustle and bustle and therefore so much quieter in the evening than we expected - often the only sound when sleeping was the waves and the seagulls... It is so handy for the different beaches too. We parked up our car in the long-stay Island car park and left it all week. It was so easy to explore everything by foot. from the Wharf.

We highly recommend Apt 5.

5 Sunnyside is a wonderful apartment with views to die for, highly recommended.

Such a welcoming and comfortable place to stay - absolutely everything you could need, plus the most amazing view!

Lovey views.

5 Sunnyside in St Ives is a tiny piece of heaven in one of the loveliest spots of Cornwall. From beautiful linens and furnishings through to the best seats in the house for the finest views in St Ives this apartment ticks all the boxes and is First Class all the way.

From the moment walking in to see the amazing view to the time we left , a wonderful place with thoughtful furnishings and high spec comforts. After days spent enjoying wondering around the town and beeches it was always great to get back and watch the evening unfold with a drink on the balcony. You had the feeling we where in the best place to stay.

Top class accommodation, in an excellent position and outstanding views. Would thoroughly recommend this flat.

Absolutely amazing cottage. Beautiful panoramic views. Would recommend this cottage to anyone. Can't wait to return in the future.

One of the very best places to stay in St.Ives

The apartment is beautiful and location superb

Lovely place to stay. Stunning views, a home away from home. The owners have thought of everything to make it as comfortable as possible. Loads to do and lots of nice places to eat.

Relaxing retreat with awesome harbour views.

Fabulous location & beautiful views of the harbour. We'd love to stay again. Though do be aware there are lots of steps to the front door and nowhere nearby to park while you unload you car.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments, we are delighted to hear that you would love to return and that you enjoyed those amazing views of the harbour. Thank you for highlighting the steps to the front door and the situation with unloading. We always want to be as accurate as possible with property descriptions, so mention the two flights of steps to the top floor entrance, on our website, and both of these points are certainly something to consider before booking; though hopefully you will agree that the stunning views make the climb worthwhile. If anyone would like more information before boooking, please do get in contact with the sales team, who would be more than happy to answer any questions. Tanya, Customer Services.
