Takeaways are great, but when you are in St Ives you can’t beat a pasty.

It’s great funĀ sitting on a bench by the sea in St Ives eating a pasty.

St Ives in December

St Ives looks great all year round, here it looks very different from how it does in the summer months, but it still looks amazing.

St Ives looks great all year round, here it looks very different from how it does in the summer months, but it still looks amazing. Our cottages are getting booked up for summer, don’t leave it too late if you want a week away.

Seal cubs are born in August and September, perfect timing for summer visitors to take the short boat ride from St Ives harbour to Seal Island to see them. They are incredibly cute !

A night in ’52 when a warship was wrecked on St Ives beach

The warship, HMS Wave, was trying to shelter in the harbour from a storm when it got washed ashore. Everyone was saved and some residents still remember that night.

The Minack Theatre, close to St Ives.

The Minack Theatre. An amazing outdoor theatre, a lot of which was built by a single woman.

A visit to the Minack to watch a play is a very different experience to a traditional theatre, and the Minack, with its back drop of the Atlantic, is truly spectacular.
