A Local's Guide to St Ives

St Ives in West Cornwall is a beautiful cultural hub that draws artists and families alike to its sandy shores. The famous Tate Gallery sits in the centre and is surrounded by cafes and eateries sit behind the beaches.

Top things to do in South Cornwall

Visit the world’s largest indoor rainforest, explore the atmospheric filming locations of Poldark and sunbathe on silky golden sands beside crystal-clear waters; forget flying to the Caribbean or finding a far-flung exotic escape, South Cornwall offers an abundance of exciting days out for all the family. But with so much on offer, how will you decide what to see first?

A beautiful town

While there is no denying that St Ives is naturally beautiful, defining what a traditional Cornish seaside town should be like, the town has grown into so much more than that, becoming a renowned holiday destination; Tate St Ives has been one of the main reasons for this. One of only two Tate galleries outside of London, it kickstarted the now buzzing art scene within the town, and its recent expansion reaffirms the town's status as the art capital of Cornwall.

That being said, people still flock to this town for its sheer beauty. On a sunny day, there are few better spots to be in the South West, with the crystal clear waters lapping up onto the sandy beach, local sailing boats bobbing in the harbour, and glorious views across the sea. The great quality of restaurants throughout the town, along with the surf at Porthminster beach, make this a fantastic holiday destination, and we have plenty of cottages with sea views for you to pick from.
