Reasons for trip


I fell in love with St. Ives many many years ago and am now fortunate to live only ninety minutes drive away, day trip able, but I prefer to stay two nights or more.
The town is a delight sitting on it’s small peninsula so almost surrounded by beautiful beaches and the Atlantic Ocean. I have walked the coast on many occasions, stopping at the harbour or to sit on a bench people watching before continuing round.
St. Ives town is made up of narrow, mainly traffic free streets heading up and down, twisting here and there. As i wander I stop to comment on this pretty cottage or that interesting old building. There are many interesting shops, potteries, art galleries, Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth museum and garden. When I visited in April the cherry blossom was in full flower, a beautiful bonus.
A good variety of restaurants please everyone’s taste buds but sitting on the sea front eating fish and chips is a must for me, taking care the sea gulls are not too near.
Yes, St. Ives has something for everyone and I’m already thinking about my next visit.
