Nice and clean, on the small side but we knew this beforehand. Perfect location, couldn't be happier

Mr Martin A,


St Ives is an idyllic Cornish port in the West of Cornwall surround by turquoise bays. Once a busy pilchard harbour, St Ives later became the centre of Cornwall's arts scene in the 1920s and '30s, when luminary figures such as Barbara Hepworth,Bryan Pearce, Ben Nicholson and Naum Gabo migrated here in search of artistic freedom. Numerous galleries fill its cobbled streets, as well as the renowned Tate St Ives.
