We stayed here in October half term last year and it was perfect in every way. The views are breathtaking and we had great fun watching people getting wet just outside the window! We have booked again for this October and can't wait. We stay twice a year in St Ives and this is the best holiday home we have in. Just fabulous!

Past Customer,

This was our second time staying in Lantern Loft and it didn't disappoint. Location and views really are fantastic and there is everything you need inside the cottage. Cannot fault anything and will definitely be staying again.

Past Customer,

Wonderful cottage, well equipped, beautiful outlook. We can't wait to come back.

Guest Book C,

Should have been in Barcelona celebrating our Silver Anniversary but thanks to the Coronavirus we ended up here instead. What a great replacement. The Lantern Loft is well-equipped, comfy and amazing views. Would definitely return and bring the dog.

Guest Book C,


St Ives is one of Cornwall's top destinations and a beautiful seaside town where visitors can enjoy a traditional beach holiday with a twist. It's easy to understand why the town has been attracting painters, sculptors and ceramists for decades with its stunning scenery and natural quality of light- one of only four Tate Galleries in the world is located here in the heart of the town. The town itself arcs around the working harbour- the heart of the historic fishing community. You could lose yourself for hours in the charming cobbled streets which are crammed with gift and craft shops, art galleries, top notch restaurants and welcoming local pubs- a real treasure trove just waiting to be explored!

St Ives also has four fabulous beaches, Porthmeor, Porthgwidden, Harbour beach and Porthminster which between them offer miles of golden sand and hours of building sand castles, playing in the rock pools and other family friendly activities. Dogs are welcomed out of season. Throughout the year, St Ives has a busy event calendar including the St Ives Food & Drink Festival in May and a Music & Arts Festival in September.

So what are you waiting for? Why not discover what St Ives is all about today!
