Local Area

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!


St Ives is always fun and when the sun shines it is just great. A nice flat too.Mr Nick Warde - 6th August 2018
We visit St Ives same week every year in July, and An Kres apartment is the best yet by far. Service provided by Cornish Horizons has been excellent also, with prompt replies to our enquiries. So much so, that we're looking to book the same apartment for 2019.Mrs Lisa O'Shea - 30th July 2018

Fantastic week. Combined with a full weeks heat wave, perfect beach weather. Location of the flat is good for everything and is quieter than I was expecting given it's central position. Cool and airy, easy to keep clean. Live music in the Kettle & Wink was good - you can join in on the open session if you want. Really enjoyed it all - thanks.Paul, Alison, Heather & Elizabeth - 26th July 2014

Our 3rd year running spending a week in St Ives. Flat met all out needs as a good central base. Kids would have liked Wi-Fi - just meant another evening in the Lifeboat Inn using theirs. Our favourite things to do - Surf school at Porthmeor Beach, eating & drinking at Lifeboat Inn, shopping of Fore Street, Penwith Gallery, something different Barnoon Cemetary (finding Alfred Wallis' grave!!) Will be back in St Ives and may well use this flat again if available. Cheers :)Tony, Jane, Zoe & Sam - 31st May 2014
