stunning september...

Visit St Ives in September and immerse yourself in the art, culture and wonderful food on offer whilst enjoying the relaxed, laid back atmosphere that a late summer break brings.

Mother Nature can be kind throughout September and lingering summer temperatures often continue. The sunsets are also spectacular at this time of year so we highly recommend an evening cuddled up under a blanket on Porthmeor Beach watching the sun dip out of view.

If art and culture feed your imagination then September is certainly the month for you. On Saturday 13th the St Ives September Festival begins offering two weeks of live music, performance, arts and culture in various venues around the town. With over 300 events planned for this year’s festival there is something for everyone so come along and join in the festival celebrations.

With so much to enjoy you will need time to refuel and in St Ives you are spoilt for choice. Choose from beachside cafes offering Mediterranean cuisine, harbor front kitchens serving traditional fish and chips or push the boat out and treat yourself to a window table in one of St Ives most famous restaurants.
For further information or to book your September break please contact Kelly, Abi or Peter on 01736 799175.

Remember during your self-catering holiday at The Sail Lofts you can take advantage of our Tate St Ives corporate membership cards, which give you free entry to the gallery and Barbara Hepworth museum.

The Perfect Holiday...
This was our second visit to Sail Lofts and it just gets better. We stayed for one week in Curno and a second in Zennor as the weather was so good. The apartments are lovely, well equipped, spacious and very comfortable. The location just a few steps from the beach could not be better. Added to that the staff are superb and cannot do enough for you to make your stay perfect. St Ives has so much to offer and has a number of very good restaurants, as well as galleries, lovely walks and, of course, the beautiful beaches. We are already planning our return visit next year, if not before. The only hard part was coming home! Read the full review here

Location perfect. It is like a home from home with everything that you could possibly need. High quality finish, furniture, towels, bedding etc. We did not want to come home and will certainly stay there again. Loved every minute and could not fault anything! Read the full review here
Vicky S, Manchester. Reviewed June 2014.

Another stay at Curno and another perfect holiday! The Sail Lofts have really nailed it, doesn’t matter which apartment you pick you are always in for a 5-star treat. The apartments are light, airy and spacious with a predominately white theme, wooden floors and tasteful décor. I could bang on about how lovely they are but you just need to take a look at the photos here or on their website to see what you get. These shots aren’t staged, they really are that good!
