Mother nature has thrown all sorts of weather at us over the past few weeks but here at The Sail Lofts we’ve stayed warm and dry and have come through the storms unscathed and we want to reassure you that despite the media hype, we are very much open for business in Cornwall…
Yes it’s true that we’ve had some pretty terrific storms, some very gusty winds and impressively high tides but we’re pretty used to extreme weather here in St Ives so we were all well prepared. Most of the local businesses have weathered the storms fairly well and its business as usual so don’t dismiss that last minute winter break, we’d love to have you.
If the weather is a little mixed The Sail Lofts is a great base for a spot of storm watching. Head down to Porthmeor and watch the Atlantic rollers crash ashore or hole up in one of the harbourfront restaurants and watch the changing skies whilst lingering over a long lazy lunch.
On the bright and sunny days (yes, we do get quite a few of these in winter) nothing beats an early morning stroll across the harbour just after sunrise, make sure you take the camera along too, it’s our favourite spot to grab a morning photo.
Whilst the rail network has been most affected by the wild weather the main roads into, and around, Cornwall remain fully operational. Extra flights have also been laid on from Gatwick to Newquay and National Express offer a coach service to St Ives from most major towns and cities. If you are thinking about coming down by plane, we’ve arranged for a heavily discounted transfer rate from our friends at Apple Cabs.
For further information or to book please contact Sam, Kelly, Abi or Peter on 01736 799175. Don’t forget that during February and March we are completely flexible on arrival and departure dates so you tell us when you’d like to come and we’ll do the rest.
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.

Our aim is to provide our guests with a high-quality personal service. Nothing is ever too much trouble and we go that extra mile which is what we think sets us apart. Our on-site concierge office is open six days a week and Sam, Kelly, Peter or Abi are always willing to help, whether it’s unpacking your pre-arrival shopping, arranging spa treats at The Sail Lofts Ocean Spa or making restaurant reservations on your behalf, and this year we have an exciting range of new services we’ve added to our concierge.
To make life easier for those of you travelling with young babies we’ve introduced our baby concierge, a service which allows you to send us your shopping list of baby essentials such as nappies, wipes and snacks and have them waiting for you when you arrive so you can free up some car space for a few more luxuries.
If you’re joining us for a romantic getaway or you just want to treat that special person in your life take a look at the new range of romance packages or arrange for a fresh, delicious breakfast to be delivered so the two of you can enjoy breakfast in bed in the comfort of your self catering apartment.
If, whilst visiting St Ives, you enjoy sampling the fresh St Ives seafood, we now have an arrangement with Matthew Stevens & Sons fishmongers allowing you to order fish, which is delivered fresh to your door (or fridge if you are out) on the day of your choice.
These are just a selection of the services we’re able to offer, visit our concierge page to find out more or call Sam, Kelly, Peter or Abi on 01736 799175 and remember, if you have a request that isn’t covered please ask as we’ll always do our best to help.

To find out more, why not take a look at our St Ives accommodation, seconds away from Porthmeor Beach and only a few minutes walk from the harbour front.
Our fabulous little boutique just off the harbour front in St Ives (where The Sail Lofts Ocean Spa used to be) sells a fantastic selection of homewares, accessories, original artwork and fun, colourful screen prints all of which make lovely gifts for friends or for you to take home as a reminder of your holiday in St Ives.
Our quirky collection includes funky wooden seagulls, reclaimed driftwood coffee tables and candleholders, beautiful elm mirrors, distressed wooden photo frames and a selection of ceramics that are sure to add the wow-factor to any home. The theme is definitely nautical chic but we think this fits our St Ives location perfectly.
We also have some colourful screen prints by local artist Dena O’Brien, original artwork from Sonya Walters and stunning sepia photos of Cornwall from local photographer Clive Vincent.
The boutique was inspired by our guests, many of whom would see items in their apartment and ask where they could be purchased from and you can expect the usual Sail Lofts quality in all of the pieces on sale.
The Sail Lofts Boutique is open Monday – Friday 9.30am – 5pm and Saturday 10am – 4pm.
For the spa-lovers amongst you don’t worry, The Sail Lofts Ocean Spa is still able to offer a luxurious range of treatments from its new treatment room within The Sail Lofts complex.
Make the most of the deserted beaches; crisp sunny days and winter strolls along some of the most beautiful coastal paths in the country with an off-season break in one of our sumptuously finished apartments. For something a little cosier why not give The Sail Lofts Cottage a try? With its gas stove fire and homely design, it is an ideal bolthole in the chillier months.
St Ives in winter has a very unique and magical charm, it adopts a serene calm that is impossible not to love. Window seats are rarely a problem, the sea has a dark, appeal best enjoyed with a steaming hot chocolate and the pubs have their log fires roaring from noon until night.
Whether you’re looking for a weekend get-a-away, a mid-week escape or a week long treat we still have properties available throughout January and February so please do get in touch if you have any queries. And please remember during your holiday in our self-catering accommodation to take advantage of our Tate St Ives corporate membership cards which gives you complimentary access to Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden and Museum.
A little reminder to all guests, when staying at The Sail Lofts, you have full access to our on-site concierge service so if there is anything at all our team can do to help, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Our team are happy to help with anything they can from restaurant recommendations and reservations to grocery orders and days out ideas to delivering fresh warm croissants and hot coffee in the morning. In fact, if there is anything at all we can do to make your stay with us more enjoyable please contact us on 01736 799175 – quirky requests encouraged, we do like a challenge!
