SAIL LOFTS NEWS
bright, sunny breaks

If you’re idea of heaven is strolling along St Ives’ magical cobbled streets without battling the crowds then May, June and early July are great months to visit. Mother nature begins cranking up the thermostat and the early summer sun shines.…

As well as having a wonderfully relaxed vibe throughout the early summer months, the town also bursts into colour as the hanging baskets and flowerbeds bloom against the striking azure seas. The beach front cafes have dusted off their outside areas and are a great spot to enjoy a sundowner as the day fades to dusk.

Early summer also marks the foodie season in St Ives, and with all the best restaurants open for business it is the perfect excuse to pull up a chair and while away an afternoon over some great food. Whether you’re in the mood for some fresh local seafood, a laid-back pub lunch or you’d like to linger over a selection of delicious tapas, you will be spoiled for choice in St Ives.

Visit before the schools break up and you will also stumble upon a number of eclectic events in the town. Join in the traditional May Day celebrations on the 5th May, visit the brand new exhibition at Tate St Ives when it reopens its door on the 16th May or skip lunch and head to the St Ives Food and Drink Festival on the 17th and 18th May where you can stock up on locally produced food and drink. There is also a Literature Festival between the 10th – 17th May and if local ale is one of your vices make sure you are in town on the 30th and 31st May for the St Ives Beer Festival.

For further information or to book your early summer break please contact Sam, 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.

Breakfast provided by The Sail Lofts in one of our apartments

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 contact Sam, Abi, Peter or Kelly at The Sail Lofts office for more information on any of the above.

sail lofts boutique

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.

off season retreats

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.

During the quieter months St Ives 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, the pubs have their log fires roaring from noon until night and the mulled cider is a perfect winter warmer.

Whether you’re looking for a weekend get-a-away or a mid-week escape, we are happy to offer short breaks from October to February (excluding school holidays) so please do get in touch if you have any queries. Throughout the off season we can be completely flexible with arrival and departure dates so simply let us know when you’d like to holiday with us and we’ll put some options together for you.

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
