‘All the superlatives are true’

Stayed in Island for last 6 days and can genuinely say from our experience that the excellence of the ratings are totally justified. The accommodation is really of the highest standard in terms of decor, furnishing, maintenance and cleanliness. It was one of the few places where you could say that it was a pleasure to be stuck in when it rained (and being Cornwall in the autumn it occasionally did!). The location is perfect - wonderful to be so near Porthmeor Beach and the Tate, yet also close to Fore Street shops.

‘Best place to stay in St Ives’

This is our 3rd stay at The Sail Lofts and we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. Ocean is a large 3 bedroom apartment with a view down the slipway to Porthmeor beach. The apartment is immaculately clean and beautifully designed. The kitchen is well equipped as is the whole apartment including beach towels and wind break.

Our favourite feature is enjoying the sea breeze when the windows are open at the front and the doors overlooking the courtyard. The staff, as always are friendly and helpful. Already looking forward to our next stay.

A spring sanctuary...

As delicate buds unfurl and daylight extends its reach into the evenings, the promise of spring lingers just around the corner, marking the arrival of warmer days.

A wonderful season in which to explore St Ives, spring goes hand-in-hand with time outdoors. Add in the invigorating sea breeze and the unhurried rhythm of life, and it sets the stage for a restorative spring getaway in one of Cornwall’s most favoured spots

Out of Season Breaks

Outside of the school holidays, away from the summer months the off-season is a time to discover the many wonders that Cornwall has to offer you, from beaches with their sand dune edges to the wondrous Cornish coastline, there's nothing better to enjoy as Cornwall gets a little quieter.
