March in St Ives

Katy Peck

Spring is here! Finally! Winter’s heavy head of rain, continuous morning frost, and the habitual stinking flus, colds, aches and pains doing the rounds are finally on their way out of the door! Hurrah!

As a team we love Spring for so many reasons, one of them being that St Ives bursts in to life before anywhere else in the county due to its unique balmy climate, and we are blessed with a show of some of the most wonderful sub tropical and Mediterranean flora imaginable.

Also March is a wonderful month, poised just perfectly for you to appreciate both the staggering sunrises that crest over the Harbour in time for a very social morning coffee in Pells at around 8am – 8.30, and just the most vibrant cerise to rose tinted sunsets across Porthmeor Beach between 5.30 – 6pm every evening.

It is in these twilight moments that you capture a different side to St Ives, one that makes these cobbled streets glow and come alive, sparkling in the wake of the day and evening ahead. Bringing an excitement of what’s to come, that I can not quite match in experience to any other seaside village in the south west that I have had the pleasure to frequent, St Ives just has it.

Has it something to do with the way in which the sunrises and falls across this north coast peninsula that forges out in to the Atlantic, surrounded mostly by the sea?

For over a century the light of St Ives has tickled, compelled and amused many artists, thespians, and musicians alike, inspired by the unique clarity and qualities that the light of St Ives evokes, forging life long quests in capturing what it is that makes St Ives so very unique.

With high demand for our smaller luxury apartments throughout March we have just discounted all of our larger St Ives accommodation to match the prices on remaining availability to suit anyone looking for a last minute St Ives March retreat.
