New Year, New St Ives

Conor Fletcher

With the start of the year here there is so much that we have to look forward to in the coming twelve months. Coming to stay with us in our luxury apartments in St Ives is the best way to experience all the town has to offer, from feeling the sand between your toes on Porthmeor Beach to sipping coffee overlooking the harbour front in the refreshing chill of the morning. St Ives is laden with things to look forward to this year, so here's some of our picks on the horizon.

Beaches and Coastal Walks

What's St Ives without visiting the beach? In either direction you look from our luxury apartments in St Ives you can follow your feet to the coast, and with it the luscious sands beside the sea. Porthmeor is directly out the door, just down the slipway and on to the open expanse, or make your way to the perfectly nestled Porthgwidden and enjoy the quaintness of a beach protected from the waves of the Atlantic.

If you're feeling a little adventurous head down (or up) the coast and discover why the scenic nature of Cornwall pulls people back year upon year, travel to Zennor or the other direction across to the dunes at Gwithian before making your way to the edges of the ocean overlooking the famed Godrevy Lighthouse.

The best part, all of these options along the coast are year-round activities. All you would need to do is put your shoes on and step out to explore.

St Ives September Festival 2018

Last year, the St Ives September Festival was one of the outstanding events to take place in the town, and we would only expect the same for this year. Artists, poets, musicians and scribes come to St Ives to celebrate the arts in all of their weird and wonderful forms. With a backdrop of late summer St Ives has never been more wonderful to enjoy, the high heat of the season has dropped away a little, leaving wonderfully relaxing lazy afternoons in the bustling streets. The Sail Lofts luxury apartments in St Ives are right in the mix of it all too, explore artist's studios or immerse yourself in music amongst some of the town's most memorable creators.

Tate, St Ives

It's gone through months of development but at the end of last year it was finally complete. Tate, St Ives has gone through a complete refurbishment and expansion creating new exhibitions along the way. The year we've got some exciting things to look forward to; Virginia Woolf: An Exhibition Inspired by Her Works runs through February into April. Not only this, the gallery is running a exhibition of the St Ives artists who helped make the town Cornwall's hotspot for the arts. If your staying with us in our luxury apartments in St Ives you're right in the heart of it all, nestled in the 'old town' the apartments are surrounded by studios and galleries leaving you the option to soak up the locations heritage.

May Half Term

What's better than a getaway to your own luxury apartment in St Ives in the warmth of May Half Term's sunny weather? In this pre-summer escape you can enjoy the best of the town's offerings, the town gets warmer day-by-day yet the streets are not yet as populated in the same way as summer. If you're looking for wonderful days out on the beach without the bustle of summer then this is the time to visit St Ives.
