Conor Fletcher

Now we're in the midst of winter in St Ives the time has begun to wrap up warm, put on the bobbly hat and go on an exploration of Cornwall's coast. But if you're not feeling up for the task then don't worry, St Ives has so much still to enjoy.

Braving the chill and discovering Cornwall's illustrious coastline is something that needs to be seen while you're here. The dramatic sights and sounds of crashing waves against the cliff-face is exactly what helped shape the aura of the county; from the poetry of Betjeman to the pages of Winston Graham's Poldark; the sights and sounds of the coast have been so often described throughout Cornwall's illustrious literary history.

From the Sail Lofts luxury apartments in St Ives you can venture forth toward D.H. Lawrence's once-home of Zennor, braving the journey across the coast soaking up the inspirational views the journey offers simply head out from your luxury apartment, all wrapped up, and begin your adventure.

The Walk To Zennor
