Christmas in St Ives

Kelly Weaver

With the festive season fast approaching, many people dream of a white Christmas, with snowflakes gently falling outside their windows. But what if I told you that Christmas can be just as enchanting, if not more so, in a place where snow is a rarity?

St. Ives, offers a unique and magical Christmas experience that will leave you with memories to cherish for a lifetime and here at Sail Lofts we add a sprinkling of luxury touches to ensure a truly wonderful festive stay. So, if you’re considering spending Christmas in St Ives this year, read on to discover what makes a Sail Lofts Christmas so special.

Festive Concierge

Taking centre stage will be our luxury interiors with your very own Christmas tree waiting to be decorated on arrival. We’ll also provide the crackers, the turkey tray and lots of festive touches including gifts under the tree for our younger guests. With the finer details covered, you’re free to sit back and enjoy the anticipation and build up the big day brings.

Last minute Christmas Shopping

St. Ives has a thriving artistic community, and its boutiques and galleries are perfect places to find those last-minute Christmas gifts. Whether you're searching for handmade crafts, local art, or bespoke jewellery, you are sure to find it here.

Glittering Harbour

As night falls, the serene and beautiful harbour transforms into a festive wonderland as the Christmas lights are illuminated. Make sure to stop and enjoy a drink or two in one of the Harbourside bars and if the weather is kind, a stroll beneath the canopy lights and glittering Christmas trees in Fore Street is a wonderful way to round-off an evening.

Boxing Day Swim

The perfect antidote to the festive over indulgence, the annual boxing day swim at Porthminster Beach is a wonderful tradition that pulls quite a crowd. Whether you’re a keen sea swimmer or fancy giving it a try, this is one not to be missed and even if you’re not up for a swim, it’s a great event for the whole family to watch and enjoy.

Space for the entire family

Our unique set-up is perfect for extended family breaks and with a range of accommodation options still available why not choose St Ives for this year’s family Christmas? There really is nothing better than Christmas by the sea and you can enjoy two adjacent properties so the grandparents have their own space or opt for one of our larger apartments and wake up altogether on Christmas morning.
