If you haven't seen our previous feature of winter in St Ives find out more here: A Guide to Winter in St Ives.

The fresh chill of a winter's night coupled with the bright sparking lights of Fore Street - the festive season has truly begun. With shops starting to adorn their windows with their entries for the yearly Shop Window Display Competition and St Ives taking on that long-since missed festive charm it's time to start looking forward to making the most of these moments during these uncertain times.

Whether you're shopping around for gifts or looking to take a break on the Cornish coast this winter there's nothing more special than enjoying St Ives from our luxury self catering cottages. Each property can soon become your home-from-home in Cornwall giving you peace of mind or relaxation in the open space of Cornwall's countryside.

We're highlighting some of the best places to visit St Ives this winter, and with late night shopping taking place throughout the chillier months in the lead up to Christmas it's the perfect time to enjoy the cobbled streets of St Ives before going out to enjoy a meal in one of St Ives' unique restuarants.

John's Wine - Perfect for that special gift.

In the midst of Fore Street John's Wine is your go-to destination for craft beers, spirits and much more. John's Wine is a splendid sight for the eyes, with bottles adorning the shelves with vibrant colours and warm light reflected through the glass bottles.

Talay Thai Kitchen

Offering a variety of Thai cuisine, Talay Thai Kitchen is one of St Ives' recent gems. They are first-come first-served so unfortunately you can't book a table in advance but if you don't mind waiting you will end up enjoying some wonderful food.
