Luxury holiday cottages in St Ives

As we polish off the last of the mince pies and reluctantly stow the Baileys, we're welcoming the slow return of normality and brand new decade! Despite the excitement of a fresh start, we can all be forgiven for feeling more than a little despondent in the absence of all those little luxuries that we've become so accustomed to and nothing beats the blues like something to look forward to. With February half term on the horizon, a stint in a luxury cottage in St Ives could be just the ticket so why not plan your next winter retreat?

Family holidays in St Ives

With a good track record of gloriously bright, crisp and sunny days, February half term is a fantastic time to enjoy all that Cornwall has to offer without the summer crowds. Our holiday cottages in St Ives place you mere seconds from the wild wonder of Porthmeor beach making it all too easy to enjoy the sea and sand whilst being able to head home quickly and easily to warm up. With beach towels, and windbreaks provided there's no need to take half of the beach home with you and our onsite wetroom makes showering off a breeze. As Sail Lofts guests benefit from discounted lessons with St Ives Surf School, half term is a great time to get in some opportune practice in the water ahead of the busier summer months.

Restaurants, shops and galleries

One of the joys of visiting St Ives out of season is the spontaneity afforded by not having to book everything ahead of time. With a huge array of restaurants and cafes at your disposal from the casual American dining style of the Hub, sumptuous fresh flavours at Porthminster Beach Cafe and innovative tapas at Porthmeor - when it comes to eating out the world is your oyster although a St Ives Bakery pasty closely guarded against seagulls is still an absolute must! Likewise you will find perusing the shops a far more leisurely experience than in the summer months and don't forget to stop by the Tate Gallery and magical Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden with complimentary admittance as a Sail Lofts guest.
