August Bank Holiday Week  

Rachel Adams

Although the bank holiday weekend is a few weeks away, it is important to be thinking ahead so you can enjoy a relaxing long weekend. Here at the Sail Lofts in our luxury self-catering apartments, we offer week-long breaks and this August. The August Bank Holiday Weekend this year is Friday 26th until Monday 29th of August, why not enjoy your week in St Ives.

It’s a Little Bit Quieter…

Usually, this week in St Ives is a little bit quieter as it’s coming to the end of the summer holidays and the kids are getting ready to go back to school. So, if you would like to enjoy St Ives in the summer but have it less busy this week is the perfect week for you.

A Day at the Beach

Beach days are a relaxing and perfect way to enjoy your holidays. There are plenty of beautiful beaches for you to enjoy in St Ives for the Bank Holiday break. Here at the Sail lofts we have the perfect location to access all beaches in St Ives with Porthmeor Beach only seconds away from your apartment. Going to the beach is the most idealistic way to spend your stress-free holiday as a family. Feel free to bring your surfboards, body boards etc as these can be stored in our onsite secured wet room.

Daytime Activities

St Ives has plenty of fun and enjoyable activities to see and do in the day. Whether it’s a boat trip along the coasts or a trip to the Tate, options are available for all to enjoy.

Here at the Sail Lofts we support the Tate and receive complimentary entry to the Tate St Ives and Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Gardens. A pre- booked arrival slot is required so please contact our onsite office should you wish to visit either gallery during your stay.

Boat trips are also a popular and enjoyable activity for all the family to enjoy. St Ives Boats offer daily trips along the Cornish coast with a variety of boat trips to choose from, or you can privately hire a boat for the day to explore the coast as you please. The boats are dog friendly so if you are staying in one of our dog friendly apartments they can come along on the day out too!
