December Breaks in St Ives

Hélène Chaussavoine

Going on a holiday off-season can be very appealing.

Experience the best of St Ives without the summer crowds during the Winter months: Surfing on Porthmeor Beach, just a stone-throw away from your luxury accomodation, strike out on windswept coastal walks and end your day by a wonderful evening in one of the award-winning restaurants in town. Then hunker down in your cosy self-catering apartment footsteps from the sea. Winter breaks in St Ives are wild, romantic and energising.

Dog-friendly beaches

This is the best time of the year for your four-legged friend as all the dog bans are lifted and your best friend is free to run and explore the wonderful coastline of Cornwall. To celebrate this time of the year, we are offering all hounds a free stay with us in our dog-friendly accomodation from 30th November to 20th December, so everyone can have the holiday they deserve.
