Conor Fletcher

Located in the heart of 'old St Ives' the Sail Lofts luxury accommodation in Cornwall is perfectly situated for a St Ives escape this spring. Discovering what makes the town so special from the relaxing atmosphere of your luxury apartment in St Ives is easy, simply sit and enjoy the day pass you by in the open expansive upstairs kitchen and living area, overlooking the Burthallan Hills and the greater area of this picturesque Cornish town.

A little known fact about Godrevy is that it was once home to the hustle and bustle of St Ives' nightlife. Features of the former nightclub still exist seen in the entrance staircase one of the unique hallmarks of the building's storied past. At the same time however Godrevy encapsulates what makes Cornwall so special, the vast and open the apartment looks over the town from its dual Juliette balconies letting in the sunlight and a cool breeze on a spring afternoon. The apartment is perfect to experience Cornwall for couples and families alike as it has the room to sit back and relax after a day spent exploring the town or the surrounding coast.

The apartment's namesake is without question worth a trip to see. Godrevy Lighthouse lies in the distance and is perfect to visit if you're looking for the sealife of St Ives as seals often frequent the area. Boat tours from the harbour front take you across Gwithian to the lighthouse made famous by Virginia Woolf . The tour circles around the lighthouse which functioned for just over 150 years before heading back to St Ives to conclude the trip. The boat ride to Godrevy is certainly worth the visit if you're looking for a family day out this spring, however if you're more inclined to keep your feet on dry land then there's so much to do across the coast and within the town if you still want an experience of Cornwall's rich coast.

Staying local you can discover some of the many small inlets St Ives has where you can soak up the sun or simply relax with the waves repeating back and forth on the shores. Only moments from the Sail Lofts luxury accommodation in St Ives are the sands of Porthmeor Beach and neighbouring Porthgwidden. Perfect to sit back and relax on throughout a warm spring day. If you're more into shopping then St Ives has an eclectic mix of shops offering Cornish keepsakes to remind you of your time in St Ives from locally made Cornish fudge to handmade glassware at Jo Downs.

If of course you feel like branching out and exploring Cornwall there's so much to do; from the coastal climbs of Zennor to the tranquil relaxation of a day trip to Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens there's really nothing that you can't do. If you're heading toward Penzance then why not stop by nearby Marazion and take a trip across the cobblestone causeway to St Michael's Mount? A perfectly encapsulated village the mount resides in the centre of aptly named Mount's Bay and with a castle to explore alongside Victorian terraced gardens there really is no better way to enjoy the springtime weather.
