Plan your relaxing break in May or June

Hélène Chaussavoine

With summer in sight, now is a good time to start planning a little getaway before the start of the long summer break. May and June are beautiful months to discover Cornwall and St Ives or if you prefer to relax and focus on doing the very minimum, our self-catering apartments will be your perfect base in St Ives.

The beach is a few steps away

With Porthmeor Beach across the road from Sail Lofts - St Ives, you are able to plan your next surf lessons or simply enjoy your first coffee of the day looking at the waves. Porthgwidden is a lovely beach with less swell and is ideal for a family day out. Bamaluz beach will quickly become your go-to beach as it is dog-friendly all year round. The Harbour beach, also dog-friendly, is spacious and great for an evening walk. Finally, Porthminster Beach is just a 15 mn walk from Sail Lofts and offers a lovely view to have with your breakfast at the cafe.

Restaurants and cafes

There is plenty of choice in town when it comes to book your next table to eat out. For breakfast we recommend trying the Porthmeor Cafe, lunch can be truly enjoyed at Porthminster Kitchen or Porthminster Cafe and for dinner, the choice is endless. The Hub will be a fantastic place for the whole family to enjoy good food whilst One Fish Street will offer a more romantic and sought-after experience. If you need help with your dinner reservation and would like some more recommendations please ask a member of the team.

Shopping delivery

If you would rather have slow days enjoying your time in the comfort of your own holiday apartment, order a shop online to have it delivered to Sail Lofts and we will make sure to put all your items away in the property before your arrival. After a long journey, there is nothing like having your favourite refreshing drink on arrival to celebrate the start of the holiday.

St Ives activities

May and June are renowned to have lovely weather with higher temperatures. Before the crowd arrives, make the most of the sunny days and discover areas of Cornwall you have never seen before or simply enjoy browsing the shops in St Ives offering local produce and Cornish gifts. Whilst staying at Sail Lofts, use our discount to rent an e-bike from St e-bikes or visit the Tate for free and learn about St Ives artists.

Dog-friendly holiday

Take your pooch on holiday in one of our dog-friendly apartments and make the most of your holiday with the whole family. With dog-friendly beaches only a few steps away and many restaurants and cafes allowing dogs inside, there is no other place than St Ives where going on holiday with a dog is this easy!
