Cornwall in September
St Ives September Festival

Charlotte Ballam

September in St Ives - synonymous with quieter beaches, less hustle and bustle and, if we're lucky, some bonus rays of sunshine. Despite its sleepy facade, September is alive and kicking in St Ives and has become a much sought after month to visit. And The Sail Lofts luxury cottages in St Ives provide the ultimate base from which to enjoy the festivities.

The September Festival - 14th - 28th September 2019

St Ives is home to the September Festival: an annual celebration of music, literature and the arts. Since its inception some 30 years ago, the event has gone from strength to strength, with revellers from all over the country choosing to save their Cornish break for the two weeks over which the festival spans.

Count on some unforgettable nights as the town’s liveliest venues play host to a myriad of Folk, Roots and Acoustic acts. Far from revolving solely around music; there will also be a plethora of free exhibitions, walks, workshops and street entertainment all over St Ives. Just minutes from your luxury cottage, Norway Square (opposite the School of Painting) will host 'Music & Poetry in the Square' daily at 12.30pm led by Bob Devereux.

Just minutes from the town centre, The Sail Lofts is well positioned for dipping in and out of the frivolities as and when you wish. If a quiet reprieve is in order your luxury cottage provides the perfect bolthole.
