Winter days out in the wet weather

Conor Fletcher

There is so much to enjoy about a winter in St Ives, even when the sun isn’t shining; rainy days really do have their merits, and a wet weather adventure is right out the door from your luxury apartment in St Ives. There’s no need to wait for it to clear as the wonders of Cornwall’s countryside are stunning and dramatic regardless of the weather.

At the Sail Lofts luxury apartments in St Ives you have the reassurance that you never need to worry about parking in St Ives, with a space reserved for each apartment any worries can be left at home as you know that however busy the roads (and parking spaces) you will always have that space waiting for you when you get here. This isn’t something to baulk at, spaces in the town are often limited regardless of the time of year and our car park is conveniently located on Beach Road which means nipping in and out of the town to traverse the Cornish coast is easy.

Driving around the Cornish countryside offers options out in the elements and as long as you’re in good supply of Wellington boots there’s little reason to take heed of the weather. Though if you’re looking for an indoor excursion the Eden Project, less than an hours drive from your luxury apartment in St Ives, offers an experience of all climates whatever the weather may be doing, so why not explore their Rainforest and Mediterranean Biomes which will surely keep all the family engaged.

If you’re feeling a little more brave, raincoat in tow then days out in the wet and windy weather offer some of the more inspiring adventures in Cornwall. The blustery breezes and refreshing rain showers don’t have to leave you taking refuge in the warmth of your luxury apartment in St Ives, but who would blame you? Journeys along the less inclined coastland gives way to the breath-taking, awe-inspiring scenes of the ocean breaking on the shoreline with rapturous uproars of salted sea foam filling the air with the turn of the tide.

Of course when it’s as wet as can be there’s still the option of staying in St Ives, only trekking a few feet from your luxury apartment in St Ives to the town centre and watching it all pass you by from the peacefulness of a quaint Cornish café. Watching the rainfall rattle across the sea’s surface while sitting over a warm refreshing beverage and perhaps even tucking into a delicious lunch is a great way to spend a wintery afternoon.

It’s so often clear skies and sunny days in St Ives, but don’t feel stifled by the seasons, wet weather days out offer some of the most memorable experiences the town can offer.
