Christmas Shopping in St Ives

The perfect place to fill your stockings

Treat yourself to a luxury pre-Christmas break at our self-catering accommodation and finish your Christmas shopping in style.

Without being stuffed with the usual high street chains St Ives is full of independent boutiques and local businesses. It’s a great place to buy unique gifts and quirky stocking fillers, you really can find pieces that are truly one of a kind! From handmade jewellery and homeware to Cornish clothing and local art, there’s something for everyone. Don’t forget that with your exclusive card you can also benefit from a 10% discount at a number of shops in St Ives.

If you fancy venturing slightly further afield there’s plenty of festive cheer to experience elsewhere in Cornwall. There is so much to see and do you’ll be spoilt for choice. The Montol Festival is held annually in Penzance during the Christmas period. The festival is a celebration of the revival and reinterpretation of many of the traditional Cornish winter solstice and Christmas traditions going back as far as the middle ages. With guise dancing, lanterns, parades and stalls there is plenty of fun for all the family.

Truro, the capital city of Cornwall, has an excellent selection of high street and independent boutiques. With a late night shopping event every Wednesday in the lead up to Christmas you can soak in the festive fun. Walk around the market stalls sampling mulled cider and hog roast whilst listening to the carol singers, brass bands and other entertainers. Most years the city also hosts an outdoor ice rink outside the Cathedral.

To experience community spirit at its best why not pay a visit Angarrack and its stunning Christmas lights display. The lights are funded entirely by a local committee who dedicate their time to raising money to make the light display more spectacular every year. The village is themed around the twelve days of Christmas with residents getting involved by putting up their own displays.

After a hard days shopping, why not indulge in a relaxing spa treatment at the Sail Loft’s Ocean Studio Spa? Perhaps a de-stressing Sole Delight pedicure to pamper those feet or a Deep Tissue Muscle massage to alleviate stress and ease your aching muscles. If you prefer, we can even arrange for our therapists to visit you in your apartment.

For further information on any of the above please don’t hesitate to call.
