Very Good
A bit touristy for me but we enjoy the odd night here before setting out on our walks. Think the restaurants are over priced although can't fault the Pizza Express staff (their ford is consistently good too)

It was an upmarket seaside resort. Beautiful & picturesque with a fabulous sandy beach. Lots of character & lots of things to do. Lovely bars,restaurants & shops. And within easy reach of many other lovely & interesting places to visit. St Michaels mount being a favourite.

Great village with a lot of nice boutiques and good restaurants. Lots of local buses will take you to/from almost any spot you want to hike and enjoy the magic scenery.

St Ives is charming! Better to leave the car at your hotel and walk because of narrow, hilly roads. Toughest city driving in Britain!

Recommended in St. Ives

There is great music at the Kettle & Wink pub on Wednesdays & Fridays, when you'll hear some of the country's best folk music - all created by local musicians

Easy access to the South West Coast Walk, either directly from St Ives or driving to other sections. Beautiful coves and good beach cafes within the town.

The sea food cafe. Fresh fish of many varieties that you chose from a wet fish display.

Are you watching Poldark? THAT scenery I am talking about!

The Rum and Crab Shack. Super food in a lovely setting.
