These are just a few places we think you should find time to see when staying in St Ives. Most cottages in St Ives are in the Downalong area, which is the lower part of the town closest to the sea and all these places we suggest. Walking around St Ives is most often on the flat and there is always a bench along the way to rest and simply take in the views. At The Malakoff and St Nicholas’ Chapel, we recommend taking a coffee and lunch as the views are spectacular.

Climate in CornwallBeing in the far southwest of Cornwall, St Ives has a very special climate. When the rest of the UK is having harsh minus-temperature frosts, St Ives is usually 14 degrees! That much is seen with the rich variety of exotic plants that grow and thrive along our coast and inland. The light in St Ives draws artists and those that need a very important pick-me-up. There is a magical glow to our days here where you leave after your holiday feeling regenerated and relaxed.
