Visiting the popular holiday destination of St Ives in Cornwall

Cornwall is by far the most popular choice for a beach loving holidaymaker as the climate there is usually a few degrees higher than elsewhere in the UK and the amount of sun hours are usually more too. One of the favourite places to visit in Cornwall is a resort on the north coast called St Ives. Originally known as a fishing village, the town has grown over the years and is now renown for being the home to a talented artist community. The many galleries and high-end shops make it a haven for the discerning holidaymaker.

During the summer months St Ives gets incredibly busy as families flock to the beautiful sandy beaches and filled the quaint cobbled streets however if you can take your holiday out of the main season you will find it a more pleasurable experience and have a wider choice of accommodation and dining options. It is said that St Ives has its own climate, and this appears to be true as often the weather in spring and autumn can be equally as pleasant as in the summer.

It is advisable to book accommodation on the harbour or overlooking one of the beaches if possible so that your car can be parked on one of the car parks of designated parking areas and remain unused during your stay.
