St ives In recent years St Ives has become one of Europe's premier holiday destinations, famed not only for its beautiful beaches and coastal paths but also for the maze of narrow, cobbled streets packed with restaurants, galleries, cafés and local bars. There are five sandy beaches, including neighbouring Carbis Bay, three of which are award-winning, blue flag beaches; the coastal paths provide a treat for walkers and bird-watchers alike. The town is also renowned for its artist community; many artists live in and visit St Ives because the light is said to be special and, let's face it, it's a very beautiful place. There are galleries, art shops and artistic inspiration all over the town including the Tate, and the Barbara Hepworth museum and sculpture garden. With a maze of cobbled streets which offer a wide variety of shops and quality restaurants and café bars and all lead down onto the picturesque harbourside.
St Ives is just 10 minutes from the A30 that links into all the major market towns and Cathedral city of Truro. The St Ives Bay Railway Line links into St Erth meeting the main line and connects to other Cornish towns and to Plymouth, Reading and London Paddington and to cross-country services to Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow.
Newquay Airport is less than an hour away with routes to UK and Irish airports as well as European destinations.
