Begin your search for a cottage in the verdant parish of Porthmeor whose greenery epitomises the area's title of an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' (AONB). Equally, the waterfront neighbourhood of Lelant is a charming medieval village with a range of cottages, which are nestled between the oldest golf club in the country, and the sublime Porthkidney Beach.
St Ives may have made a name for itself in the world of fine dining and high art; however, there is no more famous attraction than the raw beauty of Seal Island. This rocky island, which is only 3.5 miles west of the shore, is a haven for nature enthusiasts, who travel to the aptly-named island to visit the rare seal colony. To ensure you are ahead of the crowd, choose accommodation on The Wharf, where you will discover a host of boat tour agencies just beyond your front door.
With the trill of the local water-sport scene and collection of nationally-renowned galleries, it is unsurprising that St Ives is so popular with families.

Staying near the arty neighbourhood of Ayr is also popular with families who plan on visiting the renowned Tate Gallery, before getting creative in the Barnoon Workshop art space.
Take advantage of the renowned Cornish water-sport scene by reserving accommodation in one of the picturesque bay's which are dotted along the coast of St Ives.

Alternatively, you can choose an apartment with a view over St Ives Bay, which sweeps from the cobbled streets of the town centre to Godrevy lighthouse. This golden stretch is a favourite among surfers, who descend on Gwithian Beach and enjoy the waves all year round.
