Short Breaks in St Ives

The picturesque seaside town of St. Ives, in Cornwall, is a wonderful place to spend the weekend. St. Ives and Porthmeor Beach are very popular over the summer months, but the town is also ideal for winter breaks thanks to its array of amazing art galleries, shops and restaurants. This area of West Cornwall is a haven for culture with must-visit places including Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden and the Tate St Ives right on your doorstep.

Here at Cottage Weekend, our team is on hand to help you find your ideal self-catering accommodation. We have thousands of wonderful holiday cottages to choose from, whether you’re after an apartment with a great sea view or a self-catering cottage with easy access to the South West Coast Path. We have a range of different properties to suit, including dog-friendly places, ideal for couples, small groups or large families, so there’s something for everyone.

The surrounding area is well worth exploring too. The seaside resort and village of Carbis Bay is less than a 20-minute walk away and other places to see, including Penzance, St Michael’s Mount and the iconic Land’s End. Whether you’re interested in beaches and surfing, long walks in the stunning countryside or browsing around an array of independent shops, Cornwall is a great place to visit.
