I have been to St. Ives twice this summer. The first time the weather was beautiful. The second not so much but I fell in love with the place. I hadn't visited since I was a teenager and stayed at the castle. Found a lovely lady to stay with who makes the place feel like home from home. Seafood was amazing. think this has become the bolt hole now when we need to get away.


Lots of art and beautiful things but loved the beaches and paddle boarding everyday. I am not a surfer but seeing the kids on a Saturday morning flipped the heart. Just visit on a good day though. The weather's hard when hellish as it always is by the coast.
