If you love Cornwall, you’re really going to enjoy this Cornish midweek break. Explore the enchanting beauty of West Cornwall while making the dazzling jewel in Cornwall’s crown, St. Ives, as your cosy coastal base. This captivating journey will lead you through dramatic coastal landscapes, historic towns, and artistic treasures.

With its stunning golden beaches, charming streets, and vibrant arts scene, St. Ives offers a delightful blend of natural beauty and cultural richness that makes it a sought-after destination on the Cornish coast. Discover the picturesque fishing harbour, enjoy an authentic Cornish pasty or some local seafood, or simply appreciate its unique light and setting, a mecca for artists for centuries.

You’ll stay in the simple but friendly St Ives Bay Hotel, set in an ideal location, across from the award-winning Porthminster Beach’s golden sands and turquoise waters. Spend all of your time just soaking up the atmosphere and doing your own thing in St Ives, or you can head out on our included excursions. For great sightseeing, we include a scenic drive along the fabulous Cornish coast taking in Penzance, Merazion and the most southerly point on the British mainland, the Lizard Peninsula. You can also visit the charming coastal town of Perranporth and have a different taste of Cornwall at Healeys Cyder Farm, exploring the art of cider-making in a tranquil rural setting.
