This Holiday is Great For
St Ives Bay Hotel
Set on a cliff above St Ives’ winding alleys, quaint cottages and boutique shops and overlooking Porthminster Beach, which has won many prestigious awards, the St Ives Bay Hotel is a great place to enjoy this wonderful North Cornwall town.
In less than 10 minutes you can stroll down to the seafront for a walk around the town’s harbour with a number of fantastic restaurants and bars surrounding the area. A little further on you can visit the Tate St Ives or pick up the South West Coast Path about 15 minutes from the hotel which will take you out of town to the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty where you can see some stunning sunsets over the sea.
The seaside towns of Penzance, Newquay and Falmouth and historic Truro are all within an hour’s drive of St Ives and are great places to take a day trip to discover the culture of Cornwall. The town is also perfectly placed to enjoy lovely countryside and dramatic coastlines, Britain’s most southerly point, Lizard Point and Land’s End are both easily reachable by car.
The hotel is just across the road and up some steps from the train station meaning arriving by train couldn’t be easier. In the hotel there is plenty of space to sit back and enjoy a refreshing drink in our courtyard terrace after a busy day of exploring everything that Cornwall has to offer.
Full Day: Land's End and Trengwainton Gardens
Take in the spectacular scenery on our excursion via Land’s End to beautiful Trengwainton Gardens where we include a tour of the Noah’s Ark Kitchen Gardens.

Full Day: Lost Gardens of Heligan
We make our way to the Lost Gardens of Heligan, first established in Mevagissey by the Tremayne family in the mid-18th century. They surround the Heligan estate, on which is the beautiful Jacobean Heligan House.
The public gardens around the house are filled with wonderful scenery, as the plants here have been perfectly preserved and tended to. There are a number of gardens to wander through, including the Italian Garden, the Jungle, the Vegetable Garden and the Waller Garden. We’ll see gigantic rhododendrons, aged camellias, and Europe’s last pineapple pit.
Full Day: Scilly Isles and Tresco
After an early breakfast we sail across to St Mary's, before taking a shuttle boat to glorious Tresco Abbey Garden, where our local guide accompanies us on a tour of the gardens to discover the exotic fauna and flora.
