Enjoy quality time with your nearest and dearest on a family friendly holiday in St Ives. Hit the waves on lifeguarded beaches, follow activity trails around world-class art galleries, dine in Michelin-starred hotspots or tuck into ice cream with your toes in the sand. Not only are most of our family-friendly cottages stacked with everything you need for a holiday with kids in tow, but we also go that extra mile to ensure children will love staying in our seaside holiday homes. Arrive to buckets and spades, boogie boards and chocolate buttons; and after a day at the beach chill out with Sky TV, Netflix, iPads and wifi.

Footsteps from the sand, the picturesque fishing village is abuzz with culture and attractions – from hands-on art experiences to music and theatre. Not to mention that you’re within a pebble’s throw of stunning walking territory teeming with wildlife and pre-historic treasures.
