Swap tinsel towns and shopping centres for a stylish seaside holiday cottage decked out with everything you need for the festive season.

Whether you want to experience Christmas in a home away from home, or fancy a memorable New Year celebration with friends and family, St Ives is the perfect destination for a festive break in Cornwall. From Truro’s City of Lights parade to St Ives’ world-renowned street party, Cornwall is stacked with festivities throughout December.

Escape to a luxury holiday cottage by the sea in St Ives, and combine a much-needed winter break with festive shopping in craft fairs and boutiques, festive outings to some of Cornwall’s finest attractions, and festive parties to celebrate Christmas and New Year.

As well as lapping up the festive cheer a pebble’s throw from the sea, you can embrace the beauty of Cornwall in winter and make the most of the deserted beaches, invigorating coast path walks, stunning sub-tropical garden estates and award-winning restaurants where you can enjoy the finest local food served with a view to the crashing waves.

With mild winters, buckets full of landscape drama and a plethora of dog-friendly beaches, Cornwall is the perfect winter holiday destination. Bag a luxury holiday cottage in St Ives and you’ve got everything from award-winning restaurants to sublime scenery and rainy day attractions at your fingertips.
