Festive Breaks in St Ives

1st – 19th December.

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

Whether you want to experience the run up to 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.

The culmination of the festive season sees the streets of St Ives come alive during a vibrant fancy dress carnival for New Year’s Eve, with live music, plenty of revelry and a magnificent fireworks display that lights up the ocean.  Whether you fancy a full-throttle party or a mellow winter break, St Ives is the perfect destination for a fabulous festive holiday.

With mild winters, buckets full of landscape drama and a plethora of dog-friendly beaches, Cornwall is the perfect winter holiday destination.
