Foodie Holidays

If you share our passion for good food and its provenance, you’ll love staying in one of our stylish holiday cottages in St Ives. From your luxury home from home you can experience some of the best foodie hotspots in Cornwall, from Michelin-starred restaurants on the doorstep to the county’s world-renowned restaurants including Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen and Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant. Arrive to a Cornish cream tea and a glass of locally pressed apple juice, and enjoy a taste of Cornwall on a foodie holiday in St Ives.

Our luxury self-catering cottages make the perfect base for a foodie holiday in Cornwall. In one of the UK’s hottest gastronomic destinations you can access foodie gems from the tip to the toe of Cornwall, from Ben Tunnicliffe’s new venture nudging Sennen Cove to Nathan Outlaw’s fish restaurant overlooking Port Isaac harbour.

With its plethora of much-lauded restaurants serving food from the region’s farmers, fishermen and foragers, it’s little wonder that St Ives is hot on the heels of Padstow as one of the county’s top foodie destinations. Flick open the latest Michelin Guide and you’ll be signposted to the town’s Alba, Porthminster Beach Café and Porthmeor Café Bar, as well as Bib Gourmand entries Black Rock and the Halsetown Inn.

You don’t even have to venture out of your self-catering cottage to enjoy fine food: not only have we decked out all of our kitchens ready to create a culinary storm, we can organise the finest fresh local produce to be delivered to your door, or line-up private chefs to take the helm so you can relax and pop open the Champagne.

If you’re looking for a hands-on local foodie experience, try a foraging walk with Caroline Davey and learn to whip nature’s bounty into delectable dishes, or catch your own dinner on a mackerel fishing trip. For cookery lessons under the wing of Cornwall’s most eminent chefs head to Stein’s Cookery School in Padstow, or learn the art of baking, fish preparation and chutney making at the Loft cookery club in St Ives.

Come face to face with foodie wizards and culinary experts at the county’s line-up of food festivals, from the St Ives Food and Drink Festival, to the Great Cornish Food Festival. Whatever tickles your taste buds, enjoy a foodie break with Carbis Bay Holidays and tuck into the taste of Cornwall.
