May Half Term Holidays

Make the most of the Whitsun bank holiday and book a May half-term break in St Ives. With summer fast approaching Cornwall typically enjoys balmy spring weather, which makes it the perfect time to bag a luxury holiday cottage within a pebble’s throw of St Ives’ stunning beaches. Don a wetsuit and hit the waves, or don your walking boots to explore the coast path and countryside where wildflowers bloom in the sub-tropical climate. Whether you spend your days in the fresh sea air or nosing around the shops and galleries, shake the sand from your toes and hunker down in the luxury of your private home away from home.

Enjoy a May half-term holiday in St Ives and make the most of the local attractions, award-winning blue flag beaches and world-class restaurants, within easy reach of your luxury holiday home.

With milder temperatures than the rest of the UK, Cornwall is the perfect destination for a Whitsun family break. Enjoy beach picnics, go rock-pooling, eat lip-smacking ice cream and pasties by the sea, or even take the plunge for a surf or a swim on one of the St Ives’ golden beaches. A stone’s throw from the coastal gems you can let off steam in the wild open spaces of Cornwall’s sub-tropical gardens as they come alive with blossom and carpets of bluebells.

Even if the early summer sun doesn’t shine on your spring half-term holiday, your stylish holiday home is in a great location for exploring some of Cornwall’s finest all-weather attractions: Browse world-class art in the Tate St Ives, come face-to-face with wildlife at Paradise Park or visit the rainforest in the biomes of the Eden Project.

Back at your luxury holiday cottage you can relax come rain or shine. Kickback with a view to the striking spring sunsets, whip up a feast of seasonal Cornish fare, and keep the family entertained with all the mod cons and gadgets you need for all ages from tots and teens to grandparents.

The minimum stay for a May bank holiday break is 7 nights, unless booked at late notice. Our portfolio of luxury holiday cottages includes family-friendly, baby-friendly and dog-friendly holiday cottages in St Ives and Carbis Bay.
