Fuel your adventures with a hearty breakfast. Whether you opt for overnight oats or the full works, getting out of bed will feel a little easier with a freshly-prepared breakfast to start your day. Included in your room rate, simply roll out of bed and we'll do the rest.





There's no place quite like St Ives. The buzz of the town offers plenty to see and do, while a collection of tranquil beaches lie a mere stone’s throw away. When you’re not riding the waves off Porthmeor, the town itself is a treasure trove of art galleries, quirky shops, and fine restaurants.
