About St Ives

‘The Jewel in the South West’ just one of the accolades heaped upon St Ives and the surrounding area.

Probably from a lifestyle point of view one of the best places to live in the UK, its temperate climate, stunning golden sandy beaches, turquoise coloured sea, the whole ambience of the area from the rugged Cornish coastline through to the haunting disused mine stacks, you would be hard pressed to find a more beautiful and awe inspiring area.

Life is centred around the famous harbour, where working fishing boats still bring in fresh fish bound for the superb local restaurants that adorn the town.

Living in the area is wonderful. If you have a family the local schools have an excellent reputation, there is plenty for the children to do from the Surf Life Saving Club, Rugby and Football, Tennis, and with the indoor swimming pool and leisure facilities fitness is on the doorstep.

Far from being a sleepy seaside resort, St Ives has a cosmopolitan feel, many independent shops sell high quality local goods, the local butchers and grocers are still used and sell local produce, the restaurants have an excellent reputation to maintain, serving excellent and reasonable priced food for the quality

Road, rail and air links are good and becoming even better, with London being only 5 ½ hours away by Train, and 40 mins by air from Newquay.

To visit St Ives is superb, to live here is un-missable.
