The week before Easter we headed down south for a wedding in Plymouth. We thought since we were going all that way, we'd make the most out of it and drive to St Ives the day after. We booked an apartment with Aspects Holidays who have a wide range of properties all over Cornwall.
The apartment was perfect for the two of us (38 Carrack Widden if you're interested!) and was only a ten minute walk to the harbour and main stretch of restaurants. It did imvolve a steep uphill walk everytime we came back though, which I was cursing by the end of the week!
We had a gorgeous view of Portminster beach from the living room window but our go to beach while there was Porthmeor beach. The beach cafe there was amazing and even the takeaway options were great too.
Me being me, I'd obviously researched places to eat before we'd even finished paying for the holiday! Our favourites from the week were Beer & Bird, Harbour Fish & Chips, The Loft Restaurant & Terrace and Peppers Pasta & Pizzeria.
We had an amazing week and some beautiful weather to go with it. Neither of us had been to St Ives before but we fell in love with it. We'll definitely be using Aspects Holidays again next year for another visit.
Have you visited St Ives before?
