Beautiful St Ives with its pristine beaches and quaint atmosphere is a dreamy place for holidays in Cornwall, and one that’s extremely popular with visitors from all over the country.

The town’s narrow streets most certainly add to its charm, however coupled with its status as one of Cornwall’s top seaside destinations they do pose a challenge for anyone visiting during busier times of the year. Of course, there are a host of *public parking options available including council and privately owned car parks however for ease and convenience nothing really beats a holiday home in St Ives with its own parking space.

Our collection of luxury self-catering properties with parking in St Ives can be found dotted all around its best areas. From the historic Downalong to just above Porthmeor Beach, you’ll find cosy cottages and contemporary houses all with their own parking, so if you’re looking for the best way to enjoy a holiday here, we think you’ll love these homes.

Thankfully, St Ives has plenty of alternatives available if your holiday cottage doesn’t come with its own parking. All prices are correct as of 2022 however it is best to check the council’s website
