Set over three floors, Good Day Sunshine is a lovely little hideaway. On the ground floor is an open plan living room with an electric log effect wood-burner, and a kitchen which has an AGA and small dining area. Upstairs on the first floor, there’s a gorgeous double bedroom with a king size bed and sea views, as well as a family bathroom with freestanding tub and shower over. Children have their own lovely space to enjoy in the bedroom at the top of the cottage under the eaves, and there are more sea views over St Ives Bay from its main window.

Famous for its picturesque harbour, iconic Tate St Ives art gallery, terrific restaurants and independent shopping, St Ives is a dream location for family getaways. A bustling atmosphere during the summer months and a laid-back vibe out of season make it the perfect place for a getaway at any time of the year.

Close to the cottage are the Trewyn Sub Tropical Gardens and The Barbara Hepworth studio and garden, both great for days out with the family, as well as the many wonderful beaches in the area including Porthmeor and Porthminster. If you’d like to surf while on holiday St Ives Surf School (based on Porthmeor) offers wetsuit and board hire as well as surf lessons. The nearby Porthminster Beach is a good all-rounder for the whole family and there’s also a wonderful beach café there where you’ll be able to enjoy a cold drink and watch the waves roll in.

Welcome to St Ives

There’s something special about holidays in St Ives and we just can’t quite put our fingers on it. It could be the beautiful light that’s attracted artists to the resort for generations, the cobbled streets and coastal views…or that feeling of being a world away from the hustle and bustle. Whatever it is, St Ives has a charm that’s unlike any other, and we’d recommend it at any time of year.

More about St Ives


Just beautiful.

I had a wonderful stay at this beautiful, relaxing home. It was in the perfect location and was so relaxing. The only thing I would say was that the skirting boards needed a dust and I found a stained wine glass in the cupboard. So, maybe a bit more of a thorough clean is needed at times. I also think they could do with a fully sized ironing board as the mini one they have is not good for ironing adult clothes. But, apart from those little minor details, I loved it.

Great stay

This house suited me perfectly, I was travelling alone and it was perfectly positioned for very easy walking access around St Ives, to the galleries and near the station as travelled by train.
