Christmas in St Ives Cornwall

Christmas Lights - St Ives Cornwall


Only a few weeks now until Christmas - can't wait !

I thought I'd feature a few ideas to help you with food and gifts.

Its time to order you turkey (or duck, goose, rabbit .... whatever) and the place to do that is Harvey Brothers - the best family butcher in town. Their website features a selection of what they have on offer and you can buy online. If you don't see what you want simply give them a call and they can get it for you:
Harvey Brothers - Family Butchers


If you want to go out for Christmas Day lunch - The Western Hotel are now taking bookings. They're offering a seven course menu with starter, fish course, sorbet, main course, dessert, Cornish cheeses, coffee and mince pies. There will be a fully licenced bar with a selection of wines, real ales, spirits and soft drinks.


 If you're looking for a unique and original gift you could commission a unique piece of art.

Local artist Malcolm Bowmer can produce either a stylised Warhol style portrait or a unique caricature for you from a photo. This will then be printed and framed, or he can produce Christmas cards using the image:

Another local artist - Caroline Atkinson - can produce a personalised original painting for you with your names written in the sand of your favourite beach. This can also be used to produce Christmas cards if you wish. She also undertakes commisions and can work from a photograph:

St Ives textile artist Jo McIntosh produces a range of handmade bags, scarves and jewellery. Every piece is unique and she can produce a piece exactly as you want. She also runs textile workshops and offers one to one tuition. You can buy a gift voucher for your loved one that they can use for any workshop that they choose:

 I hope that you found this helpful - any other suggestions are welcome.
