St Ives In Winter
Fore Street - St Ives Cornwall - Sunday 17th January 2010
Its been another sunny day in St Ives today - a reminder of how nice it can be here in Winter. Before we moved here we always used to come down in February. Prices for accommodation are a lot cheaper and there are no crowds to fight through.
So if you're not lucky enough to be here already - worth thinking about. All of the pubs and most of the restaurants, shops and galleries are open as usual.
A few examples of good deals on accommodation.
Sail Lofts - luxury five star apartments - have some good offers. You can currenly book an apartment sleeping six for seven nights at £425. Short breaks are also available.

Lyonesse Seven - luxury apartment sleeping six - are offering 20% off normal prices throughout January and February.

Cornish Gems have a variety of late offers for luxury cottages and apartments in both St Ives and the surrounding area, including some dog-friendly places:

If you're looking for a hotel many in town are also offering special winter rates. These include Tregenna Castle which is offering special rates on rooms plus discounts on meals, spa treatments and golf:

Many of the pubs and restaurants have special meal deals at the moment. They're often not listed on their websites, so best to have a walk around town when you're here and keep a look out.
There are also lots of things going on even in winter- see my:

So - well worth getting down here before the crowds return at Easter.
