ART HOLIDAYS IN ST IVES, CORNWALL

Combine a creative journey with a beautiful escape….

 

St Ives harbour

For over a century, artists have been drawn to St Ives inspired by its spectacular, unspoilt coastline and the unique, translucent quality of the light it reflects. Warmed by the Gulf Stream, St Ives’ mild subtropical climate attracts visitors all year round and its historical charm and scenic setting combined with bustling restaurants and numerous art galleries make this an ideal choice for an art holiday.

Whether you choose a Hotel overlooking the sea, a Bed and Breakfast tucked within the old fisherman’s cottages and converted sail lofts, or a self-catering house just steps from the beach, there is a bountiful selection of places to stay, the majority within walking distance to the School.

Here are a few ideas for places to stay; please check out their websites as we have not been able to visit them all, so are unable to personally recommend them.

NO RISK POLICY:  Please reserve your place on a course and if you don’t find suitable accommodation within 48 hours we will  refund you in full.

Self catering can prove a cost effective option and off season short breaks are available. St Ives Holidays have over 200 properties locally and can advise on places to stay near the school.

The Tourist Information Centre in St Ives can help you find accommodation.

Guest Houses are also listed on these websites: Cream of Cornwall & St Ives- Cornwall

Many guest houses and hotels will advertise rooms via websites such as Trip Advisor and Late Rooms.
