Holidays in St IvesAccommodationLocal AreaTop TipsTestimonialsSt Ives Gallery

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.

One of the best ways of searching availability for B&B and self catering is via the St Ives Tourism Association website

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

Guest Houses are also listed on the large booking engines: Air B&B &

Please see a below a small selection and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need some help finding accommodation.
