Walkers are welcome logoCountry House Breaks offer a flexible way to enjoy some of Britain's most scenic areas. Ideal for self-guided walking, cycling or sightseeing.

St Ives is a charming resort town with its maze-like old fishing quarter, and is an ideal base from which to explore the local area. This combination of beautiful scenery and a pleasant climate makes it one of the most popular locations for an active holiday for all ages.

Highlights of your stay could include

  • Self-guided walks along the Cornish Coast Path - gentle strolls to more challenging walks
  • St Ives town, now a mecca for artists, with the Barbara Hepworth museum and the town’s Tate Gallery, housing a collection of international modern and contemporary art
  • Cornwall’s beaches - lots of surf schools to supply the lessons, equipment, and hours of fun
  • The Eden Project, home to the world's largest greenhouse with gigantic conservatories - one a majestic rainforest, the other with the fruits and flowers of the Mediterranean, South Africa and California
  • St Michael's Mount - a fairytale island with an exotic garden, ancient harbour, a church and a medieval castle
  • Isles of Scilly - a day trip with a difference with crystal clear sea, golden beaches and the famous Tresco gardens
