About the Local Area
Dottie's Cottage and Arnie's Studio are located in the heart of St Ives. Whilst the street itself is quiet and tucked away it is just a short stroll from the shops, harbour, beaches and art galleries.
Spend time at the working harbour, where you can see the seals that visit. Take a fishing trip or a boat trip to seal Island or Godrevy lighthouse and maybe see some Dolphins along the way..... or maybe you prefer to sail. There is lots to do.
There is an array of restaurants to choose from but book up fast as they are ALL very popular. We'll leave details of a few of our favourites at the cottage for those of you who are new to town.
There are four golden beaches to choose from. Porthmeor beach is good for surfing and has life guards and a surf school through peak periods. The other beaches are more sheltered. Dog friendly beaches available year around, (please check for details as some are seasonal).
The art galleries draw many to St Ives. The Tate is probably the largest gallery in town and is found just 200m away from Dottie's Cottage and Arnie's Studio above Porthmeor beach. Artists are drawn to St Ives for its said 'special light'.
Walkers would be interested in the coastal paths offering spectacular scenery along the way. Northbound to Carbis bay is beautiful and suitable for most walkers. We have done this many times with our small children. South towards Zennor is beautiful but provides much more of a challenge!
There are many other attractions within easy reach of St Ives such as the Eden project and the Seal sanctuary.
What ever you choose to do during your stay you are sure to have a magical time in St Ives.
