Skidden House at the bottom of Skidden Hill is the oldest working hotel in the town as well as the first hostelry where Guinness was sold in the UK in circa 1760. St Ives and St Columb Major near Newquay are the only two locations left in Cornwall where 'Hurling the Silver Ball' takes place, once one of Cornwall’s most ancient and intriguing customs. St Ives and Carbis Bay have recently been presented with a Silver Gilt as part of the Britain in Bloom campaign, they also boast some amazing north coast beaches.
But the main draw of the town has always been the stunning golden sands and azure blue waters, with glorious views stretching from Godrevy and Gwithian all the way to Hayle.

Porthmeor St Ives self catering
This is our second stay at Porthmeor, the property is modern large and very clean. The only thing against this property, it is at the top of St Ives, it is walkable and up a lot of steps if you have mobility problems your forced to take a taxi, this costs less than AGBP5. But overall I would definitely recommend this property and will be returning in the future.
