I'm also looking to stay in St Ives for a week with our baby who will then be 9 months. Scorpio1, as you live near St. Ives can you suggest the name of a self-catering holiday home or cottage and is there any particular area in St Ives that is really nice??

We love St Ives and have been about 6 times now, since our two were little.

We book through St Ives Holidays, (Lanhams). If you can get into Piazza apartments, they are fantastic, right on the beach, the view is amazing, so when little ones still need their bedtime and you are stuck in the evening, you have the best view in all of St Ives.

So many eaterie places are nearby, dh used to nip out and bring back something different most evenings.

We hardly use our car in St Ives, when the weather is great you don't need to go anywhere.

I love it!!!

Oscar22, see if any of the barnaloft ones are available, they are next door, same beach and private access doorway onto the beach.

We're staying at a Barnaloft during Easter Hols.

i can see that one apartment is available to rent but unfortunately it says no children under the age of 3. Its so hard to know where to stay especially as I've never been to St Ives before.
Thanks again.

Well, if you see somewhere give me a shout, I can advise!!

St Ives is small, you can walk everywhere, beaches, harbour, shops, restaurants, it is all so close together. You can't really go wrong.

Try St Nicholas Court that is next to Barnaloft.

It goes, Piazza, Barnaloft facing the beach/sea and then St Nicholas Court is on the edge as it curves round. So some of them have great sea views, and the easy access onto the beach.

I've looked on September and there seems to be some September availability. Check you have a nice view.

Not all places in St Ives have car park spaces, that is a rare thing. But there is a big car park just near the beach, that you buy a weekly pass for (need lots of £1 coins). We tend to do that, and it has always been absolutely fine. Especially in September, it will much quieter after August madness.

Which week do you fancy, I will see which other ones are available and work out if they are in a good location.

thats great - I'll have a look at St Nicholas Court and let you know.
Thanks again.
