So as the summer begins to draw to a close, it’s time to think about your autumn and winter breaks, and St Ives certainly offers a wide-range of opportunities for your break away. From long weekends, mid-week breaks and even full weeks, September through to spring still offers a fantastic experience for visitors of all ages.
September often remains very warm with days on the beach and surfing without the big summer crowds. Restaurants offer new fayre and shops refill with new season’s stock. What I love most about St Ives out of the main holiday season are the fabulous coastal walks, and great lunches in town. I find lots of fabulous places to stay in St Ives throughout the year mainly through Aspects Holidays or St Ives Holidays.
The September Festival guarantees a fabulous atmosphere throughout the last two weeks of the month with a range of gigs, events, and open events at galleries and studios.
As we head into the late autumn and winter months there are lots of cosy cottages to keep us warm at night. I love to wrap up and enjoy all that town has to offer, although its fair to say St Ives mild temperature continues right through to late autumn most years.
As we move into October, the summer-time dog ban lifts and the beaches once again become a place for our four-legged friends to enjoy with their owners.
