If you are heading to Cornwall for your holiday you are sure to visit the wonderful town of St. Ives, located north of Penzance and just west of Camborne, the resort is one of the most popular in the region.  Not only has St. Ives got plenty to see and do, but it is also in a great location to be able to visit many of the other attractions based around Cornwall.

One of the largest visitor attractions in the UK is the Eden Project, located just outside of the town of St. Austell; the project, amongst other things, incorporates the world’s largest greenhouse.  Throughout the year a great many people head to the attraction as it holds a variety of attractions for both young and old to enjoy. Throughout the summer, several one day concerts take place, so you may be fortunate enough to catch your favourite artists or bands whilst enjoying staying in Cornwall cottages

Just a short distance from St Ives cottages  is the wonderful St. Michaels mount; the island is located near Marazion and holds a wonderful castle that can be explored. There are plenty of other great attractions to see and do, such as sub-tropical gardens and wonderful restaurants and cafes.
