A Week In St. Ives, Cornwall


My good lady and I just spent a week in the village of St Ives in Cornwall and were blessed with stunning weather, sandy beaches, great food and lots of great little shops and art galleries to explore. We came back with slight suntans, a lovely oil painting, memories of many delicious meals including one at Jamie Oliver’s 15 restaurant (which really was amazing), but above all we returned relaxed and refreshed, not wanting to leave. Which I guess is the point of a holiday! Not surprisingly I took a few photos to document the visit…

  1. Out of interest, were you able to get straight in at Fifteen, or did you book? I always assumed it was booked months in advance.


    • We booked on their website but only a week or two in advance – there are usually slots so you can get in at relatively short notice. Bear in mind if you go for dinner that the tasting menu isn’t exactly cheap. But I will say this, it’s right up there with Gordon Ramsay’s Maze that we went to, a couple of dishes were even nicer!


  2. Hello John,

    I am a young cornish teenager who has only bumped into your website because of your background switcher, I am amazed that you have come to St.Ives, a place in which I visit nearly every two weeks and I am pleased that what you think of cornwall is not exactly the wrong point of view. In other words, at least the rain did not spoil your holiday! Your photos are stunning
