Get away from the crowds and escape to St Ives for the perfect, chilled Winter Break. Walk along deserted beaches and take advantage of not having to book weeks in advance for the best eateries.
St Ives in December
There’s a great programme of events throughout December in St Ives. Santa arrives in St Ives by lifeboat, there are shop window display competitions, treasure hunts around town, lots of winter shopping offers, carol concerts and farmers markets. It’s the perfect time to come for a winter break as you can get all your Christmas shopping done in a picturesque environment, stopping lots for coffees and cream teas. Keep up to date with events for this year on the St Ives in December website or on Facebook.
Cornwall is at its most dramatic and beautiful in the winter when the beaches are deserted and there is just a smattering of people on the cobbled streets. From Little Leaf Guest House you are within walking distance of seven amazing beaches which, in the winter, are free from stripey wind protectors and hoards of holidaymakers. Wrapping up and walking down an empty beach is one of life’s great pleasures and a winter break gives you that opportunity to get some peace and quiet before or during the holiday madness.
A winter break at Little Leaf
At Little Leaf we have central heating in all the rooms along with a lovely selection of Clipper teas and coffees; there’s fresh milk available, homemade cookies and a wide variety of DVDs to borrow during your stay – all the ingredients for a cosy afternoon in should the wind pick up and you would rather be indoors. Sit in the armchairs in Room 2, cosy up in Room 4 or come down into the lounge, grab an ale or glass of wine from the honesty bar and sit in the window to enjoy the view over the ocean and St Ives harbour.
