Little Leaf Guest House does not have private parking and St Ives’ car parks can become busy during the summer season. However there is a large public car park (Park Avenue) just 3 doors down and the car park charges can be viewed by clicking here (this will open the Cornwall Council website). Unfortunately we cannot guarantee any spaces in this car park however it is usually less busy earlier and later in the day.
An alternative is the Leisure Centre Car Park (Trenwith) which is behind Park Avenue and has 1000 car parking spaces. Charges are exactly the same as the Park Avenue car park and can be viewed on the above link. If you park at Trenwith there is a pathway to Park Avenue next to the public toilets, it will be signposted ‘Town Centre’. Follow it to Park Avenue and it will come out at the Park Avenue Car Park, turn right and carry on down Park Avenue.
Please note that the car parks only take change. You cannot pay by notes and can only pay by card over the phone using an automoated ‘voice recognition’ system. Alternatively, as car park charging is operated by RingGo, you can pay in advance or download their Smart Phone app in order to pay quickly when you arrive. The Park Avenue car park location number is 8404.
If you do find it difficult to find a space we tend to find that if you are patient at the car parks then you will probably find that one comes free after 10 – 15 minutes.
St Ives Car Parks is another option, it’s nearby and good for if you want guaranteed parking.
