Helping to find property in St Ives, Cornwall

Outside of London there is perhaps more artistically happening in Cornwall than any other county in England. As pretty as a picture, it’s not surprising that the town attracted nineteenth century sea and landscape artists who put St Ives on the map for future generations of artists and sculptors.

St Ives’ charm lies in its pretty harbour and delightful shopping streets which meander uphill with plenty of fascinating window displays on the way to temp you inside.

St Ives has its own train station which runs to and from St Erth. Huntington train station, which is just a ten-minute drive away from the town of St Ives offers trains to London Kings Cross, which takes just over an hour. Alternatively, you can easily reach Cambridge via the A14, or Peterborough via the A1.
