After Watergate bay yesterday, we drove into St Ives
, checked into our gorgeous B&B
and went exploring for the night! The next morning, we headed for a chill on the gorgeous Porthminster beach (below); the bay to the right of St Ives harbour & a short coastal walk away from Carbis Bay…
See the small white building on the right? That’s the very special Porthminster Restaurant
– We visited last year for a big family meal, watched the sunset from our table and enjoyed the absolute highlight of a deconstructed pimms dessert! Go here for your special treat!
Crabbin’ & Climbin’
The afternoon was spent doing this really…
(The view from my pint glass, looking out on to St Ives Harbour at low tide)
The Sloop Inn
is where the all-dayers at! 2 metres from the beach, the views from the outdoor area are insane – so easy to while away a whole afternoon in here, moving over to The Balcony Bar
when the sun sets for £12 pitchers and live music!
Sinking the dangerously good Old Rosie with my love!
The Sloop Inn also has a fully functioning B&B
, with rooms from £50pp a night (doubles), not bad for that view! They also have a hidden sun terrace called the Upper Deck
– rooftop sesh!
We headed back to the room, watched the last of the surfers from our bed and slowly got ready for our sunset trip.
We caught a ride down to Sennen Cove and watched this happen…
You could take a picnic, but we had bigger ideas, so after the spectacular peachy burn died down into darkness, we headed back to St Ives..
Locally sourced grilled meat, local lager
and eco friendly everything
Chicken, Bacon & Avo with garlic aioli
Much like the wholesome, boutique burger bars in London, you squeeze on a bench and make friends with your neighbours. No table for 2 here, but you are guaranteed awesome food and a laid back atmosphere.
For dessert…a cider crawl around the harbour, of course!
