The Best Places to Stay in the UK

St Ives

A former artists’ colony and fishing village, St Ives is nowadays a chic holiday destination synonymous with all the things Cornwall is famous for – pearly beaches, pumping surf, beachfront dining and a thriving arts scene. You can bag a boutique room with sea views, tuck into Michelin-starred cuisine, visit the Tate or don a wetsuit and ride the waves. Or just flop on one of its marvellous sandy bays. Plus, as one of the UK’s favourite family destinations, it hasn’t entirely shrugged off its trad British seaside feel, so you can still fight the seagulls for your fish and chips and squander holiday change on the amusements.
