Fancy getting out and about on foot from Cohort Hostel? We highly recommend walking over to Carbis Bay Beach – the next beach along from Porthminster. It’s a lovely, short walk and gives you some gorgeous views for a very small amount of effort.

We love… Barnoon Workshop, a dedicated space for Arts & Crafts activities in St Ives. Perfect for individuals, schools or groups; their classes range from drop-in through to more in-depth courses. Barnoon Workshop opened around the same time as Cohort Hostel so we feel a particular affinity to them.
We got together recently and had a chat with founders Pete Giles and Zoe Eaton to find out what they love about St Ives and why they opened Barnoon Workshop.
