We love our planet and being so close to the ocean we are reminded daily of the effect of our business and our lives on this relatively fragile ecosystem; but why do we need to save water? Reduce our energy consumption and go plastic free?

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.

The sun is OUT. The longest day of the year is still in front of us and we all know that Summer is coming.
This is one of THE best times to be in St Ives and there’s a reason these next few months are the busiest of the year. When faced with a day in St Ives however there’s still the big question… WHAT SHALL I DO?

It’s that time of year again – Festival Time in St Ives. As you might know Cornwall has a history of festival shenanigans – we love a good knees up; it’s an excuse to take time off work, hit the beach or harbour and celebrate all things Cornish. Coming up this weekend we have the St Ives Food & Drink Festival followed by the St Ives Literary Festival. Read all about it…

And so it begins… 2017, another year, another new year’s resolution. Personally I’ve stopped making them, mainly due to a total lack of interest in watching myself fail. Others may not make them for the sheer fact that they’re already doing it… like daily!
Take the Highgate Harriers for example…

We live in the UK, we know that sometimes – when you’re least expecting it – it rains. It can change plans but don’t let it put you off enjoying your time in St Ives. There’s loads to do from enjoying a leisurely coffee, without the pressure to do a challenging coastal walk, through to a spa day and a visit to the St Ives museum. Our list will keep you busy for at least 2 days of inclement weather.

In April of this year Cohort Hostel was taken over for two days by a wedding party. They decorated it beautifully, organised fantastic activities and food for the whole party, spending their very special 2 days with their closest friends and family. We were delighted to be a part of their celebrations.

Having never really been to Cornwall before we were struck by golden sand, sparkly green/blue ocean and the fact you could eat a Cornish pasty, triple cooked chips, salt & pepper squid, salted caramel ice cream and a cream tea without ever leaving your deckchair.

Ben Warner: a local surfer, instructor and coasteering guide at St Ives Surf School has written a post for us about why he is so lucky to live in St Ives. It’s not just tourists that appreciate this beautiful town and its surrounds; from a surfer’s perspective it’s the perfect place to be – phenomenal surf in St Ives and within a 30 minute drive.
