Winter short breaks in St Ives and Carbis Bay

The end of summer getting you down? Still have a few days of annual leave to use up? Enjoy a winter short break in St Ives or Carbis Bay and soak up the winter sun in Cornwall’s microclimate.

There are plenty of benefits to booking a winter short break. You can skip the peak season queues at the best attractions, enjoy cosy nights by the fire in a pub and take in the spectacular winter scenery.

Enjoy a winter short break in St Ives

St Ives is still as beautiful in winter as it is in summer, some might say even more so! Picture crisp morning walks on the Porthminster Beach, early sunsets over St Ives Head and finding snug places to cosy up in like the famous Sloop Inn.

Even Cornwall’s favourite food is primed for you to enjoy on a winter short break. Tuck into a freshly baked Cornish pasty from St Ives Bakery, and watch the steam rise from the inside. The perfect addition to a wintry stroll.

Keen surfers will know that the winter waves are actually the best all year. The ocean has retained the heat from summer, and the wild Atlantic Ocean brings in some fantastic breakers to Cornwall’s north coast.

Another unique activity for winter short breaks is wild weather watching. Some of the coastal cafes and restaurants with amazing sea views offer the best spots when the weather is wild. See the brilliant waves crashing against the shores and cliffs, a dramatic spectacle to say the least!
