Guest House set in peaceful grounds on the edge of artistic St Ives
With ample free parking, the Old Vicarage is situated in a quiet residential area on the western edge of town. Close to the coast path and walking distance to the town centre and beaches. The Old Vicarage is also ideally placed for visiting Land's End, the Minack Theatre, the Eden Project and the Isles of Scilly because, being located on the edge of town there is no need to negotiate very narrow streets of St. Ives town centre.

Location and What's Nearby
The house is just half a mile from St Ives town centre and beaches. St Ives is an award-winning holiday destination, home to the Tate St Ives, offering a seemingly subtropical oasis where the beaches are golden and the quality of light is an inspiration.
The town has been attracting artists for decades who come to capture the area’s undeniable natural beauty. It started with J M W Turner and the marine artist Henry Moore who first came to St Ives in the mid-1800s and since then the town has become a magnet for some of the world’s greatest painters, sculptors and ceramists.

“Based on this visit and our 5 other visits we would heartily recommend the Old Vicarage. It is a Victorian themed B and B with the facilities you would expect from a small hotel. The breakfast menu is extensive and prepared with care to your requirements using quality ingredients. The en suite bedrooms are well furnished and super clean and the breakfast staff are kind and friendly. We have stayed in the family rooms which are great too but this more of a quiet comfortable hotel for adults or older children. Make sure you sample Dianne’s home made yoghurt! It is very handy for walking into St Ives which saves the hassle of parking. The downhill walk is 10 mins; uphill on the way back is harder but in our late 50s we manage!”Blackandwhitemariner, Trip Advisor
