So, what can we tell you about January in St Ives?
Well the weather is normally a little warmer here than in the rest of the country and it hardly ever snows! You can expect gorgeous crisp walks along the beaches, followed by a nice drink in one of the famous pubs along the harbour like the Sloop Inn or Lifeboat Inn. The Union Inn on Fore Street is dog friendly and The Golden Lion is very popular amongst locals because of its selection of ales and cider.
One thing we’ve just learnt too, a lot of the pubs have January sales – which means half price beers and ciders. What are you waiting for?
Got plans to see in 2013 yet?
Well, New Year’s Eve in St Ives is full of street parties, beach parties, fancy dress and fireworks. Join the masses down by the iconic harbour for celebrations, and if you are staying at Room with a View, you can choose to finish the night watching over the festivities with a glass of champers from the juliet balcony. Either way, your bed for the night will be a convenient staggering distance away!

We’ll leave you with some of our favourite photos of 2012.

Counting down to the first of the May bank holidays?
St Ives will be a hub of activity in May.
In addition to the The St Ives Literary Festival, and The St Ives Food and Drink Festival, Cornwall will be the first destination in Great Britain to receive the Olympic Flame. Lands End will provide a spectacular backdrop to the start of The Olympic Torch Relay on Saturday 19th May 2012 with the flame making its way through the county.
Lands End is only a 30 minute drive away from St Ives, along one of Britain’s most beautiful coastal roads, passing through the idyllic villages of Zennor, Morvah
and St Just.
And if you don’t fancy all that activity, there is always the opportunity to just chill out and enjoy the view!

Last year you could try local cheese, taste some of the finest Cornish Seafood, see the freshest Cornish Mussels being cooked in five different styles, sip a wide variety of gin, go Italian, see what food grows in and around the town or just relax at one of the UK’s most renowned restaurants with wonderfully fresh fish and vegetables produced in their own allotments and in 2012 there will be much more.
We’ve just found out that Aspects Holidays which represents Room with a View is one of the sponsors too and are offering a discount so if you are thinking of coming down and would like to book Room with a View anytime between the 19th May and 2nd June you can get 15% off by quoting ‘St Ives Food Festival’.
