Toms Holidays position on the cusp of St. Ives Bay gives us breath-taking sunsets and views over to St. Ives. We can also boast some magnificent ‘Big Skies’. It’s a truly wonderful experience to see the sky full of stars all the way to the horizon.
The beach on our doorstep is a glorious five miles of golden sand. Perfect for those lazy days reading, paddling in the clear waters or maybe catching the odd wave if surfing is your thing!
The rugged landscape around West Cornwall and St. Ives Bay has always been a beacon to artists and writers. Godrevy lighthouse was the inspiration to Virginia Woolf’s seminal work To the Lighthouse. Many famous artists have also made St. Ives over the years such as the sculptor Barbera Hepworth. St. Ives is such a bastion of artistic excellence we have our own Tate Gallery in the town.
West Cornwall also has a thriving music scene. Many of the bars and pubs have live music at the weekends. The Hall for Cornwall in Truro also hosts many other touring bands. The Minack Theatre in Porthcurno also offers a breath taking theatre experience. The theatre is cut into the cliff side. Often basking sharks steal the show by swimming in bay.
The arts aside we also have several top notch breweries in Cornwall such as Skinners and St. Austell breweries as well as a successful vineyard. All offer tours and tasting opportunities.
