No4 St Ives is an established Bed and Breakfast, in a grand Victorian house just 5 minutes from the harbour.  We offer bright, modern guest rooms, with new ensuites and all rooms have their own individual character.  The property was completely renovated and refurbished to a very high standard, and we re-opened as a B&B in September 2016.

St Ives is a beautiful town – the jewel in the Atlantic, with its turquoise seas, incredible light, five sandy beaches and rugged coastline.  Perfect for a sunny day on the beach or coastal walking, or surfing, water sports and swimming. Or listening to some live music or feasting your eyes on wonderful art and visiting artists at work in their studios.  Or simply relaxing in the freshest air in the country and evenings out enjoying the best fish and Cornish produce in a very wide choice of cafes, restaurants and pubs.

For walkers and sight-seers who want a break from driving, St Ives has very good bus and train services for day trips and activities, enabling you to easily explore west Cornwall and beyond.

Our philosophy is to offer our guests a relaxed, friendly, clean and comfortable environment. A superb night’s sleep and delicious breakfast are the foundation stones of No4 St Ives. We want to ensure that you are set up for each day, so you can make the most of your holiday in Cornwall and the wonderful town of St Ives, with its five beaches, unique art galleries, quirky cafes, great pubs and superb restaurants.

We love living here and will be on hand to offer advice and assistance in any way we can.

We hope to see you soon!

Breakfast Room

After a fabulous night’s sleep, it was important to create the right environment for guests to enjoy a hearty and healthy breakfast.

If you enjoy Victorian charm you will love the Breakfast Room with its high ceiling, exposed granite, huge chandelier and many period features. Add to this modern café tables and chairs and we hope you’ll agree we have created the right atmosphere for you to enjoy what we believe is the most important meal of the day – Breakfast!

With a love of good food ourselves, we only offer dishes and ingredients that we are happy with. This includes locally-sourced products wherever possible with a focus always on taste, quality and consistency. Our breakfast choices always include fresh fruit, local yoghurt, cereals and granola, as well as a range of hot dishes cooked freshly to order, including the ever popular ‘Full English’.

Breakfast is served 08:30 – 10:00

Guest Lounge

Please feel free to relax in the guest lounge and help yourself to a Tea or Coffee. If you are wondering what to do the next day or where to go whilst you are in Cornwall, have a look at the large map, guides and brochures in the lounge and check our daily tide times board for St Ives.

Of course, you can just relax and watch the large flat screen TV, read one of the many books available, play a game around the table or even play the piano, if that is your thing!

Alternatively, why not just sink into the sofa and enjoy the fantastic views.
