Option 1: Take the M4 or M5 to Bristol, then join the M5 south. At the bottom of the M5 (Exeter) take the A30 towards Penzance turning off at the St Erth roundabout and follow the signs to St Ives, passing through Lelant, then Carbis Bay and on to St Ives.
Option 2: Alternatively from the south east take the M3 south to pick up the A303 heading west and pick up the bottom of the M5 at Exeter then as above.
