A Father’s Day Weekend Away

Your dad has been with you through it all, and we can almost guarantee that he rarely makes time for himself to simply relax. Father’s Day is your chance to show him how much you appreciate all he’s done (and continues to do) for you – so what can you do for him that’s reflective of just how much he means to you?

We think a weekend away is an excellent option, particularly if you can get the whole family involved. St Ives is the perfect place for that much-needed rest and relaxation time – the fresh coastal air will have him feeling like a new man by the time he heads home. Here’s what to do once you’re here.

Summer fayre
On Saturday, head to the St Ives Lifeboat Summer Fayre at the St Ives Lifeboat Station from any time between 10am and 3pm. It’s a fundraising event and you’ll find plenty of stalls offering delicious homemade cakes – a gentle way to start off the day.

Exhibition
Of course, there are plenty of exhibitions on in St Ives, and we’re sure you’ll stumble across several as you wander through the streets. However, we particularly recommend the work on display at the St Ives Arts Club if your dad is a budding art connoisseur. The Ultramarine Studio exhibition features new work from seven artists and it’s free to attend.

Pamper
While you head out for a walk, book Dad in for a spa treatment – we know it doesn’t sound very macho, but we guarantee that he’ll love it. Choose from a relaxing massage, a facial, or even a manicure. He’ll leave feeling like a million dollars and wanting to book himself in for the next day, trust us!

Lunch
You can enjoy a three-course Father’s Day lunch for just £18.50 at the St Ives Harbour Hotel & Spa – an absolute steal for what promises to be an exquisite meal. Options include salmon for main and classic lemon tart for pudding – could there be a better way to round off your weekend?

If you’re looking to spoil your dad this coming Father’s Day, then book in at St Ives Harbour Hotel & Spa. To find out more about our coastal retreat, get in touch.
