Beat the Blues: A January Getaway to St Ives

It’s not difficult to see why January can be a gloomy month. We no longer have Christmas just around the corner, the days are still short and we’ve made all of those pesky resolutions – who really wants to start their day with a green juice, anyway?

Fortunately, we think we have the answer to your January blues dilemma. A getaway to St Ives during the first month of the year is just what you need to make sure your 2017 gets off to the best start possible. Here’s what you should get up to once you’re here.

New Year

If you’re planning on ending your 2016 and starting your 2017 in St Ives, then you’re in for a treat. Join the rest of St Ives for a huge fancy dress party and spectacular fireworks display to ring in the start of the New Year. St Ives Harbour Hotel is putting on New Year’s celebrations as well, with a black tie gala on the night itself and a hearty brunch on New Year’s Day.


If you’re looking for a cultured start to your 2017, then look no further. St Ives is awash with galleries and exhibitions. Until 7th January, at Porthminster Gallery you can catch ‘It’s a Gift’ – a Christmas showcase of beautiful handmade works of art, including sea-inspired stoneware pots and paper works by artist Helen Ward.


January is a time for new beginnings. If you’re looking to start something new then you need to get yourself to the Barnoon Workshop. On 21st January, you can take part in the Upcycle Furniture Day and learn how to give a new lease of life to tired-looking pieces of furniture. If one of your resolutions is to take up a new hobby, then this could be the perfect creative choice for you.

We know that another reason January can be a tricky month is because Christmas has depleted your funds. However, St Ives Harbour Hotel is offering fantastic January deals to make sure you can still enjoy a luxurious getaway.
