The Anchorage

Welcome to The Anchorage, St Ives!

Set in the heart of the cobbled old town, The Anchorage is a beautiful three-bedroomed, Grade-II listed, guest house dating back to the 1730’s. Our comfortable retreat is nestled just steps away from fabulous restaurants, award-winning beaches and the famous St Ives School of Painting. Enjoy an ice-cream on the harbour, a day of surfing the waves or a tour around the Tate St Ives, each just moments from the front door.

Each of our cosy rooms is equipped with an ensuite or private bathroom, smart TV, tea and coffee making facilities and a mini fridge. Brand new pocket spring mattresses for total comfort await guests looking for a rejuvenating break. Rooms are offered on an accommodation basis only as there are plenty of places to eat in and around The Anchorage’s location.

St Ives has a rich history as an ancient fishing village, artist’s retreat and world-renowned holiday destination. With a Blue-flag awarded beach, multitude of independent shops and exciting activities only metres away, our guest house provides a home away from home while guests enjoy the best of the Cornish coast.
