St Ives has been one of the UK's most popular holiday destination for many years, what makes it most attractive for an investor is the length of the holiday season providing year round potential rental income. St Ives features on the investors' location list alongside many other wonderful places in Cornwall, but to experience St Ives through the different seasons, it is easy to see why St Ives is their final choice. St Ives has developed over recent years recognising the true potential of attracting tourism to the town. The main part of the town has narrow winding streets and traditional fishermans cottages some of which have been transformed to create a contemporary and luxurious feel, they do not usually however offer parking which is sometimes a disadvantage, but this is usually reflected in the purchase price.
