Parking in St Ives

St Ives can be notoriously bad for parking in peak season. Recent sales of a couple of parking spaces in St Ives have fetched eye watering prices and have even made the national headline news.The limited public car parking that is available fills up very quickly so if you dont have your own reserved parking space it can be difficult to find a space close to where you want to be, not to mention the additional cost. This is unwelcome hassle and stress that you dont need to start your holiday. At Blue Horizon you dont need to worry about what time you will arrive in order to bag a parking space, the property has its own full-size private parking space directly outside the property.
This gives you the utmost flexibility not just for loading and unloading, but if you fancy a day trip out to visit one of Cornwall's many other attractions, then the car is right there for you and you can relax in the knowledge that you can park easily whenever you decide to return. On the other hand as Blue Horizon is within a stones throw of the beaches, shops and restaurants you could just park up and leave it there for the whole length of your stay and just relax into your holiday.

 

Internet and BT TV at Blue Horizon, St Ives!

All guests staying at Blue Horizon, St Ives will now benefit from free unlimited 76mb fibre broadband Wi-Fi.

Along with Wi-Fi, we now also have BT TV. Blue Horizon guests can make use of the BT TV Entertainment package that includes a number of extra channels not available on freeview and BT Sports channels 1 & 2 at no extra charge. The BT TV has a small set top box that facilitates recording TV and films. You might like to record a favourite classic film so that future visitors could also enjoy it at a later date and you can also check through the list of programs already recorded and perhaps pick out a film already recorded by a previous guest.

One particularly useful feature is that if you were perhaps out one evening at say the Porthmeor café overlooking Porthmeor beach enjoying the sunset with a glass of wine and missed a particular program that you were planning to watch, then no need to rush back, stay and enjoy your drink and the unique location and scenery and when the sun has gone down, you can stroll back to the apartment and switch on the TV, locate your program on the TV schedule from earlier and simply watch your show when it suits you. The set top box allows you to easily scroll back through the TV guide over the last 7 days, select your program shown earlier in the evening and watch it at your leisure. This applies to all programs on all channels I believe from the last 7 days.

So, if you like to make the most of what St Ives and Cornwall has to offer and still not miss out on those all important shows, browse the internet, catch up on emails, or check your Facebook status while you're away (perhaps posting photos of your fabulous holiday in St Ives!), Blue Horizon has what you need - along with an idyllic location, spectacular sea views, and every creature comfort.
