i have been to st Ives 3 times now an soon it will be 4 in October. the first year we went in the summer and the second time as well, but because we now have the dog we went in autumn because that's when dogs are allowed on beaches. i loved the st Ives cottage we stayed in, it was adorable, although it was three floors and the bathroom was on the first floor. in the first 2 years we went to the beach alot but the last time we went in October we went on more walks. st Ives is my favourite place ever i love going there.
