Two secure parking spaces are now available. One space is suitable for a medium to large car and the other is for a small to medium car. The larger car space will always be offered first to guests staying in the Apartment. (£7.50 per night or £47 per week) The gated carpark is located 3 minutes away and visitors will be given the keycard upon arrival when they unload. The keycard must be always returned at the same time as the accommodation keys other wise further charges will be incurred.
Parking in St Ives is very restricted, especially in the summer months. If you intend touring the weekly (or longer term) Cornwall Rover Parking ticket will allow you to park in most (but not all) long-term car parks in Cornwall (see the website for more information and prices). Note that this does not guarantee you a place in any specific car park.
You can buy this Rover ticket in advance online and the ticket will be sent to you by post (so give yourself enough time for the ticket to arrive – the website recommends at least two weeks). If you are not sure you’ve got enough time for this, let us know and we can get one for you which you can collect from us when you arrive in return for the relevant fee in cash (as at January 2018, the weekly price is £47).
The list of car parks you can use with this ticket is available on the website link above. In St Ives, there are five car parks:
- Barnoon Long Stay (TR26 1JD)
- Island (TR26 1SY)
- Park Avenue (TR26 1QE)
- Station (TR26 2BH)
- Trenwith Long Stay (TR26 1DD)
Note that these will all be very busy. Especially in summer, it is recommended to use the Park and Ride car park in Leland Saltings (TR26 3DL) and take the train into St Ives (see HERE for more info), which takes around 10 minutes. This car park, which has space for around 200 cars, is included in the Cornwall Rover Parking ticket.
Click on the name of the car park for more information about prices (e.g. day rates and out of season charges) and on the postcode of the local car parks for a Google map picture of location and distance from Vivian House.
If you are driving a larger vehicle (e.g. a Motorhome), your options are more limited. You can find more information HERE.
