St Ives is a small but precious destination on the Cornish coast of England, with a picturesque town clinging to the rugged cliffs around an old port. Despite its small size, it hits all the right notes for a great family holiday destination – charming cottages, award-winning eateries, blue-flag beaches, and plenty to do for the little ones.

It still retains that uniquely English bizarreness, though – look out for the Hurling the Silver Ball custom, which sees a metal ball getting thrown from one person to the other in a chase across the town.
