All about parking
Some of the properties do have their own parking space which is included in the rental and we also have several reserved spaces on private land which you are able to book with any of the properties subject to availability.
Please see below our map of St Ives for Cornwall Council long stay car park locations marked with a blue 'P' and other parking locations such as park and ride services marked with a green 'P'.
Countywide rover tickets can be obtained in advance from the Cornwall Council website using the 'EasiPermits' platform. These weekly rover tickets are charged at £47 per permit and are valid across the county in Cornwall Council long stay car parks and you will need to provide your registration number when purchasing this county-wide rover ticket.
Alternatively set up an account with JustPark through their website or app on the day of arrival. You can pay for the rover ticket using a debit/credit card. Please note that the tickets will start from 00:01 and finish at midnight on the expiry date.
Important: these permits do not guarantee you a space.
