A birthday break at Una St Ives

A much-needed slice of super king Cornwall relaxation

At the end of a long old year (and indeed our Christmas party!), there was nothing we could do with more than a bit of R&R whilst celebrating my girlfriend Charley’s birthday. Una Aurum 55 provided the perfect base for exactly that.

Una is a one bedroom holiday home which has everything you need to have a good holiday; brand new, modern, well equipped, comfortable and a massive super king-size bed. Add to that the onsite facilities; brand new fitness suite, swimming pool and spa facilities, and you’ve got a perfect place to stay. If that wasn’t enough, the location, just minutes’ drive from Carbis Bay, really is a treat.

Even on quite possibly the windiest day on record, Carbis Bay looked amazing. We enjoyed a nice, windy walk along the beach and watched a few seals playing around in the waves – genuinely one of the best beaches I have been to in the South West, which I imagine looks unbelievable when the sun is shining!

St Ives is a lovely town, with amazing views across the harbour and out to sea from many of the quaint, cobbled streets within the town centre. There are plenty of decent restaurants and places to have a drink too. Just to test it out for any of you guys thinking of going along, we had a burger in the Hub Box; a burger bar which had won a national award, and it certainly lived up to its acclaim!

On our final night we went for dinner at a restaurant which was right on the front overlooking the harbour; Porthminster Kitchen. Excellent quality food and definitely a good way to celebrate a birthday! I would definitely recommend Una Aurum 55 as a place to stay, I loved it, Charley loved it, and we'll be back.
