A bit about St Ives, Cornwall

Porthminster beach is ahead and over on the far right is Smeaton’s Pier. A bit of an oddity as it is a pier with two light houses.

The first, rather squat light house was built where the original pier ended, and the second light house was built on an extension added to the pier some years later. Why then never got rid of the old, now redundant, light house is anybody’s guess.


The Cheese Board has been here for over 20 years and they are experts in all things cheese. They sell over 100 varieties of cheese from all over Europe and if you require bottle of red to send it all down with, then they can help you here too. They even do a delivery service. What’s not to like!

A few doors down you will find Drings the butchers. Meat is their speciality, and their sausages are made on the premises, they even run classes in butchery should you wish to take them. I make my own sausages myself and it is very satisfying watching your own recipe sizzling away on a BBQ.

The Creaky Shed is a local greengrocer specialising in seasonal food, much of it unusual and interesting varieties. The interior has a touch of a rustic allotment shop about it. And the displays at the shop front worthy of Chelsea.

Of course, these are not the cheapest places you can go to, although if you look abroad, especially in the Mediterranean countries where food quality has a far higher currency there are far more places like this.

So stepping off of the retail park, and getting at least a portion of the weekly shop from places like these is a real treat and it supports the local community too.
