About St Ives Penzance

I’m Onna, the editor and founder of St Ives Penzance. St Ives Penzance first started in 2016, on Instagram, as a way for me to discover more of Cornwall. As I started sharing more of my favourite places, the account began to grow and before I knew it, took on a life of its own.

The website was launched in early 2017, and after utilising my years of experience working in marketing and social media, has developed into a successful blog and directory that focuses on supporting quality, independent Cornish businesses and sharing them with holidaymakers and locals alike. This site is not just for tourists, but for anyone looking to explore the wonders of Cornwall.

The St Ives Penzance team is small but passionate. We’re here to help you find exactly what you’re looking for, whether it’s the perfect nearby lunch spot, family friendly things to do in Cornwall, or a luxury hotel for a weekend away. We’re passionate about Cornwall and all it has to offer, so we’re supporting local businesses and sharing the best of the best.

We’re always happy to provide you with recommendations of where to go and what to do, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch. If you own or work for a business in Cornwall, click here to find out how you can work with us.
