Maps & Directions
We’re very easy to find and there are directions below, depending on which form of transport you’re using.

The A30 runs through Cornwall from Exeter to Penzance. When you reach Lelant take the A3074 into St Ives, eventually turn right (at the St Ives Harbour Hotel) into the town centre where the road turns sharply right and downhill. Follow it down and turn left onto the B3306 / Gabriel Street (NatWest Bank is on the corner) and Park Avenue is the 3rd turning on the left – just off the mini roundabout. Park in the Park Avenue car park, which you come to on the right hand side and then walk down Park Avenue with the wall on your right hand side.
You’ll see a sign for Little Leaf Guest House on the wall on the right hand side: We’re just above there but you need to walk to the end of the wall to double back up the path to our house. Click here to visualise.
See our parking section for more details.
From St Ives train station
Those of you who arrive by train are very lucky. The branch line which runs from St Erth to St Ives is one of the most scenic train journeys in the UK.
Little Leaf Guest House is a 7 minute walk from St Ives train station. It is slightly uphill however so if you have heavy or bulky luggage do let us know in advance and we’ll be pleased to book a taxi to pick you up from the station. If you’re walking follow the main road into St Ives town centre and just before the road turns right to go sharply downhill you’ll see a small set of steps in front of you (next to the estate agent), go up those steps and you’ll find yourself on Tregenna Terrace, turn right and this leads into Park Avenue. Little Leaf Guest House is part of the row of houses raised above the road on the left hand side.
