High on the hill overlooking Porthmeor, The Island, and the Tate couldn't be a better place to end up, either for the living or the dead, of course the beach has been there for a long time, the Tate, but a recent addition to the scenery.

My SO and I had a nice, quiet time walking around here during a recent trip to St Ives. A must for any fan of old gravestones, or... More

The Bernhardt leach tiles on Alfred Wallis grave in this cemetery are outstanding. The cemetery overlooks the fantastic Porthmeor beach and Tate St Ives, and in the sun is a tranquil spot in a busy tourist town.

Just below where we stayed, we didn't visit particularly, just walked through on the way back from the beach. Also played on the grass with 2 small children one day to give parents a break - 5 yr old enjoyed looking at the stones and finding out the names! Good for hiding Easter eggs...

If you're having to walk up to Barnoon from the beach ...try the route up through this beautiful place .....be respectful of the surroundings and the lovely Headstones....and stop to enjoy the view a few times (it's very steep)....and the atmosphere of this stunning and wondrous place .

Not our usual review but very close to our rental home. Beautiful peaceful garden with lovely headstones that tell many stories. Lovely views of the sea.
