A total joy to visit, wander round the delightful gardens and absorb the wonderful Barbara Hepworth sculptures and her studio too. An absolute must and very reasonable with a joint ticket for The Tate.

Amazing history of an amazing woman with stunning pieces of work all wrapped up in a traditional Cornish fishing cottage. Could have spent hours and hours here. So inspirational.

I really enjoyed our visit to the house , the gardens are beautiful . It was really busy and a little hard to stop and read / look at things but I’m glad we went and would love to return on a quieter day !

Inspiring, beautiful, tranquil gardens. The museum is useful for those that do not follow her work and serve as a reminder of the effort that goes into the finished pieces outside. Potentially inappropriate for wheelchairs, the different perspectives of the work were brilliant.

This is on of my favourite places to visit in St Ives. It has a magical or mysterical feel about it. It is so peaceful and full of beautiful sculptures. Not for children. Get a ticket that allows access to the Tate and the gardens.

This substantial producer created a garden to display her work along side her studio. Major pieces are on display. We had amazing weather and the garden & sculptures looked at their best.
