Holt Island Nature Reserve is an award-winning, tranquil green space, minutes from the centre of St Ives beside All Saints Parish Church. The habitat type is called wet woodland and there is much wildlife and many different types of plants that have adapted to the damp conditions.

There is a raised boardwalk, which makes the Reserve accessible to prams and wheelchairs and there is plenty of seating, some with picnic tables. The Holt cabin, complete with bench seating, a nature table, books and children's activity sheets and displays is worth a visit.

Each year we work with the Norris Museum to hold a free Family Fun Day. This year it will be held on Tuesday 29th May fron 10.00 am until 3.00 pm and our theme will be Dinosaurs!
