    “A beautiful apartment just over a mile from St.”

    Ives. It was very clean and modern. High spec appliances and tasteful pictures and ornaments in all rooms. We would have preferred a lower tog quilt than that provided as it was very hot at night. The train station is about a 10 minute walk, and down quite a steep road. Costs £1.00 each way. Beautiful scenery on the journey into St. Ives. There is also a bus stop a few yards from the apartment if you don't fancy the walk down hill. We tended to catch the train there, and bus back.

    Ives. It was very clean and modern. High spec appliances and tasteful pictures and ornaments in all rooms. We would have preferred a lower tog quilt than that provided as it was very hot at night. The train station is about a 10 minute walk, and down quite a steep road. Costs £1.00 each way. Beautiful scenery on the journey into St. Ives. There is also a bus stop a few yards from the apartment if you don't fancy the walk down hill. We tended to catch the train there, and bus back. Bus cost £1.60 each way. Would definitely not recommend driving as parking is a nightmare. It would be beneficial for the apartment to have a dedicated parking space as we struggled to find anywhere close by. We only managed to park outside the apartment twice during our stay. The Cornish Arms pub is about 10 minutes walk going towards St. Ives. Lovely inside and excellent food. There is a fish and chip shop called Becks about 10 minutes walk in the opposite direction. Really good and not too expensive.

About the location

CARBIS BAY

St Ives 2 miles ; Hayle 3.5 miles ; Penzance 8.5 miles

Just a short drive from iconic St Ives, the seaside village of Carbis Bay is best-known for its beautiful stretch of pure white sand. With turquoise waters and sheltered conditions, the beach feels almost subtropical and is the perfect spot for a good old-fashioned day by the sea. The beach is also home to the Ocean Sports Centre, so if sunbathing is not really your thing, why not hire a kayak or SUP and get out on the water instead. Or why not treat yourself to a Spa day at the delightful hotel which overlooks the beach and has a fabulous terrace where cocktails can be enjoyed in the Cornish sunshine? Carbis Bay has a small range of local shops and restaurants as well as a fish & chip takeaway and railway branch line. The train journey from Carbis Bay into St Ives is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the country; St Ives additionally makes for a great day out, with plenty of galleries to explore. The quayside town of Hayle also isn't far and is home to activities for the all the family, including a golf and a wildlife sanctuary. The Godrevy Nature Reserve and Penwith Heritage Coast are also within easy reach from Carbis Bay, providing outdoors and watersports plans with even more activities to partake in, including coasteering and birdwatching. Carbis Bay is truly a wonderful holiday location for those wanting to experience Cornwall's breathtaking coastline.

There is a Good Housekeeping Bond of £100 for this property. Access to the house is up 5 wide paved steps and an additional 10 wooden steps to the front door. Residential roadside parking within a few minutes walk.
