    “"The location is fantastic, two minutes’ walk to the beach, two minutes to the train station to take a train to St Ives which is MUCH easier than parking and cheaper!”

    You can walk to St Ives to (or run) even with the children, a nice steady walk rewarded by a tea and scone at the end ...

    You can walk to St Ives to (or run) even with the children, a nice steady walk rewarded by a tea and scone at the end! The accommodation has outstanding views of the beach/St Ives (fireworks at New Year), showers were out of this world (hard to get out of once in!), all the utensils/white goods were high end, had everything you could ask for. My husband and children found the TV’s with sky Q a huge bonus for films and sports on lazy afternoons! I made use of the washing machine! The beds we found extremely comfortable and cosy, the older girls LOVED their bunk beds! The welcome pack (sparkly wine, apple juice etc) was a lovely welcome and needed after 6 hours in the car! Checking in was simple and straight forward and was wonderful to be able to get into the property a few hours early. We had the best 4 nights away and can’t wait to return! "

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 town 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 boutique 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 branchline. The train journey from Carbis Bay into St Ives is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the country.

There is a Good Housekeeping Bond of £250 for this property. Access to the villa is from a slight slope from the parking space and one step up to the front door. The second bedroom is fitted with a super-king-sized zip and link bed as standard, which can be made up to two singles, on request.
