    “The property provided a good base to explore some of Cornwall.”

    It would, however, have been good to know about the building works that were going on outside the property as it was noisy and disruptive on occasions. Had we known about the works, we may not have booked that particular property.

    It would, however, have been good to know about the building works that were going on outside the property as it was noisy and disruptive on occasions. Had we known about the works, we may not have booked that particular property. There was also an outside light that stayed on all night and shone quite brightly into the property which was a little annoying when trying to get the children off to sleep.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are sorry that you weren’t aware of the building works, we can see that this notice has been in place for some time prior to your booking and we hope that people see this notice regarding the building work which can be found at the bottom of the web page for the property and also appears at the top on the page when booking. Gwinear has included a 20% reduction in rental cost due to the proximity of the building works. Apologies that the light outside seemed disruptive, we will pass this onto our property management team to see if there is anything we can do to rectify it. We hope to welcome you back in the future and thank you again for your comments. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

About the location


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.
