    In the back room where me and my daughter shared has black mould over the back of the curtains. We bad to go to tesco and get mould remover and try to scrub it off. The view out of the front window was really beautiful and was breathtaking. In the kitchen there is everything we needed. I wouldn't recommend this place to people who can't walk up and down steps as we couldn't find wheelchair access. The parking is really tight. We were in number 7, we have a large car and we found it really difficult to park in the small space. The parking area could have very easily scratched the sides of the car. But like I said the view is beautiful, it is a very comfortable place, the beds were very comfortable too, none of us had a bad night sleep. The arrival time of 5pm was a problem as we had to travel down through the night so the little one could sleep through the journey. We were stuck out in the rain just walking around St ives for hours.

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.
