    “This is a well positioned flat. It ...”
    This is a well positioned flat. It may not have great views out of the windows, but it is convenient, comfortable and warm. It is close to a bus route to St Ives, Truro, Penzance, so you don;t need to use your car once arrived - or could even arrive by train (using a taxi to get from the station). Access to the parking is not too easy, so a larger car than ours (Renault Scenic) would have problems. The St Ives Tesco is half a mile from the flat. ...

The property

Perfectly located for a beach holiday, just a 10-minute walk via a steep road from the award-winning Blue Flag beach at Carbis Bay and a short drive from St Ives, this ground floor, two bedroom flat offers comfortable accommodation, ideal for a family or two couples.

From the hallway, turn left and you enter into an open plan living room, with both sitting and dining areas, plus a well-equipped kitchen.

The apartment has a double and a twin bedroom, as well as a bathroom, giving you the opportunity of a long soak in the bath at the end of a day on the beach.

Facing north east and just one mile east of St Ives, Carbis Bay is about a mile long and rarely has any surf, making it ideal for bathing and families with young children.

This is just one of an array of beaches that make up St Ives Bay though, officially listed as one of the world’s most beautiful.

The town itself offers a choice of cafes, top-class restaurants, famous pubs and good takeaways, while the centre of St Ives has galleries, shops, bars and a pretty, busy harbour with boat trips to Seal Island.

In a wonderful location, you have the opportunity to park your car outside and leave it there for the duration of your holiday, as the beach is a short walk away and the delightful coastal train, one of the most scenic in the country, runs close by from Carbis Bay railway station, connecting you to the rest of Cornwall.

An ideal location for a seaside holiday, all year round.

About the location


Penzance 6 miles.

One of Cornwall's prettiest harbour towns, St Ives offers narrow streets, tight-packed cottages nestling around the quayside, the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth museum, fabulous beaches, superb shops, a thriving community of artists, great pubs and restaurants and much more. With its semi Bohemian lifestyle and romantic air, it's easy to see why this is the county's premier holiday resort. The surrounding area has much for the visitor to see and do with abundant wildlife, fabulous coastal walks, top quality surfing and the Celtic mysteries of the Land's End Peninsula are all within easy reach. A superb destination!
