  • "It is a beautiful house in a beautiful location!"

    Easy to get to and in a peaceful spot! Hot tub and huge balcony was lovely, overlooking Carbis Bay! It is very well equipped with crockery, cutlery, etc and with most things that you would expect in a holiday let including dressing gowns, but no basic cleaning materials, no washing up liquid, no basic condiments - oil, herbs, etc, no hand wash. However, the dishwasher was broken on arrival. We were phoned and told this. Engineer was there when we arrived without the correct testing equipment and then returned 4 days later, diagnosed the problem, new pump needed, said it wouldn’t be fixed before we left. Still had 3 days of the holiday left. We were very surprised that parts couldn’t be ordered with next day delivery. Sykes were not interested at all in trying to get it sorted with any urgency. The bottom line is that we had a lovely time, just disappointed in Sykes’ attitude. The house is also up for sale so they may not look at replacing it.

  • "We had a lovely holiday."

    It has an amazing view of Carbis Bay and the hot tub was a lovely. Great location to walk into St Ives. We were just disappointed with the cleanliness and maintenance of the lodge. It had cobwebs everywhere, dead flies on the window ledges. Dust on the bedside lamps and shades. Toilet not flushing correctly, spot lights not working, bedroom blind broken, broken plug socket in the bedroom and the sofa felt unstable! This was all reported. The property is looking very tired and needs a freshen up, but this could be due to it being for sale.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and the area. We were sorry to hear you did not find the property up to our usual standard however were so pleased that one of the local Carbis Bay Holidays team and the housekeeper were able to attend and sort these areas straight away. Thank you again and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Fabulous property, loved the view, the hot tub, open plan living area and it was so quiet/private."

    Well equipped kitchen but no hand wash, kitchen spray supplied. Only 30 min beautiful walk to St Ives or hop on the train in 5. We had a truly wonderful week as a couple but if house full as a 7 only having one very small ensuite and one bathroom would be a challenge. Hope to return, many thanks. And thank you for the awesome weather in October, so so lucky.

  • "The property is lovely, well laid out and beautiful views, comfy sofa area in living room and plenty of outdoor seating, comfortable beds and clean bedding but we felt the house is in need of a freshen up, certain areas look tired."

    the BBQ was old and very weathered and put us off using it, the outside cushions needed a clean, there was a screw coming out of the bottom of the bathroom cupboard, black mould along the back of the sink and the sink and the bath were marked, not dirty but marked from so much use, the fan blades were really dusty. lovely stay we really enjoyed our holiday but the place just needs a little TLC.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave Feedback following your recent stay at Fernhill Lodge and we are so pleased that you really enjoyed your stay. We are however very sorry to hear that the property did not meet our usual high standard of cleanliness and we have passed your comments on to the Housekeeper that looks after the property for their attention.

  • "Great house and place to stay."

    Our only negative comment would be the place should have been cleaner. The outside furniture (apart from the hot tub) was very dirty including the cushions. The windows were really dirty and the house was ok but could have been better.

    Dear Mr White Thank you for your feedback following your recent stay at Fernhill Lodge. We are pleased you found it a great place to stay. I will pass you comments on to the housekeeper. Kind Regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "Very comfortable well equipped property, with fabulous views."

    The kitchen had great equipment for cooking, the only thing missing was some mugs to drink from. Perhaps I drink a cup of tea quicker than some people - but for me a cup is not big enough :-) We heard strange noises a couple of nights and thought someone was upstairs, but after reading the guest book we saw that someone else had worked out it was the chairs on the uneven balcony surface rocking back and forth in the wind! It honestly sounded like someone was bouncing a ball on the ceiling. It didn't keep me awake but I did wonder what it was until I read the guest book. Might be worth putting something under the chair legs to even them out, or at least warn people of this in the notes so they can move the chairs at night if it bothers them (only happens when it is windy). Some of the instructions in the folder seemed out of date - there was reference to a separate parking area which I can only imagine used to be where the next door property now sits - the description just didn't make sense - we spent quite a lot of time looking for this as we had 2 cars and the turning area in front of the property is very tight. Leaving instructions were also a bit confusing - the folder info said a padded envelope would be provided and to put this in a letterbox by the gate, but I couldn't see where that was, and the email instructions seemed to indicate the key should go back where we got it from (in the key safe), so I just did that. The hot tub was brilliant and we used it a lot - my only comment there is that it would have been nice to have a robe for everyone in the property, rather than just 4 - it is supposed to sleep 7 and we were 6 adults so all using the hot tub, and in March the robes were much appreciated for those who had them! All in all, this is a lovely property in a great location, and we would return. My comments are just small points for improvement to make it even better.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, it is really important to us. We have addressed the information regarding keys on leaving and hope the instructions are now much clearer and thank you for highlighting this. We do hope to welcome you again in the near future, Kindest Regards The Carbis Bay Holidays team. Property Owner

  • "Fernhill is a lovely house well placed in Carbis Bay for visiting St Ives and the whole surrounding area, including - especially important for us - walking the South West Coastal path."

    The coastal bus stop is only a few minutes walk away; there is a good convenience store nearby; a large Tesco supermarket is about 5 minutes drive away; there is a good pub and a fantastic fish & chip restaurant/take away. For more refined dining, the Carbis Bay hotel's restaurants are close by, too. The house itself is bright, spacious, clean, and has very comfortable beds. We were there for 4 nights in February and so were delighted that the heating and hot water system were very efficient. The covered balcony is a gem, even if February, when we were able to sit out, sheltered from both wind and rain. Would we go back for a longer stay? Resoundingly yes! In fact we have already booked another two weeks in June which we are very much looking forward to.

    Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you had such a wonderful stay and loved the property and area just as much as we do! We look forward to welcoming you back in June! Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "The whole experience, from my telephone booking to the end of our stay was excellent."

    The person I booked with was friendly, helpful and efficient. The property was amazing, with everything you needed. Little extras make so much difference, robes, Bluetooth speakers, SKY TV and the lovely Christmas tree and decorations. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you needed, no shortages of cutlery, plates or saucepans. Plenty of towels. I cannot praise Fernhill Lodge enough and will definitely return. I highly recommend Sykescottages as a company and the property we stayed in. We left a day early, as our plans had changed and when I phoned to inform Sykes, the gentleman on the phone was very concerned that we were OK and that there wasn't anything wrong our end - That's excellent customer service. Thank you again, you have added a loyal customer, to, I am sure, a growing list.

  • "The house is fabulous and we had a wonderful stay - spotlessly clean and kitted out to a high standard."

    The location is perfect - 10 min walk to the beautiful beach down a lovely footpath and wonderful sea views from the house. The only thing we felt was lacking was enough clothes drying space. On a beach holiday we have loads of wetsuits, swimsuits, towels etc along with general clothes to wash and dry. The house could really benefit from a proper tumble drier and a much bigger / second clothes rack. It often rained so trying to dry things on the outdoor washing line wasn’t practical.

    Hi Alexandra, Thank you for taking the time to leave Feedback following your recent stay at Fernhill Lodge and I’m so pleased to hear it was a wonderful stay. I agree Fernhill Lodge is in a great location in Carbis Bay and has great sea views.

    Well stocked kitchen and we loved the ice maker in the fridge freezer for our cold drinks. Beds were really comfortable and it was lovely to use the hot tub to relax further. Only minor gripe was that the keys weren’t available on arrival (they weren’t in the security box so had to wait around an hour for someone to arrive, just a little frustrating after a 6 hour drive).

  • "Paying a premium rate for the accommodation you have every right to expect everything to be spot on, as the listing does not tell you there may be issues."

    Sadly the fridge/freezer had a fault and was allegedly to be replaced on our departure date. Similarly the hot tub had bits missing, jets not working and its location needed a good clean. I think the Owner should offer a modest amount of compensation if everything is not as you led to expect. The location is possibly second to none and overall we loved being there, little niggles apart.

  • "“We have recently returned from holidaying with you and booked the lodge for a relaxing week for both of us and it certainly was."

    The lodge was beautiful, clean and very well equipped everything you needed was there and more. It was a great base for exploring the wonderful countryside of Cornwall. The recent addition of the hot tub was a good move, as after a day of walking and sightseeing, it's lovely to hop in and relax, looking over the bay watching the lights come on one by one in the houses below. I would love return one day with my grandchildren as I'm sure they would love the house and the great beaches Cornwall has to offer. Thank you Carbis Bay Holidays for a fantastic week and hope to return sometime soon.“ H.Taper

    I will try and list comments to make it easier to read. The Housekeeper met us on arrival and was lovely and very welcoming. She showed us all around the house and offered some tips on local pubs, walks etc. which was very useful. The house has everything you could possibly want. It is fitted out to the very highest standard and is immaculately clean. The bedrooms are beautiful, with high quality bedding and furniture. The gardens with hot tub and sun loungers was very much appreciated and enjoyed every day. The position overlooking the stunning Carbis Bay would be difficult to top! We enjoyed breakfast on the first floor terrace every morning and took in the spectacular view. We would definitely return to Fernhill and would recommend Carbis a Bay Holiday to everyone. Thank you all very much.“ M.Edwards.

    The hot tub was definitely a bonus, we all enjoyed it. Fernhill Lodge was lovely and clean, very light and airy, and very well equipped, the views from the balcony were stunning. We enjoyed breakfast on the patio every morning , listening to the birds singing and taking in the lovely views across Carbis Bay. We found a lovely little pub the Cornish Arms about 10min walk from house, the food was tasty and very good value, the owners were very pleasant made us all welcome. we would recommended it highly. The local Tesco up the road was very handy for any essentials we needed. We enjoyed the lovely walk down to Carbis beach, and had a nice coffee and ice cream at the beach cafe with views to die for. The train ride into St Ives was lovely, very relaxing and again stunning views , only 4 mins journey for £1.00. In St Ives we can recommend the Alba Restaurant for something a little bit special, and the Life boat pub/restaurant for lovely food at reasonable prices. I must mention the Taxis services we used on a couple of occasions, Ace Cars in st Ives very reasonably priced, friendly. and prompt. Overall we had a wonderful holiday, and we will definitely consider staying at Fernhill Lodge again "Pure Luxury"." K. Claire

  • ""We were VERY impressed with our holiday in Fernhill Lodge."

    The location is out of this world, the standard of cleanliness was wonderful, it was spotless. The house was spacious. luxurious, and had every conceivable requirement covered. All in all, we had one of our best holidays ever. We visit Cornwall a lot, and my favourite places to visit are Fowey, Padstow, Mousehole, Mevagissy, and of course, St Ives. I love the light and the way that its completely different to anywhere else we visit. The shops/galleries and eateries are great...we bought several things from 'beatengreen' this visit. A new shop/workshop thats been opened. Welcome addition, its 'shabby chic' furniture is funky and fab. As always we ate at Porthminster cafe a couple of times. The quality of the food/views to die for combination wins me over every time. We also enjoyed a lovely carvery Sunday Lunch at The Lifeboat Inn, a pub in the harbour, where the bar staff and waiting staff were really friendly and full of local knowledge." S. & K. Beasley

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.
