    “We would have liked to have taken advantage of the discount for the Tate but the gallery told us we need to speak to someone at your office but this was not manned.”

    You need to change the instructions or make different arrangements if this is something you are publicising. The house was really excellent and would recommend it. A couple of extra things in the kitchen would have been helpful. Namely:- A cafetiere or provide filter papers for the filter machine. A bread board or another chopping board would be good. Otherwise very well equipped and a comfortable and wonderful location. We enjoyed having the garden area and covered area to eat outside. Thank you

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 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.
