  • "The holiday property was clean and very comfortable."

    Beds excellent, bed linen and towels were very good quality. Hot tub and beach house a real bonus. Well equipped kitchen however, a few more dinner plates would be helpful as there were only seven. If they were used at breakfast and/or lunch, there were not enough for dinner in the evening. Our biggest disappointment was the lack of hot water. Coming back from the beach with two toddlers, we needed to give them a hot shower. Hot water was not plentiful, the tank was small and set to only heat up twice a day. I contacted Sykes on the Sunday and was given some very helpful advice from Conor. He told me that this issue had been mentioned before in previous feedback. The owners were contacted and we were told how to boost the hot water. This rectified the problem to a certain extent. The floor of the wet room became very slippery after use. My daughter is 10 months pregnant and I have just had a total hip replacement; the floor was far too slippery for us to navigate. Using the other toilet in the en suite bedroom is an option during the day but not once people had gone to bed. A rigid squeeji mop would help to move the water to the drain. Alternatively, a rubber mat would have helped. My grand daughter, who is only two, slipped and had a nasty bang in her head. A long handled broom/ dustpan and brush would also be helpful. In summary, we had a really lovely holiday. Would certainly use Sykes company again.

    First of all with reference to both bathrooms there are rubber baths mats and commercial extractors. The wetroom has a extractor that will clear the water in 15mins. The water tank is immersion not gas...simple. The overide switch does indeed rectify any overuse in water should you drain the tank. There is a hoover, steam mop, dustpan and brush which I think sufficient. There is a dishwasher at Moorside. You mentioned that you had a really good holiday im so glad you enjoyed all that Moorside has to offer. Thank you for your comments and indeed the 94 out of 100 score... Property Owner

  • "A great find!"

    Lovely, well furnished property perfect for what we wanted. Hot tub is a fab addition. Garden is perfect for little ones to potter round in. We booked a travel for and high chair, both of which were ready and waiting for us when we arrived. Lovely touch of a welcome basket too. Did contact owners regarding one issue which was very quickly rectified. Walkable to Carbis Bay beach and a lovely restaurant - the Gannett. 5 min drive to St. Ives. Great spot and would definitely look to stay again if in Cornwall. Thanks so much!

    Hi Kate thanks for the glowing reference for Moorside. So glad you and your family had a great time.We are slightly biased but we love Moorside. Pete and i designed and built Moorside with comfort and ease in mind. All from an old chalet! Hope to see you again x Lisa & Pete Property Owner

  • "Had a lovely stay at Moorside."

    The house is in a great location for Carbis Bay and St Ives. The renovation has been done to a really high standard with all the modern touches to make it really comfortable and homely. Little touches like a welcome hamper with fresh coffee and Cornish tea were a welcome surprise after a long journey too along with the hot tub with convenient beach house right next to it. The only point for improvement would be that the water tank is quite small so is a little difficult for a group of 5 or 6 to all shower in the evening or morning. But the owner was really helpful over text message explaining how to manually turn it on. Would definitely recommend in the future. X

    Thanks Jennifer for the kind words we are really please you enjoyed your stay and all that Moorside has to offer. The water tank is on the small side but its the only place it could be located for the esse cooker to heat. Easily solved with hitting the overide button does come on twice a day morning and afternoon! If the dishwasher is used rather than handwashing water is sufficient. Moorside is an eco house originally a 1930's chalet repurpose and improved to what she is today. Property Owner

The property

Resting in the heart of the idyllic coastal village of Carbis Bay in Cornwall is the eco-friendly Moorside.

This fabulous, single-storey, Danish inspired eco-home repurposed from a 1930's chalet.

Sustainably built which benefits from an unbeatable location close to the breath-taking Cornish coast, a contemporary and stylish, open-plan interior, three sumptuous bedrooms and a fully enclosed and private garden with hot tub; the perfect setting for families or friends seeking a sustainable retreat in Carbis Bay.

After a day by the sea, cross the threshold into your new home-from-home to find an open-plan living space where you can unwind on the plush sofas in front of the 75" Smart TV and watch on as the designated chef of the group cooks up a storm in the fully-equipped kitchen.

Sample their culinary delights at the dining take or step outside to take advantage of the spacious garden with table and chairs on the decking, ideally suited to an alfresco affair.

Later, indulge in a soothing soak in the hot tub which benefits from being undercover so you can bask in its warmth whatever the weather, similarly there is also a covered summerhouse where you can enjoy evening drinks and the great outdoors at any time of year.

When stars appear overhead, travel back inside to freshen up in the sleek wet room ahead of catching your rest in one of three bedrooms; choose from a four-poster king-size with Smart TV and en-suite shower room, a king-size (zip/link) with Smart TV or a double.

During the day explore the centre of Carbis Bay where you can pick up your essentials at local stores, enjoy a meal out at The Cornish Arms or experience the beauty of the coast with a trip to the breath-taking Carbis Bay Beach.

While away sunny days upon its golden shores, paddle in the azure, or try something more adventurous with water sports like kayaking and paddle boarding.

Alternatively, enjoy leisurely walks along the coastal path and breathe in the refreshing sea air; follow the path to the iconic harbour town of St Ives where you can tour the Tate, the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden or amble around the harbour.

The path continues to the Penwith Heritage Coast and meanders through a myriad of charming coastal villages offering hidden gems.

Experience all this and more from the eco-home Moorside.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

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.

Please Note: The property is located on a bridleway which is frequently used by horses; please keep to a 5mph speed limit.
