  • "Had a wonderful stay at Ocean Gate, lots of family time and memories made."

    Only thing we struggled with was the signal and WiFi not the strongest, but that's only a minor thing. If you don't like walking and exercise then suggest you stay on the actual beach itself, we did more walking than anything else. The walk back from the beach is a killer

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you loved your stay! Thank you again for your comments and we look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Kinds Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

    A real credit to it's owner. Although we only booked a last minute 3-day long weekend break (to take advantage of the forecasted unseasonally good weather) we would certainly book again for a longer stay in the future.

    Location is great for carbis bay beach and a lovely cliff top walk of 20 minutes to St Ives. Dog friendly pub, Cornish Arms 5 minutes walk. Go to Becks Fish and Chips. Would stay here again

  • "We’ve always stay with cabis holidays and never had to complain."

    This place was dirty my daughter found dirty tissues on her bedroom floor . The floors were so dirty our socks were dirty within half an hour of being there. The tray on the door of the fridge was broken so there was old milk all in the fridge where people who had to laid their milk down and it had leaked all over the bottom of the fridge . When we opened the cooker there was some chips on a tray from previous holiday makers and the oven was covered in grease inside . Dead flies on the windowsill not one but many, dirty windows with finger prints all over them inside and outside . The bathroom floor round the pedestal had a ring of dirt round and the bin hadn’t been cleaned at all it was dirty . Yogurt on the coffee table that had been sat a while as it had dried on,the back bedroom smelt of damp and was cold this made the bedding feel and smell damp . There was someone hair all over the floor it was that bad my daughter wanted to go home . Both wardrobes were full of Christmas decorations and high chair and just wasn’t clean this made putting our belongings in there difficult as it limited our space for our cases . The Wi-Fi was mostly no more than 1 bar at most times even with the booster plugged in . A very disappointing stay as we love staying in Carbis , we are really shocked that Carbis Hoildays rented this out with what is been happening with covid we expected better as our check in time was pushed back to allow more cleaning .

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.
