    Had to dry it in living room.

    Many thanks for your feedback, we will be sure to pass this onto the owner of Seathrift for their consideration. We hope to welcome you back to Carbis Bay Holidays again in the future. Kind regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "We have left the bed linen on because we did not receive notice as we do not have a modern smart phone to let us know what we have to do before leaving the property."

    We hope that has not caused a problem. There is a chance that the information was at the property but it was missed, , we only just noticed this e- mail on our computer when we returned home.

    Thank you for letting us know and that's no problem at all. We do hope you enjoyed your holiday at Seathrift an we look forward to welcoming you back. Best wishes, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "This apartment is all about the view which is breathtaking."

    There were some cobwebs, the kitchen tap is loose, the grill is so hot it's unusable even on it's lowest setting. The bath seal is split and a big gap opens up when you fill it with water. The living room lamp turns itself up and down and all the other lights are too bright for a relaxing evening with that amazing view. The bed is very comfortable and the apartment very spacious, I like the querky layout and all the windows. Thanks for the bluetooth speaker, nice touch. The parking is very tight, my car only just squeezed in so if you have a big Chelsea Tractor you might not get it in. It was perfectly ok once in and nice to be under cover to keep the car cool in summer. To be honest, that's all irrelevant once you've seen the view.

  • "This was our second visit to Seathrift."

    The apartment is still very comfortable and the view is amazing. We always enjoy the coastal path walk to St Ives and the walk in the other direction to Porth Kidney sands and Lelant. The station is very handy for a very quick ride to Penzance. The jigsaw puzzles are a great idea. On one of the extremely wet and windy days we enjoyed working on the St Ives one. Unfortunately there is a missing piece (my husband has left a note in the box). We hope to visit again.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to leave Feedback following your recent holiday at Seathrift and we are so pleased to hear you enjoyed the fabulous views across the Bay from the apartment. Thank you for letting us know about the missing jigsaw piece, we’ll see what we can do about this. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.

  • "Thank you for making our holiday amazing."

    We couldn't have asked for anything more. A beautiful view of Carbis Bay from the comfort of a very clean, well equipped apartment. The only place where we can suggest an improvement is the parking, we have an SUV so the parking space was uncomfortably tight. Althoigh the great rail links and bus network meant we didn't use the car much anyway. A lovely place to stay.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you loved the property and your stay! The parking measurements can be found on our website, to make guests aware of the spaces size prior to booking. Thank you again for your comments and we hope to welcome you back in the future.

    We think that the property should have an iron and ironing board , one was provided for us as we requested , also it would be good to have a full length mirror , maybe one that could be fitted to the inside of the wardrobe door of the main bedroom due to lack of space elsewhere , On a positive note this property was very well decorated with a really comfortable bed and absolutely stunning views and would definitely stay again

    Thank you for you lovely feedback. We can confirm that there is an iron and ironing board in every property with us and the one at Seathrift was left in a visible location as per your request. Thank you for your constructive comments. We are pleased you found everything very comfortable and we hope to welcome you back in the future.

  • "The property was amazing , but i don’t know if you knew but in the room with king size bed the door doesn’t close."

    It really didn’t bother us but I wanted to let you know as I don’t know if anyone else said anything. We loved the games that were left in the cupboard, the rooms had amazing mattresses and the view out of the living room was very good. Breathtaking. Loved the fact that it had a shower and a bath together , since we don’t have a bath in our house it was very nice to take one on the holiday. The property is very close to the beach, and we managed to find another beach with less people and it wasn’t that far away. We would really like to visit back again.

    Thank you for your feedback and top scores! We are delighted to hear you enjoyed the property and its location and views. We hope to see you return soon! Kind Regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "Cornwall is stunning, Carbis Bay is absolutely beautiful, the property is almost perfect."

    Smallest of issues - electric shower pressure is a bit lower than I would like but absolutely fine. The view from the living room is exactly as the pictures show - beautiful. The kitchen is fully equipped and the little extras - books, DVDs, board games, beach equipment is the icing on the cake. The place is clean and tidy. I would thoroughly recommend the property - our kids (4 and 6) absolutely loved their stay here. The hill to walk back up is a bit of a killer, especially with all the beach stuff, but it's manageable - our kids managed to walk up it when required. Alternative is to walk up and drive down to do a pick up. I would definitely stay at Seathrift again.

  • ""Apartment has everything you need."

    Clean and tidy with unbeatable views of the bay and St Ives. It's in a great position, just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of St. Ives, but within walking distance and close to the railway station. Nice welcome pack was much appreciated. It was our fourth holiday at Seathrift and we are already counting down the days to our fifth. :)"

  • ""Seathrift is our favourite apartment to stay at in the Gwel Marten complex."

    The view is amazing but also has the advantage of side windows which make the apartment feel bigger and much brighter. Everything you need is in the apartment including a treasure trove of beach items in the storage cupboard (in which we have left items on previous visits!). We have already booked for next year as we love it so much. Would highly recommend."

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.
