About this location

The Cornwall region

Cornwall forms the tip of the south-west peninsula of Great Britain and only has one border; with Devon.

Cornwall is one of the sunniest areas in the UK, with over 1541 hours of sunshine per year. It has its own language, flag and favourite dishes. You almost feel you are in another country!

Places to Visit:

The cliff side open air Minack theatre at Porthcurno. Explore it during the day or enjoy a performance in the evening during the summer months.

St Michaels Mount is a castle topped isle just off the coast at Marazion. Depending on the tide, you could walk out across granite causeway or take the boat at high tide.

Tintagel castle, said to be the birth place of King Arthur, has dramatic cliff top views, fascinating ruins as well as a beach cafe with stunning views; makes for a great day out.

Head to the end of Great Britain by visiting Lands End for spectacular views of the Atlantic ocean.

The Eden project dubbed the 'Eighth Wonder of the World' is a dramatic global garden housed in tropical biomes. Visit a rain forest, desert and enjoy a fun family day out.

St Ives

Spend the day on the beautiful, mile-long sandy beach at Carbis Bay. It is one of Cornwall's finest and lies in a sheltered location. It is a 10 minute walk from the apartment and has a cafe, shop and toilets.

Other beaches include the four beaches in St Ives as well as the fine golden beach at Hayle Sands where you could take a surf lesson, learn to land speed sail or spend the day sunbathing and swimming.

Visit Hayle estuary to enjoy bird watching or walk along the coastal path to enjoy dramatic cliff top scenery.

There is always plenty to do - enjoy a round of golf at the West Cornwall golf club, travel on the scenic railway to St Ives, visit the Tate gallery or head out to sea to spot the Atlantic grey seals and dolphins. Enjoy fishing, sailing, horse riding, cycling and surfing.

"Second-rate 'luxury'"

This is a small, cramped apartment with all the charm of a college dormitory quad. There is no view of Carbis Bay unless you're standing up in the living/dining room or out on the patio; it'… More

We're sorry you didn't have a fantastic time like all our other guests. The apartment is over 90sq m and the floor plan is available on the website to show you the layout.

There is a fabulous view from the balcony. In fact some guests have referred to it as the best balcony in Carbis Bay as you can easily fit 6 people round the outdoor table for some al fresco dining. In addition, there is a shared garden for all the guests to enjoy.

The light bulbs are energy savers and so do take a couple of second to brighten. The manager regularly checks the apartment and has replaced the blown light bulbs.

Parking is a bonus in St Ives/Carbis Bay area and we are happy to offer our guests a dedicated space right outside the front door.

After your visit, we spoke to the cleaner and asked her to check all the cutlery, glasses etc. after each stay in case they need cleaning.

Additionally we are always upgrading our apartment and have recently bought a nesspresso machine for our guests to enjoy. We have bought a new knife set as well as some more le creuset dishes.

In order to ensure that we offer a luxurious stay, we offer dressing gowns and slippers to all our guests to use whilst at the apartment. We also hope you enjoyed the complimentary gift basket and the white company toiletries which all our guests receive.
Thank you

"A beautiful apartment where every luxury and comfort you could want has been catered for."

We rented this apartment last year and were so impressed and had such a lovely time that we are returning there again this year.
The lounge and dining room are really spacious and has every home comfort that you could want. We were lucky enough to have good weather so spend lovely evenings on the large balcony having supper and enjoying the gorgeous view.
This is a very luxious apartment and I have recommended this to many friends as it is a beautiful area and I loved all the little extras like the welcome basket which make it a five star place to stay.
