About this location

The Cornwall region

Cornwall is one of the most fascinating and scenically

stunning counties in the UK and is an ideal location for a family holiday.

It has some really beautiful beaches – from the majestic north coast

beaches with their golden sands and Atlantic rollers, to the quiet coves

of the south coast. But there's plenty to see and do too, from the world

famous Eden project to Lands End, from Tintagel Castle to the Seal Sanctuary.

There are some fabulous restaurants such as Rick Stein's Seafood restaurant

in Padstow and a wealth of art galleries such as the Tate gallery in

St Ives. scores of Neolithic sites and ancient monuments are testament to its long history, and the many tin mine works a reminder of its industrial heritage.

St Ives


A picturesque town ringed by glorious beaches and a beautiful harbour. An amazing variety of shops amongst narrow cobbled streets will appeal to some, while others will enjoy its close proximity to coast paths and the wild Cornish country-side. Porthmeor, its largest beach, is a prime surfing venue and has won awards for cleanliness. Overlooking the beach is the Tate Gallery, one of scores of galleries around town, a testament to its renowned artistic community. Carrack Dhu is a minutes walk from the Barbara Hepworth sculpture gardens, and only three minutes from the Tate and Porthmeor beach. Other local attractions include ancient Pagan monuments, St.Michaels Mount, Lands End, Seal Sanctuary, or further afield, the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Activities you can busy yourself with are surfing, diving, kite flying, or get out and about on a mountain bike. The evenings can be filled visiting restaurants, pubs or night-clubs if you are so inclined. We also have a vibrant live music scene. St.Ives has many quality restaurants and cafes (many can provide vegan / vegetarian food). All corners of town are within easy (but often hilly!) walking distance of Carrack Dhu.
