About this property

With its world class Blue Flag beach, fantastic restaurants and proximity to St Ives, it’s no wonder holidays in Carbis Bay are something rather special. White sands, subtropical surroundings and safe swimming make it a perfect place for both couples and families to enjoy, and with so many fun, water-based activities on offer, days can be as energetic or as laid-back as you fancy.

Set on a quiet street on the outskirts of town, this spacious bungalow is perfectly suited to family holidays on the north Cornish coast, with both Carbis Bay Beach and Porthkidney Sands being just a short distance away. Three double bedrooms provide ample space for 6 guests with one of the rooms being self-contained with its own bathroom and entrance (ideal for guests who like a bit more privacy). A large sitting room and bright conservatory mean there’s plenty of room for all to unwind in with attractive furnishings creating a welcoming atmosphere. The established private garden to the back of the house is just the place for relaxation and guests will be able to enjoy outdoor dining or entertaining in the sunshine. With its range of appliances, cookware and utensils, whisking up freshly prepared meals in the home’s big kitchen is a breeze, and guests can gather around the dining table for mealtimes together before challenging each other to a game of cards or a board game.

Being so closely positioned to the towns of Hayle and St Ives means there’s plenty to see and do in the area, with the beauty being that both can be reached either on foot or via a short train trip on the scenic St Erth line. The town’s award-winning C Spa with its wonderful pool, incredible sea views and on-site facilities is open to the public, so for visitors looking to treat themselves to a touch of indulgence there’s no better place for it.
