Carbis Bay sits just north of beautiful St Ives on the west coast of Cornwall. Your Carbis Bay holiday home provides the perfect point from which to explore this pretty area.

For guests that like to eat out, Carbis Bay has plenty to choose from. A couple of suggestions are The Cornish Arms, a charming pub serving traditional pub food in a welcoming atmosphere. There is also The Bean Cafe for daytime food serving simple well cooked light bites, nibbles and drinks and catering for a range of dietary needs.

If you enjoy cooking at home in your self-catering cottage then you will be spoilt for choice at the local market for fresh locally sourced ingredients. Visit the St Ives Farmers Market, held weekly during the summer.

Carbis Bay is a stunning sandy beach, holds a coveted Blue Flag 2019 award (one of seven in the county) and is ideally suited to families. The Ocean Sports Centre provides lessons in surfing, paddleboarding, kayaking and the upcoming trend of foiling.

If you are looking for an alternative beach, then Porthkidney is also a good choice, with its vast sandy landscape. After a long day at the beach though, it’s always nice to retreat back to your cottage to relax and rejuvenate.

Not far from Carbis Bay is Lelant, a small quaint village steeped in charm that offers beautiful views back over the Hayle Estuary. It is also just a short drive to St Ives too, with its quaint cobbled streets filled with independent shops, galleries and cafes. The Tate St Ives is one of only four Tate galleries in the UK and St Ives is renowned for its light that has inspired artists for generations.

After a holiday at Carbis Bay, you will be sad to leave your holiday home and will be booking your next accommodation as soon as you are home.
