Situated in Carbis Bay, The Boat House features accommodation with a balcony and free WiFi. Located 2.8 km from Porthmeor Beach, the property provides a garden and free private parking. Home away from home feel. Very cosy on a rainy afternoon. Location and parking available.
I'm not really qualified to talk about Carbis Bay itself. I was there to walk the Coastal Path which is above the Bay, but I did go down on to the sands along the way. The area is very beautiful. There were lots of young families there so I suppose it must be a good place for them. One plus is that there is a little railway that runs along the coast between St Ives and St Erth. Ticket offices, short journeys, very convenient and well used by tourists. If you're going to eat out, during the day or at night, best to book in advance. If you're going in a cooler season (I went in October) make sure to take warm clothes as there can be rain and wind.
Carbis Bay was so relaxing and tranquil. It was almost like being in another part of the world. The views were spectacular when walking from our accommodation to the beach. Just so beautiful and peaceful.
Carbis bay is lovely. I would also advise St ives. Lovely fishing harbour. Plenty of places to eat. And some quaint little shops. If you like eating out. We found 3 lovely pubs. The cornish arms in hayle. The blood and bucket in hayle. And the balnoon inn. In st ives. The beach in hayle is beautiful. Its a lovely sandy beach. Overall carbis bay and St ives is well worth a visit.
A beautiful sandy beach , perfect for families with young children as the water is calmer. Toilets are pretty clean. The beach can be accessed from both ends either via some steep narrow steps (tricky with toddlers!) Or via the main road route. There are not many facilities to buy refreshments and the hotel is very expensive (£6 for 2 cans of coke!) So best to come prepared.
Living in London, this part of England truly amazed and inspired us. The landscape is absolutely beautiful even in this rainy May. The golden sand gives the sea water the colour that you wnat to see for that holiday feeling. It is quite so osrt of family oriented holiday. Don't expect clubs or anything like that. St Ives is just around the corner for more dining options. The harbour is lovely. Transport is also good but need to plan ahead.
Beautiful beaches saw lots of seals, you can catch the train to St ives it takes 5 mins or half a hour walk . Plenty of places to eat and drink . I only stayed over night so did not have time to visit museum and galleries. Planning to return
The apartment was extremely clean and perfectly situated for us. The kitchen was great, had everything we needed including a dishwasher and a washer dryer so manged to get all my little boys clothes clean and dry. Beds were very comfortable and had everything we needed for a great family vacation. Steep walk down public footpath straight to carbis bay beach. It took around 10-15 minutes. It definitely got the Hart pumping but lovely walk.
Lovely welcome from the owners who were friendly and easy to talk to. The property was immaculate and my room was gorgeous with a lovely view across the roof tops to the sea. Huge TV and a lovely cosy bed. The breakfast was super tasty and it was a lovely bright conservatory area where I ate. A great place for easy access to Carbis Bay beach, the station and onwards to St Ives.
Super friendly and helpful place. The room was a good size and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent - lots of fresh fruit and a good cooked breakfast. Owners were very accommodating of our early arrival and also storing our bags on after we'd checked out. Beautiful walk to St Ives along the coastal path and Carbis Bay beach is spectacular.
The badger is located less than a 5 minute walk from Lelant train station so is ideal if you want to leave the car when going to Carbis bay or St Ives. There is a very good selection of food and beers and this is quite a busy pub but there was no disturbance caused to the staying guests. The staff are friendly and attentive and the breakfast very good.
Good and quiet location, easy (though steep) walk down to Carbis Bay beach, which is lovely for swimming and has a cafe and restaurants. The location avoids the nightmare traffic of St Ives. The upstairs lounge has fantastic views and is a pleasant space. The managing agents were very helpful sending on an item we left behind.
Location was excellent, set on a hill very near to Carbis Bay beach. St Ives is just a 20 minute walk along the coastal path. The apartment itself was well furnished and decorated, with lovely comfy beds and fluffy towels. The owner was excellent at communication and was quick to answer any questions.
We loved the location midway between Carbis Bay and St Ives, both within easy walking distance. Accommodation was well equipped and clean with comfy beds and well furnished. Wonderful sea views from both accommodation and garden. Car parking a welcome bonus for St Ives.
It was clean, spacious and had excellent facilities. We will be booking again soon. We could see the sea at Carbis Bay from the decking area in the garden, lounge, kitchen and rear bedroom.
Sea view room took in all the beauty of the Carbis Bay. Breakfast excellent. Reception were very courteous on arrival even though it was 22.00.
Owner/Staff very helpful & friendly. Thoroughly recommend the hotel. Very relaxed atmosphere.
