From your Holiday Door

The white sands and clear blue seas of Carbis Bay beach are not to be missed, wander from the house down to the shore and enjoy a lazy lunch in the smart new beachside cafe, bar and restaurant offering tempting local cuisine for all the family. The coastal path, which provides an amazing idyllic route to St Ives and Carbis Bay beach (less than 5 mins) is within easy access or the beautiful branch line train leads you from platform to harbour in just 5 minutes, leave the car behind and spend your day the St Ives way. For further dining options, St Ives brings a welcome choice from handmade pasties to the freshest of seafood, local artisan cafes to Italian pasta eateries.
