House in St Ives, Cornwall, England - Terraced Garden, Parking, Fab Sea Views

The views from this fabulously furnished, modern, detached house are wonderful. Set in a residential area of Carbis Bay, Chy An Mor, within easy walking distance of St. Ives and the golden sands of Carbis Bay. Short steep drive leads up to the house, with steps up to the entrance, and as soon as you cross the threshold, you know that the contemporary styled home-from-home will be a sumptuous retreat. 2 bedrooms are on the ground floor. The sitting room is furnished with a modern corner suite to ensure the utmost comfort and encompasses a large window, with views stretching past Godrevy Lighthouse, up towards Padstow.

Great holiday in fabulous accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accomodation and a lovely welcome with homemade bread and cake!! The new decking to the front with great views of the bay really added to the experience.... we were lucky with the weather so made full use of it!

Only downside was the internet connection was very slow... not a problem when the weather is great but children who are attached to ipads etc may get a little frustrated on a rainy day.

St Ives is lovely but we also tried out surfing and kayaking in nearby locations... brilliant fun!

Would definitely return.

The usually calm sea conditions and sheltered aspect ensure very safe bathing. The coastal path and beach are moments from Chy An Mor.
