About the property

Apartment in Carbis Bay, Nr. St Ives, Cornwall, England - Peaceful Leafy Location Within Easy Reach Of Beaches, Coastal Walks, Golf, Galleries, Restaurants


This 5* Star Gold rated lovely two bedroom apartment is the perfect place to relax all year round. It's light and airy yet wonderfully cosy. It has two double bedrooms, a wonderful living/dining/kitchen space, bathroom with cream floor to ceiling tiles with bath and luxury rain head shower above, and a perfectly equipped kitchen with all you need for a great holiday. In the warmer months you can open the bi-fold doors from the living area and relax with a glass of chilled wine on the balcony, and in the winter you can turn up the underfloor heating, turn on the 42 inch smart 3d TV in sitting room (or the TVs in either bedroom), make a cappuccino and just unwind. Its location is great as everywhere is walking distance, but there is parking so you can easily explore Cornwall further afield. Carbis Bay beach is approx 5 mins downhill walk. The main road is approx 5 mins uphill. Atmospheric St Ives by foot will take you about 20 mins or a few mins in a car/taxi/local train.

About Claire and Kelly Simpson, Cornish Luxury Holidays

My husband and I fell in love with Cornwall many years ago. We live and work in London and every time we cross the Devon/Cornwall border and see the "Cornwall" sign all the cares of city life just drift away!

We stayed at Sandy Lane as guests and loved it so much that when we saw that one of the apartments was for sale, we just couldn't resist!

We have a 6 year old son and we've all enjoyed some wonderful times here together and we hope that you do too.

Because we live so far away, Kelly (who with her husband actually built and decorated the apartments) and her sister Claire manage bookings for 6 Sandy Lane. They along with our lovely housekeeper, Nikki, manage 6 Sandy Lane for us and for guests.They know the apartment really well and live just a few minutes away, so are always on hand if guests need anything during their stay.

We hope you will love Cornwall and feel as much at home at 6 Sandy Lane as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"It is 30 years since we visited St Ives! We were tempted to stay central but we were so glad we decided to stay in Carbis Bay in this lovely well appointed apartment. Very handy for the beautiful beach and and very handy to reach St Ives by foot, which we did quite alot - our firm calf muscles are testament to this!! We will certainly recommend to all." Guests staying in August 2014

"The was our first visit to St Ives and 6 Sandy Lane has been a perfect base for our stay. We love St Ives but have also fallen for Carbis Bay and the apartment has been the icing on the cake - we're really impressed with the high quality of everything - Its the little things that make a difference. Thank You." Guest staying in Sept 2014

"Stylish, convenient, perfect for our weekend. Would definitely return." Guest staying in Sept 2014

"Sandy Lane 6 is all that the description says it is and more. With stylish furnishings and amenities and the best and newest of appliances, you couldn't ask for a more comfortable environment for an extended stay in the Carbis Bay-St. Ives area." Guest staying in October 2013

"We have returned today from a week in No 6, Sandy Lane and I am missing the luxury already!" Guest staying in October 2013

Super Unterkunft

Eine super Unterkunft. Hat alles geklappt und wir haben uns wie zu Hause gefühlt. Schon die Begrüßung mit Geschenkebox, die Inneneinrichtung waren großartig. Wir haben uns super wohlgefühlt. Jederzeit wieder.

Fabulous flat, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in the last week of March and absolutely loved it. Beautifully furnished throughout with all the mod cons, we could have quite happily stayed in for most of our visit! But it would have been amiss of us to not take advantage of the great location. Two minutes walk to Carbis Bay station which takes a couple of minutes to St Ives or if you fancy a stroll, 20 minutes along the Cornwall coastal path. A visit to the Hepworth museum and Tate St Ives is a must as is lunch and/or dinner at the Porthminster Cafe. I would definitely recommend staying here and hope to stay here again when I am next in Cornwall.

Situated at the southernmost tip of England, Cornwall is a magical holiday destination. White sandy beaches, craggy coves, unspoilt fishing villages and stunning coastal scenery sit wonderfully alongside vibrant galleries, restaurants and world famous visitor attractions. Cornwall is glorious in the warm summer sun, but atmospheric and magical out of season.

Nearby St Ives is full of great restaurants, beaches, cafes, shops and world famous galleries eg Tate St Ives and Barbara Hepworth.
