About the property

2 bedroom + lounge kitchen diner. Views across St Ives Bay - Cliff-top Location, 10 Minutes Walk To A Blue Flag Beach

A compact ground-floor apartment in an idyllic location, with sea-views and dedicated parking, 18 Kelwyn Court is ideal for 'couple' or family use, with a shared garden area and easy access to a 'safe' Beach (10 minutes walk), supermarket and local bus routes. Please note, this is a Friday to Friday let (to enable cleaning)

The main living space is a Lounge/Diner with Kitchen area at one end, and windows which face out over St Ives Bay. Seating and dining space for up to 6 people is available. A Bathroom separates two Bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with bunk beds (suitable for 2 children or possibly 2 adults) and a folding bed. A digital television has 'Freeserve' and a player for the selection of DVD's and videos. For your enjoyment there is a collection of games, puzzles and books. Information about Cornwall and the local area includes books, up-to-date brochures and a set of Ordnance Survey maps, to help you plan your stay. The Kitchen area is well equipped and conveniently arranged. 18 Kelwyn Court is situated close to (but not on) the St Ives Road, with bus routes leading to Penzance, Truro and the Lands End Peninsula. A Supermarket is within 5 minutes walk, and a range of Restaurants can be found in Carbis Bay. A Footpath leads downhill to Carbis Bay Beach (awarded a Blue Flag in 2013) and a coastal path follows the back of the beach offering a picturesque walking route to St Ives. The Carbis Bay train station allows you to use the attractive scenic branch line which links Lelant with St Ives, and the main line at St Erth.

About Nicholas Langham

Hi. My name is Nick, and my wife and I own 18 Kelwyn Court. We are currently enjoying retirement and live in Winchester. We have had a long relationship with Cornwall and the South West (my wife is Cornish) and we have made many visits over the years. We regard it as a second home.

Nicholas Langham purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Nicholas Langham chose Carbis Bay

We purchased this apartment some 10 years ago and use it as a holiday home. It has been a useful base to allow us to visit the whole County at different times, as well as meeting with relations. We love our occasional trips to this area. Its famous scenery is superb and we enjoy seeing the sea in all its moods. The history of the County adds a further layer of interest to investigate. Footpaths can take us to remote areas and there's nothing like a good dose of invigorating fresh air. Our sons and families take full advantage of sun, surf and beach activities.

What makes this apartment unique

* Well equipped home-from-home * Closeness to A30 * Parking space * Good access to local amenities * Walking distance to the Beach and Coast Path * Bus routes which facilitate walking expeditions * Many walking routes to take * Hidden gems to discover and explore

A beautiful place to stay.

Apartment clean and comfortable. No complaints at all. A good base to see Cornwall. Advice. Stay away from Lands End. Over commercialised.

Excellent Apartment

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay here and would recommend it highly.

Clean, bright, comfy, and very well stocked apartment with loads of local information to hand.

Very handy for beach and stunning coastal walks- also very close to local railway service to St Ives.

Quiet location off the main road ensured we all slept well.

We would definitely come back if we visit the area again.

My only issue which was a bit of a pain was having to pay for internet access when I thought there was free Wi-Fi but the positives of the apartment far outweighed this.

Many thanks

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We had a really good time in a beautiful place... The flat had everything we needed & was very homely.

It was impeccably clean, & well equipped.. Our first time in Carbis Bay - it was great. It's true what they say about the quality of light over there. So hopefully we'll be back.

Special interest holidays:

St Ives has a Leisure Centre with pool and gym

Carbis Bay Hotel has a new 'Spa' Facility

Local Horse Riding with beautiful NT treks across the moors.

St Ives is a quintessential seaside town-cum-port with golden sands, and unusual light that has always attracted groups of Artists. It also boasts the Tate Modern Art Gallery, Barbara Hepworth Museum and the Bernard Leach Pottery and Museum.


10 mins walk to Carbis Bay Beach is down Valley Rd and a footpath. It is a safe beach, has lifeguard support, as well as shop, cafe, restaurant and toilets.

St Ives (2 miles) has 4 beaches, one of which (Porthmeor) is for surfing.

Gwithian and Godrevy beaches on the other side of the Bay are within 5 miles and are ideal for beach sports, rock pools and surfing etc.

The South West Coast Path gives access to many remote parts of the cliffs and bays where you can commune with nature!


Newquay Airport is 30 miles distant

Penzance(8 miles) is the main terminus for SW Trains from Paddington, although a stop at St Erth and then the branch line to St Ives can drop you off at Carbis Bay itself. Taxis are available at St Erth Station.

Bus routes from St Ives to Penzance and Truro pass by Kelwyn Court.

Cars are our main recommendation for your travel to and from, however


Within a radius of 25 miles you will find a great variety of attractions to suit all tastes. Beaches and delightful coastal villages abound. From Mousehole to Mullion, ...from Newlyn to Newquay. National Trust properties, Gardens and Art Galleries are all nearby. Porthcurnow Telegraph Museum and Falmouth Maritime Museum are two major attractions. Why not take in a performance at Minack Open Air Theatre, perched on the cliffs above Porthcurnow?

For children try Flambards Adventure Park, Helston.

Locally in Carbis Bay there is a supermarket, convenience store, post office, take-away food (including a Fish and Chip Restaurant favoured by local people), restaurants of all types and cash machine. Most main banks are in St Ives, along with a doctor's surgery and dental practice.
