Carbis Bay Area Cottages

Located on the outskirts of St Ives, Carbis Bay is its quieter, equally beautiful neighbour that is home to one of the world’s best beaches. Our holiday cottages in Carbis Bay are some of our best coastal homes in Cornwall, and cater to a range of tastes and needs. With many coming with framed sea views, dog-friendly and family-friendly facilities and a range of luxury amenities to make your trip extra special, our Carbis Bay cottages really do have something for everyone. 

Carbis Bay beach is a blue flag beach whose sandy shores are a truly breath-taking sight. The bay is a privately owned, blue flag beach which is around a mile long and is part of an array of beaches that make up St Ives Bay, listed as one of the world’s best by the Most Beautiful Bays in the World Organisation. The beach at Carbis Bay is surrounded by sub-tropical plants and lapped by turquoise waters which just might just have you thinking you were somewhere much further south. The beach has little surf and is sheltered from the wind, so perfect for those with young children or who enjoy swimming, while activities such as kayaking and stand up paddleboarding are also on offer.  

Carbis Bay is situated between St Ives and Hayle and is also on the South West Coast Path, making it a great spot for some enjoyable seaside walks. Carbis Bay is just two miles from St Ives along the coast path, which makes for a lovely day, but it is also accessible from the branch line from St Erth (a few minutes from St Ives), and by car, though parking is limited. Once you reach St Ives, you’ll be spoilt for things to do, places to eat and pubs to drink in, but if there’s one thing you should try and find time to do, it’s visit the Tate St Ives. The art gallery has been an integral part of St Ives life since it opened in 1993 and it has a range of constantly changing pieces and special exhibitions, as well as lots of family-friendly activities throughout the year and a lovely rooftop cafe.  

A truly lovely place and in a great location from which to explore West Cornwall, Carbis Bay is the perfect holiday destination.
