Holidays in Carbis Bay

If you’re looking for a holiday away from the hustle and bustle of St Ives, then consider Carbis Bay, offering a quieter location for guests. Enjoy outstanding views, relaxing on the golden sandy beach and walking the coastal path, which is perhaps the most beautiful stretch in the county.

Choose a holiday in Carbis Bay and you’ll be spoilt by endless views and a sweeping coastline. Spend your days relaxing on the beach, or walk the coastal path into St Ives. Located between Hayle and St Ives, you’ll be spoilt for places to visit, from endless golden beaches, to Cornish cafes and family attractions.

Top tip

Take a ride on the St Ives branch line, one the most picturesque train journeys in Britain!

Carbis Bay beach

A holiday in Carbis Bay means you’ll have one of the most beautiful beaches just a short walk away from your holiday cottage. With crystal-clear turquoise waters, enjoy swimming and other watersports, with kayaks and paddleboards available to hire from the watersports centre at the beach. You’ll also be in close proximity to the golden sandy beaches at Lelant and Hayle and the popular beaches in St Ives; you could try a different beach every day of the week!

Walks in Carbis Bay

Leave the car at home and take the 20 minute walk into St Ives, enjoying the views along the way. This gentle walk is a must at least once during your stay.

For nature lovers, the Steeple Woods Nature Reserve is home to an abundance of wildlife and plants. Relax and explore the forty acre space which overlooks St Ives.

For the more adventurous soul, the St Michael’s Way is a 12.5 mile trek starting at nearby Lelant, and finishing up at the stunning St Michael’s Mount in Marazion. If the walk back doesn’t seem too appealing, you can always ride the open-top bus all the way back!

Lovely spacious accommodation in perfect location

Absolutely fantastic already booked for may and september next year. The bed is so comfy. Fantanstic views brilliant location. Fantastic service. Thank you aspects.

During our stay we had the road and bridge right outside the apartment resurfaced throughout the night. It was the most horrendous noise/sight from 7pm until 5am resulting in only a couple of hours sleep for us all on two nights . The other two we still had flashing lights and heavy machinery all night but thankfully not digging. We actually paid for 6 and stayed 5 (because we’d had enough ) and did get two nights accommodation refunded. However the whole holiday was a complete waste of money as we were all that tired we didn’t do anything after losing two night’s sleep. I don’t know who is to blame ,as I’ve contacted Cormac who said they’d contacted owners/rental companies to let them know of the works going on, but this apartment should never have been rented out that week. It’s on the edge of a 4 way traffic junction from the railway,the bridge,Porthrepta and Boskerris road. So the road was shut from our apartment and any waiting traffic,reversing,turning around all happened right outside us from 7pm-5am for the 4 nights we were there. The workmen moving the cones all through the night,you name it we had it! I’ve used Aspects for a number of years and I feel really let down that this was supposed to be a holiday but was actually hell. We most certainly would not have come down had we being given the full information and knowing the severity and what impact it would have on our holiday.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were very sorry to hear that your stay had been impacted to this extent. As the team had explained at the time, the council had been responsible for the works to the road. Unfortunately, roadworks can pop up at any time, in any town and we had no control over this, or earlier warning. The council may have posted a letter to the apartment, but as the owners do not live in the property and everyone had been in lockdown, there was no opportunity for anyone to visit and find this information. We came across it on social media, by chance, and got in contact with the council for more information, which was unfortunately still very generalised. They could not tell us what sections of road that they would be specifically working on each night or how noisy it would be and so with the limited information that we had, we contacted guests straight away with that. We appreciate that only getting that information within 2 days of your arrival was far from ideal, but we would like to reassure any guest that was impacted by noise from these works, that we done everything that we could to inform guests as soon as we had the information. And whilst this was something that ourselves and the owner of the property had absolutely no control over, we appreciate that a good night's sleep is very important and that this would not have provided the relaxing, stress-free experience that you would want from a holiday, so a pro-rata refund of the nights affected by this work was arranged for you straight away, with the owner's permission. We are disappointed that after so many years of booking through us and many very positive experiences of our service and properties, this situation has left you feeling let down by our service. We do hope that we will be able to welcome you back in the future and restore your faith in our company. Tanya, Customer Services

2 Atlantic Watch was wonderful for a short holiday and we’ll consider it for future trips to the cost. The apartment was very comfortable and nicely decorated, and the location is great with easy car access, and you can't get much closer to the beach. We had everything we needed and everything was tidy.

The property we stayed at, 2 Atlantic Watch, was positioned in a great location, close to the station and about 30 minutes walk, on the coastal path, into St Ives. It is a little tired and in need of a deep clean. Aspects as a company have been extremely professional and helpful when I had questions, prior to our stay and supportive during our stay.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your review! We were pleased to see that you enjoyed the fantastic location of the property and that you made use of the coast path to St Ives, it is such a great way to take in the amazing views across the bay. We were sorry to see that you found the property to be a little tired and needing a deep clean, thankfully after a strange year, properties were really well booked from July, but this can result in additional wear when a property is in constant use, but pleased rest assured that feedback is always taken on board. Thank you for your kind words about Aspects as a company, it has been a challenging year and we have been doing our best to ensure that as much support was given before, during and after people's stays, so it is really appreciated. We hope that we will see you again soon! Ben, Customer Services

Convenient location for beach and train to St Ives. Lovely view from sitting room and master bedroom. We would stay here again as long as the building work next door is fully completed.

The property is very comfortable and well equipped with excellent ocean views. The railway is a short walk away for popping into St Ives. The car park space is for 2 cars so it is easy for 1 to park right next the property.

Paying premium for position of apartment and outlook but needs updating and damp looking at as there seems to be a damp smell downstairs , need to address little details

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are sorry to hear that you found that areas needed updating and that you experienced a damp smell. The coffee machine has now been replaced, batteries replaced in the clock, and lightbulbs replaced; thank you for letting us know about these. We will also be undertaking a thorough inspection of the property to see if there are any other areas that need attention, and investigate your comment on a damp smell, as this is not something that we have ever seen or had reported at this property before. We will report any areas that need addressing, to the property owner. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the great location and lovely views that you get from this property. Thanks again for your feedback. Tanya, Customer Services

Very comfortable, well equipped property in an ideal location and with a stunning sea view. Can't wait to hopefully go back there again sometime.

Amazing location for Carbis Bay beach and station. Lounge and main bedroom have stunning views. Easy drive to lots of beautiful beaches nearby at Hayle and Gwithian Towans. Property is equipped with all the basics but in our opinion the interior is in need of some TLC, this is probably reflected in the price. Also be aware that the car parking space is quite tight for 2 cars.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments, and we are very sorry to hear that you had felt that there were some areas needing a bit of attention. 2 Atlantic Watch had met all required standards, with any necessary/routine maintenance being carried out as expected when we had last inspected this property, and had been priced accordingly; however, a lot can happen to a property in a short space of time, so thank you for bringing this to our attention so that we pass the feedback on to the property owners. It sounds like you still had a fantastic time here and we're glad that you liked the great location. Thanks again for your feedback. Tanya, Customer Services

Absolutely stunning views from this property. The property was very well equipped, clean and we had a very comfortable stay here. Would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of staying here.

The appartment at 2 Atlantic Watch was fabulous. Everything was of a high quality and helped make our holiday great. The location was wonderful, with fantastic views and such easy access to the train service for St Ives. We hope to return in the future.

Fantastic location. Wonderful views from the balcony and great to be within walking distance of the station with regular trains into St Ives.

Great views but a little expensive.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are glad to hear you enjoyed the fantastic views but sorry that you felt it a little expensive. St Ives and Carbis Bay is a more expensive area to rent in, compared to other areas but we try to ensure that properties are priced competitively and accordingly, taking into account many factors including location, views, availability of parking, number of bedrooms, décor and so on, and we try to provide a wide range of properties that will cater for a variety of tastes and budgets. We do hope that you found that it suited your needs and thank you for taking the time to send in your comments. Tanya, Customer Service

Parking can be difficult particularly when the car park fills up with contractors vans

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are really sorry to hear that you may have had some difficulties with the parking there. This property comes with allocated parking for 2 cars which should not be used by anyone other than those staying in 2 Atlantic Watch, so we are sorry if others had been parking inconsiderately while you were there. It is not the norm for there to be a load of contractor vans in the car park, and we had not been made aware that there would be, so we can only apologise if there had been works taking place in another property that may have led to this. We would hope that this was a bit of a one-off, but we will keep a close eye on this. Thanks for letting us know. We hope that you still had a great time. Tanya, Customer Services

Property is well sited, with easy car access and two allocated parking places ( would be tight if you have two large cars and other places taken). Regular bus service along the main road, 8 minutes walk away. And train station directly across the road ( railway not noisy from inside the property!). During our stay we used car bus and train depending on our itinerary, including train into St Ives most evenings! Property is comfortable and has an amazing view over the bay. Parts are a little tired and need revamping, but perhaps that is us being over picky. Although it has two bedrooms, there was only the two of us. The spare bedroom meant we had ample storage space / dressing space! All things considered, we would stay again.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your helpful comments; we are glad that you had a great holiday and that this is somewhere that you would return to. We have since had a look at the parking and to try and to help make the parking arrangements as clear and possible and prevent any issues for any guests on arrival to the property; we have now amended the website description to state that the space is suitable for 2 small to medium cars. We are sorry if you had found it a bit of a struggle but we are glad that the property still worked well for you. We hope to see back here again soon. Tanya, customer Services

We had the most amazing holiday in 2.Atlantic Watch,Carbis Bay.The accommodation was immaculately clean,fully equipped with everything we needed,the beds were extremely comfortable,the shower & bathroom were great,the views from the balcony & lounge were fantastic & the location of the apartment was brilliant for walking/catching the train to St Ives as well as not being too far from other places which we visited,including Marazion,Mousehole & Porthcurno. I felt that your staff were extremely friendly & helpful & that the communication regarding our booking was very good.We would 100% book our holiday with Aspects next time we visit Cornwall & we will be recommending you to friends & family wishing to stay there. I wanted to say a big thank you to all your staff for making our holiday the best ever.We loved every minute in Cornwall & in Atlantic watch.We even had fresh flowers,cookies & prosecco left for us when we arrived which was a lovely surprise!
