Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.

First class apartment,fantastic location,we are back next May can't wait .

Oct 2019

Lovely bright, tastefully furnished appartment with excellent space and facilities in top location.

Sep 2019

Fantastic holiday and location. Apartment was clean, modern and had lots of the things we needed for a smooth holiday with 3 small children (including a travel cot and high chair). Fabulous location for walking to the beach (as long as you don’t mind a bit of a hill!) with a super sea view. Short 5 minute journey to the shops and supermarket in a car. Also very near to the train station for quick, picturesque journey to St Ives. Convenient parking space and clear instructions for every aspect of staying in the apartment.

Aug 2019

We had a lovely stay at Carbis Bay despite the showery weather. The apartment was very clean and bright, tastefully decorated and well equipped with lovely views over to the sea.

It is very central and easy to visit the beach below and St Ives. The walks along the coastal paths and views are stunning - it's well worth walking along to Porth Kidney beach in one direction and St Ives in the other.

Some fabulous places to visit are Godrevy, St Ives, Porthcunio, Cape Cornwall, Cot Nanven and Lands' End, Mousehole, Porthleven and Trebah gardens (best in Spring). There is an abundance of art and craft galleries all around the area each showing an eclectic mix of styles. You will be spoilt for choice when looking for somewhere to eat!

I love this part of Cornwall.

Jun 2019

We had another excellent stay at Riviera Apartments . The area is beautiful and we enjoyed lovely walks with our little dog on the beaches at St Ives and Hayle. We were particularly delighted to see large numbers of seals enjoying the surf especially at a small cove near Godrevy Lighthouse.

Dec 2018

Terrific apartment; great views and extremely comfortable. Have re-booked for May 2019, which will be our sixth stay at Oceana. Can't praise it highly enough and aspects are great to deal with.

Oct 2018

4 Riviera Apartments, Oceana is a lovely well appointed property. It is comfortable and modern. The furnishings, beds, bathrooms and kitchen are all high spec. There is plenty of storage and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need for a beach holiday. The position of the apartment is very good in a private area. We found noise from the apartment above at times became tiresome. The sea is five minutes away if you wanted to use the car however parking is tight as the hotel is still building luxury apartments and other buildings. The hill down to the beach we lovingly call 'cardiac hill' can be a challenge and not for the faint hearted; but well worth it as Carbis bay is lovely. One of our family members hired No. 4 the previous year and we had visited them there; we decided to book this apartment as soon as we received a wedding invitation to the Carbis Bay Hotel. Very glad we did.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are glad to hear how much you liked 4 Riviera Apartments, and how much you enjoy visiting Carbis Bay. The parking down at the beach, has been a little tricky recently, as you mention, with the building works taking place at the hotel; it is not too far to walk to the beach from the apartment though, but like you also rightly say, is a bit of a steep slope to contend with on the way back (your nickname for it certainly gave us a giggle here)! Thanks for also letting us know about noise from the apartment upstairs; that isn't something that has been mentioned before, so hopefully it was a one-off, but we will continue to monitor any further feedback on this. Thanks again and hopefully we will see you back here soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Stay at Oceana twice a year and can't praise it highly enough for the quality of accommodation and the spacious rooms, as well as the lovely sea views. Will keep coming back.

Apr 2018

The most wonderful location for a holiday and a very well equipped apartment. Light and airy and a perfect place to holiday. Right by the coastal path for a great walk into st Ives or, going the other way, a long walk to the breathtaking beach of porthkidney sands! I have stayed here five times and wish it could be a sixth but unfortunately dogs will be banned next year. Please reconsider!

Apr 2018

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are glad to hear that you have had another lovely holiday at 4 Riviera. Unfortunately the dog ban is a management company/committee decision that applies to all of the Riviera properties, so individual owners could not overturn the decision. We really are sorry that this means that you will no longer be able to return to a property that you clearly love, but we will be sure to let you know if we hear that this decision gets overturned at any point. Hopefully we will still see you back in Carbis Bay/St Ives; and please do get in contact if we can help you in finding an alternative property for your next holiday. Tanya, Customer Services

The apartment was just perfect in every way

What a brilliant holiday home! Perfect location, very well equipped, couldn't really ask for more. This was my fourth stay in this apartment and it's great that it is well maintained and well decorated. This year there were new curtains and I think a new bathroom. Good that the apartment doesn't just remain the same as it always looks brand new!

The apartment was spacious and our little boy loved that he had extra toys and DVDs to watch . Absolutely loved staying here and would totally book again.

Mar 2016

A great location, perfectly situated for a 40 minute coastal walk into St Ives or a slightly longer coastal walk to the best beach in Cornwall, Porthkidney! This is my third stay in this property and I would definitely return. So goo that it is dog friendly and well kitted out for a week's stay. Thank you!

Beautiful views, spacious modern apartment very close to local amenities with a lovely beach a stones throw away and a short walk to the train station with a 2 minute train journey into the beautiful bay of St Ives, could not ask for a more perfect holiday
