Clearwater is a luxury, first floor, spacious seaside holiday apartment with so much to offer. The unrivalled views from the large, open plan living area will simply take your breath away, and it's the perfect place to spot dolphins when they make a visit. You also have the benefit of a private parking space to come and go as you please, totally stress-free. Both bedrooms are of a good size and one offers zip and link beds, which can make either twins to cater for families, or a super king-size for couples sharing - fitting four adults comfortably. The apartment has been lovingly furnished and will make a great base for a holiday to remember!

Gwel Marten Apartments sit in an enviable position perched on Headland Road, the final road before making the final descent to Carbis Bay's Blue Flag accredited beach. With commanding, 180 degree views across Carbis Bay beach to St Ives in one direction and Godrevy Lighthouse and Hayle Towans in the other, from Gwel Marten you can take in everything from the comfort and tranquility of your own sitting room. Gwel Marten is also privileged to have direct access to the South West Coast Path via the apartments' beautiful and expansive communal garden, along which magnificent scenery accompanies you in either direction. Head right, passed Hawkes Point to Porthkidney Beach, or turn left and in half an hour be right in the heart of St Ives. Or, to make life that little bit easier, why not use the picturesque branch line instead? You'll find Carbis Bay's train station just around the corner in which St Ives can be reached within four minutes!

The view from the property is breathtaking. The property is comfortable and spacious and has everything you could need.

The location is great. It is easy to walk to Carbis Bay Beach which has lovely shallow, sandy waters for paddling, body boarding. Great for kids. We spotted a seal when kayaking and doing stand up paddle boarding - good value to hire the equipment on the beach. And so simple to walk to St Ives or catch the train.

We would love to stay here again.

Clearwater is an excellent property with what has to be one of the best coastal views in Britain. It has great access to the little railway line into St Ives (three minutes walk) and right next to the path for coastal walking and it takes just a few minutes to walk to the stunning beach. The apartment is in excellent condition having everything you could wish for. Perfect!

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.

January 2018

Comfortable, warm, quiet and with the most perfect view of Carbis Bay and St Ives harbour - not forgetting our perfect view, in comfort, of the St Ives New Year's Day fireworks! We liked the way the seating area, hallway and bedrooms had matching carpets, with the kitchen and dining room having quality bright wood-block flooring. This we feel added to the relaxed atmosphere and comfort of the apartment. We also appreciated the superb flat screen televisions in both bedrooms and lounge area having hd tv and Netflix. Thank you also for the welcome pack - it was much appreciated after a long journey.
