It was our first time staying at carbis bay, aspects accommodation. Such a beautiful accessible accommodation. The view was so beautiful overlooking the sea. The bed was extremely comfortable, so we slept brilliantly. The provisions provided were an extremely pleasant surprise to us eg hand wash, shampoo, conditioner, fabric softener, dishwasher tablets etc. Furthermore providing us with tea, coffee, tea towels. We loved being provided with bath & hand towels, they were brilliantly white & clean. It was so very kind to receive a goodie bag at reception. This touched us, thank you so kindly. Very happy ??

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!

We really enjoyed staying here; the apartment is very comfortable with everything you need. It is ideally located, just a short walk for the train into St Ives. It was lovely to be able to see the sea from the living room even on a blustery day. We will definitely stay here again.

Lovely position, clean and comfortable. Well equipped and so nice to have little toiletries left in bathroom and a welcome pack of milk, tea, coffee, hot chocolate sachets, biscuits and even some local chocolate buttons. We were also given a £5 voucher for a deli in St. Ives so bought some cheese. Thank you so much, excellent holiday.

The apartment is lovely - well maintained & very clean. Very well equipped with everything you need. Beautiful view of the sea from the patio & parking space as close to the apartment as was possible. Walk down to the beach is a challenge for the unfit or elderly but well worth it when you there.

Cosy with lovely views of The sea and st Ives. Property is well equiped and had all that you need for comfort.

Absolutely loved staying here, perfect location and beautiful views!

Lovely property with fantastic views, train station on the doorstep, lovely woodland walk down to the beach and back, just loved it, will be back soon!

We had a fantastic weeklong stay in this accommodation. The location is great, just a couple of minutes walk to the local train station .We hardly used our car all week. The apartment is quite spacious. Our family (5 adults) found it very comfortable and it has great facilities including a dishwasher & coffee machine. It appears that both bathrooms have been recently refurbished & to a high standard. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have rebooked for next year already!!

Great second stay at Compass Point. Great views and great facilities. Especially useful to have two bathrooms the walk in shower was really good. Also love the fact there is a Tassimo coffee machine so make sure you bring your pods. Good views of the sea from outside.

Excellent Perfect in every way

It Was a lovely place, fab location and amazing beaches and places to eat. Managed to find great places doing gluten free too which is essential to us. A great time had even in January when expect the weather to be not so great but it was fine. Thank you. :-)

Our stay was amazing & the apartment was very clean & lovely

Magnificent location and a beautifully equipped appartment.

The property is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. A welcome pack of milk, tea, coffee and biscuits provided. Perfect location with wonderful views. When sitting out on terrace view obscured by height of wall, but this is reflected in photographs of property. Train station is just around the corner for easy access to St Ives. Advise booking restaurants in advance. Walk down to beach very steep and not suitable for those with walking difficulties. Late arrival and early departure times given for extra cleaning due to Covid. No evidence that any extra care had been taken. Apart from this one niggle couldn’t fault it.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are glad that you liked it here. We would always expect the standard of cleaning to be carried out to a high standard, covid or no covid. The extra time during changeover, was to allow for many other factors that we had to bear in mind, including additional restrictions and smaller housekeeping teams due to the number of people self-isolating. We hope that the level of cleanliness was still to the high standard that you would expect. Please rest assured that had it not been, and we are informed, we would do absolutely everything possible to rectify any concerns, as we would always want your chosen property to be perfect for you. We hope that you had a fantastic time and hopefully we will see you back here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Lovely apartment with an amazing view! Ideally located for Carbis Bay beach and the train station to St Ives. Very relaxing, the apartment had everything you required. I enjoyed sitting outside having breakfast, I would definitely recommend.

Perfect for us. Good size great views. Ideal layout. Couldn’t ask for a better holiday home in Carbis Bay.

Love apartment well looked after everything you need for a super holiday brilliant

This is a beautiful apartment in a great location close to the railway station but still very quiet. Lovely views over Carbis Bay. Well furnished and very clean. Parking space right outside the apartment. Would definitely stay here again.

Well maintained apartment with a great view over Carbis Bay and St Ives. Easy parking and a few yards to Carbis Bay station which saves the trouble of trying to park in St Ives.

Super location, charming friendly staff at reception, comfortable night’s sleep, beautiful views and peaceful. Good value for money and will use Aspects again in future.

The apartment was lovely, the views were not like I expected the wall in the front was too high to see over it.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your review. We were so pleased that you liked the apartment, and we hope that you had a fantastic holiday. We try to show the wall as clearly as we can within the photos, so that guests will know what to expect at the time of booking. If you are standing inside, or are enjoying the outside area, you get a lovely sea view, but this is restricted when sat down inside the property, so we are sorry if this was not what you were expecting. If you are ever returning and wanted advise on alternatives, where you can sit with a sea view, please do get in touch so that we can assist. We do hope to welcome you back again to Cornwall again soon. Ben, Customer Services.

This was an awesome holiday! Beautiful apartment in a stunning position overlooking the postcard perfect Carbis bay. It really is stunning! & in my opinion is just as beautiful as beaches overseas, if not better! The Cornish atmosphere is always special & never disappoints, it truly is a magical place. The apartment was beautiful, clean & tidy & plenty of space for an adult & 5 children (1 in a cot!) & even the highchair matched the dining table & chairs! The decor & pictures were lovely! I had read about the steep walk up from the beach & was anxious but it really is a very small price to pay at such a beautiful location (saying that lightly as after months of lockdown im feeling unfit) but the walk can only do more good than harm! As much as 1 may feel approaching the top of the hill that 1 is in agony, but as they say 'no pain no gain'! & it's exciting trying to get to the top in time to see the scenic train as it goes back & forth St. Ives every few mins. The coastal walk however is also beautiful to St. Ives with stunning views. Our first time at St. Ives & it really is as beautiful as expected, a real gem! Aspects kindly gave us a £5 voucher to spend at the Allotment Deli & i recommend the Honeycomb chocolate bars! Overall, this holiday was awesome & I promise you won't be disappointed!

You wil not find a better apartment it has everything you would want for a great holiday.Ultra clean and spotless inside and in a quiet location and is good for the beach and the train inti st.ives

Compass point ,perfect place to stay ,very close to beach especially if you have small children,also train station again right on your door step ,would i stay again there ,yes I certainly would .

This is a really comfortable flat. When we stayed it was really quiet and peaceful and the view is great. The train is literally 2 min stroll away to get to St Ives etc if you don't want to walk (or walk back!), it runs regularly but it doesn't disturb you when you are in the flat as it is set down the hill. This is a really good base to visit this part of Cornwall, and we would stay here again. There are not loads of restaurants etc in Carbis Bay but St Ives is so close it doesn't matter, in fact we liked it better that way. Also having a parking space right in front of the flat was great and the tea, coffee and milk left at the flat when we arrived we're a welcome sight after a long drive down.

Great family accommodation. We travelled with my 10 year old son and my elderly mum. The three bedroom property was spacious, clean and had great sea views. Car-parking was directly in front of the property down some steps. Carbis bay beach was a short 10 minutes walk down ( slightly longer back as up a steep hill) and was perfect for then evening with an energetic 10 year old. The property standard is excellent and would stay again.

We would definitely recommend 26 Compass Point. It is in a great location which has stunning views of Carbis Bay & the surrounding bays. It is only a 2 minute walk to the railway station to take the short train ride into St Ives. The apartment is first class with all of the home comforts you could need & is spotlessly clean. I would stay here again if i was ever to holiday again in Cornwall.

Good as a base to explore Cornwall

A beautifully appointed apartment in the perfect location, next to the railway station and 5 minutes from the beach via a little woodland footpath; boasting sea views and benefitting from a good sized sunny private outdoor terrace. The allocated parking space is directly outside which makes loading and offloading hassle free. The development is clean, tidy and spacious, with little noise. A perfect getaway!!
