Sea Blue, Gwel Marten Carbis Bay

 
 
£438 - £1168
Book

Sea Blue is a spacious and comfortable ground floor apartment where access is gained via a private courtyard. It has direct access to the patio and gardens; a feature incorporated into the stunning bay window with panoramic views. Another advantage comes from being at the end of the terrace; you can sit outside in your own corner of the garden and watch the sun go down over Porthminster Point. Then when the air cools a bit, just move a few steps back into the sitting room and still enjoy exactly the same panorama. Whatever the season, you will not be disappointed.

Gwel Marten Apartments sit in an enviable position perched on Headland Road, the last road before making the final descent to Carbis Bay's Blue Flag accredited beach with commanding views across Carbis Bay beach to St Ives. From Gwel Marten you can take in everything from the comfort and tranquility of your own sitting room. Gwel Marten has direct access to the South West Coast Path via the apartments' communal garden. Head right, past Hawkes Point to Porthkidney Beach, or turn left and in half an hour be right in the heart of St Ives. Or, why not use the picturesque branch line instead? You'll find Carbis Bay's train station just around the corner via which St Ives can be reached within four minutes!

Mr Terry

Fantastic location, in what is probably (in my opinion) the best beach in the Far West of Cornwall. It's great to be able to walk 2 mins to the train station and be in St Ives within 3 mins. A true gem in the Cornish Riviera! :)

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.
