September 2019

Whilst regular visitors to West Cornwall this was our first stay in Carbis Bay. Sea Fever are apartment blocks easily located off the main road leading into St Ives. The apartment has its own outside nominated parking space within a decent sized car park which is easy to access. 8 Riviera is situated down a couple of flights of steps from the car park and then up to the first floor. A very bright apartment with magnificent sea views from the kitchen (towards St. Ives) and The Towans and Godrevy Lighthouse from the lounge. Well equipped on arrival with all the normal things like TV, DVD, radio etc. Cosy and practical kitchen. Two decent sized bedrooms with main one having en suite facilities. Small balcony with furniture can be accessed from either the lounge or kitchen. Outside cupboard (next to front door) had supply of windbreak, beach mats etc. which was unexpected and most welcome.

Aspect's directions were spot on and we had no problem finding the apartment. Just a short stroll down to Carbis Bay itself from the apartments. There is also a lovely walk along the cliff-top through to St. Ives. Takes about 20 minutes depending how you walk the ups and downs of the path! The route takes you past the Carbis Bay hotel with its' own cafe and amenities on the beach and you can stop for a quick coffee on the way! Coming back can be the same route or we took the scenic train ride one stop back to Carbis Bay from St. Ives which was a real treat with the sea views this offers. Very cheap as well. Don't forget to ask for a group save if there are three adults or more as this knocks a third off the off peak price and so much cheaper than parking and the hassle that goes with it.

A short walk up to and along the main road takes you to a well stocked Costcutter and there is a decent sized Tesco about a mile down the road. Heading towards Lelant there is Beck's Fish & Chip shop and restaurant - really nice food and good sized portions.

We were a party of three adults staying a fortnight and had a great holiday. A real wrench to come home!

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.

The apartment was lovely and spacious, had a well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and wonderful sea views - highly recommended!

Jun 2019

A beautiful apartment,spotlessly clean & very comfortable. The area is easy to explore using the train from Carbis Bay or park at St Erth to enjoy rides on the beautiful branchline. Expect hills as Carbis Bay is built on a steep hillside but the views from this apartment are tremendous So much to explore for all ages & all close by.

Apr 2019

This is our third stay at Sea Fever which speaks volumes - very well equipped apartment with sea views, a fabulous safe sandy beach with turquoise waters just down the hill and the scenic railway just yards away for easy travel into nearby St Ives which is also accessible by foot - all in all a perfect location for a very relaxed holiday. Would highly recommend and will definitely go back for a fourth visit!

Oct 2018

This was our second stay in Carbis Bay at this property and intend to stay again. Welcoming staff, great location, spacious comfortable property and spotlessly clean. Well done Aspects!

Mar 2018

We love this apartment so much this is the second year we have stayed here, and we are planning on coming back again next year. It is the perfect location. We love the sea view from the apartment. It is a quick walk to Carbis Bay beach and the train station and such easy access to the coastal paths. The apartment is very spacious and gets lots of natural sunlight. Feels like home away from home for us

Jul 2017

A lovely well equipped flat with fabulous views towards St Ives one way and Hayle and Godrevy the other. We were greeted with the ingredinets to make tea, coffee and biscuts and there was a vase of fresh red roses on the hall table.

The lounge and bedrooms were a good size, both with fitted wardrobes and drawers. There were also games, books and jigsaws for rainy days and buckets and spades, fishing net and surf board for sunny ones.

There are quite a lot of steps down from parking area and more upto flat but Carbis Bay and St Ives is very hilly so anyone with mobility problems should seek further advice before booking. There is a very good train service which is a 5 minute walk from the apartment.

Jun 2017

Great stay at 8 Riviera Apartments, Carbis Bay. Lovely location, superb beach and train stop just down the lane into St Ives or St Erth. Great sea views. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are so sorry that you experienced noise from the apartment above. I don't believe that this has been an issue there before, but with differing guests in the apartment each week, we would hope that what you experienced was a one-off. It sounds like you enjoyed everything else about it, so we hope that this didn't take the shine off it for you. Tanya, Customer Services.

Lovely apartment. Light, spacious and well equipped. It has the most beautiful ocean views. Great location with a quick, easy walk to the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to come back
