Shoreline, Gwel Marten Carbis Bay

£456 - £1257 per week
Book
 

Shoreline is a spacious and comfortable apartment. Being on the ground floor allows the great benefit of direct access to the communal gardens (which in turn has access to the coastal path), straight from the sitting room. A huge, floor-to-ceiling bay window affords unobstructed sea views and enables guests to actually look down on the beach from the comfort of their own sofa. Shoreline makes for an ideal holiday home for couples and families alike, with a highchair, toys, a children's table and crockery all waiting for you when you arrive.

Gwel Marten is 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, past 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 via which St Ives can be reached in three minutes! 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.

two sofas, TV/Blu-ray DVD, Apple TV, feature fireplace, patio door to private patio area and communal garden, sea views of Carbis Bay across to St Ives and Godrevy Lighthouse.

The best view in Cornwall!! Great location - 5 minutes walk to the beach, or 3 minutes to the station. The trains to St Ives run each hour and were always exactly on time. The apartment was very well appointed, clean and comfortable, a real home-from-home. Everything we needed was there. A very relaxing stay.

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.

This is a fantastic property, with a wonderful view, and great location for St Ives (via very close by station) as well as the rest of Cornwall. Very comfortable and extremely well equipped. We honestly can’t think of a better location and can’t imagine what would have made the apartment itself any better.

Aug 2018

We loved the view and being so close to the beach and the coastal path. Carbis Bay is such a lovely, beautiful and clean beach. And - by far not so busy like St Ives. We‘d love to be back.

We had an enjoyable and comfortable stay. The view is amazing! Great to have outside space to enjoy the view. A good base to explore the area either by car or by train, which you can catch from the station across the road.
