Ideal holiday accommodation with amazing views. Incredibly well appointed with everything to hand to have the perfect break away from home

St Ives is a very special place and Carrack Widden is a great location. As long as you can manage the stairs, the views from the apartment are fantastic.

Well furnished and comfortable room, little used in sunny weather!

Great fun staying in 44 Carrack Widden during the G7 seeing all the fun from the open window. A very clean comfortable flat. We will be back.

Great comfortable apartment with its own parking space.. very clean and has every appliance needed for a great stay… would definitely use the apartment and aspects again..

The apartment was very spacious and airy great views over Porthminster beach ..very clean on arrival and in a great location easy access to the town ..comfortable bed with lots of storage space ..would definitely stay here again

Breath taking views over Porthminster beach, and extensive coastline , a large window to watch the sunrise was spectacular. A couple of minutes from the railway station, below the apartment. Good location for a short walk to the centre of town . Plenty of cafes and restaurants of excellent quality to choose from. Immaculately clean and well stocked kitchen. An added bonus of a car parking space. May be difficult for people with mobility issues, as steps up to the apartment and very hilly.

Our second visit to Carrick Widden & we have already booked for 2021. This apartment is spotlessly clean & everything you need for a perfect holiday. The car parking space is a massive bonus. Already looking forward to our next visit.

We had a wonderful week at St Ives the apartment at 44 Carrack Widden was perfectly situated the views were spectacular the apartment was spotless a real little gem would love to go back

We had a 1 week stay at the beginning of August and we absolutely loved it! The property itself more than exceeded expectations and I mean no offense whatsoever when I say this but, the pictures simply do not do it justice. The view from the window is amazing which opens up and being a large window, this allows for a bright and airy flat which was really pleasing throughout our stay. Even though items had been removed (due to COVID) from the flat, we still managed to find useful games to take to the beach in the cupboard. The location was great to town and it only takes 5 minutes to walk to the beach, the way back kills you a bit with it's hills but worry about that later, it still burns off the dinner you had out! :)

Speaking of which, there are some fantastic restaurants within close proximity to the property which we took full advantage of. I thought it was a bit weird reading reviews of people saying they wanted to go back every year but I might just have to become one of those weirdos now!

St Ives is beautiful and 44 Carrack Widden is in an excellent location in walking distance from everywhere. Terrific views and tastefully decorated whilst still maintaining a relaxed feel.

Really enyoyed two weeks in 44 Carrack Widden ,lovely view,plenty of utensils , Lovely apartment ,wish it was mine ,will return very soon

Great flat in ideal position and wonderful view. Very clean and comfy. Has all you need for a lovely holiday.

Great clean flat with breathtaking views and close enough to town to be convenient without being too close. Kitchen well equipped & comfortable bed. Just perfect!

Fabulous one bed apartment. We have stayed in many different apartments in St Ives & this one is one of the best. The view, the parking space & everything you need for a great holiday. We have already booked for 2020!

In over 30 years of visiting St Ives on and off this was the best accomadation we have stayed in. Had everything you needed for a lovely holiday. Will definitely be staying here again. An added bonus was the parking space.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 44 Carrack Widden. The apartment was in a great location for town & beach, very well equipped, great views across Porthminster Beach.

44 Carrack Widden is a flat in a good location with provision of a parking space (a rarity in St. Ives!). It enjoys fabulous views out over Porthminster Beach to Hayle and Godrevy Lighthouse which really can't be beaten. It is a short walk down to Porthminster Beach and a little further to the town beach, Porthmeor (Surfing) Beach and the Tate Gallery. Everywhere is within walking distance and this makes it an excellent choice for a really relaxing break. The town is full of lovely shops and galleries to browse around and there is a good choice of places to eat. We have been coming here regularly for some 40 years now so it can't be bad!

This is a lovely modern apartment with an excellent view over looking Porthminster Beach with the added bonus of having its own parking space we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would definately stay here again in the future.

This property is in an excellant location and has a wonderful sea view overlooking the beach. It is clean, modern and very comfortable. Cannot fault it at all.

I absolutely loved this place. Modern, clean, and had everything and more that you need on holiday. The view was more than amazing from the window. And watching the sunrise was breathtaking! Wow!

Fantastic property. Perfect location. We love staying here and will continue to do so for years to come!

The apartment is in a fantastic location with exceptional views over Porth minster beach, it is very well equipped and is decorated to a high standard

Fabulous view and immaculate property. Quite a hike up from the beach but worth it!

The flat was absolutely clean und well furnished. We didn't miss anything. There was everything in the kitchen you need and there was plenty of dish. The bed was we would really like to come again. Thank you for the good weather, too.

nice apartment just what I was after excellent views would book again when in Cornwall

This is situated perfectly,the view was amazing.It was a 5 minute walk into the centre of st ives.Would definitely recommend staying here and it was reasonably priced too.

This lovely apartment has everything needed for a comfortable holiday. It's been really thoughtfully planned and decorated. The views across Porthminster beach are breathtaking. It's ideally situated for easy access in to St Ives town, the beaches and the coastal path. Carbis Bay is an easy walk away. We'd love to return.

excellent location spotlessly clean well equipped we liked the flooring much better than carpets and the walk in shower rather than over a bath and shower curtain was perfect

The accommodation was very clean, well equipped and in an excellent location for whichever activity you wished to do.

My husband and I decided to revisit St Ives after many family holidays in Cornwall when our boys were younger - we were not at all disappointed - our holiday accommodation was perfect! Location, comfort and cleanliness was just outstanding! Thank you Aspect Holidays

Would recommend 44 Carrick widden,superb views spottlesly clean will definitely return.

Great views . Everything clean & just perfect .
