You will not regret choosing Carrack Widden. The views from the front room are incredible. The location is just perfect for spending time on Porthminster Beach aswell as being able to walk into the town and harbour area and other beaches in St Ives. Was also well situated for coastal walks to Carbis Bay and beyond. The car parking space was easy and a real perk to have in this area.

Cost little flat which was immaculately kept. Fully equipped with many extra touches. Location was second to none and having a parking was an extra bonus. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting a stay in St Ives.

Good location, great views of Porthminister beach. Parking space a real bonus in St Ives. Walking distance to bars and restaurants. Apartment is comfortable and well equipped. Would stay again when back in the area.

We love staying at 44 Carrack Widden, have stayed there a few times now and already booked for next year. We love the location, ease of parking with your own space. Apartments have their own caretaker, who is great. Spectacular views across Porthminster. Costs keep increasing but no more than any other accommodation in St Ives.

Great holiday, comfortable accommodation with beautiful views. Would definitely recommend.

Great flat in ideal position with a wonderful view of the beach and coastline. Very clean and comfy, very well equipped. Has all you need for a lovely holiday. Parking a real bonus.

Great location with easy access to the town and beaches. Parking space a real bonus.

We have had a wonderful two weeks in St Ives. This flat is well positioned,with the bonus of parking. The view is wonderful and we saw dolphins and seals from our window. Aspects holiday staff are amazing ,going that extra mile. Another bonus is that you do not have to go into town to pick up your keys. Looking forward to coming again next year or maybe sooner.

Nice little apartment with stunning views. Perfect location in St Ives and with a parking space which is a huge bonus!

We had a wonderful week here. The view is truly exceptional, and the apartment is perfectly placed to explore St Ives with a very short walk to the beach and town.

We had a lovely holiday and the apartment was lovely and clean and lovely views

St Ives is a lovely town and offers some great eating places and shops to shop, the accommodation was in the right place for us and as said has a great view over the beach. Also close to the rail station should you need it, parking good as each room on the upper level has it's own space. Great holiday and would stay again

Our flat was very comfortable with everything we needed. The view in particular was stunning and we would be very happy to stay there again.

We had a wonderful stay in a beautiful flat with the most amazing view of Porthminster beach. The flat was spotlessly clean and stocked with everything you need : comfortable bed, great shower, lots of crockery and even salt and pepper, hand soap and washing up liquid. It’s in a great location for walking into St Ives harbour area or catching the train and with the added bonus of a parking space we were able to drive around the surrounding area too. Fantastic holiday thanks.

The property is in an excellent location, with spectacular views overlooking the beach and sea. The place was spotlessly clean, and very well equipped with everything we needed. Situated a little bit out of the centre, it was quieter, but not too far to walk into town for shops/bars/restaurants, albeit up a steep climb. Very suitable for a couple to stay in and the parking space was an added bonus. I would recommend the accommodation and would return again. Thank you for a lovely week.

Lovely modern apartment with an incredible view. The parking was a big plus, very easy to get to the main road without having to go near the twisty lanes of St Ives! The position and view are hard to beat. Would definitely recommend for a single person or couple who want to be in a quiet spot yet only a few minutes from the town and beaches.

Where do I start the view was breathtaking, the apartment was really clean and did everything we wanted , we would definitely go back again and did I say the views were breathtaking

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 .
