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.

Jul 2019

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!
