Cosy flat with excellent views of St Ives and the beaches, easy parking but a little tight if you have a large vehicle and easy walking distance to all amenities. The flat is well equiped for all you would need.

A good location only a short walk to the centre of St Ives. There are great views over Porthminster Beach and over towards the town. The flat is comfortable and well equipped. Another benefit is the parking space, which is right outside the apartment.

A lovely, comfortable apartment in a convenient location. Only a short walk to Porthminster beach and to the town. Spotlessly clean. We have booked again for next year.

A lovely apartment, very cosy and a nice home feel. Beautifully presented and with stunning views and in an excellent location that is quiet yet very near to the beach and town.

Great flat in an excellent location with beautiful dual aspect views. Very well equipped and maintained.

This is a fantastic apartment with fantastic views, but could be a little tight for four adults as in two couples. The car parking space in St Ives is a bonus but could be a little difficult in terms of width for a car much more than a Focus or Astra. We are a couple with a ford B Max who are originally from Cornwall. So will we book again? Even though we have a 7 hour drive to get there? Of course we would, and we have.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

With a twin bedroom and a double sofa bed in the living area, the owners have tried to offer flexible sleeping arrangements for guests. So, whilst it can sleep up to 4 people, some may find it a little limited on space at full occupancy. We have tried to show the space and seating/sleeping arrangements as clearly as we can within the website photos and description, so we do hope that this was all as you had expected. Thank you also highlighting the parking space. Our literature indicates average parking spaces as being suitable for a VW Golf or something similar, but we will look into how we can help to make this information clearer for guests. We would always want to be as open and honest with our descriptions as possible. Thank you for taking the time to send in your comments and we hope that you enjoyed your time here. Tanya, Customer Services

Had a very comfortable stay. The kitchen area is very well equipped and a lovely gesture of complimentary tea, coffee, sugar and milk on arrival. Lovely views from the double aspect lounge. All in all, a lovely stay. Would definitely stay here again.

This is our fourth time staying at carrack widden and as always it was just perfect, the views from every window are superb and it is very comfortable And homely I really couldn’t recommend staying here enough, it almost feels like our second home and we cant wait to return next year Amanda and Martyn Welwyn, Hertfordshire

This property is a great place to stay to explore St Ives and the surrounding areas. It has such good views from all the windows - even the bathroom! The property is compact, but has everything you need. We particularly enjoyed having our breakfast looking out over the beautiful view, watching the paddleboarders and dogs with their walkers. The location was perfect - nice quiet area, but you can be on the lovely white sand of Porthminster beach in 10 minutes walk, or in the bustle of St Ives Harbour with its lovely restaurants and local shops. You can also pick up the coastal path for lovely coastal walks, or hop on the St Ives Branch Line train to take you up the coast.

A apartment with lovely views and easy walking distance to the town, good car parking and access to the flat, the flat is ideal for a relaxing care free holiday

Excellent apartment. Fantastic views of St Ives, with the bonus of a parking space. Would definitely recommend for a couple or young family...great value for money

Aspects as a whole are ace. We will use again and have already recommended to loads of people. Our experience of service and communication have been exceptional Keep up the same standards

Everything is exactly as advertised, easily meets and exceeds expectations, a lovely little appartment with beautiful views. It's the first time we've booked with Aspects and everything was absolutely hassle free - even with a 12 month covid delay! We will definitely use Aspects again. Thank you.

This is the perfect place to stay for a family wanting to beach comb or just enjoy the charm of pretty & magical St. Ives. Just a short stroll up from the train & bus station you will NOT be disappointed ......the property is not only beautifully decorated, warm & cosy with everything you need but the views are STUNNING!!!!!! Also I recommend the Toffee apple crumble slices & Millionaire slices from the Allotment deli - yummy!!!! I promise you that you will not be disappointed with this holiday and in my opinion it is a million times better than anything you will find overseas as the Cornish charm and culture especially in St. Ives and surrounding area is so magical its impossible to find that anywhere else! I also recommend the amazing Sundaes & array of amazing flavour Kellys ice creams on Wharf Road. Porthmeor beach has bigger waves for surfing and bodybarding and Porthgwiddon is more sheltered and calmer more suitable for families tho Porthmeor too of course as well as Porthminster which pretty much has everything! You will come away from this hol feeling refreshed, relaxed and mesmerised

Fantastic flat with excellent views, everything you'll need is there. Having breakfast at the table looking out towards the harbour is priceless.

Aspects have been really helpful especially with all the disrution caused to our booking by the Covid pandemic. Freindly and very professional I would be happy to recommend them.

This was our 3rd stay at 48 carrack widen and as always it didn’t disappoint. A very comfortable, well equipped and homely flat with the most amazing views of st Ives and porthminster beach, We have already booked to return next year,

St Ives is our happy place in summer or winter its magical ,loads to do and explore good food and shops filled with lovely pretty and or tasty things, lots of happy friendly people , brilliant transport links ,restaurants serving fresh local produce cooked to perfection and beautiful beaches to walk or just sit and relax and listen to the waves it's a little bit of heaven x?

St ives is spectacular please keep it that way !!!!

Excellent accomodation with superb views across St Ives bay, having parking is excellent being so close to the town but without the hassle actually driving through the town.

Small compact flat well located. Ideal for one or two guests. Lovely sea views

We really enjoyed our stay at the apartment! It was our second time there, this time celebrating our honeymoon.

On arrival to pick up the keys we were greeted by a lovely member of the Aspects staff with a card and a bottle of prosecco. What a wonderful surprise!

The apartment as before was clean, comfortable with beautiful views from every window. The location with included parking is perfect for us. It is only a short walk to gain access to the beach and the centre of St Ives.

We will definitely be staying again in the future!

Tracey and Stewart Robson

Great apartment, perfect for 2 adults, or a family with younger children, although does sleep 4 would be a bit close for comfort if all adults. Would definitely stay again.

Loved the location with lovely views of beach and harbour, property clean and well equipped, great bonus with car parking.

Excellent location and accommodation , St Ives is a lovely place to visit and the location is so close to the beaches and town .

An excellent, small but perfectly formed apartment with the most amazing views out over rooftops towards the harbour and over Porthminster beach. With the windows open you can hear the sea. Perfect for a couple with plenty of comfy seating, comfy beds and lots kitchen equipment. Clean and quiet - I would say here again and would recommend it to friends too.

When I’ve booked with Aspect Holidays , I’ve had nothing but professionalism from each and everyone of your staff , All are friendly, helpful, and every property I’ve used through Aspects Holidays have been excellent . Thank You

Location is excellent and the car parking is a bonus ,so near to st Ives town but still away from the noise. Views are stunning

A fantasitic well equiped appartment. In a beauitful location with breath taking veiws. With the added bonus of parking, and within walking distance to the centre of st ives town.

Wonderful apartment , wonderful views would highly recommend it to anybody and we will certainly be returning well done everybody.

The views are excellent! You can see the beach from the window. Nice modern apartment with good use of space and the added bonus of a parking space makes things so easy.

Nice and peaceful in the complex also. Only a few minutes walk to the beach and center of St. Ives.

Lovely location and views

The views from this are the best we have ever had and I would recommend this property without a doubt.

Lovely clean, bright apartment with fabulous views

Very comfortable flat; views to die for!

Fantastic views, we could not ask for a better situated property.

Cosy apartment ideal for 2 people in a brilliant location, much needed parking space and the views from the living room windows are spectacular.

Carrack widden is a truly unique experience. Combining afordability, luxurious accommodation, and breathtaking views.

48 Carrick Widden - views from apartment windows are amazing, alot better than I thought. Parking was excellent with good facilities on site. Only 5 minutes walk to the town centre and beach. Comfortable for two people but I think it would struggle with four people.

Call me selfish but if I priased it to much it would come to popular and wouldn't be available when I wanted it x
