Ground floor apartment in Carbis Bay only 5 mins walk from the beautiful Blue Flag beach. Stunning far-reaching views over St Ives Bay. Penzance 6 miles.
St Ives 2.1 miles. A superbly located ground floor apartment with stunning far-reaching sea views overlooking the award-winning Blue Flag beach at Carbis Bay in Cornwall. For a romantic getaway for couples who are beach lovers, this location close to the town of St Ives really is hard to beat. With private parking directly outside the apartment, you enter into the light and airy kitchen and dining area before passing the double bedroom and bathroom on the way through to the sitting room. There is also a double sofa bed for flexible sleeping arrangements. Here, even on a stormy day in winter, you will be able to relax and enjoy the amazing sea views across the bay. From the delightful sheltered garden which is shared only with one other apartment, you have direct access onto the coastal path. Turn left and you will be on the magnificent Carbis Bay beach and right to the much quieter beautiful sands of Porth Kidney beach. The apartment is situated in a quiet area of Carbis Bay but with the beach, railway station, restaurants and shops all within five minutes’ walk, the situation is perfect. Everyone will want to visit the picturesque harbour town of St Ives with its award-winning beaches, restaurants, cafes and bars but rather than try and drive and park in this ever-popular town, it is strongly recommended that you take the scenic four-minute train ride from the nearby station enabling you to enjoy your day to the full. A wonderful location offering comfortable accommodation all year round.

Sports & Adventure Activities
On first impression the property looked very run down on the outside compared to other buildings.
When we first arrived the building looked very run down compared to the surrounding buildings. When we entered the building at 3 pm, which was the time we had been told the property would be ready, we found that it had not been cleaned and bedding and towels were not changed. We had to make several phone calls and spoke to 3 different people at Sykes, each time having to re-explain our situation. We also had to talk to the owner who was apologetic. The cleaner did eventually arrive and worked very quickly to clean the apartment but was unable to fix the light bulbs and the broken drawer that the previous clients had mentioned in a note which was left on the table. We were eventually able to take residence in the apartment at about 5.30 pm. Having spoken to various people including the owner it appeared that there had been some communication breakdown between the owner (OwnersDirect), Sykes and the cleaning company which obviously needs to be sorted for future bookings.
We were also greeted midweek by a painter who had come to paint the outside of the house. Whilst this was a much needed enhancement to the house, it was not really what we wanted to be taking place whilst we were staying in this accommodation.
We did however have a lovely week staying in the Llewellan but unfortunately did not start the holiday the way we would have liked to.
