Guestbook comments from the owner

From start to finish our choosing this apartment as our base couldnt have been anyless stress free. The Apartment is stunning inside and out, very well equiped and furnished to a very high standard, the view from the bedroom is outstanding....views across Carbis Bay. I did have doubts initially with being an apartment and having shared access etc, but no not here, private entry via your own gate to your private garden to the side and rear. A lovely walk down to Carbis Bay via the side of the apartments which takes 5 minutes or if you wish you can very easily walk downhill to St. Ives, we did this a few times but chose to catch the train back which is fab and only a short walk back to the apartment. Fantastic holiday all round would highly recommend, almost dont want to share with anyone else.

Beautiful flat in traditional looking but modern building with scenic views

  • 5 of 5

Fernhill was an excellent base for exploring the St Ives area and still within easy distance of Heligan and the Eden Project. We are it to visit several Poldark film locations, as well as visiting the Tate an Barbara Hepworth house and garden.

We enjoyed a bike ride through stunning country from Wadebridge to Padstow (using Camel trail cycle hire).

The apartment has great cooking facilities and we are at home several evenings and even baked some bread. Lucy has left us some tasty treats which we really enjoyed.

The flat was beautifully decorated and furnished. We did find the sofa bed difficult for two adults to use but the bed was comfortable and views from. The bedroom were gorgeous.

Lucy provided great directions and information and was quick to respond to queries. A very good host!

Nice, quiet, relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

A nice, quiet, ground floor apartment which was ideal for a relaxing stay near St Ives. A short walk from the railway station and bus stop for St Ives itself (don't take the car in!) Tesco also very close by. The bed was not as comfortable as we would've liked and there is a bit of a drop from the balcony to the grass but everything else was perfect for a quiet relaxing time. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a good sized TV with DVD player, CD player and smaller TV in the bedroom. There is also a wallet containing local details which is well worth a read on arrival to orientate to the apartment and local area. All well thought out and helpful. This all helped to make it a bit home from home and with the lovely view of Carbis Bay was great for a break. We would recommend this apartment for a couple in particular.

Great Holiday Apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this really nice, well equipped and very modern holiday apartment in late July for a week. It had everything we required for our holiday and was immaculately clean and fresh. Location was excellent for access to the local Tesco for all our supplies and the private pathway from the complex down to the beach was excellent. Carbis Bay beach is fantastic with lovely soft golden sands!!

The apartment is on the ground floor and so benefits from having a private patio and terrace for alfresco dining which was fantastic and you can sit outside and take in the wonderful views over the very well kept gardens down to the sea.

The other great benefit was the private parking which is a must have requirement during the busy holiday season. We often left the car and walked into St Ives using the Coastal Path as well as making use of the excellent tourist train from Carbis Bay. We will certainly be re-booking again in the future as its fantastic value for money.
