This would be the best location which you could find at Carbis bay in St Ives. Absolutely stunning views outside of widow, you could not find a better location than this property. Very close to the train station, and it was a very nice experience to have a train journey to St Ives and other places, beautiful view on the train and train tickets are very friendly. The property has pretty much everything that you need, it even has something that prepared for you which you wouldn't expect, such as a fresh bottle of Cornish milk, coffee machine and different type of coffee, tea... so much more, every detail is thoughtfully considered. It's a place that instantly feels like home. Our time spent here in Cornwall was nothing short of magical, leaving us with cherished memories that will last a lifetime. We extend our gratitude to Classic Cottage and the attentive caretakers of this property. Without a doubt, we'll be returning and enthusiastically recommending this gem to others....

Our favourite place to be in the UK.

Wonderful apartment with excellent sea view. Near wonderful beach and good starting locations for trips around south-west Cornwall.

A lovely, tastefully decorated and well equipped apartment with a stunning view of Carbis Bay. We very much enjoyed sitting out on the deck and enjoying the views and the sound of the sea.

We have been to the Mermaids Purse for a number of years now and always call it our second home. We have a rule of thumb that if you cannot stay in a property or hotel up to the standard of your own home then we stay at home! The Mermiads Purse is just splendid for us. Mr. Peters (housekeeper) a very friendly and helpful person and enjoyed speaking to him. Barbara and Geoff x...
