Perched in a dreamy location overlooking the golden sands and turquoise waters of Carbis Bay beach, The Mermaid's Purse is just the place for a Cornish coastal escape. Sleeping four, this stylish apartment is a fabulous choice for a couple's getaway or a family holiday by the sea, any time of the year.

Three flights of external stairs lead down to The Mermaid's Purse, where your holiday begins. Rustle up a delicious feast in the lovely and light kitchen and relax in the open-plan living area, with a dining-table and chairs, two sumptuous sofas, a cosy armchair - and of course, those mesmerising sea views!

You'll find two beautiful bedrooms to choose from. Bedroom one is a gorgeous king room with simply beautiful sea views and an en suite bathroom for those long, leisurely soaks, and bedroom two is a sweet twin room. You'll find the family shower-room next door.

For those glorious sunny days, the sitting/dining-room and the principal bedroom open out onto a decked patio, the perfect spot to unwind and watch the ebb and flow of the tide on the beach below. Preferably with a glass of something tasty in hand…

There's so much to see and do in this special corner of Cornwall. Explore the magic of the seaside town of St Ives, with its art galleries, coffee shops, sea view restaurants, independent shops, and golden sand beaches. You'll have plenty of coastal walks to choose from, too - lace up your walking shoes, pack up a picnic and set off on an adventure. You may even spot a dolphin!

A little further afield, you'll find the enchanting towns of Mousehole and Newlyn, making for fantastic days out any time of the year. And if you're in search of more golden sand beaches, head to Sennen Cove, Marazion, Praa Sands or Porthcurno. Whether you're planning to spend a few days simply relaxing by the sea, or you're hoping for a fun-filled Cornish adventure, a stay at The Mermaid's Purse is sure to leave you feeling refreshed and restored.
