Bedroom 2


Located in the desirable Cornish resort of Carbis Bay, this gorgeous apartment could easily grace the pages of a high-end coffee table magazine. Featuring a wonderful and established clifftop communal garden, somewhere to spend time enjoying dramatic sea views across the bay and beyond, and across to the turquoise waters of St Ives.

This chic apartment has been stylishly refurbished to accommodate up to three lucky guests. Boldy and creatively decorated with a modern twist on period furnishings, make this property a real holiday gem. Entering through a shared courtyard, guests approach this special hideaway via a staircase which takes you up to the entrance. All one level, step into the sitting-room, a light filled space where the sunlight dances through shutters at the large bay window. An ornate feature fireplace fills the room with grandeur and the rich velvet sofa is perfect for snuggling on after a day out exploring. Enjoy a tasty platter of Cornish goodies at the much-loved Ercol table, just one of many carefully selected pieces that adorn the space. A modern and snug kitchen has everything an inspiring chef may need to cook up a delicious feast using fresh locally grown produce found at a choice of local farm shops in the area.

When it's time to recharge, choose from two cosy and stylish bedrooms, one with a single bed adorned with a deep 'sink into' mattress within the antique iron frame. A luxurious shower-room can be found just next door. The bijou and compact main bedroom features a dreamy double bed and a unique open plan floor to ceiling wardrobe and dressing room area, a very clever use of the space. No need to go far to wash away your sandy day as this bedroom has its own en suite complete with eclectic tiling and a power shower.

Pack a picnic and head outside, follow the footpath and catch your breath as you take in the unrivalled views from the stunning clifftop garden. This is a picture postcard panorama of blue seas and sandy beaches, and if you're lucky you may even spot a seal! Follow the path downhill and it will take you to join the South West Coast Path, what could be better than starting your holiday adventure on foot.

Carbis Bay has its own beautiful beach perfect for building sandcastles or swimming the width of the bay. Not far by foot or car you reach the bustling harbour town of St Ives. With its famous art scene, visit the Barbara Hepworth gallery, the Tate or Leach pottery, feed your creative soul, be inspired, pick up a paint brush and capture the effervescent light - a result of the towns unique location surrounded by blue seas on three sides.

Numerous beaches that match those of the Indian ocean, join the surfers on Porthmeor or beach hop to Porthminster through the narrow streets admiring the old fishermen's cottages, their fishing nets and wind battered boats. Cafes all along the way serving the best of local Cornish fare, you really have found an area with some of Cornwall's finest dining.

Not far away lose yourself in some drama at the Minack Theatre, or chant a prayer with the ancient monks at St Michael's Mount in Marazion, reached by a causeway of granite setts. An area steeped with such history and picture worthy frames everywhere, make sure your camera is fully charged!
