11 longstone house is set in Carbis Bay. With free private parking, the property is 700 metres from Carbis Bay and 2.6 km from Gwithian Beach. Excellent clean, comfortable & stylish apartment close to Carbis Bay. Beautiful coastal walks to beach & St Ives, easy drive around Penwith. Friendly & helpful hosts. Well equipped kitchen - additions of sieve/colander & bread/chopping knife would be assets. We hope to return!
NO SEA VIEW. FROM BORDING HOUSE. CARBIS BAY BEACH IS VERY NICE CLEAN AND TIDY GOOD FACILITIES. DIFFICULT TO ACCSESS BY CAR UNLESS YOU WANT TO PAY £20 PARKING FEE. PARK AT THE TOP AND WALK DOWN, THE WALK BACK IS VERY HARD NOT SUITABLE FOT ELDERLY PEOPLE UNLESS YOU ARE VERY FIT. CARBIS BAY IT SELF IS VERY SMALL AND NOTHING MUCH TO DO ONLY THE BEACH.
Beautiful white sandy bay with restaurant, bar and toilets. Access is via a very steep hill but there is a small car park but costly at £20 a day. Going down to the beach is fine, but going back up is a struggle, especially in this heat wave we’re currently having!!
St Merryn Hotel, our room was comfortable for a base to travel around Cornwall, using the regular bus service which was 150mts away. we used Costa's located in Tesco's for breakfast and other meals were easily available on our travels.
The coastal path very close to this hotel is a joy to walk on. Lovely peaceful walk going west (20 mins) to St. Ives, and you can return the same way and continue walking all the way along coastal path through Carbis bay to Lelant. It is the most picturesque route of sea views and enclosed footpaths with pretty wild flowers either side. Carbis bay itself is a little too commercial and busy for my taste but you can easily continue past it towards Lelant. All the time, coastal path is very close to railway line, which I liked, and I could get the train back from Lelant to Carbis bay when too tired to walk back, and short walk back to hotel (St. Merryn) . There used to be a small cafe doing exquisite cream tea in the old station house at Lelant station. Sadly no more I discovered this time, but still a beautiful part of the world,
If you enjoy a 'home from home' experience with warm welcome, a cosy yet quirky place to rest your head, and conveniently quiet base to explore from then this is the place to go:-) Especially nice for creatives and explorers, with a view of the sea from the breakfast room, maybe take an hour or so to indulge yourself and paint a seascape! That's what I'll be doing on my next visit, for sure! I've stayed in so many different B&Bs over the years as I absolutely love St Ives however, this one feels like it has a heart and is drawing me back for a return visit; and I'm sure you will feel the same, so why not give it a go! Absolutely nothing to dislike, just take it easy and enjoy the experience.
St Ives is a small nice town. Probably quieter and more relaxed than Penzance. Near the bay there are several beaches with white soft sand and splendid views. The most recommended spot is The Island. You can see the entire town and most beaches down from the small chapel on the top. Sunset scene is so beautiful.
Such a lovely little B&B in the perfect location. A short walk into Carbis Bay & a train journey taking only 3 minutes into St Ives from there. Managed to park right outside no problem. This B&B came recommended & it certainly didn’t disappoint. Adrian is lovely & welcoming. Both Adrian & his daughter couldn’t do enough for us which was so nice, thank you so much to both of you if you read this review. I will be recommending your B&B & hope to return soon.
A very good breakfast with lots of choice. My wife wanted Porridge and Margaret and Martin were only too pleased to arrange. We are not big fried breakfast people, so other choices were available. The property is located close to the carbis bay beach area and if you are into walking its about a mile and a half from St Ives. Property had a very nice large front garden which had wonderful views of the sea. We would recommend. Good parking available for small and large cars.
The apartment was extremely clean and perfectly situated for us. The kitchen was great, had everything we needed including a dishwasher and a washer dryer so manged to get all my little boys clothes clean and dry. Beds were very comfortable and had everything we needed for a great family vacation. Steep walk down public footpath straight to carbis bay beach. It took around 10-15 minutes. It definitely got the Hart pumping but lovely walk.
Excellent breakfast. This is surely the home of the West of England egg poaching champion! Traditional items plus Eggs Royale etc all cooked to perfection. Service with a smile. We walked up from Carbis Bay station and were met with warmest of welcomes, and were provided with local information, bus timetables, cases carried to room for us, and a tray of freshly brewed tea.
Location was excellent, set on a hill very near to Carbis Bay beach. St Ives is just a 20 minute walk along the coastal path. The apartment itself was well furnished and decorated, with lovely comfy beds and fluffy towels. The owner was excellent at communication and was quick to answer any questions.
Modern decor. spotlessly clean with excellent bathrooms. superb view of Carbis Bay beach and the sea from the living room and main bedroom. Spacious living room with plenty of seating for relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet as well as the constant soothing sound of the waves.
Location was good for seeing Cornwall, Carbis Bay is lovely, train journey to St Ives was so quant. The walk from the church to the beach and along the beach was lovely. The coastal walk to St Ives is a must, even when the sun is shinning there is plenty of shade.
Nice room, Great breakfast, nice garden area also plenty of parking at rear of hotel. Friendly staff Lisa / Molly / Ben especially go the extra mile for you. Ease of transport given the well served bus route right outside of the hotel.
Excellent host, really warm and personable and even gave us a birthday gift! Incredible breakfast, the best I've ever had in a hotel and the entire experience went above and beyond to make our trip amazing. Would definitely stay again!
about 10 mins walk to carbis bay beach, next to Tesco and a pub. very good location. money for value was great compared to St. Ives prices.
