“Idyllic Apartment in a fabulous beach setting”
Reviewed 3 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Carbis Bay in the sunshine is fantastic - great soft sand, really clean, not too many people and great for kids. The Apartments are at the top of the hill above the beach - keeps you really fit! And the place itself is fantastic with a private balcony and jacuzzi bath (nice!!) Restaurants in abundance and they are a nice evening walk away. Take a torch the path can get quite dark later on at night. Its also not very good on the path for prams but walking is fine. Some great coastal walks towards Hayle (but don't go past Lalent station) as its very industrial for a while. the guy at the station is great he and his wife serve cream teas in their garden. We had a great time.

“Absolutely amazing!”
Reviewed 31 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

Back from an amazing holiday in Cornwall. Usually stay in a hotel but fancied trying something new this time. Came across Fernhill and found the whole booking process incredibly easy and owner very helpful.

Really impressed when we drove up to the building and even more so when we entered the apartment! Absolutely gorgeous! Really clean and nicely decorated with everything you would need and more (fab jacquzzi bath!). A lovely welcome hamper was waiting for us, and we didn't waste any time sitting on the balcony drinking a glass of wine while admiring the great view.

We didn't have great weather whilst we were there, but it didn't matter as there is loads to do and see in the area, and besides, it was really nice snuggling up on the sofa watching a DVD whilst sipping coffee from the amazing coffee machine!

The area is nice and quiet away from the crowds, but still only about a 15/20 minute walk to lovely St Ives which is great. Beautiful Carbis Bay beach is also only a 5 minute walk away down a very pretty footpath.

I would highly recommend staying here and I can't wait till we go back!

“We'll be going back!”
Reviewed 8 August 2011 for a stay in March 2011

We've stayed in so many different apartments in and around St Ives and we can honestly say that this one's the best. We had an absolutely brilliant time. When the sun was out, we were on the balcony with our favourite view out across Carbis Bay to Godrevy. We really enjoyed having such good walking access down the path to Carbis Bay beach and the Carbis Bay hotel, for a hot chocolate or a sandwhich. When it was raining outside, the apartment was incredibly cosy and homely, as well as being beautifully decorated. We were particularly impressed by everything the kitchen had to offer (including amazing coffee machine!) and we loved the Jacuzzi bath and spacious showers. And being clean freaks we were very appreciative of the attention to detail that obviously goes into the cleaning of the apartment.

As far as the location goes, it’s pretty much perfect. You can easily walk into St Ives town for shopping, or for a great meal. The station and bus stops are within easy reach if you don’t fancy driving somewhere, but you’re also far enough out of town that it’s very peaceful and quiet, apart from the distant sound of the sea. We spent some time in the lovely shared garden as well, which must be fantastic in the summer.

All in all, it was one of the best trips to St Ives we’ve had in 15 years of visits. I’d recommend it to anyone who's going down there, whatever the season.
