This Carbis Bay holiday house is perfectly located just five minutes walk from the magnificent Carbis Bay beach. Also, just a couple of minutes walk away is Carbis Bay train station with regular trains along the beautifully scenic coastal branch line into St Ives.

The downstairs of the house incorporates spacious open-plan living, kitchen, dining room and conservatory with direct access to the garden.

The garden certainly comes into its own in the evening when the whole family can enjoy dining al-fresco on the inviting patio.

From half-landing; twin bedroom and separate wc.

One of Cornwall’s eight award-winning Blue Flag 2017 beaches, with safe bathing beach surrounded by subtropical splendour.

Facing northeast and just one mile east of St Ives, the beach rarely has any surf so makes for an ideal spot for families with toddlers as the sea here is perfect for swimming. Served by the picturesque St Ives branch line and around a mile long, the golden sands bathe in the bright light of west Cornwall and a short walk on the east side of the beach at low tide brings you to Porth Kidney sands.

Guests Reviews

Lovely stay in a lovely house. Would probably have given 5 stars if the C-19 restrictions hadn't been in place i.e. the cosy home furnishings etc having had to be removed. Great location for the train station and walking to the surrounding beaches via coastal paths. Even though we were there in September, the garden was still pretty, albeit the sun was hard sometimes to find as the trees are large. We were a party of 3 adults and if we had a party of 6 would have preferred an extra sofa to enjoy chatting in the lovely lounge area. The beds and pillows in the bedrooms are SO comfortable and very important when you're on holiday. Welcome pack was a lovely touch as was the added homely touches around...washing powder/liquid/bin bags etc ...home from home guys.. thank you. See you soon Gwaynten.

Alan and his team were incredibly professional, organised and helpful in extraordinary circumstances this year. Gwaynten was absolutely fabulous, well equipped, absolutely spotless and the perfect location for everything. We literally only left the house in the car to play golf! You can walk to the beach and catch the train to St Ives within 3-5 minutes, just perfect. Thank you so much for everything, I would highly recommend So St Ives and we can't wait to book again!

Gwaynten: A lovely light, airy house with everything you need in the kitchen. Clean, uncluttered with fluffy white towels and a welcome back of wine, tea, coffee and biscuits. Downhill to the beautiful beach and on to the scenic walk to St Ives - no need to use transport if you are fit enough! A great place with very responsive hosts. We would definitely come again.

Gwaynten: We had a lovely week and the house exceeded our expectations. It was well fitted out with impressive standards of cleanliness which was very reassuring when travelling with young children (including a crawling baby) and grandparents. Although a steep climb to the beach, the location was great and we enjoyed days at the beach followed by evenings in the beautiful garden. Photos don’t do it justice! Thanks for the welcome pack which was a lovely touch. We’re so glad the house was made available and hope to return again.

We had a fabulous stay at Gwaynten last week. The house was extremely well equipped with everything we could possibly need. The decor was stylish and the house was spotless. We were staying with two children under ten and my husbands parents and the house suited everyone. The hill to the beach is pretty steep but a short walk and well worth it. We all coped well. Thankyou for a perfect holiday home, we hope to be back soon.

We had a fantastic week in Carbis Bay. The property was perfectly situated with only a short, but steep, walk to the beach. The property was of a high standard, with plenty of space for our family of five. I would recommend this property to family and friends.

Unbelievable quality and comfort! Gwaynten is a great house for a family holiday, perfectly located in Carbis Bay just up the hill from the beach. The house is really spacious, very well equipped and tastefully furnished. The garden was the icing on the cake though. We will be back, thank you!

We absolutely loved our stay at Gwaynten last summer. The house is lovely, spacious and is so close to Carbis Bay beach that, once we’d stocked up at Tesco, we didn’t use our car all week! We all enjoyed the garden, especially eating outside on the patio after a busy day lounging! We were lucky with the weather so we spent most of our time on the beach - adults relaxed as our young children enjoyed playing in the stream. When the weather wasn’t so good we hopped on the train into St Ives, a stunning ride along the coast. The town is beautiful but was so busy that we enjoyed getting on the train and back to Carbis Bay!! We are so happy to hear that the house is available to rent again this summer and we will definitely be returning!
