Sandbanks is quite simply a jewel in the crown, a holiday home from home whilst visiting the St Ives area. A stunning property, luxuriously appointed throughout and with breathtaking uninterrupted sea views across the glittering St Ives Bay and rugged north Cornwall coast.

This beautiful home is detached, offering privacy and a secluded feel, and yet is within easy reach of the popular shops, restaurants beaches and galleries of St Ives town Centre. Mainly arranged on one level but with an additional third en-suite bedroom attic conversion with lighthouse views, there is a feeling of real opulent relaxation here. Furnished with style and equipped to perfection the Sandbanks experience extends outside to the wrap around verandah, perfect for lazy al fresco breakfasts or evening sundowners as you watch the glorious sunsets over The Bay. Other real bonuses are dedicated parking (for one vehicle) and even your own footpath leading to the pristine sands of the Blue Flagged Carbis Bay Beach. Ideal for families or couples, a holiday based at Sandbanks is a rare treat indeed.

Sandbanks was beautiful, a real home from home with everything you need for a comfortable holiday. The log burner and AGA kept the property so cosy. The outside space was also beautiful. Location was great with the beach, train station and bus station all within minutes walk. Ideally placed for some beautiful walks into the busy St Ives.

Mrs C,

The property is amazing the kitchen is huge it really is the hub of the house. Beautiful garden and the decking is great for relaxing on. The proximity to the beach and train station is perfect. It’s so easy to get on the footpath into St. Ives. Although the train fare is nothing to worry about.

Mrs F,
