Property code: OC-SANDBK

Set in the picture-perfect cove of Carbis Bay, enjoy glorious views across the bay to St Ives and Godrevy Lighthouse at this light and bright coastal getaway perfect for families looking to uncover the sandy shoreline, scenic walks and freshly caught produce that makes West Cornwall so irresistible.

After a long day exploring your sandy surroundings, no better inviting welcome is the plush, comfy sofas in the cosy lounge; unwind weary walking muscles amongst the soothing neutral colour palette and fantastic views over Carbis Bay from the expanse of picture windows. Head into the contemporary kitchen/diner to get creative with all the delicious local produce you’ve collected and enjoy making special family memories seated around the wooden dining table. As day turns to dusk, you have two beautifully presented bedrooms on this level and a third bedroom comprising the first floor offering superb views of Godrevy Lighthouse to retire to for a well-earned rest. Soak up your glorious views and catch some stunning sunsets over the bay by dining alfresco on the veranda wrapping around the property before exploring the lawn or joining the footpath leading to the beach.

The picturesque harbourside town of St Ives comprises a maze of cobbled streets lined with independent shops and some award-winning restaurants and cafés serving the best freshly caught produce this area has to offer. Creative minds can explore the many world-famous galleries in St Ives, including the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden (1.5 miles away), comprising over 30 impressive sculptures set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens, and the iconic Tate St Ives 2 miles away. Explore the award-winning Porthminster Beach just under 1.5 miles away and paddle its crystal waters before leisurely relaxing in a quintessentially seaside deck chair or aiming for a hole-in-one at the 18-hole mini golf course nearby.

The bungalow was fabulous. A real home from home. Couldn't fault it, and would definitely stay again. There was no welcome pack left, which was a bit inconvenient, as we had to leave our bags quickly and pop to the supermarket. But that didn't put us off at all.

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.
