The perfect family apartment!
Finding this gem of an apartment really made our long weekend down in Cornwall... as the parents of a 5 year old, being able to walk the coastal paths/beach at sun down, just by stepping out of the back door, burnt off the last of her energy and because of the spectacular view from the lounge, we didn't feel penalised as parents having to stay in! It was wonderful to watch Carbis Bay and St Ives beyond slowly light up at night...
The apartment has everything you need and simply cannot be beaten on location. A short walk from the terrace at the back, down the coastal path and you are on the beach... and a short walk in another direction and you're at the station and 3 mins away from St Ives (just make sure you have cash for the ticket machine... and coins not notes!!! There's no credit card option here either!) You could quite easily leave your exploring at that, the beach at Carbis Bay far exceeded what we expected (a huge sandy beach, and we even found a cave tunnel to explore) and St Ives made all the better to visit by not having the hassle and cost of parking... but we managed to squeeze in Sennen Cove (amazing surf beach, even if we only watched others do it!) and St Michael's Mount (you can never get tired of waiting and walking the sea road across!) and the Eden Project on the only rainy day we had... but wished we hadn't wasted our time driving to Lands End, which has seriously gone downhill since we were last there, we were there 20 mins before we left and went to Sennen instead!
Not an apartment for any one that would have trouble with very steep steps down to the apartment, steep coastal/road walk to the beach, but for anyone else, I can't sing its praises high enough. A modern, clean, well appointed apartment, plenty of space, a view to die for and a brilliant location... a fantastic family break... we hope to be back again soon and for longer!!
