Compass Point is a modern and superbly well equipped seaside holiday property located in the prestigious Compass Point complex which has a prime seaward facing position in Carbis Bay and is just a short walk down to the golden sands and clear turquoise waters of Carbis Bay Beach. The surrounding area is dominated by National Trust headlands and dramatic coastal cliff walks with the South West Coastal Path right on your doorstep.
Guests also have easy access to the stunning communal sea terrace of the Compass Point complex which has panoramic sea views towards St Ives harbour in one direction and Godrevy Lighthouse in the other and this allows outside dining and sunbathing. There is also a private car parking space which is big enough for 2 cars which is a very rare feature and the close proximity to the small railway station gives guests the great option of leaving the car and taking the very popular tourist train into St Ives, taking just a few minutes along a single track and which follows a wonderfully scenic path along the coast.
