"Great week at Elowen - our second visit. Took in the Eden Project and lovely walks along thew coast. Dinod at the 'Gannet' and the 'Seafood Cafe' in St Ives - nice food and atmosphere in both places. Find Elowen well situated and well apointed with great view over Carbis Bay.
We'll be back!"
WOW! Fantastic house with fantastic views. We came to Carbis Bay to scatter my late Mothers ashes - she and my Father loved Carbis Bay and it was my Mothers whish that we put her ashes here as it was place they both loved so much.
'Elowen' has made a sad time into a lovely memory for us all. 'Elowen' has everything we could have asked for - We even got lots of sunshine to enhance the views. For a lovely meal try 'The Gannet' on the St Ives road and for lovely pub food you should try 'The Union Inn', Fore Street, St Ives."
"We have had a excellent stay at Elowen, a perfect home with views to die for. All rooms presented to perfection and the kitchen very well equipped. Having visited Cornwall many times over the past years, this has indeed been the best stay to date. We highly recommend the 'Beach' restaurant in St Ives, a classic for all the fish dishes you'd ever want to eat, including their fabulous seafood chowder. Another restaurant we have discovered this year is 'The Loft', also in St Ives. Thank you for an excellent stay!"
"Beautiful, well appointed property. Perfect location for Carbis Bay, and train to St Ives (both within walking distance). St Ives is only a 1-1/2 mile walk along coastal path (as an alternative to train)
Places to eat: Beach bar at Carbis Bay (open all day), Smidgens in St Ives (Delicious crab sandwiches), Watermill at Lelant (pub food) and Scarlft at Lelant (walk-able along coastal path OR via train)
Becks fish and chip shop between Carbis Bay & Lelant is excellent. Also philps pasty shop in Hayle is recommended.
Will definitely stay again"
"Lovely week spent at Elowen. The layout of the house is very well thought out and everything is of a high standard. We are at the Badger, Fore Street, Lelant which was very good for pub food, with beer garden. The Fivehouse in St Ives was excellent for steaks. We visited Padstow, Gardens of Heligan great place, really good Sunday road for £10.00.
If you visit Flambards with kids, we would adviseto take a picnic as food not great. House is lovely would love to return!"
"What a beauty this place is! Location, style with fabulous views, Elowen has given us the best place to spend our holiday. Porthleven's, St Ives and Marazion for St Michael's Mount are all worth visiting, Philips pasty shop Marazion are LUSH! Trengwainton gardens are beautiful to walk around and not forgetting that view in front of you, Carbis Bay beach. It is definitely worth the walk down, one of the best beaches we have been too. I am sure we will be back! We have loved it here!"
"We are blown away by the quality of this property and amenities. You have thought of everything! Just one small suggestion. It lacks a dressing table area in the main bedroom, but can easily overcome this by placing a small stool / chair inside the mirrored cupboard to the left, the shelves there are perfect for a mirror and other items. Isn't this in a perfect location! For other guests, there are 2 secret paths you can get along this road to access Carbis Bay beach, railway and the wonderful coastal walk into St Ives. There saves loads of time. Lovely and warm, a true home from home! We will be back!"
