"The location is fantastic, two minutes’ walk to the beach, two minutes to the train station to take a train to St Ives which is MUCH easier than parking and cheaper! You can walk to St Ives to (or run) even with the children, a nice steady walk rewarded by a tea and scone at the end!
The accommodation has outstanding views of the beach/St Ives (fireworks at New Year), showers were out of this world (hard to get out of once in!), all the utensils/white goods were high end, had everything you could ask for. My husband and children found the TV’s with sky Q a huge bonus for films and sports on lazy afternoons! I made use of the washing machine!
The beds we found extremely comfortable and cosy, the older girls LOVED their bunk beds!
The welcome pack (sparkly wine, apple juice etc) was a lovely welcome and needed after 6 hours in the car! Checking in was simple and straight forward and was wonderful to be able to get into the property a few hours early.
We had the best 4 nights away and can’t wait to return!
"Having always stayed in a caravan in Cornwall or tent, we opted for luxury this time. I can honestly say it was exactly that, it was stunning from the minute you walk in the door, nothing was forgotten! From arrival snacks, lovely thought. Fully equipped kitchen with even a washing machine! The house/apartment was immaculately clean as well as having brand new / high end quality appliances!
The best part of the house was by far the stunning view!
One and only criticism, motion senses in the bedroom at night, bit bright when they go off with any slight movement.
Would absolutely highly recommend this place and the Carbis Bay holiday team, from booking, arriving, and leaving. Perfect in every way. We will definitely be returning! Thank you, x
"Gwel An Chapel was absolutely fantastic, it had everything we needed and more! The view was stunning and we spent most evenings enjoying it. The welcome pack was a lovely touch and enjoyed by all of us.
We often caught the train into St Ives as it was cheaper and easier than driving and parking. The beach is 5 minutes away. It is a very steep hill but worth it for the blue flag beach.
We would definitely stay again!"
