A boutique Cornwall stay by a beautiful bay close to St Ives, with access to an award-winning nearby spa, full Cornish breakfast and optional dinner


Imagine an impossibly beautiful sandy beach gazing across sparkling waters and a huge sweep of coastline: this is Carbis Bay, proud holder of a raft of accolades, including Blue Flag status and a member of the Most Beautiful Bays in the World. The lighthouse which inspired Virginia Woolf's novel can be spied across the bay, while nearby St Ives is home to myriad other artists, past and present - all have been drawn by the magical light and even more magical scenery. Spend happy days on the golden sand beach and maybe splash out on a Sunseeker yacht for trips around the coast.
