The property

Compass Point is set into the hillside overlooking one of Cornwall's premier beaches and across to St Ives Harbour. This apartment, set to the rear of the building, is thoroughly modern and welcoming and makes for a superb romantic retreat or family get-away. The feature gallery bedroom has character, built into the eaves with limited headroom, and boasts sea views over the bay. The spacious twin bedroom on the ground floor also has a sea view. Both the kitchen and bathroom are smart and chic and the bright living room with dining area has a contemporary gas effect fire to offer all-season cosiness and views out to sea from the small balcony. To the front of the property is a paved area - an ideal spot for relaxing with a glass of something chilled at the end of the day. The large shared sun terrace at the front of the building offers spectacular views and is perfect for enjoying a romantic sunset.

St Ives is a mere 20 minutes walk along the coast path, or just a few minutes journey when travelling on the one-carriage coastal train. This sublime destination has much to see, with bijou shops and galleries, including The Tate, peppering the narrow winding lanes. There is a myriad of restaurants, eateries, cafes, bars and traditional inns, all arcing the pretty, sheltered beach and tiny picturesque harbour. Golfers will be keen to experience the challenges of West Cornwall Golf Course, which is close by. Carbis Bay Beach is just a three minute walk away, with its mile long stretch of glorious sandy beach. Gwithian Beach offers miles of golden sand overlooking Godrevy Lighthouse and leads to Lelant estuary, where the surrounding bays are renowned for surfing and snorkelling.

About the location

CARBIS BAY

St Ives 2 miles ; Hayle 3.5 miles ; Penzance 8.5 miles

Just a short drive from iconic St Ives, the seaside town of Carbis Bay is best-known for its beautiful stretch of pure white sand. With turquoise waters and sheltered conditions, the beach feels almost subtropical and is the perfect spot for a good old-fashioned day by the sea. The beach is also home to the Ocean Sports Centre, so if sunbathing is not really your thing, why not hire a kayak or SUP and get out on the water instead. Or why not treat yourself to a Spa day at the boutique hotel which overlooks the beach and has a fabulous terrace where cocktails can be enjoyed in the Cornish sunshine? Carbis Bay has a small range of local shops and restaurants as well as a fish & chip takeaway and railway branchline. The train journey from Carbis Bay into St Ives is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the country.
