“Fabulous Foxgloves”
Reviewed April 20, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Foxgloves is a lovely modern bungalow situated in a quiet corner of Carbis Bay.The accommodation is spotlessly clean and the kitchen is fully equipped and contains everything you could possibly need if you fancy a trip to Trevaskis Farm to buy fresh ingredients to cook dishes and enjoy an optimistic feast with your family in a very beautiful garden surrounded by flowers. The sun shines in the garden from very early in the morning until Evening.
We like the contemporary and new furniture and it is like being at home.
We strongly recommend this gorgeous accommodation.

“It's the little extras that make this holiday accomodation outstanding”
Reviewed August 26, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We recently spent 2 weeks in this wonderful holiday accommodation. It's a splendid 2 bedroom bungalow on the edge of country lanes, yet within walking distance of the beautiful sandy beach of Carbis Bay. It is all the little extras that make this accommodation so welcoming, a generous basket of goodies awaits your arrival, and the provision of tea, coffee, and everyday grocery cupboard items such as salt and pepper make the self catering accommodation stand head and shoulders above the many other self catering holiday lets that we have visited over many years. The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern appliances there are ample glasses and plates - always an issue when you have children! and the fridge is a very good size - also an issue for the hungry teenager. There is a plentiful supply of OS maps of the local area for walking and the provision of novels and DVs kept the children busy whilst we were cooking! (Tesco is close by if you need to do a big shop).
The property is furnished to a exceptionally high standard, there is a picnic basket for trips to the beach, and the bedrooms are very relaxing and spacious. The garden is beautiful and has ample seating for the summer evenings - we had lovely weather !
The property is within walking distance of the bus stop for a trip to St Ives or down to the beach at Carbis Bay (the walk down is quite steep, but there is ample parking if you need it). You can also walk to St Ives along the coastal path - it is a lovely walk and you are bound to see seals on the way!
We found some excellent restaurants within walking distance, we tried La Casita (Spanish) and Becks Fish and Chip restaurant is outstanding too. St Ives of course has a huge amount of restaurants.
The property is very well situated for exploring the area - the surfing beaches are a 10 minute drive, St Michaels Mount is 20 minutes and there is a lovely walk to an old iron age fort just up the country lanes at the back of the house.
We have 2 very energetic teenagers who found a very good morning jogging route along the golf course and coastal path and found the kayaking at Carbis Bay very good value for money - they have stand up paddle boards to rent too.
A wonderful holiday in outstanding accommodation, I have stayed in lots of self catering accommodation and this does stand out as being excellent - we will definitely be back!

Lovely holiday home, in a peaceful location,clean and tastefully furnished. A short walk to the beautiful carbis bay beach and a short drive to St Ives. Lots of thoughtful and welcoming touches from the owners would definitely recommend!

“Top quality holiday rental”
Reviewed August 7, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The property was very clean and everything from the bedding to all kitchen equipment seemed brand new. Beds very comfortable and a tall fridge freezer really useful for our family of four with two children under 5 ! The garden was well maintained with beautiful flower beds.
The children loved the nearby sandy beach of Carbis Bay ( be prepared for a very long steep walk down and up to the beach). St Ives was lovely to visit and the train ride there was a highlight for the little ones.
