Beachcroft Coastal Retreat
Ranked #45 of 102 St Ives B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 15, 2011

Although we stayed here only one night, it was worth it as we felt so relaxed. Beachcroft is designed very well. With wonderful showers, White and Company soaps, hardwood furniture and sea views, it is perfect and restored my faith in British B&Bs.
From the moment you arrive you are made to feel comfortable - we were given ice water and tea while the owner got the keys and we did the paperwork. This is the first time I have received such excellent service. The owner even helped us arrange for us to leave our luggage in St Ives before we got the train.
The hotel is situated just above Carbis Bay. This beach looks wonderful but walk to the beach and don't drive as the car park at the beach is very full. There is a beautiful walk along a wooded path to St Ives. It is only 15 minutes but I would not recommend it for those less steady on their feet. The road way takes slightly longer to St Ives but is slightly less scenic.
The owner of Beachcroft recommended a restaurant in St Ives called Black Rock which is definitely worth going to. The mussels with chorizo are fantastic.
Although it is quite expensive, you do pay for what you get and this is definitely worth it.

Just returned from a few days in St. Ives staying at The Beachcroft Coastal Retreat, 5 star luxury but still with a lovely homely feel. The decor and setting was beautiful straight out of a Mr & Mrs Smith brochure. But best of all was the warm welcome from Karen & David and one of the best breakfasts we have had in a very long time. Would definately recommend it and fully intend on returning there.

Great standards on all fronts with the attention to the small details making that extra difference.

A short walk to carbis bay and 20 minutes on the Coastal path puts you in the centre of St Ives.

Karen and David are running a little gem of a retreat. Karen has made recommendations on two occasions for food reservations both being beyond expectations . Most recently the Bistro on St Andrew's Street, St Ives which equally matched the Beachcroft experience.

A truly memorable stay

Our stay at Beachcroft was simply super, a great location just a nice stroll along the coastal path to St Ives centre, with wonderful views over Carbis bay. The place was perfect inside, beautifully converted with beautiful heavy wooden doors and furniture, sumptuous bathrooms and perfect taste. The owners could not do enough to help us, advice on where to go for what, including restaurants art work etc. The breakfasts were lovely. Overall a superb B&B, lovely and informal and immaculate.
