Sea Shells and Sandcastles Luxury Holiday Apartments in Carbis Bay and St Ives, Cornwall

Boasting fabulous sea views, Sea Shells is just a few minutes walk from the soft golden sands of the Blue Flag Carbis Bay beach, and only a mile from the historic fishing village of St Ives, arguably the most famous sea side town in Cornwall - known for its abundance of art galleries, fine restaurants and choice of golden sandy beaches, sparkling azure seas and its picturesque working harbour (regularly home to families of seals).  St Ives is easily accessed from Carbis Bay along the South West Coastal path, and is just a two minute ride on the St Ives Bay branch line (thought to the be the most scenic railway in the UK); Carbis Bay station is just a two minute walk from Sea Shells.

St Ives Bay has a unique quality of light that provides inspiration to artists, poets and writers all year round. Warmed by the Gulf Stream, this area enjoys its own micro-climate and has a real Mediterranean feel about it; the subtropical plants make Carbis Bay a real joy to visit all year round.     More ………..
