“Fabulous!”
Reviewed 27 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed a short break in this lovely apartment. Really nicely finished and lovely decor, and everything you'd need to make your stay comfortable. The view is really outstanding, and the location is excellent. Only a short walk down to the beach, and St Ives is a short hop on the train if you don't want to drive. We actually felt that for St Ives it's a better location, as it's quiet and secluded, but really easy to get there when it suits you. Would definitely stay again, but next time we'll stay longer!

“What a lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 3 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Clean,nodern and spacious apartment with a lovely view over the bay. Own parking space which is very helpful. To be honest It's very hard to find any faults in the apartment or Carbis Bay/St Ives.
Worth taking a short 10 min drive to Sennan Cove. Frequent buses and 1 train per hr in to St Ives. Bus is about 10 mins and train about 5 mins.All for only a couple of pounds. If you don't fancy St Ives and fancy either pub grub or a meal in there is nice pub about 5 mins walk away next to a large Tesco's. The apartment has all that you would want for a lovely time. The added extras include slippers, robe and toiletries which add a lovely touch.
The beaches are very clean and sandy.Lots of other beeches within walking or driving distance.Will definitely be going back and honestly feel that this apartment couldbe our holiday for some years to come.

This is a nice one bed apartment situated in Carbis Bay. It is well-furnished and there are great views of the sea and coast. It's a quiet-ish area (one or two pubs and restaurants nearby), but a 20 minute walk into St Ives proper, or a few minutes on the train, which stops just a few minutes down the road from the apartment. There is wi-fi and a large tesco about 10 minutes walk up the road, which is handy for supplies. Carbis Bay beach is also 5-10mins walk down a relatively steep incline.

We had one major gripe, which I'm not sure the owners or agents can do much about. We were pleased to see that the apartment would accept pets; we have a small Tibetan Terrier. However, Carbis Bay beach would only allow dogs between 5am-8am. It was galling to see the beach practically empty on several days when the weather wasn't so good, but we were unable to take the dog there for a walk (and the apartment had a strict rule about not leaving the dog alone in the apartment). We soon realised that this was a new council regulation that applied across all St Ives beaches. The only beaches where dogs were allowed were quite inaccessible. Frankly this put a major dampener on our holiday overall and we doubt we'd go back to St Ives while these regulations are in place.

But if you are without a pet, you'll find Fernhill to be a good base. A few niggly things for management to consider: the bed was quite small, it seemed to be less than a double; we were looking forward to a glass of wine or cup of coffee after the long drive from London, but there was no wine or fresh milk on arrival (not a big deal, but the ad suggests this would be waiting and it would have saved us going to the shops immediately after arriving);it also took a while to get the thermostat working (and we had to endure a pretty stuffy apt for the first few days).

But these are minor issues. The apartment was generally fine, but we would be unlikely to come back while St Ives maintains its ridiculous policy towards dogs on beaches.
