A boutique Cornwall stay by a beautiful bay close to St Ives, with access to a nearby award-winning spa, full Cornish breakfast and an optional dinner

Imagine an impossibly beautiful sandy beach gazing across sparkling waters and a huge sweep of coastline. Here, you have Carbis Bay near St Ives, proud holder of a raft of accolades, including Blue Flag status and a member of the Most Beautiful Bays in the World. At The Gannet Inn - a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner - you're a short stroll away from all this and more. With boutique interiors, an AA rosette awarded chef, access to Carbis Bay Hotel nearby and more, you'll want for nothing here.


The lighthouse which inspired Virginia Woolf's novel can be spied across the bay, while nearby St Ives is home to a Tate Gallery and myriad other artists, past and present - all have been drawn by the magical light and even more magical scenery.

You'll find exquisite boutique bedrooms, an inviting restaurant - guided by an AA Rosette winning chef - and a lively bar where you can mingle with locals and fellow guests alike. Even better, you can avail yourself of the award-winning spa, pool and Jacuzzi at sister hotel, Carbis Bay, nearby – perfect after a day wandering the coastal paths.
