Magical family memories can be made at the Carbis Bay Hotel & Estate. With a total 125 acres to enjoy – and a fifth of that given over to our huge beach – this is the perfect playground for little ones.

Most popular among junior visitors tends to be our private, 25-acre Blue Flag beach, whose golden sands support game-playing and endless running. The sea is almost always calm and gentle, too, so bathing is safe.

There’s also a heated outdoor pool and plenty of gardens to play in, while The Beach Club Restaurant has kids’ menus and readily-available ice cream. There are film nights and regular, hosted activities in our seasonal Kids' Club. And, if more leg-stretching is needed, the South West Coast Path runs through our estate and it’s an easy, scenic 25 minute stroll to St Ives’ galleries, shops, museums and harbour.

Family Accommodation

The Carbis Bay Estate offers a variety of accommodation suitable for families large, or small. The leafy Carbis Valley has Cottages with dedicated gardens and private parking, and also Valley Suites, both of which are a short stroll to the beach and main hotel facilities.

Our coastal properties including Beach Houses all directly overlook the beach or the Luxury Beach Lodges which have beach gardens and/or roof terraces with hot tubs, and direct access to the beach.

Finally, our managed Coastal Properties, all located close to the Beach and Estate offer perfect family accommodation. All coastal properties have full use of the Estate and Spa facilities.

Our reservations team will be delighted to advise on suitable properties for your family requirements.
