Birthday Weekend in St. Ives Cornwall

November 5th is my birthday so we decided to go away for a long weekend, originally we had looked into going abroad but ideally if it was going to be crap weather we didn’t want to be stuck in our hotel rooms, so we decided to look for a house down Cornwall way, therefore if it did rain at least we could relax at the house being a bit more sociable.

We spent a while looking around the internet on various holiday rental sites and eventually we found this little gem on Owners Direct, the house is in Carbis Bay, St. Ives in Cornwall with what only I can describe as a bloody amazing view, I love the sea and this was just perfect, the whole house was amazing too, no expense spared, a great big 60″ TV with Bose surround sound perfect for playing FIFA 12 on the Xbox too!

Here’s a few pictures of the place, most of the time you hope a place will be as good as the pictures, this was in fact better!

  1. Happy belated Birthday Darren! Hope Google delivered you some good presents haha!

    That house looks fantastic! Was it just the 2 of you there, or did you go as a group?

    Cheers Rich, originally there were meant to be 6 of us going but only 4 went in the end.

  3. Ahh, big house for 4 of you! At least there were less of you to argue over the TV haha!

    Looks very nice, think you’ve just pointed us in the right direction for our group holiday next year, cheers! I didn’t think we’d get something as nice as we had last summer (a log cabin in the middle of nowhere near Taunton, but recently furnished, with a hot tub!). Views weren’t as nice as the one you stopped at though!!

    Yeah the only thing this place needed was a hot tub, where was it you stayed? Wouldn’t mind checking it out.

  5. – it was gorgeous, and the woods were particularly spooky at night but made for interesting hide and seek haha!

    That looks pretty cool too, we’ve stayed somewhere before with a hot tub, a log cabin but smaller, , made me want a hot tub at home 🙂

  7. That apartment looks amazing! The views are spectaculer.
