We very much enjoyed our three nights at Thurlestone Guest House. The room and en-suite were spotlessly clean and comfortable and the breakfasts superb. It is in an excellent location with sea views and convenient for St. Ives and an excellent base for travelling to other places. The coastal walk to St. Ives is a great experience with wonderful views...

We enjoyed our stay at this B and B which is located in Carbis Bay, a short distance from ST. IVES. The availability of parking is a great bonus in this challenging location. Mandy and Gary, the owners, are wonderfully friendly and helpful. They do a great job with the breakfast .
