The Carbis Bay Estate
has all the ingredients for the perfect Cornish wedding, event or celebration. Situated in the West of Cornwall, in the Bay of St Ives, our 125-acre Estate is home to an award-winning five-star boutique hotel and spa, coastal properties including apartments and cottages, beach houses, luxury lodges and, beach suites - directly on the sands of our privately-owned 25-acre Blue Flag beach.
The multi-award-winning C Bay Spa enjoys a secluded location with its well-loved facilities and relaxation zones. Above the year-round heated pools stands the Pavilion, uniquely positioned for treatments or even an intimate wedding ceremony. From there, various verandas and terraces float down through subtropical gardens towards the beach – and the South West Coast Path passes through the Estate on its way to St. Ives.
Central to everything is the Main house, a white-walled landmark designed by the celebrated Cornish architect, Silvanus Trevail and erected in 1894. Inside, gilt mirrors and chandeliers are complemented by modern, chic interior touches. The Main house, with 40 individually furnished rooms and sea-facing suites, is home to the Sands, a fine-dining restaurant boasting two-AA-Rosettes and featuring Cornish produce, and the light and airy Conservatory with far-reaching sea views. Equally stunning is the Godrevy Room for events or, private dining, the peaceful Silvanus Trevail Lounge and the Boardroom for conferences and meetings.
The Ocean Venue, part of the recently completed £15m investment in the beachfront, provides a grand wedding and event venue with panoramic ocean views along with additional restaurant and bar and further accommodation with 8 stunning suites all with ocean-facing balconies. 12 areas of the Estate are licensed for ceremonies including the Beach Hut on the sands.
