Carbis Bay Estate

This stunning retreat on the Cornish coast is an idiosyncratic English paradise, charmingly furnished with a mix of classic country house style with pops of eye-catching modern design. Guests are invited to lounge around the hotel pool or slip through the resort's private beach access and dive straight into the waves of the waiting Atlantic. The cosy family suites are very spacious and invitingly furnished. For the ultimate deluxe experience, book one of the very desirable beach lodges. Unsurprisingly, the romantic resort is a very popular venue for proposals and weddings.

With its selection of exceptional hotels, the British hospitality group THE PIG has built up a portfolio of truly charming and unique retreats. The hotel on the beach at Harlyn Bay offers far-reaching sea views and has oodles of character. Take your pick from a room in the Main House, the Stonehouse with its own courtyard, or one of the four romantic Garden Wagons that are closer to nature but have all the comforts of the main building. The team has a commitment to home grown produce and a serious love of all things local, which is reflected in the fantastic Cornish dining experience.
