Oystercatcher is a relaxed and contemporary coastal bed and breakfast with stunning views over St Ives Bay. We have four unique bedrooms with solid wood beds and furniture, each with private en-suite facilities. All rooms have a flat-screen TV with FreeView and DVD player and free wifi is available throughout the house. Tea/coffee making facilities are provided with fairtrade teas, coffee and hot chocolate, along with fresh milk and complimentary Cornish biscuits. We include a substantial full Cornish breakfast or other options, which is cooked by your host, a professionally trained chef, to give you the best start to the day.

The house is the perfect base for those wishing to visit St Ives as well as explore West Cornwall. It is situated within a 5min drive or 30min walk of the bustling harbour town of St Ives, and the beautiful blue flagged beach at Carbis Bay is a short walk away. There is parking available on-site to those who book the Master or Loft bedrooms with sea-views. Free on-street parking is available within less than a two-minute walk.

With our comfortably appointed en-suite bedrooms and relaxed atmosphere we are sure that you will have the most enjoyable of stays with us.

We regret that we are unable to accept children and pets.

If arriving by car, from the A30 follow signs for St Ives A3074 and the brown sign for St Ives Bay Accommodation. You will drive through Lelant and up into Carbis Bay. When you pass the CostCutter Store on the left in Carbis Bay, keep going. You will pass the turning for Polmennor Drive on the left-hand side and we are 200m further on the same left-hand side. Our driveway is immediately after the Oystercatcher B&B signpost in front of the house.

If travelling by train, although Carbis Bay is the nearest station, it is a 15 minute walk up a steep hill to Oystercatcher that would be difficult with heavy luggage. We recommend that you alight at St Erth on the mainline from London Paddington to Penzance and take a 5 minute taxi ride or take the beautiful scenic branch line from St Erth to St Ives and take a taxi from there. We can arrange a taxi for you.

If arriving by coach, alight at Longstone Cross in Carbis Bay and we are about 300m further along the road on the same left-hand side.

Newquay airport is approximately a 50-minute drive away and Exeter airport is approximately 3 hours away by car.
