Staying in Carbis Bay

near St Ives in Cornwall at


"The perfect sanctuary away from all the hustle and bustle."


Borthalan House is a traditional, large Cornish town house, set in its own grounds, with free parking and Wi-fi. Located in the sleepy village of Carbis Bay, which is a short walk from the picturesque Cornish town of St Ives. We are perched on the hill above Carbis Bay beach, which is a blue flag beach, with views across the whole of the expansive St Ives Bay and the north Cornish coast beyond.

We are a family run guest house, with a reputation for the Cornish 'maniana' spirit, for you to enjoy your visit with us.


We now offer a new advance purchase rate on all our stays which provides great savings to our guests. When paying the full balance at the time of booking you have the best rate guaranteed with no booking agent and only our set of clear terms & conditions.

Bookings that fall in Covid Lockdowns:

Our terms & conditions set out the free cancellation periods for bookings made directly with Borthalan House. If we are required to temporarily close Borthalan House for any reason, or if you live in a lockdown-affected area your booking is safe. We will work with you to modify your stay dates to another time of your choosing, no matter which rate you booked on or how soon you were due to visit. If the new dates are on sale at a lower rate, we will refund the difference; and if they are at a higher rate, we will request you to make a top-up payment.
