Carbis Bay Hotel – St Ives, Cornwall
Overlooking one of the world’s most picturesque bays, with its own palm-flanked golden stretch of Blue Flag sandy beach, Carbis Bay Hotel takes prime position on the English Riviera. This summer the world’s leaders will congregate at the 125-acre estate for the G7 summit, such is its wow-factor. There are 36 individually designed rooms in the original Victorian hotel, as well as an array of self-catering accommodation including serviced apartments and beach cottages. Eight timber clad luxury beach lodges are the newest additions with jaw-dropping sea vistas (perfect for spotting seals), direct beach access, hot tubs and personal butler service. For the finest freshly caught local seafood dress up for dining at Restaurant 1894. Down by the sea, the laid back beach club serves a light Mediterranean-inspired menu. On 2 August, the sustainably focused Ugly Butterfly by Adam Handling opens, offering Cornwall-inspired British food. It’s a mere two minute walk to the train station linking St Erth to St Ives – one of the most charming train lines in the UK; or walk two miles along the beautiful coastal path to St Ives.
