Welcoming and made a relaxing atmosphere in which to enjoy the holiday

Tips:

If you are fit the walk along the coast path into St Ives (ask Mark for directions) is lovely, and gives a good view of the town. The introductory talk at the Tate is really worth going to (45 mins). Besides the Barbara Hepworth Museum the Penlee Art Gallery at Penzance is also really worth a visit (and has a nice cafe)!

We loved our stay at The Mustard Tree! Mark and Anna were great hosts and made sure that we had a great stay. Breakfast was delicious and made to order.

Tips:

Cornwall is such a lovely area. We had friends who come every year so we walked many miles every day. St Ives is a very cute town. We loved going to Evensong at Truro. Had a delicious last dinner at La Casita in Carbis Bay.

Excellent breakfasts with plenty of choice. Extremely comfortable beds and well equipped rooms. Quiet location but almost on coastal path. Those who enjoy walking can walk into St. Ives centre (about half an hour) which avoids the difficult parking. There is also a bus which runs past the house and you are also very near local train station. Several places to eat in Carbis Bay itself; we would recommend La Casita just down the road. Not exactly budget but wonderful and authentic.

Tips:

If you like walking you can easily walk from the house to Porth Kidney - very peaceful sandy beach. On the other side of Hayle you can park and walk along the coastal path and see the seals which cover a quiet beach at Godrevy. Further afield in the opposite direction a lovely walk along the cliff path can be enjoyed from Zennor to Gunnard’s Head where you can be refreshed before circling back to Zennor. A longer but very enjoyable walk along the coastal path can be found from Cape Cornwall to Sennen or even Land’s End.

Warm and friendly welcome from Mark who was really helpful with our enquiries about local taxis and restaurants and also with buckets and cleaning solutions for the car when bombed by seagulls! Excellent Breakfast every morning (thank you Anna). We only wished we could have stayed longer.

Tips:

Just ask Mark ! He has a wealth of local information and is able to make great recommedations. Taxis locally are cheap and reliable. If youve never been before St Ives is very steep and hilly - make sure you're wearing shoes you can walk in !

Our stay at The Mustard Tree was an absolute delight! Mark and Anna are incredible hosts. They really go the extra mile to make sure their guests have the most enjoyable stay -- the room was cosy and spotless, the cooked breakfast was delicious and uses local produce, and Mark suggested great sightseeing routes and restaurants to us. Their hospitality is one of the best I have experienced.

Tips:

The local Spanish tapas restaurant just 10 min walk away (as everybody recommended) was excellent -- really tasty paella and tapas and very friendly staff. Carbis Bay is a quieter beach than ones in St Ives for those who want some peace and quiet, while it's only a few minutes by train or a pleasant 30-min walk from St Ives where you can find lots of local shops and seafood restaurants.

We found the staff very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast all that you could ask for with plenty of choices.

Tips:

We have been several times before and find the local bus service is best for going into St.Ives-parking can be difficult! We like going to the Tate and the Penlee Museum & Art Gallery. Barbara Hepworth's studio is another interesting visit. On a fine day Godrevy Lighthouse has wonderful views. For meals we go to Beck's restaurant and The Old Quay House- both good!

I enjoyed my stay at The Mustard Tree very much! Mark met me at the train and drove me to the B&B, which was very nice because the walk to the property is a steep one. The breakfast was excellent and cooked to the guest's own desire. We were even given fresh strawberries! Thank you so much, Mark and Anna, for your wonderful hospitality.

Tips:

I recommend eating at The Digey Food Room in St Ives. They have the best scones in Cornwall (I've tried many, and firmly abide by this opinion!), and also make lovely breakfasts, quiche and soups, homemade bread, salads, and desserts. While you are in Carbis Bay, a walk up to Knill's Monument is a must. The views up there are spectacular, and the history behind the monument is interesting.

Lovely Guest House in a perfect location in Carbis Bay. Outside the hustle & bustle of St Ives but only a 3 min train ride to it from the nearby train station. Mark & Anna could not have been more welcoming and helpful during out stay and we thank them for that. Rooms are very tidy and clean with complimentary tea & coffee provided, and replenished each day. Rooms are cleaned each day and fresh towels provided. Very nice breakfast served each morning with an excellent choice. Overall, a little gem of a Guest House and we would have no hesitation in recommending it.

Tips:

The Gannet Inn (almost opposite) has a lovely restaurant. Visit The Brewhouse cafe for a great place to relax with an incredible view over St Ives.

My sister and I stayed here for a wedding with my infant son and we couldn't fault it. We had such a lovely time. The hosts were very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. Some B&Bs turn their noses up when you travel with children, this one couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. They provided a lovely spacious, clean travel cot for my son (even though I had forgotten to request one) and a baby bath too. They even offered help with lifts down to the wedding in Carbis Bay because it was raining. Breakfast was scrummy too- fresh, local ingredients and cooked to order. 5 stars!

Tips:

Have a paddle in the water down at Carbis Bay and treat yourself to a cream tea in the Carbis Bay Spa Hotel.

Anna & Mark were the perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome. Our room was immaculate and very comfortable with a lovely view over the beautifully kept garden. There is a good selection for breakfast and the full English set us up for the day. We will definitely be returning.

Tips:

We recommend la casita restaurant which is only a 5 min walk, excellent food and great atmosphere. Also the badger inn a five minute drive. Recommend booking in high season though. The coastal walk into st.ives has views to die for but it's a bit hilly in places so good footwear is a must. The mustard tree is ideally based with lots of amazing views and beaches on your doorstep. Perfect location.

Lovely welcome. Anna very kind and courteous host. Breakfast wonderful but felt the times could be extended to give guests more flexibility to plan their days . We feel that the bedroom could have done with a reading lamp over each bed rather than just one lamp in the middle of both beds. The sink proved small in the bathroom and it was a little difficult to fill the kettle/ wash. The cabinet above the sink jutted out too much so you could not put your head over the sink to clean your teeth. The cabinet would possibly be better replaced with just a mirror on the wall. Overall facilities were wonderful and we would definitely recommend The Mustard Tree. We would definitely stay again.

Tips:

We would recommend La Casitas restaurant just around the corner for your evening meal. This establishment is well situated as Carbis Bay railway station is just around the corner so once you have parked your car at The Mustard Tree you can leave it in the car park for the duration of your stay and use public transport as a means of getting around.

Anna and Mark are Very welcoming and friendly. They have a large, modern home set back from the road with an attractive garden. our room was very comfortable, warm, clean, a good size and had a view of the sea. The towels were large and thick. There is a good sized car park. The location is brilliant, being so close to the coastal path into st Ives and walking distance to carbis bay railway station (one stop away from st Ives), plus it is situated on a road with a bus route into town. The breakfast menu is good and varied and the food was lovely. A really good place to stay.

Tips:

St Ives is a lovely town but not good for taking cars into as it was once a fishing village, not made for traffic! Being able to get into town easily, leaving the car at the mustard tree is a real bonus. There are numerous bars, pubs and restaurants. It does get very busy in the summer so worth booking tables in advance. Carbis bay is stunning and within walking distance.

The location is great. We found this easier than staying in St Ives as there is ample packing. We walked both ways to St Ives and it was a nice walk. The area is very scenic with beautiful views across Carbis Bay. Mustard Tree is lovely, bright airy rooms with a fridge stocked with juices, chocolate bars and fresh milk every day. Breakfast is huge. Mark and his family went over and above board to look after us. If I were to visit the area again, I would definitely stay here. I wouldn’t even bother to look at the other hotels in St Ives as it is congested and parking is a nightmare. There are a couple of nice pubs on the way down to St Ives if you want to stop for a drink break.

Cleanliness is of a high standard and everything was conveniently thought out in the bedroom. We particularly liked the fridge which meant we could enjoy fresh milk, rather than fiddly little plastic pots, with our morning tea. The garden which surrounds the property is beautiful.

John is a very good chef who prepares breakfast whilst Anne is always there at hand offering outstanding service. Her garden looks beautiful! I have been to Mustard Tree a few times and will happily return. I highly recommend this little haven to all of my friends and family. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay at St Ives, Carbis Bay :)

Tips:

I would highly recommend the Bean In vegetarian and vegan restaurant in St Ives. There is a lovely atmosfere in St Ives harbour with many cafes and restaurants and a very good shopping with various shops and art galleries. Trips to Minack Theatre and Land's End are a must. There is lots to see at St Michaels Mount near Marazion and you would enjoy coastal walks to Zennor, Cape and Levant mines.

Very friendly, very calm and cosy and spotlessly clean. We had such a warm welcome and every need was accommodated even though we were only staying for one night. Fabulous sea views across to Godrevy Lighthouse were a total bonus! And thank you for welcoming our 3 year old daughter so warmly too.

Tips:

it is a steep walk down (and back up!) to the beach, and when we arrived there ewas a wedding on at the hotel which seemed to be the only place to eat (I might be wrong..). So we ended up driving to St Ives. This was not a problem for us at all, but something to note if you have not been to Carbis Bay before. Having said that, the beach is absolutely dreamy so well worth the effort!

When we come to Cornwall this is where we always stay, Anne and John are always so welcoming and the rooms are very comfortable especially the bed in room 6 which has the most fantastic view of the bay, our favorite room. The decor is just right not to fussy but enough to make it homely. John's full breakfast is a real treat.

Tips:

The walk to see the seals at Godrey is my favorite, we saw about 70 seals last weekend, such a treat. Cape Cornwall is a nice place where there are also seals, and the drive back to St Ives past Zennor is lovely. Kynance cove by the Lizard is very atmospheric. Our favorite restaurant is Peppers in St Ives which we always book before we come.The duck confit is delicious, it has a good atmosphere and the sataff are very pleasant.

This is a homely place to stay with very welcoming hosts in Anne and John, it really was like a home from home. Anne is very knowledgeable about the local area and beyond with recommending short or long walks, places to eat etc. Breakfast was no trouble as the choice is very wide plus there maybe specials not on the menu, Anne will let you know that morning. Nothing was too much trouble and I have no hesitation in recommending The Mustard Tree.

Tips:

Read the welcome pack (in every room) as there is a lot in there. The walks have fantastic views but is a little hilly so if you dont mind taking your time all are well worth it. Walk to St Ives in 20 mins (thats very quick but you could) or take the train as the station is 5 minutes walk away. There are three beaches within 15 minutes walk and even in July at least one has very few people on it. Its a great base for car touring from too because when you return your still only 10 minutes from the beach for the evening.Fantastic.

We can heartly recommand the Mustard Tree. When we arrived Mrs Hammond offered us a nice cup of tea in the beautiful salon. She took her time to chat with us and gave us very friendly explications about the area. John Hammond prepared us every morning a very good cooked breakfast. There was a big choice.Besides other good things we loved a lot the 2-3 different fruits every day like blueberies, strawberries, cherries, melons etc. We stayed 5 days in room number 9. I loved the red coloured bed sheets. Anne and John Hammond were during our stay very attentif and friendly. It's a good area with excellent restaurant around and it's easy to go by bus or by train to St.Yves. We had just a wonderful time there, thanks a lot. Romy and Gabriel from Switzerland

Loved our stay with Ann and John. John does a brilliant breakfast! Ann is a lovely hostess and always has advice on where to visit and things to do. Location was perfect, Carbis Bay is a 4 minute trip by local train to St Ives and actually is more chilled out so not as crowded as St Ives itself so was nice and relaxing. You can walk to St Ives along a lovely coastal path, takes about 1/2 hour at most with amazing view of the bay and harbour, well worth the effort.

Tips:

We went to a few restaurants in Carbis Bay which were all great including La Casita - Spanish tapas and more, Becks - great fish and chip place, and the Bean Inn - lovely little vegetarian. We also went a couple of times to The Gannet which is literally over the road from The Mustard Tree and that was great food. Things to do, Carbis Beach is lovely and when we were there it was quiet. Eden Project is a must see as are the lost gardens of Heligan. St Michaels Mount is good and you can get a bus there and around the area very easily and is recommended if you don't want to negotiate the very narrow roads yourself, there are buses to loads of places.

Second time we have stayed here and each time has always been of a great experience. Anne and John are so welcoming and The Mustard Tree has such a homely, cosy feel to it. The bed was extremely comfortable, as are the pillows and the rooms are tastefully decorated. There are free drink making facilities in the room and a mini fridge where you can purchase additional juice, bottled water, chocolate etc, all reasonably priced. The room was spotlessly clean and we stayed in room 6 which had an outstanding view of the bay, so if you like a room with a view, book this one. Breakfast was again of excellent quality. There is a breakfast menu to choose from. I had the English Breakfast and toast and marmalade (locally produced and the best marmalade ever) There are also plenty of other options like yogurt, cereal etc that you can also have alongside the Breakfast menu. Anne and John work as a great team and this reflects in the relaxing ambience of the guest house. I would rate this 6 stars out of 5! It is fabulous value for money, ran by a 'people person' couple and is set in a lovely location. I look forward to staying there again soon.

Tips:

On both occasions that I have stayed here they have been for a one night stay to attend a family get together so unfortunately I have not really had the opportunity to go out and about and explore but I do know that it is on the cards for the future as St Ives is a very beautiful part of Cornwall and I look forward to returning to see the sights. Some of my family moved here from the West Midlands and I can understand why. It is very pretty and a very friendly place.

We had a fantastic week at The Mustard Tree. Anne is a perfect hostess and will give you lots of handy advice, and places to go off the beaten track. The room was superb, and it was a great idea to have a fridge for the daily fresh milk. Ample wardrobe space and good large shower (Room 1) We did not get a chance to speak to John, apart from a little "hello" occasionally. I think he's a bit shy... BUT, he makes the best breakfast! All locally sourced and super tasty. Cannot praise the place enough. If we return to the area, we shall not hesitate to stay. Thank you both.

Tips:

Lovely restaurant down the road called 'La Cassita' probably one of the best meals of the week. We also tried 'Becks' in the same area but would not rate it. It's okay, but just overpriced fish & chips and felt as if I was sitting in a canteen. Fabulous Sunday lunch at The Cornish Arms, Hayle. A few miles down the road.

The Mustard Tree is a very nice place to stay for some days or more in the St Ives region. I was heartily welcomed with a cup of tea in a very informal setting. The (single)room met the discrpition and was situatated to the calm back front. "Full English Breakfast" was delicious, as surely may be the alterntatives, too.

Tips:

If you want to visit St Ives as it really is, be sure to be an early bird to l0 am at the latest, or a "late bird" in the later afternoon,/evening, when the day-tourists are already gone...

We have just returned from Cornwall after a 5 night break for a wedding, we stayed here for two nights along with the rest of the wedding party. Alls I can say is Brilliant, we all thoroughly enjoyed the stay here, it's extremely clean and guests are so well thought of, Anne was welcoming from the moment we got there, with tips on where to go, public transport links even down to a bit of weather forecasting, which was spot on I might add. The next time we visit we won't hesitate to try and book here before any other places. A heart felt thanks to Anne and John.

Tips:

A short walk down to the beautiful carbis bay. You will also be set up for a good portion of the day with the excellent breakfast, and Johns scrummy fried bread.

We came down from London to stay at The Mustard Tree for a wedding taking place in Carbis Bay Hotel. We were offered the option of staying at the hotel, but when we arrived at our B&B, we knew it was the right choice. The B&B was clean, very well situated and our hosts were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Originally, I was to come alone, but on the day a friend wished to stay with me. Our hosts were very accommodating and changed my room to a twin room at short notice. Overall we had a very pleasant stay for a good price and yummy breakfast included. I would certainly recommend it to anyone staying in the St Ives area.

Tips:

The B&B is a short drive away from the glorious Carbis Bay Beach, the town of St Ives and Padstow. Alternatively, all these places can be explored on foot as beautiful costal trails are also close by.

Highly recommend!

Tips:

The Mustard Tree is a 5min walk from the train station which is by the beach so the B&B is about 8 minute walk from the beach. St Ives was a 5/10min drive.

Tips:

Travelling by car the B&B was easy to find with its large noticeable sign on the main road into St Ives and is pleasantly situated, not far off the main road at all, at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. We were at no disadvantage staying outside St Ives. The B&B guide in the room (+leaflets) provided suggestions/advice of what to see and do.

A lovely relaxed atmosphere and the rooms have what you need for a B&B. John and Anne are lovely and welcoming and The Mustard Tree is located in an accessible part of Carbis Bay to get you into St Ives. Parking at The Mustard Tree is available at the back which is a bonus. A cot and highchair are available which helped as we had our granddaughter with us. The only problem for me was the shower was very small and not much room for moving to wash, nothing major though. Would definitely recommend The Mustard Tree with the reasonable prices for rooms. We were made to feel so welcome. We had a great stay.

Tips:

The Atlantic restaurant over the road from The Mustard Tree is a must for food. Delicious and good service. The walk into St Ives from The Mustard Tree is well worth it as the views from the roadside are beautiful. There are regular buses on the main road and the train is every hour. Note that the walk back to the Mustard Tree from the train stop is steep and with a buggy can be quiet a struggle. The Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth Museum are good to visit and outside The Tate you can watch the surfers unless you can surf which you will be in the sea! The beaches are spotless and everything to see and do is within walking distance. St Ives is stunning the views beautiful.

A very professional and clean guest house. It is clear that Anne and John care about their business and they demonstrate this through the cleanliness, attention to detail and superb breakfasts. The room we had was a bit on the small side with not much storage space and a tiny ensuite which may cause aproblem if guests are staying for a few days but was adequate for us staying just for 2 nights. Anne was the sociable one out the two and would provide tips on eating out and placea of interest to visit.

Tips:

Becks fish and chip restaurant down the road is superb and well worth the money. We also enjoyed our coastal walk to st ives and also the other way to Hayle, which we think was about a 7 mile round trip. We also enjoyed eating at the Cornish Arms pub which provides plentiful home cooked meals.

The room had everything we needed and breakfast was superb every morning. We had an amazing view of the sea from our bedroom window which was wonderful to wake up to. Thank you John and Anne we really enjoyed our stay.

Tips:

There are a few restaurants close to the B&B which serve lovely food. St Ives town is a 5 minute drive Away or u can get the bus which is just outside the B&B. The beach is a 10-15 minute walk which is downhill. We had a car and was able to go to many places such as the Eden project and at Michaels Mount.

As a hyper-critical person by nature it is a great thrill to write this review. My two night stay at the Mustard Tree was unequivocally the best hotel/B&B experience I've ever had. I've been all over the world in everything from five star hotels to very humble dwellings and this beats the lot. John and Ann have simply walked through the guest experience and catered for everything! Even fresh milk (!) in the room fridge and Wifi everywhere. It is so close to perfect that it should be used in a training video for all aspiring hotel and B&B owners. Two complaints: in the full English breakfast the sausage was not great. And don't walk there from the train with your luggage - you'll need climbing equipment. I'll stop now. The Mustard Tree is eye-wateringly brilliant!

Tips:

If coming by train call ahead. I'm sure you can get a lift to the Mustard Tree.

Anne was a splendid host, very friendly and always generous with her smiles and welcome. I really enjoyed the breakfast every morning and John's fried toast! My only regret is that I was unable to try the fresh croissants on the continental breakfast.

Tips:

The B&B is located in a more residential sort of area and it is quite a walk to St Ives. If you enjoy walking, this is a very scenic route along Carbis Bay. However, the walk to the B&B is rather steep down to the bay, so do be aware of that. It would be very convenient if you have a car, however if you don't, there are local buses running to Penzance, St Ives, Marazion and nearby towns about 200m from the B&B, which is quite convenient. Just be aware that the buses are usually about 5 minutes behind the schedule printed on the bus stop.

A very comfortable room which was kept very clean. A warm welcome from Anne and John who gave us a much needed cup of tea before showing us where everything was. A friendly and helpful service throughout our stay.

Tips:

The "La Casita" restaurant is a short walk away and served really well cooked food from an extensive menu. The buses are frequent, just a short walk from the front door and it was good to leave the car behind.

Location pretty good if travelling by car and need to park somewhere accessible to St Ives itself. It's about a mile and a half and five or ten minutes on the bus. When buses dwindle late in the evening (after 1038) I guess a taxi would be about £7. (Now I've spent a few days in St Ives I know one or two little places to park easily (if you're prepared to walk back up steep hills!)) Otherwise an enjoyable and well looked after two night stay. Was travelling solo.

Tips:

There are bus time tables freely available in the Mustard Tree amongst the tourist information brochures. I arrived when the owners were out on a hospital appointment and their friend who was minding the shop was a bit unaware of bus times. So I got to the stop, about 100 yards towards St Ives, around 15 minutes earlier than I needed. Could have relaxed for another 10 minutes over the welcome cup of tea and chat!

This B&b was a perfect pick for our Easter stay. Located near St Ives a 30 minute walk on the coastal foot path. Located 5 min walked to beach. We had a lovely sea view from our room. Breakfast was included each day which included a delicious cooked breakfast or there were a few other options. The hosts were very lovely and helped in every possible way regarding restaurants, things to do etc.

Tips:

Go for dinner at the Sea cafe resturant in St Ives. Check out Becks fish and chips in car is bay. Go see Godrevy lookout, located 15 min drive. Beware you have to pay for parking at lots of the sights. Go to St Michaels mount and Bedruthan steps.

Our stay with Anne and John at the Mustard Tree was lovely. It is in a very peaceful location and the beach at Carbis Bay quite simply is the most beautiful in the area. It felt like a blessing to stay just outside of St Ives which got pretty busy. We felt like we had our own space.

Tips:

The Seafood Cafe in St Ives is delicious with gorgeous service. Also highly recommend getting the beach view from the Tate Modern cafe, with a glass of wine and a board of local cheeses... well it was pure delight. The coast walk towards Zennor was good for the soul.

Anne was very attentive and helpful. I found the Mustard Tree very warm and inviting and enjoyed staying with you very much. The room was well appointed and comfortable and nicely decorated. I will definitely come back again!

Tips:

For anyone visiting Carbis Bay, a walk on the beach is a must as it is lovely, even in horrible weather! There are many beaches in St Ives as well and one can experience them all by taking a walk along the coastal path from Carbis Bay to St Ives. Make sure you are wrapped up with a decent coat though in certain seasons, as the rain and wind is strong!
