The Gannet is situated in the pretty village of Carbis Bay, a mile from the beautiful harbour town of St Ives in Cornwall, and nearby award-winning Blue Flag Carbis Bay Beach.

Inside you’ll find boutique bedrooms with a comfy restaurant and bar area. Designed to be a relaxing, stylish place to enjoy good food and a welcoming atmosphere, The Gannet has quirky interiors with all the style and finesse of a boutique hotel, while also offering a warm and friendly place to pop in for a catch-up or a bite to eat.

A good night’s sleep is what you can look forward to at the Gannet. Each room has its own unique identity and feel, with bold décor and signature interiors.

Rooms vary from ‘Cosy’, ‘Quirky’, ‘Family’ or the ‘Spot the Gannet’ rooms with stunning sea views. With unusual prints and cool coastal hues, the rooms are designed to give you a unique Gannet experience, where Sleepy Gannets can relax and enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep after a busy day exploring Cornwall.

The nearby Carbis Bay Estate’s C Bay Spa is available for all Gannet guests and offers complimentary entry for a morning or afternoon to all Gannet guests between the months of October to May.

Scrumptious dishes make up the menu at The Gannet, which features classic British recipes with a modern twist. The Gannet’s hearty menu has been created by the Rosette winning chef at the Carbis Bay Estate. Each dish developed to fit with our home-cooking style menu, which is packed full of locally sourced ingredients from the finest Cornish producers.

We’ve teamed up with The Gannet to offer one lucky Coast reader the chance to experience a stay there by winning this month’s special competition prize.
