Just outside St Ives in gorgeous, sandy Carbis Bay, Una St Ives is a collection of wood-clad lodges and luxury villas, each with chic coastal-inspired interiors, a cosy log burner for chilly evenings, a well-equipped kitchen and a private garden or terrace with hot tub. When guests don’t feel like cooking, there’s award-winning Una Kitchen. Led by head chef Glenn Gatland (previous experience includes Hell Bay on the Isles of Scilly and a trio of restaurants on Tresco), it’s known for Mediterranean-inspired, wood-fired cooking. Stand-out dishes include Cornish Sea bream with pea and lemon risotto, slow-cooked pork belly with Parmesan polenta and, of course, delicious hand-stretched pizzas. New for 2023, Una Lido is a relaxed and family friendly space in which to spend your days. You’ll find the best of the lido lifestyle: laid-back tunes, snazzy poolside cocktails and informal street food inspired dining. And, of course, there’s the lido itself: a heated outdoor pool, where you can float, unwind and soak in the beautiful natural light. Don’t forget the spa, too, with its sauna, steam room and must-book pampering Elemis treatments.
From £480 for a three-night stay and unlimited use of the lido and spa
