Location and Getting to Mordros Carbis Bay
Mordros is close to the pedestrian path from Carbis Bay to St. Ives (join down the steps at the end of Parc Owles). To get to St. Ives is a pleasant 25 minute walk. St. Ives is a picturesque small fishing town with a thriving centre, harbour, 3 beaches, 3 Banks and many restaurants and coffee shops. It has been a mecca for artists over many years because of the quality of the light. St. Ives Tate was built a few years ago and joins with the Barbara Hepworth Museum which includes her workshop and Sculpture Garden to attract art lovers from all over the world - which is why there are also many Art Galleries.

St. Ives boasts a bus station with the best view in England and in the daytime there are frequent buses from it to Carbis Bay, if you do not want to walk back.

Mordros looks down on the single track railway line that links St. Ives with St. Erth and the main line to London, the North and Scotland. It is a picturesque ride which fortunately escaped the Beeching cuts and is now busy in summer with a large Park and Ride in Lelant for day visitors. If you travel by train to Cornwall with luggage get a taxi to Mordros from St. Erth. Not all the branch line services stop at Carbis Bay Station and, although walking to Mordros is easy from there, it is not recommended with Luggage and there are no Taxis.

Carbis Bay Beach
The Carbis Bay beach is a large stretch of golden sand with a stream running down to the sea in the centre. It has a beach shop and small cafe. At very low tide it is possible to walk round the headland on to Hayle beach but this is only once or twice a month The path from Mordros although pedestrian at the bottom goes through the small beach Car Park but then straight on to the beach. The distance is so short that changing on the beach is not necessary and the beach is a very safe one for paddling and swimming, has RNLI Lifeguards in season and has been awarded a Blue Flag for cleanliness.

Disabled Access Mordros is not suitable for wheelchair users or people with impaired mobility. Pedestrian access is up a slope and steps which lead to a patio adjacent to the entrance door. Height is a price paid for a good sea view.

Parking Two small cars can park on the sloping driveway. Parking on the slope is not feasible for large cars (e.g. Volvo V70) because of the change of gradient. There is level parking for one large car in front of the slope. Roadway parking is available on Parc Owles itself.
