Beaches

Gwithian Towans, Hayle Towans and Godrevy offer three miles of golden sands and the most dramatic coastline stretching across to St Ives Bay. At low tide, with such a vast amount of sand, there is plenty of room for everyone – even horses getting their daily exercise. There are large areas of rock pools and intriguing caves which are great for kids to explore. Visit in the evening and you may be treated to a stunning sunset. Read more about Gwithian Towans and other beaches in the area on our blog. It's also worth visiting the rugged cliffs at Hell's Mouth, which is just a 5 minute drive away, where you can park your car for free and enjoy a delicious cream tea in the cafe.

St Gothian Nature Reserve

What was once a commercial sand quarry, this site has since been declared as a nature reserve. The habitat has been improved with the addition of a large pool and other smaller pools which have been fenced off, creating a safe place for wildfowl and waders. Perfect for bird watching. Dog walkers are asked to keep dogs on a lead so as to not disturb the wildlife.

Walking

From Gwithian, you can walk the South West Coast Path all the way to St Ives, and experience some beautiful scenery along the way. Pass through Hayle and Lelant before finally arriving at St Ives Harbour. The walk takes approximately 6 hours so be sure to bring supplies!

We have had another super holiday at Churchtown Farmhouse. A beautiful house that is very big with a lovely garden, and in a super location for beaches, surfing, and nearby attractions such as St Ives, St Michael’s Mount and the Eden Project. We would definitely recommend a stay here and hopefully will be back again in the future.

A beautiful house, spacious, an absolute pleasure to stay there.

What a lovely property! This house is beautifully decorated with everything you could need, warm and homely and in an ideal location. The outside area has been designed just as thoughtfully as the inside with the storage shed and shower. We loved the fact that the garden is gated and securely enclosed so our grandchildren were able to play out safely. We had waited a long time for this holiday and being together as a family in such a lovely place was the icing on the cake. We will definitely come back again and would highly recommend to anyone.

Such a wonderful house, looking forward to going back for Christmas this year.

This house has everything you could possibly need for a family holiday, plenty of room to not feel like your on top of each other. We have had the most amazing family Christmas holiday all together playing games and making memories. We even stayed a few extra days to enjoy New Year’s Eve together. We didn’t want to leave. Some sad faces whilst packing up to go home. We have even booked for next Christmas.

Just returned from a fabulous stay, farmhouse was well equipped with everything needed & was very cosy & comfortable. Easily housed all of us without getting under each others feet. Located a short walk from beach & Godrevy for superb views & a short drive to other local beauty spots/beaches. Thank you

Gorgeous House. Beautifully decorated and presented. Very spacious for large groups and families. Stunning location with accessible walks and beautiful scenery on the doorstop. Our holiday was perfect made so special by staying in this stunning property.

Churchtown Farmhouse is an absolutely fabulous place to stay with friends and family. We had our first proper family get together after lockdown here and we enjoyed our stay immensely. We loved the location in the conservation area and the ability to walk through the campsite to the beach is a great touch and very convenient. The property is fab and they have thought of almost everything you would need for a great stay! The furnishings were top notch and the space was amazing. The location is perfect being in a village with a local pub and walking distance to miles of beach.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The house is beautifully decorated and had everything we would need plus the extra touches of fresh flowers and a lovely welcome pack. Only a short walk to the beach and the Jam Pot cafe over the dunes or the pub just down the road. We were able to make use of the campsite shop which is only a short stroll and had everything at a reasonable price. We would thoroughly recommend Churchtown Farmhouse.

We have had a super week’s holiday at Churchtown Farmhouse. The house was large, spacious, beautifully decorated and very well equipped. It is in a lovely location; perfect for walks and the beach, and only a short drive away from St Ives or other parts of Cornwall. We will definitely be going back!

Churchtown Farmhouse exceeded our expectations, we had a fantastic holiday in a delightful house.
