Dulse - Sandy Acres

£1275 - £3356 per week

Previously known as Finisterre, a calming Cornish oasis awaits you at Dulse; enter the Scandinavian style open plan living space and everyone in your group will instantly relax as fresh sea air washes through the open bi-fold doors. Swap your shoes for flip flops, put your beers in the larder fridge to cool and let your troubles melt away as you slip into the hot tub on the private deck. On cooler days, snuggle down in front of the glowing woodburner after a day's outdoor pursuits.

Dulse is family friendly where everything has been thought of for one and all, encouraging you to embrace the finer and wilder things in life. Designed to reduce the impact on the environment and with the hardy surfer in mind, Dulse, which is a type of seaweed, is the perfect base for chasing swells and riding waves. Sandy Acres beach with its surf school is a short walk away, plus the golden sands of the Gwithian, Hayle and Godrevy beaches are all within easy access. Dulse is the perfect destination for those seeking either outdoor adventure or rest and relaxation either way the best days begin and end on the beach.

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.


Foraging is popular in Cornwall, and Gwithian Towans offers an ideal place to give it a go. Foraging lessons are available, during which you'll discover everything from how to make seaweed crisps, to picking edible flowers. It's certain to be a fun day out for the whole family.

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.


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 had a wonderful time at Dulse in Sandy acres. A perfect location for our family of 6 (and dog) to explore the natural beauty of Cornwall.

A lovely location and house. Great jacuzzi. To make it even better - would benefit from providing a few extra basics for guests.

I highly recommend staying at Sandy Acres... we loved it! Accomodation was spotless! Hot tub cleaned every single day, even when it hadn't been used. Beds extra comfy, cosy and warm. Location was perfect, minutes walk from the beach where we saw lots of seals.

First time ever visiting cornwall, already recommended to friends! I will be back to stay at Sandy Acres.

Thank you.
