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.

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. Check out our blog post on Wild Food Walks in Cornwall to find out more.

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!

Great location with wonderful accommodation. Perfect holiday!

We absolutely loved our stay! The lodge was beautiful and the location was perfect for what we wanted. We will definitely be returning in the near future.

Lodge is equipped to a high standard and hot tub is wonderful.

An inventory would have been helpful for us as you literally do not need to bring anything equipment wise.

Would return again. Note that Gwithian Sands is beautiful and unspoilt. However access to the beach is not for those with mobility challenges. Steep sand dunes and journey to beach.

We recommend Fair Isle to anyone who wishes to enjoy easy access to the beach and have the enjoyment of a high quality, luxury house that caters for a very well thought through open planned living arrangement to share.

Very nice modern well appointed lodge in a great location we loved it.

Amazing break, perfect location close to the beach and the accommodation is of the highest standard. We would love to return.
