Breathe in the beautiful sea air and soak in the calm at Fastnet. Expect gorgeous interiors, plenty of space and a fabulously sun-drenched wrap-around deck with your very own hot tub. The master suite even has bi-fold doors that open straight out on to your own private balcony for two. If you can drag yourself away from the beautiful interiors, why not explore nature’s playground by taking surf lessons or enjoy endless adventures through the dunes, which are a pebble's throw from your door.

At the end of the day relax with a chilled beer or in the bubbling hot tub, while you plan tomorrow’s adventure. Laid back and lovely, incorporating a real relationship with Gwithian towans and the sea with plenty of surf on the huge stretch of the beach below, Fastnet is for guests looking to cut free from city living.

Things to do in Gwithian

Surfing

With great surf all year round, it's no wonder it's a popular surf spot with both locals and visitors. Perfect for beginners and advanced surfers, Gwithian is an ideal place to learn and progress. With a local Surf school operating from here, first timers will be up and riding in no time. 

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

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!

Fabulous place for a quiet and relaxing escape from the world, .. just what 2020 needed!

Really was the most precious of time, everything that could possibly be needed is to hand in the kitchen, wonderful comfortable beds, spacious decking with lovely hot tub, the accomodation is a holiday in itself and there could be no reason to leave if it wasn't for the glorious span of dunes and beaches right on the doorstep. Cakes at the beach cafe are superb, and lots of change so always something new to try. Perfection!

Beautiful location, stunning lodge. Would visit again and again!

Wonderful stay as always in beautiful Hayle. The beach lodges are gorgeous, luxurious and beautifully maintained. The owners have literally thought of everything, Aspects were incredibly helpful and friendly.

Thanks all!

Great holiday. Staff were very helpful and answered all our questions and chartered for all our requests. Will definitely stay again.
