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!

Lovely accommodation, everything was catered for. Clean and comfortable.

We loved our stay at Fisher. Lodge was incredibly spacious and well equipped with the bonus of the hot tub. Location is great and about a 15 minute walk across the dunes to the beach. Would love to return.

Fabulous accommodation in a stunning location. The luxury chalets are nestled in dunes and can barely be seen so are quite and ensure great privacy. We loved the hot tub to relax in after a busy day sightseeing. En-suite bathrooms in every room was lovely making it perfect accommodation both for families or groups of friends. Location was great for seeing St.Ives, Carbis Bay, Penzance and many fabulous beaches. Would love to come back!

Location was fantastic . Great to be so close to the most amazing beach and the little cafe was handy. Hot tub was fab - used it every day House was very well equipped. Had everything we could possibly need. It was immaculately clean which was reassuring in the Covid era! We would definitely return to this property. A fantastic week.

The lodge was impeccably cleaned exactly as described and very well equipped. The situation is fantastic the most amazing beach 5 mins walk albeit quite a steep decline to the seafront . Strongly recommend a stay here.

We loved our stay at Sandy Acres. Terrific location, well hidden at the end of a track and a 200 metre walk to the impressive beach. The property exceeded our expectations - very modern, clean and contemporary - although the whole timber-framed building did sway during the 50mph winds on our last night! Hot tub used most days. Would definitely re-visit. John
