Portland is a lovely property which has been finished to a high specification and is situated in a quiet location. The hot tub was excellent and we particularly liked where it was positioned away from the other lodges. The staff at Aspects Holidays were very good and always very helpful.

September 2023

We really enjoyed our stay at Portland. The interior was modern and clean, and had everything we needed. This particular lodge is the first one on the property and set a little apart from the others, which added a little extra privacy. The hot tub is situated away from the other lodges which added to that. The gorgeous Hayle Sands are a 15 minute walk away and provided plenty of space to sunbathe, play games, surf or bodyboard. The waves were great! Sandy Acres is a good base to explore south west Cornwall as many interesting places to visit are within 30/45 minutes’ drive. Thoroughly recommended!

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!
