Gwithian Holidays

Gwithian is a coastal village situated in a conservation area and close to National Trust areas. Here you will find a friendly local pub, three cafes offering delicious refreshments and a surf academy. Being just a short drive to the harbour and beach towns of St Ives, Penzance, Mousehole, Porthleven and Marazion, self catering holidays in Gwithian make for a fun packed holiday for all!

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!

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.

Seawhispers is a little gem ! perfect location and the property is tastefully decorated, deceptive in size and cosy.

September 2018

Great location, two minutes walk to the most beautiful beaches...perfect!

August 2018

Great location, fabulous views, comfortable chalet.

April 2018

A perfect seaside house which was an ideal base for a magical holiday. We can’t wait to return.

April 2018

A beautiful cottage close to the beach. Very homely and you do feel settled in from the minute you walk through the door. Looking forward to our next stay in the very near future.

March 2018

Great place to stay. Brilliant location. Nice to hear the see in the evenings from inside the cottage. Well equipped and very comfortable. Great cafe nearby. Fantastic beach and easy access to the coast path. Hope to be back soon

February 2018

Lovely place if weathers bad very scary but overall lovely place

December 2017

Lovely little chalet, good base to drive from, would suit a family with children, I don't think it would be ideal for couples to share because of the way the bathroom is located, but enjoyed our stay.

September 2017

Sea Whispers is a perfect beach house amongst the dunes at Gwithian. Views of the sea from the lounge. It's easily found with excellent directions from Aspect Holidays. Its clean and very obviously lovingly cared for by the owners. It is extremely well equipped, with two outside seating areas. Lovely beaches, and walks along the cliff paths to see the seals basking in the coves near Godrevy. Cafes nearby, The Sunset Cafe, The Jam Pot and on the beach The Hungry Horse. Godrevy Cafe sell amazing lunches and have a foodie evening on a Thursday. We visited The Rockpool Cafe two evenings, delicious food, lovely staff. All within walking distance of Sea Whispers. A memorable holiday, one we would highly recommend.

July 2017

It states 'suitable for families', but it really is not

No room to setup a travel cot - bathroom is not off the master bedroom as stated - it is off the twin. because the bathroom is off a bedroom it ruins bedtime routines and once children are in bed adults cannot shower.

Kettle pours water everywhere and burns

Doors are hanging off in kitchen and poorly fitted

smoke detectors have such a bright green flashing led they were irritating

No room for children to play

Complete confusion over where to put bins - clearly a problem with other guest as stated in the house documentation on site, and still not rectified - I had to travel to the local tip to dispose of my waste - like the washing up, not something I want to do on holiday

The dishwasher is the size of a microwave and cannot fit large plates or a meals worth of washing up - the argument was that it is not stated in the description. Suitable for families + holiday should not equal washing up

Parking if you have a family car is ridiculous and causes problems with the neighbours

Brown water runs from the taps for a while every time you use them which ended with a burst water main on the final day - not aspects fault but added to the 'holiday vibe'

The worst place I have stayed in Gwithian in 10 years + and not the cheapest

Last year I stay 100 yards away in a bigger chalet that was £100 cheaper and in better order / sensible parking / dishwasher

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your feedback. We are so sorry that this property did not meet your expectations. We would always wish for every guest to have a great time here and feel that they have the best property to meet all needs and requirements. One of the team has since visited the property and been in contact with you, as there had been a number of things for us to investigate. Somehow, an error had occurred somewhere along the way, with the description details transferring over incorrectly, so had stated 2 showers; this has now been amended, with all facilities now being advertised correctly. We still advertise this as being a perfect seaside retreat for either a family or two couples; but this would not necessarily mean that a property would fit a travel cot, or have facilties such as stairgates, highchairs etc; rather that the location, proximity to beaches, number of people that it sleeps and bed types available, suits a family. We are very sorry if our statement that it would suit a family was felt to be misleading in anyway, that is certainly not what we would intend. Not every property has a dishwasher provided; this one has a very small one installed, but we do not advertise it, given its size; for those that find that a dishwasher is an essential, which we can completely understand; we would not want someone to book this property based on there being one advertised in the decsription, as it would not suit everyone. Following our inspection, we also found that the property had recently had new cladding fitted; this had warped, cracked and caused the paintwork to not be in the best order, and caused the issue with the doors. The water, I'm afraid, we couldn't look into at that point, as it was running clear when we visited, but sounds as though it had been an issue affecting the are that South West Water addressed at the time. We are so sorry that things had not been to the usual standards that we would expect, and I hope that teh team have been able to reassure you that this is not the norm, and everything has since been addressed. Thank you for getting in contact. Tanys, Customer Services

Excellent location,Gwithian is absolutely beautiful. Fantastic for walks with the dog. Nicely decorated and everything you need for your stay is supplied.

May 2017

Amazing location with the beach and Sunset Surf a stone's throw away. Simple but comfortable property that we'd recommend if you want good value for money given the unbeatable location.
