This was such a lovely place. Everything for a comfortable quite lux stay. Cleanliness was very high and instantly felt at home, and slept well. There were many lovely walks in the area, with beautiful scenery . The beach was close by (10 mins walk), a steep dune though down to the beach. Wonderful to have the hot tub especially in winter.

December 2021

We all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year at FitzRoy. We were so happy and relaxed there, that we wanted to and were lucky to be able to extend our stay by one day. The house in terms of cleanliness, equipment and facilities provided were excellent. It was lovely and welcoming to see a christmas tree all decorated and lit up on arrival, also saved packing our tree and decorations. Also providing the basic essentials of tea and milk, made our arrival easier. The Hot Tub was a lovely addition in winter, when it was too cold to swim. There was so much to do in the area, Hayles long beach is so beautiful, and the area aroung Godrevy Lighthouse, made a lovely and fairly easy walk. We were happy that despite being the middle of winter we had lovely walks every day which the intermittent rain could not spoil. Hayle beach is about 5 - 10 minutes walk for the fitter ones in our group, for the older not so fit in the group, it was more like 15, due to the steep dune down to the beach. Having supermarkets close by was very helpful.

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!

Good space for 6 adults, very clean and good kitchen equipment. I saw how thorough the hot tub cleaning was, watching other recently vacated lodges being cleaned ready for the next occupants.

The Fitzroy totally exceeded our expectations. Everything was perfect, really well equipped. The beds were so comfortable too. All of us had an amazing relaxing time, we literally parked up on Friday and except for a walk to the beach, we never moved the cars until we left on Monday! We all had the most amazing time, 5 adults 2 children and the dog. Thank you so much.

We absolutely loved our stay here, the property was spotless,superbly well equipped and in the best location just a few minutes walk to the Sandy beach but amazingly quiet and secluded with just a few other houses around. We are already booked to come back next year!

Quiet, clean, relaxing. Spotless inside and out. We will return. Thank you.

We had a lovely holiday at FitzRoy-Sandy Acres. It was extremely clean and well presented spacious contemporary holiday home. Inclusion of Nespresso machine, Nutra Bullet and plenty of pans, utensils and crockery for six was provided. Other extras including a hairdryer was welcomed. We will be definitely returning in the future.

Stayed for our honeymoon, unfortunately the property let itself down in some key areas. Wasn’t clean, no bbq, lack of “luxurious” touches for the price. The actual property was lovely and is in a wonderfully quiet location. We will not be travelling back to these lodges and will holiday elsewhere in the area.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are sorry to read your feedback and sorry that we had not been aware of your concerns at the time. We would always expect that guests arrive to their chosen property to find that it has been cleaned to a very high standard, but if that was not the case, we would do everything possible to put that right for you. We can only apologise if any areas had been missed and having now received this feedback, we have followed up on this with the cleaner. We would also like to apologise for any confusion over the BBQ. I can see that one of my colleagues advised that there was a BBQ at the property when in fact, as described on our website, there is a designated area with a block-built stand for disposable barbeques there. The disposable BBQs are not provided. We try to ensure that properties are priced accordingly, taking into account many factors such as the location, views, size of property, number of bedrooms, style of decor and additional facilities like hot tubs or swimming pool for example. This property had been priced accordingly when we last inspected it, but a lot can change in a short time, so we will check this on the next inspection, and we have passed on your feedback to the owner. Thank you for taking the time to send in your review. Tanya, Customer Services

Great holiday great company to deal with.

The lodge was fantastic, it was extremely clean and in a wonderful location. The hot tub was amazing and was maintained daily. We had a brilliant time and we will definitely be recommending this lodge to friends and family and we are hoping to visit again in the future.

The accommodation was superb, could not want for anything else.

A truly wonderful place to stay! Hot tub nights in the middle of the sand dunes - what’s not I like??

No complaints at all. Only happy memories. Definitely will be booking again in the future.

We all enjoyed our stay at Fitzroy.

nice spacious and clean lodge in a quiet peaceful and private location.

Great location dog friendly property, close to the beach and all the amenities. Wonderful hot tub! Close to A30 so great location to visit all the places in Cornwall! Will book again in the future!

Great house - very high spec finish. Loved it. Great location too...
