If you are looking for rejuvenation, Viking will calm your spirit and nourish your soul. It’s all about barefoot luxury, where a minimalist Scandinavian style and approach creates an open plan, light-filled living space. With three calming bedrooms and three spacious bathrooms, you won't be short of space in which to relax and unwind. Rinse off sandy toes after an early morning stroll across the beach when your only company will be your four legged friend and the first surfers of the day.

Plentiful with both colour and space, the indoor and outdoor social spaces make Viking great for families or a group of friends to make cherished memories. A 10 minute stroll will find you on the three miles of golden sands at Sandy Acres beach, where a picture is worth a thousand words. It even has its own surf school and yoga classes, these are silent sports, none require an engine and your reward comes in the form of special moments of connection with nature. In particular the lushness that surrounds Sandy Acres seems never ending. Cleverly designed with the environment and its immediate landscape in mind, Viking blends into its surroundings and light pours in through the large bi-fold doors. The wooden decked area is a wonderful spot to sink into the hot tub after a day having fun in the rolling surf or raise your glass to good times, as you watch the last of the days sun slip down behind the sand dunes.

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.
