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


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. 


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 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.


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.

A lovely location, Ideal for the whole family ??. We didn't want to come home ??????

Wey Up is in an excellent location for a family to enjoy a beach holiday with plenty of body boarding/ surfing. It is a comfortable chalet with all you need to enjoy your time here.

Wey up is situated in a perfect setting, although I can imagine it could get quite noisy when the campsite is open as the garden backs directly onto the camping field. Unfortunately we were disappointed with the standard of wey up, the bedding protectors were filthy, you couldn’t use the washing machine as it was so noisy and sounded as though it was going to explode, the general upkeep of the property was tired. Simple things like the carpets not fitting (being cut over an inch short and held down by nails) the curtains thin and looking threadbare and dirty, the appliances old, dented and going yellow with age.
It’s a shame, as with a little TLC this could be a stunning beach chalet.
On top of the general disappointment of the chalet, we arrived to find that the property hadn’t been cleaned (beds dirty etc) especially at a time when Covid 19 is making us all a little more ‘clean conscious’, Aspects were very good in trying to sort this for us although their hands were tied as to how much they could do due to the fact there had to be a 3 hour time period left between other people visiting, again due to Covid. For the amount of money we paid compared to other properties we’ve stayed in at Gwithian Towans we would not recommend this property.

Thank you for your comments. We are very sorry to hear about this. We would always hope that everything is perfect for guests' arrivals, but on the rare occasions that it isn't, we will continue to assist guests until things are put right. Following on from your concerns when arriving, we understand that everything was addressed at the time and we continued to liaise with you following this incident to resolve everything. We hope that you can see, from all the actions that we took at the time, and since, how seriously we take such feedback. All your feedback has since been raised and noted with the owners of Wey Up, so that they can address any necessary outstanding areas. Finally, we wanted to reassure you that noise from the neighbouring campsite, has never been an issue. We have had a few guests comment on their concerns that it may be an issue, but we have never had any feedback to suggest that it is noisy and not once heard any noise ourselves when we have visited the property. The site and their guests seem to be very considerate and respectful of their surroundings. Whilst we know that you had been very disappointed on this occasion, we do hope that we will be able to welcome you back to Cornwall again soon. Ben, Customer Services

Don't want to say too much as everyone will want to book and then there will be no room for us on our twice yearly visits!

Wey Up is a beautiful beach chalet with a lovely garden in a perfect location!

Wonderful location, comfortable, well equipped chalet, home from home on the dunes!

If you are looking for a holiday by the sea you wont find better than Wey Up. The beach is a 5 minute walk at the most. You can easily not use the car for most of the holiday with fantastic walks on the doorstep along with wonderful cafes and the local pub all serving delicious food.

Just had two weeks at Wey Up. We usually book at Praa Sands but fancied a different location this time. Gwithian beach is amazing as are all the tracks on the dunes for dog walking. Could never get bored walking the 100 yards to the beach for the views towards St Ives and Carbis Bay.

An excellent location for dog-owners with superb walks straight from the doorstep. Made for relaxation and a two-minute stroll means you can sit and watch the waves as the sun goes down!

Best location in the world!!! Perfect decking area for breakfast in the sunshine. Fantastic to have washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher - gives you more time to enjoy the more important things.

We had a lovely week at Wey Up and would definitely recommend the property. It's so close to the beach which was perfect for us having two young boys! The property its self was very comfortable and set up perfectly for families. The secure garden was great too.

Beautiful area and fantastic base to explore from. Very spacious compared to other properties in the area.

This is the best holiday home we have stayed in - fully equipped comfortable and homely - set in the perfect setting - love it

A lovely well appointed, clean, comfortable and roomy chalet. Good amenities, near to the beach and just a short walk to cafes, pubs and local amenities.

We have fallen in love with this cabin, beautiful location and home from home facilities.

A wonderfull, quiet, scenic location, well equiped and maintained, perfect for getting away from it all!

Amazing little secret hideaway. Love it

A perfect family holiday home!

the fact that there is a camp site next door

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments. Wey Up is located in a lovely, secluded area next to the sand dunes of Gwithian. There are a few other chalets nearby and a camp site a little way behind it. It is a peaceful, well kept site with a separate entrance away from the property. A map is available on our website to highlight its location for any guest wishing to check this before booking. Tanya, Customer Services.

What a warm cosy retreat, even in November, brilliant place to stay.

Beautiful property in a unique location - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here with a baby & two dogs!

A gem in the dunes. Wey Up has all the amenities and space of a holiday cottage but it gives you the feeling of a real beach hut/chalet. Lovely sheltered garden which was well fenced to keep the dog in and a super decking area where you can enjoy the sun all day. Just a short stroll over the dunes and you are on one of the most beautiful beaches in Cornwall. A great place for all age groups.
