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.

September 2018

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.

April 2018

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!

April 2018

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.

October 2017

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.

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.

November 2014

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

October 2014

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.
