Escape and relax on St. Ives Bay in one of our Gwithian holiday cottages. Whether you come for the sensational surfing, the breathtaking cliff-top walks or simply to have fun on the sands with the kids, this lovely corner of west Cornwall promises a holiday to remember.
A short drive from St. Ives, this small conservation village features a lovely old church, handful of cottages and fields all around. You can walk to the beach where you'll find cafés for daytime snacks and also to the local pub, while shops, restaurants and other facilities are all on hand at Hayle just inland.
Life's a beach for Gwithian cottage holidaymakers!
Expect three miles of sweeping sands, playground for all kinds of sports from sand yachts and kite buggies to windsurfing and sailing. Learn the basics of catching a wave or improve your techniques at the Gwithian Academy of Surfing. Little ones will love beachcombing the many rock pools and caves for crabs and other mini creatures. Or plan an evening down on the sands, watching the sun set, glass of bubbly in hand. At the back of the beach is a fascinating nature reserve of dunes and grassland, home to all kinds of flora and fauna such as butterflies, newts and skylarks.
Summer sun, winter breaks or in between - try a holiday let in Gwithian for your next trip to Cornwall.
