    “Lovely holiday home.”

    great location. great for dogs. house was very spacious. only thing to point out is, there are sudden drops after the car park opposite, they are well signposted, but dont let small children run off unsupervised in that direction.

About the location

GWITHIAN TOWANS

Gwithian Towans (also known as just "Gwithian") is an outstanding beach-side location situated overlooking St Ives Bay and St Ives itself in the distance. The location, so close to the sea, makes it ideal for families, with three and a half miles of sandy beach, rock pools and caves to explore, acres of marram-grassed sand dunes (known locally as 'towans') - and some of the best surfing in the country. There's also a shop/Post Office and a pub in Gwithian itself as well as several beach cafes.

The beach is popular with surfers as the swell coming in from the ocean provides good all year round surfing conditions. Common seals are a regular sight near the beach and the area is a breeding ground for colonies of seabirds such as guillemots, razorbills and cormorants. The Sunset Surf beachside café and bar overlooks the beach and is open all year, serving locally sourced, seasonal ingredients wherever possible and nearby the Jam Pot Café and Shop, a former 19th century coastguard lookout, is where you can enjoy home cooked snacks and be distracted by the stunningly natural views out over St Ives Bay. Lifeguard cover is provided from Easter until the October half-term holidays.

You can walk for miles along The South West Coastal Path which passes close by and there are some good cycle routes in the area too.

You really are spoilt for choice with the enormous variety of attractions on offer in this part of Cornwall. The seaside town of St Ives, with its galleries and restaurants, Land's End, Penzance and St Michael's Mount (NT), as well as the Helford River on the South coast with its inlets and creeks, are all within an easy drive.

Note: This property sleeps a maximum of 7, including babies and is best for a maximum of 6 adults.
