The Ideal Property for a Seaside Holiday on Cornwall's Finest Beach

house

The Beach House is a large colonial-style villa built for a sea captain in 1908. It stands in the finest position with its own private lane and lawns just above the wonderful 3 mile sandy beach of Hayle, and commands wonderful uninterrupted views westerly across St Ives Bay facing the sunset. It is adjacent to the coast path and the special flora and fauna of Hayle Towans - the extensive sand dunes which back the beautiful beaches.

We offer comfortable seaside accommodation for parties of up to 20 with lots of space in this lovely old house. We are open all year, with short breaks available between October and Easter.

How to Get Here

Approaching Hayle from the A30, take a right turn at the roundabout, cross the mini roundabouts by Lidl and continue until you see the petrol station opposite the recreation ground. Turn right here and follow the road through Phillack, past the ancient church and the Bucket of Blood pub, the Haven holiday camp and shop. Now the road veers to the left; ignore this and carry on straight ahead down the private road. Follow the road round and up to the Beach House.

Lots of rabbits live among the dunes and may well come out to keep you company! There is a new steel barbeque, windbreak, beach mats, body boards and buckets and spades, so lots to keep the family busy!

The Beach just below the house is 3 miles long, with the river estuary at our end, and Godrevy Head and lighthouse at the other. In between is Gwithian, which is a famous surfing beach, and has great cliffs and rockpools. At various points along the beach, during the summer, lifeguards keep a watch out for bathers and their safety. Watersports include windsurfing, kitesurfing, canoeing, sailing and fishing. There are lagoons at low tide for safe paddling and the sailing of model boats.
