Beachbreak Chalet

Beachbreak chalet
1 of 22
Beach Rental -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Gwithian, Cornwall, England
Traditional wooden beach chalet nestling in the sand dunes in the towans at Gwithian Sands. 'Beachbreak' is the ideal location for a relaxing holiday or a great base from which to visit Cornwall's many attractions.

The chalet is on a small family-run site with fantastic sand dunes right outside the door. A safe haven for kids to play and grown ups to unwind.

A fifteen minute stroll through the dunes brings you to 3 miles of golden sand and fantastic surf, which forms part of St Ives Bay and features Godrevy Lighthouse, made famous by Virginia Woolf's novel.

Parking is conveniently located immediately adjacent to the chalet.
Electricity is via £1 coin meter.

Guests must provide their own bed linen and towels.
Dogs are welcome (apart from July and August) for an additional charge of £25 each per week.

Second year on the trot we have been here and half way through the week the kids were saying "We are coming again aren't we". We even managed some lively weather even if it was a bit cold for body boarding. Very family friendly and there was even kids from last time staying so they spent the week with some...

Management response:

Great to have your repeat custom and always a bonus when the kids meet up with past friends. Hopefully see you again next year :)

Wonderful venue for our weeks stay very kid and dog friendly. Our daughter was in tears leaving all her new friends and wanted to stay forever. The kids spent most of the week running up and down the dunes. Giving us peace and quiet to read and relax. We all want to go back again thanks for a lovely stay.

Management response:

Thank you Steve. It was lovely to meet you and the family. It will be next April before you know it ;)

We have been using Beachbreak Chalet for around 7 years, and we never tire of returning. Very reasonably priced Great little cosy Chalet beautifully decorated and really homely, set by the side of sand Dunes, a 10 minute walk across the Dunes brings you to a 3 mile soft sandy beach... This beach is amazing one of my favourites even...

Management response:

Thank you Lynn, Gary and Georgie. I look forward to seeing you soon.

About the neighbourhood
The three miles of golden sands of Hayle-Gwithian beaches are within a two minute drive, or a fifteen minute walk through the dunes. Gwithian and Upton Towans (a large site of special scientific interest, with abundant flowers, unusual plants and bird life - is ideal for nature lovers), providing hours of safe play for children and beautiful and relaxing walks for adults.
Getting around
A car is not essential if you are single or a couple back packing and want to travel lightly. You are virtually on the Cornish coastal path and 3 miles of golden sand... a walkers/surfers paradise! Local buses and trains can assist with exploring further afield. A car will give you complete freedom to explore and not restrict you to a timetable.
