From secluded coves to miles of sand Cornish beaches offer so much.
Beaches St Ives Porthgwidden 16 July 2016 1 Matt Jessop 1

Porthgwidden Beach St Ives

Everyone needs to go to St Ives and we recommend that our guests catch the train from Redruth for a unique journey. Apart from the Tate, the Barbara Hepworth Museum and all the other small shops and galleries no trip there would be complete without a trip to one of it’s beaches. Porthgwidden is a small sheltered sandy cove but very popular with families. Seasonal dog ban on this beach but great to take your dog to out of season.

Perranporth Mattjessop

Perranporth Beach

Dog friendly all year around with great surfing opportunities this long sandy beach is always popular with our guests. The famous Watering Hole Cafe/bar is open all year and is right on the beach offering great food and music events.  Seasonal lifeguards.

Gylly Beach

There’ s something for everyone on Gylly Beach.  Sand to build castles in, sea to splash in, rock pools to explore, cafes to eat in and all sort of watersports available from kayaking to paddle boards. Gylly Beach Cafe makes the perfect spot to eat all day long and is one of our favourite places to have a sundowner on the decking overlooking the beach. A very popular safe family beach with seasonal lifeguards.

Happy Kayakers

Get on the water

Hire anything from a small motor boat to a sailing cruiser to a kayak and explore the wonderful estuaries of the rivers around us. You can hire boats of all sizes from many different venues. Some of our favourite days out have been on our kayaks launching from the Helford, Mylor or Loe beach. More recently we’ve been exploring the North Coast, on occasions accompanied by seals and Frenchman’s Creek on the Helford with Koru Kayaking who are perfect hosts with in depth knowledge of the waters around them.

Grebe Beach Helford

Sunbathing on the Helford

South facing sheltered beaches surrounded by lush trees, our favourite is Grebe Beach close to the village of Durgan with calm estuary waters it’s a must for wild swimming throughout the year.  Take time to drop into the Ferryboat Inn for some of their famous Helford River Oysters.


Surfing for all

Surfing for all. You are never too young or too old to start surfing and there are lots of activity providers around to help you.  One of our favourites are Global boarders who will coax you up onto the waves whatever your previous experience. There are numerous surfing beaches to explore, mostly on the North Coast and many are served by fantastic beach cafes so you can enjoy a long day out. Many are dog friendly throughout the year such as Perranporth and parts of Gwithian.

Godrey Beach Matthew Jessop 30 May 2016 1

Seal watching at Godrevy

Godrevy is a part of a long long beach that reaches all the way to Hayle with great surfing and kite flying opportunities.  Take binoculars to get closer to the grey seal colony of around 30 but sometimes up to 80 seals which can often be seen on the beach at Mutton Cove. Autumn is the best time to see the pups. Walk from Godrevy to Mutton Cove and then return back to Godrevy Cafe for a lunch or afternoon tea. There are a number of different access point to this long beach including one at Gwithian which also has a great beach cafe.
