Gwithian Lookout is the perfect place to relax and reconnect amongst the wild, natural beauty of the dunes at Gwithian Towans. Cedar-clad with a wall of glass, Gwithian Lookout offers simple, elegant interiors and is ideally suited for a couple or small group of family and friends.

Flooded with light this luxury beach house is laid-back living at its best. The open-plan living space is all about the view, with vaulted ceilings and large walls of glass to maximise the incredible light and breath-taking scenery. There is a corner sofa and footstool for lounging with a view plus a stylish corner wood-burning stove for cosy nights in. A large picture window to the West captures the beautiful evening sunsets.

The open-plan kitchen is compact but well equipped with beautiful local granite work surfaces. A washed wooden dining table and comfortable wicker dining chairs sit below the lobster pot lampshade providing a comfortable and sociable setting.

Hand-crafted wooden ladders lead to two mezzanine areas providing additional living spaces. With casual seating these light-filled spaces are ideal for reading and relaxing with open-views to the beach and circular windows with views over the chalet rooftops to St Ives.

The three bedrooms offer paired-back simplicity and are accessed from the main living area. The master bedroom with King-Sized bed has double sliding doors that open to enjoy a beach view whilst lounging in bed. Less-is-more in this understated space adorned with carefully curated furniture and benefitting from an ensuite shower room and the luxury of falling asleep to the sound of the sea. A second double bedroom enjoys a large West-facing window and the compact third bedroom has a single bed. There is a shower room accessed directly from the living area.

The large sliding glass doors lead outside to the private terrace finished with a Cornish wall crafted from local stone. An outdoor dining table and chairs make for easy entertaining in this exceptional setting. And an outdoor shower with views of the lighthouse is ideal for that post-surf freshen up. From the terrace the communal grassy area leads to the road and pathways to the beach so you can grab your board and walk across the dunes to one of Europe’s best surf beaches.

Gwithian Lookout is made for lazy days and long summer evenings enjoying the sunsets over the bay and the enchanting lights of St Ives twinkling at night. Gwithian Beach is a very long and exposed sandy beach that joins up with Hayle Towans and Godrevy at low tide, popular with surfers. Further down the coast is the fabulous Carbis Bay where the G7 summit was held in June 2021, featuring a blue flag beach and plenty of fine dining to be had. For keen walkers, you can connect to the nearby South West Coastal path and head up to Portreath or down to Hayle.

Welcome to Gwithian

There’s a lot to love about Gwithian holidays; nestled in St Ives Bay and with staggering views out over Godrevy Lighthouse, Gwithian beach remains a popular vacation destination thanks to golden sand, clear water and wild dunes that shelter the beach from the elements.

We absolutely loved our week at the Lookout. And never has a place been so accurately named. Could not stop looking at the view all day every day! In all weathers it is stunning. Quiet location, comfy beds and everything you could need is provided. Oh and M&S food supermarket 10 minutes away!

We spent a wonderful week at Gwithian Lookout. The weather was a mix of hot sun and cloudier days but warm throughout. We relaxed, read, bbq'd and enjoyed the accommodation inside and out. The large patio doors slide back to bring the outdoors in. The property has a direct and unobscured view of Gwithian Towans beach and Godrevy Lighthouse. We breakfasted at The Jam Pot cafe which has an extensive menu and is open Wed to Sun 1000 til 1600. It's literally a 5 inute dawdle from Gwithian Lookout. Days out included visits to beautiful gardens, Geevor Mine is well worth exploring. We had a day trip to the Isles of Scilly booked but we were disappointed when our flight was cancelled from Land's End Airport due to low cloud and air traffic control staff sickness. There were no issues with a full and prompt refund though. I guess we'll just have to stay here again and have another go at getting to the Isles of Scilly!

Hi Deborah, thank you for taking the time to leave a review, it sounds like you had a wonderful time, we are so pleased. Sorry to hear your Scilly Isle trip was cancelled but hopefully you are able to stay with us again and have the opportunity to go next time. We look forward to welcoming you back again one day. Best wishes, the Luxury Coastal team.
