For those of us lucky enough to have stumbled across Gwithian during our Cornish travels, we know that it’s a very special place indeed...and for those yet to discover its beauty; a truly magical experience awaits! Wild and unspoilt, Gwithian’s soft sandy stretch and wave-lined blue waters invite visitors to soak up a truly breath-taking beach holiday atmosphere while the nearby village with its charming atmosphere and countryside setting, is just the place to escape life’s busy agendas.

The main cottage is set over two floors and includes a spacious family bathroom along with four upstairs bedrooms, while downstairs there’s a light-filled and stylish living room with French doors leading out to the garden and a log burner to keep the room cosy during cooler weather.

The home’s farmhouse-style kitchen features a cast iron cooking stove as well as a large dining table with views out to the garden so for family meals or spending time together, this room creates a wonderfully convivial heart of the home. Guests who need to stay in touch with their businesses while on holiday will find that the purpose-built ground floor office space offers a quiet place to work from, while outside, a fantastic garden with lawn, paved terrace, furniture and BBQ invites fresh air dining and relaxation in the sun.
The garden is also home to the delightful ‘Crab Shack’ which has its own entrance, bedroom (with wood-burner), kitchenette and en-suite shower room, and is the perfect solution for multigenerational family groups or for guests who would like additional privacy during their stay.

Home to two surf schools that offer lessons and equipment hire, Gwithian is ideal for those wanting to either try out the sport or hone their skills. Low tide exposes an array of rock and sand pools which are perfect for little ones to explore, and miles of golden sand means grown-ups and children can run free or paddle in the shallows. Off the sand and up on the Towans, visitors can picnic or barbecue to their hearts’ content while taking in the superb views across Godrevy headland and lighthouse.

Pump Cottage and Annexe operates on Saturday and Sunday changeovers, if any other arrival days or durations are required, you are welcome to enquire, and the booking enquiry will be accepted at the owner’s discretion.

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.

Excellent accommodation in amazing situation

We visited in Feb, and therefore did not benefit from great weather which you would want given how close this is to the beach, however the accommodation was excellent for this - ample room for wet weather, with a good number of well proportioned bedrooms so the house didn't feel overly full. Well stocked kitchen, great size dining room, really nice living room with a working stove. The main bathroom is rather tatty now - still clean and fully functional, but with all woodwork having seen better days... it could probably do with a refit, but then again given the amount of sand and seawater that will come in over summer holidays I think this is to be expected. The location of the property is excellent - a very short walk to amazing beaches, and an even shorter to the outstanding local pub. We are keen to revisit in summertime to take advantage of everything this amazing location and house provide.

Hi Kiy, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, so glad to hear you enjoyed the accommodation and found the kitchen well stocked as well as it being spacious enough to not feel overly full. Thank you for your comments and I have passed this over to the owner and property manager. It would be good to welcome you back in the future when the weather is better and you are able to take advantage of the property being so close to the beach. Best wishes, The Luxury Coastal Team

Pump Cottage

Pump cottage is in an excellent location by the beautiful dunes, church, beach and a pub. We had a wonderful time. We arrived after a long journey and the heating was not left on for us. The cottage and annexe were cold and both smelt of damp which was not very welcoming. There was no firewood left so we had to go out and buy some. We called the rental company to get the heating working, which they did quickly and kindly. They also bled the radiators. The property was cleanish but it was in need of a deep clean to get rid of cobwebs and mould on the windows. There was a lovely welcome pack to greet us.

Hi Sian, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are so pleased to hear you had a wonderful stay. All your comments have been passed onto the owner and housekeeping team and we are so sorry the wood was not put out for your arrival. The cleanliness of the property has now been mentioned to the housekeeping team and this will be rectified for future guests. We do hope to welcome you to stay with Luxury Coastal again in the future. Best Wishes, The Luxury Coastal Team
