About the property

'Beachbreak' is a traditional wooden beach chalet nestling in the sand dunes in the towans at Gwithian Sands. It is in 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 children 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.

The light contemporary interior has an open plan living space with wooden floors and a retro feel. The fully equipped kitchen includes a ceramic cooker, free standing smeg fridge, microwave, toaster and separate freezer. Included are essentials like tea towels, oven gloves, etc as well as a welcome pack. There is a family dining table to enjoy your meals and a highchair can be provided on request.

The lounge has 2 comfortable sofas, a flat screen tv with dvd player and a DAB radio with ipod docking station.

There are 2 bedrooms, one double room and one bunk room (full size beds) with an extra single. All beds have duvets, pillows and freshly laundered mattress and pillow protectors. Let me know if you would like a travel cot.The chalet has electric wall heaters and electricity is supplied via a £1 coin meter.

About Karin Howey

Hello. I feel blessed that I had the opportunity to grow up in Cornwall because my mum had a yearning to head to St Ives to be part of the well established art colony. Our bohemian lifestyle meant we were always moving but we were never far from the coast. Beach chalets were part of our childhood and the nostalgia has never really left me. Beachbreak is my pride and joy and I love adding new touches to welcome guests. I hope you enjoy making your own memories down by the sea ...

A beautiful chalet in a magical location.

  • 5 of 5

We had the perfect family holiday in gwithian. The chalet is simple and tasteful. It has everything we needed for an active but relaxed holiday. The location is ideal, sitting at the edge of huge sand dunes with beautiful walks on your doorstep. We will definitely be back.

Lovely Beachbreak

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at Beachbreak for around 7 years.

Absolutely adore this cosy fabulous Chalet, situated on the sand dunes, with a lovely walk across the dunes to a lovely beach with 3 miles of golden sand.

Chalet is very light airy and clean with nice touches, kitchen is well equipped.

Nice decked area to sit on enjoying the sunshine and a few bbq's.

Plenty of nice places to explore close by, look forwards to our return visit every year.
