Our cosy house is situated in the peaceful village of Gwinear, on top of a hill surrounded by farmland, with a picturesque church at one end and a friendly pub at the other. There are distant views of St Ives and the bay from the garden and first floor of the house. The nearest beaches are a 7 minute drive away. At one end of St Ives Bay there are vast sandy beaches with sand dunes and at the other there are the National Trust beaches of Godrevy and Gwithian with sand, rocks, lighthouse and seals. There is excellent surfing with boards and wet suits for hire. The village store/newsagents and a pitch and putt course with cafe are one mile away. There are plenty of places to visit nearby. St Ives is 5 miles (a nice little coastal train can take you there). The Eden Project is about 40 minutes drive. Penzance is 8 miles, Mousehole 10 miles, St Michael’s Mount 5 miles, and Lands End 16 miles away. There are three golf courses within a 30 minutes drive.

About Christine Yeates
This is a much loved holiday home that has been in the family for fifteen years and is used by us regularly through the year. The parents, the kids, and the grannies all love it.
Christine Yeates purchased this Cottage in 1996
Why Christine Yeates chose Gwinear-Gwithian
Our cottage is cosy and peaceful no matter what time of year. We love curling up in front of the fire after bracing clifftop walks in winter and enjoying a BBQ with views across the fields to the sea after a long days on the beach in summer. The sunsets are breathtaking.
What makes this Cottage unique
We love the beaches, trips to St Ives, and walks on the beautiful West Cornwall cliffs. Such a lovely place to be in all seasons.

Possibly slightly spoilt because of the rather stunning weather we had, but the cottage is a wonderful little tardis, and a great base for the area. Sunsets to die for in the wonderful garden, and a really well equipped house just made for a tremendous week. Thank you.
I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We love our cottage and Cornwall whatever the weather but I can’t help hoping this beautiful weather holds until we get there in August! Thank you for choosing us.
A second visit, number 3 tba.
My second visit, this time with different people. The house is just what I look for. Comfortable and relaxed but with everything I need close to hand and it served us well. Beaches for walks, a good choice of shops and the train to St Ives on the doorstep. A lovely village with walks, a very friendly pub and a house that I can read or paint in and all that was needed to cook well.
Thank you again
I am so glad you had another cosy and relaxing time. Our cottage is our much-loved home from home and always hope our guests enjoy it as much as we do.
I hope we can welcome you again.
Fantastic, warm and cosy
Cannot recommend this place enough. Lovely seaside theme with artwork through the the cottage. Views of the sea and much bigger than we expected from the pictures. Local pub over the road is handy for a drink or even a bit if takeaway.
We loved having you to stay. I hope we can welcome your family and friends in the future.

Lovely comfortable peaceful cottage
We had a wonderful stay in this lovely cottage. It is a very peaceful location in a village which is surrounded by farmland. It is within easy reach of the local beaches in Gwithian & Godrevy. And St Ives too. We were lucky enough to spot some dolphins & seals while we were here which was amazing!
The cottage itself is perfectly clean and includes everything you need. The beds were very comfortable and the downstairs space had a very cosy feel. The garden is perfect for BBQ's with lovely views over the farmland towards the sea.
There is a pub literally across the road which serves excellent food and also offer a take away service. We also found The Italian Kitchen in Hayle to be a good choice. Overall we were very happy staying here and wouldn't hesitate recommending for the perfect holiday getaway in Cornwall.
