A surfer’s paradise
Stay on the surf’s edge at Surfside Beach House, from Forever Cornwall.
Whether you’ve only enjoyed fleeting weekends or are a frequent visitor, if you’re at all familiar with Cornwall you’ll be more than aware of the region’s beauty, from the rugged stretches of coastline to its picturesque inland villages and rolling countryside.
“Surfers from all around the world flock to Gwithian to make the most of its fantastic beach break”
We’ve talked about Gwithian many times before – a charming village on Cornwall’s north coast, where miles of glorious golden sand make up the beaches of Godrevy and Gwithian Towans. These unspoilt havens stretch along the easterly side of St Ives Bay and as west-facing beaches, they bask in the summer sun throughout the day. And, for those looking for the perfect surf, while Cornwall abounds with world-famous breaks, Gwithian has to be one of the most popular.
Surfers from all around the world flock to Gwithian to make the most of its fantastic beach break. Others come to enjoy the waters that, thanks to the Gulf Stream and heat retaining properties of St Ives Bay, are comparatively – and surprisingly – warm.
The Forever Cornwall team believes that this unassuming stretch of coastline holds the formula for the perfect retreat, offering a number of beautiful beachside holiday properties. The aptly named Surfside Beach House is one such home. Part of an ever-increasing portfolio of beautiful beach chalets in the area, Surfside sleeps four, having been lovingly restored and providing the right amount of luxury as the perfect home from home. It’s ideal for couples and small families in need of a getaway, and it’s also dog friendly!
As a guest here, the coast path is quite literally on your doorstep, meaning you couldn’t get any closer to the beach if you tried! So if you’d like to give one of the best surfs in Cornwall a try, or make the most of the abundance of other water sports available on the beach, with fantastic accommodation like Surfside available from Forever Cornwall, there’s really no reason not to!
