Coastal escapes September 2019

Beautiful stays in Gwithian, Truro and St Ives.

FitzRoy, Gwithian 

The epitome of relaxed seaside living, this chic beachside lodge sleeps six across three bedrooms and is perfect for a getaway with family or friends. The social spaces have been beautifully thought out and, with Sandy Acres beach just a stone’s throw away, FitzRoy has the perfect natural playground for all ages, right on its doorstep.

Relax on the deck, soak up the Cornish sun and embrace coastal living at its finest. Why not learn to surf? It’s great fun, even on rainy days!

There’s a cosy wood burner inside, perfect for days when the weather’s inclement, as well as an inviting L-shaped sofa and two sumptuous chairs to sink into. Outside you’ll find a spacious decking area and a barbeque, perfect for al fresco lunches and dinners. But the crowning jewel has to be the hot tub, allowing you to soak away after the sun goes down and indulge in a spot of stargazing.

Perfect for short breaks, with all the mod cons the modern guest has come to expect, FitzRoy is also dog friendly, meaning nobody needs to miss out on making unforgettable holiday memories.

Callestock Vean, Truro 

If you’re dreaming of a tranquil escape amidst rolling green hills and beautiful countryside then Callestock Vean is the perfect retreat for you. This two-bedroom detached property is set in its own grounds with stunning views across open farmland. The house itself has been finished to an extremely high standard, with every room angled towards making the most of the incredible views.

Perranporth is just ten minutes away and has three miles of beautiful beach and clifftop walks. Or, head over to Newquay where you’ll find a wealth of restaurants and shops, as well as some of the best surf beaches in the county.

After a long day exploring all that Cornwall has to offer, kick off your walking boots and head back to the tranquillity of Callestock Vean. Fluffy towels, sumptuous bathrobes and slippers await you, and maybe even a glass of wine on the spacious patio.
