Overview

About the property

Chalet in Gwithian, Nr. Hayle, Cornwall, England - 5 Minutes Walk To The Beach. Secluded Location. Sleeps 5/6. Well Behaved Dogs Welcome. No smoking.

Chalet Pool is a traditional beach-side wooden chalet situated in a beautiful location at Gwithian Towans which is part of the West Cornwall Heritage Site. It directly overlooks St Ives Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, Godrevy Lighthouse, the nature reserve and National Trust land, as well as local hills and farmland. It is a place to relax and take in the outstanding views. The beach is less than 5 minutes walk away and is one of the best surf spots and sandy beaches in the UK. The rockpools are there to explore, and the coastal path lets you experience the habitat of the dunes more fully. Plus - the cafes on the towans, the village pub in Gwithian, and the new seafood bar and grill at Godrevy are all within walking distance too. What more could you want for a stay in Cornwall. It is quite simply idyllic.

The property sleeps 5/6 in 3 bedrooms (2 doubles both with views to the Lighthouse, and 1 single), however a forth single bedroom is available on request and at the owners discretion.

It is a very well equipped chalet, tastefully extended and refurbished ready for 2016 to a high standard, whilst maintaining a home from home feel.

It has a fully enclosed private garden, decked patio area, surf board secure storage, hot/cold outside shower, designated parking for 2 cars, free wifi, TV/DVD, wireless speaker system. There is a large kitchen diner with built in oven, hob, large fridge freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. There is a , separate living room also with views to Godrevy Lighthouse where the patio doors can be widely opened for access onto the decking for added alfresco dining. The landscape is truly a partner with Chalet Pool.

No smoking allowed in the chalet, outbuilding or surrounding gardens. Dogs are accepted by prior agreement.

About Louise Farmer

I am a professional living in London with my three sons and two dogs. Holidaying in Gwithian has been in our family for a couple of generations, and Chalet Pool has now become a part of that too.

Louise Farmer purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Louise Farmer chose Camborne, Redruth & Hayle

My family and i have often spoke about having a place of our own in Gwithian. Chalet Pool is now just that. It is a place where I holidayed as a child, explored, and then holidayed with our children, more exploring, who now love to come to the Towans as young adults, to chill, as do I.

It is a place where all who visit say the scenery is breathtaking, with each month taking on a new dimension of rawness, colour and beauty, be it the waves crashing over the lighthouse, the beach contours, or the colours of dawn over the hills and the sunsets out west.

It is a place where memories are made and cherished, and Chalet Pool will be a part of future memories too. It is somewhere different to be a part off, a beautiful place with outstanding views of many landscapes - the sea, Godrevy Lighthouse, St Ives, the horizon, the hills and adjacent farmland. An amazing all round view from the front and back of the property.

It is a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday chores and work. Relax, enjoy, chill, love.

What makes this chalet unique

Chalet Pool is conveniently situated on the Towans, within a couple of minutes walk of the dunes and the beach.

Gwithian Towans is set within a beautiful location of outstanding natural beauty and is part of three miles of sandy beach that stretches from Godrevy to Hayle. It is an ideal place for families as there are many rock pools to explore, and in the summer season the beach is patrolled by life guards. There is a designated surfing area for those with bigger surf boards, and surf competitions are held from time to time in Gwithian. The dunes are great for dog walking, although beach access is restricted for dogs during certain parts of the day in the summer months.

Close by are two lovely cafes (opening times vary during the low season), and a good pub - the Red River Inn.

Notes:
The character of the original wooden chalet dating back to the early 1900s (it is one of the original chalets that was relocated from Godrevy to Gwithian as the National Trust took over the headland at Godrevy in early 20th century) is key to the setting, and this has been maintained in the completion of the recent chalet extension and improvements. All in keeping with local architecture, materials and design. Outside: The private garden is fully enclosed and secure with a decked patio area with garden furniture. There is a shed that provides secure storage for surf boards if required. Cleaning / Towels / Linen: At the end of guest's stay, the chalet must be left in a clean state in which it was found to avoid an additional cleaning fee. Bed linen is included in rates. Towels are not included, but can be hired for a small additional fee. A refundable security/damage/loss deposit is required. Full details in the terms & conditions notified at the time of booking.

Simply the best!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several other properties on Gwithian Towans, and while all share the fabulous location, few others have the all-round excellence and comfort of 'Pool'. Louise's chalet - probably 'cottage' is a fairer description - has state of the art equipment, from the Blaupunkt TV, the AEG cooker, self-heating shower system, hot water and heating that work, Panasonic microwave, right down to the Bosch kettle. The beds are comfortable, the decor's tasteful, and the nick-nacks are fascinating. There are dozens of DVDs and books for a rainy day, and a terrific music system. Nothing has been overlooked in the equipment, from a bottle opener to a sewing kit! Not only that, the view from the back patio is one of the best on the Towans, looking straight across at the ever-fascinating Godrevy lighthouse. Sitting there over dinner with the sun going down, is one of those lasting memories. There's only one tiny drawback, and that's the state of the road once you get round the corner past the Jam Pot cafe. We have an 18-months old CR-V and that only just coped with the roller-coaster ride of the last 100 metres. If your vehicle can cope with that, then you will find your stay at 'Pool' will be simply the best! As you might have guessed by now, highly recommended. Despite the bumpy ride, we will definitely be back - thanks Louise, and congratulations on the way you have decorated and equipped the property!

Brilliant

  • 5 of 5

We can't thank Louise enough for letting us stay in her holiday chalet.

We called her up very last min as we were down Cornwall on holiday already and wanted to stay a few more days. Louise arranged our stay very quickly and smoothly.

The chalet it's self was beautiful. Lovely decor. Clean and tidy. It's was well equipped too.

We loved our stay and have come back refreshed.

I would definitely stay at pool chalet again.

Highly recommended by the Hill family :-)

Fabulous chalet. Superb location.

  • 5 of 5

All in all it was a fantastic experience. Easy to book, responsive and flexible owner and a lovely chalet. We have stayed at a few places at Gwithian Towans and this was our favourite - the location, tranquility and the chalet itself all made for one of our best holidays.
