Gwelmor Beach Chalet

Front room area
1 of 19Front room area
Chalet -
3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
St Ives, Cornwall, England
'Gwelmor' is a beautiful wooden chalet in an inspirational and peaceful location - perched in an idyllic setting on the dunes above the beach at Riviere Towans in St. Ives Bay. Traditional in style, Gwelmor has the character of an old chalet but with modern conveniences. The sand-worn pine floor boards compliment the seaside-style interior and comfortable furnishings, and the charming covered verandah is a perfect place to watch the glorious sunsets over St Ives.

Ideally suited for families of up to six, seeking a relaxing seaside retreat literally moments away from the beach and the water's edge.
Free private car parking 30 metres from chalet.

Gwelmor was exactly what we wanted for our late September break. A lovely homely base for our week in South Cornwall. A feeling of being away from everything and everyone yet close enough to pop out for fish and chips and all the wonderful nearby...More

We were welcomed after a long drive to a bottle of wine, chocolates and a card waiting for us on the table as we walked into the chalet. From the outside the property looked lovely with stunning views of the sea but once we got...More

About the neighborhood
A stunning 3 mile of golden sandy shoreline is a 2 minute walk from Gwelmor. The view is ever changing with the Cornish light.

Hayle offers lots of fantastic spots including Hayle Estuary, Hayle beach and St. Georges Memorial walk. The surrounding area includes a 15 minute drive to St. Ives (or we highly recommend the train there - it's breath taking!).

Other places to visit include: Penzance, Mousehole (St. Michaels Mount), Falmouth, Gwithian (Godrevy Lighthouse) and many more.

Mr B's in Hayle is THE place for ice cream. Philps is the place for a Cornish pasty and Saunders for Fish N' Chips! There's lovely places to eat: Red River Inn, Buck Harry's Cali Style, Antoninis (italian).
Getting around
You can get the train to St. Erth and get a taxi to the chalet if you are with out a car. But we do recommend a car to get around as our chalets are close to the beach and out of the town.

Lidl is 30 minute walk/5 minute drive. There is a small shop a 5 minute walk down the road.

Asda and Marks & Specer is 5 minute drive.
Car advised
How to get there
From westbound A30 take Hayle exit at Loggans Moor roundabout (east end of Hayle Bypass). Go straight on over double mini roundabout (Lidl supermarket on right).

Drive up hill, through village (past ‘Bucket of Blood’ pub on right), around sharp right hand bend, 250m further turn into ‘Riviere Towans Chalets on left.

You can obtain a site map from reception upon arrival.
