The Retreat

Tucked away in the heart of Gwithian Towans, An Mordros has all you need and more for a peaceful getaway.  With it’s open plan, spacious living spaces, generous garden and only moments from Gwithian’s breathtaking beach, wild dunes and rugged coastline, it makes for the perfect retreat for your Cornish holiday.

An Mordros, meaning ‘sound of the surf’ has been designed for a laid back, beachy lifestyle. Throughout the chalet you will find high ceilings, stylish décor and underfloor heating for those chillier months. This holiday home comes with an abundance of space both indoors and out.  Sleeping six across three bedrooms and even welcoming your four-legged friend, this thought-out beach house is perfect for those seeking sunsets, surf and that unbeatable coastal fresh air. Step outside the front door to find yourself in the heart of the distinctive Gwithian Towans. Whether you’re chasing water sports, wildlife or long coastal walks, you couldn’t have come to a better place!


Outside An Mordros
Although located in the centre of Gwithian Towans, An Mordros is beautifully private thanks to the surrounding fence and gorgeous flora that clings to the parameters.
With wrap-around decking with south facing alfresco dining space, the sun trap garden is the perfect place to host those summer barbecues  and sundowner drinks. There’s a warm outdoor shower and a shed to store surfboards, bodyboards and wetsuits.
With three miles of golden sand on your doorstep there is no shortage of places to explore and waves to surf. The beach here is lifeguarded in season and the myriad of sand-pools and rock-pools are revealed as the tide recedes, making it a perfect playground for children and nature lovers of all ages.

Things we love
It’s hard to pin point just a couple of things that we love the most about this property – the high ceilings, the gorgeous garden, the Spanish feeling décor, the fact you can open up the doors and windows and feel that you’re outside even from the inside, the location… the list really is endless.
From the moment you walk in to An Mordros you can tell that it has been put together as a home from home and idyllic base for creating wonderful holiday memories.
For those beach lovers it’s perfect – just a moments stroll from the famous beach and rolling dunes of Gwithian, whilst a warm outdoor shower awaits to wash off sandy wetsuits and toes. There’s not much of the beach-lifestyle that hasn’t been thought of!

Love the privacy
A wonderful introduction to the stunning Gwithian Towans - such a special place. We loved the house - the perfect place for some much needed 'r&r'. It really is a retreat by the sea - love the privacy it offers. Thanks for a lovely stay - we'll be back!

These unspoilt, golden beaches stretch along the easterly side of St Ives Bay, and as west facing beaches they bask in the summer sun all day long. With several surf schools lining the beach, Gwithian is a surfing mecca and is an area perfect for those wanting to try surfing for the first time or polish up their skill!

Guests Say
  • Accommodation is fabulous, so well equipped

    A fantastic and memorable stay here. We've stayed on the Gwithian Towans many times but this was our first stay at An Mordros. The accommodation is fabulous, so well equipped, comfortable and our doggie loved it too. Such a special place. Gwithian is extraordinarily treasured to us and it was marvellous to be back again. The walks, the beach, the sunset, the dunes and the 'home from home' is 'chicken soup for the soul'! We will leave with fantastic new memories made and we hope that everyone else who stays here has as equally a wonderful time as we have. We'll be back! All the best and thank you.

  • Lovely beach house

    Thank you for sharing your lovely beach house. We've had an amazing time. Gwithian Academy of Surfing is a must while staying. We came to relax and unwind and we certainly have. Can't wait to be back!

  • So very homely

    Beautiful house, so very homely. We've spent most of our time at the beach. Walked along the coast to Hell's Mouth, visited Newlyn and went for a very early swim at The Jubilee Pool, Penzance. Gwithian beautiful as always.

  • We will be back!

    Thank you - what a lovely house! We have had such a lovely week here in Gwithian, third visit. Surf school at Sunset Cafe was great and cafe staff so friendly. We love the Jam Pot for breakfast or a cream tea. We will be back!

  • A fab week

    We've had a fab week here at An Mordros. The walk along the cliffs past the Godrevy lighthouse is nice - remember to take some binoculars to see the seals! The walk along the beach in the opposite direction towards Carbis Bay is also lovely. Don't forget to try the ultimate hot chocolate from the Hungry Horsebox on Godrevy beach!
