The sleeping accommodation here has been designed to be flexible and can be adapted to your needs. Your principal bedroom has a show-stopping superking-sized bed and ensuite wet-room with a luxury jumbo waterfall shower. The second bedroom has a zip-and-link super-king bed that can be separated into two singles is you prefer. Then there are two further twin bedrooms with can be zip-and-linked to make super-kings — these rooms also feature cool mezzanines with futons for chilling out or even extra sleeping space for an additional child or small adult on each, making an additional sleeping capacity of two (one in each room). All main beds have the same luxury deep-sprung mattresses — so have them made up your way – just let us know what you’d like, when you book. Note the futons are accessed via ladders, which can be blocked-off to make the mezzanines out of bounds if you have little ones.

Completing the accommodation is a luxury family bathroom with a stylish nickel plated slipper bath, huge walk-in wet-room shower, basin and WC. You also have an extra WC in the entrance lobby.

In the open air

Careless whisper is part of the Three Mile Beach experience at Gwithian Towans. Each of these beach houses has been uniquely styled with the same standard of luxury accommodation, and that includes outside. Your outdoor space has been brilliantly landscaped to reflect the local environment, and designed to make indoors feel like outdoors, and outdoors feel like indoors. You have 600 square feet of stylish decking, complete with everything you need for a surf lifestyle. Please note, dogs will need to be kept on leads when outdoors, as the garden space is not fenced. The centrepiece is your sunken cedar hot tub, which will be filled, hot and inviting, when you arrive. Not to mention the barrel sauna, large gas-fired barbeque grill, outdoor dining table and huge adjustable sun-sail to shelter you when you need it.

Also available is an on-site office to make sure everything goes like a dream during your stay. Here the friendly hospitality team can help with everything from booking you a table at a restaurant to supplying you with more firewood and toilet paper (free of course). You can also hire any of the following to make your stay unforgettable: wetsuits, surfboards, bodyboards, SUPs, beach games and gear, pizza ovens and smokers (subject to availability).

Also be sure to check out the Three Mile Beach street food on site, selling a range of food and drink from cool food trucks. This can be ordered and delivered straight to your door. Please note, the restaurant is open year round but only offers delivery in the winter. The outdoor seating area and bar is also only open from Easter until the end of October.

Really high quality
Really well equipped house, good use of space and furnishings. Whenever we needed something it was fabulous to have the office nearby. Great maintenance of the hot tub. Everything was spotless - like a show home when we arrived. The interior decor, fixtures and fittings were really high quality and added to the stay. Thank you, it's been fab.
