Nestled on the edge of Gwithian’s unique collection of beach houses and holiday chalets, with uninterrupted views of the coast and Godrevy Lighthouse, is Stones Reef. This cosy-yet-spacious dog friendly Gwithian beach house sleeps six across three bedrooms, and benefits from an open plan living area and large grassy garden.
Inside Stones Reef
Stepping into Stones Reef, you will notice the engineered oak flooring and tall vaulted ceilings throughout, complimenting the spacious rooms and filling the chalet with an abundance of natural light. At the end of the entrance and in the heart of the home, the open plan kitchen, living and dining area provides guests with a great space for coming together and socialising. The kitchen has a double oven, gas hob and lots of useful appliances. In the living area sits a tall free-standing log burner, providing the chalet with the perfect contrast of a cosy, homely space in the cooler seasons, and an open, airy area with a full wall of large windows to watch the sea through all weathers.
The property has three bedrooms, two king-sized and one twin room, all with under vaulted ceilings and convenient fitted storage cupboards. The principle bedroom benefits from a newly fitted, airy en-suite with walk-in shower and both the principle and third bedroom have beautiful views over the nature reserve and countryside. The modern family bathroom has both a bath and walk-in shower, and like the rest of the chalet lets in floods of natural light through velux windows.
The location of Stones Reef is where the property really thrives. As well as its fantastic uninterrupted views, Stones Reef benefits from a large (and private!) level grassy garden, which enjoys a spectacular backdrop of Godrevy and the lighthouse. There is also a raised timber deck which can be accessed from the garden, or directly through the glass sliding doors from the living area, which makes it a convenient space for al-fresco dining and watching the sun sink into the horizon at the end of the day. Another one of Stones Reef’s top features has to be the stroll from its private garden gate, straight on to the Towans and miles of stunning beach just 200 metres away. If beach days and water sports are your thing, you will find a convenient outdoor hot and cold shower, perfect for the aprés-surf rinse downs.
Please be advised that there are ongoing building works taking place in some of the neighbouring properties, including the ‘Jam Pot’ and a newbuild.
Things we love
We love all of our Gwithian chalets and beach houses and this one especially for its amazingly private and spacious setting, looking right out to the lighthouse. Indeed ‘The Stones’ is the name of the notorious reef at the western edge of St Ives Bay and which is marked by the Godrevy Lighthouse (hence the name). Being able to amble out of your own garden gate for some blue therapy with a surf or open water swim, or a stroll whether up along the coastal path, or down along the strand line… It makes you feel as if Gwithian Towans was made just for you. As the day ends, we love seeing and hearing the Canada geese flying in formation as they take off from the nature reserve ad fly low over the garden… then perhaps wandering through the dunes to the village and a meal at the pub… home again with flickering torches in hand, to the cosy wood burner at Stones Reef.
