The Retreat

Created for easy going surf-style holidays, Surf Six is an epic beach chalet with gorgeous sea views that can sleep eight to ten. The fabulous beaches of Gwithian and Godrevy are right on the doorstep, with enticing surf, beguiling rockpools and miles of sand. And with coastal walks and cool cafés to hand as well, Surf Six makes the perfect show-stopping retreat.

Surf Six provides a unique experience for this area and you will be blown away by the chalet’s coastal chic. The indoor and outdoor features are geared to ensure you take advantage of its amazing location, a place of sunsets, surf and sea. The range of bedrooms, bathrooms and living spaces also means the home offers very flexible accommodation for your family or group.

Inside Surf Six

Approaching via a road through the san dunes you arrive at Surf Six, located near the legendary Sunset Surf Café. It’s one of a cluster of privately owned and unique beach houses in this location, ranging from traditional ‘chalets’ to stylish beach-side residences. You have wide double gates and a large parking area behind the property. You’ll enter Surf Six into a nice spacious hallway with storage space for all your hats, coats and boots plus seating. Beyond this is the open plan living/kitchen/dining area, decorated with cool coastal art and hanging industrial lighting. This is the sociable hub for your group to spend time together. There are sea glimpses through two pairs of French doors, which also bathes the room in light at all times of the year. You’ll find a large L-shaped sofa, plus a 40” TV and a Sonos system for your favourite sounds. The kitchen has handmade units and the dining area is generously spacious for shared meals together. Upstairs is an additional living with 180° views of the sea (and Godrevy Lighthouse), a toasty wood burner and lots of seating; two sofas plus large floor cushions and a large revolving armchair. Here there is also a vintage games console with scores of retro delights for you to enjoy including Pac-Man, Space Invaders and many more.

The sleeping accommodation and bathrooms are clustered at each end of the property, separated by the living area. This arrangement may be particularly suitable for two families sharing. At one end you have the stunning principal bedroom with a double bed, luxurious open en-suite wet-room with a decadent in-room bath, spacious walk-in shower , and a connecting WC. At this end of the property is also the second double room, plus a bathroom with shower and toilet. Next to the principal bedroom is the après surf room for rinsing off after time in the sea, with a monsoon shower, another freestanding bath and outdoor access through French doors.

At the other end of the property, beyond the living area, you’ll find further bedrooms for up to six more guests, with a double bedroom and two single rooms each with a trundle bed so that these rooms can be made to sleep two. There is also a lovely fully tiled family bathroom, with a bath and shower.

The garden and surrounding areas

Surf Six is fully detached and stands in its own private garden, which is large and surrounds the beach house on all sides. To the front you have a lawn, and spacious decking area with festival lighting and a dining table for all to enjoy tasty al fresco evenings. For a relaxed surfer vibe, you also have a barbecue and laid-back seating area for nine people. To the back of the home you have a table tennis table for the competitive people in your group, and two après-surf showers. There is also ample parking for three or more cars.

The beach is around 100m from your gate. On the way you’ll pass Sunset Surf, a great place for a coffee, a snack or a complete meal — as well as doubling up as a well-stocked surf shop. If you wanted to try your hands and feet at surfing, the experts at Global Boarders will show you the way of the waves. Gwithian beach is stunning, and it forms one end of three miles of clean tide-washed sand stretching all the way to the Hayle Estuary. Across the bay the sun will set over the twinkling lights of St Ives and Carbis Bay. Gwithian beach is lifeguarded in summer and offers everything beach lovers could wish for, from pumping surf to baby-friendly rockpools. The miles of marram-covered sand dunes (the “Towans”) are dog friendly at all times and the South West Coast Path runs for as far as your legs will carry you in either direction.

Things we love

Surf Six is a well-loved family home that has been styled and appointed for an epic beach holiday, so there’s plenty to love about it. Gwithian is a place you will instantly fall for, a beautifully rural location that’s well connected to stunning places like St Ives, Mount’s Bay and even the wilds of west Cornwall. If you don’t feel like traveling far, you have plenty to do on your doorstep whatever the weather; including relaxing on three miles of sandy beach, playing in the epic surf, wandering the endless dune-scape or rambling the nearby rugged coastline. We also know that big groups like to do different things, so you will find Gwithian has everything suit all moods and ages.

And not forgetting the stellar Surf Six itself. After busy days out, you will find the beach chalet a welcoming space to wind down in. The range of inside and outdoor spaces allows your group to spend time together, whilst providing lots of quiet corners for some guests to get some well-deserved “me time”. The retreat has also been geared to those searching for salt and sand, so you will get full use of the two outdoor surf showers and the huge pre/post surf room. With coastal and surf vibes aplenty, Surf Six was made for full-tilt relaxation where the worries of the world will wash away with the tide.

It's been so lovely to wake up to the sound of the sea each morning, and even to take a dip on New Year's Day! It's such a lovely house and so convenient for beach walks, sea swims and general holiday fun. We loved enjoying our evenings up in the games room upstairs - it's so cosy and the view is just spectacular. I'm sure we'll be back at some point!

The beaches of Godrevy and Gwithian Towans are tucked away treasures on the North coast of Cornwall, backed by picturesque sand dunes that run alongside them. 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
  • Wonderful

    We have had a wonderful time! Loved the beach house. Thank you.

    The Clark Family — March 2022
  • Stunning new extension

    Thank you so much for a fourth visit to your wonderful house, this time with its stunning new extension. It's a new experience for us to be here in Autumn, but we just love it and are so happy to be back. We have been incredibly lucky with the weather to explore our old haunts. Coming here has taught us to live again after the pandemic; we had forgotten just how good it is to get out and about.

    Shelia & Gordon – November 2021
  • So well equipped

    Another amazing stay at Gwithian! Such a lovely retreat - so well equipped and in the perfect spot. Thank you - we've had a great week.

    The David & Stewart Families — October 2021
  • Gorgeous place

    Thank you for providing us with such a gorgeous place to decompress. We thoroughly enjoyed our walks, runs and swims along this beautiful coast and savoured every moment just sitting in your pretty garden listening to the waves. The whole community here at Gwithian is lovely and the food and service at Sunset Surf is fab!

    Tony & Family — September 2021
  • Wow!

    The house - wow! Tastefully decorated with a range of quirky pieces of art. The space was incredible, and there was always some little nook to retreat to if we wanted some 'alone' time. Our tenth visit to Gwithian but by far the best accommodation we have stayed in. The weather was amazing and we didn't feel the need to go anywhere but the beach. After a terrible year of isolation, loneliness and grief, we can't tell you how magical our visit was.

    The Butterworth Family — July 2021
  • Love the place

    Still love the place and the new extension is a great addition. Hopefully back again next year.

    The Harker Family — July 2021
  • Gorgeous home

    Thank you for a lovely stay at your gorgeous home. We've had a wonderful holiday with lots of happy memories. Our two dogs had the most fantastic time of their lives down on the beach making lots of friends. Our three teenage boys have said it's been the best holiday ever, and we've done a lot of travelling! So just a massive thank you for an amazing two sunny weeks in Gwithian.

    The Briggs Family – June 2021
  • Beautiful Home

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. Felt relaxed from the minute we opened the front door. Love your new extension and the views from upstairs are stunning. Fabulous meal at 'The Pig' hotel near Padstow and the most beautiful beach at Harlyn Bay, excellent for young children. People are very welcoming and friendly. Don't want to go home - would stay forever.

    Steve & Family — June 2021
  • Fabulous

    Thank you for a fabulous stay in this lovely home! The family, friends and Sunny the dog all had a wonderful time. We were really lucky with the surf and weather and loved being so close to the beach. We love your eclectic mix of artwork.

    The Simpson & Weston Family — September 2020
  • Lovely stay

    What a lovely stay! We absolutely love your home. It is so nice to have a secure garden for the children to run around and the open plan living space is perfect for family. We have made some wonderful memories, Thank you!

    The Pick Family — October 2019
  • We had a great week!

    Had a great week here. Being so close to the sea has made it especially great. Walking our dog every morning along the beach or on top of the dunes has been magical. We have had some great sunsets; deep red or brilliant white light through the clouds. Enjoyed Sunset Surf next door for cream teas, coffees and beers. Many thanks.

    The Reissing Family, Cheshire — June 2019
  • Utterly amazing!

    There are not enough words to describe how utterly amazing this place is! A true gem in a stunning location, what more could you want? We had the best weather ever and surfed most of the week! Thank you!

    The Davey Family, Surrey — April 2019
  • A week in heaven!

    Totally blown away by the beauty of the landscape and big open skies. The house is fabulous, perfect for our large family and couldn't be better located. We will definitely be back!

    Scott & family - August 2018
  • Another good week in Gwithian.

    Another good week in Gwithian, difficult to beat this beach for surfing and space. Mixed weather, but our group of 6 teenage boys and one girl aged 20 were almost oblivious...thank you for the flowers, biscuits, milk etc....a lovely welcome. Would recommend the Salt Bar in Hay;e for great after-sruf food, and Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens for its lovely garden, nursery, cafe and gallery (also the riding stables of the same name).

    The Keohanes, Hampshire — August 2017
  • Fantastic house.

    Lovely week — great location, great beach! And lovely weather. We will be back next year — booked already! Thank you for nice little touches, fantastic house!

  • An amazing house!

    End of a fantastic two-week stay. Surf six is an amazing house. Love the open, airy living space. Even when someone is cooking you still feel part of everything.

    Kathy and Ant — May 2017
  • So bright, light and cheerful.

    A wonderful house, with a very spacious living area, so bright, light and cheerful, but with a smaller room to go to for games and a second TV. The location is perfect for communing with nature on the sand dunes, the coastal path and on the beautiful sandy beach with its many rocks and caves, as well as the seals at Godrevy. What more could you ask for? It's so refreshing and restorative to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and just relax here.

    Shelia and Gordon — March 2017
  • It's a little piece of paradise!

    This is my first time in Cornwall and I'm just blown away by this amazing place. Today is the day we leave and I really don't want to go home! It's a little piece of paradise. We have felt close to nature, the changing weather has provided a stunning back drop every day. I will miss the sound of the crashing waves and long walks along the beach. My favourite moment each day has been watching the sunset from the cliffs before returning to this beautiful house for dinner!

    Julia — March 2017
  • Everything so clean and tidy.

    Great welcome at a lovely house. Everything so clean and tidy.

  • This house is amazing!

    I have spent many holidays in Cornwall - but nowhere like this! Where do I begin - there is bags of everything - sun, sea, surf, the towans and the cliff walks, all are amazing. This house is amazing too! Great situation, decor, comfortable and relaxing!

  • Perfect holiday home.

    We have had an amazing time at Surf Six! Thank you so much for having us! The area is stunning and we loved how close the beach was! The sunsets were amazing. We had lots of long dog walks and we very much enjoyed surfing. We were in the sea almost everyday. Thank you for making this the perfect holiday home for us to stay in - we had a great week!

  • Most relaxing, wonderful and refreshing stay.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for the most relaxing, wonderful and refreshing stay in your beautiful house!! We have absolutly loved exploring the beautiful, wild coastal countryside around Gwithian, so much so that we barely felt the need to go further afield. From body boarding and searching for sheels and pebbles on the beach, to playing ball in the dunes and searching for dinosaurs in the caves, there's been plenty to keep our little boys happy even in stormy weather.
    Coming back to the warmth of your bright home for games and chill out is perfect. Would recommend the Sunset Surf Cafe for hot chocolates and beers and wet suits and friendly advice. Trevaskis Farm Shop in Connor Downs for great local food and luxury organic goods. St Ives for fish and chips at the harbour and beautiful sculpture gardens at the Barbara Hepworth house.

    Helen, Thomas, Markus and Edward — March 2016
  • Such a stunning spot.

    What an amazing break! Thank you so much for having us in your gorgeous house. Such a stunning spot- kids loved haring up and down the beach then coming home to hare around the house!

    Selena, Justin and Leo — March 2016
  • Amazing Week!

    Amazing week, fabulous house, great location, everything was just perfect. Thank you, we will be back!

    The Frasers, Weybridge — June 2017
  • It has the 'wow factor!'

    We had a wonderful stay at 'Surf Six' — it has a 'wow factor' about it, as does the beach. Despite, on one outing, the horizontal, driving rain, we surfed every day!
    We had the most marvellous walk back along the beach, following a delicious meal at the Rock Pool Cafe and spotted two seals — magical!
    Thank you for a great holiday in such an idyllic location. Hope to return soon.
