With a wood burner, skylight, and lots of windows flooding in natural light into the living area, The Big Blue is an appealing holiday home for all seasons, and displays sea and lighthouse views for guests to enjoy. The well-equipped modern kitchen is a great space for keen cooks and those who enjoy to host, there’s a breakfast bar seating three, and a dining table which seats full occupancy.

The property has four spacious bedrooms: one king with en-suite, one king with basin, a twin room (which can be made into king upon request) and a bunk bed room (being a double bed with a single overhead) which are great for younger members of the family. The family bathroom has been recently refurbished and has a walk in shower and an egg-shaped freestanding bath.

There’s a handy utility/boot room which has a washing machine, tumble drier and has enough space to store all your surfboards, wetsuits and beach gear. You will find another outside bathroom to ensure no sandy footprints make their way inside the house.


The Big Blue has a large back garden which is dog secure, and also has an outdoor shower for rinsing off after a day on the beach. Whether you decide to light up the barbecue and dine alfresco from your garden, or you want to enjoy dinner from the beach with a sunset, you have dune access right from your gate, making the South West Coast Path and Gwithian beach accessible within seconds. There’s also private parking for two cars.

Things we love

The beaches of Godrevy and Gwithian Towans are treasures on the North coast of Cornwall, backed by picturesque sand dunes that run alongside them. These unspoilt, golden beaches stretch three miles 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 surfers’ heaven and is an area perfect for those wanting to try surfing for the first time or polish up their skills!
