Located on the edge of Hayle’s ‘Towans’, a three-mile stretch of coastal paradise from Hayle to Gwithian, sits Owl’s Nest, a newly built, modern holiday home that has been completed to exceptional standards and is just moments from one of Cornwall’s epic surfing beaches.
Look a little further south from our Gwithian chalets in a quieter spot and you’ll be presented with Owl’s Nest, a purpose built holiday home which boasts a spacious scandi-style base for a Cornish escape on the coast.
You enter Owl’s Nest on the ground floor into the Douglas Fir floor-to-ceiling cladded hallway, you will notice the designers have utilised natural materials, natural coastal light and hand curated details to create a calming and inviting space for a Cornish escape. Walking round the hallway, you’re presented with a sociable open plan living, kitchen and dining area, two bedrooms, a downstairs bathroom and utility room.
The open-plan living, kitchen and dining room is a fantastic space for families to cook meals and relax throughout the day. There is a large L-shaped sofa in the living area for seating for six, with a smart TV. The kitchen features a double oven and induction hob on the breakfast island, an American Style fridge-freezer, stone effect porcelain splash backs, quartz worktops and top-spec appliances. The dining area basks in Cornish light, with large sliding patio doors to the garden and Velux windows above.
The downstairs bedrooms contain twin beds (which can be made into a super king) and a king sized bed (which can be made into twin beds). Both feature plenty of hanging space for clothes and belongings, as well as blackout and venetian blinds for the privacy of a well-earned sleep after a long day on the beach. The super-king room overlooks the garden to the rear of the property, which often displays the final rays of a beautiful north coast sunset.
The utility room is accessible from both inside the house, and from the back garden. It has washing appliances, a welly-rack and drying rack to ensure no sandy feet and wet clothes make it through the house.
Ascending the oak stairs next to the front door, the first room you approach is the ‘games room’, a fantastic addition to the house for children and the ‘big kids’ of the family. It includes a sofa, tv and games console as well as a window overlooking the living area (which is a great way to request drinks and snacks!). There’s also a dedicated study/work pod next door for anyone needing a bit of peace and quiet.
The principal bedroom with en suite is the final room completing upstairs, and has a sumptuous super king bed with natural light flooding filling the room. A beautiful freestanding bath takes centre stage opposite the bed – a perfect way to spend an evening. In the en suite there’s a large rainfall shower with seating and has been finished in beautiful neutral and green tones.
Owl’s Nest is at the end of a quiet shared road, and the extensive outside space here really completes this beautiful property. Accessible round the side of the property and through the sliding doors of the open-plan living space is a patio with al-fresco dining area, as well as a spacious garden for children and dogs to run around. There’s parking for two to three cars on the private driveway.
Owl’s Nest is just seconds from Hayle’s sandy dunes, a fantastic place to explore, go for dog walks and catch some of Cornwall’s best sunsets.
Things we love
Although located a quiet area in Hayle, Owl’s Nest is not far from a bustling Cornish atmosphere. The property is walking distance to beaches, eateries and is an easy drive to some of Cornwall’s top destinations such as St Ives and Marazion, which are less than twenty minutes away. Better yet, you’re in a fantastic position to enjoy spontaneous ramblings across the dunes, which sit right behind the purpose built holiday home. Your perfect Cornish escape at Owl’s Nest is waiting…
