Nestled in the hamlet of Gwithian Towns The Beach Hut is the epitome of Cornish living with a south facing decked terrace, garden and your own gate leading to sand, sea and plenty of surf on the huge stretch of Godrevy beach below. This retreat is one of our eco-houses with natural insulation, solar and photo-voltaic, non-toxic paint, reclaimed cornish slate roof, and reclaimed 19th Century flooring and an e-car charger among other features. If you can tear yourself away from the stunning view, this sleek beach house is full of modern touches with an amazing Moroccan limestone bathroom. This is a perfect little getaway for romantic breaks and honeymoons.


An impressive floor to ceiling sliding glass door opens up to the terrace to bring the outside in and for those cosy winter nights snuggle down in the comfy sweatheart sofa set in front of the wood burner. The main living area of this unique luxury retreat is open plan with fabulous sea views and solid reclaimed wood floors and a short flight of stairs lead to an additional cosy snug with a TV, armchair and Fat Boy™ bean bag, the perfect spot for chilling with a glass of fizz after a long day on the beach.


The kitchen area has ultra modern pale blue units, a gas hob and electric oven with a Nespresso machine and a few starter pods and a French press is provided for that early morning fix. The dining table is a bespoke round iron table with camel hide chairs made by an artist who splits her time between Kenya and Italy. To make the most of the views the dining table is sat between the kitchen area and sliding glass door and there is also an outdoor wooden table. For ease a washing machine and drier are housed in the entrance porch so you're not without all your home-from-home comforts.


The bedroom is on the ground floor next to the sitting room with a gorgeous picture window just perfect for checking out the waves in the morning. And if surf's up? Jump out of bed, grab your board and hit the waves.


The exquisite bathroom also resides on the ground floor and has feature lighting and a huge rose shower head set into the ceiling over the bath. When you come out of the surf you can strip out of your wetsuits in the outside shower cubicle cleverly positioned at the front of the retreat so you can make the most of the views.

Outside space

The stunning decked terrace steps down to the lawned garden, both with amazing views facing the dunes, beach and sea. If you're looking for a more chilled break just relax on the deck and top up your tan.


There is parking for two cars outside the property and there is a charging point for electric vehicles.


The Beach Hut has WiFi so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world (or check the surf reports) you can.


This is one of our pet free properties.

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about The Beach Hut:

The property, location and views were superb and even better than described.

Absolutely stunning! Location is perfect and watching the sunset was amazing!

A truly amazing location with sunsets to rival any in the world. The accommodation was perfect for two people looking to escape the rat race. Lilly at Boutique Retreats looked after our booking in a friendly and very professional way. Can’t wait to return. Thank you

Andy & Julia G

Watch the sunset from the comfort of the sofa. Go for a body board in the surf, walk along the longest, sandiest beach in Cornwall. Or cuddle up in front of a real fire to the sound of the waves. Idyllic.

Absolutely stunning cottage with the best view money can buy Have booked it twice and will definitely be booking again
