Surfside Chalet
Welcome to Surfside Chalet

A traditional 1960’s wooden chalet nestling in the Gwithian dunes, Surfside has two bedrooms, a bathroom/WC and open-plan kitchen and living area. Surfside has its own unique style and it sleeps six comfortably (small double and bunks in second bedroom) and is equipped with most modern conveniences.

The chalet site is sheltered from much of the wind by dunes which overlook three miles of sandy beach forming part of St Ives Bay. The beach runs from Godrevy Lighthouse in the East (made famous by Virginia Woolfe’s novel “To the Lighthouse”) all the way to the wild bird haven of the Hayle estuary in the West.

Additional Information

There’s no WiFi in the chalets though some may see this as a blessing. If you or the kids get desperate, you can access the Caravan Club wifi and there is a connection to be found in the caravan park next door.

The site is very family friendly and has only thirty chalets. The nearest town, Hayle offers a variety of restaurants and a number of supermarkets for food shopping. The picturesque resort of St Ives is a short drive or train ride away.


A fifteen minute walk through the dunes brings you to Gwithian beach, one of West Cornwall’s best surfing beaches. With lifeguards and surf school it’s a great place to brave the sea for accomplished surfers and beginners alike. The large wide beaches and rock pools make it a safe place for children and the more adventurous might like to jump in the “sheep dip”, a naturally occurring deep rock pool. The dunes offer hundreds of secluded pockets of sheltered sand where you can while away the hours without ever seeing another soul.
