Three traditional 1960’s wooden chalets nestling in the Gwithian dunes, owned by three individual families who grouped together to form “Three Shades of Blue”. Little Blue House, Blue Boy and Surfside each have two bedrooms, a bathroom/WC and open-plan kitchen and living area. Each has its own unique style and they sleep six comfortably and are 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.

Each chalet has two bedrooms, one double and one with a small double and two bunks. The kitchen has a cooker, microwave and fridge and enough utensils to see you through your holiday. The chalets are heated and insulated and have a TV and DVD player for the odd rainy day.
Little Blue House
This chalet has books at its heart. Get away from the bustle of the city and browse through the collections of short stories and novels on the bookshelves. There’s no WiFi here (but if you’re desperate you can access the Camping Club WiFi for a small fee).
This chalet offers a feast of curiosities. Shelves of obscure collected items and renovated with recycled materials it’s an amazing experience. A unique style which is full of warmth and humour. This chalet uses an electricty key which can be “charged up” in the local co-op in Hayle.
This chalet is a minimalist retreat. Its uncluttered style offers space to breathe.
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 from The Little Blue House 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.
Situated just over a mile from the small town of Hayle, the location is ideal for a family holiday. The chalet site is secluded with open grassy areas for children to play safely within the site. Up on the dunes overlooking the chalets, children (and occasionally adults) can be found digging holes or sliding down on tea trays and sledges. Its relaxed communal feel is a welcome alternative to some of the more crowded caravan parks elsewhere in Cornwall. There is a small friendly bar on the site which opens most evenings.
Within easy striking distance of St Ives and the countless other opportunities that Cornwall offers, Three Shades of Blue Chalets provide comfortable and attractive accommodation from which to explore the surroundings. Whether it’s kite surfing, long walks along the coastal paths or visiting St Michael’s Mount, West Cornwall offers a remarkable variety of activities and attractions.
