The chalet itself is small but there was enough space for us to relax comfortably when not sitting outside and all the facilities, kitchen, bathroom etc were excellent. Gwithian beach is beautiful and there is something along the sands for everyone, we particularly enjoyed the food at the Godrevy Beach Cafe. We could've just spent the whole week on the Towans, on the beach, walking the along the coastal paths but it is a good base for exploring the Cornish coast with St.Ives, Lands End and the Eden Project near by.
