About Tyson Greenaway

Gwithian Holidays is a family run business that was started by Trevor and Elizabeth Greenaway. I'm their son Tyson and have been helping them along with my wife Ruth.

Hopefully in the next decade our son Finn will start to lend us a hand.

Why Tyson Greenaway chose Camborne, Redruth & Hayle

Rated 3 Stars in late 2014 by Quality in Tourism, Visit Cornwall and Enjoy England Tourist boards.

What makes this house unique

Just a short walk from the sand dunes that lead to Gwithian beach and St Ives Bay, Godrevy House is the ideal spot to spend your holiday.

St Ives bay is renowned for its surfing and windsurfing and is well patrolled by lifeguards during the summer season. The beach is ideal for playing in the waves, large enough to find solitude and perfect for barbeques as the sun goes down. John Miller painted most of his famous paintings of the view from his home on the Hayle river along the beach towards Godrevy and when you stand on the beach you can understand why. Virginia Woolf was equally inspired, writing To The Lighthouse after a visit to Godrevy Island.

For those keen to explore the many clifftop paths and secluded coves then this area has much to offer. Gwithian truly is a place where you can get away from it all.

Godrevy House is situated in the centre of Gwithian village surrounded by a gorgeous old church, a restored Methodist chapel, picturesque cottages and plenty of fields.

Within easy walking distance is a popular pub, the Red River Inn and three beach cafes all selling reasonably priced meals. The beach is just a few minutes walk away and seems to be where most of our guests spend a lot of their time.

Just a few miles inland is the town of Hayle which offers a good choice of pubs and places to eat and a few miles further lies the popular harbour town of St Ives with its countless cafes, bars and restaurants.

Most people come to Cornwall for the beaches and here at Gwithian we are surrounded by them. We are a 10 minute walk from the golden sands of St Ives Bay and a short drive from most of Cornwall’s popular beaches. You could even find secret sheltered coves where it’s just you and the seals without too much effort.

Gwithian is the closest beach to the accommodation and makes up the northern most point of St Ives Bay. At low tide the beach stretches all the way down to Hayle over 3 miles away. The beach is well known for surfing, windsurfing and rock pooling, and is serviced by several excellent beach cafes and bars.

Fishermans Cove is where you go for solitude. Tucked away on the north cliffs a mile outside of Gwithian and down a precarious path this is the place to go to get away from it all. Beware though, it’s also known for being a nudist beach!

Portreath is 6 miles away driving east on the coastal road. This is a cracking little beach that is great for rock pooling or lazing on the sand. The car park is right on the waterfront so access is superb and there are some pleasant cafes and waterside pubs to go for your lunch and dinner.

If you fancy a bit of a drive then Porthcurno on the south coast is well worth the effort. Pure white sand and bright blue seas combine for the perfect day out. The Minack Theatre is just on the cliffs nearby so after you’ve showered off the sand you can take in some culture. Make sure you book in advance as tickets are hard to come by in the summer months. Porthcurno is a 45 minute drive away from the accommodation.

Poldhu and Church Cove are neighbouring beaches down on the Lizard peninsula and are as quiet as you could hope to find in Cornwall. There are good sized National Trust car parks nearby and there is an excellent golf course (Mullion Golf Club) in the area should you want to bring your clubs.

While you are down with us in Cornwall, why not have a surfing lesson? You don’t need too many excuses to get down to the beach, but surfing is another great reason to get some sand between your toes.

Through our sister company, Gwithian Academy of Surfing, we can provide you with everything that you will need to get you ‘up and riding’, making your holiday truly memorable. Whether you just want to hire a board and wetsuit to splash around in Gwithian’s beautiful waves or enroll on a course of lessons all of our guests get a 20% discount at the surf school.

We are spoilt for choice when it comes to places to eat and drink in Gwithian, Hayle and St Ives.

Within a very short walk of our self catering holiday lets is the excellent Red River Inn. The Red River Inn has got a fantastic reputation for food and real ales and it’s the focal point of the village. A few hundred metres further down the road is the Sandsifter and Godrevy Cafe which both sell good quality lunches and evening meals. Both are close to the beach and have large car parks nearby.

Heading into Hayle there are several pubs selling inexpensive meals as well as two Indian restaurants- the Balti King and Grameen Tandoori – a Chinese called Eastern Empire and two Italians – Pizza Patio and the newly opened Antonini’s. The Salt Bar is another good place to eat and it’s also a lively bar on Saturday nights.

If it’s fish you’re after then St Ives is the place. There are far too many for me to list here but Ocean Grill, Cafe Pasta and Seafood Cafe come highly recommended. If you really want to treat yourself then Porthminster Cafe is out of this world and the view from the dining room across the bay is worth the price in itself. There are several bars and pubs lining the harbour and Fore Street so just take your pick. They are all pretty good with Hub and the famous Sloop Inn being the pick of the bunch.
