Introducing Oystercatcher

Oystercatcher sits in the dunes behind one of the UK's most spectacular golden beaches. It's enchanting yet simple, the charm perhaps that it is 'just' a beach house, painted with love in restful pastel colours and tones, and decorated with care and attention.

Cornwall, England, United Kingdom

There are 30 other similar chalets in the area - some are lived in by their owners and some (like ours) are rented when the owners aren't home. Others are exclusively holiday rentals. In our experience it is a quiet, friendly and respectful group of people. Dogs are permitted (except July and August) but all owners are asked to keep their dogs on a lead outside of their chalet.

The space

Oystercatcher is a wooden beach chalet with a deck and parking for two cars. Its open plan living, the kitchen is stocked full of utensils for cooking (pots, pans, dishes, bowls) there's a kettle, microwave, toaster, cooker with hob, Smeg fridge with freezer compartment inside, kitchen scales & hand mixer for those guests who enjoy culinary exploits. Outside July and August (when dogs are not allowed on the site) you can even bring your pooch...

Oystercatcher sits among the towans (tewyn) a Cornish meaning sand dune. If you walk from Oystercatcher to the beach you will drop down over 160 feet, so you get an amazing view of St Ives through to Godrevy lighthouse on the walk. The highest point in the towans is Phillack Towans towards Hayle which is 263 feet above sea level. Each area of the towans has been given a different name - look out for Riviere Towans, Mexico Towans, Common Towans, Phillack Towans, Upton Towans and Gwithian Towans.
