The chalet

This is a traditional 1960's wooden chalet nestling in the Gwithian dunes. The Little Blue House is owned by a family who have cared for it over the last twenty years. It is situated in the furthest corner of the site, chosen for its relative privacy and immediate access to the dunes. It has developed its own comfortable style after successive improvements and additions and aims to offer a welcoming and comfortable getaway from which to explore the Cornish coastline. Those who have taken to open water swimming will appreciate the ability to stroll through the dunes to the sea for a morning dip regardless of the weather. For those of a less extreme disposition there are beautiful coastal walks as well surfing of course.

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 beaches run from Godrevy Lighthouse in the East, made famous by Virginia Woolfe's novel "To the Lighthouse", all the way to the wild birdlife haven of Hayle estuary in the West.

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 rockpools 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. Over the years Three Shades of Blue has featured in the Sunday Times Travel Magazine and the Guardian Travel section.

Holidays with us

The site is very family friendly and only has thirty chalets. The dunes offer endless opportunities for children and the occasional adult to build, climb and slide down the steep sided pockets of sand. 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.

The chalet is well equipped with all the essentials for a relaxed holiday. There's no wifi though some may see this as a blessing. If you or the kids get desperate, you can access the Caravan Club wifi for a small charge. Most mobiles have sufficient coverage to deal with absolute necessities.

To check for availability of the chalet check the calendar. This is usually kept up to date. You can fill in the contact form at the bottom of this site and I'll normally get back to you within 24 hours.

You'll be sent a booking form and if you decide to book we will take a deposit of 50% of the total amount when you return the form. You will be asked to send us the balance three to four weeks before your holiday starts. We'll then send you the details regarding access etc. If for some reason you don't get a booking form, you can download one here.
