Three Things That Make Three Mile Beach

Three Mile Beach is a collection of fifteen luxury self-catering beach houses in Gwithian Towans, Cornwall. But it’s more than that; it’s a dedication to the bliss of freedom. Dune cartwheels. Log-burner lounging. Watersport mastering. Cornwall exploring. Starlit feasting. Here, doing nothing and doing everything live together in pure and easy harmony.

We don’t take for granted how close we are to stunning beaches and never-ending Atlantic Ocean views. We celebrate it in our design, our collaborations with local watersport experts, our food, and our supremely easy-going nature. The privacy and spaciousness of our beach houses make them as perfect for low-key, loved-up couples as they are for families, retreat-sharing friends, and wave-searching kite surfers. That’s Three Mile Beach.

Where we are is both blissfully untamed and easily reached. It’s perfect for escaping, going off-grid, hunkering down and switching off. And for switching on to the beautiful power of the sea, wildlife normally unseen, St Ives’ legendary art scene, a delicious food and drink dream, and the freshness of never-ending exotic subtropical green.

An inspired couple

Three Mile Beach came to be when Craig and Jo asked their friend-in-the-know where the UK’s best kitesurfing could be found. She said Gwithian. Craig and Jo visited. And nowhere else got a look in. They had found their home equivalent of their beloved New Zealand’s rugged nature.

And once living here, Craig’s 15 years of growing his company, Audley Travel, combined with Jo’s cherished childhood memories of endless sun and sea-soaked Cornish summers to dream up a place that redefines the self-catering experience and shares the wonder of these wilds.


Kids can run free. Parents can relax. Dogs are welcome. Sand gets everywhere. Privacy is respected. Gatherings are spontaneous. Your pace is your pace. Formalities are left at the door. Alarm clocks are on silent.

Stocking up to cook is easy. Eating out is easy. Having our private chef over is more than easy. The tide might dictate your day, but we never will. We’re just here to help you love your time.
