The chalets


These are three traditional 1960's wooden chalets nestling in the Gwithian dunes. Little Blue House, Blue Boy and Surfside are owned by three individual families who grouped together to form "Three Shades of Blue". Each chalet has two bedrooms, a bathroom/WC and open plan kitchen and living area. They sleep six comfortably and are equipped with most modern coveniences. Each has its own unique style which can be seen in the gallery.

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 chalets have featured in the Sunday Time 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 chalets are well equipped with all the essentials for a relaxed holiday. There's no wifi in the chalets though some may see this as a blessing. If you or the kids get desperate, you can access the Caravan Club wifi from The Little Blue House and there is a connection to be found in the caravan park next door.

To check for availability of the chalets, send us an email to info@threeshadesofblue.co.uk or fill in the contact form at the bottom of this site. We'll normally get back to you within 24 hours. Or give Jane a call on 020 8854 9614.

If you decide to book we will initially take a deposit of 50% of the total amount and you will be asked to send us the balance two weeks before your holiday starts. We'll then send you the details regarding access etc.

Once you're happy and have agreed a date, download our booking form, complete it and send it back to us.
