Luxurious self-catering holiday accommodation in the rural heart of Cornwall, with peace and tranquillity, views for miles and nature on your doorstep.  Three different properties, offering holidays for relaxing, or being as energetic as you wish – there is easy access to the beach, great surfing, and plentiful walking and cycling routes; perfect for families, friends and couples.

Secluded and charming, Gwithian is a lovely little village with a cafes, refurbished pub, a church with elements dating from Norman times, and easy access to more modern amenities such as cafés, shops and surf schools.

 Close to the extensive beach at Gwithan Towans, there are two nature reserves within a short walk, as well as easy access to the South West Coast Path. Godrevy Lighthouse punctuates the horizon, and you can often see seals on Godrevy Point, with occasional sightings of dolphins and basking sharks.

Guest Review

With a Cornish husband (born in Penzance and family homes in Hayle and Lelant plus our son went to Falmouth Uni) we have been regular visitors to Cornwall for over 30 years. In more recent years without family in Cornwall we have rented cottages and while we had Nancy our 1979 Vdub we camped at Gwithian campsite. December 23 was our first visit to Parc Place and it won’t be our last. We have already booked for April and December 2024. Gwithian and Godrevy are my favourite places in Cornwall, so when we came across Parc Place we booked. From the moment we made contact with Zoe she was brilliant, efficient and friendly. The cottage is fantastic and my husband and I agree that it is the best cottage we have ever booked in Cornwall. It has been beautifully renovated and thoughtfully equipped. The cottage has everything you need for a fantastic stay in terms of fully stocked kitchen, really comfy beds, fab showers etc. It had really cold weather during our stay but the cottage was always warm and cosy. The location couldn’t be better, quiet location, short walk to the pub and best of all short walk to the beautiful beaches of Gwithian and Godrevy. So looking forward to our next visit.

The Old Farmhouse, Parc Place and Sunset Retreat form a trio of holiday accommodation properties, that make the most of this charming corner of the world, whilst offering differing experiences to guests.

I understand that packing to take children on holiday can feel overwhelming, so have ensured that cots, toddler beds, high-chairs and stair gates are available in each property. In addition to these, toys, books, and child-friendly cutlery and crockery are kept at each place, so that your little one is entertained, as well as kept safe.
