We had an amazing week at the Buoys. It was clean, bright and right on the edge of a fantastic maze of sand dunes. The location is perfect for beaches and cliff walks and we walked our dog's socks off - I didn't want to...More

About the neighbourhood
The three miles of golden sands of Hayle-Gwithian beaches are within a two minute drive, or a fifteen minute walk through the dunes. Gwithian and Upton Towans (a large site of special scientific interest, with abundant flowers, unusual plants and bird life - is ideal for nature lovers), providing hours of safe play for children and beautiful and relaxing walks for adults.
Getting around
A car is not essential if you are single or a couple back packing and want to travel lightly. You are virtually on the Cornish coastal path and 3 miles of golden sand... a walkers/surfers paradise! Local buses and trains can assist with exploring further afield. A car will give you complete freedom to explore and not restrict you to a timetable.
