Step Inside

Breakwater is a newly designed wooden clad beach lodge and forms part of 8 luxury lodges at Sandy Acres. Step into a welcoming hallway and straight into the heart of the lodge, the open plan living, dining and kitchen space. Every detail has been considered for guests to enjoy the luxury holiday highlife, from state of the art mod cons and sleek kitchen design to thoughtful interior style. A luxury ensuite bedroom completes the ground floor. Climb the central staircase to the first floor with a further two boutique bedrooms and two contemporary bathrooms. 

From your Holiday Door

Slide back the bi-fold doors to reveal your private decked veranda, al fresco dining has never looked so good as you enjoy home cooked meals under the Cornish sunshine. Hop in and out of your private hot tub throughout the day and soak away the days adventures before retiring to bed. The nearest beach is Sandy Acres at Hayle accessed along the bumpy beach track on foot in approx 5-10 minutes or pack up the car and drive a short distance to Gwithian or Godrevy Beaches, each offering a superb sand, surf and cafe culture. Cornwall offers a plethora of watersports so you are well placed to grab a board and hit the waves, kayak the coastline, learn to paddle board or perhaps a sail on the South coast? A quirky cafe in a converted 20ft steel container located at the entrance to Sandy Acres, great for coffee and cake!
