Three Mile Beach, a collection of 15 have-it-all Cornish beach houses opening Spring 2021

Easter 2021 will see the highly-anticipated launch of Three Mile Beach, a collection of 15 have-it-all beach houses on the northern Cornish coast, four miles east of St. Ives. Created by Audley Travel founder, Craig Burkinshaw and his partner, Joanne Le Bon, Three Mile Beach is designed to evoke the carefree fun and nostalgia of childhood seaside holidays.

Hidden among sand dunes, coastal grasses and palms, but just a heartbeat from far-reaching golden sands, Three Mile Beach redefines the self-catering experience while offering comfort in the wilds. Catering to couples, families, groups and four-legged friends, each of the two, three and four-bedroom houses has been designed to offer privacy and a haven of laid-back luxury with open plan kitchen-lounge-diners, deep sofas, warming log burners and wrap-around terraces complete with sunken cedar hot tubs, barrel saunas, and barbecues. The playful interiors see local Cornish craftmanship sit happily alongside eclectic artworks sourced from Craig and Jo’s far-flung travels around the globe, while the sunken glass-topped cellars house a plethora of games and entertainment, designed to bring guests of all ages together.

Kitchens are exquisitely well-equipped to ensure feasting at home is a breeze, but those who don’t feel like cooking can book talented private chefs, nip to the Three Mile Beach street food truck, or explore the many fabulous local restaurants. Just a stone’s throw from the rolling waves of Gwithian Beach, adored by surfers, paddle-boarders and kite surfers, Three Mile Beach will arrange hassle-free wetsuit and surfboard hire delivered straight to guests’ doors, whilst group and private surf lessons can be organised with a nearby surf school. With Craig and Jo’s own home just a minute’s walk away, Three Mile Beach is a hugely personal project, through which they hope to share this raw and rugged natural playground, perfect in equal measure for disconnecting from the rush of modern life, or diving head first into adrenaline-fueled adventures.

From lesser-known coves and undiscovered walks, seaside pursuits or fitness, to up and coming chefs and insider access to galleries and cultural hotspots, the Three Mile Beach team make it their business to know the lay of the land and guests can expect to be fast-tracked to the very best of West Cornwall.

Prices start from GBP1,150 per week for a three-bedroom house (up to 6-7 guests) including welcome hamper in low season, and from GBP3,100 in high season.
