Tucked away on the edge of Upton Towans Nature Reserve behind the magnificent dune system that forms the backdrop to Gwithian Beach, Salt Life is a stunning eco retreat with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and its own private hot tub.
Perfect for friends or family looking to escape to the rugged beauty of the wilder north Cornish coastline, this home is as environmentally sympathetic as it is good-looking where locally-sourced materials such as timber framing and bee bricks, as well as air source heat pumps, underfloor heating and high levels of insulation reduce the carbon footprint of each home. Beautifully styled throughout, Salt Life’s interior is best described as warm minimalist, with a sumptuously furnished space filled with modern design elements, finds just the right balance between paired-back simplicity and luxurious comfort.
In keeping with its beach house persona this home incorporates that all important indoor / outdoor lifestyle, with large sliding doors leading from the open plan living area out on to the private terrace. Here you’ll discover a large hot tub as well as a dining table and chairs, creating a gorgeous fresh-air space to chill or socialize in, while doubling up as the ideal spot to enjoy an alfresco breakfast before hitting the beach. Positioned within a meandering stroll’s distance of Gwithian Beach’s three mile long sandy stretch, days are spent sunbathing and sandcastle building before a cooling surf or a leisurely swim in the clear waters of the Atlantic. Being situated within the untamed landscape of a nature reserve means that the opportunity for outdoor adventure abounds, with coastal paths offering visitors a chance to take in some spectacular views of St Ives Bay and the surrounding area.
Located also within just a short drive of both Hayle and St Ives, Salt Life is a wonderful base from which to experience all aspects of Cornish life; so if laid-back luxury and authentic beach holiday are what you’re after; this is the perfect place for you.
