Dunes at Upton Towans

Home // Locations // Cornwall // Dunes at Upton Towans

Dunes is a collection of two luxury eco-friendly holiday homes on the edge of Upton Towans Nature Reserve in West Cornwall.

They sit right by a three-mile stretch of beach and coastal dunes and are designed to blend in harmoniously with the surrounding rugged landscape. When staying here, you’re just a stone’s throw away from the coast, which offers scenic walking routes and beautiful views of St Ives Bay. There are several towns a short drive away, so you’re never too far away from what you need.


Each of the properties can comfortably accommodate up to four people in two bedrooms. There’s ample space throughout and the interiors are light and bright.

The living area is open-plan and, in keeping with the Dunes’ eco-friendly credentials, has upcycled furniture along with underfloor heating.

The master bedroom offers a generous amount of space and the twin room comes with a selection of children’s games and books to help keep the little ones entertained.

Large sliding doors lead to the patio, where you can relax, have a barbecue or unwind in the hot tub. There’s also a garden complete with a swing set for children.

While staying here, you simply must make the most of your location right by the beach. Go on leisurely strolls and take in the salty sea air, feel the sand beneath your feet and maybe even go for a dip in the sea. Or if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, visit one of the local water sports companies and take to the sea on a surfboard, paddleboard or kayak.

The beach is just over a five-minute walk away, so you can easily spend as much time as you want there. If you’re keen to explore the area further, visit nearby towns such as Hayle, Loggans and St Ives, or perhaps drive down to Lizard Point, the southernmost place in mainland Britain.

Things to Do

Paradise Park Wildlife Sanctuary – This is an award-winning wildlife sanctuary that’s home to 1,300 birds across 120 species. Other animals you can see here include otters, miniature donkeys, eagles and red squirrels. 

Tehidy Park Golf Club – Visitors welcome at any time. The course offers an excellent challenge and value for money for golfers of all abilities

The Minack Theatre – Just over 40 minutes away is this unique open-air theatre, which is built into the side of a cliff. Shows are put on throughout the year and are well worth seeing thanks to the theatre’s unique location. However, it’s not fully accessible and some may find the seating arrangements uncomfortable.

Eating Out

The Terrace – Located in the nearby small town of Hayle, The Terrace is a classic bistro serving a range of dishes. Its food is locally sourced and its atmosphere is friendly and pleasant. The name of the restaurant comes from its covered and heated terrace, which the owners try to keep open year-round.

Loggans Moor Brewers Fayre – Just outside of Hayle is this family-friendly pub and restaurant. It’s well presented and its menu offers plenty of choices for everyone.

Salt Kitchen Bar – Also in Hayle is Salt Kitchen Bar, a vibrant and contemporary restaurant and bar serving an array of Mediterranean dishes. The menu also offers seafood specialities, tasty burgers and delectable steaks.
