London: 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, Three Mile Beach is aiming to “redefine 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 interiors see local Cornish craftsmanship sit alongside eclectic artworks sourced from Burkinshaw and Le Bon’s far-flung travels around the globe, while the glass-topped cellars house games and entertainment, designed to bring guests of all ages together.
Kitchens are equipped to ensure guests can dine in the beach houses themselves, but options are also available to book private chefs, visit the Three Mile Beach street food truck or explore the collection of local restaurants nearby.
Just a stone’s throw from the rolling waves of Gwithian Beach, popular with surfers, paddle-boarders and kite surfers alike, Three Mile Beach will arrange wetsuit and surfboard hire delivered straight to guests’ doors, whilst group and private surf lessons can be organised with a nearby surf school.
With their own home just a minute’s walk away, Three Mile Beach is a hugely personal project for both Burkinshaw and Le Bon, through which they hope to share their surroundings, allowing guests to disconnect from the rush of modern life or dive head first into adrenaline-fuelled adventures.
Prices will start from £1,150 per week for a three-bedroom house [up to six-seven guests] including a welcome hamper in low season, and from £3,100 in high season.
