Hayle holidays

Holidays to Hayle are bound to be packed full of water sports activity, eating and staring adoringly at the views. Hayle and Gwithian Beach is one long continuation of golden sand when the tide is out. It's over 3 miles long!

Water sports enthusiasts are in heaven when they choose to stay at one of Hayle holiday cottages. The beach is never far away nor is the roar of the sea showcasing some of Cornwall’s finest waves.

Hillcrest, our holiday rental in Hayle is so close to the beach and sea, you can walk there with your surfboard and wetsuit out from the house!

Nature in Hayle

Godrevy Point is a headland next to Gwithian Beach and just around the corner, you’ll find Mutton Cove which is the winter residence of a seal colony. For optimum seal spotting come when the tide is out and take a pair of binoculars to peer down at them from a safe and kind distance. If you see more than 65 you’ll have broken our personal record.

The RSPB Nature Reserve at Hayle Estuary is home to so many different birds. Winter is one of the best times to visit Hayle Estuary. You can see flocks of Teals and Wigeons and maybe a vagrant Ring-billed Gull from North America. Each year, up to 18,000 migrant and wintering waterfowl flock to the Hayle estuary – especially during chilly weather as conditions in Cornwall are milder than everywhere else in the UK.

During spring and autumn, Hayle Estuary is a great place to spot migrant wading birds, gulls and terns. In summer, if you are lucky, you may catch sight of an Osprey.

Dog-friendly Hayle

Hayle has to be one of Cornwall’s dog-friendliest spots. There are sections of the long beach that are dog-friendly all year round plus there are miles of walks on the Towans. Across the estuary from Hayle beach is Porthkidney Sands that is dog-friendly all year round and is miles long and wide when the tide is out.  Many of the places to eat in Hayle are dog-friendly inside and out so your family friend can always be part of the holiday fun.

What our guests say …

Hayle gives us everything we need - and the dogs love the beach and sand dunes!

Some towns are too heavily geared towards tourism for me. I prefer somewhere I can still relate to as a real town. Hayle's got it all.

Discovering Hayle, its ultra-long beach and its cute range of independent shops was like a revelation to us. We know Cornwall really well but had never really stopped in Hayle before. Now we use it as our off-season base to go off exploring.
