Three Mile Beach is a collection of 15 have-it-all beach houses on the northern Cornish coast, four miles east of St. Ives, set to launch in May 2021. 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. Each of the two, three and four-bedroom houses offer 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. Kitchens are 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. 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.
