Revised plans for Gylly Beach Café


Following meetings with residents and stakeholders, the team behind Gylly Beach Café have shared their updated plans for the space.

The revised plan, which was submitted to Cornwall Council today, sees the additional seating extension to the front of the beach and boat moorings halted.

Instead, a brand-new seated decking area to the side of the café will replace the current watersports containers, with renovation plans to upgrade and improve the existing terrace area.

Healeys purchased Gylly Beach Café in August last year under the Cyderhouse Co Ltd Group. MD, Joe Healey said: “Last autumn, we circulated a first round of visuals for ideas to improve the café.  Since then, we’ve met with local stakeholders and residents to discuss the plans and hear their views. We’ve listened to the feedback, which was incredibly supportive overall, but also highlighted that the previous plan for the decking area on the beach would take away from prime spots for sunbathers.

“Thanks to the feedback and suggestions of our local community, the main changes in our revised plan see the watersports containers relocated slightly to the east side of the beach, in a less used area, to allow for new sundeck seating. Additionally, the existing terrace will transform into an inside-outside experience for guests of the café, without imposing on prime beach space.

“The café has lacked investment in recent years, and it is hoped this investment will bring it back to life. We’re excited about the potential to enhance the offering for both the local community and visitors so that they can continue to enjoy the space throughout the year, not just in the peak seasons. Gylly Beach Café is known for its iconic views, amazing food and friendly atmosphere, and we look forward to giving Gylly the investment it deserves.”
