With stunning views and beautiful fixtures, you can live in luxury during your stay at this breath-taking property situated on the cliff tops above Whitsand Bay.

Studded into the cliff face with prime views of Cornish sunsets and surf, Idleour promises an unforgettable escape to guests. Contemporary and comfortable, this luxury cabin is an opportunity to embrace a slower pace of life in a lesser-known corner of the South West. Wake up to the sound of crashing waves, grab a cup of coffee and step out onto the decking to watch the golden hour unfold.

Whether you're watching the tide through the floor to ceiling glass doors or you've nipped down the cliff path to Whitsand beach, you're never too far from the sea here. The interiors embrace the soothing blue and white tones of the ocean and there are plenty of nautical details dotted throughout. The open plan living space is light and airy during the day, but once the fire is lit in the evening it becomes a cosy haven.

Walk the coast path through spectacular headland and find yourself in the charming coastal villages of Kingsand and Cawsand. For more beaches, restaurants and shopping experiences the seaside town of Looe is only 15 miles away, a worthwhile trip just for the fish and chips. But if you want a unique experience of the south Cornwall coast add a boat trip to your holiday itinerary and discover a whole new vantage point.

Great location, beautiful views. A wood-burner will make the evenings special.

Fantastic views, very relaxing. The walk up and down the side of the cliff is a bit tough especially with luggage, but dont be put off by that. The beaches are truly gorgeous and not teaming with people, spectacular!

Reviewed by Lynn 5th October 2019

This is a lovely property to relax with the perfect view. Two bedrooms make it suitable for two couples or a family with older children. Not recommended for young children due to the cliff edge. We have loved a week in October despite the rain because it is just so relaxing to just sit and look outside!

We had the most amazing time at idleour, the location is perfect for long walks but we chilled out most of the time as the views are breathtaking. We will definitely use this property again. Lovely touches like the Nepresso coffee machines, super soft throws.. I could go on so a massive Thankyou to the owners.

Stunning views in a beautiful location in a wonderful holiday home- we loved every minute of it and would highly recommend

Stunning location, lovely little chalet with amazing views and sounds of the sea. The property would definitely benefit from completed fencing at the front of the property, it is a great drop on a cliff edge and whilst we were all very careful, it left us feeling a little uneasy.

Reviewed by Matthew 13th July 2019

This property has the most stunning location I have ever stayed in, with an uninterrupted 180 degree view of the sea, which is beautiful. The downside is that it's a good distance down a steep path to lug all your bags, even worse coming back up. You need to be fairly fit to do this. The facilities and comfort inside are very good.

Reviewed by Daniel 6th July 2019

We had a wonderful week at Idleour. It is a beautiful chalet in a beautiful location. The accommodation was private, clean, very comfortable and with all the mod cons. The views are spectacular from the Chalet over looking the sea and beach. The telescope supplied was great for ship spotting, we were able to identify a number of naval ships which wRead moreas good fun. The area is not overrun with tourists so you have a sense of having almost all of it to yourself. Hide

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
