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.

Lovely little cottage with a wonderful view out to sea. Very clean and well laid out facilities, the wifi was excellent,. The walk up to the car park got the blood pumping but the view from the top was its own reward.

Wow! A little piece of heaven. The most beautiful location and so peaceful apart from the sound of the sea. The view was just phenomenal.

Absolutely stunning the best views I've ever seen, but its not for the faint hearted or people with disabilities as the walk down to the property is tough, so I'd advise to bring cases on wheels as nothing prepared us for the 5 trips down with luggage and food shopping.

The property is faultless not a mark anywhere to be seen, and the owner has impeccable taste. Hide

Idleour is in a superb location, although you do have to be physically fit to get there and to get to and from the beach below, due to the steep path. If this doesn't put you off, then I'd highly recommend this property. It's very clean and well looked after. You can sit and gaze for hours at the sea, either cosily inside with the glass front shut,Read more or with most of the front open to the elements, or on the deck. We plan to return next year. Hide

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
