Stunning luxury beach chalet with some of the finest sea views in Europe. With complete privacy, and a mix of traditional and luxury this is the ultimate romantic retreat.

Nestled into the Tregonhawke Cliff at Whitsand Bay, this traditional Cornish beach chalet has both great privacy and completely breathtaking views from Rame Head to Falmouth. With a 0.5-mile walk down to the beach, this is the ideal location for a morning surf or walk to start off your day. The retreat even has a private decked area straight out of your bedroom, so you can watch the sunrise with the sound of the waves just below, or dine alfresco under the stars.

This property is ideal for a romantic getaway, with bright yet cosy touches that make you feel at home instantly. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is a great place to spend a quiet night in, with a woodburner to keep you warm and a well-equipped kitchen to cook up a storm. The sofa can become a double bed for additional guests or is useful for a film night. As up to two dogs are also allowed, they can join you snuggled up by the fire. The comfortable bedroom with subtle decorative touches can ensure a good night's sleep after a day in the sea air.

The surrounding landscape has much to offer, with splendid walks along the South West Coast Path with your canine companions, down to the exceptional views at Rame Head. The nearby Cawsand and Kingsand twin villages provide the perfect spot to enjoy a bite to eat and a walk along the beaches. Slightly further afield is the Mount Edgecumbe House and Country Park, with stunning architecture and beautiful grounds, just 7 miles away.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This is a great place for a relaxing getaway. It's well worth the walk from the parking space - and the beach below is well worth the walk as well.

The location is second to none. The views are fabulous, even on rainy days. Cottage warm and welcoming and Paul, the owner, was very helpful giving us tips on where to go and where to eat out. The day bed proved to be a real winner, curling up in the evening with a glass of wine. The path to the cottage is steep in parts but very manageable for us.

It was an idyllic location, beautiful scenery, the chalet fully equipped and comfortable. The only draw back is the slope up and down to the beach and also the car parking, Fine for us, but not for people who are not agile. Welcome gifts on arrival were much appreciated and owner kept in touch which was very good.

Location

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.
