Property code: 78653

This superb property nestles in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on Tregonhawke Cliff, overlooking the sea, and has been lovingly furnished in a light and contemporary style, offering a luxury coastal escape.

Studded into the cliff face with prime views spanning from Rame Head to Falmouth, this property promises an unforgettable escape to guests. Spacious and welcoming, this pretty chalet is an opportunity to embrace a slower pace of life in this lesser-known corner of Cornwall. Wake up to the sound of crashing waves, head out to the terrace and soak in the hot tub, taking in the 180-degree vista.

Whether you’re off down the coast path to the beach or you’re sunbathing on the sun loungers on the terrace, you’re never far from the sea here. The interiors are light and airy with wood panelling and soft blue tones of the ocean giving off a beach hut atmosphere. The open-plan living area is filled with sunlight in the day, but light the wood burner in the evening and the space becomes a cosy place to enjoy a romantic meal or your favourite TV show snuggled up on the sofa.

Take long walks along the South West Coast Path from Polhawn Fort (2 miles) or Queen Adelaide’s Grotto (3 miles). If you’re looking for a little more hustle and bustle, spend the day in Plymouth (22 miles) where there are museums, parks, pubs and restaurants to keep you busy all day. Wild Futures Monkey Sanctuary (10 miles) is a hit with people of all ages, as is the Tamar Valley Donkey Park (23.5 miles).

  • 1 king-size bed
  • 1 en-suite shower room with shower and WC
  • Electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge with ice compartment
  • Wood burner (first basket of logs included)
  • Roadside parking, subject to availability
  • Pub and shop 1 mile and beach, restaurant and cafe within walking distance
  • Smart TV in the lounge area
  • Charcoal BBQ
  • Regret no children or infants
  • Outside shower
  • Storage for bikes and surfboards in the shed

The Dell is absolutely everything that could have wished for. The location with its view, the lodge was well set out and totally private. There is plenty of kitchen equipment. The bed was super comfortable, the shower was good, strong and warm. And to top it all was the fantastic hot tub over looking Whitsand Bay.

A superbly well maintained chalet with stunning views of a less well known corner of Cornwall.

We loved staying at The Dell. It is very well equipped and as the weather was amazing we were able to spend most of the time outside on the decking. The hot tub was a great addition.

There is nothing we can suggest to improve this place as the attention to detail is impressive and we would recommend it to anyone who just wants to walk, enjoy the sea views and chill.

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.
