R73 - Cliff End
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Let by Helpful Holidays: In Whitsand Bay, around 30' above the beach on the very edge of Tregonhawke Cliff, a recently built, detached, single-storey cliff-side chalet with stunning, uninterrupted panoramic sea views. Cliff End is aptly named, about 350 yards of mostly steep/rough footpath (occasional steps) lead to it from the road down gorse and flower-strewn cliffs. A large enclosed deck (table/chairs) along the front is an idyllic spot for surf, sea and ship-watching, small level lawned area (barbecue) at the side. Below the chalet, footpath winds (some very steep/narrow parts/steps) down to the sandy beach.
Inside, fresh modern seaside decor with simple, stylish red, white and blue theme. Two sets of ceiling-high glass doors from deck to light-filled open-plan kitchen/living/dining room (microwave) with polished oak floors, TV/DVD, iPod dock, comfy sofa (converts to double bed for alternative sleeping). Double bedroom (180o views, doors to deck) and a smart twin with side sea views. Shower-room (suite).
Outstanding location/views make it worth the steep climb. Stout shoes/torch essential. Not suitable for anyone with mobility problems. No children under 7, except pre-crawling babies.

The West Country region
South Cornwall: between the river Tamar and river Fowey and south of Bodmin Moor is inland Cornwall at its most gentle and lovely: deep, wooded valleys (including on Bodmin Moor's southern edge) between sheep and cattle-grazed fields; tidal creeks (exceptionally pretty Lerryn is on one of them). Most of it is delightfully by-passed by main roads.
On the coast are long sandy beaches (Whitsand Bay), high headlands and sandy coves at the foot of cliffs (Lantic Bay) to walk to, two of Cornwall's loveliest cove villages (Kingsand, Cawsand) and a classic fishing village (Polperro). From Looe - river-mouth fishing village/resort with sandy beach - you can fish and sail. Round here Daphne du Maurier lived and wrote. A branch line railway chugs pleasantly from Liskeard to Looe. Don't miss the Musical Instrument Museum near St Keyne. Just to the west is Cornwall's star modern attraction, The Eden Project, worth a once-a-year visit into the future indefinite, and Lanhydrock, a very lovely National Trust house and garden. Beyond them begins the extraordinary and spectacular china clay country, good for a visit (excellent museum). You should go to Cotehele beside the Tamar, too, and Calstock for the 'messing about in boats' activity.
Whitsand Bay: 5 mile stretch of sand and rocks, uncrowded because no roads to the shore, between Rame Head and Portwrinkle. Millbrook, 1 mile; Kingsand/Cawsand, 2. Cliffs slope down to the beach, with chalets in places (see also Freathy). Acclaimed restaurant (limited opening hours), 250 yards from top of cliff path. Beach café and lifeguards in summer; good surfing. HMS Scylla (sunk deliberately for marine research) attracts divers. Good beach fishing; coarse fishing nearby. Cliff-top golf. Coastal walks.

This cottage offer unrivalled views and wonderful tranquillity. It's very clean, well decorated & appointed, especially given its location - be prepared for a long climb down!
Not suitable for those who may find a steep descent down the cliff a problem. Recommend you arrive in daylight to find this easily if it's your first stay here. All in all, well worth the effort down (& back up) the cliff!
Thanks for your comments. We agree it's a special place and are delighted to hear you enjoyed your holiday.
