Situated in an enviable position just above the beach with uninterrupted south facing views over Whitsand bay, The Old Tea Hut is a fabulous place for a family holiday or a short break whatever the time of year. it was first built in the 1920s and has recently undergone an extensive programme of refurbishment, retaining much of its quirky character and now offering simple, flexible self contained accommodation for a maximum of 8 people in what was formerly a thriving cafe.

There are three bedrooms: two comfortable doubles, one with great views and the other with an open fireplace, and one small double or large single, which has room in addition for a travel cot (which we can provide). Opening off the kitchen the living space offers flexible sitting and dining options and generous double corner sofa bed.. French windows from this room open into the conservatory which has window seating overlooking the garden and the sea beyond. This is a spectacular place for a sundowner... its southerly aspect and wide open views ensure that you never need miss a great sunset at any time of the year! In addition the bedroom with the open fire can be converted easily into a cosy sitting room for chilly evenings or winter breaks. The kitchen is a mix of old and new... its vintage red formica cupboards and tiled lino floor give it a retro feel, whilst its large fridge/freezer, modern 4 ring hob and oven, stainless steel pots and pans and roomy work surfaces mean you won't be slumming it too much. There is no dishwasher, but washing up is a positive pleasure - it really would be hard to find a sink with a better view! The shower room is newly fitted with a ceramic tiled floor, underfloor heating. electric shower and contemporary white sanitary ware. A washing machine and dryer are available for your use, located in an outhouse opposite the back door (shared with the owners who live next door). There is a table and chairs in the garden for dining al fresco and a barbecue and outside 'Chiminea'. There are solar panels on the roof and electricity and gas are included in the rent.

You really will arrive and not want to get in your car again. Just step out of the door to go surfing, swimming, walking and birdwatching. You can meander down to the beach or along the cliff paths, explore local fishing villages and ancient buildings, eat wonderful locally produced food, or simply sit and enjoy the ever-changing view! There are plenty of books and games for rainy days and you can even arrive and leave by bus! There is a regular service which stops at the top of the footpath and will take you all the way to Plymouth train station via the Torpoint ferry, or to the pedestrian Cremyll Ferry/

The beach is lifeguarded during the summer months. It is an ever-changing scene and there is something for everyone. Rocks to clamber over, waves to ride, sheltered corners to sit and read a book. At low tide there is a huge expanse of sand and you can walk for miles along the beach, play games on the sand or in the warm shallow water of numerous pools left by the receding tide. Perfect for dams, sandcastles and for little ones messing about in the water. At high tide the water comes right up the beach and on a calm day you can swim from the rocky steps. Stormy days offer a complete contrast. Light the fire and curl up with a book listening to the wind and the waves crashing, or wrap up well and explore the blustery cliff paths. You can walk for miles, round Rame Head to the villages of Kingsand and Cawsand, and on to Mount Edgecombe, or across the clifftop fields past Tregantle Fort towards Portwrinkle and Downderry.

The Cornwall region

The Rame Peninsula is the hidden, undiscovered gem of SE Cornwall. it is an ancient magical place, full of contrasts. Rugged cliffs, ancient churches, hermit's caves, old forts, and pretty fishing villages with tiny streets and picturesque cottages. There is something for everyone. Wander through the stunning coastal gardens of Mount Edgcumbe, ramble along miles of cliff paths enjoying the magnificent views and the smell of wild honeysuckle. Surf, swim, make sandcastles, run in bare feet along huge empty tide washed beaches, then climb the cliff path and eat delicious locally produced food at the aptly named (and nationally acclaimed) View restaurant.

Separated from Plymouth by the River Tamar it is not the easiest place to get to... which perhaps explains why it has retained its particular charm. It is not on the way to anywhere and people come, and stay, simply because it is beautiful and rural and friendly and a welcome respite from the cut and thrust of modern life. There are many artists who make their home here. it is a place to think, to write, to be creative. just to be.

Whitsand Bay

The cliffs are rugged and wild, extraordinarily beautiful, and a huge contrast from the pretty fishing villages. There are a myriad of footpaths and an eclectic, anarchic mix of shacks, huts and chalets dotted all over, some perched perilously on edges, other nestling in tiny almost hidden valleys. These have evolved since the first ones were built in the 1920's. Some are now pretty sumptuous, but many originals still exist, some still without electricity, and often handed down from generation to generation and lovingly cared for by their present owners. Families return year after year, bringing their children to enjoy this special place in the same way that they themselves did as children.
